About Richard Taylor

I am 54 years of age and work as a Senior University Lecturer. I have spent holidays in the Polzeath / Rock area since the age of 2! and learned to swim at Daymer Bay as a 3 year old. This is a very special place and one can never tire of its timeless charm.

Richard Taylor purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Richard Taylor chose Cornwall

I purchased this property for its modern design, perfect location and accessibility to the very best that beautiful Cornwall has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

I love anything to do with the outdoors and the sea therefore this is my idea of heaven on earth. Long coastal walks, surfing at Polzeath, wreck diving, fishing, golf at the championship course at St Endoch, gastronomic food at Steins / Ainsworth's No6 and Nathan Outlaw's to name but a handful of the delights that this area has to offer.

The adjacent St Minver Holiday Park offers additional utility such as a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna, restaurant and lounge bar with entertainment, Sky sports, kid's clubs and numerous other activities.

A very nicely maintained and spacious lodge which was well equipped in a nice quiet setting. A nice base for exploring beautiful Cornwall. If we are ever in Cornwall in the future we would definitely book this again.

Perfect location, delightful lodge, clean, comfortable. Excellent park facilities, beaches nearby.

  • 5 of 5

The lodge owner, Richard, made our booking easy - good communication before and after holiday with a speedy return of our deposit. The lodge is situated in probably the best spot on the St Minver Holiday Park with much privacy and yet close to all the facilities. We took our grandchild of 4, swam in the pool every day as well as visited the beaches nearby - all wonderful & we left planning a return visit - need I say more!

Really lovely lodge.

  • 5 of 5

A real home from home. This lodge was perfect for us and our 2 children. Everything you need in a holiday home. Location was excellent for a choice of beaches and close to the camel trail. We used the on-site facilities which were good & staff were really helpful. Great to have the washer/drier & dishwasher too! Will definitely book again.

A very comfortable lodge in a superb setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the lodge in June '17 and really enjoyed our stay. The lodge was exactly as described and very comfortable, clean and well-equipped. Everything we needed, and more, was there.The booking process with Richard was as straightforward as could be, all my questions replied to quickly.

We planned to cover a few miles walking and did this with walks along the S. west coastal path from Padstow, having caught the ferry from Rock, then a walk from Lundy Bay (NT car park), a walk on Bodmin Moor to climb Brown Willie, a visit to Tintagel (a must). All these are close by and can be reached, ferry permitting, in a fairly short time.

Take a stroll to the Manor House but continue up the stairs at the back. Turn right then walk up the slope and you will find a nice quiet pub. Turn left at the top of the stairs and you can find your way to a lovely old church.

We have no hesitation recommending the lodge to friends/family.

We were very lucky with the weather, every day the sun shone and it was warm/hot. This set off the beautiful Cornish coast and countryside perfectly.

Polzeath @ Daymer Bay


Porthilly Cove (1.5 miles) is just around the corner from the Sailing Club at Rock.

Daymer Bay (1.5 miles) Great for wind surfers and for small children wanting to fish in the rock pools or play in the sand.

Polzeath Beach (3 miles) - Polzeath beach is a large expanse of beautiful sand ideal for surfers and beach enthusiasts. It is acclaimed as one of the best surfing beaches in the country.

Padstow - (2.5 miles by water taxi from Rock) Undeniably the gastronomic Capitol of Cornwall.


The use of a car is recommended in order to access the area fully. The nearest railway station is Bodmin Parkway about 15 miles away. Newquay airport is about 20 miles away.


Rock (1.5 miles) Padstow (2.5 miles, via water taxi from Rock) Polzeath (3 miles) Daymer Bay (1.5 miles) Port Issac, historic fishing village (7 miles) Newquay (12 miles) Bodmin (11 miles)

Further Details:

St Minver is well placed for easy access to local shops in Rock and Polzeath and the larger town of Wadebridge is 10 minutes away by car. Here there are a wider variety of shops, supermarkets and banks. The area is very well served for restaurants - Rick Stein has several in Padstow - we particularly enjoy The Waterfront and Café India in Polzeath, St Kew Inn and No 1 in Rock. Of course there are many others too numerous to mention. The ferry runs from Rock to Padstow all year and in the evening a water taxi is available to Padstow restaurants. Fishing and pleasure trips are run from the harbour. The Camel Trail (the old railway line) is fun for cyclists. It runs alongside the estuary from Padstow to Wadebridge and on to Bodmin and bikes can be hired locally. The quaint coastal village of Port Isaac (location for Doc Martin) is about 15 mins away by car. There are lots of things to do in the area - for example the Eden Project, Falmouth Maritime Museum and the legends of King Arthur at Tintagel.
