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.

Tilgang for gjester

The entire property is accessible to guests, although a few cupboards containing the owner's personal possessions are locked.
The two storage containers hidden behind trees in the garden are not accessible by guests.
The old outside WC has been decommissioned, and guests will prefer not to use this room.

By making an Airbnb booking with us, you agree to comply with the requirements of these documents (to which we will give you the link after reservation, and the terms of which also apply to non-Airbnb bookings). Apart from house rules, these documents include a lot of information about our properties, which we have gone to great lengths to compile. Understanding this information can make a difference to the success of your stay, and also being sure that our property is the one most suitable (or not) for your stay. We give you the opportunity to withdraw, should, having read this lengthy material, you decide that our property is not suitable for your requirements and inform us of this within 3 days of your having made a reservation with us through Airbnb.

This material includes a requirement for host and guest to agree on reviews in advance of publication. This is made to ensure that the reviews are factually correct, which is in the best interests of both guests and host. We quote from a comment made by Airbnb in this respect: "Our community is built on trust, and trust comes from honest conversation. Therefore, we ask for reviews that are truthful, clear, and helpful to both the review’s recipient and the wider Airbnb community." Our policy is designed to ensure that these objectives are met.

Our team members' time is chargeable at £30 per hour (or part hour) incurred in excess of one hour after you have arrived.

If the cost to us is more than £100 per week (pro rata on a daily basis), the excess will be deducted from the security deposit with Airbnb or via payment direct to us. Guests may ask to read meters with us, in the absence of which our staff's readings will be final.

We had a lovely week at St Petroc. This old Cornish cottage was perfect for our needs, it's well equipped, in a great location with a view to die for. 10 minutes walk to the beach and loads of eateries even out of season. The Oyster Catcher (10 mins walk) serves up great meals in the evening and has a laid back and friendly atmosphere, it is also dog friendly. Thank you William for allowing us to take all our dogs on holiday with us and thank you Mary for all the useful information prior to our visit. We will return.

Dear Tracey Thank you for your lovely review, and we are delighted you had a wonderful time. Of course, it would be a pleasure to see you return. For everyone's information, we also list a villa in Lucca and another in Marbella on Airbnb. Villa Macario (San Macario in Piano, Lucca) and Villa del Gato (El Rosario, Marbella). Both sleep 10+. If you can't find them, make an enquiry for this property and we will show you how to find the others. And, Tracey, we'd be delighted also to host you at one of these, if ever you would like to go there as well - and we welcome dogs at these as well. The food and views (on both of which we major) are at least as good there, too. All best William

Thank you, Ruby and we look forward to hosting your return visit: we would be delighted to have you. Glad you liked the location, because, much though we would like to take our house everywhere that we go, we can't move it from where it is! BEst William

The house is as it described - it is a bit ramshackle and run down and is definitely not suitable if you want 5 start or maybe even 3 star, but it is in a brilliant location and has everything you need for a self catering stay. It's only suitable if you are not too hung up on things being 'perfect'. We'd go back so despite it being far from perfect that says it all. Oh and the views from the living room & garden are just amazing.

St Petroc is at the top of the hill above Polzeath and had wonderful views across the Camel Estuary to Stepper Point. There are great walks from the doorstep down to the coastal path. We were warm and comfortable with the night storage heaters and plug-in fan heaters. If you are a larger party (we were 8) be warned that there is only one functioning bathroom with an electric shower. Kitchen small but well equipped. Lovely garden leaping with rabbits.

Dear Emma Thanks for your review and please do come again. As we mention in our material, the second bath is not normally used for much more than washing wetsuits. I am not sure many would agree with you about the kitchen being small, but I guess you are referring to its inner section, where the cooker and sink are; the outer section is three times its size with a breakfast table, fridge freezer, dresser, dishwasher, breakfast table, etc, as per the photos in our material. The rabbits have told me to give you 5 stars for everything: they say thanks for coming and please do come back. All best. William

A wonderful venue for a weekend away with friends. The house was clean and spacious, with excellent views of the ocean, and Mary, the caretaker, could not have been more helpful. We made full use of the BBQ in the evening and spent our day walking to Rock along the beach. Would highly recommend and would hope to return.

We had a lovely stay at this special seaside property. Communication was easy with the hosts, expectations are exceptionally clear in a comprehensive guest packet, the space itself is beautiful, and the value is great! All of our expectations were met and exceeded. Many thanks to William and Mary for making our stay so pleasant. I would highly recommend this space for folks who prefer to avoid the price-ta and pomp of a luxury hotel, and would be charmed by a well-aged and simple guest house that has a lot of character.

A property full of character that matches the host's frank description. It's an absolute gem, nestled above the coastal path between the surfing mecca of Polzeath and calmer waters of Daymer Bay, with both shops and rugged nature located close by. The location is the key attribute here, whether you're sat indoors observing the rabbits running around on the lawn, enjoying the sea breeze in the garden, or down the track on the cliffs watching the waves crash against the rocks. Hosts are communicative and there's a sense of personality in the rather extensive guidelines/instructions for guests. The faint-hearted may prefer summer months as the house has no central heating, although it's perfectly possible to keep warm throughout the year as the host explains.

Thanks, Giles, for your kiind and beautifully-composed words. Yes, we would like to think we do have a bit of personality - it is reflected not just in the comprehensive material we send to guests in advance of their stay, but also in the house itself. We do make a point in our ad of trying to put off those for whom a winter stay would not be appropriate, although, as you say, it is possible to keep the house warm with our extensive collection of convection heaters, which add to the storage heaters which are on all year round. But for now, it's summer and the rabbits know it's time to expect their garden to be 'borrowed' by our guests! All best William
