Overview

About the property

Fishing, bird watching, boating, beaches/coves, walks, gardens. Sleeps up to six

Rock Cottage has stood alone on a promontory for over 400 years. It commands a stunning, peaceful and ever-changing view of the Helford River with its surrounding woodland in an area of outstanding natural beauty. With no neighbours or other properties in view, and bordering the water on two sides, one can enjoy complete privacy and tranquillity. The acre of terraced gardens lead to a woodland and the private foreshore, where 'Peggy', our sturdy rowing dinghy is moored.

This homely cottage has full central heating with radiators, three bedrooms including the separate Garden Room and comfortably accommodates a maximum of six persons only. It offers a new, light and modern kitchen/diner, fully equipped to high standards with all you need and the added bonus of a fabulous view! Relax in the refurbished, carpeted and most comfortable, beamed sitting room with its luxury sofa and arm chairs, cushioned window seats, wall lighting and the original large inglenook fireplace. Conveniently situated on the ground floor is the family bathroom. From the sitting room, a fine wooden staircase leads to the landing, master and children's bedroom all having beautiful pitch pine floors with large rugs. A couple of paces across the slate courtyard is the spacious third bedroom. All rooms enjoy lovely views of the garden, woodland, surrounding countryside and the Mawgan Creek.

Upon arrival, you will find this exceptional property beautifully presented, very clean, with easy to use facilities and everything in its place. The internet service is fast, reliable and included in the rent. Rock Cottage is personally prepared by us, the Owners, Linda and Robin, who live in Mawgan.

From early springtime the grass banks and woodland come alive with thousands of Cornish primroses, spotted orchids and English bluebells. Daffodils grace borders and pots. You can always find somewhere to sit or look at a different aspect from the terraced garden which is well tended, planted with camelias, hydrangeas, and other shrubs. When autumn approaches, the beech and oak woodlands reveal another splendour.

Children find lots to do here and enjoy a game of swing ball, playing hide and seek in our woodland, crab fishing with a line and bacon from the jetty 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. Some guests enjoy fishing for Grey Mullet, Sea Bass and flat fish either from the shore, or out in 'Peggy'. She is available (weather and tides permitting) from Easter until the end of October for our guests to experience an adventure on the upper reaches of the Helford River.

Rock Cottage has an excellent location for visiting many places on the Lizard Peninsula. Family holidays, special occasions, anniversaries or a couple wanting to escape from the daily routine, choose this haven.

"Memorable, relaxing, so comfortable, everything in its place, very clean and well-appointed with great attention to detail, just perfect ..... simply a wonderful holiday," what our guests say and can expect when they stay at Rock Cottage.

About Linda Dandy

Hello from Linda Dandy. In 1999 Robin and I 'upped sticks' and moved to Mawgan with our two children, who were youngsters at the time. We are fortunate to live only five minutes away from Rock Cottage and are dedicated to looking after all our guests and providing them with a first class service and of course fully maintaining the property. For me, it is a real privilege to assist with the managing of Rock Cottage which has been in the Dandy Family for over 60 years. On a holiday to the area in 1954, Rock Cottage was ‘discovered’ by Robin'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

Why Linda Dandy chose Lizard Peninsula

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is worth travelling across the Atlantic to enjoy this magical place, where the family, including grandchildren, and friends wear 24 hour smiles. Thank you Robin & Linda for making your cottage available to us all once more. Affectionately Joyce & John. Mexico City



Had a brilliant relaxing time at Rock Cottage. The setting is wonderful and the cottage has all you could want ... and more. Will recommend here to all our friends. Thank you for all the welcoming touches. Susan & Dave, Ayrshire.



I've had a great week here and I have enjoyed rowing in Peggy and crab fishing off the jetty. (I caught 10 but they all escaped). I have also enjoyed just relaxing and my bed was so comfortable. Thank you so much. Jessica, St Albans (aged 15)

A Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired couple from the USA. who found the property description to be accurate - even more private and charming than anticipated.

Rock Cottage is a beautiful, private property. There are no neighbors in sight! The charming cottage is well-decorated, well-equipped - kitchen utensils/library - and well-maintained to a high standard. My husband says the cottage is mechanically up-to-date and to a high standard. Because of these things, we feel the rental rate is very reasonable.

The owners were nearby to answer any questions with kindness and helpfulness.

The cottage was so idyllic we had difficulty in leaving to sightsee. Even on rainy days the sitting room was warm and cozy.

The location is an easy in/out for day trips, yet it is secluded.

We didn't use Peggy, the dinghy, as much as we liked; however, the creek/river is magical and begs for discovery paddles.

We enjoyed a meal at the Prince of Wales in St. Martin. We were unable to dine at the local Ship Inn but enjoyed their frozen entrees (brand name Freshh) available at Mawgan Stores which is a treasure trove of goodies.

Helford River and its environs are an area of outstanding natural beauty and world class. Rock Cottage is a most comfortable way to enjoy it.

We would certainly recommend it to a friend or relative. And, we would certainly return to this special place and delightful cottage.

memorable holiday

  • 5 of 5

Such a perfect location - everything you need within 15 miles or just walk from the cottage through the woods. In fact, you didn't need to leave the garden - just sit and enjoy the tranquillity. So quiet, with just she sound of woodpeckers and curlews. Beds were very comfortable and 'take away fish and chips' from the Ship Inn were a must. Thank you Linda - I feel better for staying in your cottage.

Fabulous Cottage with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

This is the 7th time we have stayed at Rock Cottage so you can tell we are fans!!! We never tire of the fabulous views from the garden. The cottage is always clean and bright on arrival and the Welcome Pack is great. If you want night life then this is not for you but if you love sitting in local pubs overlooking the estuary, walking your dogs on the cliff paths and enjoying the peace, quiet and bird song then Rock Cottage is the place for you. Although peaceful it is not isolated and the local village has a great pub and an excellent shop.

See you both again. Linda x

Beautiful character cottage in a truly lovely location with a fabulous river view.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a recent short break in Cornwall to celebrate my 50th birthday. I chose Rock Cottage because I loved the sound of being right on the river with its ever-changing views. I really enjoyed sitting in the garden watching all the bird life - it's an amazing place! We would love to return one day to make use of the rowing boat at the property - we couldn't take it out this time because it's only available from Easter, due to the tides.

Linda, the owner, welcomed us to the cottage, and there were really lovely touches such as fresh flowers, cake/biscuits, and a pint of milk in the fridge. The cottage was beautifully clean too. All-in-all, a lovely base from which to explore The Lizard (or even stay put to enjoy the view.

Owner's Response: I am delighted to receive this splendid review, and thank you Sarah very much! It was a pleasure to meet you and your family, and I was so pleased to hear that everyone loved their stay at Rock Cottage. Good to know the boys enjoyed body boarding at nearby Poldhu Cove, even though the water temperature is a bit on the chilly side. It would be lovely to see you all again as you were really appreciative guests. Linda

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:

Within a short 10 minute walk from Rock Cottage you will find the thriving Mawgan Stores, your nearest local shop, which is well 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 dine at this very popular, 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 as well as the pizzas which they cook in wood-fired oven. The shop also sells a range of fish caught by a local fisherman.

Children can enjoy the excellent facilities at the Mawgan recreation ground with its newly created play area and picnic seating. Recently installed for the adults, is a state of the art outdoor gym facility - great for a family workout!

LOCAL PLACES TO EAT:

As well as the Ship Inn, locally there is the New Yard Restaurant and Zucchini's in Mawgan, The Black Swan at Gweek, The Prince of Wales at Newtown St Martin as well as The Halzephron at Gunwalloe and the Shipwrights Arms in Helford. At Porthleven there is Rick Steins Restaurant, Kota, Kota Kai, Amelies, Naughty but Ice, and pubs too.

A FEW THINGS TO DO:

Within a car ride of about 10 minutes is the Cornish Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, 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 across 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, Basking Sharks, 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. Other gardens to visit are the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project.

Falmouth is a great choice for a day out with the Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle and of course boat trips to St Mawes. St Ives and Newlyn is a must for art lovers. If you have been following the recent Poldark series, you may like to see some of the mines where filming took place at Botallack to Levant. Whilst heading out this way, go to Lands End and stop off at Porthgwarra beach - it's beautiful!

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.
