Cosy Cottage in Stunning Location
Pristine property in a hideaway location with extensive grounds including private waterfront and jetty. Rock Cottage surpassed all our expectations. The ever changing views from the kitchen and garden of the tidal river are mesmerising. If you can tear yourself away from the well equipped, cosy cottage, there is so much to do and see within easy reach. The nearby Ship Inn does excellent food in the evenings which is a 10-15 minute walk into the village. There is also a well equipped local shop here. 15 minutes in the other direction from the cottage is Gear Farm. Their award winning Cornish Pasties are not to be missed! Perfect to take on a hike as they stay warm for hours.
We enjoyed exploring and managed to see all the bits of Cornwall we came to see, and a lot more from this base. The hosts have thought of everything and the treats on arrival were very much appreciated!
We will return.
It was an absolute pleasure to welcome Marianne, Simon and Jonah to Rock Cottage and we are so pleased their holiday was a wonderful time. Marianne's great review, which we are very happy to receive, sums up the location and what there is to offer when you stay here. Thank you very much for this. You were excellent guests in every way, and it will be great to see you all again. xx
Overall really good experience but would have benefited from knowing how close it was to a road which is quite busy especially early in the morning.
The benefit of having Google maps on an advertisement is to provide the guest with the location and of course show them the exact position of the property. I can only assume this guest may not have seen this before making her booking. The 'road' in question is unclassified, narrow, follows the contour of the creek and used mainly by the locals. Unfortunately, building work taking place in the nearby village has, in the short term, increased the number of vehicles.
Rock Cottage is a wonderful hideaway with amazing views and everything within that you could need and more.
Linda and Robin are very welcoming and helpful. The basket of goodies was much appreciated and devoured especially the home made bread,
I couldn’t recommend staying there highly enough and we will certainly return. Thanks again both.
Thank you Ron. We are delighted to receive your review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we look forward to seeing you again.
Wonderful location. Great spot for a fisherman/bird spotter. The cottage itself has everthing you need to relax in the idyllic surroundings all functioning and spotless, from crisp fresh sheets, white goods to WiFi.
This lovely family had a great holiday and it will be good to see them again.
Really lovely spot, and lovely cottage. Direct access to Mawgan creek a real benefit for us to use our kayaks as well as the grandparents using Peggy.
A couple of BBQs throughout the stay, but every evening, bar the last, sat outside with a stunning backdrop.
Lots of wooded grounds to explore for children
The cottage and annex (Garden Cottage) were pristine.
Our stay will stay long in the memory.
We are delighted to receive your 5* review Neil and thank you for this. As you mention, having direct water access is a real bonus especially for those who love to be on the water. So pleased you and your family all had a great time. See you again.

A propos de Linda Dandy
Hello, my name is Linda Dandy and I am privileged to assist with the managing of Rock Cottage which has been in the Dandy Family for nearly 60 years. On a holiday to the area in 1954, Rock Cottage was ‘discovered’ by my husband’s parents, Eleanor (Peggy) and Leslie Dandy. They immediately recognised the special nature of this 16th century cottage and its unique location, which stands alone within an acre of land bordering the Helford River on two sides. Later that year the property was purchased at auction for their retirement.
Année d’acquisition : 1954
Pourquoi Linda Dandy a choisi Mawgan
At the time of purchase, the cottage was condemned as unfit for human habitation and was also Grade II listed because it was then the ‘only recorded example of a traditional Cornish cottage built on a projecting rock foundation’. There was no mains water or electricity, so rainwater was collected for washing and oil lamps and candles provided the only illumination. Drinking water was collected from a nearby spring. A comprehensive renovation programme took place and this was completed by January 1956. The main building was demolished to ground floor ceiling level except for the chimney end which was preserved. The traditional cob (mud, straw and stone) walls retained where it was possible. A Bathroom was created from the old Scullery, the Sitting Room extended and a new Kitchen constructed. The Garden Room was formerly a separate cottage and had been altered in the early 1900s to become a Meeting Room for game shooting for the Trelowarren Estate. Both families living in the cottages’ had shared the semi-detached privy with their own pathway to it. This building has been preserved and still exists at the bottom of the garden. It must have been quite tricky to keep a candle lit in order to see where you were going! An 1876 map also shows a boathouse and the original two stone walls of this still remain. The objective of the renovations was to modernise the cottage but still retain its character and originality as much as possible. We believe this has been achieved and many guests think so too. It is a superb waterside retreat and there is nowhere quite like it!
