Traditional British seaside holiday house, shabby and run down, but full of character, with spacious garden and stunning Atlantic views, in sought-after location. Self catering for 6-11; 2 baths; wi-fi. Golf, surf, cliff walks, sailing, waterskiing, fishing, gourmet Padstow.

The Camel Estuary on Cornwall's rugged and romantic Atlantic north coast is one of England’s most desirable, yet understated, up-market hideaways - for everyone, not just for the two princes, prime ministers (all regular visitors), etc.. Whether it is cliff-top hikes, fishing, surfing, sailing, visiting historic houses (Lanhydrock, etc), the Tate Gallery at St Ives, the Eden Project or just savouring the seafood and other tastes of Padstow (gourmet capital of the UK, made famous by TV chef Rick Stein) or Nathan Outlaw in Rock, King Arthur’s Castle (Knights of the Round Table legend) and lots more, there’s something here for you too. And there’s classic British links golf: within 10 minutes drive is St Enodoc, recently rated no 35 in the world outside the US. Indeed, the Atlantic coast is home to several other renowned links: (URL HIDDEN) tells all...

St Petroc sleeps 7-9 in a typical 1920s English seaside holiday house. It has a lot of charm, but is also run down and one often can sense the damp, especially out of summer. The description 'run down' also means that some parts of the house do not look clean, despite the fact that they have been cleaned: they are just showing their age!! If you are looking for a modern villa (and/or not a sense of adventure), this is not the place for you. But nearly everyone who stays there (in some cases, once over the initial reaction to the foregoing!) doesn't want to leave.

This house has been in our family for over 60 years: despite the 'run-down' label we have done some careful updating of the facilities, including a new bathroom and new storage heaters. We have also upgraded some of the furniture, and added broadband wi-fi and two flat screen TVs.

So why do we get more repeat tenants at this property than at any of our other properties? Perhaps you should come and see for yourself...

Not recommended for the elderly, pregnant nor families with young children. Highly recommended for weather-beaten surfers, golfers, sailors and cliff-walkers and, out of the peak summer season, groups seeking a bit more of a roof over their heads compared to tents at the local camp-site for not much more.

The whole house is accessible to guests, excepting a few cupboards for owners' possessions. We decommissioned the old external-access WC many years ago, having converted one bedroom into a second bathroom. We have also closed up the front door, enabling us to use the porch for storage, and the property is entered through the kitchen door; both doors access the main parking area, so this doesn't cause any particular inconvenience. The yellow bathroom is normally used for washing wetsuits and there is no pressure on the shower attachment; the owner still uses the bathtub, but most guests prefer to use the one in the second bathroom.

Our caretaker lives close by and is available to assist guests. In addition, our administrator is available on the phone. As is normal for Cornish holiday lets, we do not supply linen and towels. If guests require these, we can supply them by special arrangement.

The corner of our garden is the highest point between surfashionable Polzeath and desirable Trebetherick, 5 minutes from Rock and St Enodoc, and a short ferry ride from gourmet Padstow.

There is little in the way of public transport, so guests are advised to come by car.

The house is in a run-down and shabby state (incl. not all wallpaper in its original place!), so if you are looking for an up-market villa, this is not the right place for you. Having said this, it has an olde-worlde charm that most of our guests love. Those who 'get' it, keep returning year after year. If this description is not your cup of tea, please don't reserve this property - we can recommend alternatives.

A large space for six adults, amazing views, short walk to Polzeath beach with cafe shops etc. Beautiful walk to Rock and ferry ride to Padstow. The cottage is well stocked with all you could need, Netflix on the telly box. The cottage is rustic with it's own charm.

Thanks, Martina and please do come again. The only thing I would say is that I don't understand Netflix and (from other comments made to us privately) it seems to have appeared recently on our TV, which is great. However, we like to be up front, so we don't promise that it will stay for ever, because we have made no arrangements with Netflix (well, unless it comes as a package with something else we have bought, and haven't realised this!). This perhaps reveals that we don't watch TV when we are in Cornwall - there are too many other lovely things to do there! All best. William

St Petroc is in a superb location.There is a path to the cliff top and then a fairly short walk to Polzeath beach.The view from the house is lovely and plenty of room in the garden for children to run around. Don't be put off by the undeniably shabby exterior and very dated inter…

This is a unique, authentic and clearly loved family holiday home in (probably) the best location in the West Country. The views from the house and from the (large) garden are breathtaking. If you enjoy surfing, then 10 minutes along the coast path takes you to Polzeath. For f…

Dear Anya Thanks for your kind words. Readers should be aware that when Anya said she was staying during the coldest week of the year, she was aiming at serious understatement.
