Willow Cottage is a charming; traditional, semi-detached stone built cottage in the tiny village of Tredrizzick. It truly is a hidden gem, being tucked away in a quiet and peaceful location and yet within a few minutes drive of the beaches at Rock, Polzeath and Daymer Bay. It sleeps 5 comfortably in 3 bedrooms: one double, one twin and one with bunk beds, or 6 if two are children. The bunk beds are full adult size but the room is small and the ceiling is low so two adults would be a bit of a squash. It has a good size, cosy sitting room with a wood burner, TV and wifi; a dining area leading off the recently refurbished kitchen and a lovely garden with outside seating and a brand new barbecue.
Up to two well behaved dogs may be accepted (but please check first) and there are extensive walks over farmland leading from a footpath just beyond the cottage. From here you can walk across the fields to Daymer Bay, passing St Enodoc's church on your way. The village square where you can park your car is at the bottom of the garden.
Please note that we ask guests to pay for their electricity usage which EDF currently charge at 18.15p per unit. Also linen and towels are not included but can be provided at an extra cost.
Rock is renowned as one of the major water sport centres in Cornwall offering sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, canoeing and rowing. Daymer Bay has recently been voted one of the best beaches in the world and with its beautiful golden sand, rock pools and calm waters is ideal for small children and also popular with windsurfers. At low tide you can walk along a vast expanse of sandy beach from Rock to Daymer Bay (dog friendly all year round) or if the tide is in you can walk along the cliff path through the sand dunes and the famous St Enedoc's golf course past the tiny 13th century church of St Enodoc where Sir John Betjeman is buried. Polzeath beach is acclaimed as one of the best surfing beaches in the country. It is bordered by rock pools and with its huge expanse of sand is very popular with beach enthusiasts of all ages.
There is a very good pub within walking distance of the cottage and there are excellent shops a two minute drive away in Rock. This is a very 'foodie' area and there is a great selection of cafes and restaurants offering everything from simple meals to fine dining in Rock and the surrounding area. There is a ferry which runs regularly between Rock and Padstow where Rick Stein has both his famous restaurant and a cheaper fish and chips one. The Camel Trail which is great for walking and biking starts and ends in Padstow.
Golf is available at St Enodoc, Roserrow (winner of the GolfMark Club of the Year 2015) and Trevose.
The Camel Valley Vineyard whose wines won 3 gold and 9 silver awards in 2015 is a 20 minute drive away at Nantstallon and offers tours and tastings as well as having a shop.
There are some beautiful gardens worth visiting in the area within an easy drive, including Pencarrow, The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
