Wonderful stay in Rockport

5 of 5
We loved our week in Rockport! Rose's cottage was wonderful - really comfortable and well furnished and full of character. Rose has thought of everything - it really was perfect! The centre of Rockport is a short walk away and we ate in some of the restaurants there- Roy Moore's, Ellen's and Feather & Wedge - all very enjoyable. Restaurants in Gloucester come highly recommended but you have to drive. We enjoyed Front Beach (free as we walked down) other larger beaches charge to park the car- but they are lovely - Good Harbour and Long Beach. We loved cooking at the cottage - the shared outside area and BBQ is wonderful - pleasant and quiet - yet the buzz of Bearskin Neck is about 5 or 10 minutes walk away. We would definitely recommend Periwinkle Cottage and we would love to go back! Rosemary and Colin (Ireland)
