About Us


At Rockpool design comes first. We are a design led company. We believe that the marriage between thoughtful and sometimes quirky design with sensitive materials can create wonderful buildings to live in. We don’t believe in a formulaic one-size-fits-all approach and we pride ourselves on offering unique properties that offer something a bit different to the norm.

Our goal is that every completed project should build on our reputation in the long term and this ethos drives the attention to detail and quality of finish in the homes we create. In the course of our work, we also aim to celebrate our local area both economically, by using local suppliers and businesses, and socially, by providing homes that we are proud of and by contributing to local charities. After all we don’t just invest and work in this area, we live here too.

Working with our sister companies we are able to offer a wide range of property managment, development and investment opportunities. Helping to provide long term and sustainable property solutions in North Cornwall and Devon.

Work with us

Many Rockpool projects are conceived when we are approached by an agent, solicitor, surveyor or architect who knows of a property that might be of interest to us. Rockpool's strength is unlocking the value of a property through our understanding of planning, design and construction. Whether it’s a single small flat, a large building or piece of land with or without planning permission, we are interested in hearing about it. We can assess properties quickly and provide a definitive response as to whether it would make a potential Rockpool project. We are flexible in our approach, and can adapt an offer to suit the requirements of different land owners. Whether that means an outright unconditional cash purchase, an offer conditional upon planning permission being granted, or even entering into a joint venture agreement as a development partner.

Work With Rockpool

Rockpool is an innovative company growing quickly. We are not currently advertising for any vacancies, but if you think you have something to offer us, and would fit in with the Rockpool ethos, please contact us with your CV.
