    “A really lovely bungalow.”

    Great location! The toys and bits for the children were an absolute bonus and provided lots of fun (as they weren’t their own!). Linen was soft and comfortable as were all furnishings. Won’t hesitate to book again, we had a wonderful break. If I really had to find a concern, cooking pan lid and handles get extremely hot and could be a worth an update and a deeper floor clean as black dog hairs kept appearing. I’m not fussed on either really but worth noting. Thanks for a lovely stay.

The property

Obo's Retreat is a beautiful single-story home that is perfectly situated close to Rock, Daymer Bay and surrounding beaches; a highly desired area. Obo's Retreat, which accommodates six people for the dreamy coastal getaway, offers off-road parking, is pet-friendly and features ground-floor living that makes it perfect for families or groups of friends looking to enjoy Cornwall's natural splendour. The fabulous open plan living in Obo's Retreat creates a sociable atmosphere which is fantastic for spending time together. The central, airy space benefits from large front window where natural light streams in and combines modern furnishings with comfort and plenty of space for all the family. Be impressed by the well-equipped kitchen containing a fantastic selection of appliances that is guaranteed to thrill any budding chef. Allow yourself to relax while your partner prepares a great meal that you can enjoy as a family at the dining table, toasting to a fantastic trip as you tuck in. After supper, retire to the sumptuous lounge area and turn on the Smart TV to enjoy a movie marathon. After a relaxing bath or refreshing shower in the evening climb into the super-king-size bed while your guests settle into the double and twin-single beds in preparation for yet another exciting day. The super-king and double room enjoy views over the enclosed garden at the back of the house while the light, front twin bedroom provides a calm and welcoming retreat adults or children to share. Any kids and furry companions will love the lawn at the back to let off any steam, if they have any left after your days on the beach! Start your day with a brisk morning walk on Rock Beach's on top of the sand dunes or for the ultimate wake-up routine, dive into the water of the Camel Estuary for a brief swim. At low tide you can stroll across to Daymer Bay where the gradual-gradient sand is perfect beach for little ones to play, or simply soak up the sun while taking in the panoramic vistas from the top of Brea Hill. Refuel at one of the area's many pubs or eateries, such as The Pityme Inn which is just across the lane from Obo's Retreat, The Mariners Public House (run by the fantastic Paul Ainsworth group), or The Rock Inn and then continue up the coast to the surfing village of Polzeath. Travel further north to snorkel at Port Quin or enjoy a cliff top hike and take in the sights at Doc Martin-famed Port Isaac. For your retail therapy, hop across on the foot ferry to Padstow where you can shop the delightful boutique stores and afterwards, indulge in the Rick Stein restaurants, cafe and deli or kick back at Rojano's, Paul's Italian restaurant. On your way back to your coastal home, top up on culture by visiting the local artists such as The Jackson Gallery, Nina Brooke's studio and the pop ups that frequent the Rock Insitute in the village. At Obo's Retreat in Cornwall, all of this and more are waiting.

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

About the location

ROCK

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.
