This enchanted cottage sits in the picture-perfect village of St Minver on the fringes of Rock, where a valley of swaying grass meets the ocean at Polzeath forming a magical holiday backdrop.

Tucked away amidst beautiful Cornish countryside, Mencarrick can be found in the sleepy village of St Minver just a short drive from the beaches at Polzeath and Rock and the market town of Wadebridge.

At Mencarrick you can revel in the tranquillity of the fantastic location, taking in the views across the lush countryside to Polzeath Beach and Pentire Headland.

Those familiar with the area will fully appreciate the multiple benefits of this fantastic location. St Minver is a picture postcard village next to Rock with a beautiful church and The Wild Hop café where you can spend spring and summer afternoons tasting local tipples in their beer garden. Here, you can escape the traffic and general hustle and bustle of Polzeath and Rock. You can come and go with ease. Simply head down the Rock Road, through Tredrizzick, and you will be at the beach in just under 10 minutes by car.

The long sandy beach at Rock combined with the calm waters of the Camel Estuary provides the perfect ingredients for a family beach day. Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element here with everything from sailing and wakesurfing to waterskiing and paddleboarding on offer. Here you can hop on the ferry to Padstow and stroll around the picturesque harbour, and sample some of the area's finest seafood.

Polzeath is also within easy reach. If you enjoy country walks, you can pick up the footpath that leads through the fields and down to the beach. Here you can make the most of the fantastic surf conditions with a bodyboarding session or a lesson with one of the surf schools based on the beach. Hop onto the South West Coast Path and explore the beautiful stretch that winds up to Pentire Head, The Rumps, Lundy Bay and beyond.

It is also an easy drive into the nearest town, Wadebridge. Here you can stock up on your holiday essentials, sample the cafés and restaurants or catch a film at the cinema. You are also easily placed to explore pretty local villages including St Kew, Port Isaac and Port Gaverne. The possibilities are endless...
