“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Have had a fantastic week at The Pin has every thing you need to enjoy your stay in cornwall. has fantastic views over Mawgan Porth beach and just a short stroll down the hill and you are on the beach at low tide it is amazing and fantastic for dog owners. After a walk on the beach the two pubs are very welcoming with good food and very dog friendly all in all a perfect place to enjoy this part of cornwall. Would recommend a visit.

“The most perfect house to stay in a most amazing part of Cornwall”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Mawgan Porth is a stunning place to take children and adults alike, the beautiful beach, the acres of sand and all the other things on the doorstep like the crazy golf, the surf school, the walks, the beach with great rock pools, sand, the river and caves to explore for hours on end and staying in The Pin means it is absolutely right in front of you and around you all within minutes. The house is perfect…we have stayed a week for many years as the children have grown up and it has never let us down. It is so well equipped, comfy, warm when wet outside and lovely and fresh feeling when it is a hot sunny day. The decor, the furniture , the whole way it is presented just works year in year out even for older children and everything in it always works. Its location is so handy as one can just walk up and down to the beach in minutes, the views are breathtaking in the evenings whilst the children reluctantly go to bed, or even when staring at the mist lifting off the sea to revel a better summer day later on, just so uplifting and the house just feels like a home even if not ones own. The terrace it has is great, just to sit and read, play games or to eat food at throughout the day, unless the cafes and local shops are not providing the meals for you…all are superb and cater for every whim. So much is on offer, so much choice, but above all the house makes it a stay in Cornwall that will never fail to disappoint regardless of the English weather. Wifi, often unheard off in rentals in Cornwall, cleanliness, location, its own parking place which is always accessible, the list is endless and once you have discovered it you will be hard pressed to ever find anywhere that guarantees such a great time away , no wonder we have been going there for a decade and I wouldn't dream of finding any other house in Mawgan Porth…it really just seems to be perfect. On top of that the owners just seem to ensure it all runs so smoothly…faultless all round.

“Beautiful house, fantastic location and amazing view.”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a fantastic holiday at the The Pin. The house is fully equipped with everything that you need for a perfect holiday and the view from the lounge window is breath taking. It's also situated in an ideal location to explore the local area and there are loads of things to see and do. It's only a short walk down to the beach from the house and it's a few minutes up to the Bedruthan Hotel which has a great adventure playground for kids and is a really good place for lunch or evening meal. For eating out we would also recommend the Travellers Rest pub on the headland and the Cornish Arms in St Merryn which is only a 20min drive away. Padstow and St Ives are both lovely Cornish towns well worth a visit (we would recommend the park and ride for both in peak season) and it's definitely worth catching the ferry from Padstow to Rock as there are some lovely beaches to explore. We'd also suggest hiring bikes and cycling the Camel Trail. All in all we would thoroughly recommend The Pin, not just for the standard of the accommodation but also for it's great location.
