About Granny's

With its pretty cottage styling and garden, Granny’s is a great base for exploring the Dodman.

This surprisingly spacious cottage takes its name from Granny Whetter, the matriarch of a local farming family. The extensive bedroom occupies the whole of the first floor, while downstairs, a multi fuel stove makes it particularly cosy. 

Book your break during winter and the thick stone walls of Granny’s Cottage will keep you snug despite the elements, while a summer stay allows you to make the most of its beautiful garden. Enjoy a walk from the cottage along the footpath to Dodman Point, whatever the weather. 

The nearby fishing village of Gorran Haven is a must see, with its collection of small cottages and secluded cove. And explorers young and old will be pleased to know that the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just short drive from the cottage.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
