Hawkers is the epitome of contemporary Cornish living. Close to amenities but set back from the hustle and bustle of Rock, it’s within easy reach of Porthilly Cove and Rock Beach.

Hawkers is tucked away in a quiet area just off the main Rock Road and backs onto a stream and green field.

Hawkers provides a peaceful base for exploring everything Rock has to offer on foot. A ten-minute leisurely stroll takes you along a scenic footpath, through green fields and down to the secluded Porthilly Cove. Here you can discover a tranquil estuary-side beach with picturesque church and local art gallery. On a low tide, walk across to the long golden sands and dunes at Rock Beach.

You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to activities in the area. Both Porthilly Cove and Rock Beach offer calm bathing waters for those who fancy a dip. At Rock, you can learn to sail and water ski, or go on a sea safari with Wavehunters to spot local wildlife. The renowned St Enodoc Golf Course is an easy stroll away and offers two challenging 18-hole courses. If you're a surfer, you can drive to Polzeath in under ten minutes: there you'll find excellent surfing conditions and a variety of surf schools offering lessons.

Fine-dining restaurants such as Nathan Outlaw’s The Mariners and The Dining Room are within easy walking distance, as is the ferry to Padstow. This opens up the possibility of enjoying a leisurely lunch at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant, or perhaps a visit to Paul Ainsworth’s No. 6, coupled with a stroll around the galleries and charming harbour of Padstow. If you fancy a cosy evening in, the fantastic Rock N Roll fish and chip shop is just minutes away.
