  • "The only reason I’ve gave you a nine is because there was no bedroom downstairs and wasn’t disabled friendly as I am a senior I found it very hard to go up the stairs and the three rooms downstairs could’ve been easy, turned into a bedroom but other than that, we had a brilliant time."

    Lovely house a bit of paint needed here in there but overall I will give you 10 out of 10

    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. We are sorry to hear that you found mobility an issue but are happy that you still enjoyed your stay! - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful short stay at Artemis."

    This contemporary home was stunning along with the modern interior, tastefully decorated and felt very homely. The location of the property was perfect for us, great beaches along with excellent pubs and restaurants, we had an amazing Sunday Roast at Paul Ainsworth - The Mariners at Rock overlooking the estuary to Padstow. We would totally recommend this holiday home to others.

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the near future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owners. Property Owner

  • "Artemis is a beautiful home in a great location."

    Lovely and clean, well equipped and spacious living area. Bedrooms were gorgeous, although we didn’t utilise them all. Kitchen had everything we needed and more, the games area in the garage was great and the piano was a lovely touch. Board games galore were perfect for the rainy evenings in. Washer, dryer and downstairs shower were a great convenience. The Pityme Inn just a stones throw away, nice for drinks and dining. Also visited the Bluntrock Brewery on a couple of occasions for drinks and guest food trucks, just 5 mins walk. Perfect location for Rock, Polzeath and Port Isaac, all within 15 minute drive or ferry to Padstow. Although our party was smaller, this house is the perfect family getaway with 3 separate lounge areas. Secure garden for our dog so no worries there. This place definitely deserves 5 stars, house behind mentioned in previous reviews nearly complete apart from interiors as far as I can see, at the time of writing Sept 2023 so no issues there with regards to noise.

    Thank you for your lovely comments they are highly appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "What a lovely house to stay in, you can tell this is much loved home by the owners, it has a warm feeling about it."

    We stayed the Christmas week and we were greeted with a real Christmas tree which was a nice touch and a foil tray to cook our Turkey in. This a fantastic place to stay. We've stayed in Rock at 7 different houses and this one had everything we needed to make our time away perfect and we can't wait to return. Thank you best wishes for 2023 P. S Really love the John Betjeman drawing.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It's great to hear that you had such a fabulous stay at Artemis and had the perfect base to explore the north Cornish coastline from! Its wonderful to hear you enjoyed everything this property has to offer. We look forward to inviting you back to North Cornwall again soon. John Bray on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "The property is beautiful and well equipped."

    Unfortunately, some areas of the house were not very clean, toothpaste splashes in the bathrooms and dust and cobwebs in other areas. There was also dog mess left in the garden. The property really needs a deep clean. We also had a morning without water which was disappointing. We were told there was ‘some’ building work on the neighbouring property. In reality a house is being completely rebuilt running along the bottom of the garden. Currently at the roofing stage, this meant that we had noise, no privacy and our dog was constantly disturbed. Honest information about what was happening would have been appreciated. It’s a real shame as the property and our holiday experience could have been amazing…..

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay at Artemis. We're very sorry that you had to experience these issues during your stay. We have passed your comments onto house keeping regarding the cleanliness of the property. We are sorry that the building works were behind schedule and this had a knock on affect to your holiday, which was beyond our control- John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

    ! Syke cottages should have kept up to date with what’s going on. It has ruined our holiday and will never trust syke cottages again

    Thank you for leaving your feedback following your stay at Artemis. We are looking into the issue you have raised with the building works; we are really sorry that this impacted your stay.

    Some table lamp bulbs had blown and we couldn't find spares, but we had a wonderful time and would book Artemis again.

  • "We love Rock and the layout of this property."

    It has for double bedrooms, all with en-suite which is preferred. Downside is that two of the rooms do not have any hanging space, which proved to be annoying, particularly as this had been fed back on a previous occasion and would be easily fixed with a few coat hooks. My only other criticism, is that the cleanliness was not up to standard. There were numerous large cobwebs that I removed from various locations throughout the property. Having stayed at this property previously, the cleanliness was not of the usual standard.

    Thank you for your comments. We will investigate these with the caretaking team and the owner. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope you enjoyed your stay regardless of these and would love to welcome you back in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed at Artemis numerous times over the past 3 years and love the house (all en-suite rooms being a huge bonus) and the location."

    However, this year we noticed a huge change in the general cleanliness of the house and its facilities. The frying pans were unusable as the non stick coating was peeling off on both and there were no oven gloves. After contacting John Bray, we waited almost a week for both of these to be replaced so had to go out and buy our own in the meantime. Water wasn’t draining in one of the showers so we lifted the plug a little and found it to be thick with mould and hair. Another bathroom had brown marks on the side of the toilet, bath, and tiles like someone had vomited. The windows were filthy and covered in cobwebs, both inside and out. The outside bbq was a rusty piece of metal which was unusable. The wooden floors were dirty and the main rug in the living was covered in stains. We paid a lot of money for our 4 week stay and as much as we love the property it needs a really deep clean and some tlc by the owners and John Bray.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with 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, had we been made aware of the cleanliness issues on arrival we would of course have arranged to have sent a housekeeping team member to rectify this. We do try to check as many properties prior to arrival as possible but due to time restrictions we cannot check them all. 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! Property Owner

The property

Please note: There are internal building works taking place at the property directly behind Artemis.

Artemis, named after one of the Greek goddess’s, is a stunning, contemporary holiday home resting in the popular village of Rock, on the beautiful north Cornwall coast.

Finished to exacting standards, this self-catering property can comfortably cater up to eight guests, looking to explore the coast and countryside, offering a great base to discover the best of North Cornwall as a large group or family.

From the moment you enter, experience the bright and welcoming interiors which flow throughout, combining pastel colours to remind you that the seaside is only a stone’s throw away.

The ground floor is the main social hub of the house, offering a well-equipped kitchen and a living/dining room that extends out onto the garden patio, perfect for that ultimate alfresco dining experience.

Along with the living/dining room, there is a choice of a two further living areas to retreat to; the middle living area is a great space to relax with a good book, and the end room is a dedicated TV room to catch up on the latest TV series.

There is a separate utility area with access into the garden and garage, kitted out with table tennis for hours of fun.

Climb up the sleek glass staircase to the first-floor hallway, linking each bedroom.

The master en-suite is an elegant room offering plenty of space and a luxury bathroom; a further king-size and two twin bedrooms, each with en-suites, complete the sleeping accommodation, providing flexibility.

Located at the top of Rock Road, yet only a short walk to the village centre with the many shops, restaurants and the famous sheltered waters of the Camel Estuary, Artemis rests in a convenient location.

Enjoy a meal at The Mariners Public House, recently re-opened by Paul Ainsworth and Sharp’s Brewery, or catch the ferry over to Padstow to explore the harbour.

For surfing enthusiasts looking for that perfect wave, take a short drive to famous Pozleath beach, a blue-flag beach on the North Cornwall coast, suitable for all levels depending on the surf.

For more watersports or casual swimming, pop over to Daymer Bay, a beautiful, sheltered cove, perfect for all the family to enjoy a paddle, or to watch the kite-surfers from your beach pitch.

If you have a love for characterful cottages, narrow streets, local delicacies and of course, the BBC TV series Doc Martin, Port Isaac is only a car journey away, offering something for everyone.

All of this awaits at Artemis.

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.
