About the property

Bungalow in Longrock, near Penzance, Cornwall

Little Rock is located in the village of Long Rock which is set between Penzance and Marazion. A quiet village which belies the fact that is nestles right on Mounts Bay and has all the joys of the beach without the hustle and bustle (and parking problems) of Marazion. Little Rock is the little sister of 3 Seaview (8034431) and has been renovated to the same high standard - with quality and comfort being our aim. Sat in the garden you can hear the waves lapping when the tide is in - that is how close you are to the beach! Please note there is a single line train track next to the beach. Small (totally enclosed) courtyard with quality table & chairs.

About Jackie Budd

Nick and I purchased 3 Seaview as our family home on the sea in 2004. We loved standing on the balcony overlooking Mounts Bay and watching the world go by. Unfortunately due to work commitments we had to move to Bristol but couldn't part with Number 3. Since 2009 Number 3 and its little sister Little Rock (E2235) has enjoyed welcoming guests from all over the world! We are particularily proud of the amount of return guests we receive each year which I hope shows our passion for providing a beautiful, comfortable holiday cottage in a stunning location.

Jackie Budd purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Jackie Budd chose Ludgvan

Originally our annexe for Granny Peggy - since moving we have renovated and created a beautiful cottage for exploring the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to thank the owners for our wonderful stay at Little Rock. The beautifully finished cottage was surprisingly spacious with ample room for our children to play in. The attention to detail looked after our every need. The courtyard and BBQ was an added bonus and lengthened our holiday days into the evenings until night fell. Sky TV made sure Dad was happy whilst the amazing fitted kitchen and facilities gave the house a real home from home feel. Having a family run shop 10 yards from the front door was perfect in addition to two supermarkets within one mile. Ideally placed with short walks to Penzance and Marizion along the beach/path with one of the best views in the country and short drives to the amazing beaches in Hayle, St. Ives and Porthcurno, Littlerock was a perfect base for our family to explore Cornwall returning to unparalleled home comforts. Many thanks. What a great holiday. W, D, A and E 31/7/10.

lovely well equipped comfortable cottage,location is convenient for visiting all around Cornwall.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely comfortable well equipped cottage. Great location for visiting all the attractions around Cornwall. There are a couple of shops,a restaurant & a hotel practically next door as well as a bus stop with a very good service, the beach is only a few minutes walk and has a lovely coastal path where you can walk a couple of miles in either direction, we were delighted to discover that the Longrock beach was completely dog friendly as well. I would definitely book this cottage again as there's still an awful lot of the area to discover and we felt right at home in Littlerock .

Perfect as a base to explore

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location, Mexico Inn only a few yards away serving a good selection of ales and good food. It's only a 30-40 walk to either Penzance or St Michaels Mount. Ideally situated for buses with stops in either direction practically on the doorstep.

Lovely cottage. Has everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

Only 5 minutes walk to the beach. Fantastic views to St Michael's Mount and lovely gentle walk to Marazion. Got used to trains very quickly so don't let that put you off. Easy access to other parts of Cornwall. Walking distance to large supermarket and pub 2 mins away.

Great location, get up in the morning for a walk along the beach to Marazion for your coffee and to sit and watch the world go by...or go in the opposite direction and walk into Penzance....brilliant! Little Rock felt like home, safe enclosed courtyard for the dogs and everything on the one level inside,will definitely be coming back.

Cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is small but very cosy and almost everything has been thought of. We (myself, husband and miniature Schnauzer Finlay) soon settled in. Lovely little garden area really nice for sitting out on an early evening with a glass of wine. Sky TV with Sky films too. Compact lounge/kitchen area but very comfortable. Really could do with supplying a hairdryer although that is only a small thing really. The village itself is not really a family resort but we soon got to like it as it is central for so many places to visit and has the most fantastic pub, Mexico Inn, next door. The pub is dog friendly, very dog friendly, and all the locals made us feel so welcome - please try it - food brilliant too. Very good local shop too seems to sell everything. The coast road is great especially for walking your dog about 1 1/2 miles to Penzance and 1 mile to Marazion and St Michaels Mount. There is a train shunting area which my husband thought was fantastic and we loved hearing the trains going past on an evening. Catch the train to St Ives from Penzance rather than trying to drive and park. Lizard point has stunning views and so does Kynance cove. There are so many places to visit and the cottage is a great central spot to stay.
