Zion Cottage is a good traditional cottage on the hill leading to Gorran Haven beach. It has two bedrooms but can sleep 6 as there are neat built in bunk beds in the 2nd bedroom
Zion cottage is an old 2-storey fisherman's cottage on the road which winds down to the beach at Gorran Haven. It is full of character, still having the old wooden floors, oak beams and low ceilings.
You enter straight off the small pathway which is signposted to Little Perhaver Beach, just off Church Street. You are directly into the dining-kitchen. This is light and airy, decorated in a white and blue scheme with white bare floor-boards and Shaker-style units. There is a dining table with bench seats and 2 chairs from which you can observe the comings and goings on Church Street (but critically they can't see you as you are elevated above the street).
The kitchen has a modern American-style fridge and electric cooker; it is equipped with all the necessary cooking equipment. From here a narrow hallway leads to both bedrooms. The first bedroom is a brightly decorated double, again with a view over the street below. The second bedroom has twin beds and a built- in sturdy bunk bed so it can actually sleep 2 adults and 2 children. The somewhat steep stairs take you down to the cosy living room. This is traditionally decorated with one wall of exposed stone and another of wood panelling. The ceiling has original oak beams and the floor is tiling covered by rugs.
Although you can see Church Street through the windows, again privacy is maintained by the net curtains. The bathroom is also located on this lower floor. It is equipped with an electric shower over the bath, plus basin and WC. Next to the bathroom is a small utility room with washing machine and tumble drier. This property is ideal for its location so close to the beach - the path to Little Perhaver beach actually goes past the front door!
Although there is no outside private space, the beach can be reached within 1 minute.
Like all of these fishermen's cottages, there is no parking at the property although it is possible to pull up outside and unload. The car then has to be parked at the nearby village car park at the bottom of the hill (at a cost of £24 a week). The cottage is equipped with a stair gate but it must be advised that the stairs, whilst quaint and in-keeping with the property, are steep and the bathroom is on the lower floor and the bedrooms are on the upper floor.
