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 well-appointed 16th century waterside retreat is warm and cosy throughout with full central heating and has three bedrooms, which includes the separate garden room, a new and well equipped kitchen where you will enjoy a fabulous view looking down on the creek. The beamed sitting room, with its original cob walls and inglenook, has a luxurious new suite and a relaxing atmosphere.

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 well-appointed 16th century waterside retreat is warm and cosy throughout with full central heating and has three bedrooms, which includes the separate garden room, a new and well equipped kitchen where you will enjoy a fabulous view looking down on the creek. The beamed sitting room, with its original cob walls and inglenook, has a luxurious new suite and a relaxing atmosphere. Bathroom facilities are on the ground floor of the cottage and serve the garden room too. A fine wooden open tread staircase leads to a landing and the master bedroom, and the adjacent children's room. A few paces from the front door is the separate and spacious garden room which is set up for another couple. This large and bright room overlooks the garden and river, has a new fully fitted carpet, wall mounted television as well as two single zip and link beds. When a couple are using this room, and if requested, the beds will be made up as a very large double. This room is not suitable for young children. BT Broadband (wifi) is included in the rent. Good walks, wonderful landscapes, coves and quiet beaches no more than 10 minutes away. During your stay you can visit the area’s beautiful beaches and traditional Cornish harbours, enjoy top attractions such as Heligan Gardens and the Eden Project, and discover stunning views in what is protected an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you want an adventure, go rowing in 'Peggy' our sturdy 3.5M dinghy (available tide and weather permitting) from Easter to end of October, and discover what's living along the shoreline. You may like to fish for Sea Bass, Grey Mullet and more from the private shoreline, the boat or the wooden staging where the old boathouse once stood. Children love to catch the river crabs with line and bacon from here, play in our woodland or enjoy games in the garden. The patio area is perfect for a BBQ and breakfast on a warm sunny morning. Please send an enquiry if you wish to bring a pet to the property. We will accept a maximum of 2 dogs when there are no more than four persons staying in the cottage at any one time. Please read our Terms and Conditions regarding dogs before making a booking. There is a charge of £5 per day per pet. This charge will be added to the quote when appropriate.More

There is nowhere like Rock Cottage. None of the photographs, appealing as they are, do justice to the beauty of the view down the creek - once seen, it leaves a permanent impression on the memory. We were lucky enough to discover Rock Cottage years...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. There is a Chinese restaurant on the outskirts of Gweek and 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.
How to get there
Newquay Airport is only one hour drive away from Rock Cottage. For the nearest railway station, we suggest either Truro (30 minutes drive) or Redruth Station (20 minutes).
