On the Helford River, near Mawgan, an idyllic privately owned and unique 16th century cottage awaits you. Rock Cottage is a haven, truly picturesque, a very special place for your holiday and has been in our family for 60 years. There is nowhere quite like it.
If you desire complete privacy, somewhere with no neighbours, owners or other properties in sight, just glorious unspoilt views in peaceful surroundings, then Rock Cottage has this!
The serene and ever-changing landscape together with the magnificent elevated views, private foreshore with access to the river, where our robust rowing dinghy 'Peggy' awaits, will instantly captivate. Whatever the season or state of the tide, the scene is hypnotic.
If you can tear yourself away from here, within an easy short 10 minute drive, you will soon discover some of the finest sandy beaches in the area, wonderful gardens, the SW coastal footpaths, good places to eat and drink and lots more.
Rock Cottage has full central heating and accommodates up to six persons. It has been refurbished for 2014 and now offers a light and modern kitchen with all you need, a relaxing comfortable lounge, convenient ground floor bathroom as well as three lovely bedrooms including the separate Garden Room. There are fantastic views of its woodland, large garden and the Helford River from each room. You will find the property beautifully presented throughout with easy to operate facilities as well as WiFi and waiting for you. Our many excellent reviews from previous guests, say it all!
The property stands completely alone in one acre of terraced and well kept grounds. Its large, secluded garden, borders the water on two sides. There are no intrusions, and it's set on a promontory at the head of the Mawgan Creek amidst peaceful surroundings where time almost stands still and a myriad of water birds display themselves as the gentle tidal waters ebb and flow. Combine this tranquillity with some boating, fishing, beachcombing, gentle walking or simply just relax.
Stay during March, April and May, when the grass banks at Rock Cottage come alive with thousands of Cornish primroses and daffodils grace the borders and pots, Wander through the bluebell woodland. During the summer months, see the garden filled with geraniums, fuchsias and bedding plants and as autumn approaches, the many varieties of hydrangea change to a deeper colour whilst the beech and oak trees reveal another splendour.
Children of all ages find lots to do whether it's a game of swing ball in the garden or playing 'hide n seek' in our woodland, crab fishing with a line and bacon or racing their toy sail boats along the shore. For those who love to be on the water, bring your kayaks and canoes, launch these from our jetty and explore the tidal creeks. If you have a small boat, let us know and we can provide a mud mooring for you at no extra charge. Some guests enjoy fishing for Grey Mullet and Sea Bass either from the boat or anchoring at a nearby point. However, you may choose to just take it easy and rest in the recliners, dabble with water colours and do some bird watching. The view from the patio is something special and a great place to sit and enjoy your barbequed fish freshly caught from the creek or from a sea fishing boat trip.
The rental is fully inclusive of: electricity, central heating oil, bed linen, bath sheets & hand towels, bathrobes, luxury toiletries, all household essentials, WiFi, rowing dinghy (of course, life jackets in various sizes are included), mooring for a small boat, cot and high chair and BBQ. As part of the service, a full house clean and change of linen, towels, etc is included for stays longer than seven nights. All costs are included in the rent, so there are no extra or hidden charges. Reduction for when a couple only are staying at Rock Cottage.
