The Area

What we love about the area...

Little Forge is located in a peaceful rural location, surrounded by miles of open countryside, and yet located only 15 minutes drive from the fantastic surfing and family friendly beaches to be found on the north coast. The beautiful beach at Mawgan Porth is a 10 minute drive away, and is sheltered by high cliffs to each side and at low tide there is ample sand for everyone, even on the busiest of days. For a relaxing drink and lovely food, the Merrymoor Inn is a situated close by.

The property is also located approximately 15 minutes minutes drive from Watergate Bay which has over two miles of golden sand at low tide, stretching towards Newquay, and out to sea enormous waves come in from the Atlantic providing a spectacular sight and a popular surfing and kitesurfing spot.

Fistral Beach is one of the world’s top surfing destinations, backed by high cliffs and sand dunes, making it a playground for hundreds of enthusiasts who flock to the beach to get a fix of the big waves. All the big UK surf competitions take place here including the Famous Night Surf, Boardmasters Surf Championships and National Surf Championships, so be sure to check your diary to see what’s on.

For a traditional Cornish Cream Tea, try St. Mawgan Tea Room, which is a ten minute walk away, or try Scott & Babs for a tasty pizza or an evening drink (you will need to book early and in advance). For a hearty sandwich, try Hawkeye’s Cafe.

Padstow has become one of the UK’s premier destinations for foodies, and it’s easy to see why. You have to try Rick Steins Café, with its ever-changing menu of seasonal fish. For a hearty breakfast, why not try Ben’s Crib Box Café or if you fancy somewhere different, Bin Two on the South Quay is the perfect place to watch the world go by, and it’s dog friendly too. If Italian is your cuisine of choice, Embers Wood Fired Pizza in Market Place could be the place to visit. Other restaurants worth trying include Green’s Of Padstow, Rafferty’s Café & Wine Bar and Prawn on the Lawn.

The South West Coastal Path offers over 630 miles of stunning scenery, but you don’t have to walk it all! There are many challenging golf courses within reasonable driving distance too, including Newquay Golf Club, St. Enodoc Golf Club and the courses at Holywell Bay.
