  • "Lovely property, location was perfect for us as family live in nearby Delabole."

    Everything was to a high standard only thing we struggled with was the oven not getting to temperature but got there in the end with the help of Google. Loved it so much we booked for next year before we left.

  • "Things that have stopped me giving 5 stars Busy road with fast moving traffic and unable to walk from door No upstairs ensuite and Kings size bed seemed to be 2 twins pushed together with individual bedding (inaccurate listing?"

    ) Cleaners arrived 30mins early on day of departure and were quite forceful that we had the checkout time wrong, thankfully could show them confirmation (apparently happened the week before, so they had checked with 'the office' the previous day - either given incorrect info or trying to rush people, owners confirmed 10am checkout)

    Sorry not to have responded sooner. August is a busy time for the road outside sorry that you found you couldn’t walk from the house to coastal path. We know it well and feel probably more comfortable than you to walk on this busy road. With regard to the bed situation we found there was more demand to have beds that were single and pushed together to accommodate different parties of people staying. The cleaners were wrong with their timings not sure how that got mixed up. Apologise. Property Owner

  • "A really lovely house, extremely well appointed and equipped."

    Super bedrooms, with lots of space to relax. Only slight negative was the outdoor furniture and in view of the lovely weather we had we could have done with a parasol for the patio and a couple of loungers would have been useful. Other than that we had a lovely time and would highly recommend a stay!!

    Sorry for the late response to your comments. Will make sure there is a parasol and some outside loungers for next year. Thanks for the feed back it’s always helpful. Property Owner

    There were issues but these were swiftly dealt with by the owner, which is all you can ask and was appreciated.

The property

Perched on the outskirts of the quaint village of St. Minver in Cornwall, is this attractive, detached property, Alpha.

Set over two floors, this contemporary home is a superb base for families or friends looking to come together and access the glorious Cornish coast, with easy access to the beaches of Rock and Polzeath.

Park up on the spacious driveway with off-road parking for three cars before unloading your bags and stepping into Alpha to start your holiday.

Upon entering the property, you will find a handy porch, ideal for popping off your boots and coats before getting to know your new home from home.

The open-plan living space is sure to be social hub of the property, offering a well-appointed kitchen where the designated chef can impress with a hearty dish, while the rest of the group prepare the dining table with crockery and cutlery.

Curl up beside the woodburner and find a favourite movie on the Smart TV or head to the study where you can enjoy a bit of peace and quiet with a good book.

As you while away the hours, consider getting ready for bed in one of the four neatly presented bedrooms; on the ground-floor there is a beautiful king-size and twin with en-suite shower room, while upstairs offers the master with king-size, en-suite shower and private access to a terrace balcony, plus there’s a family room with 4 single beds, perfect for the little ones.

If you’re not ready for the evening to end, step outside and enjoy a moment in the garden, boasting a spacious lawn for family games and plenty of space for the pooches to run about.

If you fancy a night away from the kitchen, just half a mile away is The Hive Polzeath, a much-loved restaurant with a scrumptious burger selection!

Alternatively, if cooking is your happy place, visit the well-stocked convenience stores in Rock and Polzeath to stock up on ingredients that will leave your guests wanting more.

Beach days are a must while holidaying at Alpha; pack-up your swimming trunks, towels and bucket and spades and head to Polzeath Beach, perfect for paddling in the shores, surfing or simply lounging on the sands.

For more days out, Port Isaac should be on your watch-list, boasting a welcoming village charm and active fishing scene, plus you can even see the filming locations of the popular TV series, Doc Martin.

Alpha is a spectacular escape for making memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
