Blending coastal style with contemporary chic results in something rather special at this unique, self-catering home just off the Rock Road.

Stay at Longships and enjoy the hustle and bustle of central Rock with a tranquil base to come home to.

Nestled alongside rolling green fields, Longships occupies a unique positon just moments from the Rock Road. At Longships you can explore everything that Rock has to offer by foot.

Tucked away on a no through road, you can join the scenic footpath that winds down through the Cornish countryside to Porthilly Cove. From here you can walk along to Rock Beach at low tide or stroll along the road at high tide.

Enjoy sunny days on the sand at Rock beach. Here you can make memories with the family, playing beach games and paddling in the calm waters. Walk the coast path along to Daymer Bay for a picnic or to Polzeath for a bodyboarding session.

Those partial to water sports will be able to take their pick of ways to get in or on the water. The Rock Sailing and Water-skiing club is just down the road from Longships. Head out for a spot of paddleboarding and Prosecco or jump on the Wavehunters Sea Safari and explore the coastline.

Golf lovers will be in their element here as the prestigious St Enodoc golf course is just minutes away as well as the course at The Point. For those looking to spend quality time wave riding then Polzeath is just a short drive away. Here you can hire everything you need and take lessons with one of the quality surf schools there.

For evenings out you can leave the car keys at home and head for a fine dining experience at the nearby Dining Room. For dinner with a view head further down the Rock Road to The Mariners, Rock Inn or the Blue Tomato. For an adventure across the water jump on the ferry or water taxi and enjoy a world class culinary experience at Rick Stein’s Seafood restaurant Or Paul Ainsworth’s No. 6.
