Coastal chic meets relaxed holiday living at Sea Gulls, a luxury self catering holiday house located on the Camel Estuary at Porthilly in Rock. Stunning estuary and rural views, enclosed lawned gardens with swimming pool and stylish open plan living spaces combine to create a superbly comfortable holiday experience. Sea Gulls is wonderfully located overlooking Porthilly Cove and offers restful, flexible accommodation for up to 11 guests in total. There are 4 bedrooms in the main house with 3 bathrooms (2 en suite) and the detached Garden Lodge provides accommodation for 2 further guests with separate facilities and great views. The spacious accommodation offers great flexibility for family groups. There is private parking for 1 car, with additional parking for several cars immediately outside at the side of the private access road.
From the moment you step inside you are transported into a contemporary and calm sanctuary, sensitively decorated and furnished to reflect the property's coastal location. Sliding full width patio doors in the open plan living/dining area make the most of the wonderful estuary views. Wander outside into the large enclosed south facing garden to enjoy the stunning sunsets from the terrace with plenty of seating or enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped for 11 guests. Why not enjoy breakfast with a view from the sunny kitchen table or purchase some fresh local oysters or mussels from nearby Porthilly Farm as a treat for dinner? The super king master suite is on the first floor with breath taking views to Padstow and surrounding countryside. The ensuite spacious shower room has a vanity unit and WC. A further twin room and a king size double room with additional single bed complete the upstairs accommodation with a large family bathroom with bath, separate shower, WC and vanity unit. There is a choice of down feather pillows or microfibre for the king and superking bedrooms. Downstairs there is another twin room with ensuite bathroom with bath/shower, vanity unit and WC.
There is no need for your car once you have arrived at Sea Gulls. From here, explore the ancient St Michaels Church or take a stroll up the road for some fine dining at the St Enodoc Hotel. Wander down through Porthilly Cove and cut across the beach at low tide to Rock beach and the sailing club, shops, the Mariners Pub for a light bite, or make a stop in the Rock Inn for your evening meal. A short one mile ramble over the sandy dunes will bring you to Daymer Bay, another beach ideal for bathing or rock pooling with children. Head out further on the coastal path to nearby Polzeath, a blue flag beach and a mecca for surfers and body boarders. Catch the day ferry from Rock over to Padstow to explore this vibrant harbour town or head out in the evening via the water taxi to a sumptuous dinner at Rick Stein's or Paul Ainsworth's. For yet more Michelin starred cuisine, head over to Port Isaac and book into Nathan Outlaws two restaurants.
