Rock

 

Rock Holidays

Said to be named after a local quarry, Rock is a village on the North side of the banks of the River Camel looking across to Padstow. 

Things to do in Rock

Watersports 

The sheltered Daymer Bay is the perfect spot to try your hand at some new watersports. There's lots to choose from including sailing, windsurfing, waterskiing and canoeing, or head around the headland and try surfing at Polzeath.

Walking

The coastal path around Rock provides a great way to appreciate the Cornish Coast, with large sandy bays, the banks of the River Camel and the rugged cliffs around Polzeath theres lots of variation to explore. 

Ferry

The Black Tor ferry runs a daily service between Rock and Padstow. It only takes about 5 minutes and is a great way to see Rock and the Camel Estuary.

Golf

Said to be one of the best gold Courses in the country, St Enodoc is located just outside Rock and demands views across the estuary.

Filming Locations

Rock and the surrounding area have been a popular filming location, as well as spotting the frequent celebrity or even a member of the royal family! 

Port Issac

Most famous for Doc Martin, this series is frequently being filmed in the village and the neighbouring Port Quinn. Wandering around the village you are sure to recognise some of the locations and maybe even some of the locals.
