About Rob Shillaker

I bought this lovely cottage in 2006, based on a decision to buy a holiday cottage once the children had left home after many happy years of camping and caravanning holidays at Mother Ivey's Bay (only 12 miles away). I view it really a second home, used by family and friends; so many guests are regular 'returners', that I view many of them as friends and enjoy talking to them and meeting them as often as possible (without intruding on their holiday, of course). I am very practical and do most of the upkeep and maintenance myself, so take a great deal of pride in what I do and the appearance and feel of the cottage. I hope that everyone who stays fees relaxed and at home and will want to come back to this beautiful part of Cornwall time and time again

Why Rob Shillaker chose Cornwall

To me, it is the perfect cottage in the perfect location; easily accessible, a lovely quiet village with great neighbours and so many beaches, walks, golf courses, attractions, etc. all within easy reach.

My aim is to make you feel as comfortable, 'at home' and relaxed as possible and I will always take any suggestions and recommendations seriously.

Great little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great location on the outskirts of Wadebridge a lovely market town with a good fishmonger and 2 excellent butchers.

Nice to be able to walk along the Camel into town and also to walk along the Camel trail on the otherside. Near the Daymer Bay / Rock beach, which is fantastic especially if you have a dog as it is pet friendly all year round. You can catch the ferry accross from Rock to Padstow which is a pleasant experience are far better than the drive and jostle for parking. The only downside was the garden was not secure so dogs/children would need to be watched
