A lovely comfortable cottage. One of the old Coastguard Cottages in Gorran Haven. It has been wonderfully restored & brought up to date, while still retaining a traditional feel. As you would expect for a coastguard's house it has lovely sea views and is only a 2 minute walk from both the main beach at Gorran Haven, as well as its namesake beach Little Perhaver, which is accessible down some steep steps a short walk from the cottage. The cottage is particularly special because of its beautiful garden - full of amazing plants and flowers, it really has a fairytale feel to it.
This cottage works well as a quiet hideaway for a couple or with Beachcliff (opposite) and Sea Witch (very close by) for a larger family stay.
Little Perhaver Cottage in the middle of the terrace of nineteenth century coastguard cottages. It overlooks the harbour and out to sea from an elevated position above Little Perhaver beach.
This cottage is both cosy and traditional and comfortably modern. It would be the perfect place to stay for a garden enthusiast, the rear garden is beautifully planted with a seating area at the top, with shade of apple tree. The front terrace has a south facing patio with more planting below. Outside dining table and chairs.
Built in the days when the residents of Gorran Haven needed a bit of law inforcement in their midst to discourage the trade in contraband the coastguards were settled here from outside the area and had the job of keeping an eye on things. All rather more genteel now, I think
Little Perhaver has a parking for one car in the enclosed area below it (shared with the neighbouring cottage) off the quite narrow, Cliff Road.
From the gravelled parking area steps and a path lead through flower beds and palm trees to a slate terrace with outdoor furniture with a sea view. Solid fencing either side provides privacy.
At the rear of the cottage, sloping upwards gently, is a magical garden with winding pathways through lovely shrubs to a seating area under an apple tree. This garden is not however ideal for small children because it is so fully planted.
Downstairs: From the front terrace, the front door opens onto a large living room with kitchen and dining area at the rear and sitting room area at the front. There is fireplace with log burner, traditional Chesterfield type sofa and two upright armchairs (all with firm upholstery and scatter cushions) in the front. Sash windows at front and rear let in lots of light. Very pleasant traditionally styled interior with everything you need to relax on holiday. Downstairs has original polished wooden flooring with rugs.
The kitchen is well equipped and there is a dishwasher, microwave and an Aga cooker which also runs the heating system. At the rear of the kitchen there is a utility room/porch (washing machine, tumble dryer) with back door to rear garden.
Upstairs: carpeted stairs lead to landing.
