Rock is a village in North Cornwall located just round the first bend in the
estuary mouth on the North-Eastern bank of the River Camel, adjacent to the
harbour port of Padstow.
The name Rock is thought to have originated from the rock quarry which was
used as a source of ballast for sailing boats that had off loaded their cargo at
Padstow Harbour. The quarry is now a car park. Rock is a very popular
destination for the more affluent tourists and holiday makers.
There are several reasons why tourists are attracted to Rock, from the long fine
sandy beach that, at low tide, continues round Brea Hill to the crescent bay at
Daymer, to the vast range of water sports that are catered for. Not to mention the
five star food and accommodation that can be found at Rock.
Self catering accommodation at Rock in north
Cornwall is ideally suited to those whom wish to
enjoy the delights of the Camel Estuary. All types of
water sports are practised on the River Camel. Water
skiing and Windsurfing prove very popular in
Summer and Winter. The stunning views across the
estuary to Padstow and Padstow Harbour, which is a
working port, and inland to the iron railway bridge
that now forms part of the link between Padstow and
Wadebridge that is the Camel Trail, are worth the
premium. Watching the sun set across the water
creates some of the most spectacular skylines any
where, and it is easy to see why this locale is so highly
prized has a holiday destination. If you are fortunate
enough to find self catering apartments or houses that
overlook the river, you can lose hours just watching
the estuary wild life and Human activity. more...
