There's no need to travel far once you arrive at Balangan, there's so much to do and see close by. The village of Rock is set on the Camel estuary frequented by sailing, surfing and golfing enthusiasts. It is ideal for all generations. Golden sands stretch north to Daymer Bay and South to Porthilly Cove, which is within walking distance of Balangan. We are situated in a quiet position on the edge of the village and approached by a private lane that runs on across the golf course onto the coastal path. This path will lead you to the beach at Rock where you can get the ferry over to Padstow. Those who would like a good walk follow the beach at Rock along to Daymer Bay, Polzeath and keep on walking on through Port Quin and up to the quaint fishing port, Port Isaac, and treat yourself to a cream tea or a pint of Doom. Theres a nice short circular walk through the famous links golf course of St Enodoc to the crooked-towered church where Sir John Betjeman is buried, and the golden sands of Daymer Bay then back along the beach to Rock taking in Porthilly beach where there is a beautiful church right on the waters edge. During the summer, sailing, waterskiing and fishing trips are available in Rock, while year-round, surf beckons at Polzeath. There’s a wide choice of restaurants, among many others there’s The Dining Room which is just a 5 minute walk, Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac, Rick Stein at Padstow or Jamie Oliver at Newquay to the many character village pubs serving local produce. Or return to Grass Court for a barbecue on the secluded patio and relax in the garden.

Why Kamila Surma chose Saint Minver Lowlands
Beautifully designed, the property has distinctive character features whilst maintaining an informal, spacious and contemporary style. Inside, the mood is a relaxed combination of old and new furniture and local art works. The slated hallway leads straight into the open plan kitchen/dining room and through a wide passage to the polished wooden floored sitting-room with woodburner and French doors to the patio and enclosed garden. The cottage is attached to 2 rarely used artist studios.
What makes this House unique
Although you are right in the centre of Rock where you can walk to shops, beaches, restaurants and a pub, it is also very quiet and tranquil at the house which is set in its own garden along a quiet track and has plenty of room for parking.

Lovely light and airy house in quiet area
Had a great holiday here with our 2 kids. How house was nice and light and airy, 2 large bed rooms both with on-suite bath rooms and plenty of parking. Had everything we needed. The house is down a quiet lane.
It is a short walk from a Spar, lovely bakery, butchers, deli and a fish and chip shop.
Polzeath is great for surfing and Daymer Bay for younger kids.
Would recommend to any one wanting to holiday in Rock
A walk along the Rock Road takes you to the beach at Rock which is a fabulous sandy beach which goes all the way along the estuary to Daymer Bay. From Daymer the coast path takes you to Grenaway Beach with huge rock pools, then a bit further on the coast path takes you to the popular Polzeath surfing beach. You can also take the ferry at Rock to take you over to the vibrant Padstow where a short walk takes you to some lovely secluded beaches.
Newquay airport about 20 miles
Exeter airport about 77 miles
Bodmin Parkway railway station 17 miles
Plymouth port is 46 miles
There is everything you might need on your holiday in the village of Rock and via the ferry to Padstow and maybe by hiring a bike to Wadebridge and Bodmin along the camel trail, but if you do want to drive there are some lovely villages and places of interest nearby. Port Issac is famous for the Doc Martin series and the Fisherman’s Friends who sing on the Plat most Fridays during the summer. The Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Helligan and Boscastle are well worth a visit.
All the major supermarket do deliveries to the area
