  • "Stunning location above Little Perhaver Beach, watching the tide come and go was an amazing experience, along with sound of the sea waves, washing onto the beach below."

    Beachcliff was a very obviously loved property that the owners have stamped their own identity on. The coal and log fires were a lovely touch in the evenings, during the stormy nights, giving the property a lovely cosy warm feel. Immaculatly clean, with very comfortable beds adding to the relaxing stay. This lovely property grow on me day by day as week went on, meaning I I didn't want to leave... I will definitely be back in the near future,

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our family cottage. It is a very special place and we hope you are able to return for another holiday before too long. Thank you again. Property Owner

  • "It would have been helpful to have some instructions for the cooker and microwave."

    It took us ages to work out the microwave - maybe it was just us!! Beds and settees were very comfortable.

    Thank you for your feedback. All the instructions for the kitchen appliances are in a small basket inside the meter cupboard to the right of the cooker. I will make sure this is written in the Beachcliff welcome pack. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Property Owner

    It is very comfortable and only a short distance from both the beach and the south west coastal path.

The property

Located in the picturesque village of Gorran Haven on Cornwall’s south coast, Beachcliff is the perfect destination for a family holiday or equally for a group of friends to enjoy.

Within the Cornwall Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty, Beachcliff enjoys a simply sublime setting with captivating sea views.

All the accommodation is conveniently placed on one level making for ease of access and is warm and welcoming, ensuring visitors enjoy a memorable stay.

Within a short walk are safe beaches, the coastal footpath, and shops.

The small general store ‘Cakebreads’ is where you can buy basic daily items; they also provide wonderful pasties and other savouries as well as teatime treats.

The fish and chip shop in the village is highly recommended, and The Barley Sheaf pub and restaurant in Gorran is just a mile away.

Take a seat in the living/dining room which boasts incredible views of the sea and coast beyond.

Watch the sun rise over the sea from the outdoor, covered decking area where you can enjoy eating and drinking alfresco, or take a few steps down onto the enclosed lawned garden where the picnic bench is perfectly-positioned to be able to make the most of those all-important coastal views.

After all that fresh air, you’ll be ready for bed so pick from three, calming bedroom spaces; a double and two twins, one of which contains two child-friendly two-foot-six-inch beds, and two of which have delightful sea views and offer a relaxing sleeping environment, ideal for catching some holiday shut-eye.

Come morning, when you’re refreshed and raring to go, after a quick wash in the shower or a relaxing soak in the bath, head out for the day to explore the wonders on your doorstep.

The nearby beaches are very special, with Gorran Haven and Little Perhaver beaches just a short walk away, or take your pick from other sandy beaches, including Vault beach, within walking distance from Beachcliff.

Further along the coast path are delightful Hemmick and Caerhays beaches, otherwise reached by a short drive.

The cottage is perfectly sited for walkers and you can head out from the door East or West along the South West Coastal Path with amazing views and scenery along the way.

Attractions in the area well worth visiting include the Eden Project, and the fishing village of Megavissey, or jump in the car for a scenic drive and to enjoy attractive nearby villages to the west such as Portloe, Veryan, St Just, St Mawes and Tregony on the Roseland Peninsula and to the east, Fowey with its lovely harbour.

The area is well known for its many spectacular gardens with the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the wonderful spring gardens at Caerhays Castle within five miles.

For a wonderful, varied holiday to remember for a lifetime, be it on the beach, walking or enjoying the other local attractions, book a break at Beachcliff.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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.

Please note the property sleeps a maximum of 6 guests including children and infants
