  • Chic Boutique Accommodation
Stylish, luxury holiday cottage overlooking the estuary in the glamorous North Cornwall village of Rock

It takes something to stand out from the crowd in Rock, the well-heeled village on North Cornwall's rugged north coast. But 17 Slipway has that 'something' in spades, a luxurious, wonderfully appointed, mid-terrace holiday cottage spread over three floors and with glorious views over the Camel estuary. It's a stylish base for friends and family, with a terrific beach and dunes nearby, plenty of local walking routes and watersports, and a great range of cafes, bars and restaurants within walking distance. Padstow and its renowned restaurants are just a short ferry ride away, and there's on-site parking with space for two cars.

The whole of the first-floor living area is open-plan, with a contemporary wood burner, an excellent, high-spec kitchen and dining area, and a glass-fronted balcony for amazing estuary views. There's everything from Netflix on the smart TV and a separate drinks fridge to Sonos sound bar and Nespresso machine, so it's a fine space for hanging out and enjoying meals together. Three bedrooms occupy the other two floors, starting with an en-suite king on the second floor, and on the ground floor a king with en-suite shower room and a twin-bedded room, along with a family bathroom. There's also a utility and wet room with a shower, which is handy if you've come straight from the beach.

There are going to be long discussions about who gets the master en-suite bedroom, which occupies the whole of the second floor and overlooks the estuary through large Velux windows. It's a calm, grown-up space, with plenty of room, and a smart bathroom – grab it if you can. However, decor throughout the whole house is in contemporary seaside colours – lots of white, splashes of stone, yellow and blue – and there really are majestic views from almost every corner, so everyone can enjoy the privileged location.

A raised patio and gas barbecue complete the picture outside, though you're likely to be off and out come the evening, to mingle with the celebs in the nearby bars and restaurants. As self-catering cottages go, 17 Slipway really does have it all if you're looking for a shot of glamour in one of the most sought-after places in Cornwall.



Available all year.

Thank you for sharing your lovely place

Thank you for sharing your lovely place. We love Rock. Recommend St Enodoc Golf Club (bring plenty of balls and a sense of humour!), walk to Polzeath, Rojano’s Italian in Padstow, The Pig at Harlyn Bay (and the long coastal walk back after lunch), The Cracking Crab at Polzeath for a snacky lunch. Go to Port Isaac and enjoy the vegan ice cream by the main car park (exemplary hand hygiene by the sales girl). Drive to Porthcothan beach and enjoy a pastie from the beach shop. Go to Tintagel Castle (ignore the town) and take the Land Rover taxi back up the hill. Visit Mother Ivey’s Bay – park in the National Trust car park. Only 10 minutes walk – worth it …or just stay on the balcony and look at the view – lovely! Enjoy your stay as much as we have. Thank you for having us.

Great few days

A great few days staying at number 17 (overflow from our home!). Very well kitted out and comfortable thank you and my 93-year-old mother loved sitting at the window looking at the view. Thank you.

Attention to detail is superb

Like many people, we have been coming to Rock for Easter for many years – we have stayed in many houses, but this one has worked so well for us. Great fit-out and attention to detail is superb, location awesome, view mesmerising – I will have to pry my wife out with a very big stick! For anyone who doesn’t know the area, we would recommend Constantine Bay/Port Quinn, church at Porthilly + 3 mile walk over the headland to Polzeath. Hope we will return next year

Fantastic week

We had a fantastic week at Slipway 17. It has a great open-plan kitchen/living room space, so the chef is included in the conversation, which is in the middle of the house.

Fab house

Second year at this fab house. Superb weather – 1st week of Easter is always the best one. Kids had a great time which is a massive bonus. Hoping we will be offered Easter next year too. Thanks a million!!!

Finest property we have stayed in

Having stayed in Polzeath for the last 15 years this was our first stay in Rock and we were not disappointed. Slipway 17 is without doubt the finest property we have stayed in over all those years. The views looking out onto the ever-changing Camel Estuary were mesmerising and the accommodation ticked all the boxes and more. The owners clearly know how to welcome guests and make them feel at home and we hope to return next year. Thank you.

We look forward to coming again

Thank you for sharing your lovely home. We were very impressed by the decor and attention to detail. I particularly liked the chameleon light in the bedroom! We had lovely weather and some great beach walks. We would recommend the lobster salad at Fresh from the Sea on the outskirts of Port Isaac. We also had a lovely meal at Outlaws in Port Isaac, definitely worth a visit. We look forward to coming again.

Immaculate house

2 more excellent weeks in this immaculate house. 1 week of summer and 1 week of autumn. Thanks for having us!


Wow! What an amazing house – so beautifully done and perfect for us – 2 x grandparents + family of four. We have been coming to Rock for years and love every season. Highlights always include The Mariners, walks along the beach and into the sand dunes, ferry to Padstow for sweets and pasties! This time on a rainy day we tried Pirate Golf + the aquarium in Newquay – highly recommend! We’ll definitely be back, thank you!

I loved the property. It was a warm and cosy haven from what is at the moment a hectic time for me. Everything looked immaculate and the setup was perfect to relax and take a break.

Beautifully presented house

Number 17 is a beautifully presented house. Stylish and up to date, with everything one needs including a very good gas bbq. Lovely kitchen, dining and living area with great views over the estuary and boats. Very comfortable bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and hot water at all times. Our two grandsons enjoyed the Monopoly, played over 3 evenings! Would love to return. And thank you for a very nice welcome pack.

Will definitely return
