  • "The cottage is very comfortable and has been furnished with great thought and style."

    The cleaner had done a first rate job to make the cottage really welcoming. Just a couple of points l would like to mention. The basin is very small in the bathroom , so the kitchen sink was used instead. The rug in the hallway is rather dangerous as it slips . I would carpet the hall . My partner slipped over so we removed it for the duration of our stay. The light in the bathroom which starts the fan off is extremely loud in the room above, the main bedroom. We tended not to put it on at night as it really disturbs sleeping above. Also the pillows are extremely hard. If l am lucky to stay again l would bring my own pillow. These l know are just minor niggles. Many thanks, we had a lovely 10 days, and were very lucky with the weather.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Great location-no pressure for parking spaces at the shops!"

    The very secure front and rear gardens were ideal for our dog, and would be for small children too. The cottage is comfortable, nicely decorated and well equipped, although the previously mentioned microwave could be a useful addition. We were pleased to see the clothes line appear part way through our stay. The downstairs bathroom wouldn't be our ideal, but was manageable.

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and have noted the comments made. We hope to welcome you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "Fab location to visit countless places in the county."

    Comfortable rooms and beautifully dressed, perhaps a small hanging area in one bedroom to front, could be added? Excellent range of kitchenware and both the dishwasher and washer/dryer performed well. We christened the BBQ and ate al fresco often, using the comfy garden furniture. The local grocery shop 100 mtrs Bakery (omg so good) 200 mtrs Butchers 300 mtrs Cafe 500 mtrs What more could you need !! We will be returning for sure! * Couple of points to note, the on line details state a microwave is supplied, there was not one on our stay, this didn’t affect us but needs clarification or installing. There is a rotary washing line behind the oil tank, but we could not locate the ground spike to use it? Thankfully the washer/ dryer came to rescue.

    Thank you for your kind words regarding your stay with us. We are so pleased you had a good holiday. Thank you for pointing out about the microwave, this has now been deleted from the website. We very much look forward to welcoming you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owners Property Owner

The property

This attractive, two-storey cottage lies in a great position in the coastal town of Rock.

Beautifully presented with original features in keeping with age of the property, West Cottage is a great choice for a family seeking some time away from normality.

After a day on the beach, wash away the sand in the bathroom before heading into the kitchen to prepare a hearty meal.

Serve up in the dining room complimented with a bottle of fizz, before following the slate flooring into the lounge, where you can sink into the sofa and enjoy catch-up on the Smart TV.

On those warm days, head outside and bask in the sunshine from the enclosed garden, with a barbecue and set of furniture that welcomes alfresco dining.

The bedrooms lie upstairs and include the master double with Smart TV, whilst there are two single bedrooms to either side of the landing.

Pack up your seaside essentials and head to the golden sands of Polzeath Beach, a heaven for surfers with its consistent, slow break waves, whilst holidaymakers can soak up the sunshine at Rock Beach, before ending the evening with a bite to eat at one of the village’s excellent eateries; why not indulge in a cream tea or Cornish pasty?

Join the impressive South West Coast Path and enjoy scenic views that lead to the coastal towns of Port Isaac, famously used for filming Doc Martin, and Padstow where you can visit the colourful harbour and see the National Lobster Hatchery.

With all this, plus the bustling attractions of Newquay within easy reach, there’s so much to look forward to whilst holidaying at West Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
