Make a self-catering holiday home or cottage in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall your home away from home

High cliffs surround the beach and the sands are golden with a few dunes.

Mawgan Porth is popular with surfers and with its rock pools, is also perfectly suited for family days by the sea. Local estate agents and the tourist information bureau receive many enquiries regarding self catering Mawgan seaside cottages for holidays and short breaks.

Self catering accommodation is a cheaper option than Mawgan Porth hotels and gives you more freedom to plan your day, without worrying about returning to a guest house or hotel for meals. Self catering accommodation in a caravan is ok, but not as comfortable as a holiday cottage.

Great location and lots to see near by. The accomadation was excellent, can't wait to visit again.

Our visit was short but very sweet! We will most definitely be back! Thank you Katrina and Arthur!

Perfect if you want peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings. There are a lot of sandy beaches nearby so the dogs were very happy too. The owners were particularly pleasant and helpful.
