The Pickle Pot (UKC2209) is next to The Jam Store (ref UKC874) and these two single storey apartments are adjacent to the owner’s home. They are named after the owner’s artisan cottage industry making award winning marmalades, pickles and jams. The owner even offers the opportunity for jam making classes, so you can take home your own jam or marmalade.

Mawgan Porth is situated between Newquay and Padstow, both of which offer a diverse range of activities. Padstow is easily reached either by the coastal road, which dips in to secluded coves, or by the coastal path; where fine dining, fishing, boat trips and cycling along the Camel Trail can all be enjoyed in this quaint fishing village. Famous for its surfing beaches, just 3 miles away, Newquay offers an array of attractions including a zoo and sports centres. At Watergate Bay, 3 miles along the road or coastal path, there is a beach café and an extreme sports academy offering kite surfing, windsurfing and much more.

The properties are ideally situated for visiting the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Bodmin Moor. Newquay airport is just minutes’ away, so why not fly in and leave the car at home, or perhaps enjoy a flying lesson and take a bird’s eye view of the stunning coastline? Beach 300 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 4 guests.

“Had the most amazing week at the Pickle Pot. The owner , a lovely gentleman who gave us a very warm welcome . The welcome pack was the best ever. Everything you needed & even some of his own made jam & relishes. The cottage was very spacious & clean. Everything you needed for the perfect holiday. Gardens beautiful. A very relaxing , restful time was had. The beach nearby . A walk down the hill was beautiful. Nearby pub Merrymoor served great food . We ate there lots. Never disappointed. The Bedruthan Hotel 5 mins down the road. Great for evening drinks & to watch the sunset. Can also recommend the open top bus which goes to Padstow Newquay , stopping at various places. A must to avoid the traffic parking. Thanks . It has been fantastic. Lots of very special memories made. We will be back Denise & Shaun Harris & Alfie the Cockerpoo ( Leeds )”

“It was such a treat after a long and stressful journey to arrive at the Pickle Pot to find the fridge filled with goodies. A very hospitable host, comfortable accommodation and a great location. Our only disappointment was that due to staff shortages, most of the local restaurants were not open or were only open to hotel residents.”
