Lovely cottage with great country feel to it, the children loved the living room and exploring the bedrooms and the garden. Sue the owner was fantastic and made sure we had everything. Ideally placed for the local beaches and easy access via main routes of Cornwall. Loved this cottage and will hopefully come back again

Gorran is a place to experience the real Cornwall and get away from the crowds. Yet it is also ideally placed to explore the coast and hotspots like Mevagissey and Heligan before heading back to the tranquillity of the cottage. The cottage itself is traditional and romantic in its style and there is fine dining available in the local pub. Its a bit of a gem.

Spacious quaint cottage in very quiet location. Great for getting to various beaches and the coastal path on foot (if you like walking). Close to Gorran Churchtown with a convenient little village stores. Lovely welcome cake and bottle of wine on arrival. Sue, the owner, lives next door and was very friendly and welcoming. Well-equipped kitchen and the 'dairy' was a great area for storing stuff. Good value for money as long as you are prepared to manage with one (downstairs) bathroom and no dishwasher (which might be slightly more difficult with 6 people in the cottage).

The cottage is very secluded and private but within five minutes walk to the village.

Super cottage in an excellent location and the owner was very welcoming but not intrusive. It was a great base for our family holiday.

A spacious and very comfortable cottage which is suitable for anyone that wants to get away from the crowds after their day out. A warm welcome was given by Sue who lives next door and we were given a lovely home made cake on arrival. The cottage is very well equiped, every thing we needed was there. I can highly recommend this cottage and it was very interesting speaking to Sue about the renovation of the cottage.

The cottage has everything you need and more its just a shame the outside area is shaded by a very overgrown garden. We had excellent weather and was unable to enjoy it outside the cottage. There is a big garden area at the back of the cottage may be the owner could consider letting the clients use it. As it currently of bounds to clients.

Thanks for sharing your review of this lovely property. The traditional cottage garden does have lots of established bushes and trees, very much in keeping with the property's style, but we're sorry that you felt it looked a little overgrown. The space to the rear of the cottage is retained by the owner but guests have private use of the garden, barbecue and seating area to the front - the sun does move around the garden for most of the day and you'll usually find a patch to enjoy somewhere.

The cottage is extremely clean and very well equipped. All the bedrooms are spacious, with ample storage space and comfy beds. The location is great because it’s close to some of the best beaches as well as to Heligan and the Eden Project, within easy reach of big supermarkets and farm shops, but yet very quiet and private.

We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in this lovely area. We'd always recommend that guests visit our fabulous farm shops, not only to cut down on 'food miles', but also to see (and taste!) what wonderful products are made and grown locally. We hope you'll come back again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

Superb - x2 adults and 4 kids under 10. Ideal.

Lovely cottage in a wonderful quiet location. Very well equipped and extremely clean. The owner Sue was very welcoming and helpful but respected our privacy at all times. Great location - I would recommend this cottage.

I can wholeheartedly recommend The Cottage at Polgorran as the perfect place to spend a family holiday. The standard of cleanliness at the cottage is second to none and it is fitted out with everything that could possibly be needed for a successful self-catering holiday. The cottage is situated in a very peaceful location but close to the village of Gorran Churchtown and is an ideal base for touring all parts of Cornwall, as well as enjoying many local attractions such as the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project, the pretty fishing village of Mevagissey, Charlestown (and other locations where the popular television series Poldark is filmed) to name but a few, with stunning coastal scenery and unlimited walks to enjoy.

A beautiful cottage in a great location,Gorran haven is minutes away,and is an idyllic place,and mevagissey,pentewan and st Austell are all a short drive away.Can't wait to go back again!

Lovely cottage in a quiet location which was well equipped a real home from home and the owner was very friendly and helpful.

We had a wonderful family stay, the cottage was both extremely comfortable & very well equipped . We thoroughly enjoyed the welcome cake & wine. We found it perfectly positioned for the visits we had planned.

Sue, the cottage owner, was very friendly and helpful and her orange drizzle cake was delicious!

The cottage has been wonderfully restored. It is in a lovely quiet location yet close to all sorts of amenities and especially the sea. Sue made us feel very welcome. It was a very relaxing much needed break. Wonderful.

A lovely cottage in a great location for exploring central Cornwall.Sue was very welcoming.

The cottage is beautifully presented and very comfortable. No corners have been cut; in fact, every tiny detail has been thought about. There was even fresh milk, a bottle of wine and a home made cake on arrival with a welcoming note personally addressed to us. I would definitely return in the future.

Tranquil location, but not far from the village. If you like the sound of bird song, you will love it! A great place to come back to each evening.

This is a highly recommended place to spend holidays. We loved it.

A wonderfully relaxing holiday. Thanks to Sue for the warm welcome and enabling a first rate experience. The cottage is situated in an enviable rural location yet close to beaches and the wonderul Lost Gardens of Heligan. Many thanks, we will be back

Great cottage in a lovely location. A special place to spend with family and friends for a birthday. Thanks to sue for her hospitality and friendliness.

This is a really comfortable cottage in a good location, we would be happy to stay again.

A lovely cottage in a very good location. I would highly recommend it.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location and done up to a really high standard. The owner was wonderful and my 18 month old loved it so much she finally took her first steps here! Absolutely fantastic and we will definitely be returning! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

A peacefull retreat to come home to after a hectic day out. Just the place to re charge batteries

An outstanding holiday home with an exceptional hospitality of the property.

We really liked the cottage, rural but only a couple of miles from Gorran Haven Beach. It was well situated for other beaches and places to visit such as Eden. The welcoming table laid for tea with a homemade cake and bottle of wine was wonderful after a long journey. The cottage had everything we needed and a great selection of DVDs. We hadn't seen The Goodies for years and had a goods laugh at our teenage children's reactions. There was a good range of films for children and adults. The kitchen was very well equipped, better than my own! The owner was very nice and the garden very pretty. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough to make use of the barbecue. I would suggest booking ahead for a meal at the local pub, we were turned away as we hadn't. So a quick trip to Tescos in St Austell meant we were stocked up. There was plenty of storage space in the dairy. We had a great stay, very relaxing.

What a wonderful and relaxing experience. The cottage location and fittings exceed expectations. Managed by a very considerate and thoughtful owner. The most restful sleep and healing achiveied in years - thank you.
