Where you’ll be

Cornwall, England, United Kingdom

Located in a quiet residential area just off Rock Road but two minutes from the main strip of shops and approx. 1 mile from Rock seafront.

The property is located a 15 minute walk from the infamous St Enedoc Golf course, St Michaels Church at Porthilly, The Methodist Chapel, the Camel Estuary and the long sandy beach at Rock, with wonderful varied sand dunes. St Enedoc chapel and St Minver Church are short drives away.

Overlooking the estuary in Rock are restaurants such as The Mariners Pub with first floor balcony serving delicious food from renowned chef Paul Ainsworth.

The chic contemporary St Enedoc Hotel with outdoor pool and Spa. There you can enjoy delicious local food prepared by their chef James Nathan whilst overlooking the estuary from their dining room and terrace.

St Enedoc Golf Course, the renowned links golf course which stretches between Rock and Daymer Bay also boasts pretty 12th century St Enedoc Chapel, which nestles between fairways at the back of Daymer Bay (the resting place of Sir John Betjeman) is a popular choice for golfers and walkers alike.

The Blue Tomato Café, and The Rock Inn are also popular restaurant choices. Shops such as The Beach House with its Ice Cream & Coffee Bar, Art gallery and White Stuff are there too. There are lovely coastal walks extending from Rock Beach to Daymer Bay and on to Polzeath village and beach. The more adventurous may even venture on to Port Quin, Port Isaac, Port Gaverne and even Trebarwith Strand! www.southwestcoastpath.org.uk is a good place to start for planning any walks you may wish to go on, with downloadable and printable individual walks.

Central to Rock village and conveniently within a 3 minute walk are various local shops which include a bakery, delicatessen, Spa shop, newsagents, Quba Sails clothing and Mooch - a wonderful gift shop.

A wonderful think to do is take the little 10 minute passenger ferry across the Camel estuary to Padstow. Padstow is a busy working harbour, bursting with character, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops of all kinds, and of course is the home of celebrity chef Rick Stein. Bikes can be hired in Padstow which is the start of the Camel trail - an old level bridal path running from Padstow to Wadebridge, it goes on to Wenford Bridge and Bodmin. It is 17.3 miles (27.8km) long.

Camel Ski School is located on the estuary near to the ferry point in Rock (for ferry trips to Padstow). There you will find a delightful waterside coffee shop, a team of enthusiastic water sports teachers and an abundance of water based activities on offer. You can also hire equipment such as wetsuits, paddle boards and Kayaks. Sea tours and coasteering can also be booked for the more adventurous!

A short drive or 20min walk away is The Point with its own Golf course, club house with restaurant, tennis courts, indoor pool, sauna, steam and gym. Also The St Moritz Hotel in nearby in Trebetherick also has an outdoor pool, restaurant, casual bar, gym, indoor pool, and sauna, The Cow Shed is also a well respected destination for their beauty and natural treatment rooms.

Nearby is Polzeath beach which is renowned for surfing. There are several surf hire shops, cafes, restaurants, a Spar supermarket and gift shops.

Further afield there are a wealth of wonderful places to visit, be it culture, dining, walking and more, such as luxury hotels The Scarlett Hotel, Bedruthen Steps Hotel and Watergate Bay. The Eden Project is a 50min drive away on the south coast. There are many beautiful gardens and national trust locations too.

The property is a great location to be based from for many of the Rock wedding venues.
