About the property

Cottage in St Minver, Nr. Rock & Polzeath in Cornwall - Rural Country Setting But Minutes Away From The Coast

Fully updated comfortable and cosy, self catering holiday cottage. Conveniently situated at Treglyn Farm near to St Minver, Rock, Polzeath and Padstow, with easy access to all of the popular tourist destinations and attractions in Cornwall.

The cottage is set in large, well kept communal gardens with plenty of space, as well as a private garden to enjoy the evening sun.

Why Karla Sloggett chose Saint Minver Highlands

We love Cornwall, especially the North coast. After visiting different parts of Cornwall for our own family holidays we fell in love with this area and have returned for many years. We bought the cottage in January 2017 and are delighted we can share it with you.

It is situated close to fabulous beaches such as Polzeath, Rock and Daymer Bay which offers everything from surfing, sailing, coasteering, walking, dog friendly beaches etc. A few miles from the now famous Port Isaac, a ferry ride away to Padstow, a couple of miles to Wadebridge (which offers the camel trail and bike riding) and only a short drive to Newquay. There so much to do and see in this part of Cornwall we never tire of visiting and are sure you will love it too!

What makes this cottage unique

Glen Valley Cottage has been equipped to cater for family holidays and we're delighted we can share it with you. It is one of 10 cottages with large communal lawns, as well as a private garden to enjoy the evening sun.

For those of you with children who want to enjoy some outdoor play at the end of a day, it's a safe environment which is totally visible from your cottage. Or you may wish to have a barbecue in the cottage garden.

It's very quiet and tranquil setting, well away from the main roads. Perfect to relax after a busy day at the beach or walking some of the fantastic footpaths or stunning coastal walks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Glen Valley Cottage is a really nice cottage, really comfortable and we have enjoyed our stay. Everything looks lovely and new and it was so clean. We liked the fact that it was not a fussy cottage but modern, simple and tastefully furnished "



"The Cottage has a 'home-from-home' feel about it. It was very comfortable and exceeded all our expectations, we would recommend it to anyone"



"You have a beautiful, well stocked, clean and beautifully furnished cottage in a beautiful location. We were looking forward to a really relaxing holiday and can't think of anything or anywhere that could have filled the bill better"

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

This much improved holiday cottage is situated in an ideal spot for exploring North Cornwall. This was our second stay here, but the first with the new owners, who’ve done a lovely job with their upgrade. It’s well equipped, clean and comfortable with all the lovely touches you’d hope for in a seaside cottage. The coastline is stunning with so many beautiful walks. If you’re lucky with the sunshine, morning high tide at Trebarwith Strand is breathtaking, whereas the morning low tide at Bedruthan Steps is fantastic for exploring and photographic opportunities. Apart from an initial small climb there is a lovely flat walk from Trebarwith to Tintagel where you can explore the castle and enjoy lunch in one of the many pubs or cafes. A tougher walk from Port Quinn to Port Issac is well worth doing and we can recommend Chapel Cafe for breakfast or lunch, before your return, either along the coastal path or on the shorter inland walk. Lastly, take the ferry from Rock and walk round the headland where you can enjoy a cream tea on your return, served from the back window of a cottage, where you can sit in their garden and enjoy the views across the estuary. All in all the cottage and the area, are the idyllic place to base your stay.

Lovely quiet cottage outside Rock

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this quiet well kept cottage just outside Rock, very clean and and welcoming with all the equipment you would need for a holiday. Bed was comfortable and each room made up well, Most of our days were spent out visiting towns and attractions and then evenings in with a glass of wine. Only down side for us was the shower although hot not very powerful.

Owner's Response: I’m glad you enjoyed the cottage, thank you for your kind comments. The shower is a new electric one and to improve the experience we have replaced the shower head which should produce more pressure. We do hope you will come and stay at Glen Valley Cottage again.

Comfortable and well equipped cottage in good location.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the open plan design of cottage, heating system adequate for winter weather, beds comfortable and kitchen well equipped for eating in.

Location was good midway between coast for walks and Wadebridge for shopping.

Low light pollution outside cottage so enjoyed viewing the night sky.

Girls commented that plug socket locations in bedrooms didn't allow use of hair dryer close enough to mirror.

Padstow is 12 miles away by car, but it's more fun to take the estuary ferry across from Rock, Padstow is an unspoiled small fishing town, the home of famous TV chef Rick Stein, his Seafood Restaurant is well worth a visit.
