“Absolutely perfect holiday home”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

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!!

“Extremely good!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

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!

Reviewed 20 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Great place to stay, lots of room outside for the kids to run around.
Wifi is very useful as phone signal is poor.
Great beach and small shops that are well stocked for their size.

We return next year Insha'Allah

“A haven within Gorran Haven!”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

After scouring the country for a bungalow to suit our soon-to-be 87 year old Dad's limited mobility, my sister and I found Clovelly. We are so glad we did.

The bungalow has an en suite bedroom (great for my Dad), a twin room (my sister and I occupied this), a double room (in which friends of my sister stayed) and a sofa bed in one of the conservatories (yes, there are two conservatories!). Jayne kindly made up the sofa bed for us for when my sister's husband came to stay for one night. She deliberately chose a time when she knew we'd be out to keep out of our way.

The bungalow doesn't have a sea view but it is delightfully private with an immaculate garden with barbecue, which is gated - great for young children -overlooking tranquil sloping pastures and treetops. It is only a five minute walk down a leafy small road to pretty Gorran Haven, which has the safest swimming beach in the area. There are mackerel fishing trips on offer there for less than £20 per person if you fancy some sea fishing.

Gorran Haven has a sandy beach, a couple of small cafes, a decent fish and chip shop (!) and a small grocery, generally open from 8am to 7pm, where you can buy freshly-baked bread and cakes, crab sandwiches and papers. Close by, the quaint town of Megavissey has a range of specialty shops where you can buy more exotic provisions. There is a fish stall at the harbour there that sells fish you can't usually buy in supermarkets (we barbecued fillets of gurnard one evening back in Clovelly - they were delicious!). Lobb's farm shop also has some delectable provisions - it is next to the beautiful gardens of Heligan, only a 5 minute drive away (there's a great cafe there too).

Another evening, we ate at the Llawnroc Hotel - a short walk away (although we went by car because of my Dad's mobility issues). The meal was excellent. The menu had some interesting choices, the fresh fish was great, and, although the service wasn't as elegant as at Rick Stein's restaurant where we also dined, the prices were much cheaper!

For the more active, there are cliff paths from Gorran Haven to walk/run along, which have lovely views and countryside. There also are some pretty walking tracks very close to the bungalow that cut across open fields. One close to the village partly follows a small stream.

The bungalow itself was comfortable, spacious and spotless and extraordinarily well-provisioned. Items provided included barbecue tools, Tupperware storage boxes, a range of glasses, teapots, a cafetiere, a payphone (which accepts incoming calls), wi-fi, cleaning cloths, Brillo pads and even an iPod player - Jayne's attention to detail is astonishing!

The bungalow's decor is older generation only in respect of the heavy style of one of the sofa suites, the coloured bed linen/towels and the fitted wardrobe in one of the bedrooms (I doubt any of that would bother people (particularly the older generation!) but I'm bearing in mind the sort of traveller who expects decor to be as modern as that of hip hotels!). It isn't overly-fussy or overly-chintzy and the bungalow has lots of light in the communal rooms which overlook the garden. The dual oven has one of those hobs that was ever so easy to keep clean - it's more modern than the hob I have at home!

Jane provides the most delicious cream tea and even a service where you can order ready-cooked meals and cakes if you are feeling so minded. She is a lovely lady, who even offered to bake my Dad a cake to celebrate his birthday and gave him a card.

Clovelly is the sort of place that feels like an invisible fairy is looking after you, making sure you have everything you need (her name is Jayne!).

All in all, highly recommended
