If location is everything then this superb cottage is everything and more! Set right beside the beach in the little village of Gorran Haven, the views across the harbour and sea are amazing. Tucked at the end of a footpath and one of only three houses facing out over the bay, 2 Fort Cottages is perfect for fabulous family holidays. The house is extremely well-equipped and the two big reception rooms – a kitchen/family-room and big sitting/dining-room – offer plenty of space for all. Sheltered by a stone sea wall that rises from the rocks below, the garden and slate-flagged terrace has lawns for little ones to play on and teak dining furniture for wonderful outdoor meals made all the more special by the sublime sweeping views. Private steps lead down to the beach, where sandcastle building and rock pooling will keep youngsters happily occupied, kayaks can be hired in the summer and the beachside cafe sells fresh crab sandwiches. The coastal footpath meanders along the cliffs towards the ancient fishing harbour of Mevagissey eastwards and the beautiful gardens of Caerhays Castle westwards, wonderfully scenic routes for those who love walking.
