History

Sumerdaes is very much a family home which we bought over 18 years ago.   Having spent my childhood holidays with my grandparents on the other side of the Camel Estuary I grew to love the area and became involved with the sailing in Rock.   We have been fortunate enough to be able to introduce our four children to the same sort of relaxed but active environment and now we are being joined by our five grandchildren as well which is wonderful.  There is so much to do in the area for all ages from grubbing in rock pools at Daymer Bay, surfing at Polzeath, serious golf at St. Enodoc to say nothing of the sailing in the Rock estuary which has been a favourite with all our family who have had a great social life through the Rock Sailing and Water Ski Club.  Rock is well worth visiting in the winter time when the place is really quiet and the weather is usually a little warmer than home.  This is the time when you can explore the beautiful county of Cornwall away from the crowds, perhaps taking in the nearby Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Helligan, and Lanhydrock House or further afield to the Tate Gallery at St. Ives,  St. Mawes or the Helford River.
