Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us in early and for the delicious apple pie cake that awaited us. The Crispin is looking super and it is a real privilege to be here. As I write we are still sitting in the garden with dog and newspapers and having a lovely time and already feeling "on holiday".

Good spacious family house close to central Rock

  • 5 of 5

The Crispin is an ideal rental for three generations of a family to enjoy one of the most beautiful areas of Cornwall. It's a lovely big house, clean and well-equipped, with three bedrooms upstairs and a fourth downstairs with an adjoining shower room. The garden is lovely and private, with plenty of parking space in the front. It's about 15 minutes walk to the beach, and you can also stroll across the golf course to beautiful Daymer Bay. Polzeath, with its fantastic surfing beach, is just a few minutes in the car and Padstow is across the estuary on a short ferry ride.

Plenty of local shops if you want to cook or barbecue or excellent pubs and restaurants to eat out.

Comfortable clean spacious house

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Chrispin. House had everything we needed, good bathroom and shower room comfortable beds.

The Beach was a mile down the road. Good fish and chips half a mile the other way

Delightful walk from the house through the golf course to St Enodoc church and Brea Hill and back through the dunes.

Rock is quiet compared to Padstow but a pleasant place to spend on holiday

Spacious house in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The property is well maintained and spacious, though expensive but that can be explained by being in a popular and affluent village/town in Cornwall.

A major plus is that the property allows a dog.

Fantastic location for runs & walks (with the dog and the family respectively)! Down through the golf course to the beach and along the coast either way.

We planned to go surfing in Polzeath and drove there in great anticipation and were bitterly disappointed. A tiny bay, hugely overcrowded and subsequently when I looked at an surf location review website Polzeath was dealt with very scathingly.

We literally crawled through the village, out the other side and continued to an old family favourite from previous holidays at Widemouth Bay - about 45 minutes if traffic is light.

Fantastic butcher and baker a short walk away plus a Spar. A 20 minute drive meanwhile to nearest Tesco to do a big shop.

For a great meal out for a special occasion go to Nathan Outlaw's restaurant at St. Enodoc hotel. Don't waste your money on the various Rick Stein offerings in Padstow when this is but a short walk away.

Nice little pub down at the bottom of the hill meanwhile selling local beers.

I would thoroughly recommend the place to anyone looking for a family getaway.

lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The Crispin is a lovely, quiet and very comfortable house and we had a super week's holiday there. We particularly enjoyed the tranquil garden and it is an ideal place to bring a dog to. The house is very clean and well maintained and equipped with everything you could possibly want. I would highly recommend it.
