With stunning sea views and direct access on to the South West Coast Path, this recently refurbished first floor apartment is one of four converted from a spacious detached house set in an elevated position above the cove at Mawgan Porth. Mid way between Newquay and Padstow on the North Cornish Coast, this is an ideal position for exploring the dramatic coastline and just a two minute walk to the popular family beach with fine sand between two steep headlands.

Entered from the shared driveway where there are two allocated parking spaces, a short path and a series of shallow steps lead to the private entrance at the rear. A half glazed door opens directly into a light and airy fitted kitchen with New England style units and a small breakfast table. Leading off to one side is an inner hallway giving access to a shower room W.C. with vanity basin and a delightful double bedroom positioned so that you can enjoy the superb sea and coastal views.

On the opposite side of the kitchen is a pine furnished twin bedded room, and a long beamed living room at the front of the property with magnificent sea views from three double glazed picture windows. On the left, comfortable lounge seating is arranged before an ornamental Cornish stone fireplace, and on the right, there is a pleasant dining area with natural exposed stonework on the walls.

A half glazed door opens in one corner of the lounge to a private railed balcony with glorious views of the sea and coastline and a great place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets - children must be supervised. A communal grassy garden surrounded by a low stone wall is on the seaward side of the house with a footpath leading from here down to the sandy beach and the coast path.

The village of Mawgan Porth, a five minute walk along the beach or half a mile by road, has a pub, newsagent and small store, and for a wider selection of amenities, follow the picturesque coast road to either Padstow 8 miles or Newquay 6 miles. There are some spectacular cliff walks along the coastal path to Watergate Bay and Bedruthan Steps, and also a delightful walk inland through the Vale of Lanherne to St Mawgan. The Scarlet Hotel nearby has a premier day spa and restaurant available to non-residents and there is a hilltop golf course and driving range nearby.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

The Loyalty Discount cannot be claimed with any other discount.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
