Bedroom details

Bedroom 1


This former Cornish creamery has been converted into a delightful coastal retreat for two. Situated on the edge of the picturesque fishing village of Gorran Haven, The Old Dairy is a ten minute walk from the sheltered harbour and beach where kayaks and paddleboards can be hired.

The semi-detached cottage welcomes a dog and keen walkers will enjoy the scenic coastal walk to Mevagissey, or why not pack up a picnic and walk to the beautiful Vault Beach and Dodman Point for the day. The boutique hotel The Llawnroc is a short stroll down the lane and a lovely spot to enjoy an early evening drink on the terrace overlooking the bay.

There is plenty to explore locally; the nearby village of Mevagissey with its narrow streets, shops and old pubs clustered around the harbour is well worth a visit. The wonderfully restored Lost Gardens of Heligan are close by and Caerhays Castle is open in the spring when the magnolias, rhododendrons and camellias are in full bloom for gardeners to enjoy, there is also an excellent local beach cafe here which in summer hosts acoustic beach sessions and outdoor cinema nights.
