Things To Do
Mawgan Porth beach is just a five-minute walk away. It is a fantastic surfing beach at low to mid tide which is lifeguarded in the summer months and dog friendly all year. At low tide there is an expanse of beach with cliffs, dunes, caves and rockpools to explore. There is surfboard hire and a fantastic local shop selling groceries and fresh pasties, coffee and ice creams.
Watergate Bay (http://www.watergatebay.co.uk/) is just two miles away. It is home to the Extreme Academy, Beach Hut, Surf Shop, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall restaurant and the Watergate Bay Hotel. This is a great beach for surfing, kitesurfing and strolls along the long beach.
Lusty Glaze beach (http://www.lustyglaze.co.uk/) on the outskirts of Newquay is another great surfing beach and a real sun trap in the summer. The horseshoe shaped cove is the base for The Adventure Centre (http://www.adventure-centre.org/), which offers activities such as Coasteering, surfing, rock climbing, abseiling and the famous zip wire from cliff to cliff above the beach. There is also the fantastic Lusty Glaze Restaurant (http://www.lustyrestaurant.com/) which specialises in fresh, Cornish ingredients cooked with Mediterranean influences.
South West Coast Path
The cottages are located very close to the South West Coast Path (http://www.southwestcoastpath.com/), offering walks along what we think is the most spectacular stretch of Cornish coast. Nearby is the National Trust property Bedruthen Steps (http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-vh/w-visits/w-findaplace/w-carnewasandbedruthansteps/) of with its spectacular sea stacks and secluded coves.
Padstow is a big draw for tourists thanks to its pretty harbour, estuary views, art galleries and shops. It is also popular for the celebrity chef Rick Stein (http://www.rickstein.com/) and his restaurant, café, deli and fish and chip shop, all serving fine foods.
Described as a ‘miracle’ by the New York Times, the Eden Project (http://www.edenproject.com/) is a must-see attraction in Cornwall. The biomes of the wrld’s largest ‘greenhouse’ contain species of plants from all around the world. It has to be seen to be believed.
This one is a little further afiled but well worth the trek down to Porthcurno to watch a play or performance in spectacular cliff-top Minack Theatre (http://www.minack.com/).
Cornwall is famous for its surfing and Mawgan Porth can have some great waves. Porth Farm Cottages is also handily located for surfing at Watergate Bay, Fistral, Constantine and Harlyn.
