“Lovely location and fantastic accommodation - perfect for families”
Reviewed October 10, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely week at RockPools. Inside the villa is very well equipped, with everything you could possibly want during your stay. Everything was in pristine condition and felt like home from home. We had fantastic weather and made the most of the huge balcony and beautiful view in the warm summer evenings.

There's plenty to do in the local area. We visited several National Trust properties and the Eden Project. The beach at RockPools is perfect for younger children as there is plenty to explore, the sea is gently sloping and the water was calm during our stay.

Naturally, Black Rock attracts quite a few visitors at the weekends in peak season and a lot of debris was left behind on the beach and piled up by the bins at the end of the day, but the beach was cleaned and all rubbish removed by the following morning, so it's very well managed.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend RockPools as a great holiday destination. It's good value and a lovely location. We were sad to leave.

“Perfect location, lovely views.”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

An ideal location for exploring Cornwall but also great for a bit of beach time / lazing on the balcony and walking. There is an excellent restaurant on the beach where we had some very nice meals. We also walked into Looe several times - about half an hour along the coastal path. We cooked meals in the apartment which had all the required equipment. Dishwasher and washing machine a bonus. The guest book gives some tips for places to visit. The apartment is very peaceful and the views are amazing! Thank you!
