As some of the world’s top pedigree pups competed at Crufts last week, a boutique Cornish hotel is aiming for ‘best in show’ all year with its ‘happy-hound’ holidays.
Talland Bay Hotel – perched on the clifftops between Looe and Polperro – describes itself as a doggie paradise, a few hundred yards from the South West Coastal path and close to dog-friendly beaches.
The four-star hotel, which is owned by a family of dog-lovers, aims to ensure man’s best friend has the ultimate canine retreat. From the provision of a luxury pooch pamper-pack with soft fleecy blankets, feeding mats and home-baked dog treats through to torches for starlit late night walkies, the hotel says it takes its pet-friendly provision to the ultimate level of luxury.

The hotel provides distinctive doggy décor and a diverse choice of dog-friendly accommodation and sea views.
And after working up an appetite exploring Cornwall, guests can enjoy award-winning cuisine in the brasserie or terrace accompanied, of course, by their four legged friends.
The culinary delights are produced by Michelin-trained chef Nick Hawke, who has earned two AA rosettes for his cuisine. Meanwhile, the doggy diners are spoilt,  too – Alfie & Molly’s dog bakery supplies Talland Bay with handmade dog treats.
Hotel Manager Stephen Waite said: “Our guests love their dogs and a happy dog means a happy guest, who more often than not returns to us time and again.”
The hotel offers a ‘Wallace and Gromit’ package to encourage dog owners to stay with their pooch.
