Explore Cornwall

Off-site, Mawgan Porth beach is a short, flat, gentle stroll away, with surf schools, shops and restaurants. Further afield you’ll find more coastline, adventure activities, shops, restaurants and pleasantly old-fashioned fishing villages.

Cornwall is also globally-celebrated for arts, culture, history, heritage, gardens, food, drink, film, TV and literature, with plenty of exceptional family attractions too. Beaches In the local area, Watergate Bay and the surf beaches of Newquay lie within five miles along the coast road southwards, and the seven bays and beaches of St Merryn and Padstow are 10 miles to the north. Further afield, the beaches of Marazion, St Ives, Sennen, Kynance Cove, Falmouth, Perranporth and Porthcurno are among the top ten in the county (according to the Cornwall Guide). But Cornish beaches aren’t just for the summer. If it turns nasty outside, do what the locals do: wrap up warm, take a brisk walk in the wind and watch the waves crash on the rocks; let the Cornish sea air blow the cobwebs away while you build up a hearty appetite
