We've admired the setting of this cottage for many years on our trips to the Helford. And we eventually got to try it out. Wow. We weren't disappointed. The cottage is beautifully presented with what looks like a brand new kitchen and bathroom. It was filled with fresh flowers and goodies on our arrival, and was absolutely spotless. The kitchen window looks right down Mawgan Creek. This was my office view for a few days, and thankfully (or maybe not!) the wi-fi was good enough for many lengthy zoom calls. I spent many hours watching the birds feed from the bird table outside that window when the video calls got boring; Linda had very thoughtfully left bird food and we weren't disappointed by the many visitors. The kitchen was very well equipped for people like us who love to cook with local produce (so many rentals aren't). There were even scales, and a rolling pin! The bed was very comfy. If you love the constant change of a tidal river, you'll love it. Can't imagine how amazing it must be in Spring or Summer when the boat is available too. Wonderful. Reviewed 3 Jan 2022
What a fantastic property, I cannot recommend Rock Cottage highly enough! We had the most wonderful week here - everything written about it is 100% true but it's so much more than that. Firstly, the cottage's location is ideal - despite being a very short drive/walk away from Mawgan village, the cottage itself is fantastically private and there's literally nobody in sight in any direction. It has, without question, the best view possible of the tidal river and the wonderfully gnarly trees that line it - we were mesmerised, no matter the time or the weather. The avid bird watcher among us was similarly thrilled by the fabulous variety of feathered friends that were continually present. Secondly, the cottage itself is beautiful. It's in excellent condition and fabulously maintained. We were especially touched by the thoughtfulness of the welcoming scones, cream, home-made bread and many more treats that awaited us after a long journey to Cornwall - thank you so much Linda! Everything we needed was there and in addition there was plenty of space for all of our fulsome paraphernalia. The kitchen's vista is incredible and we spent a great deal of our time there, it really is the heart of the house. Every room in the house is just great, but the Garden Room in particular is also gorgeous and it too has the most spectacular view. Indeed, its being separate from the main cottage made it an ideal retreat for the 13-year old in our party! Finally, the privacy of the cottage really is its selling point for us. There's a great deal of land attached to Rock Cottage, which is so much fun to explore. The main part of the garden is on a significant slope, but the very manageable steps, the charming stepping stones, the different levels, the well-placed benches, the fantastic jetty and the excitement of the neighbouring wood make it an outdoor wonderland. Being able to use Peggy the rowing boat was such a bonus, as was the crabbing equipment. Wetsuits are highly recommended when swimming, but this is true of all British waterways! Also, wellies are essential because of the mud when the tide is out. There is no downside to Rock Cottage whatsoever - it's wonderful. The tides mean there's a limit on how much time you're able to spend in the water. Happily, however, the mud flats are gorgeous to look at and the plethora of stunning Cornish beaches are about 20 minutes' drive away, depending on which direction you choose. We'll definitely return! Published 8 Aug 2021
Pristine property in a hideaway location with extensive grounds including private waterfront and jetty. Rock Cottage surpassed all our expectations. The ever changing views from the kitchen and garden of the tidal river are mesmerising. If you can tear yourself away from the well equipped, cosy cottage, there is so much to do and see within easy reach. The nearby Ship Inn does excellent food in the evenings which is a 10-15 minute walk into the village. There is also a well equipped local shop here. 15 minutes in the other direction from the cottage is Gear Farm. Their award winning Cornish Pasties are not to be missed! Perfect to take on a hike as they stay warm for hours. We enjoyed exploring and managed to see all the bits of Cornwall we came to see, and a lot more from this base. The hosts have thought of everything and the treats on arrival were very much appreciated! We will return. Published 21 Oct 2019
