Rock Cottage is a wonderful base for a holiday in Cornwall. The view of the creek at different times during the day will both delight and relax you.
The cottage itself is excellent, furnished to a high standard and has everything you could possibly need for the stay, including "Peggy" a rowing boat moored at your own jetty, so you can go out on the creek, life jackets are provided of course.
We spent many a happy hour on the jetty catching crabs, and there are hundreds to catch, so no one gets disappointed.
Linda, the owner was on hand via phone or email if we needed her and simply let us get on with a wonderful stay, we loved the sweet peas and flowers in the cottage, there were lots of lovely little touches like this.
The location of the cottage is great, just outside of Mawgan village and you can easily reach lots of interesting places within a half hour drive, we managed St Ives, Porthleven, Coverack, Goonhilly Earth Station and nature reserve, plus a bit further and you have Pedn Vounder beach (well worth the difficult cliff descent) and St Michael's Mount.
The Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek is less than 10 minutes away, and you get to go back for free too.
There is a Sainsbury's near Helston , just a short drive away plus Mawgan Stores in the village to, if you want local produce.
Give this place a try and you will not be disapointed, we have returned home relaxed and with happy memories of Rock Cottage and Cornwall.
We had a nice, clean and spacious cottage with a fully equipped kitchen a terrace and a small garden. The cottage is located 10 minutes from Falmouth but in a quiet but central location, from where you could easily and quickly get to all regions of Cornwall. Very nice and we will definitely book again.
