As well as being convenient for the beach and coastal path, Sea Thrift is a cosy spot for an off season break. It is well insulated with adjustable radiators in all rooms and fully double glazed - highly suitable for those seeking to explore this beautiful part of Cornwall out of peak season.
Linen and towels are provided.
Cot and highchair are available.
Electricity and heating are included.
There is central heating and constant hot water.
Sea Thrift is just in front of the owner's main house Zebulan, but is completely separate, with its own distinct patio areas to front and side. Zebulan is an ‘upsidedown’ house and has a garden at the rear, meaning that the occupants of the chalet and the house can be quite independent.
The property is approached up a sloping private driveway from Canton. You can drive up to the front of the chalet to unload, but vehicles must must be parked on the street below (out of season) or in season in the village car park at a cost of £24 a week 150m away.
Front patio: A low hedge surrounds a small slate paved patio with seating in front of the chalet, wooden French doors open to the sittingroom.
Side patio: French doors from bedroom open onto the side patio with slate paving surrounded by curved slate topped walls. This is a pleasant place to relax with garden furniture and table for dining.
Inside can be found an open plan sitting-room, dining area and kitchen.
The living area has a sofa, armchair, TV, DVD, CD/cassette/radio. There is an oak dining-table and chairs for 4.
The kitchen area has fitted units, an electric hob, oven, extractor fan, microwave, toaster, integrated fridge with freezer compartment and integrated washer/dryer. There is an iron and small ironing board plus all the necessary equipment for cooking and dining.
The double bedroom has a 4’6” double, good quality divan bed. There are bedside cabinets each with side lamps. There is also a linen cupboard with small hanging space and a full length mirror.
Sea Thrift is up a sloping private driveway joining Canton opposite the Harbour’s Reach café. The café is on the left as you drive down (towards the sea) into the village.
The driveway levels after about 20 yards, then you turn left down the drive to the main house and Sea Thrift. The village of Gorran Haven still retains a quaint old-fashioned atmosphere to it. It has 2 sheltered sandy beaches encircled by a quay. From here you can walk along the coastal path either to Mevagissey or in the opposite direction towards the Dodman point. The path is abundant in flowers and birds, especially in the off-peak Spring season. Further afield can be found the Eden Project (30minutes drive) and The Lost Gardens of Heligan (10 minutes drive away. There is also the whole of the Roseland peninsula to explore with its vast stretches of unspoilt beaches and coastal paths.
