Beautiful detached house, 4/5 bedrooms, open fire, walk to beach from garden

Overview

Property

Updated: 25-Nov-2016
Superb location in small private cul de sac, with beautiful large garden, shops/pub/restaurants in walking distance

A light and spacious detached seaside home of great character, with wonderful sea views from nearly every room! Surrounded by a large secluded garden with a sunny terrace overlooking the garden and beach, this recently extended and updated home is the perfect Cornish gem. There is plenty of off-street parking on the private driveway (2 cars) and in the new parking bay at the top of the drive (a further 2 cars).

The house is very quietly situated in a cul de sac of just 8 privately owned properties, off a private road.

Major improvements recently completed: brand new high ceiling entrance hall, beautiful new staircase in light and airy corridor, amazing sea views from all bedrooms and new ensuite shower room. Plus heated outdoor shower!

All the roads around Blue Seas have now been resurfaced - no more potholes.

What the press says:

"There are better-known and busier beaches in Cornwall, but few can match the raw beauty of Mawgan Porth. Shielded on both sides by cliffs, it has acres of soft white sand, rock pools, caves and magical sunsets." - The Sunday Times

Mawgan Porth ranked 6th Best Beach Holiday destination in Europe - Sunday Times Travel Section

About the Owner

Blue Seas was purchased by 2 families in July 2014 who have been coming on holiday to Mawgan Porth for many years. Between us we have 5 children and 2 dogs and love all the activities that are available nearby.

(The photo is me enjoying the Flowrider surf simulator at nearby Retallack!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great place to relax and chill. The views were amazing and even at the end of October it was warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the views. The place was immaculate, spacious and in a great location. Definitely would like to return next year! Carly (28/10-1/11/16)

A not so little 'Gem'

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of six with dogs, the accommodation is set overlooking the bay surrounded by beautiful gardens where many different types of flora can be admired. The garden is not enclosed so If you have small children or dogs you would need to be mindful.

The house is furnished to an excellent standard and provides facilities that would meet the needs of a large family or group.

Two of our party had restricted mobility so the ground floor bedrooms were a bonus.

The property layout can be flexible as areas can be opened up or closed off to suit a range of activities.

We would all defiantly stay here again.

Better than we thought

  • 5 of 5

Blue Seas surpassed our expectations and the photos just don't do it justice! A beautiful beach on the doorstep, fantastic views and superb accomadation space - well equiped and designed - having two sitting rooms down stairs was a blessing!!! Can't recommend highly enough.

Fabulous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay. House has loads of space, inside and out. The house is spotlessly clean and the owners have provided everything possible to make your stay comfortable - even down to dog beds for holidaying pooches. There were fresh flowers, wine, scented candles, tea and coffee, games, DVDs, books...the list of home comforts goes on. Short stroll to the beach, 10 minutes to Padstow. A fabulous place for a relaxing holiday.

Location

From the Owner

We love the peaceful cul de sac location and the delightful walk to the beach from the gate at the end of the garden. We also love to use the restaurants and spa facilities at the 2 nearby hotels and our caretaker is a wonderful chef who can prepare meals for you as required. This summer he did the most amazing seafood BBQ for us - with freshly caught local lobster. Both families who own the property live 200 miles away so being able fly from Gatwick to Newquay is a great advantage. If you book early it only costs £50/head. One of the best things about staying at Blue Seas (apart from the view) is the peace and quiet, interrupted only by the sound of the roaring sea, the trickling stream going through the garden and the sound of birds singing!
