Excellent location on the down side sometimes struggled to park,but property made up for that.

We had a lovely week at Rock Samphire despite a week of rain in August. The cottage had everything we needed. Touches are personal and thoughtful re comfort and settling in. We appreciated the coffee and cream tea on arrival!

Gorgeous place. Beautiful, comfortable and well equipped. Great location.

We are delighted you have visited Rock Samphire twice; it really is your perfect holiday destination! We would love to welcome you back for a third visit. Sarah R, Customer Support

We loved our stay here. The location is perfect for exploring and very handy for the village.

Rock Samphire cottage provides excellent holiday accommodation for couples or small families who want a out of the way location to explore Cornwall. Situated in the small village of St Agnes, you are literally located to get anywhere in Cornwall within 2 hours. The cottage is incredibly well maintained, has all conveniences that anybody would need (dishwasher, washing machine, Wi-Fi etc) and is simply one of the best that we've ever used in the County.

Would highly recommend to all

Lovely home from home, great location. Beautiful village.

Perfect cottage , clean and comfy , felt instantly at home . Comfy beds and well equipped . Good Tv with Netflix. Near to great places to eat and beaches . I’d happily live here !!

This cottage is very well situated with easy walking access to the vibrant and friendly village, the local shop, the pub, the beach and a small garden where you can walk your dog. Albeit those with walking difficulties may struggle with the hills. The cottage is well maintained, well furnished and very well stocked taking into account the unique needs of a young family and those with pooches!

Lovely clean, cosy cottage with very comfy beds! Very well equipped kitchen but close enough to takeaways (Cornish Pizza is delicious- just order well in advance!) and pubs/restaurants if you’re not up for cooking! Would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

As regulars with classic cottage and regulars to st agnes ,we’ve tried a few around the area , classic cottage are one of the best company’s to stay with as all the property have the same high standards, and rock samphire didn’t let the side down, it was fantastic there . The kitchen and was well equipped, as well as bathroom with plenty of towels and bedrooms with plenty of hanging /folding space..

Rock Samphire is the perfect cottage for a stay in the wonderful St Agnes. It is literally a couple of minutes stroll to all of the amenities available in the village. These include great pubs, restaurants, take-aways, supermarkets and a wonderful bakery serving the best Cornish pasties!

The beach is a 10 minute walk and is beautiful! The coastal walks in either direction are stunning and there are a number of fantastic beaches nearby; Porthtowen and Chapel Porth to name but two.

We will certainly be booking Rock Samphire again!

Lovely cottage with everything we needed excellent village location.

Lovely stay with easy access to everything

Excellent stay, great cottage for its comfort and location. We also appreciated the owner’s attentions. Highly recommend.

Lovely cottage in the heart of St Agnes- everthing you need for a very comfortable stay

I am the pickiest of people but this was a fabulous cottage with lovely comfy beds and big bedrooms. Extremely well equipped in the kitchen with everything you need, and the other half loved the big TV and the huge settee. Only downside is limited parking and the house is on a very steep hill.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
