Boasting a prime location elevated high above the golden beach at Mawgan Porth, this welcoming family home enjoys glorious sea views and is just a 10-minute walk from the sand and surf.
The perfect pad for those seeking a week of fresh sea air, Gwillen offers a fantastic seaside holiday with all the homely comforts you could wish for.
Spacious throughout, this dormer bungalow has a fantastic sea-facing conservatory, a cosy sitting room with open fire, handy utility/boot area, smart kitchen diner with plenty of books and family board games, and four good-sized bedrooms – one of which is located under the eaves on the first floor and makes a snug den for young children.
Outside is a well-kept tiered garden with a lawn and a patio – and outdoor furniture for dinner with a view!
There’s even an outdoor shower -perfect for rinsing away sandy feet – and a garage where bikes and surf boards can be safely stored.
Do as much or as little as the mood takes you here – head down to the beach and learn a few tricks at the surf school, grab a bucket and see what you can find in the rock pools, discover stunning sea vistas with a walk along the coastal footpath, or simply relax with a Spa day at the Bedruthan Steps Hotel or adults-only Scarlet Hotel.
A short drive away are some great family days out, including Newquay Zoo, Waterworld, St Eval Kart Circuit and the Blue Reef Aquarium – and the area has also become something of a foodie Mecca, with restaurants owned by Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth in the popular harbour town of Padstow, and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen overlooking the waves at Watergate Bay.
Whatever time of year you choose to visit, there is something for everyone here.

Newquay is the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a watersports paradise. The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 14 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached within 45 minutes. Picturesque St Ives and the Tate St Ives gallery is around an hour's drive or a train ride away. In fact, because nothing in Cornwall is far from Newquay, it’s the perfect touring base.
