Directions

When you reach Penzance stay on the A30 and follow the signs for Land's End. Approximately 3 miles outside Penzance take the left turn signposted to the Minack. Drive through St. Buryan and continue (watching out for the hairpin bend!) until you see a left turn signposted to Porthcurno. Drive down into the valley and past the village shop/post office. Just after this you will see 6 large semi detached houses on the lefthandside. "Surfers Paradise" is the last one - turn left into the driveway just before the white block of flats. The two parking spaces are just inside on the left by the front lawn of the house (not at the back in the main car park). The entrance to the property is the first door you come to on the left.

Dogs Welcome

In the last year I have had quite a few complaints from owners about the way properties have been left when dogs have been there.  So, to try and prevent any owners from changing their minds about accepting dogs, it would be helpful if you could have a look at the following suggestions:

  • Don’t allow your dogs to damage furniture and fittings – bring a throw if you know they will go on furniture or beds
  • Clean up any dog hair
  • Don’t leave dogs in the property alone if you know they are likely to scratch the paintwork or bark incessantly
  • Pick up after your pets in the garden
  • Bring a towel to wipe your pet if they get wet or muddy
  • Ensure that dogs arrive free of fleas and freshly groomed to ensure there are no lingering smells

Treeve Moor CottageTreeve Moor Cottage is detached and set in a large garden approximately 100 yards back from the road.  There is a gate across the entrance which will prevent larger dogs from getting out, but not smaller ones!  A footpath goes past the boundary of the property to Sennen Cove beach.  The property is surrounded by fields, one of which can be accessed to exercise your dog.  The property is suitable for a maximum of two dogs unless they are very small.  There are beaches within walking distance which are not subject to the dog ban.  Tide tables are available.

Dog friendly information for the area

All the properties on this site are situated either adjacent or just minutes away from a network of paths including the main coastal path.

Some beaches ban dogs from Easter to the end of September but allow dogs on the beach in the early morning and evening.  The rules in St. Ives are being changed to ban dogs all year round on most of their beaches.  Beaches nearby which do accept dogs all year round are Nanjizel, Pedn Vounder, Gwenver, Priests Cove, Boat Cove, Portheras Cove, Long Rock, and Porthkidney Sands .  See map for current arrangements.
