  • "We had a lovely stay at St Michaels, the location was perfect and the cottage was well equipped and very cosy."

  • "Lovely house, lovely location."

    BUT!! the house was absolutely disgusting we had to clean all cooking utensils and crockery as it had been put away dirty. The downstairs loo had human excrement on it. And bathroom room was not very clean. Out side in the court yard was dog poo and used dish clothes. The house was generally not very clean. Would not recommend. Which is quite sad. I have never complained about a house before.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for the upset caused by these issues. Your comments have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays. We hope you still managed to enjoy your visit despite these issues and would love to welcome you back to North Cornwall in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

  • "The cottage is well placed for walking to the beach and cafes etc."

    There is quite a lot of road traffic very early in the morning going to the Oyster farm. Bedding and towels are extra. Could do with clear glass in the door to the yard, to make it less oppressive on dull days.

    Thank you for your comments, we hope you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owners Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage - well equipped, clean, well situated, nicely decorated, comfy beds, quiet location, good parking."

    We chose it becaue there was an accesible, downstairs bedroom which suited an elderly grandparent. Bit of a pain bringing and fitting our own bed linen, but I guess this keeps the cost down? It even had a few extras which were not listed - an outside shed for storing wet beach gear with a tumble drier there. Also a cafetiere and hair-dryer (John Bray told me these were not at the property so we had to bring our own, unecessarily). We discovered the shower head fixing was broken but John Bray got it fixed straight away (on the Saturday). Having only one stand-up shower was OK for us as a group of 3, but if 6 were staying, then there might be a bit of a queue in the morning, or after a day at the beach! I suppose children would be happy to use the upstairs bath and hand shower. Overall, I would recommend the place.

    Thank you for your lovely comments, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Sorry for any confusion of the items supplied. we hope to welcome you back in the near future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at St Michaels."

    Loved the location, and the property was comfortable and cozy. Very close to Rock and just a few minutes from Porthilly beach too. Added bonus of a couple of electric car charging points just up the road which was a real plus being an EV driver. We will certainly return.

  • "The cottage at St Michaels is in a good location."

    The beds are comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. There is a washing machine, dishwasher and tumble dryer which were all useful. We had some problems with the keysafe but these were resolved quickly and the staff at John Bray were both friendly and helpful. Only negatives: We were aware that we had to bring our own linen and towels but I personally think this should never be the case nowadays. The cottage was not as clean as we would have hoped- kitchen and bathrooms were clean but around the house things were a bit grubby.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your holiday along with the property. We hope to welcome you back to North Cornwall soon. Property Owner

  • "There were a couple of snaggy issues that we let the John Bray office know about and someone came to fix them the next morning."

    This was very reassuring that problems are taken seriously and resolved.

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.
