A vast, contemporary coastal retreat for group breaks, nestled into a Cornish cliff top with breathtaking panoramic views of Mawgan Porth Beach.
  • Sleeps: 14
  • Bedrooms: 7
  • Bathrooms: 6
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights

The Sunday Times award-winning Mawgan Porth Beach is truly spectacular, with acres of fine golden sand, enchanting coves, and rolling Atlantic breakers that make for an unforgettable surfing experience.

The beach is also perfectly located in between Padstow and Newquay; close to the invigorating North Cornwall bustle, yet with a blissful feeling of being worlds away.

You’ll find Carne Crest right here, beautifully nestled into a cliff top that faces the beach, for panoramic, utterly awe-inspiring views.

Dog-friendly, and sleeping up to 14 lucky guests, nobody has to miss out on the ultimate in Cornish beach retreats, and you’ll find plenty of scenery-showcasing space for everybody.

The sprawling beach house is owned and loved by a friendly couple who also happen to be creative designers, and their detailed attention to style shows throughout. Furnishings and accessories are sleek, minimalist, and deeply comfortable, allowing that remarkable scenery to speak for itself as you relax with your loved ones.

Each floor boasts its own living area and kitchen, meaning everyone can be as sociable or as individual as they like. The large first-floor kitchen is an ideal hangout space, cheerfully flooded with daylight from panoramic windows… it’s so gorgeous, in fact, that there could be arguments over who gets to do the cooking!

Relax with a drink on the beach-facing terrace – it’s the perfect way to enjoy the sun sinking over the glinting ocean – as you let the kids and dogs run off steam in the garden, which includes plenty of storage space for beach games and watersports equipment.
