Visit Rock

Found in North Cornwall and across the Camel Estuary from Padstow lies Rock - a wonderful holiday destination that attracts a myriad of visitors to the county. In recent years, the town has become known as a trendy destination with the likes of Prince Harry and Hugh Grant holidaying here. This coupled with the stunning scenery sees the town often referred to as ‘Britain’s St Tropez’ or the ‘Kensington of Cornwall’.

What to expect from a Newquay holiday

Newquay: a top destination for families, a mecca for the surfing community, and one of the UK’s favourite seaside towns. Compared to the sleepy fishing villages and market towns that dot Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast, holidays in this buzzing town are rather different! We’re proud to present a selection of hotels in and around the area, including accommodation providers right on the beach.

Best dog-friendly Cornwall beaches

From popular spots including Fistral and Watergate Bay in Newquay, through to secret coves and bays that you may never have heard of before now, we've done the homework to let you know which Cornish beaches allow dogs. Read on to see the full list of beaches where dogs are allowed all year round, where there are restrictions, and where there are annual bans.

A trendy town

Despite the town’s name, Rock beach is a beautiful, fine, white sand beach that stretches for a mile from the edge of the River Camel around to Daymer Bay.

The town is home to some fantastic pubs and restaurants. Here you are able to experience some of the finest dining that the county has to offer, including Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw’s contemporary pub The Mariners. There are plenty of shops in the town, too, including the popular Rock Bakery where you can buy freshly baked bread, cakes and Cornish pasties.

For a day trip, take the ferry across the river from Rock to Padstow where you can sample everything from traditional pasties to freshly caught seafood at Rick Stein’s The Seafood Restaurant. Other nearby attractions include the Eden Project, Prideaux Place and Polzeath Beach.
