Hillside Cottage is a picturesque whitewashed cottage in the village of Gorran Churchtown, one mile from the beach at Gorran Haven and three miles South West of the popular tourist port of Mevagissey.
Originally laid out as two separate cottages dating back to the late 1800s, it has been combined and extensively extended and modernised, retaining much of the character of the original properties with low beamed ceilings, original period sash windows, ledged and braced doors downstairs and fireplace with new wood burning stove, whilst benefiting from a modern, newly fitted kitchen, en-suite bathroom, family shower room, gas central heating and broadband, wireless internet.
The local pub, The Barley Sheaf Inn, which has been extensively refurbished, is only 100 yards away and well worth a visit, offering great food and live entertainment.
The cottage is ideally situated for fans of Rosamunde Pilcher the author, who was born in Cornwall and wrote extensively about locations in Cornwall. Also the German TV series is frequently filmed in Cornish locations - see this page for a list.
Also with the new Poldark TV series for 2015, you can visit many of the filming locations and experience the dramatic coastline for yourself, using Hillside as a central location to return to each day. See this page for more information and the locations.
