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!

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am delighted that you enjoyed the cottage and agree that nothing is nicer than sitting outside admiring the harbour, sea and headland particularly when having breakfast on a sunny morning.
