Rock, self-catering holiday cottages, barns, rural retreats and lodges to rent in Cornwall, England
The village of Rock stands alongside the Camel River Estuary, over the water from the pretty harbour town of Padstow. The population of Rock is mainly concerned with sailing. There are numerous boats and yachts anchored in the river and the place is a alive with boats moving in all directions on weekends. Apart from a clutch of essential shops and restaurants including the Michelin starred ‘Black Pig’ and the St. Enodoc golf club, Rock does not have much to offer holidaymakers without a boat. Stroll along Rock Road (where it is sometimes possible to find a free parking space) to see how the wealthy live. It is said that about a third of all the luxury cottages, houses and apartments in Rock are holiday homes and there are some beautiful buildings to admire. The view across the Camel of Padstow and along the river is stunning. Enjoy browsing for self catering cottages in and near Rock in Cornwall.
What Rock offers for Self-Catering Breaks
Daymer Bay lies nearer the mouth of the estuary and has a mile of stunning sandy beach which varies in depth with the tides. At times the sand is reduced to a narrow strip.
The village of Polzeath a little further round the coast is a different story. Whereas Rock is dedicated to sailing, Polzeath is all about surfing and affordable to all strands of society. We trust that you have found our information on Rock helpful and hope you find appropriate self-catering accommodation in or near Rock for your holiday.
Book a Rock cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Cornwall on holiday.
