Rock’s a glamorous village, and its location right on the Camel Estuary has always made it a popular resort with the rich and famous keen to enjoy the area’s water sports and sailing. The resort is a favourite with Prince Harry, Hugh Grant and all kinds of other famous faces – and it’s so popular with the rich and famous that there’s even a helipad nearby.
Don’t worry if you’re leaving your helicopter at home for this holiday, The Rock Inn sits right beside the water with spectacular views across the estuary and the ferry to Padstow leaves from just outside the inn. The terrace makes the perfect spot to sit and enjoy watching life on the water (or to do a sneaky bit of people watching on a sunny day) and the inn serves good food at reasonable prices.
Families and dogs are more than welcome, and there’s a chic feel throughout The Rock that makes it a relaxing place to spend time and just enjoy the location. It’s best to book for an evening meal and the menu includes beer battered fish, homemade local sausages and fresh handpicked local crab. There’s a daily specials board too so don’t forget to check what’s available.
