This ultra-chic coastal home occupies a prime cliff-top position with captivating views over the stunning coastline at Mawgan Porth, between Watergate Bay and Padstow, on Cornwall's north coast. Cutty Sark sits along an exclusive sea road and adjacent to The Scarlet, a luxurious ecohotel with a restaurant and spa (open to non-residents), whilst the long stretch of soft white sand and rolling surf is less than a five minute walk. Lesser known than the beaches 4 miles along the coast at Newquay but none the less beautiful, Mawgan Porth is a sheltered cove flanked by tall granite cliffs and is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It ranks among Cornwall's top surfing destinations and there is a professional surf school opposite the beach offering tuition for all abilities and wetsuit/equipment hire is available from the local surf shop. Seasonal life guard patrol adds to the appeal for families and pet owners have the freedom to bring their four legged friends during all seasons. Guests here must-see Bedruthan Steps a little further along the coastal footpath, where the relentless Atlantic ocean has eroded the cliff face leaving huge outcrops of rock scattered along the length of the beach. There are numerous eateries to suit all tastes and budgets within close reach including foodies' favourites, The Scarlet Restaurant located within paces, Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at Watergate and Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant at Padstow. Catering well for families and within walking distance is The Fire Café, Bar & Grill, right on the beach and The Merrymoor Inn which provides an indoor children's play area. Mawgan Porth also boasts an 18 hole scenic coastal golf course and is well placed for St Ives, Padstow, Truro and the Eden Project. Backing onto the road, Cutty Sark is accessed from the rear with the entrance leading to the kitchen and sitting room with magnificent beach and sea views. In the summer, the view compares to the Mediterranean however in winter, it is a romantic and atmospheric scene with pounding surf, buffeting winds and swirling mists. Book a winter break and benefit from the lower rates and the chance to storm watch beside the warm glow of the wood burner in the sitting room. There is a TV room and two bedrooms on the ground floor which when combined with the ground floor bathroom could suit guests with limited mobility. Upstairs is a shower room and three bedrooms with jaw-dropping coastal views. Steps lead you down over five levels through the terrace garden (young children to be supervised).
