  • "This is a lovely cottage in a great location - we will definitely want to stay there again."

    There are just a few niggles which could do easily be fixed to make it a full 5 stars: there is nowhere to hang wet swimwear to dry so a small washing line or some hooks outside would easily fix this issue The patio area needed a bit of tlc - a sweep - and we really struggled with the TV which didn’t seem to have the usual channels (eg BBC) so we had to log in to our own Disney account etc - but otherwise, we would highly recommend this lovely cottage!

  • "Great little cottage."

    Could benefit from a new bed and a washer/dryer would’ve been really useful just to freshen towels up after a few days. Otherwise lovely, clean and beautiful location. I do wish owners would stop using covid as an excuse now to not service you though?

  • "Beautiful cottage stunning location perfect for a relaxing break."

    The sweet treats were nice and very welcome, couldn't find any wine glasses which would've been helpful as we do like a nice glass of wine in the evening, but on the whole had a really great stay and have recommended cliff cottage to family and friends

  • "The cottage was lovely and in a great secluded location with the beach on your doorstep, it was well equipped bar a few basics but being self catering that is understandable, unfortunately the bed mattress did not agree with my wife and I and we both felt it very uncomfortable which affected our sleep."

    I am aware that everyone is different so mattress comfort can be difficult.

  • "Location superb."

    Attention to detail in some areas let it down. Outside area needed a clean and thorough sweep. The mattress in the main bedroom needs changing. A lack of helpful detail in your handbook eg TV instructions, description of local cafe, restaurants. Providing better and bigger towels is required. We did enjoy our stay, just a few tweaks would have made it 5 star!

  • "Lovely cottage, really cosy with everything we needed."

    Real care and attention was out in to make our stay really amazing and the location is also beautiful. We will definitely be returning so thank you for making our stay the best break we have had in a long time

  • "The cottage is absolutely perfect if you are looking for a quiet get away!"

    me and my partner spent the whole weekend in the cottage with out really feeling the need to leave, everything essential for a weekend stay is provided in the cottage all that we had to worry about arriving with food and water lol! The hosts do a great job of ensuring the bedding, towels, bathroom and kitchen utensils are spotless. The cottage was immaculate upon arrival and it is clear to see the cottage is well looked after all year round. There was one slight issue we encountered and that was the fact the hot tub wasn't heated and ready upon arrival................ However, this is very much a first world problem and would 100% not effect my decision to stay here again in the future!

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


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.
