Little Blue Seas - a holiday home that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms
Mawgan Porth and the pretty village of St. Mawgan sit in the perfect location for a peaceful, relaxing and memorable holiday here in Cornwall. Situated mid way between Padstow and Newquay on the rugged north Cornish coast, Mawgan Porth offers you a beautiful west facing beach, stunning scenery, wondrous walks, superb surfing, an amazing variety of accommodation to suit everyone's taste and pocket, fabulous food from the pubs, restaurants, cafes and takeaways.
Mawgan Porth's Sunday Times award winning beach has acres of golden sands - great for just relaxing, playing family games, making sand castles or maybe just flying a kite. Rock pools abound and there are caves to explore. The fantastic Atlantic breakers make for magnificent surfing, be it on Malibu or body boards, so there's lots of fun for everyone, all under the watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards who operate on the beach every day between April and September. Mawgan Porth and surrounding beaches are dog friendly, but please be responsible with your pets and don't let them interfere with the enjoyment of others using the beach. There are many activities in and around the local area such as a great pitch and putt, which incidentally sits atop an Iron Age fort, crazy golf, fishing (coarse, sea and trout), go-kart racing, surf schools, ten pin bowling, a vineyard and a candle factory - the list is endless. For the walkers of this life there is the South West Coastal Path which passes right through Mawgan Porth, so from here you can walk northwards towards Padstow, passing en route the starkly beautiful and legendary Bedruthan Steps, supposedly created by the giant Bedruthan walking the coastline. You can, at low tide, go down the many steps (not those of the giant though) to this long and sandy beach to walk or explore the caves. There is a National Trust cafe with shop and toilets nearby - out of peak season they serve wonderful Sunday roasts! Walking on from here brings you to Porthcothan Bay,Treyarnon Bay with its natural swimming pool in the rocks at low tide, Constantine and Booby's Bay, Trevose Head and lighthouse, Mother Ivy's, Harlyn and Trevone Bays and finally Padstow from where, no doubt after a little refreshment, you can get a bus back to Mawgan Porth.
There is a full range of shopping facilities available in Newquay and more extensive shopping in Truro, cathedral capital city of Cornwall. Lots of fabulous restaurants within easy reach: Jamie Oliver's Fifteen in nearby Watergate Bay, Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant at Padstow and Nathan Outlaw's 2 Michelin starred restaurant at the St Enodoc Hotel in Rock. Plus the wonderful Scarlet Hotel and Bedruthan Hotel which are both just a short stroll away.
Mawgan Porth lies in the Parish of St Mawgan-in-Pyder and the Parish Church dates from the 14th century. The church is the jewel of the beautiful Cornish village of St Mawgan, with its cricket ground, ancient inn, ford and convent. Its well worth exploring! The pub in St Mawgan, The Falcon Inn, is a traditional country pub serving homemade food and has a wonderful roaring log fire in the winter months.
