In Rock

26.04.22

The beautiful coastal town of Rock sits on the banks of the Camel Estuary making it one of the prettiest towns in North Cornwall. Located within an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, Rock is known for its outstanding golf, scenic coastal views and rolling countryside, as well as a centre for sailing. Set across the water from Padstow, Rock offers a relaxed coastal lifestyle with a clutch of trendy waterfront cafes, restaurants and shops along the Rock Road, which follows the gentle curve of the Camel Estuary. Rock beach itself is a mile long stretch of golden sand and tufted dunes that stretches from Porthilly Cove (known for its mussels and oysters) right around the coastline to Daymer Bay. Perfect for walking, the beach remains dog-friendly all year round.

Rock offers a mix of traditional, mostly detached buildings alongside contemporary architecture. Expect to pay a premium for waterside properties with sea views, with lower prices achieveable as you head further inland towards the village. Rock itself incorporates; Porthilly, Stoptide, Splatt, Penmayne, Pityme, Tredrizzick and St Minver.

The civil parish of St Minver is divided into St Minver Highlands (to the north and east) and St Minver Lowlands (to the west). The combined parish is bounded on the south and west by the estuary of the River Camel, on the north by the Atlantic coast, and on the east by the parishes of St Endellion and St Kew. The principal villages in St Minver Lowlands are RockTrebetherick and Polzeath, while St Minver Highlands encompasses the main villages of St MinverTredrizzick, part of Polzeath and New Polzeath. Both parishes benefit from a Neigbourhood Development Plan that serves to enable both a desirable second home market to flourish, whilst preserving the balance of a vibrant, main residence community.

The majority of sales in Rock during the last year were detached properties, selling for an average price of £1,046,451. Semi-detached properties sold for an average of £639,333, with terraced properties fetching £1,575,000. With an overall average selling price of £1,038,630, Rock was more expensive than nearby Padstow (£576,888) and Wadebridge (£321,376). Additionally each year a number of properties in Rock are sold off-market. Often a vendor led decision, these private sales are increasingly designed to protect the anonymity of the parties involved.
