Mawgan Porth, near Newquay
On the doorstep of award-winning Blue Flag beach, a stone’s throw from the River Menalhyl’s picturesque woodlands — and only a quick trip to Newquay.
There’s no place like ours for reconnecting with the outdoors — whether that’s the local coastal walk up to Bedruthan Steps, the countryside stroll to St. Mawgan or the day trip to Padstow’s gorgeous harbour. A surfer, walker and nature-lover’s paradise.
Then, just a moment up the road is the prestigious surfer’s paradise, Fistral Beach, backed by sand dunes and imposing clifftops. Be sure to head into neighbouring Newquay for all the pleasures of a British coastal holiday — as well as its wildlife-filled zoo and aquarium.
