Set in 25 acres of mature gardens with glorious fields and woods for the kids to run around in, the five-star property is dog friendly too, making it perfect for a family getaway. There’s also plenty of wildlife on site including: owls, buzzards, badgers, kestrels and rabbits galore!

No chintz here, just crisp bed linen, goosedown duvets, hardwood flooring, comfortable leather sofas and peace & quiet. Kernock is extremely baby friendly with a wide range of baby equipment like cots, monitors, sterilisers, highchairs, stair gates and plastic plates and bowls provided free of charge.

Dogs are welcome too with dog towels, blankets, treats, water bowl, poo bags plus a dog toy provided and there’s an outside dog poo bin for each cottage. Crates are available for use when the owners are out without their dog. There are several fenced paddocks for secure exercise for dogs that may run off plus doggy daycare and onsite grooming are also available.

For guests who would rather not cook, the 12th century Weary Friar in the village of Pillaton is around a 15 minute stroll from the cottages – torches are provided if coming back at night. The Weary offers a full menu and a good selection of guest ales for beer lovers. It is also child friendly. Booking is recommended.

Kernock boasts two sleeps-four properties, a house that sleeps six and one that sleeps two.

Lovers of gardens and houses can explore the nearby Cotehele, Antony and Mount Edgcumbe and there are also plenty of beaches within easy reach including the golden Whitsand and the fabulous rock pooling beaches of Seaton and Downderry (buckets and spades are provided).
