Coastal Escapes

Our choice of Cornish coastal getaways.

Old Lanwarnick Cottages, Duloe

Old Lanwarnick offers you an award-winning, dog-friendly luxury holiday nestled in the tranquil Cornish countryside, just a short drive from the coast. The cottages let you escape the daily grind and enjoy a peaceful, relaxing getaway with all your loved ones – even the four-legged variety!

At Old Lanwarnick, the five-star luxury self-catered holiday cottages are a home away from home for humans and pets alike. Lovingly converted from the old farmhouse and stables that have stood on this site for hundreds of years, the cottages are full of history with stunning original features such as vaulted ceilings and flagstone floors. Old Lanwarnick cottages are made up of cosy stable conversions for two, right up to an historic 17th century farmhouse for eight; there’s somewhere for everyone. You can even book multiple cottages for larger groups or the whole site for up to 25 people.

Today, they provide families, couples and groups the chance to get away from the stresses of everyday life and enjoy some much-needed pampering while on holiday in Cornwall, with special touches from in-house spa treatments to a hot tub to relax in after a long day. On-site facilities include hot tubs, a gym, EV chargers, woodland walk, swings, woodland playground, ducks and chickens to feed, two enclosed dog fields and several areas to sit, relax and admire the views.
