Cornwall - Rock

Rock is a coastal village in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is situated opposite Padstow on the northeast bank of the River Camel estuary. The village is in the civil parish of St Minver Lowlands approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) north west of Wadebridge.  Rock is popular with holidaymakers and is a well-established  centre for water sports including dinghy racing, waterskiing, windsurfing, and sailing. Rock Sailing Club's headquarters, in a converted warehouse on a wharf, is a local landmark.
The Black Tor Ferry operates across the river to the town of Padstow, and this is a major source of tourist traffic through Rock. The early 21st century has seen extensive building work and increased prosperity for Rock. There are a large number of holiday homes, as well as a number of retail outlets. Rock is also home to Sharp's Brewery, an independent real ale brewery established in the mid 1890s.
Rock has been referred to as 'Britain's Saint-Tropez' and the 'Kensington of Cornwall'due to its popularity with affluent holidaymakers.
Affluent visitors such as Mohamed Al-Fayed and Jay Kay of Jamiroquai often arrive by helicopter.
