Dog Friendly Stays at Sail Lofts, St. Ives
Last month I was lucky enough to spend a little time away from North Cornwall with some of the Natural Cornish Pet family, just a stone's throw from our headquarters in Hayle, Cornwall. Our weekend away was spent in the stupendous town of St. Ives where we stayed just a hop, skip and jump from the beautiful Porthmeor beach in one of the incomparable Sail Lofts holiday apartments.
Sail Lofts Holidays is a series of luxurious self-catering holiday accommodations located in this picturesque West Cornish coastal town that offers a range of beautifully designed properties, each with its own charm and character, making them the perfect destination for a relaxing and rejuvenating getaway.
And best of all, they have four dog-friendly cottages, Harbour, Curno, Zennor and Island, that welcome our canine companions all-year round. A wonderful weekend away, great company and dogs, what more could you want?
Dog-Friendly Stays in St. Ives with Sail Lofts
As many of you may know, St Ives is a charming town located on the west coast of Cornwall, famous for its stunning beaches, turquoise waters, and picturesque landscapes. This idyllic location has attracted artists and creatives for over a century, who have been inspired by the natural beauty of the area.
Sail Lofts Holidays has a range of luxurious properties, each one designed to provide guests with the ultimate comfort and relaxation. From cosy one-bedroom apartments to spacious four-bedroom townhouses, there really is something for everyone. The properties are beautifully decorated with a contemporary and stylish flair, while retaining the charm of the traditional Cornish architecture from the original buildings. Many of the properties have awesome original features such as exposed wooden beams and stone walls, adding to the character and authenticity of a stay. They are also adorned with a whole host of stunning artworks which is a nice touch and gets you into the mood for a visit to Tate St. Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, both of which are just a short walk away.
All properties come with lots of modern amenities such as fully equipped kitchens, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi. Some of the larger properties also have private balconies, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and taking in stunning views. There was even a TV in the bathroom in one of our group's apartments!
Another great feature is the showers and changing area in the communal courtyard which is perfect for washing off after a surf or sandy stroll with the dogs on the beach.
One of the standout features of Sail Lofts Holidays, however, is its exceptional customer service. The team at Sail Lofts is dedicated to ensuring that each guest has a memorable and enjoyable stay. They offer a range of services, including daily housekeeping, concierge service, wine lists and even the option to have a private chef come to the property to cook a delicious meal.
The amazing location of Sail Lofts Holidays is also one of its key selling points. The properties are located just a short walk from the town centre, where guests can explore the narrow streets and alleys, visit the local shops and galleries, or enjoy a meal at one of the many fantastic restaurants. The harbour and beaches are also just a stone's throw away, making it easy to spend a day relaxing on the sand, taking a dip in the sea, enjoying an ice cream or just walking and playing with your dogs ‘til your heart’s content. We were lucky enough to go on a weekend when the weather was particularly good and spent some excellent hours exploring the area with the dogs by our sides. There is plenty to do outside and the coast path is easily accessible too, perfect for our four-legged friends. Sail Lofts are also just a 15-minute drive from the Natural Cornish Pet Shop and Doggy Daycare Cornwall site, in St. Erth, where you can get all the treats, foods and chews you could possibly need on your holiday, plus some of the best doggy daycare in Cornwall if need a few dog-free hours on your holiday!
Sail Lofts Holidays is a truly exceptional holiday accommodation, we enjoyed our stay so much and were really sad to go after just a few days. They offer luxury, comfort, and a fantastic location in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK, if we do say so ourselves! Whether you are looking for a romantic retreat, a break with your dogs or a fantastic family holiday, Sail Lofts Holidays has something to offer for everyone.
So if you’re ever considering a break in sunny St. Ives, I would highly recommend a stay at Sail Lofts. With its exceptional customer service, delightfully dog-friendly accommodations, luxurious properties, and the most fantastic location in town, it really is one not to miss out on!
