Cornish Granite Cottage, 5 minute walk to the Beach - Dogs welcome.

Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
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 the Owner

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.

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Nice little base

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this little cottage for 1 week (2 adults, 17yr old daughter and 2 cocker spaniels). The location is a great base for exploring Cornwall. It is really close to the beach (you really can hear the waves, although to get to the beach you do have to walk to a level crossing to get over the train track). The Mexican Inn at the end of the lane is fantastic and really welcoming, great food and lovely atmosphere (book early to get a table though).

The living area is very practicle and lovely, making really good use of the space of what is essentially a garage conversion.

The laundry facilities are handy, however we were only allowed use of them on a Tuesday & Thursday between 10am and 4pm.

The bathroom is accessed through the main bedroom so may cause problems for some.

There is a train track at the back of the cottage (between cottage and beach), however it did not bother us.

Constructive practical improvements are: bigger bathroom shelf, towel rail/hook near to sink, toilet roll holder. The washer is excellent but the dryer is very inefficient with it taking 4hrs to dry 1 towel. Clean in general but could do with a deep clean.

Overall we loved staying in Little Rock and would recommend it as very good value for money

Very Nice Granite Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jackie! We really enjoyed our time at the cottage! We loved how close to everything it is, the beach is a short walk away. St. Michael's Mount, St. Ives by train from Penzance, Mouse Hole, the Levant Mine, Penzance, Mariazon - we enjoyed it all. Thank you too to Pat, the housekeeper who was available to answer questions and always has a wonderful smile. Thank you to Penny, who answered our emails if we had a problem with the wi-fi or any other little thing.

The cottage is small but it was great for the three of us. The kitchen is fully equipped and we loved the dishwasher!

We would certainly recommend the cottage to anyone travelling to Long Rock!

Stayed at little rock for 4 days and explored Cornwall, location was great for west Cornwall, especially mousehole and marazion/st Michaels mount (5min drive). The cottage is well decorated and very comfortable, with Wifi! Jackie is an excellent owner and made sure everything was available and ready for our stay. Thoroughly recommend this cottage
