Mawgan Porth is a popular seaside village situated on the north coast of Cornwall on the B3276 Padstow - Newquay road approximately 6 miles north of Newquay and 8 miles south west of Padstow. It is a highly regarded coastal location heavily orientated to the tourist trade and also provides a range of local amenities including a convenience store, gift shop, cafes and other amenities.

The site is situated in an elevated position in Mawgan Porth overlooking the village and its extensive sandy beach.
