    “The description of the location suggested a 10 minute walk to the ferry.”

    It is in fact 1.2 miles and if the ferry is used at low tide a demanding extra 1/4 mile walk over soft sand. We are both in our mid seventies and lucky to be reasonably mobile. Fortunately we took the car down to the ferry carpark. If we had not we would have been unable to walk back up the hill to return to the excellent house.

The bakery, butchers and Spar were all very good and the house and facilities top quality.

    I am sorry that you have marked down our lovely house because of the tidal nature of the ferry ,something which was explained to you in our introductory conversation prior to your stay with us and to which you responded that the information was 'good to know'. Sykes description of the property actually states that within a ten minute walk or a four minute drive is Ferry point with excellent restaurants including the Mariner's pub and the famous Blue Tomato. Ferry point is an area of Rock with shops, restaurants, facilities and a car park it does not specifically say to the Ferry . This is why we mention in our introductory telephone conversation the tidal nature of the ferry and that if a longer boat ride and a shorter walk is required then the high tide crossing is the one to aim for ,if possible, as a crossing at low tide involves a walk on the beach at either end of the shorter boat ride. I understand that the Sykes writer timed these journeys himself but conditions and people do vary so perhaps we had better note this. The footpath to Porthilly beach and Ferry point is marked in the Welcome pack which is the shorter route. I also mention that the return journey is up hill as I did in our conversation . I am sorry that this has marred your stay with us and I will ask Sykes to re phrase the description and to note that the ferry is tidal and I will continue to try to ensure that guests understand this in our initial chats. Please may I thank you for the way that the house was left after your stay with us housekeeping said that they had never seen a house vacated by guests left in such a clean and considerate state . Thank you very much . Property Owner

About the location

ROCK

Padstow 1.5 miles via ferry; Polzeath 2.8 miles; Wadebridge 6.2 miles.

Rock is a desirable and much sought after coastal village located on the north eastern bank of the River Camel opposite the famous harbour town of Padstow which is easily reached by a regular ferry service. The summer home of royalty and celebrities offering top class restaurants and quality shops, the real draw is the array of watersports including sailing, water skiing, windsurfing and angling. Continuing on a sporting theme, the golf course at nearby St Enodoc is considered to be one of the best in the country. With an abundance of world class beaches all within a short radius it is easy to see why Rock holds its popularity.
