150 metres down the private footpath and you're amongst the sand dunes.
The views from the balcony across the bay and out to sea.
7 White Lodge is perfectly situated overlooking Mawgan Porth beach.
Mawgan Porth is a beach that gets it right with its curve of yellow sand, foamy blue water and just the right size handful of tasty eateries. Little feet splash about in the trickling river and leave tiny footprints on the sand, perhaps joined by pawprints (as the beach is dog friendly all year round).
The beachfront street is dotted with shops and cafes alike, alongside their activity centre, King Surf. Try your hand at mastering the waves or let off steam at the seasonal crazy golf and pitch and putt course, based near a historic Iron Age site.
If you fancy stretching your legs, take the steady amble up the South West coast path towards neighbouring Watergate Bay or Bedruthan Steps, where you can soak up spectacular panoramas. Padstow is a 20 minute drive away.
