Walk to the beach

A few hundred metres down to Mawgan Porth beach.

Best thing about

Its enviable position just a short walk from Mawgan Porth and large wrap around balcony with sea and countryside views.

The Details


Where is it?

Tamarisk is a stylish beachside pad, tucked away on a private road above Mawgan Porth in north Cornwall. The house is just a 10 minute walk to golden sands and Atlantic swells.

Mawgan Porth is a beach that gets it just right- a stretch of white sand, a swirling ocean and a handful of tasty eateries. Little feet can 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, cafes and an 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 little further afield, 20 minutes away by car.

Guest Reviews

We had the most wonderful holiday at Tamarisk. Everything was perfect for us all, from the youngest at 10 months old to the oldest in their 70's. Tamarisk was presented beautifully and as we explored the house, each room and view took our breath away.
The atmosphere within the house was so welcoming, we felt relaxed and in holiday mode immediately as we stepped through the door. The facilities were amazing, there was nothing that we wanted for.
Mawgan Porth is stunning as well as the surrounding areas, with so much to offer and easily accessible. We will most definitely return.
Easy to locate and good access. There were great facilities in the property and very clean.
The photos of this property don't do it justice. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Fantastic facilities and bathrooms and I've never had a kitchen so well equipped in a holiday property before. Stair gates, high chair, bathroom stool and plastic plates, cups etc provided for toddlers. Lovely outside area, unfortunately didn't get much use as the weather was so bad.
