CORONAVIRUS: For all current bookings, we will either offer an alternative date or give a full refund of all monies paid if our guests are in a Tier 3 (or higher) area on the date of their travel to Rock Cottage. If we are in a Tier 3 (or higher) area at that time, then we would have to cancel your booking and return all your money, regardless of which tier your area in. If however you are in a Tier 2 area where restriction of travel away from home is advisory, not compulsory, then we would expect you to come. If you chose not to for whatever reason, then our normal cancellation policy, as laid out in our Terms & Conditions, would apply.
During these difficult times, it has become necessary to change and implement new ways in which we manage and operate at Rock Cottage. In line with recommended practices for rental homes, we have taken the necessary advice to safeguard you, ourselves and our future guests by introducing enhanced cleaning/sanitising, and all rooms will be sanitised by fogging.

Cornish Breakfast & Supper
Why not pre-order one of our food boxes and have it all waiting for you upon arrival at Rock Cottage. On line food deliveries may not always be possible and also shopping after a journey is not a lot of fun. The supermarkets are very busy at weekends. Four persons can enjoy a hearty breakfast or a delicious supper. These are very reasonably priced at £20 for a light breakfast (yoghurt, milk, homemade bread, butter, marmalade, variety pack of cereals, orange juice, filter coffee and melon) or £35 for a full Cornish breakfast (all the above, plus free range eggs, smoked back bacon, sausages/hogs pudding, mushrooms/tomatoes). Supper is £35 with homemade granary bread, Cornish sea salt oat biscuits, good selection of Cornish cheeses, bag of mixed olives, selection of salami, chicken liver pate, grapes and a bottle of red/white/rose wine. All produce is locally sourced and can be substituted if you prefer an alternative.
Many guests bring kayaks, paddle boards and wind surfing equipment to Rock Cottage. During your stay, you are welcome to store these on the wooden jetty. If you wish to bring a small boat, we may be able to provide a mud mooring in the channel but only if you tell us. A Tide Table is available in the property. Launching and retrieval is from the nearby Gweek Boatyard (they are pleased to welcome sailors and will look after your trailer too for a small charge).
