Hunker down with your four legged friend in the homely warmth of a traditional Cornish Inn, dating back to the 14th century; the Halzephron at Gunwalloe celebrates the heritage of an era bygone in charming, characterful surrounds with hearty food, an open fire and stunning views, amidst wild coastal landscape at Cornwall’s most southerly point.
The inviting Inn recently received the title of ‘Most Dog Friendly Pub’, at the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2019, winning gold in hound-hospitality! With two double rooms, both of which are dog friendly, home to delicious handmade treats, comfy beds, blankets and feeding bowls, as well as towels for post-muddy-walkies, found in the bar, dogs are made to feel as welcome as their human companions.
Situated just a 15-minute drive from the busy market town of Helston, The Halzephron is ideally positioned to explore The Lizard Peninsula, renowned for its rugged landscape and exceptional wildlife.
Immerse yourself in the peace and tranquility of un-spoilt natural beauty, while being minutes away from the bustling surrounding areas. Discover hidden coves and quaint cottages within the village of Gunwalloe, take a short drive to Church Cove and the fascinating St Wynwallow’s church or walk the rugged cliff path to Lizard Point, the most southerly point of the British mainland, just half a mile south of Lizard village, 11-miles Southeast of Helston.
The Halzephron benefits from having the stunning South West Coastal Path right on our doorstep, with dog friendly beaches only a short walk away; we particularly love west-facing, Fishing Cove, a five-minute walk from the pub, located at the end of Porthleven Beach, it is a sand and shingle beach separated from its neighbour, Church Cove Beach, by the Pedngwinian Headland. For dogs who love swimming, there is Dollar Cove, a little further down the road – for a refreshment stop, walk south along the Coastal Path to the Poldu beach café, open 364 days-a-year. Both beaches are dog friendly all year round, but if lunching at Poldu, it’s worth noting that the beach has a seasonal ban.
Dine in the bar area, with your furry friend at your side or during warmer months, at one of the outdoor tables, with dramatic views across miles of countryside and coast.
No charge for dogs!
The Halzephron wins paws down; such a great location to explore both countryside and dog friendly beaches with a roaring post-walkies open-fire to sit by on return from a days exploring. My room was so cosy, with plenty of treats and a comfy bed and with the smell of bacon wafting up the staircase at breakfast time, my tail went into overdrive for this award-winning pub, that welcomes us four-legs with open arms.
