|Rock is situated on the North Cornwall coast and is famous in high season for itʼs reputation as the ʻKensington of Cornwallʼ. Itʼs a great place for celebrity spotting in summer, but Rock offers a lot more than that throughout the year -

• Polzeath, Fistral, Watergatebay and many other great surfing beaches within easy reach
• A number of great restaurants, shops and galleries
• An independent Deli, Butcher, Fishmonger and Baker (all within walking distance of your home) and even itʼs own award winning Real Ale Brewery.
The subject of many great artistʼs work and an inspiration to the poet John Betjeman the surrounding headlands and cliffs provide a healthy dose of fresh sea air and will persuade you to leave behind the hustle and bustle of modern life for a restful world of winding country lanes, fields, woodlands and wild coastal walks.
The Camel Trail, a world class nature trail and paradise for birdwatchers starts just across the river at Padstow, a 10 minute ferry ride away, and winds itʼs way inland up the river to Wadebridge and beyond.
Padstow is a working fishing port and a thriving summer holiday destination but it’s during December that Padstow is at its most magical, providing seasonal treats including Christmas lights and decorations, Santa’s grotto, fireworks, seasonal food, and festive demonstrations. You can go late night shopping and have supper in one of the excellent seafood restaurants. If you miss the last ferry there is a water taxi to bring you home across the river.
The surrounding area has masses of opportunities for inspirational and
educational days out and most of Cornwall is within an hour by car -
here are a selection.
