    “It’s a fantastic property in a great location and very suitable for large families.”

    Well equipped and I would give 4.5 as the only mark down are lack of washing powder, coffee pods and a pint of milk which I feel at these prices you could expect

About the location

Rock is a desirable and much sought after coastal village located on the north eastern bank of the River Camel opposite the famous harbour town of Padstow which is easily reached by a regular ferry service. The summer home of royalty and celebrities offering top class restaurants and quality shops, the real draw is the array of watersports including sailing, water skiing, windsurfing and angling. Continuing on a sporting theme, the golf course at nearby St Enodoc is considered to be one of the best in the country. With an abundance of world class beaches all within a short radius it is easy to see why Rock holds its popularity.
