Rock offers a mix of traditional, mostly detached buildings alongside contemporary architecture. Expect to pay a premium for waterside properties with sea views, with lower prices achieveable as you head further inland towards the village. Rock itself incorporates; Porthilly, Stoptide, Splatt, Penmayne, Pityme, Tredrizzick and St Minver.
The civil parish of St Minver is divided into St Minver Highlands (to the north and east) and St Minver Lowlands (to the west). The combined parish is bounded on the south and west by the estuary of the River Camel, on the north by the Atlantic coast, and on the east by the parishes of St Endellion and St Kew. The principal villages in St Minver Lowlands are Rock, Trebetherick and Polzeath, while St Minver Highlands encompasses the main villages of St Minver, Tredrizzick, part of Polzeath and New Polzeath. Both parishes benefit from a Neigbourhood Development Plan that serves to enable both a desirable second home market to flourish, whilst preserving the balance of a vibrant, main residence community.
