A very comfortable accommodation in a very quiet location. We were pleasantly surprised to find on our arrival scones, jam and cream, a bottle of prosecco, milk and crackers and cheese waiting for us. Well equipped, there was everything we needed for our stay. The village is within walking distance, although hilly with a great pub but the beach is over 2 miles and found we did need the car. The whole of this part of Cornwall has some great beaches and quiet rural villages and Ruskin is well located to visit all. If you are concerned about the airport being close don’t be, we hardly heard anything and what we did hear was not intrusive.

Mawgan Porth holidays

Located on the rugged north coast with a large sandy beach, Mawgan Porth is perfect for a restful holiday in a quiet setting away from the busier nearby towns. Just a stone’s throw from the beach you’ll find a café, pub, restaurant and fish and chip shop, so you can grab some food after a long day at the beach. 

Beaches

This west facing beach is sheltered by high cliffs on either side and even at high tide there’s plenty of room for everyone. With lifeguards during the summer, and dogs allowed all year on the beach, the whole family will be able to enjoy sunny days on the sand. From sunbathing and swimming, to rock pooling and body boarding, there’s something for everyone.

Walks

Take the coastal path north from Mawgan Porth to head to Padstow, and south to visit Newquay. Pop on your walking shoes and take in the spectacular views as you ramble the South West Coast Path.

St Pirans Day Celebrations

Gool Perran Lowen - Happy St Piran's Day in Cornish! 

St Piran's Day, celebrated on March 5th, is the national day of Cornwall, named after one of Cornwall's patron saints. According to legend, St Piran, a 5th century Irish Abbot, was thrown into the sea in Ireland tied to a mill stone; somehow he washed up on the Cornish coast still alive. He made Cornwall his new home and became the patron saint of tin-miners after rediscovering tin smelting. 

Today, Cornwall still celebrates his heritage. On the closest Sunday to St Piran's day, Perranorth hosts one of the largest St Piran's celebrations. Held at the dunes on Perranporth, a play is performed to re-enact St Piran's life. Spectators are welcomed and encouraged to dress in black, white and gold, the colours of Cornwall. 

Other celebrations will be held in various locations across Cornwall.
