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

Out on the beach every day with lovely walks across the coast and up to St Mawgan village. This cozy flat was ideal for a super chilled out few days spent enjoying the sureoundings and then back to curl up on the sofa to watch the tide roll in and out. Perfect.
