1½ miles inland from Mawgan Porth, a detached, early 19th cent. farm cottage approached over 100 yards of private concrete track. Once it was the main farmhouse; the original small yard, farm machinery and buildings are separate to one side with fields (livestock) all around. Completely private with just the occasional tractor rumbling by. At the back, a large, hedge-enclosed, mostly lawned garden (barbecue) with long views. Door to porch (5'8" lintel). Kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker). Living/dining room with woodburner, TV/DVD, view to garden, and small conservatory leading to the garden. Loo. Steep, narrow stairs (handrails, stairgates) up to three bedrooms - a double, a twin, and one with two singles; bathroom (suite, shower over bath). A good comfy chill-out spot to return to after a day on the coast.

MAWGAN PORTH Watergate Bay 2 miles; Newquay 5 miles; Padstow 10 miles. Nestled between Newquay and Padstow on the beautiful north Cornish coast, Mawgan Porth is a sheltered cove with golden sandy beach, great surf and plenty of caves and coastal footpath to explore. With little distraction from its golden sands, life here revolves around the beach. Laze in the summer sun, learn to ride the waves, or watch over stormy seas on a refreshing cliff top stroll. Mawgan Porth is also home to the fabulous adults-only Scarlet Hotel, which offers Spa treatments and facilities to non-residents - and nearby Watergate Bay is the setting for Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant, which sits in a fantastic location just above the beach. Mawgan Porth has a handful of shops, including a village store and deli, and a farm shop selling locally sourced meat, eggs, vegetables, bread and pasties, as well as tennis courts, a pitch and putt, and an 18-hole golf course overlooking the Atlantic.
