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. The well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, is a fabulous sociable space, just made for spending quality time with family and friends and with bi-fold doors leading out to the balcony, this is the perfect spot for sipping a cold aperitif whilst watching the waves and the world go by.

Oyster Bed was amazing. It's exactly as described and fulfilled our needs as a family of four adults. We spent many hours looking at the wonderful view from the house. Please don't let the short walk to the village down the side of the road put you off, it really isn't bad at all !!

A lovely home in a fantastic location. I had no problems with the hill down to the beach and the house had everything we needed including a wonderful view. Definitely want to return.

Holidays in Mawgan Porth

Mawgan Porth is a peaceful area on the North coast of Cornwall situated between Newquay and Padstow. With beautiful scenery, a sandy beach and fantastic walking and cycle routes, it’s perfect for a beachside holiday.

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. 

Top tip

Feeling energetic? Walk the coast path to Padstow and enjoy some breathtaking views along the way!

Mawgan Porth beach

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.


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.

This is a beautiful property in a lovely location. Handy for walks and lots of good quality eating out places on the doorstep. The walk down the hill was fine and gave a fantastic view of the beach. We will be back!

Fantastic house, fantastic location, with a superb beach in the doorstep.

Not the fault if the property but such a shame not at least a small path from the property down the hill. Cars/buses etc with us also walking on the road can be an unsafe, especially at night (take a torch if visiting the pub/restaurant in the evening)

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad that you enjoyed this beautiful property. It really is in a stunning, sought after location, with amazing views. Sadly, there isn't a permanent pathway to the beach from the property, so this may be something to consider. Though fortunately it is only a 3-minute walk along the road to get to the beach, and with the hill and the sharp bend, the traffic doesn't tend to go past quickly, but it is certainly worth remembering to bring a torch or use the torch on your phone if you are walking along there at night. Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments and we hope that we will see you back here again soon. Aspects Holidays, Customer Services

Second visit to the Oyster Bed property and very glad to return. Property is positioned nicely above Mawgan Porth giving great views to the beach and village. The property is finished to a high standard and very well equipped, with nice little extras, books, games and a basket of lovely throws. We enjoyed many moments taking in the scenery on the balcony. Mawgan Porth is such a simple little village but offers everything needed for a great family beach holiday. We have visited many times and will definitely be back soon.

We had a fantastic holiday at The Oyster Bed. Sea views were wonderful spent most evenings with a glass of wine enjoying the view. We loved St Mawgan did lots of walks and discovered nice cafes and the Falcon Inn pub. We will be back

This property is very well appointed in every aspect… views amazing and the decor and furnishings are of luxury standard… but the house is also very homely with everything you would need to cook if needed. We would definitely return.. only downside is the walk to beach from property.. maybe a problem for anyone with disabilities and parents with pushchairs and toddlers.. but overall we loved our stay.

The accommodation was amazing, the level of furnishing was fantastic and we found it so comfortable, the beds were super comfy. The kitchen was really well stocked and we loved the complimentary supplies, it was also great to have some basics like salt/pepper and dishwasher tablets too. The location of The Oyster Bed suited us perfectly, with great local amenities. The views from the lounge and dining areas provided the best of both landscapes. Our children also loved the selection of books and games provided, all so really well thought through for a family to enjoy. Truly one of the best holidays we’ve had in Cornwall.

We were blessed with great weather for October to start with. The house was exactly as described. Really warm (a bit too warm actually!). Comfy bed, great shower. Loved the new microwave, oven and induction hob. Comfy sofa. Enjoyed sitting in the garden and good size balcony. The bifold doors really brought the outside in too. Incredible views out of all windows, beach and country. House is very well equipped for cooking and for children.

Although there is not a pavement on the walk down to the shops and beach, but there is a well worn narrow "track" and it is a short walk, albeit a bit steep for the unfit or infirm holiday maker. Great walks along the coastal path and inland to St. Mawgan.

Left feeling very refreshed and motivated and that's what a holiday is all about!! Thank you.

Lovely place, incredible views. High quality furnishings & appliances. Great showers.

Small cleaning issue resolved swiftly when highlighted.

Oyster Bed is a 5 star holiday retreat. Extremely high quality and comfortable accommodation with beautiful views of the sea. It is in an excellent location only 5minutes walk to all the local amenities and the beach. We had a fabulous family holiday and we will certainly book again.

Fantastic location with wonderful views down to village and beach. Loved the balcony and had many breakfasts and evening drinks looking out over Mawgan Porth Very well equipped kitchen as enjoyed eating in as well as out at the Merrymoor and local take aways. Nice garden area with surf shack and outside shower used numerous times after surfing. Very comfortable beds too! Overall a fantastic holiday with lots of sunshine!

Wonderful stay at the Oyster Bed. Beautiful property set in a stunning location at Mawgan Porth. Dog friendly and close to the dog friendly beach. We will be returning!

This is a great property with fantastic views and a quick walk into the village and beach. Bedrooms and bathrooms were great , beds were really comfortable and plenty of storage. Would definitely stay here again.

We have just come back from a wonderful week staying at The Oyster Bed in stunning Mawgan Porth.

We loved the stylish decor/furnishings, new equipment, and layout of the house - the view overlooking Mawgan Porth beach from the balcony was wonderful!

Car parking at the property was easy, with 2 generous sized bays for each property.

It was so nice to be able to quickly walk down to the beach from the property and spend the day enjoying the beach and surf. Thanks for providing 2 bodyboards for guests’ use.

The little shops in the village were very well stocked and the food at the Merrymoor Inn was really good, especially the catch of the day. Our daughter and husband booked surfing lessons and hired equipment from the local surf school.

The house and location were superb and we received great customer service from Aspects Holidays from the moment we booked up. We certainly hope to stay at the Oyster Bed again!

Beautiful property in a great Location, with wonderful views of mawgan porth beach. Property was very comfortable and well equipped.

Overall a really nice house to stay in, very modern and perfect location! Great garden for a dog, good parking - be aware there is no working electric car charger available if you need it. Would definitely stay again!

This company is extremely good, we've stayed at their properties on numerous occasions now, and you know that they will not be renting a property that is not up to their high standards. The Oyster Bed did not disappoint. Spotlessly clean on arrival, a very well equipt kitchen, very spacious lounge and comfortable bedrooms. View from balcony superb. Paddy, our labradoodle had a wonderful time with the beach 5 minutes walk away, and well maintained coastal paths heading East and West of the beach. Thanks, for a lovely break.

Oyster bed is a great location.The views and the fact that it has a safe garden for four legged guests is a bonus.

We loved our stay at The Oyster Bed in Morgan Porth. A fabulous house (the best we have stayed in) - so spacious, comfortable (brilliant beds and sofas) with a balcony to enjoy early morning and evening sun looking down on the beach (which was a lovely clean beach with regularly serviced bins by a lovely crew - I think it is a private beach). We were lucky with decent weather and great surf (if the beach is red flagged we found Watergate Bay was still surfing). I think no matter the weather we would have been happy staying in this lovely property. Great local fish restaurant "Catch" which we went to twice and, probably, would happily have eaten there most nights. All in all a great place for a holiday.

This property is perfect for those that want an easy walk to the beach. The house is very light and airy and provides everything needed for a relaxing and comfortable holiday.

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.

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!
