Enjoy the stunning sea views from Venus cottage through the full-length French doors which open onto a private balcony from the open plan living area.
The original beams add a touch of heritage to the cottage and a Woodburning stove creates a warm and cosy atmosphere.
The stairs lead down to the bedrooms and bathroom.
Through the twin bedroom, a patio door leads to the private courtyard garden with a slate terrace, ideal for sheltered sunbathing and relaxing.
Both bedrooms have patio doors leading out to a small private patio area, which is opposite the pub’s beer garden.
Parking is conveniently available in a private car park nearby.
Nestling in the beautiful, safe & secluded cove of Port Gaverne are the Green Door Cottages – self-catering holiday properties. All have achieved Visit England’s 4* Gold rating (given in recognition of exceptional quality within a star rating).
The tastefully restored 18th Century fishermen’s cottages and Tregudda Apartments, sit a stone’s throw from the beach (one of the top swimming spots in Cornwall!); the majority of the hamlet and surrounding cliffs are owned by the National Trust – a walkers paradise on your doorstep and directly opposite is our local, the historic Port Gaverne Inn. The hustle and bustle of picturesque Port Isaac – film set for the popular TV series Doc Martin, home to our local sea shanty singers, The Fisherman’s Friends and the location of 2 Nathan Outlaw Restaurants (one of which has 2 michelin stars) – is only a quarter of a mile away.
A private sheltered courtyard is enclosed by 8 attached cottages (some with sea views), perfect for BBQ’s or soaking up the sun. The 2 Tregudda apartments sit just above the hamlet of Port Gaverne, and have breathtaking views straight out to sea.
All of our properties offer tasteful and comfortable décor, full self-catering facilities, free superfast wifi, flat screen TVs & ipod docks and we provide body boards and fishing nets for the kids – ideal for the ultimate day on the beach!
This is the ideal base from which to explore the stunning & dramatic scenery and beaches of the North Cornish coast – beautiful at anytime of the year. Relax in front of a roaring open fire with a pint of local ale in winter; sample the freshest of seafood at any number of fabulous local restaurants or simply lose yourself in the winding lanes and moorland areas of rural Cornwall.
North Cornwall is a superb location at any time of the year – come in the Spring and Summer months for the ‘picture postcard’ Cornwall – the county at it’s finest. But if you venture down in the Autumn and Winter, you will have the treat of experiencing the ‘real’ Cornwall – deserted beaches, wind-swept cliffs, dramatic storms, cosy pubs with welcoming log fires….. and always a warm and friendly welcome from the locals!
I grew up in Port Gaverne - my parents owned and ran the Port Gaverne Hotel for 34 years, during which time they bought the Green Door Cottages and Tregudda (which was my family home). It was a wonderfully safe and amazing place to grow up. I now live just over an hour away on the edge of Dartmoor, with Mike, my husband, at our family home. We like to spend at least one day a week in Port Gaverne, usually Fridays - there's always plenty to do and it's a good day to catch up with guests. I took over the reins when we sold The Hotel in 2002, and have spent the intervening years rejuvenating the cottages and apartments to the 4 Star quality that they are today. It's been hard work - but thoroughly enjoyable and I get a huge buzz from seeing our guests return year after year - many with grand-children and even great grand children - to enjoy the cottages and the area.
We are very much a family business and I'm lucky enough to have fantastic people to work with - my Maintenance/handyman lives on site and my 3 housekeepers who are all from Delabole, just a couple of miles away, have worked for my family since they were teenagers - they all do a superb job.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1985
