About the home
Sit for hours with a coffee in the kitchen or with a glass of wine in the sitting room overlooking the 270 degree views of Mount Edgcumbe country park with Dartmoor in the distance, the South Hams and the Mew Stone, out to sea and round to Penlee Point. Watch the continuous marine activity from local gig racing, to beautiful yachts to the Royal Navy practising high speed manoeuvres (as well as the occasional dolphin on quieter days!) ....

The West Country / Cornwall region
The village of Kingsand is located on the Rame peninsula, known as Cornwall's Forgotten Corner. There is a small beach right outside the house and fabulous rock pools for children to explore. The stunning beaches of Whitsand Bay are a short drive (and easy park) away.

The Cawsand / Kingsand area
Kingsand Cawsand has four great pubs and a hotel within easy walk serving good food (booking recommended.) The well stocked village shop is within a few minutes' walk of the property serving hot pasties - perfect for that picnic. There is a friendly cafe/ ice cream parlour on the beach as well as a deli/ cafe/ bakery (in season.)
Parking is in the central car park which is five minutes' walk and weekly swipe cards can be purchased. (Unloading 70 yards from the property. )
There is a foot ferry from Cawsand Beach at regular intervals during the spring/ summer months going right to the heart of Plymouth's Barbican with easy access for the aquarium.
Mount Edgcumbe country park borders the village with good walks there & on the other side up to Penlee coastguard station and over to the ancient church of Rame overlooking Whitsand Bay.
Looe and Polperro, with their great fishmarket, are a half hour's drive as is the Monkey Sanctuary.
Indoor heated swimming pool, 2.5 miles.
Very convenient for Polhawn Fort.

My wife and I and my sister-in-law had a wonderful few days at Rock House. The accomodation was perfect - very comfortable - all mod cons - and beautifully clean !
To wake up and have breakfast with that stunning view was amazing. Even the weather was perfect, so having the quiet beach only a few strides away put "the icing on the cake" !
When not sitting on the beach, we managed some picturesque walks nearby and in the evening we ate at a couple of local, very welcoming, pub/restaurants - and the food was good too ! Final comment - "worth every penny - we will return !! "

I cannot rate this property highly enough, from the perfect location to the apartment itself. The sea views are incredible, the apartment has everything you need for the perfect holiday. The manager is extremely friendly and helpful and is on hand to resolve any problems. Kingsand is an unspoilt fishing village with very welcoming locals. There are plenty of places to eat, all within easy walking distance. There is no parking at the property, but don't let that put you off. The nearby car park is very near by, it is secure with the owner living onsite. If you are looking for the perfect costal holiday look no further, my husband and I look forward to returning next year.

The first thing to say about Rock House is do not attempt to take your car all the way down the extremely narrow lane. Enter the lane with your car by all means but stop before the small bridge to... more
