  • "A perfect holiday."

    the hot tub was a lovely bonus and so private. Amazing views. The treats left were very welcome. We put the dustbin out as requested but it was not emptied - maybe to do with being out of season, also no date for the recycling. Those are the only things but even that could not spoil our time. so peaceful - even if the weather was not great. Would recommend directions to the local garage as we found ourselves being sent down tractor lanes by the satnav, which was rather scary in the daylight and white knuckle gripping in the dark.

  • "The cottage was lovely, beautiful views."

    The hot tub was lovely it’s a plus for me the cottage was very clean and tidy, the welcome treats were amazing ,but the bed was really uncomfortable. If they would change the mattress and everything would go to a 10 out of 10 otherwise enjoyed my holiday it was beautiful.

  • "The cottage is in a beautiful location."

    It was spotless inside, which is credit to the unsung heroes working behind the scenes . A thoroughly enjoyable stay, and I would love to return some time soon as me and Ted..the Cocker spaniel had just the perfect break.

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage and stunning location a few thing’s disappointed me the hedge hadn’t been cut for a while so the view from the back garden was blocked, the hot tub clearly needed a water change it wasn’t the cleanest looking where the hose was it hadn’t moved for some time I know there’s a hose pipe ban but the hose pipe can be used for business use."

    And the last you need to add to your description that the fridge won’t hold a 4 pint milk in the door the fridge itself wasn’t big enough but apart from that beautiful

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful part of Cornwall."

    We did have an issue with stair rail not secured enough.The slatted bed seems a bit weak and mattress could be thicker and the settee under the cushions was full of hair and mess.But it is a lovely place to stay

  • "This is a lovely little cottage in a truly beautiful location."

    It is pleasantly decorated and we had a wonderful two week stay. The hot tub was great. The only negative I could give is that as we stayed for two weeks we would have liked a washing machine, which could have been installed instead of a dishwasher. Also the hedge by the hot tub needed trimming which spoiled the beautiful view of the sea and beach. I would fully recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing sea front stay in a beautiful location.

  • "This is a lovely place to stay - we’ve visited more than once and intend to go again."

    There are just a few tweaks that could improve comfort but nothing major. It’s a really beautiful cottage in a fantastic setting - ideal for our young son who just loves the beach. The only real niggle for us is that there is no washing/drying facility so our top tip is to take an airer and extra towels! Highly recommend this cottage ;-)

    Views amazing and hot tub an added bonus. Welcome gifts a welcome treat after a long drive. Would definitely recommend

    Thank you Sarah for your lovely comments. We are very proud of the hard work we had to put into the cottage to make it look so lovely. To be able to sit in the hot tub overlooking the beach and sea is indeed a real treat. Thank you again, and your recommendations are always welcomed. Best wishes. Property Owner

    The hot tub in the secluded garden looking out to sea was a superb finishing touch. The beach is a 30 second walk! We were placed here last minute due to a fault with another local property we were staying in, but one night here ended up making our holiday perfect. We will be returning here again!!

    Thank you for your kind comments and the lovely letter of thanks you left for us. We always strive to ensure our guests have the best possible holiday at our lovely little cottage overlooking the sea. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Property Owner

    Lower lock on back door was temperamental and needs fixing. Apart from the above everything was great and an amazing cottage, stunning location, wonderful stay.

    Thank you for your lovely comments about our beautiful cottage and we are pleased that you had a wonderful stay with us. I’m really not sure why you could not figure out how the oven worked as this has never been a problem in the past. However, we did get the lock looked at and indeed it needed replacing, so thank you for bringing this to our attention. Many thanks. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a stunning location which makes it."

    However, it wasn’t entirely clean, there were finger nails on the table underneath the cook books. There were also no settee cushions (only decorative ones) on the backs of the settees making for very uncomfortable seating. The mattress in the main bedroom was very uncomfortable. The hot tub was dirty (I have photographs) and so full of bubbles and chlorine (because it hadn’t been cleaned) it stung our eyes. It also ruined my silver jewellery, which I have never had a problem with wearing in a hot tub before. Again down to the amount of chlorine. My jewellery is very sentimental to me as most of it was bought as gifts from friends and family, so this I am most gutted about. Unfortunately I will not be recommending this beautiful cottage based on the above.

    If you want a quiet, relaxed stay, this is your perfect place. Swimming in the sea and back for a hot tub. Quiet bays/beaches on your door step. Falling to sleep to the sound of the waves in comfortable bed. I absolutely loved it. Thank you.

  • "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?

    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!

    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.

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.

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.

Note: Bunkbeds are only suitable for children aged 12 or under.

This property does not accept teenagers as the bunk room is unsuitable

There is a £35 pet supplement per pet per holiday
