Anchor cottage


Wake to waves crashing an endless sea vista and the inimitable light of Cornwall flooding through the windows. Enough said. The most southerly port this feisty little town faces everything thrown at it. The port has a life of weekly markets, restaurants and cafes along with little arty shops and deli’s. Round the headland and the beach is the perfect place for a dog walk, dip in the water or picnic.

Malvern Hills

This ridge of hills rises from what seems like no-where between Worcestershire and Herefordshire. The Hills demand to be climbed and as reward you get views from the Brecon beacons to the Cotswolds. Dotted with black quaint little villages indie shops and majestic rivers there’s plenty to immerse yourself in. Bring your mutt and wander wild woods, grab a bike and blast downhill or paddle your way down the Wye.
