Mawgan Porth in early March is magnificent. We had a mixture of sun, rain and wind which all added to the atmosphere. Mawgan Porth makes a great location to explore the delights of Cornwall. Boskel was a great base, warm and welcoming after a days walking.

We visited the cottage on a trip to Cornwall for a friends wedding,we stayed for a week, our party included four adults, two dogs and one baby and the cottage suited us perfectly. The booking process was easy and the communication with the owners was regular and friendly before we arrived, including some traffic cheats the week before our booking!... more
