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.
