    “Excellent accommodation in a beautiful village”
    We were both really impressed with The Old Post Office. First off, there was all the ingredients for a cream tea left for us on arrival - nice touch after a long journey. The house has been finished to a really high standard and we found loads of nice little touches here and there that made our overall stay pleasurable.

    We were both really impressed with The Old Post Office. First off, there was all the ingredients for a cream tea left for us on arrival - nice touch after a long journey. The house has been finished to a really high standard and we found loads of nice little touches here and there that made our overall stay pleasurable. Some things that stood out: The three double bedrooms all had lovely crisp cotton sheets and excellent pillows, I’ve never slept so well in rented accommodation!! One of the bedrooms is accessed by its own staircase, which is via a snug. This is ideal if you are sharing with friends or older family members (like we were) who may want some quiet time away from the rest of the house. The kitchen is really well appointed, everything you need is there, including a wine cooler. The bathroom has a double shower as well as a bath, and there is also a separate toilet. The accommodation is literally 100 yards from The Falcon Inn, a lovely 16th century pub that does great food. I would highly recommend The Old Post Office for families or groups of friends who don’t mind sharing one bathroom.

The property

Dating back to the 1860's, this former Post Office and village store has been transformed into a wonderful cottage and now offers beautifully presented, characterful accommodation with exposed beamed ceilings and wooden latched doors.

This two-storey property now sleeps up to six guests in three double bedrooms and offers a high level of quality furnishings and comfortable, tasteful surroundings.

The sitting room is a great place to relax and guests can socialise around the dining table beside the warming wood-burning stove.

There is also a little snug for quiet moments or to settle with the Sunday papers.

The modern kitchen is well equipped with quality items for the most keenest cook!

The hi-spec bathroom is on the ground floor with Japanese style bath and a double shower.

Outside is an attractive sunny courtyard garden with gas barbecue, fire pit and plenty of comfortable seating for those balmy summer evenings.

Nearby St Mawgan is home to the popular Falcon Inn with restaurant and beer garden.

There is also a village shop and tea-room.

There are three amazing beaches also within a short drive namely Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and Bedruthan Steps.

The famous Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are also well worth a visit.

With everything this area has to offer this really does make The Old Post Office the perfect holiday home for friends, families and couples.

About the location

ST MAWGAN

Newquay 6 miles ; Padstow 9 miles ; St Columb Major 3.5 miles

The picturesque little village of St Mawgan lies just north of Newquay, nestled in the Lanherne Valley. The village is home to a thirteenth century church, which is dedicated to St Maganus and St Nicholas. Notably in the graveyard, there is a rowing boat stern - a memorial to sailors who froze to death in local waters in 1846. The River Menalhyl runs through St Mawgan, and the village also has two welcoming inns as well as a friendly village stores with Post Office and tea rooms. The beach at Mawgan Porth is just two miles outside of St Mawgan, and there is also a beautiful Japanese garden just outside the village where you can buy indoor Bonsai trees, succulents, Buddha statues and wind chimes. With Newquay Cornwall airport based just outside St Mawgan, the village enjoys a most convenient location.
