The Lily Pad is perfectly placed and close to all the main routes for exploring the West Penwith and further afield in Cornwall. St Ives just to the north is an artists’ mecca with The Tate, Barbara Hepworth Museum and Leach Pottery, also a delightful number of galleries, shops and restaurants. Surfers flock to Porthmeor Beach and the white-gold sands of Porthminster and Carbis Bay invite relaxation.

Sennen Cove close to Land’s End lies to the west. Nearby Penzance is the largest town for shops and has a leisure centre and an outdoor seafront 1930’s Lido. St. Michael’s Mount and Marazion can be walked or cycled to along the South-West Coastpath in one direction while the fishing villages of Newlyn and Mousehole are in the other.

Various attractions include Geevor, Levant and Poldark tin mines, Paradise Park wildlife centre with indoor jungle-gym. Flambards theme park, Country Skittles and Go-karting. Cornwall also has renowned beautiful gardens to enjoy. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Eden Project, Glendurgan, Trebah and Tremenheere sculpture garden to name but a few.

Just 400m away from the properties is a mile-long stretch of dog-friendly beach (all year round) with acres of sand to run on when the tide is fully out! Outside there is a tap and hose where muddy/sandy paws can be washed off after an exciting day exploring. A towel is provided for a good dry off and rub down!

The garden is fenced with a lawn area, and a mess bin is provided for you to clear up into. We respectfully ask that all dogs are kept off the furniture and beds during their stay, and that they are never left unattended in the properties at any time. A list of dog-friendly beaches, pubs, vets etc. is available. Also suggestions for walks and days out with your best friend(s). Doggie day care businesses, dog sitters and kennels are available locally for the days/evenings when you might want to explore alone.
