Rock is a short ferry ride across from Padstow and is the most lovely place to stay. It has become somewhat of a millionaires haven, but you can still find reasonable accommodations if you look. The beaches, starting at Rock itself and curling around to Daymer Bay are just so beautiful. Lovely golden sands, stretching for miles! And such a short car drive also to Padstow, which is a lovely little harbour town, famous these days for the Rick Stein restaurants!
