We have listed a few things to do locally around Rock

We only discovered Rock 5 years ago when we fell in love with the area and the activities it offers. As a family of 6 some of us will drive to Polzeath to surf while others meet on the beach for a morning coffee after enjoying the coastal walk. The afternoons are spent sailing, with the thrill seekers preferring to chill at the house or on the beach until the water is calm for an early evening ski or wakeboard followed by a BBQ on the deck or walking to a bistro for dinner. The opportunity to buy and refurbish 1 The Terrace has meant that we can enjoy all the area has to offer across the seasons, even surfing on Christmas Eve in Santa hats.
