Rose Cottage Rocks

To the west of Rose Cottage Moorlands, this is a small collection of granite outcrops worth visiting.

It could be considered part of Pepperdon Rocks but would easily be missed if they weren't given separate status.

The highest rock sports a park bench from which to enjoy the vista, shown below.
