    • “This is rated 3 star and I think this is accurate. If you want a holiday that is really off the beaten track, wanting total peace this is the place and animal friendly. We found that although the surrounding countryside beautiful this was a little far away from any amenities. 6 miles nearest shop, pub or restaurant absolutely nothing within walking distance which was a bit of a bind. Always got to drive . It is relaxing because of its remoteness. Things a little tired. Lovely cake was left for our arrival thank you. Once you do go those 6 miles there are lots and lots to see and do”

    Mrs Clarke, Ilkeston, September 2018

    • “When I booked I checked several times to ensure that there was WiFi...and several times I revisited I was assured there was...there wasn’t any...personally my wife and I loved there not being WiFi, but keeping our 16 year old happy was tricky!! WiFi does make life easier when it comes to deciding where to go and what to do, so my only real feedback would be to install WiFi”

    Mr Tuck, Swindon, August 2018

    • “Fantastic location! Close to the beaches but also in a great country setting!.. saw the farmer twice a day but not imposing at all. The ramshackle old barn next door is amzing for bats and swallows/swifts. The cows and sheep were also lovely to watch and hear on the back garden! Totally enclosed dog proof garden and fantastic garden views. Thanks for a lovely stay”

    Mrs Moore, NOTTINGHAM, July 2018

    • “The cottage was lovely; spacious and had everything we needed. The location is perfect, 20 minutes to Newquay and Padstow and just 5 minutes from the beautiful dog-friendly beach at Mawgan Porth. We would definitely return.”

    Mrs Whitehead, Gillingham, June 2018

    • “We all enjoyed staying at Higher Lanherne Farm which provided good facilities and an interesting location with only a short drive to the beach at Mawgan Porth making our grandson and dog in particular even happier.”

    Mr Willsher, Solihull, May 2018

Regional Information

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.
