Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Gorran Haven - Arosa

Quiet Location, but just 10 minutes Walk from the Lovely Beach

The holiday cottage is situated on the edge of the beautiful seaside village of Gorran Haven in a quiet and pleasant cul-de-sac of detached bungalows.

Arosa is surrounded by its gently sloping gardens and faces south across the village with tantalizing glimpses of the sea through the trees.

There are lawns all around the bungalow with plenty of room for children to play and parking for 2 cars.

Inside there is plenty of space with the rooms all decorated in a light and contemporary style and is all on one level. (Please note there are few steps up to both doors).

The safe sandy family beach and interesting harbour at Gorran Haven is just a 10 minute walk away and you can also join the nearby coast path allowing to walk to the harbours Port Mellion and Mevagissey a few miles away. The coast path in both directions is very beautiful and allows you to explore the area and discover hidden beaches and coves that are quiet even in peak season.

Gorran Haven has a fantastic local shop 'Cakebreads' which supplies all the essentials as well being a great little bakery with fresh bread each morning, in season there are also the mermaid cafe next to the beach, a fish and chip shop and a beach stuff shop for buying your buckets and spades.

For an easier option than walking with bags of beach stuff and young children there is on some on street parking just back from the beach in Gorran Haven out of season and a reasonably priced large car park in season.

The village pub “Llawnroc” has been fully refurbished and providing a restaurant and bar overlooking the sea. A short walk up from Arosa is the village playing fields with tennis court and children's play area. If you walk for another few minutes you get to Gorran Churchtown with its great pub the Barley Sheaf that offers good food and real ales.

About John Greenslade

I live in the south west of England with my wife and two children.

John Greenslade purchased this cottage in 2009

Why John Greenslade chose Newquay & St Austell area

My mothers family has lived in Gorran Haven for a number of generations so all my childhood I heard stories of this beautiful Cornish village by the sea. I recently had the opportunity to buy my Aunts bungalow in the village so I jumped at the chance and after some refurbishment we are now enjoying as many holidays here as we can.

What makes this cottage unique

We love visiting our cottage in Gorran Haven as we can spend lots of time in and out of the sea a short walk away and know there is a fantastic hot shower waiting for us at the end of the day Arosa is a lovely cosy holiday home with a good sized safe garden for children for children to play and only a short walk to the beach and coastal paths. You are close enough to the beach, shop and pub whilst still being in a side road that stays quiet even in August.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second family Easter at arosa. My 3 grandsons had a great egg hunt in the beautiful garden. It is a well equipped house within walking distance of the beach with a lovely cafe and fish & chip shop. The barleysheaf pub is a few minutes drive away. I recommend arosa for a family holiday. We will be returning next year!!!

A little piece of Heaven in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was spotless a real home from home, everything you could want for a relaxing break, felt a home straight away. This is the first break in rented accommodation that we haven't had to do cleaning as soon as we got there, everything was first class. and in a wonderful quiet position. John has been so helpful , we definitely want to return to Arosa again. I would recommend this property to family and friends. We visited the Lost Gardens Heligan and the Eden Project which are situated very close to Arosa. WE had plenty of places to visit from Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor, and of course the beautiful beaches and Lands End, so many interesting places to see, and eat out.

We were three differen't generations, but we all agreed we had found a lovely place to stay and a wonderful area to explore.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Late booking but this did not cause any problem for the owner who made sure the contacted us to ask what our requirements were and provided excellent directions/instructions via e-mail. The house was warm, comfortable and well equipped with modern kitchen and bathroom. Spacious garden and good position for exploring the St Austell area were the icing on the cake. Make sure you visit Heligan just down the road, a fab day out for all ages.

It was well equipped and had a roomy kitchen, small-children friendly and sited very near to a lovely sandy cove with shops (selling ice cream!!) and cafes - and a good pub in the next village of Gorran. We would certainly recommend it

This was our second stay at Arosa. The bungalow is set in the beautiful village of Gorran Haven. The property is a delight to stay in with lovely big rooms that accommodate a home from home environment. Big comfy beds and plenty of storage, lovely log fires which my daughter enjoyed roasting marshmallows on. The property is clean, tidy and well maintained. Would highly recommend to rent this property. Plenty to do and see. Lovely time ...............thanks John

Great stay in a loveley, well stuffed Cottage

  • 5 of 5

From the first contact with John, troughout our stay during 11 days in the cottage "Arosa", everything was just great. We enjoyed the well furnished and complet equiped, very quiet cottage. John gave us allready in advance all instructions and helpful adresses for a stressless stay. The cottage is at least like listed in the description, tops it even in several points, it was very clean and everything what we needed, we found in the equipment of the Cottage.

We travelled trough all parts of Cornwall, from South to North, till Land's End. The cottage is well situated und you can reach all places of interest more or less in a short time.

We can warmley recommend this cottage.

Thank you John for the perfect service.
