154 | Carn Du 1

Rock - Sleeps 8 in
4 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms


With spectacular views from its elevated position overlooking the Camel estuary, Carn Du 1 offers a fantastic combination between comfort in seaside living and convenience in location. Just a few steps away from Rock beach, Carn Du 1 is a south-facing semi-detached property and a superb ‘holiday home-from-home’ where you can leave your car for the week and put your feet up, whether its relaxing inside together or soaking up the rays in the garden, enjoying watching the sailboats out on the estuary.

The open-plan kitchen diner and lounge area is the hub of the house where everyone can socialise and catch up together after the day’s excitements. Slide open the floor to ceiling doors to the sun terrace and enclosed garden where you (and your canine companions!) can while away the hours looking out and watching your family playing in the garden. Dogs are welcome by arrangement and are permitted on Rock beach and Daymer Bay all year round, both heavenly stretches of sand for dogs to socialise and charge about. On your return from your frolics of the day, there is a useful utility and shower room just off the entrance to pile your sandy clothes into and refresh with a lovely hot shower. 

Carn Du 1 offers four restful bedrooms in which to revive yourselves before the adventures of the next day. The front master king size bedroom affords a wonderful view of the Camel estuary and garden, with direct access onto the front patio. In addition to the family bathroom, three of the bedrooms have an ensuite which gives the comfort of having your own bathroom and making it an ideal home when visiting with friends to give everyone their own privacy. All the bathrooms are newly renovated and offer stylish, modern facilities; an important feature when you are so close to the beach!

A holiday in Rock is the perfect chance to get acquainted with this beautiful part of North Cornwall coast or return for more explorations. Down the lane or via the beach you can access the South West Coastal Path for bracing walks at any time of year and if you climb Brea Hill on your way to Daymer Bay you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the estuary from the top. For the keen golfers, you can pack your clubs as Carn Du 1 sits in front of the renowned St. Enodoc Golf course, one of the most spectacular courses in the country with outstanding views of the water and the historic St. Enodoc Church. After all this fresh air, why not let the local chefs take the pressure off you and enjoy the restaurants nearby at the end of Rock or trot up the lane to The Mariners public house where Paul Ainsworth’s team offer a tempting menu.

A few minutes drive up the coast, the cliffs of Pentire Point and the Rumps, managed by the National Trust, are within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; for a longer hike follow the coastal path from Rock or for a stroll, park closer at Pentire Farm. The views of the coastline, ocean and cliffs are truly unbeatable, whilst the waters of the Camel Estuary provide a natural playground for sailors, water skiers, paddle-boarders and canoeists. Further down river at Daymer Bay and Polzeath, fantastic surfing, swimming and paddling awaits.
