Eco-Boutique Family & Dog-Friendly Stays in Cornwall

The Emerald is the UK’s first ever zero carbon accommodation – a luxury environment and secluded sanctuary to escape from the crowds.

We wanted to show that you can be environmentally friendly and still have the finest quality of everything; that you can enjoy a hidden part of Cornwall and somewhere you can choose to be active or choose to do nothing but relax…



Enter The Emerald, a collection of luxury eco hideaways, deep in the Cornish countryside.


This peaceful, dog-friendly stay is the perfect retreat for couples and families looking to relax and spend time together.

The whole site can sleep up to 26 guests (plus cots) and with the dogs too, you don't have to leave anyone behind!

Enjoy a luxury holiday in Cornwall, only a short distance from Falmouth and Truro and all that Cornwall has to offer – including spectacular beaches, fantastic restaurants and attractions such as the Eden Project. 

We are a boutique resort and our properties feature the finest furnishings, modern amenities and a real sense of privacy. Located close to Truro, we are the ideal venue for your holiday, with the beaches of the north and south coasts all within easy reach.

For days where you don’t want to leave the estate, take a dip in the indoor heated swimming pool, go for a stroll around our picturesque grounds, enjoy a game of tennis, or spend time with a glass of wine enjoying panoramic countryside views from your balcony or hot tub.

"Had a lovely week in The Gatehouse, my daughters didn’t want to come home! The property had everything we could ask for, the kitchen is amazing! Beds are super comfy. The girls loved the pool and we enjoyed having a gym and tennis court to use. We certainly hope to come back. Thank you for a fab holiday."
