Property Description

Mawgan Porth, 2 miles, has a wonderful sandy beach and an 18-hole golf course. Both the resorts of Newquay and picturesque Padstow are within an 8 mile radius. The Eden Project is also within easy reach and Jamie Oliver’s ’Fifteen’ restaurant, Watergate Bay, is only 3 miles away. The idyllic village of St Mawgan, 1 mile, has interesting antique and craft shops, a pub and post office with tea room and a Bonsai nursery.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Friendly welcome to a lovely cottage, far enough away from things to be peaceful, yet near enough to amenities to not feel isolated. We had three children aged, 6, 5 and 1, and they were kept happy while actually at the cottage, being able to run around outside and play on the slide! Cottage facilities were excellent - dishwasher, microwave, iron etc within the cottage itself; washing machine and drier located just outside in a laundry room. Nice-sized patio area outside with seating and a barbecue, lovely view from here over the hills with a distant view of the sea (the sun sets over this part of the sea so on a clear evening it is beautiful). Several great beaches within a few minutes drive although be aware that some have car-parking charges. The beach at Mawgan Porth (about 2 miles away) has a pub that offers free parking if you use the pub, or 20p to go to charity if you don’t, and the beach is directly across the road from there. Tesco currently (September 2011) offers reward deals for Blue Reef Aquarium at Newquay and the Eden Project at St Austell, both near enough to drive to from this property. Overall a great stay in a lovely cottage with friendly owners in a beautiful area - what more could you want? Sept 2011.
  2. A wonderfully quiet, isolated property in lovely countryside. The views are excellent as is the access to walks and plenty of fresh air. The property is very well equipped, warm and comfortable, but is not within walking distance of public amenities (shop, post office, etc). Sept 2011.
  3. The cottage was fantastic, location was exellent, 5min drive from st mawgan porth beach, which was fantastic for kids. We had cows at the bottom for the cottage garden which was lovely, would defo recommend this cottage 10/10. Aug 2011.
  4. The accommodation and location was utterly beautiful, panoramic views across St Mawgan and being able to see St Mawgan Porth was stunning. Both Nancy and David were very hospitable and the cottage was clean and well equipped. We had the most wonderful time and would have loved to have stayed longer but will defiantly be going back! June 2011.
  5. Clean, tidy and all the mod-cons of home (dishwasher with tablets), tv and dvd player etc), just what you want from a little countryside cottage - wonderful. Gorgeous homemade fruit cake on arrival. Sept 2010.
  6. Quiet location, comfortable and child friendly. Sept 2010.
  7. Lovely cottage in a fantastic peaceful setting, but close enough to beaches, Padstow and other attractions. Very helpful and friendly owners. Great for dogs! Nov 2010.
  8. The property was very well looked after as was the surrounding farm. It was obvious that the owners cared for the environment both inside and out. Our expectations were exceeded! July 2010.
  9. Good location, close to coastline, Newquay and airport. Pretty local village with tea rooms and pub serving meals. Rural farm surrounded by rolling hills, lovely vista from sitting room. Bedrooms small but adequate. Nice touches such as tea, coffee, washing up liquid etc provided and cake and milk on arrival. Run by nice, friendly family. July 2010.
  10. Clean, modern and well equipped. Greay views and a frienfly owner. June 2010.
  11. Slightly off the beaten track but not too far (what we like). Close enough for beaches. Nice views. Small farm so excellent for children. Feb 2010.
  12. Amazing holiday. The cottage was more than we expected, the owners Nancy and David were so lovely and welcoming. Loved it. June 2009.
  13. A lovely welcome with tea and home made cake. Friendly owners, but not intrusive. May 2009.
  14. Lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting and convenient for visiting many of Cornwalls attractions. Our dogs also loved running in the owners fields and wood. Aug 2008.
  15. The accommodation was excellent with a welcome tray including tea, coffee, milk, cake and biscuits awaiting us on our arrival. Plenty of room for the family to spread out with freeview and DVD player and a few games available for evening entertainment. Aug 2008.
  16. Thanks to Nancy and John (the owners) for the hospitality. Made to feel like home from home. We will be back again. Aug 2008.
  17. Extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. I can see me booking another visit in the next month and making regular holidays there. Brilliant and relaxing place to be! Sept 2007.
  18. The cleanliness of the cottage was first class, its inspired me to aim for the same level back home! The dishwasher was a luxury and being in such an idyllic, peaceful location provided a real escape from city life. Nov 2007.
  19. Cottage was excellent and the owners extremely helpful and welcoming. Excellent choice for dog owners. June 2007.
  20. Very relaxing enviroment, everyone very friendly and lots of animals for children to see! Nice and quiet after a busy day out. Aug 2006.
