Short! Just cross the quiet access road and you are on the sand.
The peaceful position just a few barefoot steps from the golden sands of Porth beach.
7 Sandpiper is a three bedroom house on Porth beach, between Newquay and Watergate Bay on the rugged North Cornwall coast. Porth is a large, west-facing sandy beach, sheltered by headlands on either side with a cafe, restaurant and pub right next to the beach.
When children draw a seaside scene, they draw Porth. Streams, rockpools and caves beg to be explored, whilst a sweep of beach provides ample terrain for sandcastle building and sand-fairy making. Families, adventurers and explorers of all ages will lose hour after happy hour here.
A narrow wooden footbridge leads to Porth Island, a headland full of history. Watch in awe at mid tide, particularly on windy days, as the blow hole shoots rainbow sprays of water. Embrace the theatre of Porth Island any time of day or all year round, just wrap up warm and bring a camera to capture dramatic sunrises and storms alike.
Back down on the beach, melted strawberry ice cream drips down sides of candy cones and sizzling tapas is served at Porth's beachside eateries. Once you've soaked up the Porth scene, try heading towards Newquay's bays, up the coast path to Whipsiderry and Watergate, or towards the rolling cliffs of Mawgan Porth and Bedruthan Steps.
