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.

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.

Key Collection etc:

The house will be ready by 4pm and we will be in touch before your arrival to arrange key collection.


. If you should need anything during you stay do contact the housekeeper will be happy to help, her contact info is in the house.

I hope you will have a good journey down and a very enjoyable stay.

Kind regards

Beautiful view of the sea

We come to Gorran Haven every year and this is our second time staying in Doubtnot. We’ve all loved the beautiful view of the sea and the homely feel of Doubtnot. Great to be able to properly relax after this year. Appreciate the extra care you have been taking to clean too, so people can holiday safely.

We had a glorious week at Doubtnot in February, undeterred by storm Ciara! We enjoyed cliff walks and empty sunny beaches just a few steps from the house. Our favourite was the circuit walk to beautiful Vault beach. We were warm and cosy in the house which is wonderfully well equipped for humans and dogs! In February we did need all the additional heating and the heated bathroom floor was absolute heaven! As was the huge comfortable bed in the main bedroom. The revamped Lwanroc Hotel was not really our idea of a cosy characterful Cornish pub but Portmellon and Mevagissey offered us just the authentic experience we were after! Doubtnot or ‘the pink house’ remains a family favourite!

Dear Luptons Thank you for coming to stay and for sharing those lovely things to do. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay - quite hardy of you to venture forth gived the storm! See you again soon, All best, Sally

We can't wait to visit again

"We had a most enjoyable stay in June. The house is well presented and care has been taken to provide all the "little extras" that make your stay just a little bit special, games, books, binoculars, beach goods etc. The master bedroom and the lounge offer good sea views, as does the outside decked area. There is also a seating area by the front door which is a "sun trap" area perfect for morning tea or coffee. The deck being a lovely location for an evening G&T before dinner. The kitchen is fully equipped, a home from home, and there is a washing machine in the outside utility area. There is good parking and the location is quiet but only a very short distance to the beach and local facilities. Check out the fish and chips, the cafe behind the community centre, Cakebreads for your essentials, breakfast, a drink from the bar or the post office for cash! The walk up the hill to the hotel for a drink on their terrace on a fine evening also offers good views and some exercise. The break provided all we were looking for and more and we can't wait to visit again. 5 stars." -- Tony Chesters
