Large two-storey four bedroom beach house with additional four garden rooms sleeping up to 20 people.

What a great property for large groups sharing.... Blue Bay has a big, open-plan living space overlooking the ocean, perfect for getting together to eat, catch up, play and relax. Then there are eight comfortable, ensuite rooms and family suites when you need a little space to yourself.  Four bedrooms are located inside the main house with an additional four garden rooms situated around the courtyard. It's the kind of laid-back, unpretentious beach house where you'll feel instantly at home, whether you're planning a fun break with friends or a brilliant family party.

Special Offer for remaining weeks in March, April, October and November - complementary welcome meal.

Arrive to a hearty stew and dumplings, or beautiful star gazey fish pie.... At Blue Bay we want to start your stay off with some good old fashioned Cornish hospitality. No need for anyone to put on the chefs apron as we would like to offer you a first-night pre-prepared dinner for all guests from a choice of:

  • Slow cooked steak and ale stew with thyme and bacon dumplings.
  • Star Gazey pie, a selection of Cornish sea food in a creamy sauce topped with creamy potatoes.
  • Hearty Home Made Lasagna with garlic bread and green salad.
  • A big pot of Cornish mussels Mules Marinare style  with a selection of home made breads for all to dig into and share.

*Applies to new bookings only for stays in March, April, October and November 2015.

The location is exceptional  - on the cliffs above unspoilt Mawgan Porth beach, with mesmerising views across the bay and out to sea from almost every room. A huge decking area flanked by lawns and furnished with tables, chairs and barbecue takes full advantage of the idyllic position. Blue Bay is in a peaceful spot on a narrow lane; it is very quiet and safe for children.

This property gives you self-catering with a big difference. If you are planning a landmark family occasion or simply hanker after some added luxury, the owners offer a selection of dining packages, from gorgeous home-made 'ready meals' to fully-catered menus for special breakfasts, lunches and dinners, courtesy of an award-winning chef and tailor-made to suit you.  We will be happy to provide you with their details to discuss your requirements directly with them.  And for those days when you're happy to cook for yourselves, there's a fully equipped, commercial-standard kitchen.

Blue Bay is perfect for:

  • Birthday and anniversary celebrations.
  • Extended family get-togethers.
  • Friends looking for a themed getaway, such as golfers, walkers, photographers, music groups.
  • Stags and hens.

There's so much to do on Blue Bay's doorstep; a short traffic-free walk (the coast path passes within metres of the property) and you're on the beach with its restaurants, shops, surf school and crazy golf and pitch and putt courses.
