Harbour Hill is quietly situated off a private lane a short (3 minutes) walk to the sandy beach. This is a good property for families, coast path walkers and anyone who prefers everything on one level. It has the big advantage of ample parking, which in the older part of the village, is hard to come by.
It is a brilliantly spacious and practical house that works well for various different age groups. Ideal for families or friends.
During the non-peak season or last minute, smaller groups using part of the house for reduced rates are very welcome.
Linen and towels are provided and electricity is inclusive. A cot and highchair are also available. We have a folding single bed if required for an extra child (£30 supplement).
There are ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms suitable for anyone not wishing to climb stairs. One family could be upstairs with another downstairs. There are 5 wcs in total & 3 bathrooms.
The garden is enclosed and can be easily monitored from the deck or kitchen - good for small children.
It has a lovely light aspect throughout. It has been entirely refurbished. It is also good for just sitting on the deck doing nothing, reading, socialising. The landing tv room has a huge picture window overlooking the garden, cliffs and village - a lovely place to sit and relax.
The house and garden have sea views and the beach and cliff path are less than 150 metres from the door.
The living area is one large space, with kitchen, dining area and sitting room with french doors opening on two sides of the house, making the deck, garden and patio easily accessible.
There is a fast track route for the sandy and salty returning from the beach, straight to the tiled shower area at one end of the house next to the utility room.
Flooring is wood laminate except in the bedrooms where there is fitted carpet. The oil fired boiler supplies central heating and constant hot water. There is a log burner in the living room.
The driveway to Harbour Hill is about 80 yards up Foxhole lane on the right. In front of the house there is a tarmac parking area.
At the front a sandstone patio attracts sun all day long and has outdoor seating.
A walkway along the side of the house, leads to 45’ level lawned garden fenced all around - good for football and badminton.
There is a raised deck joined to the house (accessed from house by French doors) with outdoor dining furniture and BBQ. There’s a pleasant view of the sea from deck and lawn.
Front door opens to entrance lobby with coat hooks.
Cloakroom: with wc & basin
Sitting room with dining area:
Two leather sofas, rug, 28” TV, DVD, fireplace; dining table and chairs. This is a large light room with windows onto front and back of the house. French doors open from both sides onto deck and garden and front patio.
The kitchen is open plan, divided from the dining area by a breakfast bar. There is a nice sea view from the window which also looks onto the garden. There is a dishwasher, microwave, electric hob, oven, and larder fridge. There is a second fridge freezer in the utility room.

The stairs lead to a large landing with a comfortable tv viewing area. The whole rear wall is glazed with french doors opening to a delightful Juliet balcony overlooking the garden and sea view beyond.
The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and en suite bathroom. There are two windows, making this a lovely light space.
En suite bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, wc, sink. Two windows.
Upstairs twin (or second kingsize) bedroom with 3 foot zip twin together beds which can be arranged as a super kingsize bed if required.

Harbour Hill is at the end of a short private driveway off Foxhole Lane - the quiet hill that leads down to the beach on the south side of the village. Foxhole Lane borders the National Trust land and its nature reserve around Dodman Point. The South West Coastal path is a short walk from the front door, leading to lovely cliff walks and two further, more secluded, beaches at Vault and Hemmick. This is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village of Gorran Haven has everything you might need on a daily basis - 2 sheltered sandy beaches, a fish and chip shop and a General Store selling freshly made cakes and pasties. Up the road can be found the boutique Llawnroc Hotel with its fine-dining restaurant and 1 mile away up the road is the welcoming Barley Sheaf - a cosy traditional pub with beer garden. Within easy striking distance is The Eden Project (30 minutes drive) and The Lost Gardens of Heligan (10 mins drive)
