Holidays in Morvah

The small hamlet of Morvah is located on the north coast of west Cornwall, and is very typically Poldark countryside. Situated between St Ives and Lands End, this stretch of coast road is considered as one of the top ten most beautiful drives in Europe. Stunning scenery and breathtaking views await you in this quiet corner of west Cornwall. 

Morvah is ideal walking country, with open fields stretching down to mighty granite cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. So if you’re seeking some much-needed time in the great outdoors, with footpaths beneath your feet and sea air rushing past you, Morvah could be the perfect destination for you.

This area of Cornwall is perfect for walking; with wooded valleys, quaint villages, rolling fields, Cornish coves and coastal paths all waiting to be explored.

Beaches

West Cornwall is home to lots of hidden coves, which once upon a time would have been used for smuggling. However, some of the bigger beaches are far more easily accessible and family-friendly.

Portherras Cove Beach

Only accessible by foot, this sandy cove, located at the end of a small valley, is off the beaten track; be prepared for a walk down and a bit of a climb back up. 

Porthcurno Beach

This stunning beach boasts soft golden sand and turquoise waters, and with lifeguard cover from mid-May through to the end of September, it’s a popular choice for families. Sheltered by cliffs on either side, and with stunning views, it’s truly a little piece of paradise.  

Sennen Cove Beach

A large expanse of golden sand, this is the perfect place to visit for a day at the beach. Whether you plan to spend your time surfing, swimming, rock-pooling or simply relaxing on the sand, there’s plenty of space for everyone. 

St Ives’ Beaches

Of course, you could head into St Ives for the day and visit one of the beautiful beaches there. From the expansive Porthmeor, great for surfing, to the smaller and more sheltered Porthgwidden beach. Whichever beach you choose here, there’s always plenty of facilities nearby.
