Rock Cottages

Across the estuary from the famed Padstow, there are lots of lovely holiday cottages in Rock waiting to be enjoyed. Located on the banks of the River Camel, the sandy stretch along the river is a beautiful holiday setting, with views across the water and plenty of activities to enjoy.

Rock is considered to be a high-quality holiday destination with a higher percentage of millionaires living here than anywhere else in Cornwall. The shops tend to reflect this, and the town is home to one of only two Michelin Starred restaurants in Cornwall, The Black Pig. Rock is a truly special place to spend your holiday in Cornwall.

Being a waterfront town, there are lots of activities accordingly, but the main draw is that the water is unusually calm and clear. The sheltered location makes it ideal for small craft so sailing and boat charters are big business. All forms of watersports abound with skiing, windsurfing, canoeing and rowing to angling and fishing trips - but no surfing!

If you prefer to stay on land, the Rock Sand Dunes that border the beach are listed as an Area of Specific Scientific Interest thanks to the local vegetation and geology. The walks along them are picturesque and interesting, leading to St Enodoc Church (the resting place of Sir John Betjemen) with views out to Doom Bar, and carrying on as far round as Daymer Bay - a family friendly wide sandy beach.

If you ever get bored of how the other half live, watching stunning sunsets in the mild climate of this area, you can pop over to Padstow > on the foot ferry for the day - water taxis also operate if you want to stay out a little later. Otherwise, stay in one of our Rock cottages at the end of June and enjoy the Rock Oyster Festival, ‘a mid-summer celebration of food, music and art'.
