A stunning Cornwall holiday house in an unrivalled cliff top position, Brock provides the perfect base for a family holiday.
Brock is perched on the cliffs at Trebetherick Point, at the mouth of the beautiful Camel Estuary, on the North Cornwall coast with uninterrupted sea views. The garden runs down to the cliff edge, with safe and easy access to secluded beaches immediately below. It is a five minute walk to the beautiful sandy beach at Daymer Bay and ten minutes walk to the surfing beach at Polzeath. The area offers limitless activities, including sailing, golf, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, waterskiing and fishing.
Located on Trebetherick point, Brock is uniquely positioned with uninterrupted views of both the North Atlantic and the Camel Estuary. Built in 1938, its traditional "Arts and Crafts" design has been retained through a number of original features, but it has been comprehensively modernised and extended.
Downstairs is a well-equipped, eat-in kitchen, with a separate utility/drying room. There is also a separate dining room with French doors opening onto a terrace facing the sea, which is ideal for outside dining and barbecues.
There are two sitting rooms. The first has an open fire for cooler, winter evenings. The second sitting room, known as the garden room, features large windows for stunning sea views. There are two sets of French doors leading from the garden room to a terrace and eating area outside. There is a television in both rooms.
Beyond the kitchen there is a twin bedroom with an adjacent shower and W.C.
The house has six bedrooms. The master bedroom has a superking size double bed, separate dressing area and large en-suite bathroom with separate bath, shower and W.C. There is another double room, also with a superking size bed, at the other end of the house. The remaining four bedrooms upstairs are two twin rooms and two singles. There is a bathroom with a walk-in shower and W.C., along with two further bathrooms, both with W.C. and a bath/shower. All bedrooms have sea facing views and their own wash basin.
The house is set in over 1 acre of grounds. The main lawn runs from the house to the cliff footpath, which is shielded from view by tamarisk hedges. There is a terrace facing the sea and a more sheltered eating area on the other side of the house.

Cornwall’s natural landscape provides a contrast of wide sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, hidden coves, unspoiled fishing villages, vineyards, countryside and coastal walks, lots of water sports and a mild coastal climate. Brock being in an outstandingly beautiful location overlooking the Camel estuary takes advantage of all these attractions.
Daymer Bay is a large and safe sandy beach which is great for swimming, a 5 minute walk along the cliff footpath from Brock. The rock pools are a haven for young children and the acres of golden sands are perfect for buckets and spades and walking. It is also a popular spot for windsurfing, kitesurfing and power kiting. Brae Hill overlooks the beach and offers breathtaking views of the estuary. Just beyond the sand dunes is the beautiful St Enodoc Church, which holds the grave of Sir John Betjeman.
Polzeath and Surfing
A short walk up the coastal path and you reach Polzeath, regarded as one of the best surfing beaches in Cornwall. There are plenty of little restaurants, cafes and surf shops by the beach and you can hire wetsuits and surfboards if you fancy a quick surf or a lesson. Polzeath has lifeguards during the summer months and car parking on the beach or on the cliff above.
Rock and Watersports
Rock is a centre for many water sports including sailing and waterskiing. There is an active Sailing Club and a sailing school with tuition for beginners and hire of dinghies. The Camel Ski School provides instruction for water skiing for all levels. Sea fishing trips can also be booked. Rock also has good sandy beaches and a ferry service to Padstow.
The famous St. Enodoc Golf Club at Rock has an 18-hole championship course and a shorter 18-hole course which is ideal for beginners. The courses are classic links courses with spectacular views across the estuary. There is also an 18-hole course at Roserrow near Polzeath.
Padstow is an historic fishing port with a pretty working harbour which the whole town revolves around. Fishing trips, pleasure boats and high powered speed boats may be booked from the quayside or alternatively visit the National Lobster Hatchery or the Elizabethan manor house and Deer Park at Prideaux Place.
Padstow has many pubs, restaurants and cafes and is home to the well known seafood restaurant owned by the celebrity chef Rick Stein who also has a bistro, café, fish and chip shop and cookery school in the town. Rock also has two restaurants run by double Michelin starred chef Nathan Outlaw.
The Camel Trail, once the route of the old railway line (and completely flat), is a brilliant cycling day out for all the family, running from Wadebridge to Padstow. Bicycles can be hired to ride along the trail from either Wadebridge or Padstow. Other attractions locally include the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the beautiful fishing village of Port Isaac, many historic houses and wonderful gardens, castles including Tintagel and family theme parks.
