Beachcombers

Gorran Haven, CornwallSleeps: 8Bedrooms: 4Bathrooms: 2

Home > Our Properties > Beachcombers
Awake to gentle waters and golden sands with an escape to this traditionally stylish Cornish cottage on the south coast.

Narrow streets and rows of picture-postcard fishermen’s cottages wind down towards Beachcombers. A tranquil cottage in Gorran Haven, this luxury holiday home is perched on the seafront with unrivalled views over the sandy cove. Occupying an exclusive position among three beachfront cottages, this is an idyllic retreat for making fond summer memories. 

The property sleeps up to eight people across four bedrooms, two large reception rooms, along with the bonus of two well-appointed family bathrooms. The cosy wood burner creates a toasty bolthole for storm watching in the winter months, whilst the generous dining terrace overlooking the beach is the perfect spot for evening barbeques in the summer. Equipped with Smart TVs and a Sonos sound system, this traditional cottage has a contemporary twist. 

Located in a sheltered spot with two sandy beaches on the doorstep, families will love the calm waters that bring the perfect opportunity for kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming. 
 

Beachcombers is a traditional Cornish cottage set in an enviable position just above the water. The property is accessed by a 100-yard walk along a pathway from the road and has no parking facilities outside. The owner provides two parking permits so guests can park their cars in the village car park, which is located a five-minute walk away. 

Keen hikers will relish the South West Coast Path located on Beachcombers’ doorstep, providing scenic walks to the fishing village of Mevagissey or the beautiful Vault Beach and Dodman Point. Venture slightly further afield along the breathtaking Roseland Peninsula to discover empty beaches and quaint harbour villages.

 

  • Sea views
  • Outdoor terrace
  • Two wood burners
  • Direct beach access from the garden
  • Private patio from the master bedroom
  • Classic Cornish interiors

More about theFirst Floor

Dining and Living Area

Beachcombers boasts an open plan dining and living space; a great hub for socialising with friends and family. After a family meal at the wooden dining table, retreat to the plush corner sofa and surrounding armchairs to warm achy feet by the crackling wood burner. Cosy up for the evening with a glass of Cornish fizz in hand, in front of the Smart TV. 

Kitchen 

The bright and modern kitchen sits below characterful wooden beams, well equipped with a Neff oven and ceramic hob, microwave and dishwasher. Socialise with the chosen holiday chef from the comfort of the breakfast bar and stools as you help with dinner preparations. 

Snug 

With the open plan kitchen leading onto the snug, there’s plenty of room to come together without sacrificing individual space. Cosy up by the wood burner for a film on the Blu-ray/DVD player or catch up on your favourite Netflix series. If you ever tire of the peaceful sound of the waves outside, connect to the Sonos sound system and fill the first floor with your favourite playlist.

More about theExterior

Garden 

Delight in the unspoilt views over Gorran Haven’s glimmering waters from the comfort of Beachcombers’ garden. As you take in the view, gather around the outdoor dining table for al fresco feasts cooked on the charcoal barbeque. Please note that Beachcombers and the two neighbouring cottages share private step access from the garden to the beach, which is a bit steep and rocky. 

Gorran Haven Beach

Beachcombers occupies an unparalleled position on the sea front at Gorran Haven Beach, located a stone’s throw away from the picturesque sands and quaint fisherman’s village. The beach is dog-friendly year-round. 

Parking

The unique beachside location means the property is accessed via a 100 yard walk along a pathway and therefore has no parking facilities. The homeowner provides two parking permits for guests to park in the local car park a five minute walk away.

Gorran Haven

Outdoor pursuits

Walkers can hop onto the South West Coast Path for rural views, while watersports fanatics can take advantage of the sheltered coves for kayaking and paddleboarding. Plus, family fishing afternoons are a must on a sunny afternoon. 

A short drive will bring you to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the world-famous Eden Project, both fantastic days out. For golfers, Carlyon Bay is home to an 18-hole championship golf course while local vineyards such as Knightor and Bosue are perfect for an afternoon spent sampling delicate wines.

Beaches and watersports

Directly in front of the village, Gorran Haven Beach is a pretty and sheltered cove, protected by the staggering 400ft Dodman Point. Neighbouring Little Perhaver becomes accessible at low tide and both beaches are dog-friendly.

For larger expanses of sand, keen walkers can head west for a short stint towards Vault Beach. Otherwise, hop in the car and seek further seclusion in the form of the Roseland Peninsula, dotted with golden beaches, gentle waters and picturesque harbour villages.
 

Food and drink

From afternoon teas and cocktails to special evening meals, Gwineas Bar and Bistro is a must-visit. Ever so slightly further afield will bring you to the Barley Sheaf pub, the perfect stop off for a light refreshment on your way back from a fun day out. 

With many beaches and harbours located along the south coast, tempting pubs and restaurants are plentiful. Neighbouring Mevagissey is home to several, such as Salamander, which serves fresh local seafood. For truly special occasions, the Michelin-starred Driftwood Hotel near Portscatho promises a memorable dining experience. 

Time for pampering

The luxurious Cornwall Hotel and Spa offers a wide selection of treatments to soothe frayed nerves. Feel your stresses melt away with a glass of bubbles in hand and a visit to one of the relaxation rooms.

Perfect for an evening of celebrations, our concierge team can also arrange for in-house spa treatments at your holiday home.

We stayed at Beachcombers for the last week in October and couldn't have asked for a better location to chill with the family. We loved watching the moody weather and big sea from the comfort of the sofa while in our PJs in front of the log fire. The house was very well equipped for the eight of us and big enough so we didn't feel on top of each other, it was also spotlessly clean. Easy walk to a great fish and chip shop, local shop and a 15 min country walk to a pub - everything we needed! To top it all off, we simply walked through the gate in the garden to get onto the beach - the weather wasn't great but that meant better waves for bodyboarding! Would highly recommend!!

The Edgecock Family, Wokingham | Trustpilot - May 2021

Fantastic location and a beautiful house.

The Long Party, Surrey | Google - May 2021

Absolutely staggeringly fantastic!! We and the kids and the dog will be back next year 100%!

The Bradley Party, West Midlands | Google - May 2021

Such a great week in a wonderful cottage in this beautiful location. We loved that when we arrived a little package of scones, jam and cream were waiting for us. The steps down to the beach were very handy and a dream come true to hear the sound of the waves crashing in the morning. Thank you.

The Turner Family, Leicestershire | Guestbook - May 2021

An excellent house with ample living space and a wonderful view across the beach and harbour. As frequent visitors to Gorran Haven over many years, this was the perfect spot to celebrate our 70th birthdays with our family.
