Self-catering holidays in Mawgan Porth for your home stay

Explore beach in Mawgan with Owners direct.

Mawgan Porth is a great choice of destination for a family holiday if you want to enjoy the attractions of Cornwall's Atlantic Coast without staying in one of the packed resorts. The village is located halfway between Newquay and Padstow, and most of the self-catering accommodation overlooks the bay where you will find its huge beach. The sheltered stretch of sand is perfect for days out with the family, as there is lots of room for children to run about and quiet spots for sunbathing in peace during the summer. This part of Cornwall has the best surfing in the UK and if you wish to try the exhilarating sport, Mawgan Porth has its very own surf school. Experienced board riders may prefer the more challenging waves on offer just down the coast at Newquay, while the more adventurous members of your group can head to nearby Watergate Bay to have a go at kite surfing or power kiting. The cliff-top paths in the area around the village are perfect for walking and there are also cycle routes through the stunning scenery of Goss Moor and the Camel Trail. The area around Mawgan Porth is packed with attractions ideal for day trips, such as the Blue Reef Aquarium, Newquay Zoo, Classic Air Force Museum and Lappa Valley Steam Railway.

Television chef Rick Stein's restaurant, bistro, pub and fish & chip shop are located in nearby Padstow, while Nathan Outlaw's Michelin-starred restaurant is in Rock.
