Invite your four-legged friend to stay at this cluster of cottages-turned-coastal-retreat on the South Cornish coast. Hotel Tresanton is for those after a luxurious affair – nestled on a hillside with enviable sea vistas, thirty beautifully designed boutique-bedrooms – five of which are dog friendly – offer stunning views, whilst sub-tropical gardens, a beach club and private wooden yacht provide plenty of ways to relax on this unique stretch of coastline. Dogs are provided with beds, blankets and bowls and are welcome on the external restaurant terrace, as well as in the aptly named ‘Dogs’ Bar’ where you can tuck into a sumptuous supper, your pal at your side. Please note that dogs must be kept on a leash at all times when in public areas of the hotel.
A superb position on the Roseland Peninsula, offering remarkable views across Falmouth Bay; just ten-minutes from the village harbour and St Mawes Castle, Tresanton provides the ideal spot to explore the endless miles of south Cornish coast. The hotel is surrounded by an array of stunning coastal walks – a favourite of ours is the six-mile route from St Mawes Castle to St Just in Roseland, which takes between two to three hours depending on your pace. If you’re keen to explore further afield, take one of the passenger ferries from the harbour, running regularly throughout the day, to Falmouth and Truro, as well as St Anthony’s Head.
The ‘Dog’s Bar’ offers a wonderfully relaxed dining space with your four-legged friend, where you can enjoy seasonal plates, with a legendary Tresanton bloody Mary. In warmer months, enjoy locally sourced food on the terrace. Menus brim with native produce, showcasing Cornish suppliers and seasonal ingredients with a focus on the locally caught seafood, served simply, allowing guests to experience the flavours of the South West, topped with a Mediterranean influence. For those wishing to dine out, we love The Watchhouse for its delicious seasonal produce and low-key ambience. We can also recommend The Victory Inn, serving great pub-classics and local beer and The Rising Sun, for proper pub grub, and a great patio, ideal for watching the world – and four-legs – go by.
£25 per dog per night
Tresanton is one of those hotels that welcome us four-legs with open arms, catering as much for us as our humans. I loved the ‘Dogs Bar’ where I could relax with fellow canines, also the large walled garden to our pawsome room. I discovered so many new sniffs on the many coastal walks, relaxed on the beach and was even visited an ancient castle – paws crossed we can head back soon.
