Dovedale cottage is set in the heart of the Cornish Countryside, just 5 miles from the coast and boasts a stunning 1/2 acre garden for children and pets to explore.  A large traditional country kitchen is the perfect setting for cosy family meals and is ideal for families that like to cook together.  The lounge offers a contemporary yet warm space to relax and enjoy the large wood burner as well as the smart TV which has a Netflix account for guests to use at their leisure. The owner has created a fantastic home from home, with high ceilings and luxury mattresses which you will struggle to live without when you leave and cute hand basins in some of the rooms to still keep the country cottage feel.  This rural retreat set in the small hamlet of Broad Langdon is an absolute gem.  It's still only 5 miles from the lovely Crackington Haven’s sandy beach and it's close enough for you to explore the great sights and coastline that Cornwall has to offer.  For anyone who thinks it looks familiar, Dovedale Cottage was featured in Escape To The Country in series 15 episode 71.

This property was stunning inside and out and maintained to a high standard. We would highly recommend to others and the owner Liz was welcoming but also mindful of our privacy. The whole area is secure for dogs (or children) to play safely and happily.

Mrs Jennifer B,

Beautiful cottage, great outside space!

Mr Richard C,

Beautiful cottage, spacious, comfortable, secure parking, quiet. Thoroughly recommended for a relaxing break

Mr Neil B,

A beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and comfortable cottage. Located away from the hustle and bustle, but near enough to dip in if you want to The near by Black Rock beach is ideal for walking the dog and allowing him off lead. Liz is the perfect host, making sure you have all you need, but also leaving you to your holiday. We would definitely go back!

Mr Andrew W,

This is a very dog friendly place. The field was superb for our very active dogs. The owner is great, not intrusive, but available if you need something. Very well placed accommodation for visiting different parts of the area.

Ms Jill S,
