So love this cosy well positioned, looking out to sea, Bay Cottage in Gorran Haven. Warm and cosy and well equipped. The beds are comfy firm with fresh bedding and towels provided. With three double bedrooms and two showerrooms and two loos it makes it ideal for a bigger party of folks. The views from herd are awesome. First photo and last is of today's sunrise at 6.30am and 7.30am. One wakes every morning at sunrise to see the birth of new day and the glorious colours and cloud a scapes it often brings. The owner phinrd us on our day of arrival to check all was ok. I had asked for fresh bedding and towels to be provided a week into our stay which Lisa the cottage clean happily and readily provide on the following Friday. Just one day we were rained off. Light Cornish , cloud, mist on a couple of days otherwise blue sky , sun and up to 22 degrees. Thankful I packed plenty of suncream. Did the stunning coastal walk to Dodman Point and friends did the one the other way to Mevigissey. Worth visiting the local Polmissick Vineyard and Poppy Cottage garden which is near Truro but phone or email to check they are both open before going there. Victoria Gardens in Truro town is well worth a visit. Even in September there was plenty of colour. It is an hour's drive from Gorran Haven to Falmouth. There is plenty to see and do in Falmounth. My favourite place is the town's main ary gallery with the library under it. Ask to see the paintings in the basement as not all their top master collection is always on display, due to current modern art displays being out. It does depend on if they have enough staff to be able to show you the painting in store in the basement. For Sale! Was very disappointed to see Bay Cottage is up for sale. In August I went to enquire about booking again for 2019 God willing. Would buy this place in a heart beat if only we had the spare cash. So now it is not avaliable to book up unless brought soon and the new owners put it on the holiday rental market. We live in hope.

About the location
Mevagissey 3 miles.
Once a crab fishing village, Gorran Haven on the south coast of Cornwall is ideally placed to explore the many beaches and coves in the area. Gorran Haven has a small sandy beach set behind a traditional sea wall, connecting with the longer Great Perhaver beach at low tide and is popular with families. Much of the coastline in this area is owned by the National Trust and is readily accessible from the South West Coast Path that passes through Gorran Haven. Within walking distance are a number of more isolated beaches and the 370 feet high Dodman Point, rising above Gorran, which is thought to be one of Cornwall’s most dramatic headlands, and the cause of many a shipwreck. From its gorse-covered heights there are views across Veryan Bay to the west and Vault Beach to the east. Alternatively, you may wish to walk the coastal path to the harbour village of Mevagissey. Near Gorran Haven, in a beautiful setting of woodland, stream and pasture, is Caerhays Castle, an informal 60-acre garden on the coast near Porthluney Cove. Nearby attractions are the wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project, Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum and the cathedral town of Truro, with an excellent range of quality shopping and dining.
