The West Country region
This south west county enjoys a milder climate than much of England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular all year round self catering holiday getaway.
South Cornwall and the Roseland Peninsular are known for an area of outstanding natural beauty and much is National Trust Owned.
Gorran Haven’s major attraction is its golden yellow sand and small harbour. Fishermen can fish from the quay or cliffs and seasonal boat trips operate from the village or Mevagissey. Boat moorings can be rented from the local Fishermen’s Society who own the harbour.
Gorran Haven has a convenience shop with Post Office, newsagent and bakery where fresh bread and pasties are still baked on the premises. The newly opened Llawnroc Bar, Bistro and hotel is only minutes way and serves real ales, bar food and has a family restaurant. A mix of seasonal tearooms, cafes, gift shops and a fish and chip shop compete for the summer visitors’ patronage.
The South West Coastal Path passes by the cottage and the village is surrounded by some of the more spectacular cliffs on the Cornish South coast. The Coastal Path can be followed in one direction to Mevagissey and to the majestic National Trust owned Dodman head in the other direction and on to the beautiful sandy beach at Caerhays. It is possible to walk to or from Mevagissey and use the bus in the other direction.
The internationally renowned Lost Gardens of Heligan are about 4 miles away and the Eden Project is about 15 miles away.
On the other side of The Dodman headland, Caerhays Castle holds a national collection of Magnolias and extensive collections of Camellias and Rhododendrons including some of the original introductions into the UK. The whole garden covers some sixty acres and even in March and April at the height of the Cornish spring flowering season it has a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere.
Mevagissey with its famous double harbour has many fish restaurants and gift shops in its narrow streets. A seasonal ferry service operates to Fowey.
The valley from Pentewan to St. Austell has a footpath and cycle trail along the route of the old narrow gauge railway. Cycles can be hired at Pentewan.

"Beautifully presented cottage with stunning views"
This cottage is a really well equipped, cosy and inviting. It has fabulous views over the sea, harbour and headland with coastal walks from the village. Gorran Haven is a delightful Cornish village with all the amenities that were need for a very relaxing break. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the delightful gardens especially sitting in the front garden drinking in the views.

"Great views from the cosy living room , well equipped and user friendly cottage."
We stayed in Horizons in March and found no problem using the small layby as Carolyn suggests for parking. The local shop was well equipped and we used it every day, also the Asda in St Austell is massive! Good walks on the doorstep, close to all the best places to see in Cornwall and the Northern coast is not far either. Local pubs: try The Barleysheaf - good local ales and cider - food was good too. Also The Crown in nearby St Ewe was a lovely old pub .

"An excellent holiday home in a delightful Cornish village; highly recommended"
A recently renovated coastguard cottage, completed with evident love and thoughtfulness. The nearby cliffs and beaches make for first-rate walking and relaxing. Its proximity to, in particular, the Lost Gardens of Heligan is a definite bonus. If it is this good in November, what must it be like in the Spring and Summer?
Thank you for your review and acknowledging our effort in making a warm, comfortable home. This was much appreciated.

"Really lovely cottage in a great setting"
The pretty cottage had everything we needed and was very clean and well presented. It is ideally located for the beach, the lovely little shops and the surrounding countryside which is great for walking. We didn't take the car out for the first four days! The people in the village were all really helpful and the shops sold everything we needed including mugs of tea and coffee that we could take onto the beach!. We were so lucky with the weather!
Thank you for your review. Our aim was to make the cottage home from home and am delighted that it met your expectations. Thank you
