About Andrew & Louise Windeler

I was introduced to Rock as a 6 week old baby and have been coming to the area since for my summer holidays. My wife and I have 2 children (young adults now) and they too have enjoyed the fun and enjoyment of the area. As a family we have enjoyed a keen association with the water - from Water sports at Rock to surfing at Polzeath and feel very much at home in North Cornwall - despite living 250 miles away.

Andrew & Louise Windeler purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Andrew & Louise Windeler chose Saint Minver Highlands

My family associations with Rock and the surrounding area started in the 1950s when my Grandparents bought a holiday cottage there and subsequently retired to Porthilly in the early 1970's. My parents have continued to live locally since and my family will continue to visit the area for many years - we couldn't bear to stop coming!

We decided it was time to have a home of our own here too - so here it is - Millstream. We have worked hard to restore it and it is now a lovely comfortable cottage that we hope you will enjoy too.

It is rural but is also within easy reach of beautiful scenery, beaches, villages and towns.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a brilliant week at Millstream cottage, perfect for the 3 of us, like a home from home. If there was a comments book we would've highly rated it as it was just perfect"

"I'm so pleased that I found your cottage on the Internet. It is beautiful! We had a lovely stay there"

"We had a lovely relaxing time at your Millstream cottage. It is in a perfect location with it's own privacy, which we always try to look for. Everything we needed for our stay was provided for and we found the cottage very comfortable"

"We had a lovely break in your beautiful cottage. The setting is fantastic - we love the area, having stayed there previously, but your place takes some beating."

There is a small stream running adjacent to the garden which is a lovely feature and peaceful to listen to. The lawn and patio are fenced in and safe for children. We have added a shed to the garden which is large enough for bikes and to store surfboards and other beach equipment and wetsuits. Patio furniture is provided as is a barbecue and a washing line. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bed linen & towels not included so please bring your own. Alternatively bed linen hire from a local company is available by arrangement - please ask for details. Our cottage is checked and fully cleaned prior to every let.

A bit dated. Crockery not of a standard expected.Shower "mat" dirty and dangerous [stubbed toes].

  • 4 of 5

Loved the area, but a bit too isolated for us. Just too far to walk from cottage to pub etc. along busy narrow roads. Beautiful little coastal villages. Very impressed with Rock and it's facilities.Lots of interesting places to visit within easy driving distances.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely holiday at Millstream which is ideally placed. Great for visiting all the pretty villages this part of Cornwall has to offer. The cottage equipped with everything you should want and is very comfortable. Nice to sit in the garden in the early evening before eating in one of the many local pubs which offer good food.

We will definitely be revisiting the next time we are in the area. Many thanks to Andrew and Louise

Rock, Porthilly, Daymer Bay and Polzeth are a 3 to 4 mile drive away so offer a good choice. Rock/Porthilly is famous for sailing and water sports and the ferry goes from here to Padstow. Daymer Bay is a large beach with safe swimming and sand dunes. Polzeath has many rock pools (some large enough to swim in at low tide) is fun for surfers and has a lively feel with shops and cafés.


The use of a car is recommended in order to access the area fully. The nearest railway station is Bodmin Parkway about 15 miles away. Newquay airport is about 20 miles away.

Further Details:

St Minver is well placed for easy access to local shops in Rock and Polzeath and the larger town of Wadebridge is 10 minutes away by car. Here there are is a wider variety of shops, supermarkets and banks. The area is very well served for restaurants - Rick Stein has several in Padstow - we particularly enjoy The Waterfront and Café India in Polzeath, St Kew Inn and No 1 in Rock. Of course there are many others too numerous to mention. The ferry runs from Rock to Padstow all year and in the evening a water taxi is available to Padstow restaurants. Fishing and pleasure trips are run from the harbour. The Camel Trail (the old railway line) is fun for cyclists. It runs alongside the estuary from Padstow to Wadebridge and on to Bodmin and bikes can be hired locally. The quaint coastal village of Port Isaac (location for Doc Martin) is about 15 mins away by car. There are lots of things to do in the area - for example the Eden Project, Falmouth Maritime Museum and the legends of King Arthur at Tintagel.
