Cottage, St Minver, Nr. Rock, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location Only A Few Minutes By Car To Polzeath Or Rock
Mr Anthony Hall
About Mr Anthony Hall
We have been coming to North Cornwall for the past 14 years and have spent many a happy time with our family in and around the Rock/Polzeath Area. We have a dog called Poppy who loves to come with us and enjoy the lovely long cliff top and beach walks. We all enjoy sailing and surfing so this is an ideal location for us all. We originally started off making sandcastles on the beach with our young family and friends. Now they have grown up, they bring their friends and still enjoy all the that the area has to offer.
Mr Anthony Hall purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Mr Anthony Hall chose Saint Minver
After having many a happy time in this area we decided we wanted to have a permanent place to come to. It is a short drive to all the activities we enjoy and there is also the ruggedness and natural wildness that Cornwall is known for. We like that you can be with people if you want to be or find a quiet peaceful place if you don't.
What makes this Cottage unique
For us it is that you have sailing, surfing, shops, beaches all within 4 miles of the property. We also like that we have a large communal area for children to play in while parents can relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine on the seating provided or watch from inside the cottages knowing they are safe.

Everything was great. We’d stay here again. Only thing missing was a potato peeler. Many thanks
Fabulous holiday cottage
The cottage is in a great location and in easy reach of lots lovely places. We have stayed in this area before and were keen to return. This property did not disappoint. Our children loved the outdoor space.
We would definitely return to this cottage again.

Cosy accommodation in great location
The contact from the owner (Anthony) before arrival was superb. He provided details on best route, travel time, local beaches, tide times etc. Couldn’t have asked for more.
The cottage is in a great location, so close to Rock and Polzeath yet nicely tucked away. It contains everything you could want or need. The back garden is particularly good for a quiet and private drink in the sun at the end of the day. If mixing with the neighbours is your preference, however, the big open space out front is ideal. Shower good, beds comfortable, living area cosy.
Minor detail but the area with the dog bed smells of er, well... dog. If you’re a dog owner you probably won’t notice but we’re not. Anthony makes it plain, no dogs upstairs or on the furniture. Well done 👍
Ultimately the test of any holiday accommodation is - would you come back?
.. and Thanks to Anthony 👏
Thank you for staying with us and being excellent guests. We would love to have you back so please bear us in mind the next time you wish to stay in the area.

Cosy cottage , fantastic location and dog friendly too
Very cosy cottage and great location for rock , polzeath and padstow. Great space for our dog too who loved his first holiday .
Lovely, well equipped house in a great setting.
We had a great week, the perfect base to explore as much, or as little, of Cornwall as you would like to. Fantastic beach only a couple of miles away in Rock.
The house is really well equipped to a high standard with everything we needed.
Thank you for taking the time for writing a review. We are pleased to hear you had a great time and look forward to seeing you again if you chose to revisit this beautiful part of the country.
