Thrift Cottage is small but perfectly formed, making it the ideal retreat for a romantic getaway. Thrift sleeps two in cosy surroundings, and comes complete with a well stocked kitchen, and an open plan living space with views out onto the bright courtyard.

Short breaks available, October – June. Changeover days are Monday, Friday and Saturday. Three-night minimum.

Thrift Cottage is part of a delightful collection of restored 18th Century Cornish buildings, and was originally part of a large cob barn used by local fisherman for centuries. It has now been adapted into a cosy one bedroom cottage retaining its history, whilst being refined into a modern holiday retreat perfect for couples.

The accommodation is spread across one ground-floor level; the open plan kitchen complete with Delabole slate floor, and dining/living area look out onto the courtyard garden, allowing access to the sun loungers for catching some rays or perfect for an evening barbecue. The double bedroom leads into a shower room, which provides a compact and intimate holiday cottage. Parking is conveniently available in a private car park nearby.

Thrift is the smallest of this group of properties and therefore the exposed beams, comfortable furnishings and tasteful lighting create a snug and inviting atmosphere perfect for relaxing after a windy coastal walk.

The beautiful, secluded cove of Port Gaverne lies just next door to the winding lanes and whitewashed cottages of Port Isaac. A sheltered inlet on the North coast of Cornwall, this quaint little village has a small sandy beach at low tide, rock pools and caves, cliff walks with magnificent views and stunning sunsets.

Take a look at our webcam, it provides stunning live views of Port Gaverne beach.

Beautifully clean
We have had a wonderful time re-visiting all the places we went on our honeymoon in 1989. We still visit Cornwall each year and never tire of the beautiful walks and always have a surprise - this year baby seals popping into Port Gaverne for the day. Thrift has been perfect for us, so well equipped with all you need and beautifully clean on arrival. Thank you so much.
