Mawgan Porth

Beachside Retreat

This relaxed family home, on the North Coast of Cornwall, has a wrap around garden that creates privacy while making the most of its seaside location. Huge changes of level gave an opportunity for a large feature wall of locally quarried stone. A sweeping hedge of Quercus Ilex adds drama and energy to the rear garden and a series of terraced borders planted with a wide range of South African perennials brings summer colour to the terrace and outdoor kitchen area.
