Sitting peacefully within its own private garden beside the National Trust coastal path this stunning property dating from the 1890’s was originally the building storing the apparatus used by rescue services which included a breeches buoy system giving it the name Rocket.

    A lovely, well equipped home in a breathtaking location with panoramic view of the sun setting over the ocean from the living room. Good walking from your doorstep. Nice local pub within easy walking distance (provided you are ok with hills!). Would recommend to a friend

    Its in a spectacular position but when it’s raining or very windy( half our time there ) it’s a bit desolate! A long way on foot to get anywhere. But if you love sea views it’s an ever changing scene in front of you. If you like walking and don’t care about the weather then this would be perfect.

    Our second visit to Rocket House and hopefully not our last. It’s location for us is perfect - semi-isolated and a good walk away from the nearest pub. The house is very comfortable, with everything you need for a great, relaxing holiday. The views from the house are breathtaking. Perfect in every way.

    Highly recommended outstanding quality one off holiday house in a stunning location! The Rocket House is beautiful, the layout & comfort & decor, attention to detail, cleanliness and thoughtful personal care of the owner is first rate. If you love Panasonic views, amazing sunsets, peace and quiet, being on a cliff top setting, with SW coastal path, coastal scenery and walks, this is the place for you! Very steep walk to rocky Hartland Quay below, which is spectacular, but not really accessible for young ones - instead trip in car to nearby NT Sandymouth Bay was top favourite family beach setting.

    This is a wonderful holiday house-home from home. Designed, furnished and decorated to an extremely high standard with the windows positioned to maximise the views. We appreciated meeting the owner on arrival (and her lemon cake) and departure. The unusually wet June allowed us to enjoy the house even more, especially the log fire. For a holiday away from the crowds this is the place to be.

    Fantastic holiday home, everything you would need at home has been thought about and supplied. Views from the Cottage are stunning and there are walks straight from the front door. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable well catered holiday home with stunning views and lots to see and do right from the front door or venture slightly further and many interesting places to visit.

    Best cottage we have ever stayed in. The view is amazing, very peaceful and a great place to recharge. The walks from the front door are well worth doing but you can also just spend hours watching the sea and sky from the house. We will definitely be returning soon.

    Fantastic Location, the House is done to an excellent standard, little touches like Chocolate Brownies and soaps from local shops is a nice touch. View is to die for and at different times of the year it will change with dramatic effect.. Loved this place, great place to come back to every day and if you couldn't get out it would be a lovely place to have to stay in all day too. I am going back next year and I have also interested a work colleague so much she has booked to go in mid September and I have never felt confident enough to recommend another person to stay somewhere I have stayed before.. Overall great experience and if you are looking for a bit of drama i.e coastlines in "Outlander" and strenuous but enjoyable walks I would say this is definitely the place to stay... Well done to Lynda the owner who has put herself in the customers place and thought of everything a customer might like and appreciate. Kind Regards Lin
