Beautiful house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

What a view!

A lovely spacious, well appointed house with the most stunning views over the Estuary & beyond - mesmerising!

11 of us holidayed over New Year with adults, kids and dogs - everyone was extremely happy with the layout of the house, the proximity to restaurants, pubs, walks, shops etc.

Although Rock is small, with the house being set as good as on the beach - the ferry to Padstow was yards away and opens up many eating, drinking and walking options just 10 minutes ride away.

There are many stunning walks locally round to Daymer Bay, Trebetherick and onto Polzeath, it`s the most stunning part of Cornwall

Ticks every box, loved it!

We could not fault this stunning property which offers breathtaking views, and has all the feeling of a 'home from home' as well as feeling understatedly luxurious. Nothing is too much trouble for the meticulous Katie, who catered to our every whim, definitively booking again.

A stunning and modern house in Rock

  • 5 of 5

The property has the most beautiful view and sits close to the Camel ski School which is rather convenient. The weather was great with plenty of fun on the beach and in the garden, not to mention the picturesque scenery and the fabulous view of the estuary. The rooms are well proportioned and light. The beds are superb and the bathrooms brilliant. The wet room was especially helpful to dry off the kit after going on the beach. Really loved our holiday here. Definitely coming again. See you next year. Thanks, Sol.

Great house great location..a truly special place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in Rock and made all the better from our stay in Tomhara. Everything was set up when we arrived and once the fighting was over as to who got what room we sat down and relaxed . What stunning views and a brilliant house with all the living areas upstairs with a great balcony.. Everything and more than the photos on the web. You really feel u are in a real beach property. Location wise it is great as only 5 minutes to magnificent beaches, cliff walks and the ferry to Padstow. I would recommend anyone to book Tomhara as it just lends to an easy going holiday. Went to Padstow for a couple of meals and great wine in the wine bar Bin2. Blue Tomatoe good for burger .......the owner was really helpful when we messed up the cooker timer and had us sorted in moments ..thanks Katie...we had a great time and you have a lovely house ...we will be back!!!!
