The Accommodation

Rock Cottage is beautifully appointed, with high quality furnishings throughout, equipped and maintained to our very high standards. With three bedrooms, which includes the separate Garden Room, the property sleeps a maximum of four adults with two children.

Whatever the season, the house is welcoming, warmed by an efficient oil fired boiler with radiators in each room and set up with all you need to have a comfortable and relaxing stay. You will find Rock Cottage appealing, with attention to detail in all rooms, your beds made, and personally prepared by Linda and Robin just for you.

The oak front door leads into the warm Hall which has washable quarry tiled flooring as does the bathroom and kitchen.  To the left is the newly fitted Kitchen/Diner which enjoys a fabulous view from a large picture window. This room has a small walk-in pantry and is fully equipped for the discerning cook. There is a double electric oven, ceramic halogen hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a washer/dryer. Sit and observe the bird life on the river and in the garden from the beech dining table.

Off the entrance hall is the Bathroom consisting of a white suite with deep bath, overhead electric shower, large wash hand basin, toilet, LED wall mirror, wall  heater, shaver point, as well as an extendable magnifying make-up mirror. A large radiator warms your towels. Bath sheets, hand towels, bathrobes and bath mats as well as luxury toiletries are supplied. This room also serves guests using the Garden Room.

On the right is the fully refurbished Sitting Room which retains lots of character. It has the original cob walls, cushioned window seats and a large stone inglenook with a lovely old copper canopy housing an electric wood burning effect stove. It's so easy to sit and relax in this warm and comfortable room with its luxurious sofa and matching armchairs as you watch a movie, listen to music on the ipod or perhaps play a game of scrabble.  There is also a dining table, chairs and an oak sideboard with lots of games, puzzles, jigsaws, pair of binoculars and tourist information. Oil paintings, pot lids and original quirky alcoves, decorate the walls. A 28" LED TV, dvd/vcr, music system with ipod dock, current magazines, local books, novels, maps, DVDs and CDs are there for your entertainment. Fast and reliable BT wireless broadband is included.

The far end of the sitting room leads to a lovely old open tread wooden staircase with wall mounted handrail. From the upstairs landing, you will find the Master and Children's bedrooms with polished wooden floors and rugs. Both of these bedrooms look out over the garden and the view is as far as the eye can see down the Mawgan Creek!

The triple aspect Master Bedroom has a very comfortable king size (5ft) bed, solid oak dressing table and chest of drawers as well as a built in wardrobe. There are bedside tables, pretty glass lamps with silk shades and like the adjacent Children’s Room, a spectacular view down the river. This is decorated in a vibrant seaside theme and has two standard length beds which are 2’6” wide, and is not suitable for adults. An airing cupboard with immersion heater is off this room.

If requested, we can provide free of charge, a sturdy plastic bath, travel cot, high chair and a changing mat. Please bring bedding and towels for the baby.

Please be aware that the cottage, its facilities and garden are not suitable for the infirm, disabled or unsupervised children.

GARDEN ROOM: Three metres from the oak front door and up two steps, is the third bedroom. This room offers privacy for a second couple, grand parents or over 18's and has been refitted for 2018 with a cream carpet. This spacious, popular room, with its wonderful view of the garden and river, has flexible sleeping arrangements and is set up with new 3ft zip and link beds which, when requested, can be arranged as a large bed. Bathroom facilities are in the main building. The bedroom is furnished with a white Shaker style combination wardrobe/drawers, dressing table, chair, large mirror and bedside cabinet complete with overhead reading lamps as well as a new 40" wall mounted  HD TV. When a family of six are staying, including a baby, the cot will be assembled in here.

BOAT: For many years we have provided a rowing dinghy for guests who wish to explore the Mawgan Creek.  'Peggy' is sturdy, 3.5M in length and suitable for up to four persons.  She is available, weather and tides permitting, from Easter until late October when she is taken out of the water, refitted and rested during the winter months. Stone steps lead to a large wooden staging where children can crab fish with line and bacon, kayaks can be stored or you may fish for Grey Mullet, Sea Bass and flat fish. Down on the rocky foreshore and fixed to a running line you will find the dinghy. Access to the river, which may be unsuitable for some, is by the garden or through our woodland. Use of these facilities and the boat is at Your Own Risk. A tide table is provided so you may plan your outing. The Creek has approximately 3+ hours of water either side of high tide, and except for a small channel, drains completely.  When this occurs, the myriad of water birds that live along the shoreline, will arrive to feed.

The sunny patio area, is perfect for relaxing in the recliners or enjoying a BBQ.
