About the Owner

I decided to buy this as a retreat to get away from it all. Not having to wait around at airports is an ideal holiday.

The Rocklands is stunning and this apartment was designed for Adults, be it couples, friends, siblings, mother and daughter, or just some quality 'me' time.

Each time i visit i am still taken aback at the beauty of the views of the Coastline from the Jucuzzi and Roof Terrace. The convenience of the walking to the beach below and watching the sunset from my balcony is something i can never wait to get back for.

I hope it brings you as many happy times and memories as i have when i am spend my time there.

Sheer pleasure in Newquay

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be spoiled in a rented flat, Rocklands is the right place. The owner, Elizabeth Morton, seems to be taking care of everything herself, and she has thought of just about everything.

When you go through the door, the first thing you see is the stunning view of the Atlantic! It’s like being on a cruise ship. Then, when you start to explore the flat, you can hardly believe the kind of welcome that Elizabeth has prepared for you with lots of small and big treats like candy, chocolate, fruit, biscuits - and wine; red on a tray with beautiful glasses, and white and bubbles in the fridge! As time goes by, you also find tea, coffee, sugar, salt and pepper, tablets for the dishwasher, washing powder etc. etc.

The flat is furnished with an extraordinary sense of high quality and functionality: Excellent bed (which is very important), Wi-Fi (Elizabeth has installed her own fast connection), bathroom/shower, lighting, heating, washing machine, dishwasher, oven, micro etc. Everything top class. We do think, though, that it is a pity to put Plexiglas on top of the beautiful kitchen stone worktop and on the small glass dining table to protect them; and we were also quite puzzled to find that the pillows were in plastic bags, and the huge and lovely duvet was in an equally huge plastic bag which made it impossible to sleep with. We put a blanket in the cover instead.

The whole flat is excellently equipped almost down to the smallest detail; for instance, you’ll find plastic glasses to use in the bubble bath and on the roof terrace, where you are not allowed to bring anything made of glass; and straw blankets for the beach. However, we did not manage to find any means of making coffee.

The view from the balcony is a story in itself. You’ll never get tired of watching the tide, the changing surf and the surfers; and sometimes a most spectacular sunset. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Elizabeth!

We spent a wonderful week at the Rocklands and Elizabeth was great to work with. The views are spectacular and it's also just a short walk into town and drive to other little harbor towns. We would highly recommend this property and can't wait to go back!

Beautiful flat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 week in Elizabeth´s flat. Everything was perfect. The flat is very well equipped, very clean and cosy.

It got everything you could possibly need. The view from the balcony is amazing. We spent many mornings having breakfast and looking at the ocean. You can also listen to the ocean while falling asleep. The beach is great, with surfing school and some nice restaurants.

The location is great as well. No need to have a car.

Elizabeth is a very nice person to deal with.

We had a great stay and we would certainly recommend Rocklands to anyone.

From the Owner

The Rocklands is a unique 5 star rated complex block that beholds luxurious interiors and spectacular views over Tolcarne Beach in Newquay. This contemporary luxury well designed studio aparment for couples only is fully equiped with plenty of storage space and home comforts to ensure your stay is both enjoyable and relaxing. A well stocked kitchen and supplies provides all that is required to ensure that your holiday is home from home. All residents have access to the roof sun terrace and seating area with its amazing views of the coastline. I purchased this property as it is the perfect retreat, a place to get away from it all, to spend time together, to rest, to be creative, to cook, to surf or just to have some valued 'me' time. My view makes it very hard to leave the apartment as the balcony is sea facing and perfectly positioned to watch the beach all day and sunsets each evening. The Rocklands is just a few minutes walk from Tolcarne Beach and all the local restaurants in Newquay centre.
