General

  • Family site a few miles from several good surfing beaches
  • Within easy reach of Falmouth, Newquay, St Ives, Penzance and more
  • Forest walks from the park that take you to the South West Coast Path

Swoop on this one, surfers… Mount Hawke Holiday Bungalows is a small and family-owned site in peaceful Cornwall countryside, about 15 minutes' drive from popular beaches like Portreath and Chapel Port. On the outskirts of Mount Hawke, near St Agnes, it's at the head of an historic mining valley of heathland and woodland, in a wildlife haven for hours' worth of peaceful spotting.

Accommodation is self catering and shared facilities include a games room with table football and ping pong as well as a play area with swings and a slide. Guests are welcome to walk or picnic in Mount Hawke Holiday Bungalows' private fields or woodland whenever they like.

A public footpath running past the site's field leads to cliff and country walks; from this, you can join the north Cornwall section of the 630-mile South West Coast Path.

The site is 500 metres down a private lane from the grocery shops, post office and restaurant and bar of Mount Hawke village, less than 20 minutes' walk away, while in Porthtowan (about half an hour's walk away) there's a pub and a popular beach bar, both of which serve hot fresh food.

    The accommodation was fantastic. Full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, full bathroom & comfortable living / dining room. Very quiet and peaceful surrounded by fields. Close to the coast and a great place to stay!!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing - the only improvement that could be made is the top of the access track needs to be resurfaced but this did not spoil our enjoyment of the holiday or the accommodation.

  • Liked: 

    The location was perfect. Not too many lodges crammed in so wasn’t too busy. Super quiet and walkable in the daytime to Porthtowan.

    Disliked: 

    Main bedroom was a little small. Bed and pillows weren’t very comfortable. Could tell recently refurbished and although nice everything looked and felt like it was done on a budget. We were double booked so had to find accommodation for the last 3 days of our trip.

  • Liked: 

    The bungalow was bigger and more comfortable than I expected. Christine, the landlord was very nice and helpfull. The site is in a lovely location, in the woods, fields and very quiet, that was really great.

    Disliked: 

    The bungalow was very damp and smelt of mold which wasn't so nice. The electric counter has a problem and didn't always register the 1 pound coins we put in, we lost at least 6 pounds in it.

    The cabin was set at the end of a road so no traffic noise it was peaceful. There was 2 fields you can walk your dog in and also trails and tracks to walk.

    Disliked: 

    Road to the site wasn't very good at all in some parts it was more like a track than a road. Also in the cabin we had there was a smell of damp (cabin 3 ).

    We actually stayed at one of the owners rental properties "Barbara Anne's" in Porthtowan a few miles from Mount Hawke. The accommodation was lovely and in a great location, 5 minuets walk from the beach. The accommodation had everything you would need for a short or long break and was nice and clean.

    Lovely clean chalet, really liked the wooded area around, dogs enjoyed their stay with a big field at the back to walk them on. We received a text from the manager telling us the chalet was ready earlier than we expected which was handy, very good value for money, would definitely recommend, Colin Berrisford.

    Everything. The cabin had everything you needed in it. The site is nice and small so no need to worry about crowds of people you can get elsewhere. Was nice to just be able to relax in the evening outside with a bbq. The children could play in the sandpit just outside of the cabins and there was also a little play area. The hosts are really friendly and have great hospitality. Nothing was to much trouble for them and was able to borrow a few things for the stay like a bbq, high chair, travel cot and even a baby carrier for a day out. In a nice area that you could explore on walks. Was nice to know they were only a txt away if needed anything. We would definitely stay again as a family or even just as a couple for a chilled out weekend.

Local attractions

Take woodland walks from the site to join up with the the South West Coast Path at Chapel Porth Beach or award-winning Porthtowan beach, both around 15 minutes' drive away. From Porthtowan, take the three-and-a half-mile circular route around the town, taking in the blood-red cliffs (said to be stained with a giant's blood), the multi-coloured caves and arch on the beach at Chapel Porth and the abandoned mines at Chapel Combe.

For further walks, the popular resort of St Agnes and the adjacent golden sandy beach at Trevaunance Cove are a good hour's hike away (or about 10 minutes in the car), and it's about 20 minutes to Perranporth's golf course and three-mile beach.

The wilder north Cornwall section of the South West Coast Path, which stretches across Porthtowan, Chapel Porth, St Agnes Beacon and Trevaunance Cove, has some of the most spectacular cliff scenery in the country and is home to various species of birdlife, such as peregrine falcons, marsh harriers and short-eared owls. Head to the RSPB reserve at Hayle Estuary to see a wealth of wading birds, like oystercatchers, redshanks and herring gulls joined by the occasional rare interloper from North America.

It's around a 50-minute trip to the indoor rain forest biospheres of the Eden Project and the restored Lost Gardens of Heligan. A bit further afield, it's about an hour to Land's End, and if you want to go even further west, day trips to the Scilly Isles are very doable from Penzance, 45 minutes from the site.
