Overview
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Helston, Cornwall, England
Rock Cottage sits in an incredible location above Mawgan Creek on the Helford River. It is completely detached with no neighbours in sight, yet is only a short walk to Mawgan village. The cottage is an idyllic choice for a couple or a small family of up to four adults and two children who want to slip into a more peaceful way of life on the Lizard Peninsula.

This 16th century waterside retreat is warm and cosy throughout with full central heating. It 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 and serve the garden room too. Up the wooden open tread staircase and...

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 wildlife is abundant, and a wide variety of birds were seen in the bird table...

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 rowing the little boat with Dad and playing in the garden while dinner was cooking....

We spent 5 nights at Rock Cottage over the New Year. Despite having pretty awful weather, we had great time! The cottage is extremely comfortable, warm, clean and well-equipped. And the views are tremendous down the ever-changing creek. The walk into Mawgan is 10 mins so getting to the excellent local shop and Ship Inn is easy and highly recommended....

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.
