Adjacent to Padstow, this affluent stretch of coast offers a little piece of paradise, with crystal clear waters, golden sandy beaches and a celebration of fresh, local food.

Visitors to the village can spend their days on the glorious Daymer Bay, relaxing on the silky soft sand and swimming in the turquoise waters. For the more adventurous, water sports are a big part of the community at Rock, guests can try their hand at a range of water sports on offer.
