About this property

Set midway between Marazion and Penzance, Long Rock is a small coastal village in Mounts Bay with a long, sandy, beach and wonderful views over St Michael’s Mount. Nestled in the heart of the village, Rock On The Bay is a small, beautifully proportioned traditional stone cottage with three bedrooms and an inviting living room that bursts with character and a welcoming atmosphere; perfect for family holidays on Cornwall’s magnificent west coast.

Arranged over two floors the cottage features a large open plan lounge on the ground floor, with an ornamental cast iron fireplace and two sublimely comfortable sofas. The dining room which is incorporated into the space, has a chunky oak dining table and seating for six so is the ideal spot for sharing breakfasts and dinners or for discussing the day’s plans before heading out to explore. Well-equipped to handle anything from batches of freshly baked biscuits to a full English, the cottage’s farmhouse kitchen is fully kitted out with a range of appliances and cookware so cooking up family meals is a pleasure, and a small rear courtyard makes a great place to enjoy a morning coffee while soaking up the sunshine.

Upstairs, cosy bedrooms and a large family bathroom mean plenty of space for up to 6 guests, with two double bedrooms and a children’s room with bunk beds making the perfect set up for families with children in tow. Superior mattresses, lovely soft furnishings and a TV in the master bedroom create sublimely comfortable places to retire to after days spent down at the beach, and large windows invite the morning light in after a restful night’s sleep.

Situated within just a mile and a half of both Marazion and Penzance, Rock On The Bay makes a fantastic base for discovering all that this stunning slice of coastline has to offer. Walk the exposed path at low tide to the iconic St Michael’s Mount and discover extraordinary gardens and an historic castle, or visit the ancient ruins of the Minnack Theatre in Lands End, or Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens in Penzance. The South West Coast Path runs right along the beach and is a great way to take in the coastal views and landscape, while Long Rock Beach with it’s long sandy stretch is perfect for family days out or for exercising four-legged friends.
