Porthcothan Mill Cottage

Things to do


The cottage is within easy reach of a range of things to see and do in north Cornwall. Local food can be found at numerous places nearby, from supermarkets to local deli's and farm shops.  


The beach is a 5 minute walk away via a footpath through the valley, and has a great beach shop - Porthcothan Bay Stores. They provide a few essential items as well as home-made lunch time meals, ice creams, proper coffee and a few luxury treats, alongside beach essentials including surf board hire and wetsuits.


The area has a number of diverse restaurants and pubs, catering to a range of tastes and budgets in the local villages of St Merryn, St Mawgan, Mawgan Porth, Padstow and Watergate Bay. We are also around the corner from Berryfield's Farm, rumoured to serve the best cream tea in Cornwall.


There are also a range of activities to do in the area including horse riding, surfing lessons, coasteering, sailing, kayaking, and sea safari's.  


The cottage is located close to Bedruthan Steps, the Camel Trail and kids animal farm. If you want to go further afield there is the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, National Trust properties (Lanhydrock Estate), Port Isaac and Tintagel Castle.
