Hidden from the hustle-and-bustle, dog friendly, St Petroc’s Hotel and Bistro is a unique coastal retreat – designed for foodies – with as much intricacy in the original-styled bedrooms, as the fresh, seasonal dishes served up.
Dogs are welcome in most of the rooms, where they will receive a Chalky’s Pals fleecy dog blanket, Olive the Octopus dog toy, a Mason Cash water bowl and organic dog treats, along with a dog guide to dog friendly walks, beaches and restaurants in the area and if that’s not enough to get your dog’s tail wagging, the sausage at breakfast, most certainly will!
St Petroc’s – the fifth oldest building in the town – is set on a quiet hillside, away from the holidaying hordes, minutes walk from the hub of the harbour with it’s authentic pubs, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and galleries; ideally positioned for discovering Padstow, home to sweeping sands, the Camel Estuary and the Cornish Coastal Path, the town sits on the west bank of the River Camel – five-miles north of Wadebridge and ten-miles north of Bodmin – providing miles of coastal walks for you and your canine pal to enjoy.
For exhilarating views across to Rock and Daymer Bay, trek up to the war memorial or cycle the six-mile trail along the Camel Estuary, with your four-legged friend, along for the ride in a trailer.
There are also plenty of circular walks from Padstow, either via Crugmeer, Trevone and Stepper Point (seven miles) or for a shorter option, via Hawker’s Cove (four miles). Another popular route, taking in some wonderful coastal scenery along the way is Padstow to Polzeath, via Rock and St Enodoc Church (around three and a half miles).
Although dogs are not permitted in the bistro, you can enjoy cocktails at Ruby’s Bar with your canine pal at your side, before feasting alfresco in the pretty courtyard garden or the cosy dog friendly bar dining rooms.
Alternatively pop to Stein’s Café courtyard, or settle into the conservatory area or the rooftop terrace of the Seafood Restaurant. The Cornish Arms at St Merryn also provides a lovely dog friendly spot to dine over a classic British pub menu, just ten-minutes drive away.
Rooms from £165 per night.
There is a £30 charge for the first night, and £5 for any additional nights. Two dogs will be £50 for first night and £10 for additional nights. Three dogs are £65 for first night and £15 for each additional night
St Petroc’s offers a memorable stay where I was able to sink into luxury, happy to join my pack in the cocktail bar, as well as the cosy dog friendly dining rooms.
I received plenty of fuss, and couldn’t wait to wake my humans early, for walkies along the estuary, followed by a gourmet breakfast sausage. I’ve got my paws firmly on a future booking!
