“Breathtaking views”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We only stayed four nights, but definitely fell in love with the house. The views form the sitting room, kitchen and our bedroom were breathtaking. The house had everything we needed, was comfortable, pleasant and roomy. We liked it so much we have rebooked for a week in May. We live in Colorado and visit the Southwest to walk the coast paths in Cornwall and Devon once or twice a year. We have been renting self-catering since 1991 and this is one of best places we have stayed. Working arrangements with the owner has been a delight. The village is quaint, but has several shops and good pubs. All within walking distance and the coast path is a few feet away. Be prepared though to park your car in the car park and climb the hill to the house. There is room to drop things off but the streets are narrow. It is well worth the extra exercise. And if one is there for walks on the coast path, well this is nothing.

“A fabulous find in beautiful Kingsand”

We stayed here as we were attending a wedding in nearby Polhawn Fort. The apartment is really a home from home with spectacular views from the kitchen, living room and double bedroom. Everything you need is here and the accommodation is very comfortable. It was lovely to sleep at night listening to the waves breaking on the shore.
Kingsand itself is small and quaint and has some excellent pubs serving good food. The halfway House was a particular favourite. The only slight downside is parking which as with all Cornish seaside villages can be a bit of a pain.
I would recommend Rock House without hesitation.

“DON'T LOSE OUT ON A LITTLE GEM JUST BOOK IT”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

rock house is impressive accomodation,spacious and very well appointed it lacks nothing.fantastiic views with secret door to beach having great appeal to children and (big children).a small negative is the parking issue but soon overlooked and small price to pay for such a fabulous stay. only wish we had had the opportunity to have stayed longer,have no hesitation in recommending.

Large, but cosy house with magnificent views. Kingsand is very well served with pubs/restaurants. Great place to stay. Happy to recommend to others.

“Perfect location for an active family holiday”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in June 2014

We had been invited to a wedding at Polhawn Fort and required accommodation for our young family (children aged 5 and 9) and my elderly (but reasonably active) 83 year old mum. I found this house on Tripadvisor and thought it looked perfect. We were not disappointed.

The wedding was in the middle of the week so we decided to make a holiday of it and booked for a full week. We spent most days walking the dogs, swimming in the sea, kayaking, running, going on long walks and generally enjoying the surrounding area. We parked the car in the village car park and left it there for the week. The only time it moved was to take my mum to the wedding venue (which was only 2 miles away) and back, other than that everything we wanted to do was in walking distance.

My mum had no trouble with the stairs up to the property as they were quite shallow and had a hand rail to help her. She also had no problems with the ups and downs of Kingsand and Cawsand and I think she came home fitter than when we first arrived. On the times she did not want to come out with us, she spent either down by the sea or sat in the living room watching the ever changing scenery of the estuary. The MOD were on manoeuvres so we were treated to all sorts of ships and submarines. She also took my daughter over on the foot ferry to Plymouth for a day out.

We had our main food shop delivered by an online grocery supermarket but kept stocked up on essentials from the local shop that was within very easy walking distance.

Under the stairs up to the property provided us with somewhere to store our kayak, oars, wetsuits etc so we did not need to bring wet things into the house or back to the car, and the gated passage down to the sea allowed for easy access to the bay from the property rather than having to carry our stuff through the village houses.

This property was also perfect for our dogs. The beach was dog friendly and the fields with coastal path was just above the house. Our dogs slept in a crate, which helped to keep the house clean, and there was plenty of room for this.

The setting is as idyllic as the pictures suggest. We had the most fantastic holiday and look forward to returning one day.
