Wake to views of England’s only Cape with your best friend at your side; Cape Cornwall Club is set in a UNESCO World Heritage Site and designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). A converted farmhouse with a spectacular outlook – a large spacious restaurant/bar and function room – it’s a great spot to stay with your four-legged friend in tow with a myriad of stunning walking routes on the doorstep. The vibe is relaxed, informal and friendly with lots of quiet corners to unwind and 15 light-filled rooms with eight more being transformed. Dogs are welcomed in all of the bedrooms where they will find treats, water bowls and blankets to make them feel at home. Bedrooms are functional spaces that have been kept simple and pared back, amplifying the high ceilings and original dark wooden beams, and displaying local art; comfortable spaces, perfect for when you return after a day exploring the coastline. It’s a superb spot for those with an eclectic mix of interests, whether it’s relaxing with a book on the sunset terrace, walking the coastal path, golfing or cycling – it’s also a great base for foodies, especially seafood lovers. And for anyone who is travelling across to the Isles of Scilly, the hotel makes a great stopover before your flight or ferry crossing.
Cape Cornwall Club is also home to its own 18-hole golf course, indoor swimming pool, gym and complimentary crazy golf, perfect for when you feel like embracing a more active day. Your dog is also welcome to join you on the golf course, just be mindful of other players if you’d like them dog to tag along.
Brilliantly positioned on the South West Coast Path, there are many historical landmarks on the Tin Coast within walking distance. The hotel is also in a great location to visit the Minack Theatre, Geevor Tin Mine and Sennen Cove with both fishing and marine-discovery trips available in Penzance. The Cape Cornwall Club team offer lifts to local walking destinations so that you can walk or hike back to the hotel at your leisure and warm up in front of a cosy log fire. We particularly love the coastal path route from Pendeen lighthouse to Cape Cornwall and for a full day of walking, it’s a joy to walk the two-hour stretch along the undulating coastal path to beautiful Sennen Cove, spotting seals and sometimes pods of dolphins as you walk. Cornwall to Cot Valley another popular route and Porthgwarra beach is dog-friendly all year round.
Your pals are welcome to join you for breakfast and dinner in the spacious, light-filled restaurant-bar where you will be treated to delicious plates of local Cornish produce with a twist. Head chef, Jamie Porter has launched fine dining experiences with a focus on locally sourced produce, with zero food miles where possible. Jamie had classic training under Michel Roux, and serves up locally caught fish and shellfish from the Cape, alongside locally-reared meat and plenty of fresh and foraged vegetables and herbs. Tuck into insanely moreish pretzel bread with marmite butter, freshest Cape Cornwall crab with mango salsa, wild seabass with Priest Cove sauce and rich chocolate delice with passion fruit. There’s a range of local beers and ales on tap, alongside a well thought through wine list.
Dogs are charged at an extra £10 a night, and restricted to two per room.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Cape Cornwall Club where us four-legs are welcomed with open arms. It was great to meet resident dog, Demelza and hang out with my humans during breakfast and dinner. I received lots of fuss from the friendly staff and with so many brilliant clifftop and beach walks right on the doorstep, my tail went into overdrive. After having my photo taken at the Cape, I headed homeward one salty, but happy cockerpoo!
