  • "Terrace 5 was a very disappointing experience."

    We have stayed in a lot of houses in Rock over the years and the fact that we left half way through our stay speaks volumes. We arrived to find that the central heating was turned OFF. It was 6 degrees outside. The house was freezing. The two floors where the bedrooms were located never got warm - it is a drafty, poorly maintained and low quality house with a lot of damp, cracked and cold areas. Additionally, the bedroom doors don’t close properly - the top floor (which thankfully we weren’t using) would have been a terrible experience for any poor children relegated up there. The kitchen cleanliness left a lot to be desired with a lot of the plates and cutlery having dried on old food still present. There was no coffee machine and the freezer was broken. It kept letting out shrill beeps through our stay. The keys in the back door were covered in rust like substance which had to be cleaned lest clothes get destroyed. The sofas and beds are uncomfortable and again needed maintenance / lower end of the quality scale. The garden (across the road) was out of action due to a damaged wall / high spring tide which looked very advantageous to the building site next door (note : both houses either side of 5 are being renovated during working hours). We checked the portal as instructed to complain but there are no links / numbers, hence just leaving early. Don’t let the photos fool you. Not a good example of a John Bray holiday let.

  • "We really liked staying in one of the older, character buildings in Rock."

    The house was generously proportioned with high ceilings and an elegant look and feel. It has also been thoughtfully decorated inside, in keeping with its original style and features. The large sitting room, with its bay window overlooking the bay, is a great place to spend time and spacious enough to accommodate quite a few people. Spending time in the front garden, watching the sunset in the evenings, was very enjoyable. We also really liked that there is plenty of parking to the rear of the property as it meant that we were never searching for parking spaces. What could make it even better? 1. Make more of the basement area as is a great place for teenagers to relax. We had to keep the door open whenever we were in there as there was an odour emanating from somewhere. 2. Make more of the rear garden as this is another lovely place to sit and enjoy some peace, whilst still having lovely views across the bay. 3. Make sure the barbecue gas cylinder has an adequate supply. We had to buy a new cylinder as the one there was empty. We managed to get the last one just in time for some friends coming round. We would have been a bit stuck had we not been able to get one! Overall, we were very happy. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It's great to hear that you had such a fabulous stay at The terrace 5 and had the perfect base to explore the north Cornish coastline from! - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

The property

The Terrace 5 is a stylish and spacious, end-of-terrace holiday home, set in a prime position overlooking the Camel Estuary and Padstow, with all that the village of Rock has to offer, right on your doorstep.

Soak up the stunning estuary views from all of the front facing rooms and the private gardens, whilst a secluded beach-front garden rests across the road, accessed via a pedestrian gate.

The Terrace 5 has been recently renovated and refurbished, whilst retaining its original Victorian charm with spacious rooms, large windows inviting the light in, chandeliers and elegant furnishings.

This self-catering holiday cottage accommodation is laid out over four floors, and welcomes up to ten guests for a family or group getaway.

On the ground floor there is an elegant living room to greet you, with plenty of seating around a classic open fireplace and a bay window seat, perfect for watching the world go by.

A well-equipped kitchen/diner is also set here, with excellent facilities for budding chefs to cook up a storm after a long day on the Camel Estuary; step out onto the patio to relax and dine alfresco on balmy summer evenings.

The handy utility area is found in the basement, offering plenty of storage and a shower room for anyone arriving straight from the sea.

All of the beautifully furnished bedrooms are spread over the first and second floors, some with authentic decorative fireplaces; the master bedroom suite is the jewel in the crown with spectacular elevated sea views.

Within short walking distance to the village’s excellent restaurants, shops, beaches, and a huge range of on and off the water activities, the home is well-positioned for all types of visitors.

Stroll across to the Rock Waterski and Sailing Club to book in some water-skiing lessons, or for something a little more relaxing, head out to the dunes to build sandcastles on Rock's golden sandy beach, or walk barefoot in the sand right around to Daymer Bay.

Catch the ferry to Padstow and explore the famous harbour town with some of Rick Stein fish and chips, or walk the coastal paths onto the next bays, Daymer Bay and Polzeath Beach to name a few.

All of this awaits at The Terrace 5.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.

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.
