  • "A lovely, light, spacious and well located property."

    The exclusive use of the wood fired hot tub is a wonderful bit of luxury at the end of a day of sightseeing. The views over the coast and sea are beautiful and you can either walk or drive to the Eden project, which is only three minutes away by car. The owners are very helpful if you ever need anything and arriving to find milk, tea and cream scones with jam for you was a really nice touch.

  • "Thankyou for a lovely stay."

    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, we had a lovely warm welcome and the cream tea is a lovely touch on arrival. The cottage was perfect for the dogs as the garden was enclosed and the flooring in cottage was easy to clean. Jane was lovely, very approachable and friendly. Will definitely recommend and hopefully be back sometime. Thank you

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay here!"

    With fabulous views overlooking the countryside and sea from our bedroom window, to the enclosed garden at the back making it very safe for our dogs, Black Rock was everything we needed. It was nice having our own bathrooms, the kitchen was well stocked and functional, the beds were comfortable, and for us, the cherry on the cake after a 7 hour drive was that the owners had pre-heated the hot tub for us so all we had to do was stoke the fire up a little more, and soak! The addition of milk, teabags and all the ingredients for a Cornish cream tea was a lovely touch, and we also bought a box of delicious fresh eggs. All in all, a lovely stay and would definitely recommend! :)

  • "The property is located in a great central location to access the local tourist attractions such as the Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project."

    The hosts were lovely and informative and on hand to provide extra logs for the fire and eggs when needed. The property itself was fantastic, it has a great living space and two good sized bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms. The kitchen had all the utensils required for a weeks stay and we enjoyed eating in as much as out. The only negative was the property needed a more thorough clean before arrival (oven and floors predominately). A hoover would have been helpful to have on hand thoroughout the stay to help with picking up sand etc when going to the beach.

  • "Black rock was a lovely cottage!"

    The hosts were very accommodating. Beautiful location. It was exactly what we needed with a toddler and a young dog.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Black Rock, the accommodation was extremely comfortable."

    The location perfect for strolling down to the Eden Project. It's handy for the Lost Gardens of Heligan and south west path walks. We recommend the walks from Fowey to Polkerris and from Carlyon Bay to Charlestown. Our only disappointed was no logs were provided for the log burner but Tesco is just a few minutes away by car so we were able to buy logs and kindling there. The central heating was perfectly adequate, but we love a log fire. We hope to return to Black Rock next year.

  • "Greeted by Paul on arrival we entered the cottage and were delighted at the attention to detail."

    Everything was immaculate and we settled in and lite the log burner, poured a glass of red and felt at home immediately. The cottage was spotlessly clean. The weather was a little wet so say the least but even when we weren’t out exploring the wonderful sights of the Cornish coast we quite happily settled down and stayed in. There was everything that was needed for a comfortable stay. Sadly due to Covid we were unable to access the hot tub but this is quite understandable. Thank you from Anne and Simon

  • "Black Rock cottage is in a fabulous location with a lovely view of St Austell bay."

    The cottage was comfortable with modern amenities. We were however, disappointed that the advertised hot tub was not available, there was no washing machine in the cottage and the laundry facility was also not available. It might be a good idea to replace the dish washer with a washing machine. Much more useful. One more thing, we were there for two weeks and the bedding was not changed. Having mentioned these things I must say that we had a fabulous holiday and would definitely come again.

  • "We loved the cottage and its location."

    However, the kitchen had a complicated microwave without an instruction manual. A manual for the electric oven would also have been appreciated. We had an amusing conversation with the owners when the two elderly sofas were replaced by brand new ones just as we were leaving!

    Jane me Paul we’re very warm and welcoming but also not in the least bit intrusive. There was a cream tea laid out for our arrival and we felt at home right away! Bedding and towels were top quality and the beds were super comfy. We will be going back for sure

  • "We thought it was great but as a person of 5 feet black rock had very high hooks and hanging I simply could not reach."

    Also the sofas were very low and wide which I found difficult to use. Very comfy when on them but not good to get out of or move on. I felt like I was visiting the land of the giants .

  • "We had very little communication from owners of property which seemed to be only next door which adjoined the property, the small print stated there was a washing machine that we could use but nobody came to show us where this was placed , so we found a utility room in a separate outhouse with a washer in it on site so we did use it."

    We asked the daughter of the owners, I think , about using hot tub to which she rang her parents for instructions how to use it , again I thought at some point in the week they would have come to introduce themselves and answer any queries we had but saw no one. On the departure morning we left the key inside the property as we had found it on arrival , again nobody told us what to do with the keys.

About the location


Charlestown 2 miles; Carlyon Bay 3 miles; Mevagissey 6 miles; Fowey 8 miles.

The old market town of St Austell, just a mile or two from the south coast, is famous as the historic centre of the china clay mining industry. Today, its many beaches and its sub-tropical gardens provide plenty to see and do. The wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are perfect for a family day out, and a little further afield Caerhays Castle provides a stunning backdrop to Porthluny Cove. On the edge of town, St Austell Brewery offers tours of the Victorian brewing equipment and a chance to sample the local beer, and for those looking for surf and sand, St Austell Bay has several beaches to choose from - Porthpean, Carlyon Bay, Pentewan, Polkerris - the last offering a variety of water-sports. As well as a small shingle beach, Charlestown, a pretty, historic port, often has wooden sailing ships in the harbour, and is popular as a film location. A little further afield are Fowey and its beautiful estuary to the east and the fishing port of Mevagissey to the west. With lots to do and something to keep the whole family entertained, St Austell is a great year-round destination.
