I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Cornwall, and felt truly pampered from the moment I bounced into our pawsome dog friendly room with a pampering welcome pack and lots of space to play, including a balcony to enjoy the views across the grounds. So happy to dine with my humans in the bar over some delicious smelling food, and the acres of grounds, including wooded parkland provided lots of exciting trails to explore with plenty of Cornish-countryside sniffs. Paws crossed we can visit again soon!
