About The Owner

We only discovered Rock 5 years ago when we fell in love with the area and the activities it offers. As a family of 6 some of us will drive to Polzeath to surf while others meet on the beach for a morning coffee after enjoying the coastal walk. The afternoons are spent sailing with the thrill seekers preferring to chill at the house or on the beach until the water is calm for an early evening ski or wakeboard followed by a BBQ on the deck or walking to a bistro for dinner. The opportunity to buy and refurbish 1 The Terrace has mean't that we can enjoy all the area has to offer across the seasons, even surfing on Christmas Eve in Santa hats.

What makes this house unique

The central location and layout of the property allows family members and groups to be together or please themselves.... The recipe for a good holiday. The open plan living area means that you can watch the tides come and go while at the kitchen sink or sofa.

Beautiful House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is simply wonderful, the pictures online do not do it justice. The views across the estuary are stunning, even from all the way back in the kitchen. There were twelve of us, and we all had plenty of space and were very comfortable, even though we weren't there for a good weather week. We cooked dinners every night, the dining table is perfect for a big sociable group, there is plenty of fridge space and the kitchen is really well appointed. The owner was very responsive, and even before we arrived, had given us tips about arriving, settling in, and the location generally, along with leaving us a really nice gift of local cider and toiletries. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

Lovely house to stay in with big family

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. The living space was amazing and plenty of bedroom space for a large extended family to all stay. A bit disappointed I didn't see enough of the stunning top floor balcony!!

Great service from the owners.

We loved the house just as it was described. It was perfect for us (in total 9 people). Amazing location and view. Very clean and everyone felt at home the minute we have arrived. Just in walking distance to the ferry to Padstow or the local bars or restaurants. Excellent customer service by the owner. Would definitely recommend to a friend. Thank you again for everything!

Beautiful house in Rock

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, a real homely feel. It had everything we needed for 12, spacious, modern, clean and all kitchen equipment needed.

Lovely decking area off the kitchen where we ate our breakfast in the sun taking in the stunning views.

Just across the road is s lovely little garden again with gorgeous views.

I would highly recommend this house.
