  • "The Salty Sea Dog, what a great find."

    We discovered Trebarwith by chance and have returned each year since then, This is by far and away the best cottage we have stayed in. The thought that has gone into this cottage is top notch. A very well equipped and good-spec kitchen with washing machined and dishwasher and no shortage of cookwear and utensils. The shower, which delivered good pressure was very welcome as water pressures in remote locations can be hit and miss. No such problems here! There is nothing to fault it. A great outside space, with the fencing being a good touch to prevent gatherings sitting on the low wall, gives you a good spot to view the sea and let any four legged holiday makers have a bit of a roam. Proximity to the beach, and a great pub are other major plus points. A reserved parking spot adds another positive to what can be a very busy area to get parked up in prime holiday weeks. The owners were friendly in any comms that took place and the welcome pack and information was enough to get you settled but not too much to make you think you were going to have to sit an exam like some cottages do! We were a couple with a small dog and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return.

  • "Simply Stunning & Beautiful Magical Apartment."

    Absolutely Amazing Place & Space. So well thought out and spacious & everything was just perfect. The kitchen is stylish and has everything you need to make cooking etc a breeze, The welcome Milk & Biscuits was a nice touch after a long drive. Having a full size table was nice to sit & have meals together. The beds were so comfortable with top quality Linen, Quilts & Pillows & WOW , the quilt & pillows were like sleeping on fluffy clouds," BEST SLEEP EVER!!" even the bunk bed which is of a good single size for an adult was extremely comfortable and cosy. The shower was hot & a good water pressure. Great to have a secure patio for my dog Smudge and myself to sit outside and watch the world go by listening to the stream right outside and birds singing , beautiful sunsets & beach right on your doorstep and your own private car parking space just seconds from the apartment, what's not to like "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING , EXCEPT HAVING TO LEAVE " We will defiantly be back.

  • "Trebarwith Strand will always be one of my favourite spots in Cornwall so being able to stay right on the Strand was magical and Salty Sea Dog did not disappoint."

    Firstly, the location of the cottage is outstanding. Being able to walk out of the gate and onto the beach with the dog was bliss. The accommodation itself has been done so beautifully. It was comfortable, cosy and clean with everything you could possible want or need. We loved it and will definitely be back. Thank you!

  • "What's not to love?"

    Trebarwith Strand is a stunning location and Salty Sea Dog is right at the fore. A wonderfully clean and fabulously appointed apartment with a secure front yard from where you can enjoy views of the sea and dramatic Gull Rock at sunset. There's a private parking bay within a few yards, and space to pull up outside to unload. The accommodation was cosy with a thoughful layout. Especially useful touches of a fan heater in the kitchen to give a lovely blast of heat when you first get back (well, we did choose to holiday in February!) and of course access to the coastal path, and the beach caves (at low tide). Do eat at the Port William - I was obsessed with the gravy! But when not eating out, you have everything you need at SSD. Everyone, whether local or visiting, is so firendly here. Very highly recommended.

    The bed and pillows were amazing, good quality bed linen. It would be helpful to have some information on what to do with the rubbish. We would definitely return.

We are glad you had a lovely stay at Salty Sea Dog and liked our beddings and pillows, we specially selected these good quality linens for our guests, and thank you very much for looking after them so well during your stay. We have added our rubbish disposal information to our guest letters, we appreciate that you have brought this important detail to our attention. We would love to host you again at Salty Sea Dog.

    The milk, bread, butter and cake were a nice touch. It was a perfect location for getting out and about, pretty central. Great for dog walks, surfing, or just a place to get wawy from it all. The pub was great, really friendly and welcoming of the dogs. We would definitely return and will be recommending to friends and family.

    The house interior is beautiful and very comfortable for our family of 4 and dog. The location is amazing, just a stones throw from the amazing beach and a 2 minute walk to the pub. My favourite part was sitting on the front terrace with a glass of wine watching the sun set over the sea, bliss!

  • "The SSD is in a perfect location, right next to the sea."

    It is so amazing to get up in the morning, pour yourself a coffee and go outside and sit in the front enclosed terrace and watch the waves crash down on the rocks. The apartment itself was very quaint and the perfect place to relax with full amenities and a very nice pub and restaurant set behind the house on the hill side which meant if you didn't want to leave Trebarwith you don't need to. All in all a perfect base for exploring the endless beauty of Cornwall. Thanks Paul

  • "We had a fantastic week in Trebarwith and Salty Sea Dog was a perfect base."

    Very clean and had excellent facilities, including great kitchen appliances and utensils. Fantastic to have such a good smart TV in place too, with easy access to all streaming platforms. Second bedroom is very small and there seemed to be minimal running hot water, but these were minor quibbles and didn’t get in the way of us having a fabulous break!

    Thanks for your valuable feedback. We are glad to hear that you and the family had a great time at Salty Sea Dog. There is a temperature adjustment button underneath the sink, where you can put the temperature higher, however, we have called our plumber in to check it through to make sure it serves better for future customers.

    Can I suggest some decent sized wine glasses would be a plus, plus the hot water is a little fickle!! Otherwise amazing

    Thanks for your lovely feedback, dear guests. We are sorry to hear about the hot water, there is a temperature adjustment button underneath the sink, where you can put the temperature higher, however, we have called our plumber in to check it through to make sure it works well.

    It is beautifully decorated, well equipped and extremely comfortable. It felt like home as soon as we stepped through the door. Our two dogs completely relaxed straight away and were so happy sitting in the doorway and watching the world go by as it is fully enclosed and perfect for dogs. The location is perfect, a few metres from the beach and with the added bonus of a pub and cafe on your doorstep and fabulous walks close by, you couldn’t ask for more

  • "A lovely cottage apartment in an EXCELLENT location!"

    Really comfortable and well equipped. However needs a broom and a mop and bucket, the latter needed for the bathroom floor where moisture levels remained high following a shower. This is even though the extractor fan was on throughout the shower. Though left dry, the bathroom floor would have small puddles later. Lovely otherwise and we enjoyed our stay so much that we didn't want to go home!

    Thank you for your feedback we are glad to hear you had a lovely stay and will look into the points you have raised. Property Owner

    The location is absolutely magical (so close to the beach at Trebarwith Strand). The cottage is well-insulated so is warm and quiet; it is beautifully presented and has really good facilities. We had a very relaxing, lovely break there. I would also highlight that whilst Sykes Holiday Cottages informed me beforehand that there was no bedding available at the property, this proved to be incorrect - all bedding was provided. A wonderful stay and I definitely hope to return.

The property

Tintagel 1.9 miles.

This delightfully presented ground-floor apartment, Salty Sea Dog, rests just paces away from the beach, in a beautiful, converted period property.

Simply ideal for a family of four looking for a beach-based holiday in a stunning region of Cornwall.

Light and airy with a lovely contemporary coastal feel which flows seamlessly throughout, large sash windows overlook the Strand, so there is no forgetting that you are merely a stone’s throw from the beach.

Relax around the lovely rustic dining table and tuck into the delicious cream tea awaiting you.

Wood floors and feature wall panels bring stylish warmth to the inviting living room.

While you are waiting for the tide to go out, relax on the sofa with a good book, or gather round the table for games.

Silver grey glossy kitchen units create a wonderfully bright space, where rustling up delicious meals for your family will be a pleasure.

The double bedroom has been thoughtfully designed so you can relax in style, with restful nautical blue and white hues.

The bunk room is a quirky, quiet space where the kids will love to hide away.

Wake up to a refreshing shower in the blue and white glossy shower room each morning, before stretching your legs along the coast path and topping up your lungs with fresh salty air.

Complimentary toiletries are provided, along with a hair dryer.

Spend sunny days lunching on the patio; the large enclosed outdoor space is perfect for soaking up the coastal atmosphere with a chilled drink and exceptional view of the ocean and Gull Rock.

Stroll up the cliff path to the Port William bar and restaurant, for supper with an amazing view.

Trebarwith's sandy beach is just moments away and is perfect for exploring the rock pools and caves.

Or perhaps catch a lesson with the local surf school, and then go catch some waves.

The coastal path winds its way into Tintagel.

You will be rewarded with dramatic sea views on the way, and the fantastic King Arthur's castle on the headland.

Wander further into the village for refreshment and a visit to the National Trust's historic Old Post Office.

A short drive away is the charming village of Boscastle with its characterful harbour, cafes and pottery.

Or visit pretty Port Isaac and marvel at the picturesque harbour, and maybe catch a glimpse of 'Doc Martin' in action!

Venture inland and explore beautiful, wild Bodmin Moor with its tors, lakes and ponies.

Salty Sea Dog is a charm-filled getaway in the heart of Cornwall!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Camelford 5.9 miles; Wadebridge 13 miles.

Tintagel, home of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, whose ruins dominate the cliffside just outside the village, is a popular but not overcrowded tourist destination. The surrounding area is dominated by the sea, rocky coves and stunning scenery. Several beaches, including nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove, are within easy reach and surfing is the main attraction for those who love the water. Tintagel has several pubs and restaurants and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must. For the energetic, the South West Coast Path passes through the village and in both directions it winds its way along the cliffs and down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head north along the path and within a short distance is the beautiful village of Boscastle with its quaint quay and village pubs for refreshment. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Newquay and Bude, with their resort attractions, while the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, the Eden Project, Padstow, Camel Estuary and Port Isaac are all within a short but scenic drive.
