Recommended in Sawday’s handpicked selection of ‘Special Places to Stay’, this apartment is ideal for a large family or friendship group.

Short breaks are available on selected dates from September – May (Friday or Monday arrival, 3 night minimum). If your desired dates are not bookable online please contact the team here.

From the moment you arrive, you will find your everyday worries melt away in Lower Tregudda Apartment. Perched on a hilltop, you will have the sounds of the sea together with stunning views across Port Gaverne harbour and the Atlantic Ocean beyond, which can be enjoyed from all the living areas and two of the spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom and living room have patio doors onto a private sheltered terrace. Take a look at our webcam to see a live view from the Tregudda apartments.

Inside Lower Tregudda

Lower Tregudda has a private west facing terrace that extends across the front of the property, with plenty of garden furniture for relaxing al fresco. There is also a spacious lawned garden which includes ample parking (shared with the upper apartment).

You will step into a beautiful contemporary kitchen with streamlined units, ample work surfaces and a lovely dining table for memorable feasting. Beyond this, the living room manages to maintain an intimate atmosphere, even when catering for larger amounts of people, with ample sofas and chairs in which to relax. There’s a cosy wood-burner making autumn and winter stays a delight, and doors open directly onto the terrace.

There are five bedrooms spread out from the open living areas; the master bedroom has a kingsize bed and lovely contemporary ensuite bathroom, and gorgeous sea views. There is a further double room also with sea views. The twin room is located just off the living room and has two smaller singles (2’6”); there are a further two single rooms along the hall. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.

Out and about

The two Tregudda apartments are set on the edge of the tiny harbourside village of Port Gaverne. Owned by the National Trust, this sheltered inlet on the North coast of Cornwall has a small sandy beach at low tide, rock pools and caves, cliff walks with magnificent views and stunning sunsets. Port Gaverne is a popular destination come rain or shine. Take a look for yourself with our live Port Gaverne webcam. It’s just a short stroll from the famous 14th century fishing village of Port Isaac which you may recognise as Portwenn, the location of the famous TV series ‘Doc Martin’.

The South West Coast path is immediately behind the property, and this entire stretch of coast has been designated both Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Heritage Coast status.  You can walk east towards legendary Tintagel, or west past Port Isaac and tiny Port Quin cove to Pentire headland, Polzeath and the Camel estuary. Or simply stroll out to the dramatic headland right here for a perfect evening view. Port Gaverne is also one of the top wild swimming spots in Cornwall, and you can hire kayaks and SUPs on the beach, so pack your wetsuit, wellies and sunscreen, and we’ll provide the fishing nets, body boards and walking maps!

For eating out, the multi award-winning Port Gaverne Restaurant & Hotel is just next door, dating back to the 17th century and specialising in local produce — particularly seafood and delicious local ales. Or there’s the seasonal “Pilchards” right by the beach with plates for sharing, teas and coffees.  Or stroll into Port Isaac with its growing foodie credentials, given that it’s home to famous celeb chef Nathan Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen.

Please note that access to the property, by car and walking, is up a very steep (but very short) hill.

Cove near Dog-friendly Apartments in Port Gaverne by Forever Cornwall Holiday Cottages

Lower Tregudda is ideal for larger families, or groups holidaying together. For a larger gathering or a celebratory get together of up to 16 guests, you can also book Upper Tregudda, the apartment below — enjoy the privacy and seclusion of the whole property and gardens all to yourselves. At Tregudda apartments you can be as active and adventurous as you like, with walking, swimming and lots of things to do in and around the area, and with the ease of access not only to Port Gaverne, but also Port Isaac… But if you prefer to sit and watch the world go by, there’s no better place to kick back and enjoy the comings and goings of the people and boats on the beach below and cove beyond. This apartment is also exceptionally comfortable and well equipped, so you’ll have everything you need for an unforgettable escape to one of the most dramatic and picturesque places in Cornwall.

That view
Thank you so much for another wonderful relaxing week which was greatly appreciated by both of us and the two dogs. Mixture of weather but not a worry with that view to look at. Looking forward to our next visit in March.

Port Gaverne is right next to Port Isaac, of Doc Martin and Poldark fame. However, this little cove has an intimate charm all of its own, away from the crowds of its neighbour. Although the beach is small, it’s dog-friendly all year round — and wait for the tide to go out and you’ll be rewarded with sand between your toes, rockpools to search through and caves to discover. For those with a taste for adrenalin, this sheltered cove offers some excellent coasteering too – get hold of Cornish Rock Tors who will guide you safely along the rocky shore and through the water. They also offer wild swimming sessions, kayaking, and stand up paddle-boarding, as well as plenty other land-based activities – so if it’s an active holiday you’re after then look no further.

  • Apartment very comfortable

    Another lovely break in Lower Tregudda. Celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary with our family for 4 days, and then with friends for 3 days. By sheer fluke we took the ferry from Rock to Padstow on bank holiday Monday, only to find it was Obby Oss day celebrations, so our grandchildren were thrilled with the festivities. As usual, apartment very comfortable. All in all, a very enjoyable week!

    The Mowats — May 2022
  • So beautiful and peaceful

    Had a lovely time with the family. Visited Tintagel and Lobster Hatchery in Padstow. Great meal at the Port Gaverne Hotel on Easter Saturday and lots of walking. So beautiful and peaceful.

    The Rodwells & Groves — November 2021
  • Wonderful

    Wonderful place in a wonderful location. We've had such a fabulous time exploring the beaches and rock pools in Port Gaverne, and browsing the shops and pubs of Port Isaac. The Sea Shanty Festival was an unexpected bonus! All the facilities and amenities in the flat are excellent - what more could you want?!

  • Much-needed escape

    Thank you so much for offering this rental as a prize draw for NHS workers — we are a group of doctors and enjoyed a lovely refreshing break. The scenery is stunning and we are already plotting to come back in the summer, although we loved the cosiness of making s'mores on the log fire. A particular highlight was meeting Jon in the Boathouse Shop and then watching the excellent film Fisherman's Friends that evening — look it up! Back to work in the hospitals now — very grateful for our much-needed escape.

    NHS doctors — October 2020
  • Wonderful time

    We came down for half term and have had a wonderful time. The views are amazing, the location is great with the beach, and the pub so handy. The children loved the beach — splashing in the waves and rock pooling. It was our second visit and I'm sure we'll be back.

    The Bell family — October 2020
  • Comfortable and safe

    Thank you so much for all that you do. You make us feel comfortable and safe at this 'crazy' time! Back in December hopefully for Xmas.

  • Our third consecutive visit

    This is our third consecutive visit. We love this place and the views. We like the idea of the little local "tuc tuc" which takes us to and from the cafe, very imaginative and saved our legs! We had lovely food out, including a meal at the Chapel cafe (near Dr Martins home!). Hope to be back next year!

    The Sherborne family — April 2018
