About Wendy Head

We are Mark, Wendy & Ellie and we live on Dartmoor in Devon with our hens, ducks and cats. We owned holiday cottages in a nearby village for 12 years, then took a break to bring up our daughter. We had the opportunity to purchase property in Rock, Cornwall which have been successful as holiday rentals. We have now converted the barn which was the site of the original Manor House before it burnt down. It has a 'home from home' feel which is important so you can relax and enjoy your holiday. We have added things we have collected over the years to make it feel homely for our guests. If you wish to plan a two centre holiday we aim to provide short breaks at both location except in high season.

We are nearby if needed but Cowshed has a private garden giving full seclusion for relaxation.

Wendy Head purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Wendy Head chose Cornwall

We had the opportunity to purchase Bryher which gives us the flexibility to use it ourselves when Hollyhocks is booked and to make it available to larger groups as it is so close. It provides an excellent base for smaller families or couples seeking a romantic break, for those who like us, love the sandy beaches, lovely walks and Padstow's foodie establishments and shops.

What makes this apartment unique

Bryher is situated near to good local shops, deli, butcher, bakery, Spar, Fish & Chips and boutiques. It is situated within walking distance of sandy beaches, Camel Sailing & Waterski school, and stunning coastal walks. Boat trips from Padstow and Coasteering for more adventurous days. Porthilly beach is 15 minute walk, Rock, 20 minutes. There is kite/windsurfing at Daymer Bay 1.5 miles by car, by foot at low tide. Surfing lessons at Polzeath, 2 miles, Coastguard patrolled, very shallow for a long way for children with rock pools, more boutiques and cafes, restaurants. We are happy to offer short breaks in low and mid seasons, please enquire.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A late booking with which we were more than happy. The flat had everything - including recently updated fast and free broadband. It's very accessible to all that North Cornwall has to offer, allowing us to walk along memory lane - as well as the challenging coastal paths - and to enjoy excellent eating at Paul Ainsworth in Padstow and Nathan Outlaw's freshly starred Fish Kitchen in Port Isaac. Mr & Mrs J. Oct 14

We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed the week and the flat immensely.'

The flat is lovely and we had a fabulous time there. We found it very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Miss CSH August 14



Thanks so much for a great week in Bryher. It's a lovely apartment and was very well equipped so fab. I would very happily come back so thanks so much, and for all the helpful info. Miss B July 14



What a fantastic apartment, thanks for having us, reluctantly leaving. Mr I July 14

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

A perfect place to stay if you love Rock and wish to explore the surrounding areas....

The apartment is immaculate with every facility you could need and the owners are on hand to make sure you are comfy (thank you Wendy for telling me how to work the tv's) .btw they are not complicated I'm just useless at remote controls!

The location makes for a very easy holiday. Waking distance to local delis, pubs, supermarket, gorgeous fish and chips and of course the beach. Then you are at the right end of Rock to nip out in the car to visit other local places. The easy and inclusive parking on the drive is great.

I couldn't recommend it more and look forward to a return stay soon

Compact and well located! Would stay again

  • 4 of 5

We loved the apartment and found it was well suited to two people, spacious for its size and well equipped. The location is good with a moderate walk to Rock, but if the weather wasn't as good as we were lucky to have, I would say you would want to drive rather than walk.

We cooked a few dinners in the apartment and found it was well equipped.

We did find that the shower was very small and not very powerful but it does the job and the bathroom itself is very nice and clean. The other thing that we would suggest is bringing dishwasher tablets if wanting to use the dishwasher as these weren't provided.

All in all we had a great stay and would definitely stay again. Thanks Wendy!

Excellent value in Rock

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely stay in this fab apartment. Compact well equipped kitchen, very comfortable accommodation and a nice homely feel. Good local shops and Pityme pub is nearby as is the Sharps brewery. If you are into your beer this is a must visit! Wendy was very helpful with our booking and gave us lots of tips on where to go, etc. Overall, excellent value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending and we hope to return one day.

Great base to explore North Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well equipped apartment which suited our needs perfectly. It was immaculately clean and had everything you could want for a holiday base.

We chose Rock as an alternative to Padstow - you can walk down to the beach (approximately 1.5 miles) and catch the ferry across which saved having to try and park in Padstow. From Rock it's easy to get around and explore the area and this made a great base. Would recommend to anyone wanting to visit north Cornwall and not want to stay in the centre of a busy tourist resort.
