Rock is located in North Cornwall on the north side of the Camel Estuary across from the fishing port of Padstow. The name comes from the local quarry where the rocks were used as ballast by sailing ships which had unloaded their cargo across the river.
The village of Rock has many shops, including a bakery, newsagent and post office, a gorgeous delicatessen and a great fish and chip shop. There's also a small but excellent supermarket and a butcher and fish shop. Rock and Padstow have several well known, excellent restaurants and pubs
