Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Well appointed cottage, in a quiet village, 50 yards from a lovely safe sandy beach. Ideal location for a family holiday. June 2012.
  2. Excellent property in a fantastic and quiet location. Close to plenty of attractions, we visited Vault Beach (excellent walk along the coast), the National Maritime museum in Falmouth, via the ferry from St. Mawes, Fowey, Pentewan Valley cycle path, Eden Project, Charlestown and Mevagissey and feel that there are easily enough activities in the area to warrant a return trip. After a day out the kids loved being able to quickly walk down to the beach for a relaxing swim. We considered leaving the car beside the property but quickly opted to leave it in the town car park, which was only a short walk away and actually worked well, allowing our toddler to have a run around before we put him in the car. June 2012.
  3. A stunning property, really well appointed and a real pleasure to stay he. We are already planning next year at the same location. April 2012.
  4. Gorran Haven is a very quiet Cornish village, with steep, winding streets and pretty cottages. There are two beautiful sandy bays, backed by rocky cliffs. The cottage I stayed in was very comfortable; although the number of beds made it better suited to a family. There is a good general stores/ post office, a couple of restaurants, chip shop, and a regular bus service to Mevagissey and St.Austell. It would be ideal for a young family, or for those who want a quiet holiday; or for keen walkers - there are footpaths over the cliffs. It was all very clean - no litter anywhere. It was a lovely holiday, and I hope to go back again. June 2011.
  5. Lounge and kitchen had been recently refurbished. V good. Well set up for families. April 2011.
  6. The property has been redecorated with new kitchen fitted, the photos need updating. It exceeded our expectations and we had a wonderful stay. April 2011.
  7. The cottage was clean and well-presented. Very comfortable and warm. Oct 2010.
  8. Good size, and very close to the beach which is a bonus with small children. June 2010.
  9. The kids loved it! Beach excellent! Parking in the car park is a little inconvenient but the roads close to the beach are much safer as a result. Excellent for the beach, the village is gorgeous, typical old English beach, not commercial at all which is a big charm. July 2009.
  10. Excellent location, super sheltered beach for the kids! Excellent cliff walks for the dog and great fish and chips! Aug 2009.
  11. The cottage was homely and clean. Gorran Haven idyllic. Cornwall a touch of what I hope heaven will be like. May 2008.
  12. Great for dog owners and families, it felt very cosy and we enjoyed being able eat and cook together in the kitchen. April 2008.
  13. Wonderful beach, ideal for kids. Perfect base for visiting Heligan Gardens and the Eden Project. May 2007.
  14. 34 seconds from door to beach! Sept 2006.
