“Great stay with a fantastic view.”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Have just returned after a fantastic stay at the Rock House. Had a wedding to attend at Polhorn Fort & after looking on the internet for properties near the venue we found the Rock House. On opening the front door we knew we had chosen the right property, very spacious, clean & what can I say about the views other than stunning! The pool/table tennis table kept us all entertained. Everything was perfect, this will definately be at the top of our list for future holidays in Cornwall.

“Glad we didn't book anywhere else!”
Reviewed 10 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The first thing to say about Rock House is do not attempt to take your car all the way down the extremely narrow lane. Enter the lane with your car by all means but stop before the small bridge to unload etc. Rock House is only few yards past the bridge. Once unloaded, we took our car to the car park in the middle of the village. It’s a fairly secure car park behind a barrier and from memory it’s £22 per week. Its a couple of minutes walk back to Rock House.

Kingsand and Cawsand are right next to each other and you are able to walk from one to the other easily. There are three pubs in Kingsand and one in Cawsand along with a large hotel. Kingsand does have a village shop that sells most things. It’s open from 7am – 7pm

On entering Rock House we immediately become aware of just how spacious this house is. It is very tastefully decorated and clean with lots of extras left for our use.

The lounge is massive with two settees and an armchair plus dining table and chairs. The lounge also has a pool table / table tennis available. The owner had left a number of books / games for our use.

The kitchen was large and also had a table and chairs in it right by the windows overlooking the small bay and Plymouth Sound. It had every utensil that we needed during our week. It even has an Ipod docking station!

All the bedrooms were lovely with the master having an en-suite. It did take us a couple of days to work out the en-suite “dimmer” switch!

The quick route to the village is to leave via the back gate and along the sea front. The nearest pub, The Devonport Inn is less than a two minute walk. All the four pubs in Cawsand and Kingsand do excellent food but you must book a table in advance.

The most memourable thing about Rock House are the views from the lounge, kitchen and master bedrooms.....they are just suburb!!!

All in all, Rock House was the perfect base for us to explore Cornwall and we wouldn’t hesitate in going back
