  • "Wonderful clean cottage, lovely features and perfect location."

    Cottage has lots of DVDs, & games. Comfortable furniture. Close to the beach, fantastic local pub. Few negative features. Washing machine didn't work. Both showers leaked. The boiler needed resetting so no hot water or heating for the last day. Other wise perfect cottage

  • "Lovely cottage in a excellent location."

    Cottage was very clean with all amenities you would need for a comfortable stay. Board games and paddle boards a great addition. We had a fab week and would definitely return. Bonus that the nearest pub is situated behind the cottage. Great pub grub & lovely staff.

  • "A great holiday in a lovely location, 15 minute drive into Newquay…."

    With lots of gorgeous Sandy beaches very close by. The cottage was spotless and clean with lovely additional touches like board games & bodyboards. We have had a great week staying at Lilac cottage and was sad to leave. Highly recommend.

  • "We loved the holiday cottage It was all fabulous except the beds."

    Not the most comfortable, definitely could do with an update on the mattresses! Plus there was quite an awful smell when we had shower something wrong with the drains I think, my husband unblocked the shower drain as it was pooling in the shower tray and leaking, that seem to help

The property

Lying in the quiet hamlet of Trevarrian is this charming, 200-year-old dwelling, Lilac Cottage, beautifully renovated to offer six guests a characterful holiday home in Cornwall.

Just a stone's throw from the amenities of Mawgan Porth and the excitement of Newquay, Lilac Cottage is the ideal choice for those wanting a tranquil space to enjoy whilst being within easy reach of excitement.

Step into the spacious kitchen/diner and notice the classic range cooker resting in the alcove, now just for decorative purposes, it shows the property's character and age along with the original slate flooring, contrasted well by all the essential modern appliances within the lovely kitchen area.

Come together around the long dining table with bench seating for mealtimes, toasting to an exciting trip, before heading into the sitting room to finish your day with a good film as you sink into the sofas.

A woodburning stove can warm you as you wind down in the sitting room, appreciating the lovely local artwork on the walls and the elegant, minimalist style in which the property has been decorated.

Travel upstairs to find a landing with several classic timber doors with latch openings, with the first on the left revealing the pretty twin bedroom, complete with Velux windows in the sloping ceiling.

Next along is the beautiful bathroom where a roll-top bath offers a luxurious spot to soak in, perfect after a busy day of walking and activities.

The third bedroom is a bunk room, great for children, and finally completing the layout of the first floor is the master double bedroom, featuring a TV and an en-suite shower room.

On sunny mornings, bring your coffee outside to the enclosed garden, as your canine companion stretches their legs, you can think over your plans for the day.

Trevarrian is a tranquil hamlet with a local pub less than half a mile from your doorstep, great for enjoying a well-deserved pint after a big day, while the small bay of Mawgan Porth is where you'll discover the closest shops and takeaways to enjoy.

The South West Coast Path is the perfect way to begin exploring the area whether it's your first time visiting Cornwall or the fiftieth; stunning seascapes, secluded coves and charming villages can all be expected along the way.

Head down to the vibrant town of Newquay for arguably the best surf in the country, with waves coming in from the Cribbar Reef on Fistral Beach drawing in many keen surfers, along with plenty of surf schools to get you on your way to being a pro!

Visit the fantastic Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay to marvel at the amazing sea creatures, perfect for all ages, as well as Newquay Zoo home to red pandas among many more creatures!

The Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre is nearby to Lilac Cottage, as is the beautiful Watergate Beach, less crowded than the likes of Newquay and backed by scenic green meadows.

Within easy reach of Crantock, Perranporth and Padstow to name but a few, this area of Cornwall provides plenty of variety.

Enjoy a fun-filled stay at Lilac Cottage in this delightful corner of Cornwall.

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.
