* As a self-catering holiday home Trevethan is particularly well equipped with a fabulous kitchen area boasting granite worktops, ceramic hob, a fridge-freezer plus additional fridge (plus a drinks fridge elsewhere), a double oven and grill, microwave, and full-size Smeg dishwasher. There is a separate utility room with washer, tumble dryer and drinks chiller. An abundance of pots, pans, cookware, crockery and quality cutlery means not having to wait for the dishwasher to finish washing the last meal's dishes.

* Trevethan has two multi-channel TVs and DVD players as well as radios, an i-pod dock, and a music centre. The vaulted sitting room has a wall-mounted flatscreen TV, comfortable seating for eight, and the large dining table has eight upholstered chairs. A well-stocked cupboard has plenty of board games, DVDs and videos. Beach toys and body boards are stored in the utility room for guests to borrow. A high chair is also kept on site.

* There are front and rear gardens at the property. The sunny southwest facing rear has a lawned area and large stone terrace with teak table and eight teak armchairs. The terrace is a suntrap - great for dining in the evening sun without the wind you get at coastal properties. A barbecue and a wetsuit wash are located in the rear garden as well as a rotary clothes dryer. With the rear garden being enclosed, private and secure, parents can relax while small children play. The sitting room and kitchen overlook the rear garden so it's easy to keep an eye on them. Incidentally, there are no ponds in the gardens and the boiler is sited outside the property so there is no risk from carbon monoxide.

* Trevethan is popular with golfers since the St Enodoc course is nearby; it is also good for sailing enthusiasts attending Rock's sailing and water sports school. Walkers find it a good base, given access nearby to coastal or cross country walks.

* Cyclists and surfers are well served by this area. The Camel cycle Trail starts in Padstow just a short ferry ride away or Wadebridge, five miles away where bikes can be hired; there is wind and kite surfing at Daymer Bay, and excellent board surfing at nearby Polzeath.

*Rock is a good starting point for anyone wanting to tour Cornwall's gardens, children's theme parks, and historic attractions, by car.

* The area has some great restaurants to visit, including a good choice in Rock itself. The 2-Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw has two restaurants in Rock whilst Rick Stein's three restaurants in Padstow are just a short ferry ride away. Rick Stein also has a fish and chip eatery and a pub doing inexpensive meals. There are other pubs that do good food and excellent restaurants in Port Isaac and at St Kew as well.

* There is a freeview wall-mounted TV, a further bedroom TV and VCR and two DVD players.

*Two bedrooms have en suite bathrooms but there is also a large family bathroom including a bath with shower over as well as a separate walk-in shower.

*The kitchen has granite worktops, a full-size, very quiet, Smeg dishwasher, a two-oven electric cooker with ceramic hob and grill and a microwave. It is very well equipped with pans of all sizes, cookware, crockery and quality cutlery.

*Besides the fridge-freezer there is an extra fridge for food. A drinks fridge is provided too.

Location description from owner

The Cornwall region

Rock, located close to the Camel Estuary and the Atlantic coast, is a wonderful unspoiled place. The estuary is bordered by miles of sheltered sandy beach and dunes at Daymer Bay while the beach at Polzeath enjoys Atlantic rollers that are large enough to surf but not so large as to terrify beginners. People have enjoyed coming to Rock for decades.

There is a loyal population of families who return every year to savour its relatively unchanging nature. Apart from the provision of several high quality restaurants in recent years little has changed. Where better to bring young children for a bucket and spade holiday while their older siblings learn to surf and sail.

And if you don't have children, enjoy the beach, the golf, the restaurants, and the freedom to relax. There are numerous places of interest nearby to keep you amused.

Rock

*Rock is close to the historic fishing port of Padstow, well known for the shops and restaurants of TV chef Rick Stein. A constant ferry shuttle takes you from Rock to Padstow in a few minutes.

*Prideaux Place in Padstow is a fine old country house open to the public. Pencarrow is another historic country house in the local area, open to the public.

*Another lovely historic fishing village nearby is Port Isaac where the TV series Doc Martin was filmed. It has some fine old pubs and restaurants and is a good place to buy lobster and crab.

*In nearby Trebetherick, the poet John Betjeman is buried in the grounds of the wonderful old church of St Enodoc. An equally lovely old church is located in Porthilly.

*The Victorian Long Cross gardens are a short drive from Rock. Further afield, but easily manageable in an afternoon trip, areThe Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and other gardens.

*Rock is a golfers' paradise with excellent courses at St Enodoc and Roserrow.
