Sarah purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Sarah chose North Cornwall

My family loves Cornwall and Rock in particular. The white sandy beaches, the surfing, sailing and ice creams are a huge hit with my children. The grown-ups love the walks, golf and amazing restaurants. We bought Seamist to allow us all to enjoy a classic seaside holiday and as somewhere where we will want to come back year after year. Whether it is building sandcastles on the beautiful beaches, within walking distance of the house, or eating fish and chips on the harbour wall in Padstow or cycling the Camel Trail, there is always lots to do. Seamist is tucked away in the centre of Rock down a private drive making it quiet and safe and coming home to an open fire in the colder months is always special, making the house feel warm and homely. We love it and can't wait to return.

What makes this bungalow unique

Tucked away down a private drive but a 4 minute walk from the shops in the centre of Rock, Seamist is ideally situated. Access to the beaches and St Enodoc Golf Course is easy too, by foot or car. A completely private and enclosed garden is ideal to sit in during summer evenings and for children to play in. Our home is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Towels are provided, beds are made-up for your arrival, there is lots of hanging space and tea, coffee and milk are waiting for you when you arrive to welcome you. The open-fire is lovely on colder evenings; on warmer ones there is a big gas BBQ and teak garden furniture for you to use. Surfboards and bucket and spades are left for you to use. Seamist is our home and we welcome you to use it and its facilities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We recently stayed at Seamist in Rock when visiting Cornwall on holiday. It was the perfect base from which to explore the area and we would recommend this property to anyone looking for a suitable place to stay in Rock. It is really well laid out and the garden includes a lovely patio area with table, chairs plus a gas barbecue, which we used regularly during our stay. It was easy to walk to the nearby shops and local amenities whilst we made good use of the access across the golf course to Daymer Bay and Polzeath beyond. Seamist is ideal for both families and couples. We will definitely stay there again when we next visit Cornwall, which will hopefully be soon! Definately 5 stars!

Wonderful location and home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location to explore the delights of Rock. Very peaceful location it's hard to believe you are so close to all the amenities. We didn't use the car once during our short break because all of the beaches are nearby with public footpath access literally right outside the door.

Well kept, spacious and tastefully decorated home ensured a comfortable stay with everything you need for a short or longer stay. The owner, Sarah was so thoughtful with her welcome gifts and contact we felt like she was welcoming us as her friends, rather than clients. Perfect, can't wait to return.

Family holiday at Seamist with Grandparents

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the property all was exactly as had been advertised.

The place was clean homely and most of all just right for 2 families.

The kids had bits of games and a decent garden to play in the amenities of Rock all within 5-10 minute walk.

The coastal walks were brilliant and Rock to Padstowe on the boat is not to be missed. The beaches clean and not overly populated.

i do not see this as a criticism just a point that its a pity the bedroom with the bathroom at the other side of the house has bunk beds and not a small double.

We would certainly recommend the Seamist as a lovely place to stay and Rock in general as a great place to holiday at

A Beautful homely and tranquil stay in Rock

  • 5 of 5

Seamist is a beautiful, homely, tranquil and comfortable home away from home. It is beautifully situated within a well manicured mature garden both front and back with shrubs, and flowers. It was a pleasure to have breakfast outside each morning and enjoy sitting in such beautiful surroundings. The bungalow itself it very spacious, light, bright and spotlessly clean . The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could wish for . There is a great powerful shower and a further bathroom. The small cul de sac on which it is situated is calm and quiet , located near to the bakery, deli, butchers, newsagent and The Dining Room restaurant to name a few all within walking distance. A walk in the other direction either via the footpaths and the main road or through the near by St Enodoc Golf golf course and sand dunes brings you to the beautiful dog friendly golden sand beach at Rock, a mere 15 / 20 minutes away. Continue walking around the bay and you will reach Daymer Bay and St. Enodoc Church. At Rock beach there is parking and a number of restaurants and a cafe, a sailing club and the ferry over to Padstow harbour which takes about 5 minutes where there can be found numerous restaurants, cafes and shops. Also not to be missed is Porthilly Beach again a short walk from the Bungalow where mussels are caught and landed . The owners Sarah and Wayland are delightful and a pleasure to speak with . They genuinely care about your stay and are most helpful with any queries you may have and provide lots of information about Rock and the surrounding area. Sue the manager of Seamist also calls to the property to make sure you have everything you need and advises on the surrounding area . We have never been so well looked after. We will definitely recommend Seamist to friends and family and will be returning.

Cornish home from home

  • 5 of 5

Seamist is our delightful home from home in Rock. Perfectly located for the beaches, restaurants, sailing school, golf course and shops. My family and I have been returning there twice a year for the last few years and every time we see it, we fall in love with it again. It is beautifully maintained and serviced, immaculately clean, homely and welcoming. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many self-catering properties in the UK and abroad, some good, some not so good but Seamist is always top of our list of places to return to - we love this house! From the moment you walk in through the door, you are struck by the peace and quiet, the space, the cleanliness and the feeling that you can kick off your shoes and relax. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, the bathrooms have amazing hot, powerful showers, the garden is safe for children and dogs, the open fire in the living/dining room is a great focal point on chilly evenings and the location is perfect - walking distance to shops, restaurants, beaches and cafes.Thank you for another wonderful stay, see you again soon!
