East Thorne – Bude


Sleep under the stars with your canine pal at your side, in one of the stylish Roundhouses at East Thorne. Of the five onsite, two are dog friendly, meaning that you can enjoy the quirky, modern interior that contrasts with the humble countryside setting. Enjoy a little high-end luxury, whilst being immersed in nature. Think industrial-chic, sumptuous fabrics, cosy wood-burners and under floor heating with luxe fittings that are extended to the stylish en-suite bathrooms and individual hot tubs, right outside your door. Your four-legged friend’s tail will be wagging with joy at having miles of the north Cornish countryside to discover, just a stone’s throw away.

If you’d prefer a little more space for yourself and your fur-ball, there are also two dog-friendly cottages onsite, featuring homely touches, whilst being practically equipped and with calming, natural coastal palettes, providing the perfect backdrop to your stay.

Luxury Coastal will provide treats for all four-legged guests, supplied by Devon’s natural pet food supplier, Forthglade. Dog bowls are also provided in the properties and there is an on-site hot water dog-dunk behind the shower block, which is great for rinsing off your mucky pals after muddy and sandy walks!

Unfortunately, at present there are no designated areas where dogs are allowed to run free on site, though watch this space, as the owners are in the process of acquiring some neighbouring-land that they intend to fence off as a doggy running-zone yippee!

Where to walk

There are endless beautiful walks to discover in the area, some of our favourites include Tamar Lakes, Bude Canal and Summerleaze Beach – all of which are super dog friendly throughout the year.

Stowe Woods offer a perfect woodland setting and The National Trust, Sandymouth Beach provides the most spectacular outlook, with its low tidal sands, and striking rock face – dog friendly all year-round, its a winning spot for you and your friend to enjoy, both are located just 3.5 miles from East Thorne.

There are also numerous stretches along the Coastal Path, where you can breathe in the salt-fresh air and soak up the stunning views of the north Cornish coast.

Dine with your dog

Both the Roundhouses and the Cottage Hideaways provide great spaces to hunker down by the burners and enjoy a hearty meal with your pal, though if you’d prefer to venture out, we have some great recommendations, your dog will be sure to approve of too!

The Weir is a family-friendly bistro-style eatery, with an exciting  lakeside location and a garden area, where dogs are welcome to join you for a spot of alfresco dining.

For a traditional Cornish tea, look no further than the Rustic Tea Gardens, located at Northcott Mouth, situated right on the beach, with direct access to the South West Coast Path.

Within Bude itself, a fab spot to perch and watch the waves with your salty sea-dog is the laidback Life’s a Beach café, sitting pretty on the picturesque Summerleaze Beach.

For somewhere unique, The Barge, on the canal offers a great dining spot, and four-legged friends are also welcomed into the lounge area at the Deck, Restaurant, Bar and Grill – serving British classics, using fresh local ingredients.

Doggie room rate

There is a charge of £25 per pet, per week.

What Partridge says

The Ember Room Roundhouse offered the pawfect space to cosy-up with my pack, enjoy naps by the wood burner, delicious treats from my favourite doggie brand, Forthglade and a lovely outdoor area, to sit and watch my humans in their outdoor bath. With so many great walks right on the doorstep – from endless beaches to run and play on, to acres of woodland to explore – it really was a paw-some break!
