We had a wonderful family stay for six adults (three couples) and highly recommend this holiday house. The kitchen /dining area is superb and the wet room a very welcome facility when coming off the beach.

Great garden with plenty of space for ball games etc. Beach in Mawgan Porth is superb with lots of waves to do surfing. Would love to go back to this place again.

Lots of space and great location just a 10 minute walk down to the beach. Hopefully be back again soon, thanks Pendowr house.
