Lovely cosy cottage for 2 and a dog! Well equipped , and located just a short walk from the village beach and a longer but manageable walk to a large remoter beach that in March we had virtually all to ourselves . Local shop had fresh bread cakes and essentials and we had lovely chats with friendly locals .

Thank you for your review of The Old Dairy. The property is within a ten minute walk of the beach and harbour with plenty to see and do but a car is useful if you are planning to explore a little more of the county. Alison, Customer Support

Lovely, cosy little cottage for two, handy for doing some walking on the South West Coast Path. Well equipped, nicely furnished. Good bed linen and towels, and a really comfortable bed. Dog friendly though the back yard is tiny. Great food for a special meal out at the just down the road - and dog friendly in the bar.

We enjoyed the Old Dairy during our stay for a fortnight, especially when it was raining outside. There is plenty of space to feel very well and there are all fittings you need.

Located near the coast path with some absolutely stunning walks in any direction.

Our stay in the Old Dairy was just perfect. The cottage is wonderful and has been decorated to a very hard standard. The location is great and it is very easy to get out and explore in the surrounding areas.

A lovely welcoming cottage in a lovely village that smells wonderful.

The Old Dairy is a gem. It is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Cornish coast,so many walks from the doorstep-recommend walking to Portmellon/Mevagissey. Many other places of interest only a short drive away eg Caerhayes and Portluney beach. Gorran Haven is a lovely little village,locals very welcoming -appears to be a very community spirited place. So nice to see homemade jams and homegrown plants for sale alongside honesty boxes. The beach is fabulous, dog friendly-OK to let dog off the lead during quiet periods if well behaved. We couldn't fault the cottage or the service we received from Classic Cottages. Thank you!
