Make a holiday cottage in Longrock your home away from home

Situated near the western tip of Cornwall, Longrock is an ideal holiday destination filled with sun, sea, and sand. Visitors can enjoy lazy days on the beach, stunning walking trails, and plenty of great scenery in and around this section of Cornwall. Longrock is a small village with basic amenities including shops and a pub, but Penzance is less than two miles away. Located close to the A30, it is a perfect place to use as a base for discovering the bustling little towns, picturesque fishing villages, beautiful beaches and attractions of South Cornwall. HomeAway offers a good selection of Longrock holiday cottages well suited to groups of all sizes, including couples and large families.

Holiday cottages in Longrock enjoy close proximity to the beach, with some even offering sea views. Amenities such as internet access, large gardens, and the ability to bring along the family pet make these rentals really feel like home. At £280 - £600 per week, Longrock holiday homes and cottages average slightly less than rentals in larger coastal towns in Cornwall like St. Ives.

Things to do

-Beaches: The beach at Longrock is the main attraction in the area. The two-mile stretch between Penzance and Marazion is characterised by sand and small pebbles, making it an ideal spot to sunbathe. Calm and shallow, the beach is also well suited for swimming and is very popular with families and pet owners. Toilet and café facilities are located nearby.

-Outdoor activities: With such warm and sunny weather in Cornwall, it’s a wonder why anyone decides to remain indoors. Longrock holiday cottages put holidaymakers right in the centre of an area filled with excellent walking and cycling trails. Longrock makes up a part of the South West Coastal Path, and is located along the two-mile path between Marazion and Penzance. The path has been rated as an easy walk and is suitable for both wheelchairs and pushchairs.

-Family attractions: Keeping the whole family happy on holiday can sometimes be a challenge, but not for visitors staying in a Longrock holiday home. This part of South West Cornwall is full of family attractions, like the Land’s End Visitor Centre. Just 20 minutes from Longrock, the centre offers plenty of interesting information for adults as well as a King Arthur’s Quest experience for kids. There is also a 4D and motion theatre experience, as well as a children’s farm where families can feed and interact with animals. If there’s a preference to be in a larger town with more opportunities for family entertainment, HomeAway also offers holiday cottages in Newlyn.

-Museums: Longrock holidaymakers have plenty of choice when it comes to museums. Neighbouring Penzance is just a few miles away and is home to the Newlyn Art Gallery and the Penlee House Gallery and Museum, both of which specialise in local art created in the area over the past 150 years.

-Food and drink: Cornish cuisine is among the most unique in the UK and can be sampled in restaurants and cafés in and around holiday homes in Longrock. The most popular dish to try is undoubtedly the Cornish pasty, though Cornish dairy products like clotted cream, fudge, and ice cream are also not to be missed.

Weather in Longrock

Longrock enjoys fantastic weather, particularly in the summer. High temperatures from June to September regularly breach the 20°C mark and are accompanied by relatively low levels of rain. Winters are chilly and rainy, with low temperatures sometimes dipping below freezing. February is the coldest month on average, while July and August are the warmest months.

Travel to Longrock

The easiest way to reach Longrock is by car. The village is located just off the A30, which can be taken directly from Exeter. It is also possible to take a train to nearby Penzance rail station. The station is located just over a mile away from the centre of Longrock and can be reached on foot via the scenic South West Coastal Path. National coach services also operate to Penzance.

Fantastic week in a beautiful Porthleven cottage

5 of 5
The cottage has absolutely everything you could need! It is fully equipped from top to bottom even down to some food and all linen! Beautifully laid out and really comfortable. Only 5 minutes walk to the harbour. Everything in the cottage was high quality with really good WiFi and audio/visual although we didn't get around to using it. For a location perspective you are a very short drive from some of the most spectacular coastal walks in the UK. Can't fault this property...fantastic!!

Lovely setting. Very clean, modern and comfortable, with everything you could need provided. Excellent communication from owners and the little extras were much appreciated.
