Excellent location for access to dog friendly beaches by foot and by car. The dog washes are a great idea, given the time of year and helps maintain the 5* interiors of the cottages. We stayed in Beachcombers which is lovely. Kids had a great time in the swimming pool and using the facilities. Last time we came we bought necessities with us but opted to use the local Sainsbury’s and Co-op this time which is only a 5 minute drive away. My only moan is that on arrival it would have been nice to have been welcomed and introduced to the site and the cottage. Due to social distancing measures, I couldn’t get into the reception (as others were taking time to check in), so I was simply handed a key by a passer by! Useful to get service but missing the warm welcome and advice. I’d recommend these cottages to anyone. You won’t be disappointed. We shall return.

This was our second trip to Whaleborough , we travelled in July when things were just opening up. We felt totally safe. Although the indoor Swimming Pool was not open , our Grandkids used the outdoor pool every day. We travelled with three dogs and were in Arundle Cottage. Which was modern , Clean and worthy of 5 stars. The facilities for dogs , is the best we have come across. We walked over the fields , down to the beach and used the Doggy Spa Shed for a wash , clean up and doggy treat before going back in the cottage . They provide Dog Cages and Blankets . We were lucky with the weather , but there is lots to do , with the indoor barn , for Football , Badminton etc. Our Grandkids loved the animal feeding and went every day , collecting eggs . The cottages suit families , couples and ,Grandparents . We ate in the Weir on three occasions and the food was great. James and Sharon and the whole team took every step to comply with the lockdown rules and kept us informed of changes . We would not hesitate to recomend Whaleborough and we have already booked for next year.

It was our first holiday at Whalesborough and we all had a super time. Will definitely go back again. Because of Covid19 we were unable to use the gym/spa area but luckily the outdoor swimming pool/jacuzzi was open which we all enjoyed using. Our Golden Retriever thoroughly enjoyed her stay too with lots of lovely walks and having our own enclosed garden was great for her to play in and great for us too to have BBQs and a glass of wine in the evenings. Great place and well thought out.

We've just come to the end of a week long stay and have had a fabulous time at Whalesborough. We stayed in Nan's house which was very clean and well equipped. Despite the cottages all being occupied, the site was remarkably quiet and we had a real sense of privacy. The on site facilities are what made the stay. Our 2 year old loved pets corner and the outdoor play area as well as the indoor play barn. We also spent time in the indoor pool and enjoyed feeding the animals and collecting fresh eggs with Farmer Dan. I felt covid measures were well considered with hand sanitiser dotted around the site and anti viral spray provided. Such a beautiful place to stay and to explore Cornwall. I think we just found our new annual staycation!!
