The property

A unique combination of sea views, space and seclusion, make for a perfect getaway at this superb house above the beach. Tucked away in a quiet corner in the hamlet of Trenance on the edge of the village, the house backs onto farmland yet there are sparkling sea views from almost all of the rooms. Children will happily race along the footpath to the fabulous sandy beach at Mawgan Porth, but for the rest of us it is just a ten-minute downhill walk, perhaps a little longer on the way back up. Surrounded by cliffs there is always a sheltered spot amongst the rock pools, caves and soft white sand of this lesser known north coast beach. Voted in the Guardian's 50 best European beaches it is has a relaxed vibe and is perfect for little ones. Lifeguarded from April to September there is a good beach hire shop and surf school for budding dudes or dudettes. There is also a pub/restaurant, cafe, a beach shop and a farm shop just above the beach. Mawgan Porth is also home to two superb hotels which welcome non-residents; the family friendly Bedruthan Steps and the up market adults only Scarlet Hotel, both of which have a day spa. For families, Seaport Lodge cannot be beaten.

Light and airy, the large open plan living space provides the perfect place to kick back and relax, book in hand whilst the kids run wild in the expansive garden. Sweeping lawns, sun decks and sun loungers await outside and if the beach hasn't worn them out then there is a children's play area complete with swings, trampoline and slide (please note children should be supervised).
Whilst the house comfortably sleeps eight, four more guests can be accommodated in the mobile home adjacent to the house. Fitted with all the comforts of home, there is an open plan living space with a fully fitted kitchen and sitting/dining area with a gas fire. The two snug bedrooms share a shower room. For groups of up to eight adults Seaport Lodge can be booked without the cabin. Please see reference 1657 for details and prices.

About the location

MAWGAN PORTH

Watergate Bay 2 miles; Newquay 5 miles; Padstow 10 miles.

Nestled between Newquay and Padstow on the beautiful north Cornish coast, Mawgan Porth is a sheltered cove with golden sandy beach, great surf and plenty of caves and coastal footpath to explore. With little distraction from its golden sands, life here revolves around the beach. Laze in the summer sun, learn to ride the waves, or watch over stormy seas on a refreshing cliff top stroll. Mawgan Porth is also home to the fabulous adults-only Scarlet Hotel, which offers Spa treatments and facilities to non-residents - and nearby Watergate Bay is the setting for Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant, which sits in a fantastic location just above the beach. Mawgan Porth has a handful of shops, including a village store and deli, and a farm shop selling locally sourced meat, eggs, vegetables, bread and pasties, as well as tennis courts, a pitch and putt, and an 18-hole golf course overlooking the Atlantic.
