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.

August 2020

Views to take your breath away every morning. Really well designed and decorated for such a small space.

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!

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.

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.

May 2019

A fabulous little cabin in a fantastic location. Can’t fault it

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.

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.

October 2018

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.

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.

The interior is just as beautiful as the exterior!

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.

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 this space!!!

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

September 2016

Path to the cottage can be a bit tricky at times especially when carrying luggage bags etc.

Reply from Classic Cottages

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

Rockwater Cabin is stylish in its own unique way. It offers tranquility and inspiration.

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.

April 2016

Wonderful, peaceful property with a stunning view. We can highly recommend!

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
