Surrounded by landscaped gardens and with a fully enclosed play area just a hop, skip and a jump away, there's plenty to keep children entertained.

To the left you can open the bi-folding glass door out to a private decked terrace to let in a cool breeze during hotter months.

Rock View commands a fabulous position overlooking the Camel estuary across to Rock. There's plenty to do in this fantastic area - Old Town Cove lies at the bottom of the lane which leads on to the Camel Trail where cyclists and walkers enjoy the fantastic scenery along the estuary. In approximately 45 minutes you can walk into Padstow, loved by such chefs as Rick Stein, Nathan Outlaw and Paul Ainsworth and is perfect for a bite to eat, or hop on the boat and pop over to Rock, frequented by the likes of Prince Harry and his pals for even more culinary choices and maybe a trip to Sharp's, Rock's very own brewery.
The house stands on the edge of a small hamlet found along a quiet farm lane leading down to the Camel Estuary and in the other direction to the village of St. Issey and two public houses. The Camel Trail, just down the lane follows the route of the old railway line - it's a two mile meander to Padstow or three miles to Wadebridge. The Camel Estuary, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a lovely spot and full of pathways to explore by foot or by bike (which you can hire at Padstow) alongside the water or through the stunning dunes. The Sir John Betjeman Walk is particularly beautiful, or just take to The Camel Trail. If water is more your thing, there's a plethora of watersports or if you'd like to try your hand at fishing, there's fishing trips to be booked from Ferry point at Rock where you can catch mackerel, bass and even shark. Beach-wise, you're spoilt for choice with seven located around the Padstow area and one across the way at Rock. If you've brough your golf clubs, there's St Endodoc and Trevose nearby too.
