In a small and exclusive private development of luxury holiday retreats, in the heart of Mawgan Porth, you’ll find To the Shore. It’s been designed and built with luxury coastal living in mind, with a reverse level layout to give lovely views across the valley from the living areas and south-facing balcony. Generous bedrooms, ample facilities and carefully chosen furnishings make this holiday home a delight from the moment you step through the door. The epic sandy beach at Mawgan Porth, is a very short stroll away.

You’ll approach To the Shore up a private drive just 150 metres back from the beach. Pull into one of your allocated parking spaces (you can plug your electric vehicle right here if you drive one), and walk up steps past your extensive front lawn to your door.

Inside To The Shore

Stepping inside you’ll find a very contemporary retreat that’s been styled lovingly by its owners with an eye for iconic modern design and coastal comfort. On the ground floor you’ll find most of the sleeping accommodation. Overlooking the front lawn and garden, and with a four metre sliding patio door, is the principal bedroom complete with king sized bed, a fully tiled en suite shower room with large monsoon shower, fitted wardrobe and dressing table. The second bedroom is a lovely generously-sized twin room and will suit adults, teenagers or children alike, and the third is fitted out with playful bunk beds — both of these are to the rear of the property and have ample fitted wardrobes. A family bathroom with shower over bath, WC and basin completes the accommodation on this floor.

Up the wood and glass stairs is the stylish open plan living, dining and kitchen area. Wide patio doors slide open leading to the first floor balcony with its glazed balustrade. This space is south facing and catches the sun all day, with panoramic views of the valley. You have a sea glimpse to one side and this is a dramatic place to watch vibrant North Cornish coastal sunsets to the west. There’s an al fresco dining table for family and friends, as well as a suspended egg chair for you to escape the world with a good book or tipple.

The living space has a contemporary L-shaped sofa, additional beanbags and a 42” wall-mounted smart TV. The lovely oak dining table seats eight plus and hi-tech mood lighting can be set at the touch of a button for any time of day. The kitchen is a place for serious cooks and is configured around an island. It has AEG appliances — a large induction hob, electric oven and a second combination oven/microwave as well as a full height 70:30 fridge freezer. A flueless faux log fire adds a lovely touch of indulgent warmth and luxury for chillier winter nights.

Also on this floor is bedroom four, with a king sized bed and a generous en suite with monsoon shower. This room also comes with a cinema video projector with Netflix, Airplay and a collection of films — so you can chill with your favourite show that’s mega-sized on the wall. A WC and hand basin completes the layout of this floor.

Outside and the surrounding area

To the Shore has plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining. The south-facing front lawn is large and has a paved terrace with an outdoor sofa set, and behind the home, up some granite steps is an additional elevated patio ideal for evening entertaining and socialising. It’s complete with a gas fired barbecue grill, al fresco dining table for eight, an outdoor sofa set and fire pit. There is also a hot après-surf shower to the side of the home, along with a bench and wetsuit rail area.

You can be on Mawgan Porth beach from the front door in only a few moments — about 150m away and an easy stroll along open pavements (ideal if you happen to be in charge of a buggy). It’s one of the finest in North Cornwall — long, flat and sandy, and surrounded on both sides by cliffs and rocks. Caves and rock outcrops are revealed as the tide recedes and it’s popular with families and surfers alike, with lifeguards during the main holiday seasons and an excellent surf school (book well in advance). Opposite the beach is the little roadside village of Mawgan Porth, with facilities including the brilliant Cornish Fresh convenience store, two surf shops (Betty’s and Married to the Sea, and a traditional pub The Merrymoor Inn. Eateries here include a traditional fish and chip shop, Catch Seafood Bar, and for amazing pizzas Woodfire at the Mill (AKA Scott & Babs) ar up the valley in the pretty village of St Mawgan. There are numerous other restaurants up and down the coast here, as well as many more beaches to explore. These range from the epic watersport beaches of Watergate Bay and Fistral, to the rugged delights of Porthcothan Beach.

Things we love about To The Shore

This is a stunning combination of the perfect retreat in the perfect location. If you like the best of contemporary design and intelligent architecture you’ll love the property. If you like salt spray in your face and pristine Cornish sand between your toes, you’ll love Mawgan Porth. What could be better than waking up to a coffee on your terrace, a morning spent exploring the awesome coastal path (it goes right past here), an afternoon coasteering or learning to surf, and then back for a barbecue of locally caught seafood and a night of great conversation around your fire pit? We think To the Shore has it all, and we think you’ll agree.

What a beautiful house this in!

  • An incredible house

    What an incredible house that really felt like home for the week. A perfect place to relax with everything we needed. Sitting on the balcony with a glass or two looking at the waves, dancing to the music with the brilliant sound system and generally relaxing. Wonderful coastal walks to Watergate. The Japanese garden at St Mawgan was stunning — so tranquil. Thank you so much, finding it very hard to leave so I'm sure we'll be back.

  • A fabulous home

    You must be very proud of your home here at To The Shore. A fabulous home that suited my elderly dad, sister and our husbands very well. Our dog loved the verandah to survey the world! We loved easy walks on the beach and The Cornish Heritage Museum is a must visit. Thank you.

  • Such a relaxing time

    Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful place, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My sister and I made full use of your sound system as well as the projector. Our parents could not get over how well the place was built and the decor inside. Such a relaxing time, it was exactly what we needed away from the city. See you again soon!

  • A wonderful stay

    We have all enjoyed a wonderful stay at 'To The Shore' in Mawgan Porth. We are a family of seven and the house has been incredibly comfortable for us all. We've enjoyed breakfast on the balcony and listening to our dance music through the incredible sound system in the evenings. Days filled with wonderful walks with our dog Teddy, fun on the beach, surfing, jet skiing and all round relaxation! Great food and drinks found in Mawgan Porth, St. Mawgan and Lusty Glaze beach. Cornwall always gives it all. See you again soon!

  • Beautiful place

    We had the most amazing stay at your beautiful place, thank you so much. Our three kids loved your bunk beds and your house was so functional for a family with young children. We loved tide running and chasing waves at Mawgan Porth. My daughter, who is seven, wanted to stay behind with the house and be a little house elf. We love Cornwall!
