The town of Rock is located across the Camel estuary from the fishing port of Padstow.
For somewhere so sandy it may not seem like the most appropriate name.
However, it comes from the local quarry where the rocks were used as ballast by sailing ships which had unloaded their cargo across the river. The quarry is now a car park.
A village shop stocked with a superb selection of fine wines and cheeses gives a clue to the popularity of the place with wealthy city types and other well to do posh folk, including certain members of the Royal family.
Occasionally referred to as ‘Chelsea-on-Sea’, Rock is reputed to be the home of more millionaires than anywhere else in Cornwall with exclusive villas and apartments discretely hidden amongst the trees.
I have often heard it said the town has an atmosphere that is not particularly welcoming to those who aren’t in the right set and don’t have the necessary pedigree and credentials – so pack your rugby shirts and boat shoes and don’t drop your ‘aitches’!
