Infinity | Luxury Self-Catering Beach House | Gorran Haven, Cornwall

Infinity

Gorran Haven, The Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, UK

The idyllic coastal backdrop chosen for Richard Curtis’ love story 'About Time' sets the scene for fun-filled family holidays at this large, luxury beach house in Gorran Haven. Occupying a prime cliff top position on the Roseland Peninsula, Infinity overlooks the azure waters and golden cove of one of Cornwall's best secret beaches.

Introduction

Infinity brings first class contemporary design to one of Cornwall’s most secluded and untouched coastlines. Proudly perched atop Gorran Haven's red rock cliffs, this luxury self-catering beach house affords wraparound views of the ocean and is backed by the exotic vegetation of Cornwall’s Roseland Peninsula (a designated AONB). From days spent snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters to evenings cosied-up inside admiring the moon dance over a stormy sea; Infinity allows families to kick back in true Cornish style.

Inside

The sumptuous coastal interiors and mesmerising views will provide irresistible whatever the hour, whatever the season. Start mornings with leisurely breakfasts in the open-plan kitchen-diner, with fridges stocked full of local Cornish produce; fresh milk, clotted cream, strawberry jam and farm butter. Later, after salt-sprayed adventures along the coast, finish the day with a roaring fire and family movie night in the cinema room. To send you off to sleep, Infinity's dreamy bedrooms stretch over two floors and have memory foam mattresses, eco-friendly fibres and Egyptian cottons.

Outside

Summers at Infinity will be a dream. Children will be entertained for hours playing badminton on the large tea lawn to the side of the house, whilst parents can retire to the second lawn which slopes down to the cliff top and spills down towards the ocean. Team the upper terrace with a chilled bottle of rosé and platter of scones, and you'll be set for the afternoon. If you can tear yourself away from the sun-trap garden, there are beautiful walks waiting to be discovered around just about every corner. Stomp past Cornish palms and coconut-scented gorse to reach miles of sandy beach and secret coves.

From the owner

“When you step inside Infinity there is one thing that hits you straight away - the view! The house is perched on a cliff top and has been in our family since 1966. We recently re-designed the house to exploit the wonderful view even further. It´s like being on the bridge of a ship.”

From the owner

Infinity has been in our family since 1966 and our family's connection with Cornwall goes back even further to the 1950s. A regular port of call was Falmouth, where my father fell deeply in love with the south coast. When he retired, it was only natural that he should come back to Cornwall and my parents spent 25 happy years here. 

The original house had been built in the 1920s by a retired naval commander and it eventually succumbed to the elements. In 2014 it was demolished, and we built the new house that you see today. We wanted to create a place that could be enjoyed by future generations, one that would stand up to all weathers, was eco-friendly, homely and, crucially, fully exploit the wonderful cliff top view.

There is so much to see and do in this part of Cornwall - whether it be kayaking and paddle boarding Gorran Haven, fishing in Mevagissey, walking along the South West Coast Path or exploring the Lost Gardens of Heligan. But, then again, you could just stay at Infinity and enjoy the stunning view!

Guest Testimonials

We have stayed in some amazing places over the years on our annual trips to Cornwall but Infinity tops the lot! We have not felt the need to venture far, the car has stayed on the drive whilst we have enjoyed the local harbour! Coastal walks to Vault beach, kayaking, the breath-taking views, the cinema room, telescopes and board games have facilitated some enjoyable family-together times. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home. We shall be leaving feeling that our souls have been fed with some magical memories.

We are so pleased we booked Infinity. It is a haven of relaxation. One of our party said "I must have looked at that view over a hundred times, but cannot stop looking at it" - says it all really!

Infinity is in a fantastic position, beautifully furnished, and well equipped. The views are stunning and the design of the house displays these at their best. We holiday in Cornwall a lot and this was a different area for us to stay in - it certainly lived up to all expectations! Truly a wonderful place to stay and we can´t wait to return.

We were absolutely delighted with Infinity. The property was just wonderful and it lived up to all expectations; our holiday was a resounding success.

Very many thanks for the loan of such a gorgeous house in such a fabulous location. The weather gods smiled, Bacchus did exceptionally well with food and wine and Neptune looked favourably upon our sea escapades! The grandchildren were brilliant, obviously inspired by their surroundings. Between us we celebrated five birthdays, lived like kings, queens, princes and princesses but alas today, we must return to normality.

Thank you so much, we enjoyed a memorable week in a superb house which provided everything we could have wished for. The views are incredible and it felt so peaceful and relaxing.
