Wheel Cottage

50° 32' 39.631"N -4° 55' 16.426"W

This enchanting old fisherman's cottage with views across the estuary, set only footsteps away from the golden sands of Rock Beach.

Wheel Cottage sits within a small row of picture-perfect cottages towards the bottom of the Rock Road. The road and your garden is all that separates you from the beach.

Stay only a stone's throw away from the gentle waters of the Camel Estuary and within walking distance of all that Rock has to offer. From Wheel Cottage, you can choose from the secluded sands at Porthilly Cove and the long golden beach and dunes of Rock. Alternatively, you can walk along to Daymer Bay from Rock Beach at low tide, or travel on to Greenaway and Polzeath. The ferry to Padstow leaves from the top of Rock Beach nearby, making it easy to explore the other side of the estuary.

Based within walking distance of all the restaurants and pubs in Rock, you won't even need to reach for your car keys. Just up the road you can sample local ales with dinner at Nathan Outlaw's pub The Mariners. Here you can sit and relax on the balcony that overlooks the estuary. Just down the hill are The Rock Inn, No. 1 Rock Road and The Blue Tomato, all serving delicious food with a view.

Wheel Cottage is the ideal base for water sports enthusiasts. The Rock Sailing and Water Ski Club (just over the road) offers lessons, and you can catch a sea safari from the pontoon. This will take you along the estuary and out to sea, wildlife spotting along the way. Polzeath Beach, with its fantastic surf conditions and surf schools, is just a ten-minute drive away. You are also within easy walking distance of the St Enodoc Golf Club.

Walk to the beach

Wheel Cottage is as close to Rock Beach as you can get. Cross the road to your private garden, which sits above the beach. On a low tide you can walk along the beach or on a high tide it's just a minute along the Rock Road. Porthilly Cove is also only minutes away in the opposite direction.
