a great week

  • 5 of 5

We all had a fantastic time. The location was perfect, the views were lovely and there was a safe beach only a short walk away.

The cottages were all we could ask for, plenty of space and everything was clean. The cottages were well stocked and we wanted for nothing.

It was a good place rand safe place for the children to explore. There good restaurants near by.

We would definitely book these holiday homes again.

Activity and Interests

Mawgan Porth is a wide sandy bay on the north coast of Cornwall about half way between Newquay and Padstow. It forms the seaward end of the lovely Vale of Lanherne running into St. Mawgan and St. Columb. The beach is flanked by high cliffs, rocks and caves with a stream winding down one side and a small waterfall on the other. The surfing is good, with an excellent surf school, and beach guards are on duty throughout the summer. The cliffs for several miles around are protected by the National Trust including the magnificent scenery at Bedruthan Steps just along the road among a number of other fine beaches. There are many splendid walks, a favourite being the footpath to picturesque St. Mawgan, one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall, and dating from the Middle Ages.


Mawgan Porth now boasts several excellent restaurants, a well-stocked grocery shop a fish and chip shop, a café and pubs There are also two farm shops - one organic. The surf Mecca of Newquay is 5 miles to the south west and offers all the facilities of a seaside town with the usual supermarkets, banks, pharmacies etc. Between us and Newquay is Watergate Bay with it's kite surfing and Jamie Oliver's 15.
