Description from owner


*The cottage is located away from the main road in a quiet spot but is within a few minutes walk of excellent local shops, restaurants, Porthilly Cove and Rock beach. Having no internal stairs it is ideal for toddlers and for elderly people. The property's 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms make it highly suitable for extended-family holidays, for two families sharing, or for groups of adults with shared interests such as golf or sailing. There are 4 showers in the property as well as a bath and 3 WCs, all stocked with complimentary toiletries and hairdryers. Incidentally, no one staying at Trevethan has to sleep in a bunk bed! There are two doubles with ensuite bathrooms, twin beds in another room which can be linked to make a superking double, and one single and a smaller child bed in a small bedroom suitable for one adult or two children. Each bed has two comfortable pillows, a duvet and blanket supplied. Note, bedlinen and towels are NOT provided except at peak holiday times. Visitors bring their own or hire from us or a local provider separately at a cost of £10 per person.

* As a self-catering holiday home Trevethan is particularly well equipped with a fabulous kitchen area boasting granite worktops, ceramic hob, a retro style classic Smeg fridge-freezer plus additional fridge (plus a drinks fridge elsewhere), a double oven and grill, microwave, and full-size Bosch dishwasher. There is a separate utility room with washer, tumble dryer and drinks chiller. An abundance of pots, pans, cookware, crockery and quality cutlery means not having to wait for the dishwasher to finish washing the last meal's dishes.

* Trevethan has two multi-channel TVs (including radio channels) and DVD players as well as radios, and a music centre. The vaulted sitting room has a wall-mounted flatscreen TV, comfortable seating for eight, and the large dining table has eight chairs. A well-stocked cupboard has plenty of board games, and DVDs. Beach toys and body boards are stored in the utility room for guests to borrow. A high chair is also kept on site.

* There are front and rear gardens at the property. The sunny southwest- facing rear has a lawned area and large stone terrace with teak table and eight teak armchairs. The terrace is a suntrap - great for dining in the evening sun without the wind you get at coastal properties. A barbecue and a wetsuit wash are located in the rear garden as well as a rotary clothes dryer. With the rear garden being enclosed, private and secure, parents can relax while small children play. The sitting room and kitchen overlook the rear garden so it's easy to keep an eye on them. Incidentally, there are no ponds in the gardens and the boiler is sited outside the property so there is no risk inside the property of carbon monoxide.

* Trevethan is popular with golfers since the St Enodoc course is nearby; it is also good for sailing enthusiasts attending Rock's sailing and water sports school. Walkers find it a good base, given access nearby to coastal or cross country walks.

* Cyclists and surfers are well served by this area. The Camel cycle Trail starts in Padstow just a short ferry ride away or at Wadebridge, five miles away where bikes can be hired; there is wind and kite surfing at Daymer Bay, and excellent board surfing at nearby Polzeath.

*Rock is a good starting point for anyone wanting to tour Cornwall's gardens, children's theme parks, and historic attractions, by car.

* The area has some great restaurants to visit, including a good choice in Rock itself. The celebrity chef Paul Ainsworth has a restaurant in Rock whilst Rick Stein's three restaurants in Padstow are just a short ferry ride away. Rick Stein also has a fish and chip eatery and a pub doing inexpensive meals. There are other pubs that do good food and excellent restaurants in Port Isaac and at St Kew as well. At Port Isaac which is a short drive away, Nathan Outlaw has a great restaurant.

Very Good

“Fabulous holiday”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2020

We spent a lovely week at Trevethan, in Rock. Perfect location as a comfortable walk to the beach, where you can walk along the sand to Daymer Bay if the tide is out, or along the coastal path. It's a wonderful walk and the scenery is beautiful. It's also only a short drive to Polzeath, which we went to every day. The house itself is very nice. A quiet location, comfortable beds and great that there are two ensuites and a separate bathroom. Plenty of space for the five of us. Would definitely recommend this property.
