The Shack Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Shack is a delightful, single storey holiday cottage in Mawgan Porth near Newquay, and enjoys great views. With three bedrooms, a double, a single and a twin, as well as a family bathroom, this cottage sleeps five people. There is also a sitting room with dining area and a fitted kitchen with dining area and doors to the patio enjoying uninterrupted views. There is off road parking for two cars, and an enclosed garden. With the sea and beach so close by, as well as Newquay's attractions and the coastal path, The Shack is great all year round.

With 3 major beaches and the National Surf Centre, Newquay is a water sports paradise! The SW coast path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches.

This was our fourth time at The Shack as we enjoy the relaxing views and being so close to the sea. It is also an ideal base for walking and travelling to other locations in Cornwall.

Excellent location, so close to the beach and lovely coastal walks. Really appreciated the fact that everywhere we went was so dog friendly. Just perfect, thank you!

An excellent location to explore Cornwall's Atlantic coastline. Very secluded setting with a superb south facing outlook and pleasant short walk down to the beach.

The situation of The Shack was delightful and the rabbits playing in the garden were lovely to watch. The beds were very comfortable so we slept well thanks to the Cornish air!! Watergate Beach being so near was lovely too - a lovely place for a game of 'footie'. We loved sitting on the verandah in the warm sunshine - then at night we were able to enjoy the stars - felt we could almost reach out and touch them they were so bright.

The Shack is secluded yet only a 5 minute walk away from a lovely beach and a short drive to coastal walks. We shall definitely look forward to going again.

A very quiet location and the property so lovely. Newquay and Padstow are a few minutes drive away. It was really nice to sit outside the cottage in the evening and watch the rabbits.

This property is in a lovely location, just a short walk downhill to the beach and local shops. The Shack had everything you need for a holiday including games for children. I would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again.

A well presented property just as described. Located in a quiet area of Mawgan Porth with easy access to local shops, pub/restaurants. A delightful village with a very friendly population. The Shack is situated within easy driving distances for Cornish Tourism attractions. Beaches are first class as are the coastal walks. A most enjoyable holiday break! Even some bad weather did not distract us.

This was our second visit to The Shack and certainly will not be our last, we look forward to returning next year. Nothing to dislike at all, it was exactly as described. It is very convenient for the beach and walking and was very dog friendly. It's location is also private whilst still being close to all the local amenities.

The cottage was in a fantastic location to walk to the beach with our surf boards yet retain the privacy we love. Even our 2 teenagers were happy to come with us on this holiday. The cottage was just as described in the brochure and had everything we needed.

The location of the property is only as a five minute walk to the beach, making it an ideal location. Very dog friendly, both the The Shack and Cornwall in general.

Lovely location, great scenery and good surf. Mawgan Porth is a pretty town, great for families. We loved the location of the cottage looking down on the town and the scenery from the garden was superb. Cottage is very well equipped. Great place for a family holiday.

The location of the accommodation is excellent - only five minutes to the lovely beach! Gorgeous panoramic views from the garden, very quiet! Every home comfort included! All in all, it was enjoyed by the whole family. Cornwall is very dog friendly and our dog gives a huge paw up! We would recommend it to anyone!
