Jayne Holmes purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Jayne Holmes chose Newquay & St Austell

We love Clovelly, it has a beautiful private garden, which is in full sun all day. The garden has flowering cherry trees which look beautiful in the spring when the blossom is out. The rooms are bright and nicely decorated, with lots of space to find a chair that suits you.

We have added Wi - Fi and a payphone.

We also have Freesat TV

Clovelly is far enough away from the beach to be peaceful but also near enough to walk to the beach in a few minutes.

Living in Gorran Haven means that we can look after Clovelly and if you do have any problems we are near enough to sort them out. We enjoy preparing Clovelly for each guest. We do want you to enjoy your holiday.

What makes this bungalow unique

Clovelly has its own enclosed garden, own parking. Peace and quiet. The post box and telephone box are just outside on the green, handy for posting all those postcards!

It is in walking distance of the local hotel, ideal for a meal out and handy walking distance to the local shop, teashops and beach.

Clovelly offers peace and quiet, a lovely garden to enjoy outdoor eating.

No stairs to climb, everything on one floor, with lots of rooms to choose to relax in.

We provide all bedding, towels and beach towels, allowing you more space in the car to bring the things you want to bring!

We also leave a cream tea for your arrival!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a perfect holiday home - clean, spacious, child friendly and already stocked with those things that make life easier but self catering doesn't normally provide. We had a wonderful stay and the cream tea was amazing! The garden is perfect for children and the location very peaceful, with fantastic views of the countryside. The beach is a 10 minute stroll away with a great local bakery and fish and chip shop there too. We'll be back!!

Outstanding service

Plenty to do & see in the area.

Beautiful beaches, shops 7 cliff walks in easy walking distance from the bungalow.

Wonderful home cooked meals from "Cornish country kitchen".

Beautiful bungalow, which had everything you could need for a great holiday. A lovely sized garden for my Granddaughter to play in and a tasty cream tea awaited us on our arrival, None of us wanted to leave at the end of the week, and yes, we will be booking to stay at Clovelly again!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th stay at Clovelly and as usual everything was perfect.Jayne and Richard lay on a cream tea on arrival much appreciated after a long drive.

The bungalow is beautifully maintained and immaculately clean.

The garden is large and safe for children to play in.

Clovelly is situated halfway up a hill that leads to the beach about 6 minutes walk away it's not too demanding a walk.

The beach is safe for kids and not too large with a bakers,chip shop as well as a couple of cafes.

We rate Clovelly so highly we've booked for next year already.

Indeed a truly 'fantastic'property

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday in Cornwall and the bungalow was perfect for some one with limited mobility and two young adults. It is clean, spacious, well furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Jayne, the host is very kind and we particularly enjoyed the cream tea upon arrival-My daughter spent the next two weeks trying to find a better cream tea but had to admit defeat.

It is ideally located for access to the beach, some lovely local walks and the rest of the Cornish coast. We would definitely visit here again and would recommend it to everyone.

Home from home in a wonderful location...

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd time staying in this bungalow, which is perfect place for a family holiday. Just a short walk from a lovely, safe, quiet beach, the house is clean, spacious, and well maintained. The owners go the extra mile, leaving cream teas on arrival, as well as a really well appointed property with everything you could need. The kids even got an easter egg each this year. Would definitely recommend to others.

Lovely bungaloe in Gorran Haven

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Clovelly as it was very close for us to travel to other areas in Cornwall. Gorran Haven was a childhood holiday destination for my husband some 45 years ago and it was nice to talk to locals and see how things have/have not changed since that time. The bungalow was well equipped, clean and very homely for us after a long journey from France. We enjoyed our stay very much, the weather was very kind also and we are looking forward to another stay sometime next year. The cream tea was very welcomed after our journey, after living in France for 8 years this is something we cannot get over there so it went down very well with us with a lovely cup of tea. Thankyou.

Superb location - spotlessly clean - excellent.

  • 5 of 5

The weather was extremely kind to us which put the icing on the cake for our stay at 'Clovelly'.

From the welcoming Cream Tea onwards everything was above expectation. The facilities were superb, every possible utensil in the kitchen without going 'over the top'. The beds and lounge furniture were of excellent quality and so comfortable.

Superb location for touring further afield but this year we tended to stay locally. Relaxing on Gorran beach was the order of the day. The visit to The Eden Project was fascinating and Mevagissey is a lovely traditional Cornish Fishing Village.

Overall a wonderful weeks holiday.
