Cottage In St Minver, Nr. Rock, Cornwall



Updated: 25-Oct-2016
Cottage, St Minver, Nr. Rock, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location Only A Few Minutes By Car To Polzeath Or Rock

Skyview Cottage has 2 bedrooms and is part of a 18th century converted stone barn that sleeps 4, so is good for families or couples. Situated with other holiday cottages sharing a communal area to the front this provides a great space for children to play and adults to socialise if they wish. The cottage has its own private enclosed garden to the rear with table, chairs and bbq. Downstairs there is an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area. House trained dogs are welcome with the proviso that they are not left in the cottage alone. There is ample parking for 2 cars. This is a good place to explore North Cornwall.

About the Owner

We have been coming to North Cornwall for the past 14 years and have spent many a happy time with our family in and around the Rock/Polzeath Area. We have a dog called Poppy who loves to come with us and enjoy the lovely long cliff top and beach walks. We all enjoy sailing and surfing so this is an ideal location for us all. We originally started off making sandcastles on the beach with our young family and friends. Now they have grown up, they bring their friends and still enjoy all the that the area has to offer.

Lovely, well equipped house in a great setting.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week, the perfect base to explore as much, or as little, of Cornwall as you would like to. Fantastic beach only a couple of miles away in Rock.

The house is really well equipped to a high standard with everything we needed.

From the Owner

After having many a happy time in this area we decided we wanted to have a permanent place to come to. It is a short drive to all the activities we enjoy and there is also the ruggedness and natural wildness that Cornwall is known for. We like that you can be with people if you want to be or find a quiet peaceful place if you don't.

From the Owner

For us it is that you have sailing, surfing, shops, beaches all within 4 miles of the property. We also like that we have a large communal area for children to play in while parents can relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine on the seating provided or watch from inside the cottages knowing they are safe.
