Set back from the picturesque Mawgan Porth beach, Fourburrows is a welcoming and family orientated contemporary holiday home, with so much to offer. Newly refurbished, this large property is both child and dog friendly, and is best placed and equipped to cater for families of all sizes, or even a couple of families at a time! Fourburrows is a five minute walk from the coast path and a perfect haven to return to after a busy day on the beach. The sheltered and private garden is also a good size, and there is plenty of parking making it even more suitable for a big group.
What is really unique about Fourburrows is the selection of carefree living spaces that are available. There are no less than four living areas in total. The main living room has a generously sized Ultra HD 4K smart TV and contemporary wood-burner and living room two has a further TV and wonderful views down the garden to the sea. The third living space doubles up as a ‘Games Room’ and comes equipped with a Wii and various things to do for the gamers of the family, The conservatory at the front of the property runs almost the length of the house and has amazing views of the sea as well as looking over the beautiful garden. It has a seating area at one end and plenty of dining space at the other, comfortably seating 10, plus a toddler chair and 2 highchairs available. The house benefits from fast fibre broadband and a wide selection of TV programmes, thanks to the Netflix and Now TV access, allowing you to stay entertained come rain or shine.
The kitchen is practical and very well equipped, with plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans. There is a full-size fridge-freezer in the property, as well as those other essential appliances such as a washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher; necessary items to keep the modern family going! Fourburrows also offers a playroom containing various toys and bits and bobs to keep younger children entertained.
You will find four bedrooms on the first floor of the house. (One of the living rooms can convert into an extra double room if necessary). Two of these bedrooms are king size and enjoy astonishing sea views across Mawgan Porth, and the twin room has side-on sea glimpses and views of the nearby village. The fourth bedroom has a ‘low to the ground’ single bed suitable for a child or the occasional adult who doesn’t mind a different sleeping perspective — as well as small child’s bed.
Out and about
Mawgan Porth and the pretty village of St Mawgan sit in the perfect location for a peaceful, relaxing and wonderfully memorable holiday here in Cornwall. Fourburrows is just a few minutes away from the beach and the South West coast path; simply take the path from the back gate at the bottom of the garden. The Bedruthan Hotel (five minutes away and great for an evening dinner, or spa treatment) and Watergate Bay are also within walking distance.
The area is as loved by locals as much as it is by visitors, which speaks volumes about this beautiful Cornish corner. It makes a great base to explore North Cornwall. The area is not short of places to eat and drink; try Catch Seafood next to Mawgan Porth beach or the Blue Fish Bar for excellent fish and chips! Padstow, Watergate Bay and Newquay are all a short drive away, and offer numerous options from some of the UK’s best fine dining, to great visitor attractions. This village and its surrounding area truly captures the Cornish way of life, whilst being surrounded by beautiful scenery.
The area also boasts some fabulous beaches, with nearly 20 in the surrounding area! Many of these are quiet, sandy coves, which are not only stunning with their golden sands and clear waters, but they are also relatively quiet compared to the larger beaches. However, this does mean that amenities and lifeguard cover is lacking on many of them, so make sure you’re aware of tide times and if you’re unsure about rip currents then make sure you ask a local’s advice. Visit the sweeping Porthcothan Bay, venture down to the dramatic and beautiful Bedruthan Steps, or visit the beach located in Doc Martin’s hometown of Port Isaac. All of these beaches are connected via the famous South West Coast Path, so why not grab a backpack and explore the surrounding coast?
Things we love
Fourburrows, like this area of Cornwall, has something for everyone. Cooks will love the well-equipped kitchen and generous dining area, peace-seekers will appreciate the choice of relaxing living areas. Children will be able to let off steam in the Games room, and in the area you are spoilt for choice; you will have some of Cornwall’s best beaches for surf, play or simply hanging out — and miles of inland and coastal pathways to enjoy and explore. We love how much Fourburrows has to offer for an an action packed family holiday!
