Mrs Pegram September 2017
Just overall an outstanding property. Just perfectly spacious, well equipped and clean. The views are outstanding and I would thoroughly recommend for a fantastic, stress-free holiday
Mrs Jellis August 2017
As the last thing you would wish to see on a freshly made bed is blood from a previous guest (let alone the single bed which was used by a child), despite the views being lovely, the inside of the property was not 'good' so unable to give even 3 stars.

We were so sorry that you found some blood on the pillow and we're glad that you called us so that we could address the problem. We've followed up the points you raised with the owners and the housekeeping team and were pleased that we were able to come to a satisfactory resolution for you overall. Bryony, Customer Support
Mr Wells July 2017
Only that I think there should be mention of the steep climb back to the property. My wife and I were prepared for this, having sussed out Parc an Gates the previous year. We came complete with a trolley to cart all of my grandchildren's beach clobber back up the slope! ( still hard work)
Thank you again.
Mrs Franklin April 2017
This was our second visit and love the house and location. There were six adults and a four year old in our party and it was perfect for us all. We can't wait to stay again next year.

I would not wish to promote this property to families unless safety measured were put in place.

Thanks for taking the time to review Parc an Gates. We're sorry that you didn't feel comfortable opening the sitting-room doors to the balcony - we do draw attention to the balcony in our description and clearly show photos of it, as well as advising guests that care should be taken with children. However your suggestion to fit window restrictors to prevent inquisitive younger guests opening the bedroom windows is a good one, and we've passed this on to the Owner. If you'd like any specific information about any of our cottages and their suitability for your party, please don't hesitate to give us a call. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Clark August 2016
This is a lovely house in a beautiful area of Cornwall. The house is of a high standard and well equipped for a family holiday.The pictures are as we found it! The beds are comfortable with good quality sheets and towels supplied. The bathrooms are very nice and also clean! The kitchen is also well equipped for cooking meals and well thought out.The beach is literally 3 minutes walk down the hill and was fantastic..we had 3 small children with us and it was ideal. The views from the back of the house out across the harbour are stunning! We had a great time.
Mr Clapham August 2016
If you want a truly great base for a holiday, for all ages, one with an amazing view, beautiful walks on your doorstep, sea kayaking for the more adventurous, and a warm set of locals to while away a few hours over a coffee, a beer or a cider, this is the place to come. But please don't book immediately as I have yet to book next year's return!
Mr Walters July 2016
A spacious property with outstanding views which is well equipped, marred by weeds by front entrance and overall poor cleanliness.
Reply from Classic Cottages
'Thanks so much for your review and we're glad you enjoyed the truly wonderful views. We'll certainly ask that this front entrance area is tidied - the weather has been mild and damp, and that can send the weeds into overdrive very quickly! We're very sorry that you felt the cleanliness needed a little more attention - we'll pass this on to the Housekeeper to check out. Bryony, Customer Support'
Mr McMahon April 2016
This house is in the best location imaginable. However if hills are an issue then be aware the route to the beach is steep. Equipment and furnishings are what we expect in our own home, wonderful place to stay looking st returning next year.
Mrs Franklin April 2016
Amazing house, wonderful location. Definitely has the Wow factor. Very sad at the end of our week to be leaving...We have booked for next year! It it the best house in every way we have stayed in.
Mrs Henderson August 2015
Simply perfect! Cant wait to return again next year. Gorgeous house in a gorgeous location. We've fallen in love with Gorran Haven! The house exceeded our expectations and its in a fab location so we could walk to the beach, fish and chip shop and bakery in just 5 minutes.....a little longer when walking back uphill!
Mr Rowe August 2015
Stunning house. Stunning location. Loved it.
Mrs Higgins August 2015
Excellent accomodation , very spacious and comfortable . Wonderful location . We enjoyed a great family holiday and now have lots of memories to share. Thank you very much !
Mrs Padgett August 2015
This was our 1st visit to Cornwall, we found this house to be a great location and handy to the local coastal walks. Great for a family and close to the beach, well equipped kitchen and plenty of parking
Mrs Taylor July 2015
A great holiday house for families in a superb location with outstanding sea and beach views. Next year we are coming back for our fourth visit; two separate weeks with both of my children and their families. Great family memories from our previous 3 visits!
Mrs Glenister July 2015
This is a beautiful well appointed house, ideal for a family holiday. The views are to die for. We had such a lovely week and the accommodation was such that we could bring our rather large family together without feeling we were all living on top of each other. I wouldn't hesitate in booking Parc an Gates for another reunion.
Mrs Malfiggiani June 2015
A stunning property in a beautiful location with views to die for.
Mr Howell May 2015
A Cornish gem with views to take your breath away. The property was in excellent order throughout, comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. The room layout over the 2 floors, with ample bathroom facilities, was exceptionally practical, especially for families with young children.
Mr Swarbrick March 2015
A real gem of a house in a superb location.
Mrs Dick February 2015
Best house we have rented over many years of renting from Classic Cottages and other agencies in the West Country.
Mrs Shaw December 2014
Just got back from spending a week at Parc an Gates. The property is excellent, immaculately clean and includes everything you need. The best of all is the view from the lounge windows which is stunning. Not a lot to do in Gorran Haven but we were having a family chill out holiday so it suited us. Probably in the summer there are more places open but they close in the winter. However there is a small village shop which caters for nearly everything you need. All in all a fabulous property and we will certainly be returning sometime.
Mrs Turner October 2014
The property is great & the location is fantastic.
Mr Spaight August 2014
A modern, spacious house with fantastic views. Sandy beach and local shops all very close. Gorran Haven is a wonderful unspoilt village- a real find.
Mrs Taylor July 2014
Like: View. Proximity to beach. Comfortable beds! Open plan living areas. Space for the children. Garden mown this year so children could play outside.
The new kitchen and bathrooms are a real improvement - so is the balcony! Top spec house now.
We very much hope to come again! Thank you for the 'heads up' about the Polgooth Inn - great meal.
Mr Elliott June 2014
Parc an Gates is a beautiful property with fantastic views of the sea. It is clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. Safe and well set up for children. Great location for the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Noye June 2014
This is a wonderful place to stay - incredible view with the living arrangements set out to take full advantage. Ideal property for those travelling with elderly relatives as adequate bedrooms/general living area all on one level. Our second visit already with plans to return again next year.
Mrs Lynch May 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Parc an Gates. The view was unbeatable and the house was luxurious and comfortable. It was also spotlessly clean. We would love to revisit one day.
Mr Jones May 2014
Ideal for a family break with good accommodation, stunning views and quick access to beach and village facilities. Thoroughly recommended.
Mrs Aplin April 2014
It is the perfect holiday location.
Mrs Kennedy April 2014
A great opportunity to enjoy a family holiday and unwind.
Mrs Turner October 2013
We are a returning customer of many years. We love the area, the house, as its just right for our family.
Mrs Hobbs August 2013
Parc an Gates is a fabulous house that take full advantage of the spectacular views. Its location is great for the coastal path, beach & village (providing you are fit enough for the steep lanes!). The accomodation is light, extremely spacious, well laid out and very comfortable. It is well equipped with a large enclosed garden and ample parking. Overall, an excellent holiday home and a pleasure to have stayed there.
Mrs Noye June 2013
Parc an Gates is a beautiful property with stunning views across the harbour in Gorran Haven. Initially chosen for our holiday because of the view depicted in the pictures it surpassed our expectations. I travel with elderly relatives who are not always able to venture out every day. The panoramic views (from the huge picture windows) of the daily activities in the harbour and on the beach are entertainment in themselves. The property is mainly set over one level with two of the bedrooms, lounges, dining area and kitchen all on one level which again is excellent for those less able to cope with stairs. Its effectively like a bungalow with the added bonus of two further bedrooms, bathroom and utility room, downstairs if needed. It is very spacious, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable.
The coastal path is on your doorstep and it takes all of 5mins to walk down to the harbour/beach (though be warned coming back its all uphill)! There is a convenient local shop/PO and a Fish n Chip right down by the harbour and if you are lucky (as we were) it is also possible to get some fresh mackerel direct from the local fishermen!
We had a couple of trips out and about, Mevagissey was very pretty with many "tasteful" gift shops and galleries as well as the usual souvenir shops. The Eden Project (for us) was expensive, disappointing and overrated - perhaps more for a younger family wanting an "educational" day out? The Lost Gardens of Heligan (practically on your doorstep) were beautiful with lovely tea rooms and farm shop too, well worth a visit. Its also worth driving along the coast roads as you frequently come across hidden coves many of which you can drive right down to and park practically on the beach!
Overall a truly lovely place to stay on holiday - we are seriously considering returning again, as for us, it really did tick all the boxes!
Mr Jones May 2013
Great location for a quiet and relaxing break.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
