Rockridge can accommodate around 20 people and seemed to be run almost single-handedly by Chris - and run very well. We were walking the coast path and did get very wet but Chris arranged for everything to be dried off. He gave us good advice on eating out (The Logan Rock Inn - around a mile away over the fields...

We stayed in the Rockridge house for 2 nights with our 1 year and 3 month old son. We were offered the ground floor apartment with a double bedroom, a single Room, microwave, fridge and kitchen worktop and it was just great. The amazing Porthcurno beach (photo attached) is 5-7 minutes walk away. Minack theatre is nearby as well. Last...

We stayed in the apartment, which has a good sized kitchen diner (futon??), double bedroom, single room with bunk beds (no window, but that could also be seen as a security feature for smaller children), shower room and a hallway with own entrance. Lovely breakfast thanks to Chris and the views from the breakfast table were gorgeous. A skip and...

Super B&B, received a friendly welcome from Chris. The room was immaculate with everything we needed and the view of Porthcurno Beach was a bonus. Rockridge House is only a 10 minute walk to The Minack Theatre and we will definitely stay here again!

Close to the beautiful Portocurno beach, well worth a stay. Nice area, and nice house. Friendly host, and a nice room. Very good breakfast and well functioning wifi. All in all very good value for the money.

Friendly welcome, with comfortable rooms on offer. The accommodation is in a great location for walkers as a stop on the South West Coast Path. However, it has more to offer, so worth a two-night stay at least. Not only is Porthcurno the location for the Minack Theatre, but the Telegraph Museum two minutes walk away from the B&B is...

Gorgeous B and B. The furnishings are in the best taste and of the finest quality. The linens on the bed are magnificent and so gorgeous to sleep in. There was no appointment that was not perfect. Chris let me have some breakfast since i was leaving before serving time. A kind gesture. Do know, though, that check-in is not...

We had a lovely stay at Rockridge House. Chris Thornton is a great host who welcomed us warmly. The room we had was very spacious, and although the bathroom is not en-suite, it was our own so we weren't sharing with any other guests. Breakfast is served at the long kitchen table shown in the picture; it is a nice...

The house is decorated to a very high standard, beds are very comfortable and the rooms tastefully decorated. Chris has done a great job. The breakfast was delicious and lots to eat and the full English was,...

Stayed here whilst walking SW coast path. Lovely big room with sea view. Plentiful breakfast and a very friendly, helpfuk host. Great location and wonderfully peaceful. Big house which can cater for many guests courtesy of the very efficient host (Chris).
