a short walk to Treyarnon Bay – dog & child friendly

Welcome to Hillside Cottage & the beauty of North Cornwall

Sleeping eight people in four large bedrooms, this restful family cottage in Treyarnon Bay, near Padstow in Cornwall is within easy walking distance of the beach, the cliffs and the pub. The beds are very comfortable, the wifi is strong and the hot tub is…hot. Dogs and children are very welcome. 

The cottage looks across quiet meadows to the sea beyond. On clear days, it’s all dewy dawns, birdsong and spectacular sunsets. In more dramatic moments, enjoy coastal storms from the hot tub or settle down to a board game in the softly lit living room. At Hillside, there is no such thing as bad weather. 

Surrounding area

Treyarnon Bay is a 15-minute walk away (or a short drive) and it is the perfect beach, in our opinion: great waves and warm sand/rock pools for the little ones, including a large natural swimming pool hidden amongst the rocks. The beach is flanked by independent coffee and ice-cream shacks with the local YHA serving drinks, uncomplicated food and sea views. Constantine Bay is just around the headland and offers unrivalled surfing. 

Holiday interests

If you’re looking for a special spa experience head to Bedruthen Hotel – it is breathtaking. Alternatively, Trevose Golf Club will provide a beautiful clifftop day on the greens.

For foodies, or those keen to try their hand at crabbing in the harbour, Padstow is 10 minutes away by car. Slightly further afield is Wadebridge and Mawgan Porth which are small towns full of pubs and independent shops.

There are numerous rainy-day activities for kids in the surrounding areas and the house is full of pamphlets and information. 

Walkers are, of course, spoilt for choice. 


For food, treats, and an unexpected gifts and homeware corner take a look at Constantine Bay Stores which is walkable from the house. Tesco Extra is 10 minutes by car, or you could get a delivery.

Hillside is a family cottage and a wonderful holiday retreat all in one.


Hillside Cottage

Hillside is a great house with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. The beds and linen are spot on and the sitting room furniture really comfortable. It was a lovely touch to be greeted with a delicious Victoria sponge cake (the sponge was so yellow it must have been made with free reange eggs!) It was also rather nice to have coffee pods provided. The walk down the lane to the sea is only ten minutes so just right for little legs. There are numerous games available – which was great as it got the grandsons’ off their devices which was a blessing. We would thoroughly recommend Hillside for a peaceful holiday – especially for dog owners as Treyarnon Bay is a dog frienly beach. Thank you Katie for your professionalism and attention to detail.
