Rock is a coastal village set on the banks of the Camel estuary in North Cornwall and sits opposite the picturesque harbour of Padstow. Boats bob along the River Camel and passenger ferries carry visitors and locals across the blue waters. Sailing binds the community and dinghy racing, sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing dominate the cool deep river.

Rock has plenty of holiday cottages, wonderful places to eat out and some peaceful riverside walks making it an ideal destination for a calm relaxing holiday.
