Twelve Steps is just off the coast road leading down to Mawgan Porth in the little adjoining hamlet of Trenance. Located on the north Cornish coast, the beach is a real surfer's paradise. With Atlantic sea views and direct access to the beach via a footpath from the pretty, enclosed garden, Twelve Steps is a detached, contemporary holiday home that provides space for multi-family/extended family vacations.

Patio doors lead out from the open plan living-room, which includes a bespoke fitted kitchen, a wood-burner and comfortable sofas. The large dining-table will prove to be a focal point for all, as there is room for everyone to gather around and enjoy convivial meals and plan the next beach trip together. Four of the bedrooms are downstairs, and the en suite main bedroom has wonderful garden views with the sound of the sea in the background to soothe you to sleep. Upstairs is a further en suite bedroom with a balcony overlooking the countryside, and the second sitting-room, with floor to ceiling windows providing fabulous sea views - ideal for grandparents and also for watching the sun set.

Exploring this breathtaking coastal location is effortless, with lots of exceptional dining out to savour within walking distance, and the ideal family beach at Mawgan Porth on your doorstep. The Merrymoor Inn provides the perfect pub atmosphere, with a beer garden overlooking the beach and Catch Restaurant offers exceptional indoor and outdoor dining. For those that enjoy a walk before eating, we highly recommend the coastal path round the headland to Carnewas Tea Rooms at Bedruthan Steps for a well-earned cream tea or light lunch.

For a day trip out, the Eden Project is also easily accessible or for some high speed fun the St Eval Kart Circuit is less than 10 minutes' drive away.

"Twelve Steps has been our second home since 2006 and we have enjoyed many wonderful days with our children, grandparents and other family members on the beach, walking, sightseeing, go-karting and creating lovely memories."
