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.

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.

Peaceful stay!
We have had a lovely peaceful stay in Thrift! We enjoyed the bakery in Port Issac and were more than grateful for a warm pasty to toast our chilly hands! Loved exploring on the beach and being a literal stone's throw away, the location was handy. Overall this was a lovely stay for our very first holiday together. Thanks Thrift!
