Local Area

Mawgan Porth is a fantastic destination for that timeless seaside holiday.  With a fish and chip shop, pub, restaurants, pitch and putt, village shop and, of course, the main attraction; the stunning, sandy beach – Mawgan Porth ticks all the boxes.  Whilst this beach-side village provides all the essentials for a traditional bucket-and-spade holiday, the modern extras are the icing on the cake.  The surfing at Mawgan Porth is superb with Kingsurf Surf School based on the beach.  Newquay is just down the road proving loads of activities for the family and also nightlife.  The food scene is booming in this part of Cornwall; with Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth based just a few miles along the coast in Padstow and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Cornwall located at the neighbouring Watergate bay, this is the spot for a bit of foodie indulgence.  The thrill-seekers are also perfectly placed for achieving their adrenaline kicks with Watergate Bay's Extreme Academy a couple of minutes' drive offering amongst other activities; surfing, kite buggying, landboarding and kitesurfing.  There is a golf course just outside the village and Newquay's small airport is only a couple of miles away, and with flights from London, Exeter, Birmingham, Leeds and more destinations it couldn't be easier to enjoy a holiday in this perfect spot.

We have had a wonderful holiday at Cove House, a beautiful house in a fabulous location. We love the house and it has every home comfort and item one could possibly need. We've been so lucky with the weather too and had many walks to Bedruthan Step and to watergate Bay. All in all, a fantastic holiday in a lovely home, on the dramatic Coast of Cornwall. Thank you. Chris & Elaine - 21st October 2017
It was excellent in every way.Prof John Barrell - 18th September 2017
We really enjoyed the lovely big kitchen/diner. The house was in a perfect location to make the most of the beach, the surf, cliff walks and the village facilities.Mrs L Taylor - 11th September 2017
We had a fantastic week and the property was perfect for us.Ms Carolyn Faulkner - 6th September 2017
Three generations of our family had a lovely week staying at this beautiful and well equipped holiday home. We loved the fact it was just a short walk to the beaches or to the shops, and enjoyed the fish 'n chips and pizza. The beach is fantastic; the sand was great to dig in and the sea perfect for surfing. A beautiful part of the Cornish Coast, and we hope to return for another family holiday soon.Williams & Tuck families - 19th August 2017
Beautiful house with very comfortable lounge seating and ideal long table in the dining-kitchen. The wet room was also fantastically useful. Beautiful property, ideally located.Mrs E Baines - 7th August 2017
We have had a wonderful stay in Cove House, everything we needed and a perfect location for the beach. With only one day of rain, we surfed almost everyday, the team at King Surf are fabulous and we also tried coasteering one evening! A very rainy session at a Total Wipeout course at Retallack was thoroughly enjoyed by the children and Football Golf only half an hour away at St Austell. Finally, lots of walks especially to Bedruthan Steps, you'll earn a Cream Tea at the top! Thank you.The Swallow family - 15th July 2017
We had a lovely stay at cove house. It was our 2nd time. House is very large there were 5 adults and 2 children. Only minutes from the beach although a bit of a trek there is a refundable car park right next to the beach. Local amenities are excellent and a fab location will definitely be back x Mr D Vinall - 29th June 2017
