Can i bring a dog?

At The Idle Rocks we have two ground floor bedrooms in our adjoining cottage, Carricknath, where a small well behaved dog is most welcome to stay with its owner.  For your arrival, we’ll prepare your room with a dog bed and towel, a welcome Bonio, bowl for water and maps of local walks with information on dog friendly beaches. We make a one off charge of £30 for the full duration of your stay.

Unfortunately we do not allow dogs in the main hotel. However when you dine with us in our restaurant, your dog can be left in the small courtyard outside your room, where we have CCTV and our staff will keep an eye on him for you or alternatively you can dine at our sister property, The St Mawes Hotel, where your dog is most welcome on the Lower Deck bar and restaurant.
