About John Greenslade
I live in the south west of England with my wife and two children.
John Greenslade purchased this House in 2009
Why John Greenslade chose Gorran Haven
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 have owned Arosa for about 9 years and rented it to families each year. About 18 months ago embarked on a major remodeling project to transform the property into a modern, spacious, luxurious open plan house that I had always dreamed about and this is finally being completed in May 2018.
What makes this House 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 large modern property with plenty of room to relax with your family and friends and 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.
Max guests:8 (sleeps up to 8 adults)
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Brilliant holiday, fabulous property
This property was perfect for our needs and the standard of the accommodation and contents were outstanding. Will definitely visit again.
Hello Fenella, thank you for your fantastic review, it’s so good that you enjoyed staying at Arosa and had a great holiday. I hope we can welcome you back again some time. Kind Regards john
A beautifully appointed property in a 'proper Cornish' village.
This holiday home is a lovely bright spacious house which is very well equipped, beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean. A very welcoming property. As a large family with a toddler with us we were able to cook and barbecue easily.
Four bathrooms and lovely spacious bedrooms meant everyone had their own space but plenty of opportunity to all be together in comfort in the large and sociable kitchen and living space. It enabled our family to have a very special week together and create some wonderful memories as well as reliving old ones!
We are long time visitors to Gorran Haven and were able to walk down to the beach, walk the coastal path and enjoy enjoy the best crab sandwiches ever at the local shop, Cakebreads. The house is in a perfect location to explore this beautiful and much underestimated part of Cornwall.
Communication with John, the owner couldn’t have been better and having overlooked a small item when we left this was very kindly sent on to us.
We will look forward to returning . Thankyou
Lovely house in a quiet setting. Everything extremely clean and comfortable. Lots of places to visit in the surrounding area. Especially impressed with Heligan Gardens.
Thankyou for your great review, I am very glad you found Arosa very clean and comfortable for your holiday.
My housekeeper Liz greatly appreciated your kind note.
I hope you may be able to stay again in the future, it would be great to welcome you back.
Beautiful Arosa in a beautiful location
Everything about Arosa was as described. We travelled as 2 families and were overwhelmed at how beautiful Arosa was. It was home from home. The space was plenty big enough for both families with 4 very large bedrooms. Three of which were en suite. Everything has been thought of at Arosa. Perfect welcome touch with Cornish shortbread and wine!
The beach and cafe is a 10 min walk. We did the Dodman Point walk and found Vault Beach. A must see secluded beach which was reached by a coastal walk.
John was a fantastic host who was always on hand if we had questions.
We loved Arosa so much we’re already booking for next year!
Thank you for your great review, I am so glad you had a amazing holiday at Arosa and enjoyed Gorran Haven. Its great news that you have booked again for next year and it will be fantastic to welcome you back.
Good communication. Helpful & friendly. Great space for family with 3 en-suite & family bathroom. Beautifully finish & minimal decoration. 5-10mins walk to beach & cafe. Quiet & peaceful setting. Ideal for coastal walks. Thank u
Thank you for your lovely review, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Arosa and had a great holiday, I hope you may be able to stay again in the future.

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.
