Step back in time, winter in Cornwall makes room for the old mythical Cornwall, as mist clings to the moors and rolls in from the sea. Few people can be seen, which emphasises the connection with the landscape. Beaches surround us as well as the coastal paths, so taking your dogs for walks is a must. Also in winter dogs are very welcome to run for miles on our shorelines as the tourist don’t venture to this part of the land as much.
There’s something incomparably cosy about winter. The heart pounding thrill of exposure to the elements as white horses ride in and batter across rocks makes us feel so awestruck by nature and the light that surrounds us. Sipping a hot chocolate or even a bottle of fizz helps us feel protected from the elements. This is something winter in Cornwall guarantees: being up close with nature, and yet being sheltered from the storm.
Remember in 4 Weddings when Andie Macdowell says the immortal line, “is it raining? I hadn’t noticed”? Well, the joy of elopement dog friendly weddings lies in the same sentiment. Some couples come to Lower Barns just so they can huddle up together and barely see a soul. We can arrange delivery of breakfast to your suite, so you needn’t socialise, and you can scurry around like a pair of big kids to claim solitude.
A short drive from us. Parking at Gorran Haven car park, or Lameldra, this beach was listed as one of the ten best beaches on a worldwide list from the Guardian. Amongst the stunning scenery conjured by Thai islands and Brazilian coves, our luxury boutique accommodation in Cornwall gets a mention. Vault beach has that wonderful combination of being windswept and secret, and a little trickier to access. The South West Coast Path can be tricky to negotiate, but it’s worth it for a quiet little slice of paradise. Great spot for winter, beach, cliff-top wedding photos to show everyone on your return.

Just come back after my wedding yesterday. It is the most amazing place ever. When planning the wedding Janie and Mike helped us plan the wedding we dreamed of. They love their role and it shows. The B and B oozes the love that they have put into each brick creating this haven. The food is tasty, well cooked and plenty of it. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The service was simple and the best bit was our two dogs were able to attend as well. Highly recommend.More
