Upper Tregudda is a stunning first floor apartment that sleeps eight guests. Spectacular views across the beach and cove of Port Gaverne can be enjoyed from the large balcony, as well as from the living areas and three bedrooms. Recommended in Sawday’s handpicked selection of ‘Special Places to Stay’, this apartment is perfect if you are seeking a show-stopping coastal retreat.

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

This truly fabulous apartment sleeps eight guests in comfortable and bright surroundings, with all living areas and three out of the four bedrooms enjoying the fantastic views across Port Gaverne harbour to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. A balcony stretches along the sunny, sea-facing side of the house, where garden furniture and sun loungers can be found for relaxing and watching the sun set over the sea in summer. There is also a spacious lawned garden which includes ample parking (shared with the lower apartment). In winter, enjoy the views from the generous bay windows – and if you’re lucky, you’ll catch a dramatic storm from the comfort of a couple of leather armchairs, whilst keeping warm by the wood burning stove. Take a look at our webcam to see a live view from the Tregudda apartments. 

Inside Upper Tregudda

Upper Tregudda has a spacious and sunny lounge with ample comfy seating and plenty of space for socialising together — complete with a contemporary wood burning stove. Next you have a wonderfully equipped modern kitchen with all you need to cook up a culinary storm, and an elegant separate dining room. Doors open from the master bedroom, dining and living room directly onto the balcony giving the apartment a lovely light and carefree feel.

Branching off the carpeted corridor are the bedrooms. The master bedroom has a kingsized bed and lovely contemporary ensuite with shower, hand basin and toilet. There is also a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a single with pull-out bed to make an additional twin. All of the bedrooms except the single share the same stunning views as the lounge, and all provide a relaxing and private space away from the activity of the main living areas. 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. See 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 it’s 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.

Things we love …

Upper 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 Lower 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.

From the moment we walked into Upper Tregudda it was welcoming and we all felt right at home! The apartment was immaculately clean and has just everything we would need for a great stay. The view just speaks for itself - wow! The location was ideal as we ventured into Padstow, Watergate Bay, Perranporth, Port Isaac and Tintagel. The pub in Port Gaverne was also very welcoming and we enjoyed a drink there before exploring the beautiful walks surrounding the apartment. We would love to return to Upper Tregudda - just stunning!
