Pond Meadow Cottage

Barn -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Gorran Haven, Cornwall, England
Once a hayloft with milking parlour below, has now been converted to a beautiful 3 bed holiday cottage with Veranda and private garden, with views across the pond and out to sea, many walks along the coast or inland.

In winter the coast line is majestic and awesome with crashing seas, whilst when the sun is shining, you couldn't have a more perfect beach holiday.

The Roseland peninsular is the ideal base for those who want to get off the beaten track, whilst still close to some of the main attractions in Cornwall like the Eden project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
