From Rock Cottage you are only a drive away from King Arthur's seat at Tintagel, or Doc Martin's seat at Port Isaac, or an artist's seat at The Tate in St Ives. But, perhaps the nicest part of our location is that without moving you can just sit within touching distance of the sea, and enjoy the view!
