Rock - Sleeps 10 in
5 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms


Speedwell is a large, semi-detached 3-storey holiday house in Rock, adjoining the St Enodoc golf course on the North Cornwall coast. From its elevated position, it affords far-reaching views sweeping across the Camel estuary to Padstow. This spacious property has a lawned garden and useful sunbathing patio, along with the fabulously indulgent attraction of an outdoor 6m x 4m heated swimming pool. Speedwell can sleep up to 10 guests in 5 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms, creating a lovely space for groups of friends or extended family. Only 150 yards from the beach at Rock, Speedwell is an idyllic spot at the very heart of the Camel estuary.

The ground floor has a smart, bright kitchen/dining room with everything you need to inspire home cooking using fresh local produce. Large bi-folding patio doors can be pushed open to invite the outside in, affording leisurely meals outdoors when the weather is fine. There is also a double room with en-suite bathroom on the ground floor along with a separate lounge with picture windows. On the first floor are two twin bedrooms, a bunk room and a king size bedroom with sea views and an en-suite bathroom. The property also has a large basement with a store room for all your boating, surfing or golfing kit, a larder, laundry and further shower room. From here there is a door leading out to the swimming pool. Sunny days can drift by with lazy lunches spent pool-side with children playing and adults dozing in the delightful south-facing lawned garden.

Backing onto the dramatic St Enodoc golf course, Speedwell is perfectly situated to access all the footpaths which can take you down towards Daymer Bay and on towards the rolling surf of Polzeath. A s
hort stroll down the hill to Rock beach where you could lose hours just watching the estuary's wildlife and human activity. The ferry trip to the bustling working harbour of Padstow is a must for browsing shops and art galleries, then staying late to dine in one of the numerous restaurants, pubs or cafes. From your vantage point at Speedwell you can see the wonderful old railway line on the opposite shore where you can hire bikes and cycle along the Camel trail linking Padstow to Wadebridge.
