Enjoy a little luxury with your four-legged friend at the Carbis Bay Estate, set to a backdrop of their privately-owned 25-acre blue flag beach.
The estate is home to eight super luxurious, dog-friendly beach lodges. With their beach-fronted position, the lodges offer a prime spot, with stunning views across to St Ives Bay and direct access to the award-winning Carbis Bay beach. Your dog will love the salt-fresh air, and being just a stick’s throw from the golden sands. Each lodge has a beach-chic vibe and offers either, three or four ensuite bedrooms, a large open-plan living space, kitchenette and private garden with hot tub, allowing you to make the most of the gorgeous sea views. They’re clad in sustainably-sourced timber, with many dog friendly elements throughout, such as the wood-cladded flooring, and floor-to-ceiling windows leading directly out onto the garden.
Settle in and enjoy laidback luxury, with mood lighting, under-floor heating and modern technology, to a backdrop of the dreamiest seascapes.
Dogs are welcome on Carbis Bay beach between 1st October and 14th May, making it the obvious choice for a blast of fresh air, in close proximately to your beach lodge. Early riser’s
will be pleased to hear that during the seasonal ban, dogs are still allowed on the beach before 8am.
Pick up the South West Coast Path, for an easy stretch to St Ives, with wonderful views over St Ives Bay, pass the sands of Carbis Bay, Porthminster beach and Porthmeor beach – the perfect stop off for refreshments. One of our favourite spots is Porthkidney Beach, with its expansive white sands, welcoming dogs all year round, its located a five-minute drive away or a half hour walk along the South West Coast Path.
We also love the circular walk from Carbis Bay via the coastal path to the monument overlooking St Ives Bay, and through the Steeple Woods nature reserve.
Dine with your canine pal at your side in the Beach Club Restaurant, with its relaxed shoreline vibe. Embrace a Mediterranean twist within the Beach Club’s modern-chic design and enjoy the sea air, right at the water’s edge, with regular live entertainment, as well as an extended lower deck. The Beach club offers the perfect spot for those wanting to enjoy relaxed plates of seasonal fare, accompanied by a refreshing cocktail by the sea.
There’s also the Deli Cafe, with its spectacular seaside setting – perfect for an iced-coffee- to-go, deeply-filled sandwiches, freshly baked treats and local ice cream. Limited seating is offered inside for wet weather days, but there is plenty of outdoor seating to take in those sea views.
If your four-legged friend is well-behaved and happy to be left in the lodge, there is also Walters on the Beach, offering stylish Cornish fine dining with a bounty of fresh fish and sea
food, and incredible views of St Ives Bay. And in St Ives itself, we love the Porthmeor Café, where dogs are welcome on the outside terrace – the ideal spot to build-your-own breakfast, sample seafood tapas or vegetarian options, after a morning jaunt along the South West Coast Path.
There is no additional charge for dogs to stay at the beach lodges.
The beachside lodges are super spacious with a lovely open-plan area for chill time, and our own private garden to play in. I loved pottering about outside, breathing in the sea air
before running down to the sandy beach to play and forage for seaweed! I also loved running free on the pawsome local beaches, of which Porthkidney rates as a personal fave.
Paws up to Carbis Bay Estate for catering for us four-legs too!
