  • "A great holiday cottage; very well equipped and in an amazing location."

    However, a few gripes that meant it didn’t exceed expectations. Firstly, there was a strong smell of animal urine in the ground floor bedroom, I assume from a previous guest. Secondly, the shower unit in the mast bedroom needs relaxing. You can’t actually ‘shower’ under it as the clip was broken and then the door wouldn’t shut properly, leading the whole room to get wet. Apart from them, pretty good!

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear you experienced a couple of issues whilst at the property, had you discussed these with us at the time of your holiday we would have been more than happy to try and resolve this for you. We have spoken with the owner who will look into your comments. Despite the points you raise we are glad you otherwise enjoyed your time in Cornwall. Property Owner

  • "The Coastman's Nest is a fabulous house."

    It was very clean with amazing views and had great facilities, everything you need plus more. The linen was top quality, crisp white sheets. The welcome hamper much appreciated as we were late arriving. The house is in agreat location to explore Cornwall and 5 minutes from a fabulous beach. There is also a great spa just down the road which my husband enjoyed very much. Will definitely be coming back and hopefully the weather will be better.

Nestled in a quiet spot with dazzling views, this fabulous holiday home offers stylish and beautifully presented accommodation in the coastal village of Mawgan Porth, North Cornwall.

An ideal haven for families and friends to completely relax in, complete with stylish furnishings throughout and far reaching views from almost every window, Coastman's Nest is the ideal choice for your Cornish getaway.

From the moment you arrive you will feel instantly revived!

Step into the impressive open-plan living/dining space, where the smart and sunny kitchen area is just perfect for keen chefs and where you can sit and eat together around the dining table.

Even curl up on the sophisticated sofa with a good book.

The ground floor is complete with beautiful sea vistas and three spacious bedrooms offering Hypnos beds and Egyptian cotton bedding, whilst the family bathroom boasts a deep-soaking bath tub and separate shower cubicle.

Walk upstairs and enjoy the super seascape view from the main living room, where the sofas are ideal for snuggling up with a hot chocolate in front of the open fire on colder evenings.

Open the doors on the landing and step onto the private balcony, perfect for that early morning coffee and lazy moments enjoying the countryside and sea views.

The master bedroom boasts a king-size bed and its very own en-suite shower room making the most of a modern, tiled finish.

Outside you can relax on the private pretty hacienda-style patio with dining area, seating, loungers and bbq and watch the children play on the enclosed lawn.

A five-minute, downhill stroll will take you to the glorious beach at Mawgan Porth, which is perfect for water sports and swimmers.

Mawgan Porth offers a variety of amenities and things to do, with coastal walks along the impressive cliffs, while the town offers cafes, hotel, gift shops, a pub and even a surf school!

Luxury spa facilities are also available within walking distance for those looking to relax and unwind.

If you're looking to treat yourself, spend an evening at one of the Fine Dining restaurants in the area such as the Scarlett Hotel or Rick Stein's Seafood restaurant in Padstow.

For those who can tear themselves away from this idyllic location, just a short drive away are some great activities for all the family, including Newquay Zoo, St Eval Kart Circuit and the Blue Reef Aquarium.

This corner of Cornwall is certainly worth a visit as it has become something of a foodie Mecca, with the picturesque town of Padstow offering plenty of eateries and restaurants owned by Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth.

About the location


Watergate Bay 2 miles; Newquay 5 miles; Padstow 10 miles.

Nestled between Newquay and Padstow on the beautiful north Cornish coast, Mawgan Porth is a sheltered cove with golden sandy beach, great surf and plenty of caves and coastal footpath to explore. With little distraction from its golden sands, life here revolves around the beach. Laze in the summer sun, learn to ride the waves, or watch over stormy seas on a refreshing cliff top stroll. Mawgan Porth is also home to the fabulous adults-only Scarlet Hotel, which offers Spa treatments and facilities to non-residents - and nearby there is a wealth of fine dining restaurants such as Paul Ainsworth's No 6 and Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant. Mawgan Porth has a handful of shops, including a village store and deli, and a farm shop selling locally sourced meat, eggs, vegetables, bread and pasties, as well as tennis courts, a pitch and putt, and an 18-hole golf course overlooking the Atlantic.
