Nestled in the heart of nature, this charming one-bedroom property offers a cozy and innovative retreat for those seeking a harmonious blend of modern comfort and rustic charm. Located just one mile inland from the picturesque Mawgan Porth, Long Barn is a tranquil sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; a destination that invites you to immerse yourself in the serene beauty of the rolling hills and lush landscapes of the Cornish countryside.

The bedroom features a spacious and comfortable king-size bed, accommodating up to two guests plus an infant. The room is fashionably decorated with dashes of colour to create a cool and contemporary atmosphere. Hooks on the wall provide convenient storage for clothes, and a hair dryer is available. For those traveling with a baby, a travel cot is available upon request.

The modern shower room includes a walk-in electric shower, basin, and toilet, with a heated towel rail for added comfort.

Long Barn may be on the smaller side, but its fully equipped kitchen boasts a brand new slim Bosch dishwasher, Lamona electric oven and gas hob, Lamona extractor fan, and an under-counter fridge. Additional appliances include a microwave, kettle, and toaster. A selection of cooking utensils, pans and oven-proof dishes ensures you have everything needed to cook up a storm! The cozy dining area with a table and chairs adds to the rustic feel.

The open-plan living area, connected to the kitchen, features two comfortable 2-seater sofas, a wood burner and an upholstered chair, creating a warm and inviting space. Entertainment options include a selection of books and board games, providing a perfect escape from modern technology.

Step outside into the private courtyard, furnished with an outdoor table and chairs perfect for alfresco dining.

Long Barn is a mile inland from Mawgan Porth (5-10 minute drive) which 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…
