Mawgan Porth and the pretty village of St. Mawgan sit in the perfect location for a peaceful, relaxing and memorable holiday here in Cornwall. Situated mid way between Padstow and Newquay on the rugged north Cornish coast, Mawgan Porth offers you a beautiful west facing beach, stunning scenery, wondrous walks, superb surfing, an amazing variety of accommodation to suit everyone's taste and pocket, fabulous food from the pubs, restaurants, cafes and takeaways.
Mawgan Porth's Sunday Times award winning beach has acres of golden sands - great for just relaxing, playing family games, making sand castles or maybe just flying a kite. Rock pools abound and there are caves to explore. The fantastic Atlantic breakers make for magnificent surfing, be it on Malibu or body boards, so there's lots of fun for everyone, all under the watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards who operate on the beach every day between April and September. Mawgan Porth and surrounding beaches are dog friendly, but please be responsible with your pets and don't let them interfere with the enjoyment of others using the beach. There are many activities in and around the local area such as a great pitch and putt, which incidentally sits atop an Iron Age fort, crazy golf, fishing (coarse, sea and trout), go-kart racing, surf schools, ten pin bowling, a vineyard and a candle factory - the list is endless. For the walkers of this life there is the South West Coastal Path which passes right through Mawgan Porth, so from here you can walk northwards towards Padstow, passing en route the starkly beautiful and legendary Bedruthan Steps, supposedly created by the giant Bedruthan walking the coastline. You can, at low tide, go down the many steps (not those of the giant though) to this long and sandy beach to walk or explore the caves. There is a National Trust cafe with shop and toilets nearby - out of peak season they serve wonderful Sunday roasts! Walking on from here brings you to Porthcothan Bay,Treyarnon Bay with its natural swimming pool in the rocks at low tide, Constantine and Booby's Bay, Trevose Head and lighthouse, Mother Ivy's, Harlyn and Trevone Bays and finally Padstow from where, no doubt after a little refreshment, you can get a bus back to Mawgan Porth.
There is a full range of shopping facilities available in Newquay and more extensive shopping in Truro, cathedral capital city of Cornwall. Lots of fabulous restaurants within easy reach: Jamie Oliver's Fifteen in nearby Watergate Bay, Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant at Padstow and Nathan Outlaw's 2 Michelin starred restaurant at the St Enodoc Hotel in Rock. Plus the wonderful Scarlet Hotel and Bedruthan Hotel which are both just a short stroll away.
Mawgan Porth lies in the Parish of St Mawgan-in-Pyder and the Parish Church dates from the 14th century. The church is the jewel of the beautiful Cornish village of St Mawgan, with its cricket ground, ancient inn, ford and convent. Its well worth exploring! The pub in St Mawgan, The Falcon Inn, is a traditional country pub serving homemade food and has a wonderful roaring log fire in the winter months.

This is our second visit to this fabulous house. It must be in one of the best locations in Morgan Porth. We have had the best time with all our family ( 6 ) adults and 2 dog's. Two weeks unbroken sunshine it was just heaven.
Guest from Poole stayed for 3 nights.
A great place to relax and chill. The views were amazing and even at the end of October it was warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the views. The place was immaculate, spacious and in a great location. Definitely would like to return next year!
Guest from Hants stayed for 7 nights.
I thought Blue Seas looked lovely in the pictures, but in real life it is even better. Even on a rainy day you can watch the sea from the window. It is very well equipped indeed to a high standard. There was a problem with the outside light so we phoned James (caretaker) who came straight away to sort it out. Very impressed. The coastal path is accessed through the garden gate. Easy going down but very steep going back up! My husband is 65 and found it no problem just slower going up. The beautiful garden is a joy and we all played games in it and had a right laugh. It was nice to park the car up for the week and have eating places & pub within walking distance either by land or along the beach. Our dogs loved it there and the outside heated shower enabled us to keep them clean before going in the house. Parking is good. We had three cars and there was plenty of room. Blue Seas is an stunningly beautiful place and location and equipped to please all ages. It will remain in my heart and dreams.

A clean comfortable nicely furnished house in a perfect location . Plenty of parking but a bit of a problem turning vehicle to get out. Garden really lovely with seating and table would be better and more relaxing if garden was enclosed. House has everything you could want and we would recommend it highly
Guest from Sargans stayed for 14 nights.
Great location, very quiet, except the wonderful noise of breaking waves and seagulls, wonderful and spacious house, very comfortable and well equipped. Great garden with plenty of space for ball games etc. Beach in Mawgan Porth is superb with lots of waves to do surfing. Would love to go back to this place again.
Guest from Wallasey stayed for 7 nights.
This is the second time we have stayed at Blue Seas so knew what to expect. With the alterations it is a lovely house to stay in. It is a home from home in a beautiful location which we absolutely love. It is peaceful and very relaxing. The house provides everything you need, even our two dogs had a fabulous holiday.
Guest from Stratford-upon-avon stayed for 7 nights.
We had a very enjoyable stay, very much appreciated the generous extras, 6 feet Christmas tree, hamper, wine, logs and fire laid ready to light. Views amazing. Matt and Lisa very helpful. Only negative was the private approach road which had more potholes than Tarmac! Really do need to get together with the other residents to resurface it from the post box to the end. Better when turning left at the post box.

Blue Seas is a charming cottage style house with fantastic views over the stunning beach at Mawgan Porth. The Beach is easily accessed via steps from the costal path which is 5 minutes walk from the house. The Pub is within walking distance but this is not a walk you would really want to do in the dark, it is however,very worth a visit. The house is very comfortable and easily divided up if you are staying with freinds or as a large diverse family. We did find a few issues but none major. The bathroom is a bit of a let down as it is small and the shower over bath sprays straight over the side. This could be easily fixed with a shower curtain rather than the glass screen which gets in the way getting in and out anyway. We like to have an open fire when relaxing in the evening, as we do at home, and found a couple of issues with this. 1, there is no TV in this room and so could not enjoy the fire and watch a film which was a shame. 2, the fire grate front kept falling over and spilling ash everywhere. In the end we had one fire all week, a bit of a shame really but not a holiday spoiler. The last thing is the master bedroom on the ground floor. There is a huge bed in there which looked great, however, it is 2 singles pushed together which kept seperating in the night and leaving a 2-3inch gap between us. Not massive but enough to stop you sleeping. A nice kingsize would be better and there maybe room for a sofa bed in there too. All in all these are minor points that would not stop us rebooking as it is a nice place and a fantastic location. If we were prepared for these points they might not be an issue at all, hence I have mentioned them. If the owners were to stay there themselves for a bit they might notice them and put them right. What is a bit of an issue though is the road. Don't go if you have a low slung sports car as it is very rough. P.S. The gardeners turned up twice unexpectedly and you only know they are there when you see them in the garden. Can be a bit of an intrusion on holiday.
Were glad you enjoyed your recent stay at Blue Seas so much, and appreciate your feedback on areas to be looked at. The bed in the master bedroom is a zip and link. When properly zipped and linked there is no gap at all and it feels no different to a kingsize bed. On this occasion we can only assume that the caretakers had forgotten to link it properly after it had been rented out as two single beds during a previous week - we are very sorry about this. The downstairs bathroom is having a make-over over the winter and Im sure you will find it much improved in 2016. We have three sitting rooms and two TVs. So far most of our guest really enjoy having one quiet sitting room without a TV. However, if the general feedback is in favour of a third TV, we would be happy to provide this. The two star rating for cleaning was a surprise since we pride ourselves on the house always being spotlessly clean throughout. We shall investigate this further. The fire in the sitting room draws well and mosts guests use it over the winter. We can certainly look at the grate to see what the problem was there. We try to keep the garden looking at its best all year round. Since Blue Seas is booked out most weeks, it is unavoidable that gardeners have to come while we have guests at the property. I hope they were discreet and did not make you feel uncomfortable in any way. You are absolutely right about the road which has been an on-going issue. Happily the residents have clubbed together to fund the resurfacing of the entire network of roads off Tredragon Road. This will make a big difference to our guests during 2016.
Guest from London stayed for 7 nights.
We had a great time at Blue Seas. The location is amazing and the views are stunning. The house is clean, comfortable and well equipped, and the house keeper was very helpful and responsive when we had an issue with the TV aerial. The only two more constructive comments I'd make is that the description should make clear that access to the upstairs is very, very steep, and that it would be worth trying to level out the beginning of the drive way as our cars scraped over a tarmac bump each time and we ended up parking on the lane as a result. But they were two very minor points about what is a wonderful cottage in an ideal location.
So glad to hear you loved Blue Seas and its wonderful location and that our lovely caretakers looked after you so well. I am happy to say that we are fitting a beautiful bespoke oak staircase to replace the old one during the winter of 2016 which guests will enjoy from May 2016 onwards. Along with a wonderful new entrance hall and large sea facing windows in all the upstairs bedrooms, plus a new ensuite to the new family suite. Some of the road has already been resurfaced and the programme is on-going - all of Tredragon Road will be smooth and pot hole free in the not too distant future. Owners of Blue Seas
Guest from Hernebay stayed for 7 nights.
A most enjoyable stay and an ideal location the house was well equipped with very good quality household items, well situated on the coast and several scenic walks along the coast and up to St Mawgan. The pub / Restaurants s are also within easy walking distance.
Guest from Halifax stayed for 14 nights.
The worst bit of the stay here, was the day we had to leave. Fantastic accommodation with the sea views, you could be sat on the patio... But think you're on the beach. The house is fully equipt with everything you need and more. The kitchen is well stocked with more utensils than you could think. The only two downfalls were, we stayed for two weeks expecting all linen to be change on the Saturday, unfortunately this didn't happen and the road leading up to the house has a lot to be desired. But would I book again? It's a yes!
We are so glad to hear you had such a fantastic time at Blue Seas and loved the gorgeous views. The road is privately owned by the Duchy Of Cornwall but residents are working on a plan to improve its condition. We always make sure all 2 week bookings have the option of a mid stay linen change and freshen up.
