Traditional meets modern at this elegantly presented, terraced stone cottage next to the road through pretty Little Petherick, a quiet hamlet just two miles outside of Padstow.
Refurbished to exacting standards, Rock Cottage is full of charm and character, cheerfully decorated to get you in the holiday mood.
Its elevated position above the road allows 180 degree views of the surrounding countryside, best enjoyed from the sunroom to the front of the property.
On the ground floor is a lovely sitting room with ornate fireplace, tasteful soft furnishings and lots of pretty knick knacks to make you feel right at home – as well as an immaculate kitchen/diner complete with everything you could possibly need.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all finished with a delightfully nautical theme, and two with televisions and DVD players.
The glossy family bathroom is accessed via the bunk bedroom.
Designed with families in mind, the cottage also has lots of little extras to make your stay that bit more comfortable (and lighten your luggage a little); children’s books and games, a toddler bed guard, stair gate and a booster seat are all provided for your stay.
Rock Cottage offers its guests two gardens; a lawned garden to the front and a sheltered courtyard to the rear – the latter the ideal spot for a summer barbecue, with a fire pit and garden furniture.
If you prefer to dine out, though, within a mile of the cottage is a lovely seventeenth century inn - The Ring o’ Bells - which has a pretty courtyard garden and an excellent restaurant.
This part of the world is also known for its coastline, and the seven wonderful, golden beaches of Padstow are all within a short drive.
Padstow itself is just a couple of miles away, with its excellent (and celebrity) eateries, harbour side shops and the traffic-free Camel Cycle Trail along the picturesque estuary into Wadebridge.
