About the neighbourhood
Rock is on the North Cornwall coast, on the east side of the River Camel, whose estuary offers surfing at Polzeath and golf, sailing, water-skiing at Rock. More serious shopping is available at Wadebridge, 4 miles away at the head of the estuary, and more serious eating at Padstow, across the estuary, where the Rick Stein establishments offer all varieties of food especially if you like great fish.
The beach, quay, golf and sailing clubs are about a mile away down the 'main' road to the Quarry carpark. From here you can access miles of flat sandy beaches and the sand-dunes. There are numerous footpaths both along the coast, which is largely Duchy of Cornwall and National Trust land, and inland across farm land.
Rock is a small but very popular village, especially during the school holiday period. It can be hard to park during the summer months as the car parks fill-up quickly - start early if you intend to get a parking space near the beach.
Otherwise everything that you need (post office, deli, bakery, fish & chips, Spar, doctors surgery) is within walking distance with the beach about 1 mile walk down the road.
The ferry runs all year round (timetable varies) to take you from Rock to Padstow. It also takes bikes if you want a longer cycle route.
There are bus links to most local towns and villages.
