  • "Very nice, comfortable house, great views and location."

    While otherwise well equipped and maintained, the utensils and kitchen equipment were poor quality eg microwave with a mechanical timer, plates from Wilko, Sainsburys, no coffee machine of any kind,oven that evidently did not work and / or lacked any instructions. Also noted the absence of a simple welcome pack (some tea, milk, biscuits etc ) which was the only time we found these lacking in many years of holiday lets. A short primted guide to the house and the owners requests would be more helpful than the many written notes taped to various walls through the house. These would not cost much to address and would be more in keeping with the rest of the house and its price point.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback from your stay. We are sorry you found the kitchen items not to be up standard, we shall share this with the owner for them to consider updating. We do hope that we get the opportunity to welcome you back to Cornwall in the future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. We have now put in a much simpler to use oven. The last one did seem rather confusing to use and the instructions had gone missing! - The owner. Property Owner

  • "Much improved facilities with new fridge/freezer."

    Dishwasher new but poor stacking arrangements and perhaps some of the bowls are not suitable.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the new facilities and thank you for your suggestion, all feedback is shared with the owner - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. We have taken two unwanted stacking accessories out of the dishwasher which does make it easier to fill the machine and we will get some shallower cereal bowls. The owner. Property Owner

  • "We love this house."

    It’s our second stay and it provides all our requirements. Great location and the house is well maintained. The outside sitting areas and garden are delightful.

    Thank you for your lovely comments regarding your stay at Drifters, so very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back for a third visit very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owners. Property Owner

  • "Thank you for your email."

    We had a family holiday at Drifters and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We particularly liked the open plan of the house and the lovely private back patio overlooking the garden. The house is very well positioned in Rock with easy access to restaurants and the ferry over to Padstow. We would definitely stay here again!

The property

Drifters is a contemporary, detached holiday home with splendid views overlooking the tidal waters of the Camel Estuary and the countryside beyond in Cornwall.

Located just a stroll from Rock beach, its fine waterfront restaurants, and shops, as well as the many fantastic facilities and activities on offer on the North Cornwall coast, Drifters features ample parking, and a homely interior, possible to serve up to eight guests.

With the main living areas set on the first floor, nothing can detract from the spectacular sea views.

The sunny glass balcony is perfect for planning your day's adventures or enjoying a quiet moment with a coffee and the papers.

After an exhilarating day, relax in the pretty rear garden and enjoy supper on the private terrace, or kick back in the generous, open-plan living area, which includes a well-equipped kitchen and dining space, and plush living room with a woodburning stove and a separate TV room.

Three of the airy bedrooms are located on the ground floor including two en-suite double rooms, and a twin room, along with a family bathroom; the remaining twin bedroom is set on the first floor.

Experience the best of Cornwall right from your doorstep; Drifters is conveniently located up the hill from the watersport hub at Rock, including the Rock Sailing Club, Water-ski Club and The Camel Ski School where you can practice sailing, paddle boarding, waterskiing, and kayaking on the sheltered waters of the Camel Estuary.

Catch the foot ferry over to Padstow for Rick Stein's fish and chips on the harbour or take a leisurely cycle on the Camel Trail to the nearest picturesque town of Wadebridge.

Walkers will adore the mile long stretch of beach that wraps around the coastline to Daymer Bay, a stunning sandy bathing beach ideal for younger children, whilst adrenalin junkies will want to head to nearby Polzeath, a blue flag beach and the surf capital of North Cornwall.

All of this awaits with a stay at Drifters.

Slipway & Anchorage

The Slipway properties are all located at the bottom of Rock, on the other side of the road from the Rock Sailing club slipway.  There are three terrace rows of houses that alll have South facing aspects and balconies and offer a perfect spot to have family groups rent multiple properties so each family can be in the same place as their friends but also have some space and time to themselves..

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.
