Rocksalt is a stunning 4-bedroomed holiday home just outside Rock on the North Cornwall coast. Built and furnished to a very high standard in 2008, the house is situated in a glorious setting with far-reaching views over the Cornish countryside, yet is only a few minutes drive from Rock, the surfing beach of Polzeath and child-friendly Daymer Bay beach.
The accommodation is light and airy and comprises 4 large bedrooms with 2 en-suites and 1 family bathroom; an open-plan luxury kitchen/lounge/dining area with large comfy sofas, a 50" LCD tv and all mod cons. There is a south-facing garden (which is now fully secure as it is fenced at the front and back) with a weber charcoal bbq and an outside hot and cold surfers' shower.
Not only is the house well-served for numerous beautiful beaches, but within 10 miles there are four excellent golf courses, as well as the quaint fishing village of Port Isaac (location for the TV series Doc Martin); Padstow with its famous Rick Stein restaurants; the Camel cycle trail and slightly further afield, the world renowned Eden Project. This is a perfect location for families, surfers, golfers, foodies and walkers.
