The Oyster Bed is an exquisite choice for a coastal escape whatever the season, with super-stylish interiors, high vaulted ceilings and stunning views over Mawgan Porth beach and the ocean. In under a five minute walk you will find yourself on the beach where you can dip your toes in the soothing sea or surf the waves. Immerse yourself in the laid back atmosphere of one of Cornwall's most desirable hot spots, in one of the beach front cafes and restaurants, before returning to watch the waves and the sinking sun from the balcony. Finally, a restful night's sleep in the sumptuous beds.

A spacious, enclosed garden at the rear is ideal for enjoying lunch outside, whilst the reverse living gives you the best views from the living area.

We spent a lovely week at the Oyster bed in June 2021- it is an excellent property, well maintained and fitted out to a high standard. Contrary to the forecast, we had good weather all week. There are loads of things to do around and about in addition to the fabulous beach at Mawghan Porth, where we enjoyed a family surfing lesson. Go karting at St Eval is fun and Tintagel Castle is awe inspiring. Great fish and chips in Mawghan Porth and plenty of restaurants in Padstow. Crantock Beach just the other side of Newquay is a must.

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.

Stunning property! Fabulous location. Excellent facilities in the house We loved our week there!

The Oyster Bed is an amazing place to stay. Stunning views of Mawgan Porth beach & surroundings. Fixtures & fittings all of a high standard, comfy beds, beautiful well equipped kitchen & easy parking. Lots of beautiful places within easy reach, you don't have to travel far. Coastal walks aplenty!! Would love to visit again sometime, one of my most favourite places I've visited in Cornwall, excellent!

We absolutely loved our stay at the Oyster Bed! the views are stunning and so convenient with a quick stroll down to the beach and facilities. We found the local store to be really useful too stocking most things. We would defiantly stay again.

Wow absolutely loved The Oyster Bed - in fact it was so good we booked again for next year on the second day of our break. Mawgan Porth is a favourite of ours so this accommodation really hit the mark on location and views. And the accommodation is lovely - would highly recommend!
