Our guide to holiday cottages in Watergate Bay & Mawgan Porth
Did you know...Jamie Oliver founded Fifteen Cornwall in Watergate Bay?
Located just afew miles from Newquay, Watergate Bay’s impressive surf from the Atlantic Ocean and lengthy sandy beach make it a favourite for both activity and family holidays.
Watergate Bay entered the public eye in 2002 when Jamie Oliver chose it as the setting for his restaurant, Fifteen Cornwall. Created as a project to offer opportunities to youths who needed a fresh start, the restaurant provides impressive Italian dishes created by the apprentices themselves.
Aside from the more high profile restaurant, Watergate Bay and Mawgan Porth have plenty of locally-sourced choices for the whole family. The Beach Hut beach bar is positioned to overlook Watergate Bay, and is a great choice for informal meals and drinks. When it comes to cuisine during Mawgan Porth holidays, options include several friendly inns, most of which offer striking sea views, and a choice of cafes and restaurants for all occasions.
