  • "Hi The cottage and little garden were lovely and nicely situated for Rock, Port Isaac and Polzeath."

    Unfortunately although we waited to access the property at 4.30pm, still due to ‘deeper cleaning’ covid measures, on arrival we found although the upstairs was clean and beds changed etc, the downstairs was not, bins outside still full of stinking (due to the heat) rubbish from the previous week and kitchen was not clean complete with a full dishwasher of dirty crockery. We’ve never encountered this before and we’re surprised. The local office did call on Saturday and I did report this, they were apologetic and pleasant and said they would feed it back to the housekeepers. The dishwasher etc and kitchen, internal bin etc were easily rectified with a quick clean by myself but sadly the outside bins directly outside the back door were a different matter. They are old style dustbins and although we double bagged the rubbish, flies gathered in the hot weather and we couldn’t leave the back door open at all. It’s a shame because the little back garden was lovely with beautiful flowers. If these things could be sorted it is a great little cottage, with nice decor and on street parking easily found all week.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we are so sorry that the cleaning standards were not up to our usual high standards for you and that the outside bins had not been collected. We have contacted the waste disposal company regarding this. We hope we can welcome you back in the future - John Bray Cornish Holidays On Behalf Of The Owner. Property Owner

  • "The access and leaving times are unreasonable, 4."

    30pm entry on first day and 9am on leaving day brought in for covid reasons should now be changed back to pre covid. Otherwise the cottage was brilliant Thank you

The property

A delightful, charming cottage in the peaceful village of St. Minver with beautifully styled interiors that create a calm and comforting feeling, situated just up the quiet lane from the enchanting 12th-century Church.

Stokes Cottage offers an idyllic combination as the character of the original cottage has been retained, but thoughtfully updated with tasteful, contemporary furnishings and modern facilities, that complement the original features.

From the moment you step into the sitting room, you can relax into your Cornish holiday by kicking off your shoes and sinking into the sofa to recharge after your journey.

In the winter months, enjoy this perfect refuge to while away the hours by curling up with a book in the snug armchair in front of a roaring open fire after a bracing coastal walk!

Following through into the brand-new kitchen you have all the cooking facilities you need, whether it's to prepare you for the day ahead with a full English breakfast or coming back to a rustle up a hearty family dinner.

After a heavenly day at the beach you can retreat to your Cornish bolthole and enjoy a well-deserved glass of wine in the sheltered courtyard, finished with its attractive slate patio and surrounding planting.

Upstairs, the characterful master bedroom is graced with natural light flooding in through the sash windows while the bright, airy twin bedroom offers extra adults or children their own cosy space to escape and rest peacefully.

The new, modern bathroom provides a stand alone shower and the ultimate convenience of modern facilities to freshen up in. Within the village of St. Minver, you can potter up the lane to the Fourways pub and refuel with a hearty meal, or venture over to the the local beach at Rock, renowned for its sandy shores out to the Camel Estuary.

Here you can hone your skills on the water with Camel Ski School's experiences in water-skiing and sailing or for the more laid back lifestyle, soak up the atmosphere in any of the many local pubs, cafes and restaurants.

From Rock you can continue on and explore the coastline with a picturesque walk along the South West Coastal Path around Brea Hill (or up and over for those with a bucketful of energy!) to the spectacular Daymer Bay, Greenaway and Polzeath.

A charming hideaway in a great location for enjoying the Cornish coast.
