Local Area

Seaport Lodge lies between Padstow and Newquay in the small, pretty village of Mawgan Porth.

It’s about 10-minutes by car to the famous fishing port of Padstow, renowned as the home of Rick Stein’s 4 restaurants, delis and seafood school. It’s also a 15-minute drive to Newquay, the home of UK surfing.

Mawgan Porth is characterised by its off-the-beaten-track character and relaxed feel and is also a popular surfing beach.

The village is quiet and picturesque and boasts a child-friendly beach, a farm shop, a pub, a restaurant and a couple of hotels. Bedruthan Steps Hotel and the newly launched and widely acclaimed luxury Scarlet Hotel, both have spas and excellent restaurants.

At low tide, the beach reveals a huge expanse of sand and is perfect for sand castles, kite-flying and beach games.

Near the beach you’ll also find a shop / deli selling all the essentials, plus some luxuries. There is also a pub and restaurant for relaxing after fun on the beach.

This entire coastline is absolutely thriving with tourist attractions – far too many to write about on these pages. Therefore we have left a large number of brochures in the house to give you some ideas.
