About the property

Cottage in Rock, Cornwall, England - Parking for 2 cars and enclosed sunny garden

Denis View is a traditional Cornish stone cottage in Rock offering small but well designed accommodation, ideal for couples or families with young children. It is around 190 years old so has flagstone floors, beamed ceilings and sash windows- all beautifully restored. The cottage is in a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk from the beach, pubs, restaurants and golf course in one direction and shops in the other. You can park your car when you arrive, with no need to use it again until you leave. Despite being small, it is well furnished and fully equipped with everything you need, including plenty of storage space and a separate second wet room toilet/ shower adjoining the garden. The outside space is fantastic with an enclosed, sunny garden and space to park 2 cars. A path runs from outside the front door to the closest beach at Porthilly. The cottage was redecorated and furnished in 2013.

About Olly and Judy Harris

Olly's family have been spending holidays in Rock for 40 years. We have 2 children who love the fun and freedom that this location provides.

Olly and Judy Harris purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Olly and Judy Harris chose Rock

We bought Denis View because we wanted a small holiday property with character. For us the main consideration was location- being close to the water and at the same time near the centre of the village, but in a very quiet spot.

Rock is really a fantastic place for family holidays- everything you need is nearby and we particularly like how little we use a car when we are there.

What makes this cottage unique

It is rare to find smaller holiday homes in Rock, especially so close to the beach.

The outside space is really great for a small cottage.

The front part of the linhay building (garage) is not accessible to guests. Please note that we don't accept pets or smokers.

There is a bench which is great for enjoying a coffee or glass of wine in the sun. The garden gate is immediately opposite the front door, up 2 steps. The garden is surrounded by traditional cornish hedges (slate walls with plants) and so is very private and fully enclosed, with many mature trees and shrubs. Part of the garden is in the sun all day, but also has some shady areas. There is a large picnic table with parasol and a barbecue. The parking area with space for 2 cars is between the garden and "linhay" building, to the rear of which the laundry area and wet room are located. There is a washing line and an outside tap. Utility Room: Small laundry area accessed from parking area with washing machine and tumble dryer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen not included- please bring your own. Duvets and pillows are provided. We expect you to clean the property on departure, it will have been cleaned prior to your arrival. Other: There is a porch for coats and boots with additional storage space. The laundry area/ wet room in the "linhay" building are ideal for coming in from the beach, sailing, surfing or muddy walks.
