On a quiet, private lane on the edge of Mawgan Porth, a stunning, large, detached house with living areas upstairs to take advantage of terrific sea views. It is brilliantly positioned for both the beach (300 yard steep footpath down to a cove/Coast Path) and hotel bar/restaurant (200 yards). At the front, sloping lawned garden and drive; at the back, neat garden on two levels with decks catching morning/evening sun (table/chairs, barbecue). Everything about this house is generously proportioned and very 21st cent. with lots of big windows providing masses of light.
Door into wide, slate-floored hall running to the back of the house. Elegant curved stairs up to lofty open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, two electric ovens/gas hob) with woodburner and TV/DVD/video/Blu-ray/PVR; loo, all with travertine limestone flooring; folding doors to generous sun terrace (table/chairs) - fantastic sunsets. Downstairs in the hall, space for coats/boots and comfy seating; at the back, utility area with washing machine, sink and wet-room (two showers, loo) for washing sandy bodies/wetsuits or drying clothes. Four bedrooms – two double, both with sea views through sliding glazed doors to garden: one with 5’ bed, en suite shower-room (suite, two washbasins) and TV/DVD/PVR, the other with 6’ bed and en suite shower-room (suite); and two twin, one with en suite bathroom (suite with spa bath, additional door to hall), and the other with French windows to garden.
Professional catering available. No children under 7, except pre-crawling babies. The number of adults in a party must exceed the number of children. A superb house.
The Newquay coast: from the Hayle estuary near St Ives and Gwithian Towans to the Trevose peninsula stretch, almost continuously, superb sand/surf beaches. Newquay – on the railway and with airport (flights from London and a number of regional airports and flights to the Scilly Isles) – is the surfing capital, full of amusements, arcades, young people, pubs and ‘life’, short on some other things, but pretty harbour and what beaches (Fistral, Tolcarne)!
Watergate Bay (just up the coast road from Newquay), home to the Extreme Academy, is the place to go if you’re feeling adventurous - try surfing, kitesurfing, waveskiing or stand-up paddleboarding. If you’re not an adrenaline junkie, it’s also a good spot for the gourmet; Jamie Oliver has opened a restaurant, ‘Fifteen’, there. St Agnes, a little ex-tin-mining town, has preserved itself remarkably (small proper shops) and attractively. Bedruthan Steps (cliff-high rocks tower out of the beach) is one of the great coast sights (and low-tide walks). Easy drive to The Eden Project.
Mawgan Porth: village of mostly modern houses, pub, restaurants, deli, wine bar, surf school and beach shops clustered around a beautiful cove of soft sand. Good for bodyboarding/surfing. More magnificent beaches and international facilities for surfing at Newquay (airport), 3 miles. Golf and pony-trekking nearby. Watergate Bay (watersports school, Jamie Oliver’s restaurant and The Venus Café), 3½ miles. Padstow, 7.
