    !! Fantastic pub and little convenience store a mile or so up the rd. everyone in the pub very welcoming and friendly. The cottage is dog friendly although you cannot let them straight out into the garden from the house. You need to walk them in on a lead ( mine is a pup so older dogs may be fine) Also be aware there are sheep in the field next door which is so lovely but there is only a wire fence between us which Hazel (my pup) could get under so had to be on a lead in the garden. Shower is a Little temperamental!!! All this said, we had a beautiful week, we had amazing weather for February. Beautiful widemouth beach is dog friendly with a lovely cafe. Port Isaac and Boscastle are a must to visit. All in all a lovely place. Perfect cottage.

About the location


Launceston 4 miles.

St Giles-on-the-Heath is a thriving rural village in west Devon, near the boundary with Cornwall.

It is an ideal destination for those wanting to explore both counties, to unwind in beautiful unspoilt countryside and to explore the many hidden treasures along the Tamar Valley, steeped in 17th century Cornish mining history.

St Giles-on-the-Heath has a picturesque thatched village pub, village shop and access to many countryside walks.

In all directions there is outstanding natural beauty; to the north, the rugged North Cornish coast famed for popular family surfing beaches, to the west, the open spaces of Bodmin Moor ideal for walking and riding, and to the east is Dartmoor National Park for letterboxing and geo-caching enthusiasts.

The market town of Launceston is nearby, with its imposing castle, steam railway and narrow streets lined with local shops, and popular day outings include Boscastle, Tintagel, Newquay, Port Isaac, Padstow, The Eden Project and a bit further afield Looe and Polperro. .
