Dog Friendly

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages in Cornwall


Nestled in 36 acres of wildflower meadows and woods, The Woodland Collection cottages offer superb facilities for guests and their four-legged friends!

We are situated between the pretty coastal town of Marazion (with its dog friendly pubs, cafes and boutiques overlooking the beach, which is just 10 mins away) and Hayle, with 3 miles of golden sandy beaches and dunes,  which is just 10 minutes drive in the other direction.  We are in the narrowest part of the UK, so each coastline is close by!

We pride ourselves on providing really dog friendly rather than dog tolerant cottages, and we strive to go that extra mile to make dogs and their owners welcome so they can relax the moment they arrive.

Dog Friendly

Up to 4 dogs per cottage. Enclosed garden, two exercise fields, warm outdoor shower & woodland walks


Our facility is designed to be as inclusive as possible so that it’s a haven for dogs and their owners, providing a stress-free environment from the moment they arrive.

After a long drive, dogs often need to stretch their legs, and we offer ample land right on the doorstep for that purpose.

The Bark Park has transformed canine playtime into an exclusive, tail-wagging haven! For those with concerns about reactive pups,  we’ve created an experience that goes beyond the ordinary. You can now reserve your own slice of doggy heaven online for 30 or 60 minutes for a small fee. This well maintained space boasts play and agility equipment, with over an acre of grass for Zoomies too, turning every visit into a fun time.

Our netted narrow gauge deer fencing stands at 2 meters on the two open sides and 1.5 meters on the other sides which have hedges behind them, and boarded gates to create an enclosed play environment.

Book The Doggie Play Paddock

But that’s not all – we’ve got a second fenced paddock exclusively for our cottage guests which is completely free of charge and can be used at any time without booking. It’s a hub for family fun where activities like Zoomies and Ball throwing, Footie and Rounders matches take centre stage. It’s not just an enclosed paddock; it’s a canvas for memories waiting to be painted with your children and furry friends.
Venture beyond the paddocks, and you enter a wonderland. Over 30 acres of wildflower meadows, with cut paths that wind through varied terrains – it’s an explorer’s dream. And here’s the kicker – no farm animals in sight, so your family can enjoy being at one with Nature.

Don’t forget to ask Helen to take you on a guided Nature tour to explore the woods and watch out for the fairies and pixies hiding down there too!  Ponds and a stream in the woods are ready for splashing and discovery. Look out for the wild trout and minnows in the ponds, and the stunning dragonflies and demoiselles.

To prioritise safety, we ask that dogs be kept on a lead in the car park areas and around the cafe.  This precaution ensures a pleasant environment for all our guests. Overall, our goal is to offer a diverse and enjoyable experience, catering to the unique preferences of each dog and their owner.

We DO take EXEMPTED dogs as long as they are registered as exempt, they wear a muzzle on site at ALL times when outdoors, the owners have their own liability insurance and the dogs are under THEIR close supervision.  They may be left off the lead in the two dog parks on site but must remain on the lead in the car park and bistro area, as with all dogs staying here.


Each cottage has a landscaped enclosed garden with just under 5 feet solid fences on three sides and close knit rails on the car park side so guests can still see the views, but dogs are contained.

Each garden has a warm outdoor shower so dogs can be washed off after their adventures in comfort. We provide a doggie box with treats, balls, spare poo bags, extra bowls, doggie shampoo, and towels so guests can really pamper their pets while they are here.
If they normally rest in a crate, we have various sizes that guests can borrow so they don’t have to bring their own. We have doggie rugs, too, for extra comfort if needed.
Dogs are allowed on our sofas as they are leather and easy to clean. The floors downstairs are wood affect vinyl and easy to clean too.

Dogs are allowed upstairs if the owners are happy to bring their own bedding. Please speak to Helen to arrange this – We also offer a dog sitting service by prior arrangement too.

DOGS ARE NOT TO BE LEFT UNATTENDED IN THE COTTAGES UNLESS CRATED.  Please speak to Helen about this as crates can be booked and borrowed free of charge.

The Bistro next door is also dog friendly and has plenty of outdoor seating so guests can enjoy the views.


Close by (almost next door!) we also have the National Trust’s Godolphin Estate which has lovely free woodland walks, and Godolphin Hill where you can see both the North and South Coast from the top on a clear day.

Cornwall Council has recently loosened restrictions for dogs on beaches.

Near us, Porthkidney Beach, Long Rock Beach and The Towans Beach at Hayle are dog friendly all year round and not subject to any restrictions.

Most pubs and cafes are dog friendly in our area too, but it’s worth checking if you are planning to book.  The nearest good food pubs are The Falmouth Packet (Gastro pub – book in advance) at Rosudgeon, just 2.5 miles from here, The Godolphin Inn at Marazion (4 miles), The Victoria Inn at Perranuthnoe (4 miles). Nearest Micro Brewery and Real Ale pub is The Star Inn at Crowlas (6 miles).


For raw dog food, natural dog treats and dog sitting, contact Doggie Day Care in St Erth, who are just 10 minutes’ drive away.
