Holidays in Gorran Haven

The ancient fishing village of Gorran Haven, once busy and thriving, was more important to the Cornish fisherman than Mevagissey. Nowadays however, the village and its residents enjoy a much slower pace of life. Visitors to the village can expect a relaxed and restful holiday, enjoying time on the beautiful sandy cove, kayaking along the shores and enjoying handmade food at The Little Mermaid Beach Café. 

Things to do

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing break or a family-friendly holiday, the small village of Gorran Haven has more to offer than it may at first appear. Whether you’re looking to sunbathe on the sheltered sands of the cove, ramble along the coast path or Kayak across the crystal clear waters, you’re sure to happily fill your time. 

Kayaks and stand up paddle boards can be hired at Gorran Haven, so there’s no need to travel far to collect your equipment. Paddle west for an hour or so and you’ll find Vault beach, a long stretch of shingle sand. Alternatively, a relaxed 45 minute paddle east will lead you to the picturesque Portmellon, where you can stop for a bite to eat at The Rising Sun pub. 

There are walks aplenty from the village of Gorran Haven. For a short walk, you can take the coastal path from the village to Vault beach and back, in around half an hour. For those looking for a longer walk, continue along the coastal path from Vault beach past Dodman Point, until you reach Hemmick Point. This route then returns inland via Penare Farm, Treveague and down into the valley to Gorran Haven. For the more adventurous, instead of returning to Gorran Haven at Hemmick Point, the coastal path can be followed all the way to St Mawes! Alternatively, the coastal path can be taken east to Mevagissey, or further onwards to Charlestown. 

Of course, if you choose to stay in Gorran Haven, then you simply must explore the quaint village, enjoy locally sourced food at the Mermaid Beach Café and spend time enjoying the picturesque cove.
