  • "With great thanks to the housekeeper Jane who went out of her way to make sure I had a hairdryer to use, providing her own for my use!"

    I am also very interested to know about the water heating system at the property, being electric and very efficient, I need to upgrade my own home system and this would seem to be perfect. If you can get in touch I would really appreciate it. This week in the Landewednack/Lizard was perfect, just as I had hoped it would be. Rocket Cart House really is a lovely bolt hole and we didn't want to leave the area, will certainly be back!

    Hi Melanie, We are so happy you had a lovely stay at The Rocket and enjoyed the Lizard.The water heating system we have is as follows: Hope this proves useful for you. Property Owner

  • "The house looks very similar to the photos, if not a little smaller."

    Space is utilised well throughout and the place was fully functional - hot showers and a very comfortable bed! The location is amazing, feels very remote but still within walking distance to restaurants etc. The only improvement was that although the kitchen/facilities and bed was clean, the sofa and floor felt very dusty/covered in bits which could have done with a Hoover. Perfect stay!

    Thank you for your feedback and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Rocket Cart House. In order to give guests a more luxurious touch the owners invested in a black velvet Chesterfield sofa and sometimes this can pick up lint which can be difficult to remove even though the sofa has been thoroughly cleaned. They have therefore taken your comment on board and will be using a different upholstery brush in future. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we hope you'll return to Rocket Cart House when you next holiday in Cornwall. Property Owner

  • "Outside area was disappointing and we had to clean on arrival to make it usable"

    Thank you for your review. The owners are in the first two months of letting out Rocket Cart House and are sorry the outside area was not to your liking. They have taken up your comment with their House keeping service and understand that when heavy Southwesterlies blow through the Lizard, the honeysuckle around the outside area can shed small leaves and twigs. They will ensure at every change over this area is thoroughly swept in future. Property Owner

  • "Everything was as promised - we knew it would be very small."

    However - the cutlery was slightly irritating - trying to manage with tiny teaspoons, then large soupspoons for eating was a problem. The pillows on the bed were very hard - easily remedied. Beautifully dressed and in a great location, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

About the location


Mullion 5 miles; Helston 11 miles.

The village of Lizard is situated on the Lizard Peninsula, the most southerly point in mainland England. Lizard offers a village green, small shops, a pub and cafes, with Lizard Lighthouse being the oldest mainland light in Cornwall. Lizard Peninsula is surrounded on three sides by the sea, with the fourth by the still waters of the Helford River, and boasts many golden beaches, cliff tops and coastal villages. Just five miles away is the large village of Mullion, which is home to a selection of popular restaurants, shops and pubs, along with Mullion Meadows Chocolate Factory and coffee shop and Mullion Cove, a pretty working harbour. Within driving distance is the busy market town of Helston, which is most famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west, and further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Lizard village is a convenient base for a visiting a variety of attractions.
