About Wendy Head
We are Mark, Wendy & Ellie and we live on Dartmoor in Devon with our hens, ducks and cats. We owned holiday cottages in a nearby village for 12 years, then took a break to bring up our daughter. We had the opportunity to purchase property in Rock, Cornwall which have been successful as holiday rentals. We have now converted the barn which was the site of the original Manor House before it burnt down. It has a 'home from home' feel which is important so you can relax and enjoy your holiday. We have added things we have collected over the years to make it feel homely for our guests. If you wish to plan a two centre holiday we aim to provide short breaks at both location except in high season. We are nearby if needed but Cowshed has a private garden giving full seclusion for relaxation.
Wendy Head purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Wendy Head chose Cornwall
We had the opportunity to purchase Bryher which gives us the flexibility to use it ourselves when Hollyhocks is booked and to make it available to larger groups as it is so close. It provides an excellent base for smaller families or couples seeking a romantic break, for those who like us, love the sandy beaches, lovely walks and Padstow's foodie establishments and shops.
What makes this Apartment unique
Bryher is situated near to good local shops, deli, butcher, bakery, Spar, Fish & Chips and boutiques. It is situated within walking distance of sandy beaches, Camel Sailing & Waterski school, and stunning coastal walks. Boat trips from Padstow and Coasteering for more adventurous days. Porthilly beach is 15 minute walk, Rock, 20/30 minutes. There is kite/windsurfing at Daymer Bay 1.5 miles by car, by foot at low tide. Surfing lessons at Polzeath, 2 miles, Coastguard patrolled, very shallow for a long way for children with rock pools, more boutiques and cafes, restaurants. We are happy to offer short breaks in low and mid seasons, please enquire.

We had a great time.
The unit was good, clean and with gooc facilities.
A very comfortable few days
Lovely flat with lovely comfortable furnishings.
Everything one needed in the flat & everything in good working order...also very clean.
.And though there were seemingly others staying in other apartments in the house the sound-proofing meant that it was hardly noticable.
We had a lovely few days at the flat!
Chic apartment in pleasant central location
Spacious 2nd floor apartment located on Rock Rd, convenient for walking, beaches and crossing to Padstow by ferry. The apartment is beautifully decorated and furnished and has a very well equipped kitchen which doesn't assume you only eat out or get pizzas! The nearby shops are very good too and walking distance. We had a very pleasant stay here.
Wonderful clean property. Everything you could wish for to make for a great holiday. Would have liked to stay longer but unfortunately had booked an apartment further down Cornwall. If we ever are in the area would definitely rebook.
Thank you Barbara, I am pleased you had a great holiday. Bryher is a handy base for all that North Cornwall offers, it is near to amenities, beaches and walks and yet is quiet and peaceful for relaxing times too. Please do visit again, there is more to see and do!
Excellent self catering accommodation but with good range of eateries in area
Second to none for comfort and convenience
Lovely apartment and very reasonable for the area. We were fortunate enough to have incredible weather too, so overall, splendid.
