This is a dream location for swimmers and walkers. The beach is absolutely breathtaking and the water wonderful to swim in at anytime of the day. The steep cliff access path ensures the beach doesn’t get overcrowded and on some days we almost had this beach to ourselves! There are a variety of walks to local villages for essential supplies, coffee, lunch/dinner. We loved the organic vegetarian cafe in Milbrook which also had fresh sourdough bread every day: a 5km round trip. Kingsand and Cawsand as well as Crafthole were also lovely walks with great options for food and drinks. There is a fabulous vegetarian takeaway in Downderry: Somethink Different, which did fantastic fresh juices and wraps, sandwiches etc. A brilliant pit-stop when out walking. The cabin is small but has everything you might need for simple living. The best of the space is outside on the large decking area. You can watch the sunrise and sunset. We were lucky to see the dolphins in the bay twice on our visit: absolutely wonderful! We stayed for three weeks and really loved Rockwater Cabin and hope to return.

We return here time & time again and it always makes us happy & relaxed. We just love Rockwater!
Mr Popovych April 2021
One of the best spots that I have seen so far
Mr Waddington September 2020
Brilliant location, relaxing getaway and hideaway - do NOT spread the word! But be warned it is even smaller than the pictures suggest and the path down from the road is not suitable for everyone.
Mr Torrens August 2020
Views to take your breath away every morning. Really well designed and decorated for such a small space.
Miss Kargayan August 2020
A great location and lovely little house, we had a very good time, there's everything needed in the cabin, plus it's well organized and pretty. And we could come with our little dogs!
Mrs Waite July 2020
Excellent location with amazing views. Cabin is in an ideal location with a short walk to the beach. Would highly recommend and definately book again.
Mrs Edwards July 2020
Fabulous terrace with spectacular views . Warm , quaint and cosy 1930ties cabin. Private and relaxing ( no WiFi and barely any signal) Don’t take to much clutter as there is a narrow steep access . We shall return.
Mr Shroeder December 2019
Thank you again lovely Rockwater, you always deliver on comfort & location. Thoroughly recharged our batteries before Christmas! See you next year.
Ms Hall July 2019

Ms Neufeld June 2019
Thank you very much for this amazing time in an absolute wonderful cottage... We didn´t want to leave at all! The view is the best we ever had and we felt very home from home in this cozy house. We definitley would like to come back!
Mr Fuller May 2019
A fabulous little cabin in a fantastic location. Can’t fault it
Miss Hunter May 2019
We just loved Rockwater Cabin. So much so I really didn't want to leave... It's tiny but so beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and extremely well equipped as well as spotlessly clean. The way the sun drenches every corner of every room and the glorious terrace overlooking that fabulous bay, it really is a very special place. We walked a great deal but always happily came home just to sit and stare at the sea, lulled into naps by the hypnotic sound of the waves below. We sincerely hope to return.
Mrs Shroeder January 2019
Running out of new things to say on our 5th visit! We were so lucky with the weather and managed to eat out on the deck in January! Our dog loved having the beach practically to himself. We didn't need to drive to anywhere else as Rockwater & it's surroundings had everything we needed to have the perfect weekend celebrating our daughter's birthday.Thank you again Rockwater, see you soon.

We stayed during storm Callum in October 2018. We didn't go out for two days due to the storm but once we had food there was no need to go out. Upon arrival the heater was left on, so the cabin was nice and toasty. The cabin has a calm vintage feel with all the utensils needed. It was like a home from home. The decking area, with the views of the sea and its surroundings are absolutely amazing! Although the wind from the storm was very strong, nothing from the decking area moved and the cabin felt very strong and sturdy!
We had a wonderful romantic and relaxing 3 nights and look forward to visiting again.
Mr Pusey May 2018
Excellent cabin in unrivalled location. Set in a lovely undiscovered area this cabin has everything you need for a chilled out coastal break.
Mr Daniel May 2018
Amazing amazing amazing!
Mrs Williams March 2018
The interior is just as beautiful as the exterior!
Mrs Brown February 2018
We arrived on a grey windy day and stepped into this haven of peace warmth and cosyness. From the clean painted floor boards to the snuggly blankets, the fire and the fairy lights. We needed a few days to catch up with each other and rock water cabin was the perfect remedy. Even if it was blowing a gale outside,it didn’t matter. Rock water was the perfect escape. Thank you.
Mr Shroeder December 2017
Our 4th visit to the gorgeous Rockwater Cabin.....that says it all really!
Mr Bursey October 2017

A little piece of heaven with spectacular, unspoilt views over the ocean
Mr Shroeder March 2017
Our third visit to this delightful cabin. This time our daughter came with us and she fell 'in love ' with it too. Lovely family time spent in a perfect location. Cosy, well equipped and immaculate as always Rockwater has everything you need with lots of extra touches too. We keep saying we'll be back....watch this space!!!
Mr Shroeder December 2016
A big thank you to the owners for listening to suggestions and changing things, e.g. heightening the kitchen bench to accommodate the vegetable rack underneath and providing table and chairs and sun loungers for the deck. We said we'd return, we did and we will again....stunning location
Mr Rowlandson September 2016
Path to the cottage can be a bit tricky at times especially when carrying luggage bags etc.

We hope you had a great stay at Rockwater Cabin - the clifftop location is unique, and in this instance that means the access is down an uneven track which we appreciate is more difficult when carrying bags, but we hope you agree the fabulous views are worth the effort. Tanya, Customer Support
Miss Miller September 2016
Idyllic place for peace and relaxation. Fabulous honeymoon destination. Our little pooch loved it also. Thankyou x

Rockwater cabin is amazing for a short break, with stunning sea views in a tranquil location. It's tiny, but the owners have provided everything you could possibly want for a wonderful stay.
Mrs Thompson June 2016
Rockwater Cabin is stylish in its own unique way. It offers tranquility and inspiration.
Mrs Rolfe June 2016
We had the most relaxing time at Rockwater Cabin and our holiday came to an end far to soon, would loved to have stayed longer! There was nothing they had not thought about for a comfortable stay and they had made sure you could make the most of the amazing views. Can't wait to return.
Miss Rowley April 2016
Wonderful, peaceful property with a stunning view. We can highly recommend!
Mr Shroeder April 2016
Don't want too many people to hear of this idyllic cosy cabin as we may not be able to get booked in future, but hope to return again and again please! Going to sleep and waking to the sound of the sea, the views, the warm welcoming feel are just perfect and relaxing, we could watch for the tide going out from the deck and then be down there in minutes, which suited our dog to a tee!! This place felt loved and we now love it too!! Thank you
