Beds were very comfortable, kitchens were very well equipped, and everything worked wonderfully well.
Mr E McManus — November 2017
Courtyard Cottage is set on two floors, with an 'upside-down' layout, and sleeps four guests in spacious comfort. The open plan kitchen-dining area is well equipped, and the bedrooms are airy and full of natural light due to large windows. There is a lovely shared, enclosed garden area where picnics and sunbathing can be enjoyed from.

Slate steps lead up to the property from the small lane that runs alongside, where you step into a wonderfully bright and spacious living area. Attractive wooden furniture and a beamed ceiling compliments the open plan arrangement of kitchen, dining room and front room. Whitewashed walls accentuate the local artwork, whilst inviting armchairs create a snug atmosphere around the wood burning stove.

Smooth wooden floors can be found in the well equipped kitchen area as well as an authentic bench table for large gatherings and a polished church pew, adding local character and individuality to this cottage. The views onto the courtyard garden and country lane give the upstairs area a fresh feel.

As you go down the carpeted stairs you will find the two spacious bedrooms; one with a double bed, and the other with twin beds and access to the courtyard outside through French doors. Both come with built in wardrobes and chest-of-drawers. Garden furniture and sun loungers make the slate terrace outside the bedroom door an ideal place to catch some sun on your doorstep, and parking is conveniently available in a private car park nearby. Both bedrooms are bright and airy due to the large windows and doors allowing natural light to flood in, and views can be enjoyed out to the courtyard beyond.

Courtyard Cottage is one of a number of delightful properties nestled in the beautiful, secluded cove of Port Gaverne on the north Cornish coast. Owned by the National Trust, Port Gaverne is a sheltered inlet that has a small sandy beach at low tide, rock pools and caves, cliff walks with magnificent views and stunning sunsets.

This small group of cottages are a delightful collection of restored 18th Century Cornish buildings that were originally fishermen’s dwellings and now make eight attractive self-contained holiday cottages positioned around a sunny courtyard garden, and just a stone’s throw from the beach.

Port Gaverne is also just a five minute walk from Port Isaac; location of the popular Doc Martin series. This quaint little town is a fourteenth century fishing village with winding lanes, whitewashed cottages and a wide range of restaurants. Courtyard Cottage and its surroundings offers a tranquil haven to enjoy a self-catering holiday in Cornwall.

Forever Cornwall Port Gaverne


Port Gaverne sits right next to (and often in the shadow of) Port Isaac, of Doc Martin and Poldark fame. However this little hamlet has a charm all of it’s own, away from the crowds of the neighbouring village but just a ten minute walk to the neighbouring village’s most impressive claim – not one but two Nathan Outlaw restaurants. In Port Gaverne itself you’ll find an award-winning pub, direct access to the coastal footpath, and its own dog friendly beach – all you need for a coastal Cornish break.

Exploring  Port Gaverne


    • Perfect peace!

      This was our second stay at Courtyard Cottage; we rented two properties for a family reunion to celebrate a 'significant' birthday of one of our children. Three 'children,' their partners and six grandchildren fitted in effortlessly. Beds were very comfortable, kitchens were very well equipped, and everything worked wonderfully well - plus that stunning view from lounge windows - and that wonderful pub and restaurant next door- and Port Isaac just over the hill - perfect peace!

    Booking Guide

    How to select your dates

    Most of our properties offer a minimum stay of 7 nights, however some are available for shorter breaks. If a date is underlined on the availability calendar this indicates a potential 'start date'. Simply click on your preferred arrival day/start date and then click when you would like to depart. The duration of your stay will be displayed in blue, and once you have selected your departure date the cost of your holiday will be displayed underneath the calendar. If you like what you see simply click 'Book Now' if you would like to proceed, or 'Clear Selection' if you would like to start again — both buttons are below the calendar. Special offer discount codes can be entered during the booking process, and any last minute discounts will be applied automatically when you book. If you'd like to book other dates please phone or email.

    Dogs and other pets

    If you are booking dog-friendly accommodation you will be asked about this during the booking process. Dogs are charged at £25 each for full or part weeks. Please note that cats and pets of any kind are not permitted at any property without the express permission of the owners and Forever Cornwall

    About your party

    During the booking process we'll ask you about you, your party, and how you'd like rooms made up for your stay. You'll also be able to request free cots and high chairs, and give us any other special instructions.

    Paying online

    You can pay by credit or debit card. There are no surcharges for credit cards. All payments will be made through our secure payment partner Sage Pay.

    Paying a deposit, or the full amount

    If your stay is more than 56 days away you have the option to just pay a 20% deposit now, with the full amount payable 56 days before your stay. By making the deposit payment you are providing card details to enable us to take the final amount 56 days before the start of your stay. These are fully encrypted for your security. Please make sure you have sufficient cleared funds to cover the payment. You can pay the full amount when you make the initial reservation if you wish, and must do so if booking within 56 days of the start date.

    Returnable security deposit

    We ask for a security deposit of between £200 and £350 depending on the property, which we return to you within around 10 days of your stay, by re-crediting it to the credit or debit card that you paid with. In the unlikely event of there being damages or breakages we will notify you of any deductions first (don’t worry, we are not picky about little accidents like broken glasses!). You are liable for the full cost of any damage caused to, or within, the property, during the rental period. The deposit does not limit your liability for damages in excess of this amount.

    If you have problems with your payment

    If your payment fails don't panic! Usually the property will have been reserved for you as soon as you have got to the payment stage. The most common reason for failed payment is the address you have given not matching the card holder's address. If you've tried again and the payment hasn't gone through just phone us.

    Terms and conditions

    Please be aware of our terms and conditions. You'll be asked to accept these during the booking process.

    Once you've booked online you will receive an email from us to confirm. It will be a different email depending on whether you've paid a deposit, or paid in full.
    • Paid a deposit? The email will confirm your booking.
    • Paid in full?  It will tell you how to find and access your holiday home.

    If you have problems during your stay
