  • "We left a day early due to illness of a family member at home."

    We did inform your office of our early departure. However a number of flies/Bluebottle's appeared the day before we left. They were quite prolific on the evening before our departure, seemingly coming from the loft at the top of the landing. During our journey home we contacted the office again to inform them of the problem. We also let them know about a problem with the wheely bin (no wheels). I must say however that the property in itself was fine and the response from John Bray staff was very good. I would be happy to re-book the property again.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are sorry to hear you had to depart early, and that you encountered some maintenance issues. Thank you for making us aware of these, the flies are a seasonal and locational issue but we will look into some fly traps. We will also look to replace the bin. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our break at Puffin cottage."

    We stay here every year, and look forward to our holidays there. The property is a stone throw away from Padstow and we look forward to coming back from our days out as the property is very spacious and warm. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The beach is a stone throw away and plenty of walking trails to keep you busy. Puffin cottage has a beautiful garden where we relax and barbecue in the evenings. Everything at Puffin cottage was well thought through lovingly. I’m so looking forward to going back. Thank you so much.

    Thank you so much for this lovely feedback - we are so pleased you enjoy staying at Puffin Cottage as much as we do and hope you are able to come back to enjoy North Cornwall again soon! Property Owner

  • "A great property."

    Really well laid out, plenty of space and the facilities were premium not basic. We loved the garden and the fact that the conservatory faced the sunset each evening. A well located property too. It was clean with plenty of parking.

  • "We had an enjoyable stay, the property is well located for Pityme inn which serves great food and a short walk to the shops in the centre of Rock."

    The property is tired, in need of some refurbishment and there were a number of cobwebs all around the property. The carpets could also do with a deep clean. During our stay the washing machine broke, but John Brays were very quick at arranging a replacement. The super fast broadband at the property is excellent as is the smart TV with Netflix, iPlayer all built in.

    "We are pleased you had an enjoyable stay. Cleaning standards have been reviewed with John Bray's caretaking team and we feel the website images accurately portray the property's style and facilities" Property Owner

  • "Puffin cottage is well located for the shops, pub, restaurant and trips out."

    It is comfortable and provides pretty much all you need for a self catering break. It is a shame that linen and towels are not provided, this is the first place we have been where they are not although it was made clear in the cottage description before we booked. Cleaning was ok but could be improved, there were crumbs under the toaster, dust and bits under the microwave and cobwebs on several of the windows. We would visit again but only after checking out alternatives.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay. We have passed on your comments regarding cleanliness to our housekeeping team. We would love to welcome you back to north Cornwall soon! - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

The property

Puffin Cottage is an attractive semi-detached, self – catering property in a quiet location in Rock village.

The accommodation is comfortable and furnished to a high standard with room to sleep six-seven guests in three bedrooms with two bathrooms.

A bright, sunny conservatory with French windows looks out onto a South-West facing sun terrace and enclosed, gated garden with lovely rural and sunset views, along with ample parking.

The nautical inspired main bedroom has a king size bed with an en-suite shower room, another bedroom offers twin beds, with a double bed in the third bedroom.

There is a modern well-equipped kitchen, which is open plan to include the dining area and a separate sitting room, which benefits from an open fire to curl up in front of on Winter evenings.

Rock is an exciting holiday destination with so many activities to enjoy from the fantastic beaches, rambling along the coast or rural footpaths, and golfing to testing your nerve on the high seas, while surfing, water skiing or sailing.

A short drive down to Rock's sailing scene and the beauty of the Camel estuary can fill your days, be it on the water or watching family from the comfort of one of the many restaurants or cafes nearby.

Wadebridge is worth a visit, the gateway to the wonderful Camel trail that runs along 18 miles of Cornish country and riverside.

Padstow is a short hop across the estuary by passenger ferry and Polzeath and Port Isaac are also close by.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Padstow 1.5 miles via ferry; Polzeath 2.8 miles; Wadebridge 6.2 miles.

Rock is a desirable and much sought after coastal village located on the north eastern bank of the River Camel opposite the famous harbour town of Padstow which is easily reached by a regular ferry service. The summer home of royalty and celebrities offering top class restaurants and quality shops, the real draw is the array of watersports including sailing, water skiing, windsurfing and angling. Continuing on a sporting theme, the golf course at nearby St Enodoc is considered to be one of the best in the country. With an abundance of world class beaches all within a short radius it is easy to see why Rock holds its popularity.
