Pawsome news, under new management, you can now stay at the St Enodoc Hotel with your four-legged friend in tow! This much-loved spot on the north Cornish coast is perfectly positioned in the sought after coastal town of Rock, nestled on the hillside, boasting sweeping views over the Camel Estuary. The boutique hotel is home to a large terrace, stunning gardens, and a coastal-chic style with a heated outdoor pool and a small spa.
With eight dog friendly rooms available, ranging from Double Superior to a Family Suite, your canine pal will feel welcomed with a bed, fluffy towel, feeding mat, bowl, treats and those essential poo bags too! It’s the perfect bolthole to explore the rugged coastline with your furry sidekick, wild-swimming in the protected estuary, and cycle along the Camel Trail – four-legged bike trailers available.
Both Rock beach and Daymer Bay are dog-friendly all year round, and the South West Coast Path is a stone’s throw away – Rock to Polzeath, via St Enodoc Church, provides a fantastic walk along the Camel Estuary, and St Enodoc golf course. We also enjoy taking the foot-ferry across to Padstow, and often joke that it should be renamed PAW-stow for its dog-friendly credentials.
Renowned Head Chef, Guy Owen heads up the kitchen, creating innovative dishes that evolve with the seasons with a focus on the abundance of fresh Cornish produce, including that grown in the hotel’s own ‘Made Well’ farm and kitchen garden.
Dogs are welcome to dine with their owners in light-filled Brasserie restaurant and for those wishing to dine out, there’s the superb Mariners pub, owned by Paul Ainsworth, just minutes’ walk down the hill. There’s also the St Kew Inn, a traditional village pub in the beautiful St Kew, or for the freshest local seafood, head to Prawn on The Lawn in Padstow.
There is an extra charge of £15 per night for your canine pal to stay too.
What a joy it was to join my humans at the St Enodoc, where I made friends with resident hotel cavapoo, Tilly! I loved sitting in the brasserie for dinner, taking in the delicious smells
from the kitchen, as well as relaxing on the terrace, breathing in the salt-fresh air. The beaches are very dog-friendly, allowing us four-legs to run free and play, and its fun to go on the ferry across the estuary to PAW-stow, where there are many welcoming boutiques, galleries and cafes. It definitely gets the paws up from me!
