An excellent cottage for the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I stayed in this cottage for our 'mini-moon' and it was just what we wanted. The cottage is very cute and situated in the very peaceful Gorran Haven. The cottage itself was the perfect base for exploring the area but also ideal if you want to have the odd night in too. It was very much a home from home and our dog settled in very quickly! If you stay you must try the fish and chips from the shop from just down the road and the bread from the local baker opposite. Mevagissey is a an hours walk away along the coastal path which gives you just enough time to build up an appetite and thirst so you can really enjoy all it has to offer!

Can't recommend this place enough if you are looking for a peaceful holiday. Carolyn was excellent to deal with and helped make our first week of married life very special.......thanks for the bottle of fizz too!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our requirements; quiet, comfortable, clean and well equipped. We were lucky with the weather and sat outside for breakfast several times - if the sun is shining, the garden is a real sun trap, even at 7:30 in the morning in May. At that time, the only sounds are the sea, songbirds, and the gulls calling. No traffic noise at all - wonderful.

This is a great area for wildlife and wildflowers, with the sighting a basking shark fin gliding through the water, just beyond the Gorran Haven harbour wall, being the highlight.

Lovely , compact cottage in a wonderful location.

  • 4 of 5

Well kitted out. All you need in a small, but cosy cottage. Not much going on in Gorran Haven, but it is well situated for visiting nearby sites. Lovely coastal walks.

We had a lovely time.

Wonderful location, very comfortable well equipped accommodation but could have been cleaner

  • 4 of 5

Great to have seating front and back to enjoy the sun at all time as well as the wonderful views. Short walk to the beach and pub, or a little further to the fun "cake breads" bistro. The neighbours were friendly and the locals chatty. The village is a great base to explore Cornwall or just enjoy the quiet bay. We would thoroughly recommend Horizons and look forwards to our return visits.
