We stayed here once again with our teenage boys and beagle. Warrens was exactly as expected, the facilities were fantastic and we used the heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi several times and had it to ourselves. The indoor pool, steam room and sauna were again immaculately kept. We ate out at the Weir restaurant a couple of times and had...

Whalesborough is simply the best dog friendly resort we have visited in the south west, all the staff are friendly and helpful.

The family run Whalesborough Holiday Cottages & Spa surpassed our expectations in all areas, starting out with the owners being exceptionally welcoming and friendly when we first arrived, even though we were later than planned! Throughout our week with them there was nothing that was too much trouble and they really go that extra mile to make you feel right...

Our first time at Whalesborough and the accommodation was excellent! The bed was extremely comfortable and the decor was modern and tastefully done. Facilities were first class no hesitation in recommending to others. Lots of restaurants not far away for those who prefer not to cook or their are take always also not far.

This was our third year at Whalesborough and our second stay in Nans House. We like the large enclosed garden, plenty of room for the dog and grandchildren to play. Th children enjoyed being close to a playground which no one else seemed to have discovered, so they had it all to themselves and we could watch them from the...
