Jayne Holmes purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Jayne Holmes chose Saint Goran

We love Clovelly, it has a beautiful private garden, which is in full sun all day. The garden has flowering cherry trees which look beautiful in the spring when the blossom is out. The rooms are bright and nicely decorated, with lots of space to find a chair that suits you.

We have added Wi - Fi and a payphone.

We also have Freesat TV

Clovelly is far enough away from the beach to be peaceful but also near enough to walk to the beach in a few minutes.

Living in Gorran Haven means that we can look after Clovelly and if you do have any problems we are near enough to sort them out. We enjoy preparing Clovelly for each guest. We do want you to enjoy your holiday.

What makes this bungalow unique

Clovelly has its own enclosed garden, own parking. Peace and quiet. The post box and telephone box are just outside on the green, handy for posting all those postcards!

It is in walking distance of the local hotel, ideal for a meal out and handy walking distance to the local shop, teashops and beach.

Clovelly offers peace and quiet, a lovely garden to enjoy outdoor eating.

No stairs to climb, everything on one floor, with lots of rooms to choose to relax in.

We provide all bedding, towels and beach towels, allowing you more space in the car to bring the things you want to bring!

We also leave a cream tea for your arrival!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a perfect holiday home - clean, spacious, child friendly and already stocked with those things that make life easier but self catering doesn't normally provide. We had a wonderful stay and the cream tea was amazing! The garden is perfect for children and the location very peaceful, with fantastic views of the countryside. The beach is a 10 minute stroll away with a great local bakery and fish and chip shop there too. We'll be back!!

Outstanding service

Plenty to do & see in the area.

Beautiful beaches, shops 7 cliff walks in easy walking distance from the bungalow.

Wonderful home cooked meals from "Cornish country kitchen".

Beautiful bungalow, which had everything you could need for a great holiday. A lovely sized garden for my Granddaughter to play in and a tasty cream tea awaited us on our arrival, None of us wanted to leave at the end of the week, and yes, we will be booking to stay at Clovelly again!

Excellent bungalow!

Yet again another fabulous holiday! A very clean, tidy and well equipped bungalow. There is lots of space to loose yourself for some peace and a lovely peaceful garden to relax in without any disturbance and a chance to enjoy some sunshine!

The owners are very kind and nothing is of any trouble! Amazing coffee and walnut cake on arrival.

Would highly recommend this place!

Immaculately presented in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a few years ago. We do a lot of self catering holidays and what immidiately strikes you is how very clean and well presented Clovelly is. They obviously keep it in tip-top condition. Everything works and has all we needed. It's very comfortable and in a lovely location, with views over the valley.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th stay at Clovelly and as usual everything was perfect.Jayne and Richard lay on a cream tea on arrival much appreciated after a long drive.

The bungalow is beautifully maintained and immaculately clean.

The garden is large and safe for children to play in.

Clovelly is situated halfway up a hill that leads to the beach about 6 minutes walk away it's not too demanding a walk.

The beach is safe for kids and not too large with a bakers,chip shop as well as a couple of cafes.

We rate Clovelly so highly we've booked for next year already.

Indeed a truly 'fantastic'property

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday in Cornwall and the bungalow was perfect for some one with limited mobility and two young adults. It is clean, spacious, well furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Jayne, the host is very kind and we particularly enjoyed the cream tea upon arrival-My daughter spent the next two weeks trying to find a better cream tea but had to admit defeat.

It is ideally located for access to the beach, some lovely local walks and the rest of the Cornish coast. We would definitely visit here again and would recommend it to everyone.
