  • "Unusually, in my lengthy experience with John Bray (JB), there were a couple of big issues to overcome on our arrival at Porthilly Greys."

    There was a mix up with the keys to the annex and when we got entry there was no linen on the annex bed. Obviously, after lengthy journeys from London and Lincolnshire, this was rather frustrating. However, JB’s emergency number was manned by James, who very efficiently sorted everything out and personally made up the bed when he arrived with the bedding. Porthilly Greys is an interesting, comfortable house in a splendid position with conveniently close access to Porthilly beach and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would be very happy to return in the future.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay. We're very sorry that you had to experience these issues during your stay but thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we sorted them for you. Your comments have been passed on to the team at John Bray Cornish Holidays. We hope to welcome you back to north Cornwall in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

  • "We loved the house and fully enclosed garden, it was ideally positioned for walking our dog on the beach and for the local pubs and shops."

    We didn’t need to drive anywhere which was marvelous. The house was warm with the extra radiators provided, and the king bed was super comfy. We had a super time and are very likely to rebook next year if available.

The property

Porthilly Greys is undergoing extensive renovation during Winter 2021/2022, photos are to be updateded in Spring 2022. Porthilly Greys is a distinctive, refurbished Grade II listed Cornish farmhouse, resting in Rock, Cornwall.

It has origins as a Grey Friars monastic settlement; whilst keeping some original features like its slate flooring and low ceiling, Porthilly Greys has been fully refurbished into a contemporary holiday home that is perfect for a family of eight to ten’s Cornish getaway.

Upon arrival, you will discover three off-road parking spaces accompanied by an electric charging point, for added convenience.

Wander inside to be welcomed by a stylish sitting room with a toasty open fire; sit back, relax and enjoy a show on the TV after an eventful day.

The sitting room opens out to the contemporary extension’s sleek kitchen/diner, which features shaker-style cabinetry and a spacious breakfast bar, along with ample appliances, such as an American-style fridge/freezer and a wine chiller; the designated chef will find cooking delicious meals a breeze here!

Settle down to a tasty meal at the dining table whilst you plan your holiday itinerary or take your meal outside to the fabulous rear garden, which also houses a handy outdoor shower and wetsuit hanger.

The main house hosts four of the five superb bedrooms on the first floor, including: two marvellous king-sizes with en-suite shower rooms and two twins containing zip/link beds, offering flexible sleeping arrangements.

The bedrooms in the main house also enjoy access to a nearby bathroom, an impressive space enjoying a rainfall, walk-in shower, along with a luxurious, roll-top bath; the ground floor also hosts a fantastic wet room, ideal for preventing those morning queues!

Those seeking a little more privacy will be pleased to find another king-size with an en-suite in the annex.

Porthilly Greys is located less than 200 meters from Porthilly Cove set on the Camel Estuary, so you can enjoy fun in the sun and sand without the need to travel far.

The nearby Porthilly Farm sells a mouth-watering array of mussels or oysters, which you can bring home to rustle up delectable, seafood dishes with, or, if you’re not feeling up to cooking, venture into Rock to find ample eateries and pubs for you to dine in!

Spend some time in Rock and make the most of its stunning beach with its water-based activities, before boarding a ferry to Padstow, where the fascinating attractions of the National Lobster Hatchery and Prideaux place can be found, along with access to the South West Coastal Path.

This part of Cornwall still has so much waiting to be seen, with Polzeath and Wadebridge being found nearby and offering plenty to do, along with the fantastic locations of Bodmin Moor, Newquay, St Austell and many more resting further afield.

Whisk your loved ones away for a break they won’t forget and book a stay at the magnificent Porthilly Greys.

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.
