Mawgan Porth Accommodation - Self Catering (300+)

Recent Reviews

An enjoyable break!

4 of 5
The property was well-located to enable us to have access to the town. A car is essential to go further afield and having off-street parking was an advantage. The ground floor, front facing apartment was ideal for us, a retired couple, and it contained all the essentials for a most enjoyable fortnight. The pre-holiday instructions including directions were most helpful and we had no trouble finding the property. In addition the folder of information and the free WiFi were excellent. Many thanks.
