About the property

Detached period cottage in Tredrizzick, Nr. Rock, Cornwall, England - Period cottage just outside Rock with secluded sunny garden. Peaceful location near surfing/sailing

The Cottage (sleeping 6+) is a charming detached traditional Cornish cottage in Tredrizzick Green, with its own private, secluded south facing lawned garden. It is ideally situated for exploring all the attractions of the North Cornish coast, being just over a mile from the hustle and bustle of ROCK (famous for sailing and water sports) and the ferry to PADSTOW. POLZEATH (surfing) and DAYMER BAY (child-friendly beach with rock pools, safe swimming and windsurfing) are a couple of miles away.

About Fiona Beckett

We acquired The Cottage 20 years ago, having spent many happy summer holidays in the area. We decided to let our property out in order to make improvements to it (including installing central heating and double glazing), whilst trying to maintain the homely, family feel of the cottage. We absolutely love the cottage (complete with “retro” bathroom) and hope guests will appreciate its charm and not expect an impersonal, immaculate modern rental property.

Fiona Beckett purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Fiona Beckett chose Saint Minver

Our parents first brought us to this area of Cornwall in the 1960's. We have always loved the rugged coastline, the cliff top walk and the lazy days building sandcastles, picnicking on the rocks and surfing.

We used to surf, using wooden boards, in our swimwear with a t-shirt to prevent chaffing. Today our children prefer the less stoic option of a wetsuit and "8ft foamie"!

What makes this cottage unique

Pretty and secluded garden

An ideal location for a great week on the north Devon coast, and everything we needed in the cottage which was also nice and secluded, and close to wonderful walks

Perfect holiday cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, homely cottage, which is perfectly located for the golf course at St Enodoc, days on the beach, Rock’s excellent butcher, baker and fishmonger or as a base from which to explore Cornwall’s coastal walks. We’ve stayed here twice now and it’s worked out really well both times.

The quiet garden is a lovely, tranquil place to enjoy a glass or two after a hectic day and the cottage itself has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The spacious master bedroom, with its modern en-suite bathroom, is certainly very comfortable.

All in all, a great cottage to rent for a holiday to remember.

Car: necessary


Tredrizzick is just over a mile from Rock (famous for sailing, watersports and its sandy beaches) and the ferry to Padstow. Daymer Bay (under 2 miles) is a large beach, ideal for families with young children as it has lots of rock pools, golden sand for buckets & spades and it is safe for paddling and swimming. Through the sand dunes you can find the picturesque St Enodoc church. Polzeath (2 miles) is famous for its surfing (you can hire wetsuits/boards and book surf lessons).


The nearest railway station is BODMIN PARKWAY (just over 15 miles) and the nearest airport is NEWQUAY (20 miles). A car is required to fully explore the area and there is parking beside the property. The Cottage is situated in Tredrizzick Green, which is off the main Tredrizzick road behind a car parking area, almost opposite Old School Close.


Rock has a small but very well stocked supermarket as well as a garage (which sells logs). There is a huge Tesco on the outskirts of the market town of Wadebridge (7 miles) as well as the usual banks, chemists etc.

Further Details:

The Camel Trail is loved by cyclists of all ages and abilities and runs along the old railway line from Padstow to Wadebridge and on to Bodmin. Bicycles can be hired including pull-along trailers for little ones. There are numerous National Trust properties to visit; the nearest being Lanhydrock House and Pencarrow. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan at St Austell are just over 20 miles away. Further afield The Minack open air Theatre at Porthcurno (near Land’s End) is worth a visit. There are many restaurants in the area, most notably Rick Stein’s in Padstow (you need to book a table well in advance) and Nathan Outlaw at the St Enodoc Hotel. For those with simpler tastes there are excellent pubs, which serve food. We particularly like The Maltsters Arms at Chapel Amble and The St Kew Inn. The pretty coastal town of Port Isaac, where the TV series Doc Martin was filmed, is approximately 8 miles. You can also go mackerel fishing from Padstow or Rock and take pleasure trips in either the Jubilee Queen or in a powerboat. For those in need of pampering there is The Cowshed spa at the St Moritz in Trebetherick (a couple of miles away). The St Moritz also has an indoor and outdoor pool.
