The property

This smart coastal home offers views over the stunning coastline at Mawgan Porth, between Watergate Bay and Padstow.

Just a 10 minute walk down to the glorious sandy beach, rolling surf and Mawgan Porth's amenities, the house is situated next door to the renowned Bedruthen Hotel, which makes it a fabulous choice for a seaside holiday all year round.

Lesser known than the beaches 5 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.

The South West Coastal Path can be accessed from the beach.

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 and Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant at Padstow.

Catering well for families and within walking distance is The Fire Cafe, Bar & Grill, right on the beach, the renowned Bedruthan Steps Hotel and The Merrymoor Inn.

Mawgan Porth also boasts an 18 hole scenic coastal golf course and is well placed for St Ives, Padstow, Truro and the Eden Project.

Visit Pepperpots in the summer and the atmosphere is positively Mediterranean.

In winter, it is a romantic and atmospheric scene with pounding surf, buffeting winds and a chance to storm watch from the warm and cosy sitting room.

A TV room with DVD player is ideal for the children to get away from the adults whilst they recount the days adventures over a glass of wine.

Two bedrooms on the ground floor and a ground floor shower room mean that Pepperpots could suit guests with limited mobility.

Upstairs a double room with coastal views and a large twin room share a smart bathroom.

At the rear is a practical outdoor area for drying and storage, whilst to the front, you can enjoy dining alfresco and watch the stunning sunset.

About the location


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 there is a wealth of fine dining restaurants such as Paul Ainsworth's No 6 and Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant. 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.
