  • "Great location to explore N."

    Cornwall coast, well equipped, clean and comfortable. However, we were disappointed there was no basic welcome pack on arrival after a long drive. The oven was difficult to operate, despite following the instructions in the folder and the manual. TV was rather small with poor quality picture. Could benefit from a light on the patio, for sitting out in the evenings.

    Thank you for taking the time to review our property and we’re pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay in Cornwall. We’re sorry you found the oven tricky - we’ll definitely look to re-word the instructions in the folder for future users. Property Owner

  • "Lovely neat neat little cottage that served our purposes perfectly."

    Only because it has been so carefully maintained would I like to mention these few suggestions.1) we never found any wooden spoons/cooking utensils. 2) the saucepans, hiding in a very concealed drawer under the oven were not obvious either and I had to call the company to find them. 3) the decking and fencing in the garden area, while very practical, could be made more attractive, a few colourful flowers, hydrangeas or something, would make all the difference. Equally, if the rear fence was lowered to afford more of a view, I think it would be an improvement. But overall a wonderful find and I would certainly consider a repeat stay.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Shrimper's Cottage and appreciate your comments. I am sorry that you did not find the wooden spoons and the saucepans, in Brand we had the information regarding the items' whereabouts to put into the property but we neglected to do this. We are very sorry that you could not locate them. This information is now in the property to point guests in the right direction for these items. 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

  • "Second year at Shrimpers Cottage and it was as good as the first time, will definitely try and book this property again when we decide on our next Cornwall holiday."

    The location is convenient for either walking or driving to the various beaches and attractions in the area and the facilities in the property are excellent with a high level of cleanliness and comfort. One observation, the street lighting makes the bedrooms very bright so blackout blinds or curtains would make for a better nights sleep.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back anytime in the future! We will pass your recommendations onto the owner. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Think the owner would like to know that the extractor fan wasn’t working in the bathroom."

    Also a mirror in the main bedroom to dry your hair at would be good but just used the one in my daughters bedroom . But this is very, very minor comment. Cottage was great, excellent facilities, everything you could ask for and need. Welcome pack was lovely. Very clean and comfortable.

    Thank you for the positive feedback &we do appreciate you letting us know about the extractor fan. It was working for us during Feb half term but must now need fixing - so we’ll get that sorted. Property Owner

  • "A great, well kept, comfortable cottage in an excellent location."

    We had a wonderful stay at explored Rock, Port Isaac, Polzeath, Padstow, Newquay amongst others during our stay. All very accessible. An excellent base to explore Cornwall. The only slight panic we had was in locating the key box in the front , which might be a challenge for those arriving in the dark or with a slight knee issue. Otherwise, a great little place to enjoy Cornwall.

    We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage & are grateful for the feedback. We looked to relocate the lock box, but having stayed at the property you’ll appreciate that there are limited options for a discreet location. Property Owner

  • "Nice welcome basket, but main bedroom pretty tiny, so hard to get around the bed given door placement, and mattress getting a bit lumpy."

    also bit dusty/dirty in places. our main gripe is we left an electrical item behind, and contacted them same day we left to try to arrange its prompt return. very limited follow-up and information given. after chasing them 3 times was finally told 13 days later the item wasnt found. we csnt be the first people to leave items behind. poor service which leaves a bit of a sour taste

    We’re glad you enjoyed the welcome basket at our cottage but sorry to read that the cleaners didn’t find the electrical item that you left. We completely appreciate your frustration & thank you for your time to provide feedback. Property Owner

    Had everything needed for a self catering holiday. Quiet area so pleasant stay. Nice local pub to eat in. Would recommend. We did find the key safe low for us and struggled to get to it but apart from that everything was perfect for are needs.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage in really excellent location."

    Very clean and well presented. Really lovely outdoor space which we enjoyed when our young son napped in the afternoons. Only negative was TV signal was very poor- only able to get 1 channel- didn’t cause us too much of an issue though as weather was good and we were out a lot. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and are sorry to hear you’ve not had much luck with the TV. I know that the remote has to be aimed directly at the TV to change the channels (so a bit sensitive) but there are definitely the basic channels - alongside the option of Netflix. Property Owner

    The location is perfect for walks, cycling and driving. Cycle trail to Polzeath is close by and we enjoyed the Rock Bakery! Parking is compact but great to have safe parking off road at the front of the property.

    Really appreciated the Smart TV and wifi as well cooking facilities. Lovely shower too! Our only problem, being pensioners, was the outside key safe being so very low to the ground (we had problems bending down to it! :) But, overall 10 out of 10 for this lovely property

The property

St Minver 0.9 miles.

Settled on a peaceful cul-de-sac in the village of Tredrizzick, just a short drive away from Rock Beach, is this three-bedroom property, Shrimper's Cottage.

Enjoying a blend of country and coast, this Cornish cottage is ideal for a family of four seeking a self-catered stay.

Park up on the driveaway or in the garage before entering your holiday home; discover the sitting room with a plush sofa to unwind on as the Smart TV does the entertaining.

Stepping through the home, locate the contemporary kitchen/diner, with pale grey cupboards and housing an electric oven and hob; when meals are served gather around the dining table to tuck-in.

When the sun is shining, head out into the terrace garden, beautifully presented with mature tropical plants, where you can unwind on the decked area with a glass of wine as you savour the setting.

As day draws to night, retreat inside, and climb upstairs for a hot shower in the shower room before choosing between a king-size bedroom, a single and a small single.

In the morning, get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a scenic car journey to Rock Beach for a long sandy beach, where you can relax with a book or take a swim in the clear water or if that's not for you, tee up at the hilly St Enodoc Golf Club.

Visit the small village of Polzeath for excellent surfing conditions and a surf school to get your dream board or venture to Padstow for quirky shops and a selection of restaurants.

The fishing village of Port Isaac is also worth visiting, where you can soak in the culture at the Cliffside Gallery, experience fresh seafood with a view and hideaway in the quaint cove of Port Gaverne Beach.

For long-lasting memories with your loved ones, choose Shrimper's Cottage.

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