About this Property

A charming mid-terrace cottage that is nestled to the seaward side of Long Rock. This character home has three bedrooms of which one has a lovely uninterrupted view over Mounts Bay to St Michaels Mount.  An early inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate.


The property is nestled to the seaward side of Long Rock village and is within walking distance of the local beaches, shop, children’s play park, public house and bus stops. The bustling market town of Penzance, approximately two miles distant offers a wider range of amenities together with primary and secondary schooling. Good commuter links are provided by the bus and main line railway station.
