House by The Beach - Holiday Cottages

Welcome to House by the Beach! We look after 20 or so holiday cottages and houses all close to the beach in a small and beautiful area of coastal South Cornwall, UK.

House By The Beach began with Hillside, our house in lovely Gorran Haven - a small village with a sandy beach half way down the south coast of Cornwall - then as friends have asked me to look after their houses too, it has grown. Now there are 20 or so properties. Most are in Gorran Haven but some are along the coast a little, in Portloe and some are in the countryside nearby. They are all different, but all are within easy reach of a beach.

Cornwall is home to some of the UK's cleanest beaches and the Roseland Peninsula is also home to some of the most beautiful which, even during the summer months, remain relatively uncrowded.

From the pretty village of St. Mawes, which looks out over the River Fal towards Falmouth, around to the old fishing village of Mevagissey, are fabulous beaches, coves and villages steeped in marine history and Cornish tradition. Veryan, Tregony and Ruan Lanihorne are just a few of the unique villages dotted over the peninsula that have become popular with tourists, boasting good restaurants, attractive shops and a number of galleries.

Holiday Accommodation

Perhaver Shepherd's Hut - slps 2

The Shepherd's Hut is lovely for a romantic holiday or for a lone person just taking time away. It is comfortable in winter and summer. The lovely curved wooden deck with a rope balustrade overlooks a large lawned garden with a wide panoramic view of the bay. The cliff-scape and rocky headland to the east is dramatic an uplifting. A view you would willingly walk miles of cliff path to see, visible easily and constantly from your deck - or even, your bed.

There is garden around the hut. The 20 metre lawn slopes gently towards a surrounding hedge with the cliff edge beyond and sea below.

At one end of the hut is a large, comfortable double bed with lots of cushions and an unbroken view of sea to the far horizon. A TV and DVD player is conveniently positioned close by. There is a well planned kitchen and dining area (with hob, small oven, microwave, and fridge). Breakfast bar with tall stools and small fold down table with 2 chairs is dining table for two or desk for working novelist who wants to gaze at sea. A smart shower room and wc is a pleasure to see with it's high quality and neatness.

The space has been used with elegant economy using fine natural materials. Thick natural oak shelves and work surface, and vintage style wooden board flooring all reflect the brilliant natural setting. There is under-floor heating, WIFI, and lots of books. It is cosy, with excellent insulation & double-glazing.The double doors can be opened to include the curved wooden deck as part of the living space. There is a BBQ, outdoor dining furniture and sun-loungers for two

Dolphin Cottage - slps 2

Dolphin Cottage is a pretty, three storey cottage at the end of the historic terrace known as Sea View Cottages, which overlooks the cove on the eastward side of Portmellon. From every room the sea (or sand, at low tide) is within a few feet of the window. From the front door to the beach slipway is about 30 yards.

There is wifi, electric (night storage) heating and hot water. It is newly decorated and carpeted. The entrance is on Portmellon Hill, which leads up towards Mevagissey. There is a pull in space near the entrance gate where it is possible to stop to unload, but parking is either in the public carpark by the beach, or on Portmellon Park both about 50 yards away.

Through a gate, down a few steps and along the communal walkway that leads to five cottages, Dolphin cottage is the first and has dual a aspect looking over the cove in two directions. Outside the front door there is a small outdoor space with bench and space for a barbeque. Lovely view over the wall opposite, to the sea and rocky pools below. Honeysuckle by the glazed door.

The front door opens into a sitting room, with a small open fireplace (working), three seater sofa, armchair, coffee table, TV and DVD player. Large rug over vinyl flooring. Up the stairs with fitted slate blue carpet is a second sitting room with double sofa (bed), armchair and folding circular dining table and chairs for four. On the other side of the stairway is a brightly painted kitchen with fitted units, electric cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, spin dryer. Windows over cove, beach entrance and the lovely wooded valley inland. Vinyl flooring.

Upstairs on the third floor is a romantically styled double bedroom with window overlooking the cove, double bed with wrought iron headboard and pine chest of drawers. Fitted hand basin and mirror to corner. Across the stairs, the bathroom has bath (shower over), WC and pedestal sink. Range of fitted cupboards containing immersion heater for hot water. There is another delightful sea view to brush your teeth to and also from the bath tub!

This is a lovely place at anytime of the year. It is high up enough to watch the winter sea from above! In spring and summer the atmosphere is of old fashioned beach hols.

Beach Cottage - slps 6

There is no cottage in Cornwall closer to the beach as the house was built on the beach itself. Beach Cottage is a superb 3 bedroom cottage standing at the head of Gorran Haven beach. Newly refurbished to a high standard, it has wifi, dishwasher, central heating, 2 bathrooms. It has a lovely balance of old fashioned atmosphere alongside the smart, practical features. Romantic and perfect for secret getaways - and of course, beach holidays with all the family!

Built before the sixteenth century, it enjoys spectacular views of the coast and harbour at Gorran Haven. From the sitting-room window you can look across the beach, to cliffs to the east and west, and to the little island, the Gwineas, on the horizon ahead.In a matter of seconds, you could be sitting on acres of soft, sandy beach at low tide; or when the tide is in, with the waves lapping the walls below the window, gazing out to sea, watching birds over the water and boats sailing by.

Internally, the house comprises sitting room, dining room, kitchen, hall, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and utility room. The house has been sensitively restored to include seventeenth century panelling and Cornish traditionally exposed stone-walls. Fired Earth kitchen and top spec bathrooms provide a luxurious level of comfort. There's also an induction range, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer dryer, television (with DVD player) as well as fast internet; everything you need to make life as comfortable and relaxing as possible. In addition, high quality mattresses and bedding ensure a perfect night's rest!
The main bedroom is, to my mind, the best room and has a window looking out across the bay - this must be the best vantage point in the village for that view. Lying in the kingsize bed at anytime of year, you will know you are in the heart of Cornwall. This house has a lot of heart, of authenticity - fine cotton bedding, thick towels, polished wood. To reach the main bedroom, you pass through one of the twin bedrooms. It has matching antique single beds with linen upholstered head and footboards (with new mattresses). There's a full length mirror and a window with nice side on view of the beach and boatyard over the flat roof next door.

The second twin bedroom, to right of the stairs, is also well appointed and has a window onto Church Street.

Outside space: like most of the very old cottages in the heart of Gorran Haven, Beach Cottage has no private garden; the beach is your garden! From the front door you can pop around the corner onto the Plat and watch the beach from above, in your deck chair. The two sandy beaches and the quay can be your picnic venue. Fish and chips on the quay in the early evening is lovely (there is a good fish & chip shop in the village). Barbeque on the rocks on Little Perhaver is another option.
