Reconnect with nature, your dog kicking at your heels, at The Fir Hill Estate – an off-grid glamping retreat in the heart of a historic family estate in north Cornwall. Nestled amongst beautiful woodlands on the edge of the Porth Reservoir, five-miles from Newquay with 62-acres of private land to explore; ten spacious yurts provide an utterly relaxing escape from modern life, with guests able to benefit from a luxury glamping experience which combines sustainability, abundant wilderness and the preservation of one of Cornwall’s oldest family estates.
Five of the yurts welcome dogs, meaning your canine pal can also enjoy a little adventure. Four are large enough for families, sleeping six, with one smaller yurt, suited to couples, sleeping three, with a maximum of two dogs per yurt. There are plans to build two more small dog friendly yurts in 2021.
Dogs should be kept on a leash within the glamping site, but there are 62-acres of beautiful wooded-estate to enjoy, where your hound is able to roam free, accessible to guests on foot. For salty sea dogs there are also plenty of dog friendly beaches including Watergate Bay, Fistral Beach, Crantock and Polly Joke. All situated just a short drive from Fir Hill. We particularly love the expansive sands of Watergate Bay, offering a three-mile stretch for your dog to run and play.
We love the Beach Hut at Watergate Bay, located right on the beach serving burgers, fries, mussels and Asian-inspired dishes such as fish curry. Other favourite spots to eat include the Boathouse Food Hub at Newquay Harbour, serving simple seafood classics with a twist and the Jam Jar Kitchen at Crantock, serving delicious toasties, and wood-fired pizzas as well as a range of tempting sweet treats. If its a dreamy picnic destination you have in mind, we can’t recommend Dine With Iris enough, a bespoke, luxury and personalized picnic experience allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors, with the addition of a picnic package that is all taken care of – dogs welcome too!
There’s also a host of dog friendly pubs in the area including Two Clomes at Quintrell Downs, Smugglers Den at Cubert and Falcon at St Mawgan.
Yipee there’s no additional fee for your dog.
Wow Fir Hill was such a treat, staying in a yurt was a whole new experience – so super cosy and lots of fun, I loved being in a rural setting with so much woodland to explore, and so many great sniffs!
My humans even cooked around an outdoor fire, I could definitely get used to outdoor living! With so many brilliant dog friendly beaches nearby too, Fir Hill really is a pawfect spot for dogs!
