“Delightful cottage in a great location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The cottage was a great size for the five us. Clean and beautifully presented. Garden very private and enclosed for our dog. Beds very comfortable and just a short walk to the shops, deli, butchers and bakery. Pleasant 20minute walk down to Rock ferry over to Padstow. Enjoyed coffee and cake at The Blue Tomato cafe and a fabulous meal at No 1 Rock Road. The owner was very kind and made the booking process easy with some lovely personal touches. All in all a fabulous short break and we would definitely stay again.

“Tranquility base for a lovely holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This is our second stay at Little Thrift. First time was April 2012 and since then an extra bedroom and en suite has been added. This is the perfect accommodation for family and friends with ample bedroom and living space.

Convenience stores, shops and a good Chippy are 2 mintes walk away. You can park in the car park at the beach and get the ferry over to Padstow for great shopping, restaurants, bars and cafe's.

Sunday morning we walked along the beach and round the headland to Polzeth and stopped for coffee and toast at the Tubestation café on the hill just up from the beach.

All in all a great cottage in a great location for a holiday that can be as tranquil of busy as you please. We are returning again in a few months and are already discussing next year.

“Exactly as we'd hoped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Little Thrift is everything that other reviewers have commented. Well appointed, nicely furnished, good location. The best bits for us were a sunny, enclosed garden, comfortable living space and a well-stocked kitchen. Clearly finished with a lot of care and attention. Three bedrooms - two doubles (one with en suite) and a twin single - all were very comfortable too (great beds!). The location was perfect too - just round the corner from a good chippy, as well as a very nice bakery and deli. You could also walk to the ferry dock at Rock beach. Porthilly Cove was within easy reach too. We'd be very happy to return.

“Nice Bungalow, nice location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We booked a week at Little Thrift based on the excellent reviews on this website and we were not disappointed. Lovely bungalow and in an excellent location. Very close to all the shops including a well stocked Spa shop, fish and chip shop and excellent bakery (never eaten so many Cornish pasties in one week in my life). Didn't make use of the fresh fish shop or the butcher simply because we didn't need to. There was a handy newsagent and Post Office a further 10 minute walk away - though I tended to use the car. Suffice to say Rock is the complete opposite of Blackpool; really lovely beaches to walk along that stretched for miles at low tide. Our grandchildren loved the garden at Little Thrift and the beach at Daymer Bay. Very pleasant easy walk behind the beach thro the sand dunes and via the golf course to a pretty liitle church (St Enodoch). The Eden Project well worth a visit if you haven't been there before; we also spent a day via the ferry in Padstow and enjoyed excellent fish and chips at Rick Stein's cafe but Padstow was absolutely heaving with people, never been in such a crowded little harbour and I've travelled far and wide. All in all highly recommended, all you need is a bit of decent weather and we were fairly lucky in that respect.

“Beautifully put together with TLC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Little Thrift, The house is so warm, welcoming and homely with every last detail catered for. We travelled with my partially disabled mother in law and found this to be the perfect accomodation for her as she could access all rooms with out our help. The garden is well kept and fully enclosed. The kitchen very well equipped. the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and made up with freshly laundered sheets and towels.
Just around the corner is an amazing bakery, fish and chip shop and general store. Very peaceful and relaxing.

“Lovely property”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Really enjoyed our weeks stay at Little Thrift with our 4 and 1 year old plus dog. The property is very well equipped with lovely decor and furnishings. The layout of the bungalow was perfect for us with young children and the bedrooms are separate from the living room for peaceful evenings! Great fully enclosed sun trap garden and the back of the property gets the afternoon sun. Although in Rock it feels tucked away with the bakery, spar, butchers and fishmongers just round the corner. In fact we have re booked for next year.

“Beautiful Bungalow in Rock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I travelled with my husband, son and Mom with 3 dogs. The bungalow itself is roomy, fresh, modern and extremely comfortable. The distance to the beach is about 20 minutes walk or 2 mins in the car. We normally stay in Wales so this was a new location for us and we were not disappointed. Rock is dog friendly, even have menus for dogs in the restaurants. This is what England should be about, taking well behaved dogs in restaurants etc not health and safety gone mad!
The beach and coastal walks are second to none.....always plenty to do with young families, elderly too!
Locally there are fish and chips, Spar,Deli ......to be honest your couldn't wish for a better place
