Thrift was originally part of a large cob barn used by local fisherman for centuries; it has now been adapted into a cosy one bedroom cottage retaining its history whilst being refined into a modern holiday retreat perfect for couples. Rated 4* GOLD by Visit England.

Thrift is the smallest of our properties and therefore the exposed beams, comfortable furnishings and tasteful lighting create a snug and inviting atmosphere perfect for relaxing after a windy coastal walk.

The open plan kitchen, complete with Delabole slate floor, and dining/living area, look out onto the courtyard garden allowing access to the sun loungers for catching some rays or perfect for an evening barbeque. The double bedroom leads into a shower room, off of the main living area and provides a compact and intimate holiday cottage. Parking is conveniently available in a private car park nearby.

The courtyard garden is shared and is made up of a level grassed area with flower borders and a childrens sandpit. It is south facing and very sheltered and private. Wooden garden furniture and sun loungers are provided. It is very safe and suitable for young children. External lighting in the courtyard is lit automatically during hours of darkness.

Thrift is located a stone's throw from the picturesque and unspoilt National Trust cove at Port Gaverne which is perfect for swimming and rock pooling. OS maps of the local area are available - enjoy amazing walks along the coastal path just meters from your door towards either Port Isaac or Tintagel, or venture further afield to Daymer Bay, the popular surfing beach at Polzeath, cycle or walk the Camel Trail or visit Padstow.

Newspapers/milk can be delivered. Body boards, fishing nets & croquet set available for guests use. Surf boards and kayaks also available to borrow (the owner cannot accept any responsibility for any injuries sustained).

Our local pub & restaurant is located directly opposite, and bar meals can be delivered direct to your door.

Thrift is ideal for couples who desire a holiday or short break and can also be booked together with one or more of our properties here at the Green Door Cottages, making it perfect for groups of family and friends holidaying together for either a special occasion, or simply to spend time together.

"Excellent cottages"

The cottages are located in the centre if Port Gaverne just a short walk into
Port Isaac. High standard accommodation, with neutral well maintained decor and furnishings, comfortable beds, all linens provided, and a welcome basket of coffee and tea. Kitchen area well supplied with crockery and cooking utensils. We arrived to a warm and lit cottage, just needed to unpack and relax.

Thank you for taking the time to send in the review - so glad you enjoyed your stay in Thrift and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Green Door Cottages in the future.
