    “Seagull's Perch is a beautiful holiday house in a perfect position.”

    As we had a 4-year old with us and due to the pandemic we ate in every night and found a slight lack of dishes for cooking in the oven and microwave, but we had taken a few extra things with us. Also, I know it's a small thing, but would have appreciated sharper knives, or a knife sharpener available to us. Such a shame that holiday companies are putting their prices up so much for the 2022 season that has meant we were unable to re-book for June next year, which we would have loved to have ...

    As we had a 4-year old with us and due to the pandemic we ate in every night and found a slight lack of dishes for cooking in the oven and microwave, but we had taken a few extra things with us. Also, I know it's a small thing, but would have appreciated sharper knives, or a knife sharpener available to us. Such a shame that holiday companies are putting their prices up so much for the 2022 season that has meant we were unable to re-book for June next year, which we would have loved to have done. The owners of this property, who live next door, are charming and take a personal interest in their guests and genuinely want to know that all is well and checked we enjoyed our holiday, which we did immensely. Thanks in particular for the loan of a chair for my husband (again!) as he has a bad back and found sitting in the comfy sofa and chairs a little difficult. We wish we were still there!

The property

On a private lane, looking down over the beach in Mawgan Porth, a semi-detached, custom-built, split-level house with superb beach/sea views.

A gravelled path leads to paved area (useful for storing surfboards and drying wetsuits), from which 6 steps down to decked terrace (table/chairs) with sea views.

Beach (steep footpath), 300 yards; hotel restaurant/bar, 200 yards. Large kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob/electric oven) open to living room with TV/DVD, that superb elevated view over the beach, and balustrade; loo.

Stairs (stairgate) down to two bedrooms - a double (5' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite), sea views (balustrade) and external steps down to the terrace, and another double with day bed and en suite shower-room (suite).

Excellent, contemporary accommodation. Mawgan Porth: village of mostly modern houses, pub, restaurants, deli, wine bar, hotels, surf school and beach shops clustered around a beautiful cove of soft sand.

Good for bodyboarding/surfing.

More magnificent beaches and international facilities for surfing at Newquay (airport), 3 miles.

Golf and pony-trekking nearby.

Watergate Bay (watersports school, Wax Watergate Bay restaurant and The Venus Café), 3½ miles.

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 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.

Note: Sorry, no short breaks
