Rather than go through Wadebridge to get to Rock, take the ferry. Very regular service and lovely scenery on route. Great walks across the headland too and lovely beaches.

Regular and convenient with modern ferry boats using simple roll-on roll-off ramps. So this ferry is ideal for prams, dogs, wheelchairs, bikes and those who need a slope as opposed to awkward leap of faith into a typical boat.

This little ferry between Rock and Padstow is brilliant and saves a considerable drive to Wadebridge and on round to Padstow. A great service.

At low tide you get dropped off on the sand bar and walk half a mile along the beach. We had a fab time as we had our dogs and had a great time walking with them. Definitely would do it again.

Just a very easy and cheap way to get to Rock without driving, no queue for either ferry and only £4 return

Yes it's a landing craft, so the bow opens flat. Seats are benches around the side, so easy to sit on.
