Why Nicholas Aiken chose Newquay & St Austell area
Gorran Haven is such a lovely location with beautiful beaches and a great seafront. The scenery is stunning and there are many lovely walks. It is near the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project.
What makes this bungalow unique
It is a very gentle amble, some 4 minutes to the seafront. The general store/post office is only 3 minutes away. Vault beach is a spectacular beach which is 20 minutes walk away. There are just so many wonderful places to visit which are not too far away.

Lovely relaxing holiday
We had a fantastic holiday in this lovely bungalow, enjoying the quietness of this picturesque and unspoilt village with lots of stunning walks along the cliffs. The property itself is very comfortable and contained everything you could need and more. Highly recommended.

Great family holiday
We've just had a lovely week long holiday down in Gorran Haven with our 2 young boys. We were able to relax and enjoy the surroundings boys playing creative games in the garden whilst we could relax and read in a sheltered spot in the garden when the sun was out. Lovely short walk to the harbour beach so even though it was coat and wellies weather everyone got to enjoy themselves and make the most of local area, although you don't need to leave village if you don't want to, the bungalow has everything you need to make for a relaxing break away and facilities in village provide everything too!
Would definitely recommend and to families with young children (ours are 10 & 5)!
Lovely property in a great location
My family stay here a lot and I decided to stay here for a week as its so local to our needs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was made better by great weather which helped us spend time outside and enjoy the garden peacefully.
Whilst the property is in a good location it is sadly dirty and in need of renovation. As no cleaner is employed holiday makers are asked to clean the property, and even empty the vacumn. The property needs a thorough deep clean. The garden is overgrown and neglected as a result of which there is no light to the back of the property. hence the damp foisty smell. The wardrobes in the master bedroom are not fit for purpose as they are so damp all clothing stored in there starts to smell after 24 hours. We left early and raised these issues with the owner to no avail. I cannot recommend this property and would never book again. Gorran is as fabulous as ever though!
