Trelawney is a big handsome but practical house 120 metres from the sandy beach at Gorran Haven. It has high ceilings, wood floors, warmth and comfort and chandeliers. A fantastic family holiday house, easy going pleasures for children (own tv room and sandy feet happily accommodated on wooden floors) and relaxing adults. Much loved and great for both intimacy and entertaining. Honeymooners and gatherings welcome!

In the centre of the village, Trelawney is a large Victorian house with four bedrooms, two bathrooms (one ensuite) and two sitting rooms. It also comes with a full Sky package, wifi and outdoor dining in the pleasant terrace front garden.

There's parking on the (steep) driveway, a 2 minute walk to the beach and cliff paths. The house has a slightly grand atmosphere. It feels comfortable and relaxing because it has been filled with soft sofas, quality bedding and decorated in soft caramel colours.

The kids can watch tv or play on the xbox in the rear sitting room. The house is unusually spacious and generously run.

From the porch, you turn left into the dining room which has a large wooden dining table seating 8 and an impressive chandelier. From the dining room you go into a well-equipped kitchen with a range cooker and American style large fridge-freezer. On the right of the hallway, you will find the living room with wooden floors, rug, log burner and leather sofas. Go along the hallway further and there is a handy snug or children's room equipped with TV and Xbox. There is utility area here at the rear. 

If you go up the large stairway, you will find 2 twin-bedded rooms and a double bedroom (kingsize bed) and a family bathroom with a walk-in shower, corner bath and basin. Separate wc next to bathroom. The second floor which spans the whole upper storey, has the main bedroom with a superking one end of the room and a free-standing bath, pedestal basin and toilet tucked round the corner at the other. 

Christmas and the off-season times are lovely here - cosy on the inside with plenty of scope and space for celebrating special occasions. This is one of our very popular houses all year round.

At the front of the house there is a patio garden with large outside dining table and chairs. A washing carousel at side of house and shed at rear containing charcoal barbeque and some beach toys etc.

Trelawney House

Canton, Gorran Haven, St Austell, Cornwall, PL26 6JG

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 (your last petrol station). 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 send you through Mevagissey, but this is folly 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 downhill as road winds through the village towards the sea. The road gets narrower and narrower and squiggles a bit. Past the car park field on the left, continue a further 150 metres and Trelawney house is the large house on your left (in an elevated position) straight after the postbox in the wall. 

From the turn on to the B3273 in St. Austell to Gorran Haven should take about 25 minutes.


There is room for two cars to park on the drive, but approach gently, as the driveway is very steep!

Key Collection etc:

The house is always ready by 4pm The key into the keysafe beside the front door and we’ll be in touch with the latest code before your stay.

Shopping etc.

There is a good bakery in the village selling their own pasties and bread etc. and an assortment of essential groceries, including wine. The nearest supermarkets are in St Austell (10 miles from Gorran Haven) - Tesco, Asda & Co-op. Tesco will deliver (see our postcode above). 

At Heligan Gardens there is an excellent farm shop selling vegetables and meat from the adjacent farm, plus various other local produce . At the top of the hill between Gorran and Gorran Haven there is a stall selling fresh local fruit & veg with an honesty box (closes about 5pm). 


If you should need anything during your stay do call or email me, I live in the village and am happy to help. Sally Dyer  (01726) 843122 e-mail:
