About Deborah Helps

We live only an hour away from the North Cornwall Coast and were really excited to be able to purchase the cottage for our family to use as a second home.

Our children love the Cornish beaches and are keen surfers so this peaceful, safe cottage is perfect for us all.

Deborah Helps purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Deborah Helps chose North Cornwall

We wanted to buy a property near to the surfing beaches for our children, whilst satisfying the rest of the family with fabulous coastal walks, restaurants and some peace and tranquillity. Whist we are a stones throw from Padstow, Rock, Polzeath and surrounding attractions, the property is set in a quiet, safe rural setting, away from hustle and bustle. There is plenty of space for the children to play, woods to explore and a sunny aspect to enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

We have just finished refurbishing the property. We have installed a new well equipped kitchen and bathroom, redecorated throughout and furnished from new. All beds and appliances are brand new. Free Wi Fi is provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage suited us perfectly, it had everything you need plus very clean, modern and beautifully decorated. The attention to detail is very professional from lovely filter coffee to a well stocked accessory store full of beach toys. The location is great for many places we visit, boat across to Padstow from Rock, Wadebridge for groceries or Polzeath beach, all with 10 minutes away. In 6 years of coming to Cornwall this cottage is by far the best, made all the more stress free as the owner is amazing. We will be back!

Great comfy cottage, extremely well equipped and in a great location to explore North Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideally situated to explore North Cornwall and is only 5 mins drive from the beaches at Polzeath and Daymer Bay.

The property itself is extremely homely and comfy and having spent two weeks there with indifferent weather it is brilliantly equipped with everything you could need both inside and out (we needn't have packed so much!).

The cottage is perfect for families with a large safe outdoor space surrounding the property.

The owner, Debs communication was excellent from the minute we made the initial enquiry, through to 'joining' instructions and asking if everything was ok once we arrived. There even a welcoming pack when we got there.

Would differently recommend this property and would not hesitate to stay here again when holidaying in Cornwall.

Clean, tidy and very well appointed. The wifi & welcome pack is much appreciated. Whilst we have never required the use of the log burner, I can imagine it is a great facility to have. We often sit in the garden on a sunny day & enjoy the private seating area. We love how quiet & secluded it is, you will often go a whole week without seeing a neighbour. This place is a winner!

Owner's Response: Lovely to have you to stay again. I have tried really hard to balance the room with the sizing of all the furniture and equipment. I will certainly consider it when the TV needs replacing. You are welcome to return anytime x

Beautiful Cottage in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the best we have ever stayed in. We found it clean and tidy, which reflects on the owners who put a lot of care into maintaining the quality. Welcome pack was appreciated. However we did have a sainsburys home delivery order for our arrival, saves that mad chase for essentials. Communication with Debs has been prompt, and still cant thank you enough for everything you have done, which made our break possible x Ideal for couples & families, with great outdoor space. Close to Rock & Polzeath, and short drive to Padstow. Great cycle trails and beach walks. Rock to Polzeath return walk about 5 miles, check tide times for beach part! National Trust Bedruthan Steps & Lanhydrock was our fav, and dont miss Chough Bakery Padstow, for Pasties. We will return again.

Beautiful cottage in lovely quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautifully decorated and very well equipped and is in a lovely quiet spot. It is very close to all the lovely beaches around Rock, Padstow and Port Isaac and it is also near enough for days out to Penzance, the Minnick Theatre, the Eden Project etc. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby but it was also nice to spend evenings in the cosy cottage. The owner obviously loves the cottage and could not have been more helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely visit the cottage again.
