    “The Shack is in a fabulous ...”

    The Shack is in a fabulous location, just a five minute walk down the hill to the dog friendly beach, and village, where there are shops, pub, restaurants etc. Lovely views from the garden. The bungalow itself is suffering a little and could do with a bit of a makeover in places. The kitchen is well equipped, however upon our arrival the washing machine had 2" of stagnant water in it and I had to clean it before I was able to use it (note left for owner). This "puddle" appeared again before ...

    The Shack is in a fabulous location, just a five minute walk down the hill to the dog friendly beach, and village, where there are shops, pub, restaurants etc. Lovely views from the garden. The bungalow itself is suffering a little and could do with a bit of a makeover in places. The kitchen is well equipped, however upon our arrival the washing machine had 2" of stagnant water in it and I had to clean it before I was able to use it (note left for owner). This "puddle" appeared again before the end of the week. The fittings in the bathroom are rusty. The mattresses on the beds are hard and need replacing as they were very uncomfortable. Previous reviews have also mentioned this! In the lounge, the carpet (shown in the online pictures of the property) has been replaced with laminate flooring and was very slippery for our dog, and the fact it showed carpet in the pictures was one of the reasons swaying us to book this property. Throughout the property many of the double glazed windows have blown and are full of condensation blurring views. We couldn't open the patio doors in the lounge. The kitchen window looked like it was about to fall out, so we didn't attempt to open it. The grass hadn't been cut for some time. After showering the first time my husband had to clear the drain at the rear of the premises as it was blocked and water flowing along the path. Having said all the above we were lucky to have good weather and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Not sure how often you grade your properties but you may wish to visit as 4 ticks is a little optimistic compared with other properties we have stayed in.

The property

Newquay 5.5 miles. This detached Newquay holiday home is in a secluded position on the hill overlooking Mawgan Porth Beach, a mile from the long stretch of sandy beach at Watergate Bay north of Newquay.

Reached via a long, private driveway off the road, and with spectacular, uninterrupted countryside views from the garden, this Mawgan Porth bungalow is the ideal place to unwind.

Offering comfortable family accommodation with patio doors opening to the secluded private front garden, the safe, sandy beach is just a 5 minute walk from this Newquay holiday home with its range of shops and cafes.

Much of the coastline to the north of Mawgan Porth is owned by the National Trust and there are a host of pretty coves and rocky outcrops to discover on foot from the coast path.

For families, the popular beaches of Booby's Bay, Constantine Bay and Mother Ivey's Bay are all within a 15 minute drive along narrow lanes.

The attractive village of St Mawgan is two miles up the vale from the beach and has a traditional village inn and a 13th century church with one of the finest collections of monumental brasses in the country.

Further afield, the busy resort of Newquay offers many attractions including its aquarium, zoo, Trenance Gardens and plenty of shops, bars and bistros, while the Eden Project is only 14 miles away.

A lovely Newquay holiday home close to one of the most spectacular stretches of Cornish coastline.

About the location

NEWQUAY

Holywell 6 miles; Perranporth 8.5 miles; Truro 14 miles; Padstow 14 miles.

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.
