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.

Six night stays for safety

Please note, all seven night stays in July, August and September at Thrift Cottage have been reduced to six nights until further notice. This has been necessary to carry out the additional coronavirus cleaning because of the particular housekeeping arrangements here. We are sorry for any inconvenience and we are sure you will still have a fantastic holiday in the area. To reflect the shorter stay, the rate will automatically be reduced by 10% at the checkout. We will inform you when we can revert to seven night stays. Please click here for more information about our arrangements under coronavirus, including booking terms.

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!
