Look what is on the doorstep of Boots Cottage – stunning scenery and fantastic wildlife – courtesy of the South West Coast Path.
Setting off on foot across the pretty way-marked fields, you will soon be welcomed by far reaching coastal views. A further half hour over rich red-earthen fields you’ll be ready to toe-dip the water and your dog can frolic in the surfy waves.
Stroll a little further along the bay and enjoy the silho uetted delights of Black Rock. To return to base simply take the Segway path through the leafy woodlands of the Whalesborough farm estate, ready to light the fire and relax for the evening.
Venturing a little further afield – a short car ride away (or a longer walk!) Millook Haven will delight your senses. Take the circular walk up through the woodland and meadows to a spectacular view from Dizzard Point. Walk back along the coast path catching up with fellow walkers and their furry friends as you go. Lundy Island and (if you are lucky) seal spotting, is great fun along the way . A well-earned cake and cuppa just a little way on at Crackington Haven is a great post-walk treat.
So why not pack your walking boots and outdoor clobber and join us at Boots Cottage – a dog-friendly cosy retreat for 2/3 outdoor-lovers. Situated a 40 min level walk along the canal from Bude (with Helebridge basin just a stone’s throw away), and with such easy access to the rugged coast, what more could you want from a cottage – apart from a warm welcome and Cornish cream tea on arrival, that is.
A 3 night break (with an autumn discount of 10%) comes in at £189 and your dog comes too for £13.50!
We met Jan and Ed (pictured), on the coastal path yesterday. They were on holiday from Toronto. They began their walk by catching the bus from London to Westward Ho! and were making their way along the path to Padstow, staying locally as they go. They were having a great time and said they were amazed by the beauty of the rugged coastline…
