“We had the most wonderful week in Rockpool Cottage. The cottage itself has everything you’ll need. Lovely decor and nice finishes throughout and we were made to feel very welcome by Ken & Gail. The enclosed garden is a sheltered gem and has a great sunny patio area. The front is even better! The view of the sea is amazing and so handy for a daily swim from the Second Sands beach just across the road. Special house in an amazing area. Would definitely book again.” Helen, Alex, Harry & Shug the dog, August 2023

Rockpool cottage had everything available for a week away, the property is beautifully decorated, very clean and makes for a very comfortable and cosy stay.

The Spar is just up the road and The View does a very good breakfast at a reasonable price.” Rachel, September 2023 (

The carpets were also deep and plush and overall, the cottage offered a very comfy bed, a new kitchen, powerful shower, loads of space & tasteful decor. Altogether Rockpool cottage is a safe place for solo travellers to explore the surrounding area & get back to feeling yourself.” Lindsay, October 2023 (
