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...

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).

Chris was very accommodating and the room was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was very generous and it was great to hear some of the history of the area with Chris over a cup of tea. Wifi was fast and the rooms were clean. Would recommend.

We stopped here as part of a 47-mile walk from St. Ives to Penzance and back again. Our host, Chris, was friendly and readily available. He not only cooked us an amazing breakfast, but had great stories to tell about the local area. I highly recommend staying here.

It is very rare that Rockridge get guests that don't appreciate the fact that check-in is 4 o'clock and not before as all walking groups are told this by their tour organiser beforehand. Rockridge House is a bed & breakfast establishment. There are a lot of guests who are walking the coast path and are staying for one night only....this...

Good location, 10 mins walk from Minack theatre and Porthcurno beach. Clean house and friendly host, generous breakfast. Great value for money. We'll definitely be back. Chris was helpful, informative and accommodating.

Rock ridge house is probably the nicest B&B in Porthcurno. Chris is a most welcoming host and the rooms are clean and well equipped. He also cooks a mean breakfast. You cannot gain entry until 16.00 but spend this time on beach or in the pub
