Rock

The pretty village of Rock on the Camel Estuary, could hardly be less appropriately named as its popularity is largely due to the long stretches of find sandy beaches washed by the tidal waters of the Camel Estuary. Rightly acclaimed as one of the major watersports centres in Cornwall, sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, canoeing and rowing are all activities which can be carried on in the relatively calm waters of the estuary.

Rock Sailing & Water Ski Club are situated on the Quay at Rock and there is a thriving sailing school and ski school both operating from further along the beach near the pontoon; boats can be hired for all water sports, as well as for fishing and bird watching. The Black Tor ferry runs from Rock to Padstow all year round during daylight hours and there is a Water Taxi available for late night "revellers". With the increase in water activities, the RNLI have now stationed a "D" Class lifeboat on the Ferry beach, providing cover in case of emergencies. The renowned St Enodoc Golf Club has two challenging courses to offer and there is scenic walking country over coastal and inland routes.

The Beach at Rock

The Beach at Rock is West facing, sandy beach on the eastern bank of the Camel Estuary, The beach to the north of the village, as you move towards Brea Hill and Daymer Bay becomes a large sand dune system. Easy level access from car park

Both Daymer Bay and Trebetherick are popular holiday beaches that have a huge appeal to all, from the young to the not so young. This is Betjeman country and unquestionably "special" - peaceful, exhilarating and magnificent, with wide open spaces in which to be at one with nature.

Daymer Bay Beach

The beach is a popular holiday destination for families. The combination of fine level sand, backed by sanddunes, is a firm favourite that attracts many people during the holiday season. The beach has a few rock pools along the northern edge, below just west of the car park.

At low tide there is a large expanse of sandthe sand, the beach stretches along the edge of the River camel, past Brea Hill in a southerly direction to Rock.

Many people choose to walk along sands down to Rock, where they can take the passenger Ferry across the river into Padstow.

Daymer Bay Parking

At the Northern Edge of the beach,there is a good sized car park. The Daymer Bay Beach Shop and cafe is located at the entrance to the car park. Daymer Bay Beach Shop provides light refreshments as well as beach paraphernalia.

The toilets are adjacent to the Shop at the entrance to the car park.

Access from the car park down to the beach, is via a small set of steps - the steps are not suitable for wheel chair users.

St Enodoc Church - Sir John Betjeman

St Enodoc Church, once buried in the sand, is within walking distance of the beach at Daymer and is now the final resting place of Sir John Betjeman.

As Polzeath is to surfers, Daymer Bay is to windsurfers - for the waves rolling up the estuary and for the calmer waters off Rock - yet there is enormous appeal too for small children with buckets and spades and "spuddling" in the rock pools.

There is golf to be enjoyed at nearby St Enodoc and Roserrow and the coastal footpath between Polzeath and St Enodoc is suitable for wheelchair users - a rare chance to be able to appreciate the stunning scenery of the headlands and estuary.

The Camel Estuary

The Camel Estuary in North Cornwall, with its contrasts of remote, rugged landscape, long stretches of sandy beaches and mild climate, is rightly claimed as one of, if not the major attraction on the North Cornish coast. The tidal waters of the estuary stretch from the mouth of the estuary some five miles south towards Wadebridge and up to a mile wide between Rock and Padstow. This large inland area of calmer waters is protected from the Atlantic ocean by Stepper Point, Pentire and a sand bar at the mouth of the estuary, giving ideal conditions for all varieties of water sports.

Polzeath, Rock, Daymer Bay - North CornwallPleasure, fishing and bird watching trips are available from Rock and Padstow. There is a wide variety of bird life along the coast towards The Rumps with an abundance of water fowl, seabirds both resident and migratory, and the magical clowns of the sea, the puffins.

Gannets and cormorants can be seen fishing, grey seals and occasionally dolphins may be spotted in the bay. The birdlife around the estuary is especially good with the Walmsley Sanctuary nearby at Amble - over 40 acres of bird sanctuary, migratory home to at least 90 species, as well as an abundance of other wildlife. Good fishing is found on the estuary for rod and line from the beach while sea fishing for mackerel, pollack and shark is also very popular.

The National Trust land at Pentire is an extensive carpet of wild flowers, at its best in the Spring. Guided walks help visitors explore and enjoy the rich network of footpaths with the most spectacular scenery and there are also circular walk leaflets for those who prefer to "go it alone".

For the more energetic, tennis and squash courts are available for hire while pony trekking, cycle hire and a choice of challenging golf courses, including St Enodoc, are within easy reach. The Camel Trail, running along the route the railway took, goes alongside the estuary from Padstow, through Wadebridge, Grogley Halt to the upper reaches of the Camel at Wenford and Bodmin - a cycle route that has become a model for others to follow.
