Friesian Valley Cottages (refs 28805, 28806, 31303, 31304 and 31287) are situated in the tranquil, rural hamlet of Mawla on the beautiful North Cornwall Coast. It is just a short drive from the golden sandy beaches of Portreath and Porthtowan where surf hire and lessons are available, and close to beautiful woodland walks and cycle paths. The owners live on-site and are on hand should you need advice or assistance during your stay.

These holiday cottages have been refurbished in 2020 and are perfectly located for exploring the rugged north coast with its surf, coastal paths and long stretches of sandy beaches, and the south coast with its hidden coves and tranquil sailing waters. The area is popular with walkers as the site is close to the National Trust coastal path and just a few yards from the Coast to Coast Mineral Tramway. Cycle hire available close by.

The area is perfect for fishing, birdwatching, golf, sailing and surfing, or simply relaxing. There are a number of popular attractions and National Trust houses and gardens close by. It is a short drive to Falmouth with its busy harbour and town, Pendennis Castle and The National Maritime Museum. Take the scenic coastal train from nearby St Erth along the coastline into St Ives, which has several, lovely individual shops, pubs and cafés. There is a beautiful long stretch of beach and sand dunes at Hayle, leading up to the famous lighthouse of Godrevey and Gwithian where, if you are lucky, you will see the seals basking on the beach. Explore the 250 acres of woodland, footpaths and small lakes at Tehidy Country Park. Beach 1½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    What a fantastic place to stay. Can't say enough good things about the accommodation and location. The owners are really hands on and couldn't make us feel more welcome ..even allowed us to check in earlier as cottage ready after cleaning. Everything you could possibly need plus more. Instantly felt like a home from home. Picnic benches in courtyard.. indoor games room complete with pool table books and indoor/outdoor games .. lawned area for kickaround..perfect for kids of all ages and extra special attention to detail that you dont see often. Ten minutes from beach by car .. such an amazing place and we've travelled abroad extensively but have never felt more relaxed on holiday.. avoided all the airport queues and appreciated a proper old fashioned staycation ..definitely be visiting again.. big thankyou to Nicky and Fergus for making our visit so special!! If we could give 11 out of 10 we would!
