Helston, Cornwall, England
Rock Cottage is a traditional Cornish cottage built many centuries ago and is situated in an AONB with a private foreshore, jetty, woodland, and large grounds. Its set in an incredible location sitting above the Mawgan Creek of the Helford River, where our boat is moored for you to enjoy. There are no neighbours in sight, but you are only a short walk away from Mawgan village.

This was our second Christmas at Rock Cottage. First time was 2004, and it was brilliant. This time round it was even better, the owners having made a number of improvements. Can't beat the location, right beside a tidal river with an everchanging view. Local...More

Linda looked after us superbly and nothing was too much trouble. The house was a home from home! Clean, cosy and welcoming - fresh scones, clotted cream and strawberries and jam were waiting! We truly wanted for nothing and the kids had a wonderful time...More

About the neighbourhood
The village of Mawgan is 10 to 15 minutes on foot from the cottage where you will find a very useful convenient shop selling all you may need during your stay. The Ship Inn is a great place for an evening dinner out, take away fish and chips or just for a local ale or two. Whilst in the village visit the St Mawgan-in-Meneage church.

Other places to eat are at the nearby Trelowarren Estate, The Gweek Inn, The Prince of Wales (large garden and very friendly), and an extensive menu. Pop in for a pasta at Zucchinis in Gweek and of course there is the Halzephron on the way to the beach. This is just a handful of places to choose.
Gweek has the Seal Sanctuary, Helston (famous for Flora Day) has Flambards for a great day out.
