About the property

Gorran Haven 5.6 miles.

Overlooking the remarkable waters of the English Channel in the quaint hamlet of West Portholland, rests this charming holiday home, 2 Cliff cottages.

Offering a delightful nautical interior and boasting panoramic views across the coast, 2 Cliff cottages is an idyllic base for a romantic retreat to Cornwall.

Park up on the roadside and step into the striking stone-built dwelling, dusting off your sandy toes as you enter into the beautifully-appointed living/dining room, contemporary in design with a charming nautical blue décor whilst maintaining the property's original character.

Settle in on the sumptuous sofa to enjoy a moment of peace in front of the television after an action-packed day before heading through to the amply-equipped kitchen to prepare a romantic meal for two to enjoy gathered around the intimate dining table.

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, enjoy a spot of alfresco dining with a scenic view across the coast on the patio, soaking in the fresh sea breeze as you toast a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday, and ending the day in style with a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles in the hot tub.

As the day draws to a close, prepare for bed with a revitalizing rinse in the stylish bathroom, located on the ground-floor for your convenience, before heading upstairs where you'll find two thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, a charming bunk room, perfect for reading a goodnight story to both little ones at once, alongside a king-size bedroom, where you can wake as the sun rises over the water and floods the room with light.

Head out the door and kickstart your day with an invigorating dip in the stunning waters of the nearby beach, or soak in the views with a leisurely stroll along the scenic South West Coast Path, before exploring the close-by hamlet of East Portholland, a wonderful settlement that is the backdrop to Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children.

The fishing village of Gorran Haven is home to your amenities, enjoy a refreshing pint and friendly service at The Barley Sheaf, bask in the sun at Little Perhaver or walk the coastal path to the soft sands of Vault Beach and further along to Dodman Point, the highest headland on the south Cornwall coast.

Travel to the harbourside village of Mevagissey to spend a fun-filled day out exploring the fascinating sights on display at Mevagissey Model Railway and Mevagissey Aquarium, homing an exciting array of local marine wildlife.

Venture further afield to the vibrant city of Truro, boasting a marvellous selection of shops and eateries to suit a variety of tastes, along with the exhibitions of the region's wildlife and history on display at Royal Cornwall Museum and the remarkable architecture at the striking Victoria Gothic Revival Cathedral.

Be sure to explore the town of St Austell and visit the enchanting Menacuddle Well, enjoy a game of putty at the town’s golf club, or embark on an exciting experience at the stunning botanical gardens of the Eden Project, a great place to view and learn about exotic plants whilst enjoying great dishes from its variety of eateries.

Treat your loved ones to an unforgettable escape to the delightful coast of Cornwall with a stay at 2 Cliff cottages.

About the location

GORRAN HAVEN

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.
