Rocklings is a delightful detached holiday house peacefully tucked away at the end of a quiet private lane. Only a short stroll to all the Rock shops, cafes and restaurants, Rocklings is perfectly suited to a large family, sleeping 6 guests in 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. Ideally situated to take advantage of all the joys of the wonderful Camel estuary and within striking distance of North Cornwall's best surf beaches, golf courses and stunning coastal paths. A wander down through the fields will find you on the peaceful, unspoilt cove of Porthilly, perfect for bird watching and paddling, while children will love to dam the little stream that flows down to the sea.
The interior will appeal to nautical types with its sea blues and themed bathrooms. Homely touches such as the charming patchwork quilts on the beds all contrive to make you feel quite at home. The pretty main bedroom has a king sized bed and the two further ones are twin bedded. The well-designed lounge/dining room flows towards a balcony, with elevated countryside views. After nipping up to the newsagents and Rock bakery for croissants you could spread the papers out and enjoy some peace and quiet on the balcony. Sunbathing and alfresco meals can also be enjoyed on the sheltered decking area.
For rainy days, the owners have provided games, books and DVD's to entertain you while you relax on the comfy stripy sofas, and buckets and spades, body-boards, picnic set and windbreak for sunny ones, so you might have to hustle the troops to actually leave Rocklings and explore the surrounding areas. Surfers will want to drive the couple of miles around to Polzeath to indulge in the surf village lifestyle and brave the rolling waves. Sailors can walk round to the Sailing club or ski school at Rock and have a go at any of the water sports available there. Children and adults alike will all appreciate the ferry ride over to the fishing port of Padstow and the chance to browse some different shops, cafes and art galleries and sample a pasty, some local fudge or a pint in one of the numerous pubs to be found there. (Rocklings was formerly named Joncatoria)
