  • "It’s not good when you arrive, and then have to go straight out and buy cleaning products, so that drawers, kitchen and bathroom cupboards can be cleaned before use."

    There was human hair everywhere!! Good location and large comfortable house - let down by lack of cleanliness.

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.

  • "Lovely property, perfect for our family get together."

    Plenty of space in the living room and great, sociable dining/kitchen space. An amazing week had by all. The garden would be absolutely stunning in the good weather - we managed to sit out on a couple of occasions but would be amazing when the sun finally arrives! Would definitely recommend. Thank you!

    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. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Excellent value for money - especially considering number of bedrooms, good sized rooms, safe garden etc."

    Garden chair / lounger essential to enjoy the garden but sadly not provided. Could be slightly cleaner but it is a large house with dog accessibility and it was certainly good enough.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, we are pleased you enjoyed the property so much. 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. Property Owner

  • "On arrival the property was fairly unclean."

    Some kitchen cupboards were dirty with one with spice spilled inside. The were very old cobwebs in most of the bedrooms between the beds and bedside units. There were old dead spiders in the downstairs shower. There were old squashed spiders on the window blinds. Some of the carpets were dirty. The Nespresso coffee machine smelt foul and hadn’t been cleaned. I could say much more. Such a shame because the property is amazing with a fantastic garden. It’s a shame we spent a few hours on our arrival cleaning.

    Thank you for your comments. We will investigate these with housekeeping team here at John Brays. 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

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.
