Porthcothan Bay is one of the gems of the North Cornish Coast, tucked away between picturesque Padstow and spectacular Watergate Bay - not far from revered Mawgan Porth either! The bay offers soft white sand, dramatic scenery, a village pub and even a handy beach shop.

The historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow is just three miles distant and offers an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth's Michelin starred No.6, cool seafood bar Prawn On The lawn and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant. The nearest mainline train station, Bodmin Parkway, is approximately 23 miles distant with routes to London Paddington with the nearest airport at Newquay just 6 miles away providing flights to London Gatwick and European destinations.

To find Tamarisk, leave Padstow and follow the B3276 towards Trevone and St Merryn. Follow this road for approximately 2.7 miles. Pass the Cornish Arms pub and continue into the heart of St Merryn. Head straight over the crossroads through St Merryn and continue along the road for approximately 1.8 miles. Head down to the beach and across the bridge. Tamarisk can be found along on the left hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL28 8LW. What3words: essays.lofts.aside
