Trelawney House is a recently renovated, "5 star" large detached Victorian property situated just 100 Metres from the beautiful sandy beach of Gorran Haven. During the high season, you can enjoy various watersports like kayaking, sailing, fishing, snorkelling and diving. For the more adventurous days out, why not travel 20Km to Newquay and try surfing, body boarding and kite surfing in the amazing Atlantic waves.

On sunny summer days the beautiful sandy beach at Gorran Haven and other breathtaking beaches in the surrounding area, are perfect for the children to enjoy an unforgettable day out. The "rock pools" along the coastline at Gorran Haven are teeming with sea life so don't forget those buckets and nets!

There is a lovely old fashioned peaceful feel about sitting on the beach at Gorran Haven with a mug of tea from the local beach cafe (which also sells delicious snacks and Ice cream) whilst the children play in the sand or fish in the rockpools. Then back to Trelawney house for a hot shower and dinner and a glass of wine in the beautiful, private front garden.

Off-season too offers its own rewards-stick the children in welles and a mac for a blowy walk along the beach, beach combing as you go then home, via a quick cider in the bar, to local produce, a log fire and family games. Maybe a trip out to nearby St Mawes and catch the ferry to Falmouth for lunch and arrive back at the house for a steaming mug of hot chocolate.

Every luxury you would expect: 2 large plasma TV's, SKY TV with Movie and Sports packages, a 2012 XBox 360 [please bring your own games], WiFi, DVDs with a selection of DVDs, Log Burner, Washing Machine, Dryer, softest down duvets and pillows, and a large Roll Top Victorian Bathtub in the Master Bedroom for luxurious bathing.

"A fantastic place to stay"

Trelawney House is located in a beautiful part of Cornwall called Goran Haven, about 100 yards from the beech. The house itself has everything you require for a good holiday. Fantastic size kitchen,… More

We are delighted you had a good holiday and pleased you found our home to be as it should be - comfortable and welcoming. The weather certainly was kind for you rather than the usual blowy March! And thank you for taking the time to post a review. Look forward to welcoming you at Trelawney again.

"A comfortable family home"

A big thankyou to Mrs Chapman, for letting us use her home. It was delightful, had everything we needed, Light airy rooms, comfy beds, large dining room, and plenty of room to sit in the evenings. Gorran Haven is known to us, and we found it just as enchanting as ever. The house was clean and tidy when we arriv ed, thank you Sally, the safe key worked well. We didn't need any help, we bought all out own food but did go to Lawnroc, sorry - didn't like it, bit too pretensious for us, also expensive. The cosatal walks were great, people friendly especially in Cakebreads, Barbara was just the same as when we all played cricket on the beach when we were all about 10 yrs old. If you have any influence on parish councils etc, tell them to keep Gorran Haven as it is, don't change for change sake! Enough of my rant - the weather for our week was fantastic, so we left we not only with rosy complections but rosy, fond memories for the winter to come.

We are delighted you had an enjoyable holiday. Trelawney is a much loved family holiday home and we work hard to ensure our guests enjoy it as much as we do. My best regards and very much hope to see you again; you can be assured of a very warm welcome!
