  • "Great Property - lovely space for us to enjoy our holiday."

    Everyone had their own bathrooms and the downstairs showers were great when coming back from the beach. Fab location with plenty of places to eat, nearby beach, and ferry to Padstow so plenty of options. The house had everything we needed and was really well equipped except we couldn't find any scissors! Thank you - We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "A lovely home in a great location."

    Because of the discount we received it offered great value for money. Plenty of positives- good size, great location, well equipped, good outdoor space. The property would benefit from a little TLC- mould on master bedroom balcony, weeds on patio. The shower room downstairs was out of service, which was difficult for us as we had an elderly family member that would have benefitted from not having to climb the stairs to wash. TV reception was poor and the TV in the kitchen/dining area did not get a signal. No hairdryer in any bedroom.

    Thank you for your feedback, our maintenance team will look into the issues raised. We hope to welcome you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Flaad house is a lovely large house in a great location."

    It has a large, well equipped kitchen and a large outdoor space. The bedrooms were of a high standard and the top floor master bedroom was wonderful. The property is let down by the cleanliness of the property. We arrived to find areas of the property not vacuumed and the surfaces dusty and the banisters dirty. The veranda on the top floor could not be used as the tiles and seating were covered in moss. It is such a shame that the maintenance of the house has let down a beautiful property.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by these issues with cleanliness. Your comments have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays and to the owner. We hope you still managed to enjoy your visit despite these issues and would love to welcome you back to North Cornwall in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

  • "We loved Flaad House and we had a brilliant family holiday there."

    The house exceeded our expectations being very spacious, wonderfully well equipped and in a great location, only a short walk to the beach. There is also plenty of parking space. We really appreciated the welcome pack of goodies that was awaiting us on arrival and the things the owner had kindly left for our use such as body boards, deck chairs, crabbing bucket etc. The house really did tick all our boxes and we will definitely be back.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Flaad House We do hope that we get the opportunity to welcome you back to Cornwall in the future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

    Why is Sykes no longer operating the ‘invitation to return’ policy operated by John Bray?

  • "The house was perfect for us and we really enjoyed our stay there."

    The house was in a very good location, just a short stroll down to the Mariners Pub and St Enodoc golf course. The house was very clean and tidy and there was plenty of car parking space for our cars. I would definitely book Flaad House again.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are really pleased the house was so perfect for you and that you had such an enjoyable stay. We would love to welcome you back to Cornwall in the very near future. John Bray on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Not cleaned properly."

    Cushions not plumped up at all from previous occupants. Dirty hob and filthy splash back. Hard beds. Ants. Dirty floor downstairs. BUT very clean upstairs with lovely bedding apart from mattress and pillows. Lovely upper bedroom. The shower in the family bathroom kept falling on peoples heads. We did enjoy our holiday but I think Flaad House is a bit tired and certainly could do with different cleaners. We did appreciate the welcome pack on our arrival though. Thank you

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay! We're very sorry that you had to experience these issues during your stay, your comments were passed onto the housekeeping and maintenance team at the time. We now employee different cleaners at this property now. We hope to invite you back to North Cornwall very soon. John Bray on behalf of the owners. Property Owner

The property

Flaad House is a large, attractive, self-catering home, within walking distance to Rock and Porthilly beaches, designed with coastal living in mind.

Sleeping ten guests, over five generously-sized bedrooms, Flaad House offers an ideal base for a family or group getaway to the Cornish coastline.

Offering plenty of space to store all your surfing equipment and beach paraphernalia, after a day out on the Camel Estuary and exploring the area, you can relax in style at Flaad House.

Decorated in an elegant manner, with comfort at its forefront and a tasteful nod to its seaside location, from when you first walk in you can wind down and embrace the coastal ambience.

The entrance hallway leads to a separate sitting room, with a feature woodburning stove, and an abundance of magazines to give you a great excuse to curl up on the sofas and switch off from the world.

In fine weather, throw open the patio doors and allow the fresh air to floor the space, opening out onto the terrace and back garden.

Just across the hallway takes you into the expansive, incredibly well-equipped kitchen, with a large island which makes preparing family feasts a dream, and a couple of bar stools at the end of this island, meaning cooking can be a social affair.

This light and airy room leads around to the dining area, inviting everyone to join for large spreads.

With the bifold doors folded back, this space again opens out onto the terrace; perfect for bringing the outdoors in and entertaining when the sun is shining.

Spilling outside, the large back garden allows everyone to socialise outdoors, perhaps partaking in a tempting tipple on the plush garden sofa while watching the little ones of the party enjoy the lawn area.

When all worn out after plenty of time in the garden and from the beach, everyone can retreat to their own bedrooms; the master is the showstopper of the house, on the second floor it offers privacy and luxury with its own private balcony which overlooks the Camel estuary - sit out in the evening and reflect on the day as you gaze out towards the sunset.

On the first floor, there is a king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a double bedroom, and smaller bedroom with a further double bed.

On the ground floor, there is a good-sized twin bedroom, with a door to the shower room.

When needing to refresh, this luxurious downstairs shower room features four cubicles alongside each other for maximum convenience, but there is also a family bathroom upstairs.

In a superb location to spend your days on and near the water, Flaad House is a short walk from Rock and Porthilly beaches.

On your walk down, you conveniently pass the Mariners Pub where Paul Ainsworth’s team will look after you while you indulge in their delicious fare.

Just opposite is Rock Sailing Club and further down, Camel Ski School; both offering watersports enthusiasts the opportunity to get out on the estuary.

Just after the little shops, two restaurants and ever popular Blue Tomato Cafe; at the bottom of Rock, you can find the slipway where the passenger ferry can sail you over to Padstow for a touch of retail therapy as you explore the historic harbour town.

If you wish to take the car and venture north from Flaad House, you can wriggle around the coastline and take in the picturesque of Daymer Bay and watch the windsurfers here, with the ancient St. Enodoc Church nestled just above in the middle of the eponymous St. Enodoc Golf Course.

Enjoy all of this with a stay at Flaad House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Padstow 1.5 miles via ferry; Polzeath 2.8 miles; Wadebridge 6.2 miles.

Rock is a desirable and much sought after coastal village located on the north eastern bank of the River Camel opposite the famous harbour town of Padstow which is easily reached by a regular ferry service. The summer home of royalty and celebrities offering top class restaurants and quality shops, the real draw is the array of watersports including sailing, water skiing, windsurfing and angling. Continuing on a sporting theme, the golf course at nearby St Enodoc is considered to be one of the best in the country. With an abundance of world class beaches all within a short radius it is easy to see why Rock holds its popularity.
