Q10 - SeaDrift
Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
On a quiet, private lane on the northern edge of Mawgan Porth, a stunning, large, custom-built detached house, cleverly designed with the living areas upstairs to take advantage of the terrific sea views. It is brilliantly positioned for both the beach (300 yard steep footpath down to a cove/coastal path) and hotel bar/restaurant (200 yards). At the front, sloping lawned garden and drive; at the back, neat garden on two levels with decks catching morning/evening sun (table/chairs, barbecue). Everything about this house is excellent, generously proportioned and very 21st cent. with lots of big windows providing masses of sunlight.
Door into wide, slate-floored hall running to the back of the house. Stairs curve elegantly up to hugely lofty open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, two electric ovens/gas hob) with woodburner and TV/DVD/video; loo (washbasin), all with travertine limestone flooring; folding doors to generous sun terrace (table/chairs) - fantastic sunsets. Downstairs in the hall, ample space for coats/boots and comfy seating; at the back, utility area with washing machine, butler sink and wet-room (two showers, loo), ideal for washing sandy bodies/wetsuits or clothes drying. Four bedrooms – two double, both with sea views through sliding glazed doors to garden: one with 5' bed, en suite shower-room (suite, two washbasins) and TV/DVD, the other with 6' bed and en suite shower-room (suite); and two twin, one with en suite bathroom (suite with spa bath, additional door to hall), and the other with French windows to garden. Damages Deposit £250. No children under 7, except pre-crawling babies. A superb house.

The West Country region
The Newquay coast: from the Hayle estuary near St Ives and Gwithian Towans to the Trevose peninsula stretch, almost continuously, superb sand/surf beaches. Newquay – on the railway and with airport (flights from London and a number of regional airports and flights to the Scilly Isles) – is the surfing capital, full of amusements, arcades, young people, pubs and 'life', short on some other things, but pretty harbour and what beaches (Fistral, Tolcarne)! Watergate Bay (just up the coast road from Newquay), home to the Extreme Academy, is the place to go if you're feeling adventurous - try surfing, kitesurfing, waveskiing or stand-up paddleboarding. If you're not an adrenaline junkie, it's also a good spot for the gourmet; Jamie Oliver has opened a restaurant, 'Fifteen', there. St Agnes, a little ex-tin-mining town, has preserved itself remarkably (small proper shops) and attractively. Bedruthan Steps (cliff-high rocks tower out of the beach) is one of the great coast sights (and low-tide walks). Easy drive to The Eden Project (see South Cornwall).
Mawgan Porth: village of mostly modern houses, pub, restaurants, deli, wine bar, hotels and beach shops clustered around a beautiful cove of soft sand. Good for bodyboarding. Magnificent beaches and international facilities for surfing at Newquay (airport), 3 miles. Golf and pony-trekking nearby. Watergate Bay (watersports school, Jamie Oliver's restaurant and The Venus Café), 3½ miles. Padstow, 7.
