A spacious yet welcoming property with stunning sea views

You’ll be spoilt with countryside and sea views at the Coastman’s Nest in the sought after coastal village of Mawgan Porth, just four miles from Newquay and seven miles from Padstow.

A light and spacious property with a welcoming home-from-home feel, Coastman’s Nest comfortably sleeps eight across four well-appointed bedrooms. Designed in an upside-down style to capitalise on the stunning sea views, on the first floor there’s a large sitting room with plush sofas, and open fire. From the windows guests will appreciate the coastal outlook alongside the luscious green fields, where you may spot a cow grazing in the Cornish sun. For when the eyes tire of the views, there’s a SmartTV to catch up on your favourite shows.

Naturally, the master bedroom is also situated on the first floor; a king-size room with en-suite shower. The stunning views can be appreciated without leaving the sumptuous king-size bed, as you look out to Mawgan Porth and surrounding rolling fields. Although our favourite spot has to be the glass-fronted balcony, which has two rattan sofas which you can sink into and soak up the views.

The sights aren’t only appreciated from the top floor, head downstairs to the open-plan kitchen and living room. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need, from the Neff double oven and five-ring gas hob to the Nespresso coffee machine and juicer. The large dining table comfortable seats eight, while the sliding patio doors and sizeable window not only flood this space with light but affords more sea views. There’s a living space too, to allow guests to relax post Cornish feeding.

On the ground floor you’ll also find a generously-sized double, a zip ‘n’ link twin room, which can alternatively be set up as a double and a children’s bunk room. The family bathroom boasts a deep bathtub and additional freestanding shower, plus there’s also a cloakroom here to store away your holiday paraphernalia.

Coastman’s Nest also boasts a large terrace, which can be accessed from the kitchen via patio doors. Compete with pergola, outdoor dining set, sun loungers and bespoke built-in BBQ means guests are well catered for al-fresco dining under the Cornish sun. The outdoor space here is equally impressive, with an expansive enclosed garden, shower, a sizeable garage for storage and convenient glass room for drying off wetsuits.

A short stroll from the soft golden sands of Mawgan Porth beach, you’re a 10-minute walk from this award-winning west-facing beach, which is brilliant for everything from sandcastles to surfing, but also rewards you with spectacular all-year-round sunsets, rock pooling, body boarding and beach walking. You cannot find a more select, peaceful choice for your holiday than here, so let yourself unwind.

Mawgan Porth is the perfect location to relax, boasting acres of soft golden sand for all age groups to enjoy. In contrast to the huge, rugged north Cornwall cliffs, this award-winning west-facing beach is brilliant for sandcastles, but equally equipped to take on some waves with the help of local surf school Kingsurf. The beach also rewards you with spectacular all-year-round sunsets,  rock pooling, body boarding and beach walking. You cannot find a more select, peaceful choice for your holiday than here, so let yourself unwind.

If you are a nature lover, there are wonderfully scenic walks along the cliff tops here, jewelled in summer with sea pinks and gorse. The cliff geology provides a dramatic backdrop to the gentle flat of the bay, dominated by rugged rocks.

For village amenities you’re well taken care of. Mawgan Porth village offers plenty of food for thought with wonderful places to eat, from the casual Beach Box and Kitchen by the Beach to Catch Seafood Bar and Grill. If a village pub is more your vibe, then try the Merrymoor Inn, just 50 metres from the beach, or the Smugglers Inn, a stone’s throw away, has a secluded beer garden to relax in.

Cornish Fresh is the closest supermarket and gourmet foods supplier, with artisan bread, speciality coffee and a full off-licence, situated opposite the beach. It is a village store with a difference. The little beachfront shop stocks a wide range of exotic deli products.

Mawgan Porth is a mere 4 miles from Newquay, and not far from Padstow so you’re in a great location to explore what Cornwall has to offer, as well as a plethora of foodie hotspots to try, from Michelin star restaurants to cool beachside hangouts.

Head north towards Padstow and discover the wild north coast with Harlyn Bay, Constantine Bay and Trevone Bay all in easy reach. While Newquay will spoil beach lovers too. The key beaches, TowanLusty GlazeTolcarne and Great Western, are all pretty sheltered and safe for swimming, too. The surfing is unmatched – Fistral Beach offers a world-class surfing experience. Nearby Watergate Bay is perfect for kitesurfing and windsurfing, or try your hand at kayaking, coasteering, surf rafting and plenty of other adrenaline sports. A trip to Pollyjoke Beach is well worth a walk. Off the beaten track, it is a beautiful little cove set away from the main activity of Newquay. In spring, the beach is overlooked by dramatic huge fields of red poppies.

An attraction for families is Newquay Zoo, set in over ten acres of sub-tropical lakeside gardens and home to many endangered species. The Blue Reef Aquarium with its shark tunnel is also a fab outing for a rainy day. Or you may fancy a special spa day, we recommend heading to Fistral Spa and Headland Spa.

Mawgan Porth is set within a beautiful area of countryside with plenty of walks, with great access to the South West Coast Path. If you want some peaceful beauty then why not opt to visit the bonsai, pagodas and ponds of The Japanese Garden in St Mawgan? Nearby Trenance Gardens form another fine option for a day away from the beach. The options really are endless…
