WATERSIDE 16C PRIVATE RETREAT. BOAT, GARDEN. FABULOUS VIEWS AND NO NEIGHBOURS!

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Helford - Rock Cottage Helford River

Discover the secret coves/beaches, walk, row, kayak, fish, BBQ, relax! Sleeps 6.

Idyllic, unique and more than 400 years old, that's our riverside holiday home, Rock Cottage. Here, away from the crowds and with a wonderful ever-changing landscape from the house and garden, couples or a family of up to six can enjoy peace and quiet with freedom and space around them. Your only neighbours are the birds on the creek, in the garden and the wildlife you will see in the meadows and woodland - there is no one else here or any other properties in view.

Discover the secrets of the oak wooded and calm tidal waters of Mawgan Creek in the rowing dinghy provided. You can have this all to yourself for a short break, week or longer. Our Guest Books are full of happy times dating back to the early 1960s when the Dandy family started to welcome guests.

Available for most of the year, Rock Cottage will keep you warm and snug as there is efficient central heating with new radiators throughout. The property has been refurbished for 2014 and now offers a light and modern kitchen with all you need, a relaxing comfortable lounge, convenient ground floor family bathroom as well as three lovely bedrooms including the separate Garden Room. There are unique views of woodland, meadows, the large garden and the Helford River from each room. You will find this exceptional property beautifully presented throughout with easy to operate facilities as well as WiFi and everything waiting for you.

Standing completely alone within one acre of secluded and delightful gardens, the grounds are bordered by the private woodland and the river on two sides. It is set on a promontory at the head of the Mawgan Creek in a location which has remained unchanged for centuries. Combine this tranquillity with some boating, fishing, beachcombing, gentle walking or simply just relax.

Stay during early springtime when the grass banks come alive with thousands of Cornish primroses and daffodils grace the borders and pots, Wander through the English 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, without doubt, something special, 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 with change of linen, and towels is provided 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 during June, July and August weeks.

Two well trained dogs are welcome at Rock Cottage. For reasons of hygiene and consideration of other guests, we prefer that dogs are kept out of bedrooms and the carpeted area.

Hello, my name is Linda Dandy and I am privileged to assist with the managing of Rock Cottage which has been in the Dandy Family for 60 years. On a holiday to the area in 1954, Rock Cottage was ‘discovered’ by my husband’s parents, Eleanor (Peggy) and Leslie Dandy. They immediately recognised the special nature of this 16th century cottage and its unique location, which stands alone within an acre of land bordering the Helford River on two sides. Later that year the property was purchased at auction for their retirement.

Linda Dandy purchased this cottage in 1954

At the time of purchase, the cottage was condemned as unfit for human habitation and was also Grade II listed because it was then the ‘only recorded example of a traditional Cornish cottage built on a projecting rock foundation’. There was no mains water or electricity, so rainwater was collected for washing and oil lamps and candles provided the only illumination. Drinking water was collected from a nearby spring. A comprehensive renovation programme took place and this was completed by January 1956. The main building was demolished to ground floor ceiling level except for the chimney end which was preserved. The traditional cob (mud, straw and stone) walls retained where it was possible. A Bathroom was created from the old Scullery, the Sitting Room extended and a new Kitchen constructed.

The Garden Room was formerly a separate cottage and had been altered in the early 1900s to become a Meeting Room for game shooting for the Trelowarren Estate. Both families living in the cottages’ had shared the semi-detached privy with their own pathway to it. This building has been preserved and still exists at the bottom of the garden. It must have been quite tricky to keep a candle lit in order to see where you were going! An 1876 map also shows a boathouse and the original two stone walls of this still remain.

The objective of the renovations was to modernise the cottage but still retain its character and originality as much as possible. We believe this has been achieved and many guests think so too. It is a superb waterside retreat and there is nowhere quite like it!

Rock Cottage is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with very convenient and easy access to many of the local amenities. However, it retains a tranquil and idyllic outlook. The Dandy Family are pleased to share the wonders of the Mawgan Creek and the peaceful atmosphere of Rock Cottage with you where a sincere and friendly welcome beckons.

ROCK ON ! ( COTTAGE )

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first visit to Rock Cottage but something tells me it won’t be our last.
The cottage itself is picturesque set in a stunning location, immaculately furnished and very comfortable, the pictures truly do not do it justice. The fresh flowers Linda arranged throughout were lovely as were the treats laid out in the kitchen – what a welcome!
The garden is well established and wraps around the whole cottage which means if the sun is shining you will always find a sunny spot at any time of day. All sorts of wildlife visit including Dave the friendly robin and Mr and Mrs Pheasant looking for breakfast, lunch or an evening meal! The most spectacular thing about this cottage is the view of the creek and walking down to the jetty to find Peggy waiting for you to row off and have some fun (tides permitting of course). Hubby also launched his windsurfer from the jetty and although a bit tamer than the sea he could leave the windsurfer safe and sound every day without having to rig each time. We ate out on the patio each evening, even if it rained, having taken a table top heater and gazebo – we really couldn’t waste those views.
The Ship Inn is only a ten minute walk away, the new owners have only been there 12 weeks but have already established the restaurant with fabulous food – best to book in advance. Be warned the pub is closed Sunday evening and all day Monday.
Local attractions that we enjoyed, The Lizard, Coverack, Helford Village, Gunwalloe beach and Cadgwith Cove, a beautiful fishing village where we bought fish for our supper.
We have had a fantastic holiday and thanks to Linda and Robin for being so friendly and making our stay memorable.

WARM WELCOME AND BEAUTIFUL VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
This lovely comfortable cottage is a great base for a family holiday (we have two adults and two large teenagers). We took our bikes and enjoyed cycling around the quiet local lanes (plenty of hills to keep you fit). There is also fantastic walking nearby, both on the coast path and inland. The excellent village shop is within easy walking / cycling distance and we didn't need to visit a supermarket for the whole week. The village pub is good though be aware the food is geared towards a smart restaurant style, quality and price. Other, more "pubby" pubs are not far away (The Shipwrights Arms in Helford was a personal favourite) .The take-away fish and chips from the village pub were superb and we'd recommend these if you've just arrived after a long journey - they come with, ketchup, vinegar, tartar sauce and even a slice of lemon!

The cottage itself is in excellent condition and exactly as described on the website. The highlights for us were the lovely terrace outside with fantastic view of Mawgan creek, rowing expeditions in the dinghy and the well-equipped kitchen. Service from the owner is superb. A tray of goodies was there when we arrived and we had a thorough briefing on the features of the property. There was also a very good handbook with information on everything from use of the dinghy to how to operate the dishwasher. We had a minor problem with the hot water boiler and the owner dealt with it the same day (there was a back up immersion heater and an electric shower too so plenty of redundancy!). The owner will also bake and deliver fresh bread on request. Although a minor country road passes the cottage there is very little traffic at night and the terrace area is very peaceful.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to friends or family (but please don't all book at once as we'd like to go back again).

HOLIDAY IN PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
Holiday at Rock Cottage? Don't miss it! You will be part of an atmospheric, impressive 19th-century-landscape-painting while you stay in a comfortable, snuggly, cosy house with a long history. Unforgettable the view of the Creek and it is such a pleasure to spend time in the marvellous garden. Though Rock Cottage is just perfect and you really don't want to leave it, nevertheless there are a lot of things to do or to see nearby: woodland walks, the South West Coast Path, beaches, coves, gardens, art and culture... And each day its's a pleasure to return to Rock Cottage, owned by the most affectionate hosts you can imagine. What a warm welcome with home made scones and bread... Holiday at Rock Cottage? Absolutely!
Ferien in Rock Cottage? Bloß nicht verpassen! Grandios die Landschaft, in die das bezaubernde, ebenso gemütliche wie komfortabel ausgestattete Haus mit Geschichte eingebettet ist. Großartig und unvergesslich der Blick auf den Meeresarm und die Tierwelt, die sich hier tummelt. Es kommt einem vor, als sei man Teil eines dieser stimmungsvollen Landschaftsgemälde aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Obwohl man das geschmackvoll eingerichtete Haus und den herrlichen Garten drumherum eigentlich nicht wirklich verlassen möchte, ist Rock Cottage doch zugleich ein idealer Standort, um Cornwall, vor allem aber auch die Lizard-Halbinsel, zu erkunden. Alles liegt direkt vor der Haustür: Gartenparadiese und Wälder, Kunst und Kultur quer durch die Jahrtausende, kleine Buchten, endlose Strände und vieles mehr... Keinesfalls versäumen: eine Wanderung auf dem South West Coast Path, einem der schönsten Fernwanderwege der Welt. Und jeden Tag kehrt man so gerne zurück in das kleine Paradies mit Namen "Rock Cottage". Das übrigens von den nettesten Gastgebern betreut wird, die man sich nur vorstellen kann. Köstliche Scones, selbstgebackenes Brot zum Empfang - eine herzlichere Begrüßung in einem Zuhause auf Zeit lässt sich kaum denken. Ferien in Rock Cottage? Unbedingt!

Owner's Response: This couple clearly found the two day drive from their home in Germany well worthwhile and Rock Cottage met all expectations.

We are really pleased to receive this complimentary bilingual review. Thank you and see you again Birgit and Hans-Willi.

BRILLIANT

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a fantastic week at Rock Cottage. The views from the accommodation are breathtaking and you could have a great time just staying in! Saying that there is so much to do and see round and about that it would be a shame not to explore. We were blessed with good weather and visited The Lizard, Porthcurno, Cape Cornwall and Coverack Cove to name just a few.
Received a very warm welcome from Linda and the home made bread and cream teas was very well received after a long journey. We would definitely go back.

FANTASTIC COTTAGE

  • 5 out of 5
Another wonderful holiday at Rock Cottage - thank you Linda and Robin for the warm welcome on arrival, lovely home made goodies and beautiful flowers.
The cottage is very well equipped and so comfortable - the beds ensure a good night's sleep.
Wonderful garden and woodland - so much to explore and taking Peggy out was such a highlight as the peace and quiet of the creek is sublime.
So many lovely places to explore within such easy access - Helford, Loe bar, Gunwalloe, Mullion, Coverack and Kynance cove to name but a few... 
Great food at Ship Inn Mawgan, Ship Inn Porthleven, New yard restaurant Trelowarren and the local stores at Mawgan have some real treasures.
Thoroughly recommended for a relaxing holiday in great surroundings.

PERFECT AWAY FROM IT ALL HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Rock Cottage, we wanted somewhere a little bit special and we were not disappointed. The cottage is cosy and immaculate and equipped with everything you could possibly need along with lovely little touches such as flowers in every room and special treats waiting for us upon our arrival. The cottage sits in its own grounds with beautiful gardens and a woodland (full of bluebells whilst we were there). The gardens slope down to the shore of the estuary with views that are absolutely amazing and constantly changing with the tides bringing different birds which we watched through the binoculars. We went out rowing in Peggy exploring the creeks and even managed to row to Gweek where we had a picnic sat in the boat. The location is perfect for exploring the Lizard, we especially enjoyed walking on the coastal path and thought the Kynance Cove to Trinity Lighthouse section was stunning, St Ives is a short drive away and worth a visit but you really don't need to travel far to find lovely walks and villages to explore. We will definitely return to this cottage again and stay longer next time. Thank you Linda for your wonderful hospitality (and the yummy home made bread). Susan & Andrew, Yorkshire.

Rock Cottage stands completely alone within an acre of private grounds which border the Helford River on two sides and features an unrivalled and elevated panoramic view of the Mawgan Creek. There is nowhere quite like it!

VILLAGE AMENITIES:

The village of Mawgan is a short 10 minute walk from Rock Cottage. Here you will find Mawgan Stores which is the nearest local shop and stocked with just about all you may need during your holiday. It has a Post Office as well as a 'free to use' cash machine. On your way you will pass the 12c Church of St Mawgan in Meneage and The Ship Inn. Many of our guests choose to dine at this well established pub with restaurant or simply stop by for a local ale and then amble back along the lane. In the opposite direction from Rock Cottage, if you cross the ancient stone bridge at Gear and proceed up the hill towards St Martin, you will reach the Gear Farm Pasty shop. The Cornish pasties are made on the premises and are perfect for a lunch time treat. The shop also sells a range of fish caught by a local fisherman.

For children there is the Mawgan village recreation ground which has a newly created play area for toddlers and older children to enjoy. At the Grange Fruit Farm there is a pitch and putt, giant skittles and a sandpit. Next door is the Old Withy Garden nursery which is well worth a visit for those who enjoy gardening.

LOCAL PLACES TO EAT:

As well as the Ship Inn, locally there is the New Yard Restaurant and the Grange Country Kitchen in Mawgan, The Black Swan at Gweek, The Prince of Wales at Newtown St Martin, New Inn at Mannacan as well as The Halzephron at Gunwalloe. Helford village has the newly renovated Shipwrights Arms.

A FEW THINGS TO DO:

Within a car ride of about 10 minutes is the Cornish Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, and Flambards Theme Park and the Helston Folk Museum. Helston Town is worth a visit and has a few specialist shops as well as supermarkets.

During the main holiday season take the foot ferry from Helford to Helford Passage and then visit the fabulous gardens at Trebah or enjoy a spot of lunch first at the Ferryboat Inn. Do a coast path walk around Lizard Point where you may see Seals, Dolphins and the Cornish Choughs. Safe and sandy beaches to visit at Poldhu, Kynance Cove, Gunwalloe and Polurrian; fishing coves at Mullion and Cadgwith. Historic NT properties and gardens at Glendurgan, St Michael's Mount, Penrose Estate and Trengwainton. Falmouth Maritime Museum, St Ives for art galleries, tin mine tours at Geevor and Poldark.

During your stay we can arrange horse riding, sailing, kayaking as well as the thrill of a deep sea fishing trip. Rock Cottage has easy access to an area which has a great number of things to do with a good choice of pubs and restaurants to suit all occasions.

Notes:
Access to the river, which may be unsuitable for some, is by the garden or through our woodland and leads to stone steps and a large wooden staging where the old boathouse once stood. Moored on a running line from the rocky foreshore is 'Peggy', our sturdy 3.5M rowing dinghy. The boat is available from Easter to the end of October. A Tide Table is provided and tides give about 3+ hours either side of high water. You may fish from the boat or jetty. Bring your kayaks and canoes and enjoy the wonders of the Mawgan Creek. These can be left on the private jetty. Rock Cottage is managed and prepared by Linda & Robin who live 5 minutes away. Should you require assistance, we can be contacted by a free 'phone call. If you stay with us for more than 7 nights, you will receive a complimentary house clean and of course linen change. On arrival, you will find your beds made and everything ready so you can relax and enjoy your holiday from the start!
