Here in Cornwall, our country lanes can be confusing for a Sat Nav, we find using the post code TR8 4BX works best.

Our home. There are a few small shops that sell what you need. For such a small place, there’s also a surprising number of good places to eat. Some of our favourite places to eat can be found in our cuisine journal.

There are few quirks to living here. Phone signal isn’t strong -- but no one seems to mind too much.

There’s also very little light pollution around, so the night’s amazing constellations are easy to see here. View our stargazing journal post for more helpful tips.

Our Doorstep

Mawgan Porth beach

A pathway leading from our garden, will take you to the sand.

The shape of the beach itself changes greatly with the tides. When the water’s high, the sea comes right into the cove. But at low tide, the beach becomes a vast, flat sweep of sand that stretches outwards. It invites exploration.

The South West Coast Path

The scenic South West Coast Path plots just below Bedruthan.

To the north, the track heads for the National Trust’s windswept base at Carnewas. Head this way for an inspiring sight of Bedruthan Steps, a strip of craggy stacks that resemble huge stepping stones.

To the south, the path skirts the nearby farm fields as it tracks towards Watergate Bay.

At the height of summer, the bright sun is up in the sky by 5.30am, then doesn’t set until almost 9.30pm. Temperatures in July and August average around 16°C, often reaching above 20°C. As the sea warms up, dolphins arrive at our shores and can sometimes be glimpsed.

Winter is colder with shorter days, but brings its own charm. The wind can sometimes draw the sea mist inland, blanketing Mawgan Porth’s valley in a soft fog.
