Here is my guide for the five things to do when in Mawgan Porth, some might just surprise you!
Stay at The Scarlet – Set back in the cliff side of Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, The Scarlet stands proud as one of Cornwall’s modern icons. If Agatha Christie was still alive, a wealthy heiress would meet her maker in one of the stunning 37 bedrooms! A must do whilst staying is taking a dip in a hot tub over looking the cliff.
Survey the Coastal Path – Starting from The Scarlett take the 8 mile coastal path to Constantine Bay. This One way walk will take you past sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and the iconic Bedruthan Steps.
Visit the National Lobster Hatchery – The National Lobster Hatchery can be found on the docks of the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Padstow. Their aim is to help maintain a healthy lobster population in Cornwall through conservation, education and research. The Hatchery is fun and the staff (in true Cowrnish style) are friendly and very well informed. This guy (above) was 30 years old and the baby Lobsters really are cute. The Hatchery relies on donations, so why not help and adopt a lobster – I did!
Stein it – Just a few yard for the Hatchery is Stein’s Fish & Chips. No need to book, you are seated on communal tables and orders are taken at the table. True to the fish and chip tradition, the food arrives fresh, fast and fried. The specials change daily and even veggies (like me) are catered for!
Take Fifteen – Fifteen Cornwall is part of Jamie Oliver’s global social enterprise which aims to empower those who deserve a second chance. The ambiance, staff, food and cocktails are as expected – “pucka!”
