Doubtnot is the bright pink three bedroom bungalow on the hill behind the beach at Gorran Haven. It is 120 paces from the sand and has large picture windows that capture a lovely view of the sea and cliffs. It is a well loved family house, with parking, garden, deck, Wifi and dishwasher. Very convenient for cliff path walks and a well behaved dog is welcome to come and stay too (there is a £30 charge for your dog).
It has parking, Wifi, garden with deck, 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. And is in a quiet location off Foxhole lane on a small private drive (next-door to Harbour Hill and St Keverne).
The house is elevated on a grassy slope, reached up a short flight of steps with a rail. It has an undulating, lawned garden (enclosed on 3 sides) and a deck from which you can enjoy sea views. Unusually, for the heart of the village, it also has ample parking for two cars with skill you might park 3 cars, but easily two.
A path leads round the side of the house to the main entrance. In this quiet area there is a small table, chairs and a bench – a good sunny spot for morning coffee. The BBQ is also stored here and this path is gated at 2 points to provide a contained area for dogs to be outside.
At the side of the house above the lawn, there is a pleasant deck with outdoor furniture which has a quiet situation and good sea views. Perfect for lunch or an evening glass of wine.
The front door opens onto the hallway in the centre of the house from which all the rooms lead. A built in cupboard for the vacuum, ironing board and coats.
The kitchen has white fitted units, new worktop & flooring. It is well equipped with a dishwasher, double fan oven, fridge freezer, microwave, ceramic electric hob, extractor fan. Plenty of chinaware and utensils etc. There are two windows looking onto the garden.
The back door opens from the kitchen onto the rear lawn and the path around the house to the deck.
There is a separate utility room containing washer/dryer machine and a second fridge. The utility room has its own entrance and is a good place to store wet suits or surf boards and there are buckets and spades etc. to borrow.
The sitting-room has two large windows and a fine view of the cliffs and sea. A three seater sofa and 3 armchairs at one end and an extending dining table (seating six) at the other. Sideboard and 32 inch flat screen TV and DVD player. Also a spare drop leaf table, useful for half finished jigsaws!
The family bathroom has bath with electric shower over, wc and basin. Wall heater, vinyl flooring.
The main bedroom is at the front with another large window and sea view, (being elevated the house is not overlooked by neighbouring houses). There is a very comfortable Super king sized bed (6 feet wide zip twins), fitted wardrobe, dressing table and bedside tables.
The ensuite bathroom has a white suite of w.c, basin with storage under, a separate glass shower cubicle with electric shower, a large bathtub, illuminated wall mirror with shaver socket, electric heated towel rail, wall fan heater and is fully tiled complete with underfloor heating.
The twin bedroom is also at the front, (between main bedroom and sitting room). It has a pair of 3ft divan beds and fitted wardrobe. Airing cupboard and electric heated towel rail. Window with sea view.
The smaller third bedroom has very sturdy 3ft wide pine bunks, chest of drawers, wardrobe and a window looking onto the side garden.
General: The house has fitted carpets throughout and is double glazed. It has electric night storage heaters, back-up oil filled electric heaters and immersion heater for water.
The garden is a continuous undulating lawn on a slope down towards the parking area; it is hedged or fenced on three sides of the house so is screened from the neighbouring houses (which are not particularly close), but the frontage is open to the shared driveway. The neighbouring lane is very quiet
This side of the village is very convenient for the lovely walks along the National Trust headland, the Dodman and beyond. From the front door to the start of the cliff path is a quick nip with dog on lead or fishing rod under arm.
Doubtnot is about 120 metres walk from the beach. We think Doubtnot is best suited to a maximum of four adults and two children. (or two adults and four children!), six adults would be a squeeze in the living area and bunk bedded room.

HOW TO FIND US
Foxhole Lane, Gorran Haven,Cornwall, PL26 6JP
First, get to St Austell, then… From the A390 in St. Austell (A390 is main Truro-Liskeard road) take the B3273 to Mevagissey (at the ‘B&Q’ / Mac Donald’s roundabout).
After one mile is the small village of London Apprentice; a further mile or so, the village of Pentewan. At Pentewan the B3273 ascends a long winding hill overlooking the sea on the left.
Turn right at the cross-roads at the apex of the hill, following signs to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Gorran Haven.
The alternative route to Gorran Haven, through Mevagissey is not recommended in Summer as there are often lengthy traffic queues in the narrow streets. If you have a Satellite Navigation System it will try to urge you through Mevagissey, but this is not a good idea unless you are in a very saintly and calm state.
Assuming you turn right, then: You will pass Heligan Gardens after crossing a narrow bridge and negotiating a sharp left hand bend. Follow the road for about five miles to Gorran Churchtown – church is on the left – down and up a dip and around another sharpish left hand turn. A couple of hundred yards along is the right hand turn to Gorran Haven (sign-posted).
The road into Gorran Haven descends a long hill (Bell Hill) past a triangle of green with a telephone box. Continue on as road winds through the village towards the sea. The road gets narrower and narrower. Past the car park field on the left, you then come to a cluster of little shops with the sea in view at the end of the road. When almost at the sea, turn sharp right on to Foxhole Lane (sign in front of you), basically making a U-turn up the hill (rather tight).
Doubtnot is the pink house on the left of the short private driveway, which in the first turning on the right, about 70 yards up Foxhole Lane. There is a sign by the road saying 'Doubtnot & Harbour Hill' There’s parking for 2 cars outside the house.
From the turn on to the B3273 in St. Austell to Gorran Haven should take about 25 minutes.
