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.

Places to holiday in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall

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.

Richard is a very good, attentive host but only when you need him. The rest of the time he blends into the background, working on the farm. The Mill has been very tastefully restored with very good quality fixtures and fittings. Lovely comfy bed, which to me, with arthritis in my spine, is very important. Loved the log burner, lit it twice, took me back to my childhood. As someone else has said, the roads are a bit tricky in places, a lot of single track, twisty roads. Can thoroughly recommend the Mill and the owners.

Everything we needed seemed to be there and every one in our group with ages ranging from 3 to 73 agreed it was a thoroughly splendid house. The only minor reservation was the oily smell that pervaded the house (from the central heating?) - this affected one of our party in particular, but did not overall detract from our enjoyment of the property and locale.
