The property

Boskewys is a historic three-bedroom cottage located in St Minver, Cornwall, close to the charming coastal community of Rock. Boskewys is an excellent base for a family or group of friends wishing to explore this beautiful area of Cornwall. It has an enclosed garden with a summer house, a mid-sized garage parking space, a well-equipped kitchen, and is near to the shore and local services. After unloading your belongings, enter your new home away from home, and curl up in the squashy sofa in the comfortable sitting area with a book or log into your own Netflix account on the large Smart TV to catch up on all your favourite shows or a movie after a long day. Allow your significant other to prepare a delicious dish in the well-equipped, traditional-style kitchen before enjoying a meal and a glass of wine in the light-drenched conservatory while taking in the lovely views of the elevated, lawned yard. You can use the outside furniture to lounge in the garden or if the rainshowers come, children can dive into the summerhouse to watch a DVD and have some personal space. Here, you'll also find a useful shower room, the washing machine and a small capacity tumble dryer. Once inside the cottage again, retire to the first floor to refresh in the modern shower room before choosing a super-king-size, twin, or bunk bedroom to relax in. Start your day's activities at Rock Beach in the morning for a wander along the sands, taking in the stunning views of the Camel Estuary. Here, you can saunter around to Brea Hill and Daymer Bay at low tide or simple build sandcastles and paddle in the water. For the action-seekers of your group, engage in a variety of watersports at Camel Ski School such as paddleboarding and water skiing while Rock Sailing School offers sailing courses in the season. Around the coastline-corner (a longer walk around the coast path or 5 minutes by car), the surfing beach of Polzeath gives great opportunity to jump into the waves or stop for some delectable meal at Surfside, the Waterfront, the Cracking Crab restaurants or Oystercatcher pub. From the beach you can also hike to Pentire Point, perfect for the nature aficionados among you and having far-reaching views of the stunning coastline. No doubt that the extra shower in the garage at Boskewys is a useful spot for refreshing after a day on the beach! For a day in a harbour town, take the foot-ferry across from Rock beach to visit Padstow where you can shop in the local stores, learn about the town at the Padstow Museum, visit the National Lobster Hatchery or book onto Padstow Sealife Safaris - Wildlife Watching Boat Trips for a unique view of the estuary. Further north from Boskewys, take your car to find Tintagel to explore the National Trust site of Glebe Cliff, Tintagel Castle, St. Nectan's Waterfall, and a wide variety of pubs, shops, and restaurants. Take your loved ones to Cornwall to take in all the sights of the north coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


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.
