Dogs Love Cornwall Living2018/19 Autumn/Winter
Get some good karma
Discover the crystal clear waters and white sand of the Isles of Scilly from the luxurious Karma St Martin’s hotel.
From the moment your furry companion arrives at Karma St Martin’s hotel, they will be welcomed with a treat, bowls, blankets and even a canine-friendly menu. The pet-loving Karma team also provides dog-sitting services, so you’re free to enjoy a spa treatment or make friends with the local seal colony on a snorkelling trip. As a result of being such an accommodating hotel for canines, it’s not surprising that Karma has recently won a bronze award for ‘Best Dog-Friendly Business’ at the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2016 and 2017 and will be aiming for at least silver this year!

Unlike the main beaches on St Mary’s, the beaches on St Martin’s are dog friendly all year round and the hotel provides complimentary towels for mucky pups to freshen up after a long day outdoors. During the annual Taste of Scilly Festival (which takes place over the whole of September) the hotel hosts sizzling seafood barbeques, with panoramic views of neighbouring islands from their double AA rosette restaurant. Plus, if you holiday from September until October, your pooch is treated to a complimentary stay!
Autumn is the perfect time to ignite your wanderlust; all the kids have gone back to school so you’re free to explore Scilly’s ever-changing landscape in peace and there are also some brilliant events taking place. Join in for a weekend of jazz from 12th October until 14th. Then there’s the ‘Walk Scilly’ event, taking place over the same weekend from 11th until 15th October with a packed programme of walks inspired by the spectacular scenery and wildlife seen on the islands, giving you an amazing opportunity to book a room with your pooch at the hotel, walk around the breathtaking islands by day and listen to the mesmerising sound of jazz by night.
Quote ‘CORNWALL LIVING’ when booking your October holiday to receive a complimentary cream tea at the hotel. And, to enjoy a 10% discount on all travel for the Walk Scilly Weekend, just call 01736 334220 and quote ‘WLK18’.
