The cottage was perfect as was the location
Mr J Tillman — July 2018
Rose Cottage is a cosy ground-floor property that comfortably sleeps four, and enjoys a lovely south-facing garden that borders a small stream, as well as access to an enclosed communal garden. A stone's-throw away from the beach, Rose Cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy the charm of Port Gaverne.

Rose Cottage boasts an open-plan living/kitchen/dining room, with a large window and window seat, which makes the area light and spacious. The king bedroom has garden views and the twin bedroom includes another window seat for watching the world go by. Contemporary bathroom fittings and tiled floors enhance this cottage and the local art and fittings throughout the cottage give the place a sense of its history and locality.

This pretty single-storey cottage comes with beamed ceilings and an open aspect onto its own private rear garden, perfect for barbecues on summer evenings.

The rear garden borders a stream which flows from the hills down to the nearby beach, although safely fenced off making this ideal for young children or pets, the sound of running water accompanies anyone who is relaxing or playing in the garden. A nearby slate bridge creates access to the private parking and an easy route to the beach itself.


Rose Cottage is part of 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.

Nestling in the beautiful, secluded cove of Port Gaverne on the north Cornish coast, Rose Cottage offers a tranquil haven to enjoy your self-catering holiday in Cornwall.

Owned by the National Trust, Port Gaverne is a sheltered inlet on the North coast of Cornwall that has a small sandy beach at low tide, rock pools and caves, cliff walks with magnificent views and stunning sunsets.

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.

    We have stayed at Rose Cottage a number of times. It is very comfortable and well equipped. Parking just metres away from the front door is a great bonus. Rose's location in Port Gaverne is fabulous - the beach is two minutes' walk, as is the excellent Port Gaverne Hotel.

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.

What happens next?

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 want to talk

Booking online is usually quick and easy, but if you'd prefer to do it on the phone that's fine. Just call us on 01326 567838 during office hours: Monday to Friday 8:30am — 5:30pm,  and Saturdays 9am — 12 noon.

Any questions?

Don't hesitate to email or phone if you have any questions about your holiday home, or the area where you are staying — we're here to help!

If you have problems during your stay

Each Forever Cornwall holiday home has a helpful housekeeper who can assist, and you'll find an emergency phone number in your Paid In Full email.  If there are any breakages during your stay please let your housekeeper know straight away by phone we can arrange for replacements/repairs before the next guests arrive.
