Very dog-friendly surprisingly roomy cottage, the bed was comfortable, the dogs were very relaxed. Plenty of space and spotlessly clean. Great location for coastal path and delighted to find it had Wifi.

Thank you!

November 2018

A cosy, comfortable cottage for two in an excellent location near to the coast path.

October 2018

Lovely little cottage, owners have tried to think of everything if you bring dogs. Dog bath very useful indeed, as was the enclosed garden. Plenty of good walks and handy pub close by. Homemade cakes on arrival very welcome. Would stay again.

July 2018

The ideal holiday cottage for a couple with dog (s) who enjoy countryside & walking.

June 2018

Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. Quiet location. Near to coastal path and spectacular scenery. Doggy bath in porch very handy.

May 2018

We had a wonderful stay at Little Gurnards and if anything the property was better than in the pictures. The scones on arrival were a nice touch and we found the property to be very spacious for two people and a Lurcher.

April 2018

I loved the location - so peaceful and so dog-friendly, Dawn has thought of everything from the dog shower, heated towel rail and bowl of water on arrival. There is a lovely 20 minute walk on the doorstep for morning and evening dog walks as well as fantastic coastal walks from the door. The little conservatory at the back of the house was a peaceful place to sit in the mornings or in the evenings after a long day exploring. It was a real escape for me and my curious spaniel.

March 2018

Had a really relaxing time. Cottage had everything you could need. Weather was rather wet, wild and windy but the cottage was warm and cosy. Floss our dog enjoyed her first holiday away with us, plenty of long walks the cottage being ideal for a dog. We would thoroughly recommend it.

March 2018

Wonderful cottage, very cosy and comfortable. The dog shower in the front porch is inspired! No more having to worry about a muddy or sandy pooch! The owner Dawn is lovely, highly recommended cottage.

February 2018

This is a gorgeous little cottage in a superb location, right on the South West coastpath. A real benefit is that although it is in a quiet spot, there is a good pub/restaurant on the doorstep. The cottage had a cosy feel and was great for a winter break, but would be good at any time of year. The enclosed garden made it perfect for our pooch and the dog shower with hot and cold feed was a definite bonus. We would definitely recommend Little Gurnards and would love to stay again.

December 2017

The cottage was really well equipped and despite the weather we had was always warm and a pleasure to return to after a wet and windy day out. We would recommend this cottage to anyone for any time if the year.

November 2017

Lovely cosy cottage, so very welcoming of dogs and in a perfect location. We would very happily go back!

November 2017

Indoor dog shower with hot and cold water AND heated towel rail, this was luxury for man and his best friend. With the lovely enclosed garden and conservatory these three features set 'Little Gurnards' apart from ALL other cottages for us. Comfortable bed, which is always a relief as with the well equipped Kitchen. Let's not forget Dawns cream tea and a carton of milk on our arrival, that's a lovely touch and much appreciated.

October 2017

Perfect holiday cottage for us and the dog!

August 2017

An easy transaction, a lovely cottage and a very tired dog after all the walks!

May 2017

Idilic location. Cottage in perfect condition throughout. Fantastic sea view. 2 local pubs could not be any better.

April 2017

We had a lovely holiday at Little Gurnards, with our two dogs (the owner very graciously allowed us to bring our 5 month old pup). The weather was fabulous, so we had no opportunity to try out the doggy shower, but the idea itself is ingenious. The cottage was perfect, with more than enough room for us and the dogs. The little sun room was a definite bonus. The location is perfect for coastal walking, which was the point of our holiday; and the owner had left us a scrumptious cream tea which went down a treat! What more could you ask for.

April 2017

This is just a wonderful property. If you want to be away from ths hussle and bussle of the "tourist" areas, this is the perfect place. The photos dont do it justice. Very warm and cosy with everything you could possibly need. And its right next to some fabulous walks and beaches are close by. Cant wait to come back.

December 2016

This cottage is a real gem, in a lovely location and fitted with all the mod-cons. We really enjoyed being so close to the coast path and Gurnard's Head was definitely worth a walk all the way out to the point. We only had one day of rain and even then it was lovely to sit inside with the fire and comfortable sofas. We would definitely return, and would recommend to anyone. Monty the Collie loved his stay too!

September 2016

A well positioned, well presented and equipped snug cottage. Really dog friendly. We loved the sunny conservatory and the view of the sea and Gurnards Head from the shower! Would love to return.

August 2016

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location owned by a very lovely lady who can't do enough for you! Welcomed with a cream tea and sunshine! Thank you!

July 2016

A delightful cottage in a wonderful location. Great views and walks and perfect for the dog. We were made very welcome and a lovely cream tea had been kindly prepared for us. The Gurnards Head pub is just 100 yards or so away and serves fine food with a super choice of wines and ales. We will definitely choose to stay there again.

May 2016

The cottage is very cosy and comfortable. It is a perfect place to stay with dogs and is very handy for the coastal path. There are lovely walks on the doorstep. It is an ideal base foe exploring this area of Cornwall.

May 2016

Had a brilliant week, very comfortable and ideal for dogs. Pub next door is a bonus with great beer and food. Only 500 yards from the sea and incredible views. We will be returning.

April 2016

Lovely welcome from Dawn, the owner - and home made cakes on arrival! The cottage enjoys a lovely position with easy access to walks, beaches and local attractions. All information is accurate and we found it just as expected. We had a lovely weekend and will definitely return.

February 2016

We had a fantastic short break. The cottage was like a home from home. Very clean and well equipped. Perfectly located for walking and very doggy friendly. It is always hard for us to find a place that let's 2 big dogs stay but they were welcomed with open arms here.

December 2015

This was an absolutely lovely cottage to stay in. We were there over Christmas and New Years with our 2 dogs and it was a true little getaway with the South West Coast Path on your doorstep and an excellent pub a 2 minute stroll from the house. You are not very far from St Ives and all the other far west Cornwall towns. After a muddy walk there is a dog shower in the porch which worked a treat for us and I want one of these in our own house. We met the owner a couple times and she is very friendly and helped us to get the heating nice and warm for me. The open fire was a nice treat to end a cold winter day with and there were 2 very comfy sofas to lounge around on. The garden was a perfect size to let the dogs out in the morning and evening before their walks and fully secure.

November 2015

well equipped little cottage, super for dogs and walking with stunning views right on the doorstep.

October 2015

A lovely, cosy cottage with all the amenities you could need.

September 2015

Best holiday in the UK - ever ! It is rare to find everything to your liking in a cottage you have booked , but Little Gurnards ticked every box.

July 2015

Fantastic location - very comfortable and well equipped cottage and exceptionally dog-friendly. We felt 'at home' straight away and wished we could have stayed longer.
