About the property

Cottage in Rock, Cornwall, England - Rural Location Between Rock, Polzeath And Daymer Bay

This spacious property has a large mature garden with secluded areas for reading, and a large lawn for ball games and hide and seek. The garden consists of mature trees, shrubs and flowers which attract wildlife. To the front of the house there is a shady verandah under which a peaceful tea or evening drinks can be enjoyed. The dining area has easily opened French windows allowing guests to enjoy eating outside where there is a large garden table and chairs. The kitchen has a Rayburn cooker, which during the colder months maintains a constant warmth throughout the house. The sitting room which seats 10 comfortably has the benefit of a large wood burner with a basket of logs provided. The area in which the cottage is located has a wide selection of attractions:- the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, National Trust Gardens including Trelissick and Lanhydrock. There are wonderful cliff walks along the coastal paths of the rustic North Cornwall coastline. Polzeath beach is well known as one of the best surfing beaches in North Cornwall with lots of cafes, restaurants, surf shops as well as surf lessons and board hire. The beach has life guards during the summer.

Daymer Bay is at the mouth of the camel estruary and is a big sandy beach leading all the way up to Rock with sand dunes behind the beach. The waves are smaller than at Polzeath so more suited to swimming and wind or kite surfing.

Grenaway beach is between Polzeath and Daymer Bay and is a great beach at low tide for rock pooling. Rock is great for sailing, water skiing and other water sports. From here take the ferry over to Padstow and visit some of the famous Rick Steins restaurants or one of the many other great restaurants, cafes and bars.

A great house, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We had a late August week - four adults, three teenagers and two under 8 (and two dogs). The house was great, perfect for our needs. Close to Daymer and Polzeath beaches and the shops are a short walk or even shorter drive. The kitchen is well equipped and the WiFi is fast and unlimited (vital with teenagers in the house). Our only small suggestion would be to make the garden secure (with some fencing) to allow peace of mind with toddlers and dogs, given the road outside. Also, a barbecue would be welcome. Overall though, Moor Cottage was perfect for us.

Beautiful Cottage - Hope to Visit Again Soon

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in a great location, very light and spacious with a very well equipped kitchen. Our party consisted of 5 adults and 4 children and everyone commented on how lovely the cottage was. Located within a short drive to lots of different beaches and within walking distance to Rock where we caught the boat across to Padstow for the day. Not far from Wadebridge either where we hired some bikes for the day and cycled on the Camel trail.

Great holiday and lovely cottage - hope to visit again very soon.

A delight!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic time had by all. The property was clean, tidy and had every kitchen utensil, pot, pan, crockery and cutlery you could ask for. The party included 4 adults and 2 children (5 and 7) plus 3 dogs and the garden provided sufficient space for cricket and football but is not fully enclosed. There is a pond in the garden but this has been securely fenced off.

The property is in walking distance of Rock and there is a pleasant walk (20 minutes) across a well marked path into the village (although some places were very muddy), this cuts off the road walk which would take significantly longer. The Rock and Roll Plaice in Rock provides a good fish & chips take away service, but maybe a bit too much salt on the chips.

We definitely recommend this property and will hopefully be back in the future.

fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property - very clean, light and well furnished. Plenty of space for our party of 9 (5 adults and 4 teenagers). The lounge was really cosy, especially when we lit the log burner in the evening. A couple of minutes drive from our favourite beaches at Daymer Bay and Polzeath. Nice pub a couple of minutes walk away. What a great place to spend the week!

Great Accommodation, Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Moor Cottage with our grown-up children and grand child. The accommodation boasted the most equipped kitchen we've ever encountered. The location was on the edge of Rock and great for access to not only Rock and Padstow, but also the surfing beaches on the north coast. Plenty of room for 8 adults and two dogs. The information pack sent out after we paid for the cottage, contained information on everything you can think of in the local area, a real bonus.

We will definitely be back.
