Sarah purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Sarah chose Saint Minver Lowlands

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!

Our Stay in Rock

  • 5 of 5

Sea mist had everything we wanted. It was ideally positioned for all activities and places of interest and extremely well fitted out with fridge, freezer, washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, wi-fi, t.v. etc. The garden was ideal and secure if you had small children or dogs. We cannot fault it in any way - it was more comfortable and certainly much quieter than our home near Gatwick!!

Sarah Austin, the owner was so nice in every respect. Not interfering at all but generally very helpful and caring.

We love Rock, we have visited every year (last year an exception due to health reasons) and Seamist is probably the pick of all the places we have stayed at. Would most certainly come back here again.

Fabulous property in great location

  • 5 of 5

Just had a fab week - could have done with 2 weeks!

Property very comfortable and clean. Good-sized garden. Within walking distance of shops - amazing clothes shops for such a small place! Lovely walks around area. Bit of a steep climb to waterfront but kept us fit!

Plenty to do in area - particularly enjoyed paddle-boarding at local ski school and body-boarding at nearby Polzeath. Easy reach of Padstow via ferry. Would highly recommend.

Sea mist cottage Wadebridge

  • 5 of 5

Nice property in a quiet area with secluded garden to the rear. Well furnished, two good sizes bedrooms and a smaller bedroom for children. Two nice sized bathrooms.

The cottage is well equipped for home eating.

A downhill stroll to Rock beach and the ferry to Padstow.

Would stay again, recommended.

Absolutely Fabulous bungalow to stay in

  • 5 of 5

As the holiday property details say, Sea Mist is most certainly a home from home! We have stayed in lots of holiday properties across the whole of the UK and can truly say this is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. The biggest selling point for us, apart from its location in lovely Rock, is that it most definitely has a fully enclosed garden for our two beloved dogs, thus ensuring they could not escape out and which is a huge benefit for young children as well. To also be able to walk across the Golf Course, which backs on to this lovely bungalow, to Rock beach and then into Daymer Bay Beach again is absolutely fabulous and which we enjoyed doing early every morning (the dogs loved it too)! The other thing we must mention is the fantastic shower in the shower room, again we have never come across a shower in a holiday property that has such a good pressure on it and a brilliant sized shower cubicle. Overall, we would not hesitate at all in highly recommending Sea Mist to anyone who is looking for a holiday in lovely, Rock, Cornwall. Sue and Paul, Suffolk (April 2017)

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
