Step Inside

Space, light and warmth flow throughout the open plan living areas of the ground floor.  From the chic black finish and clean lines of the stylish kitchen, the grey/blue slate flooring throughout to the home from home finishing touches this spacious holiday pad sets the scene for the ultimate in beach style living.  Tanzarra comes from the heart of its Cornish creator with every bolt, banister and beam handcrafted to create a flawless finish.  The first floor offers a serene sanctuary of bedrooms and bathrooms not least the indulgent master bedroom with contemporary ensuite bathroom and uninterrupted views.  The quiet upstairs living space with generous balcony is beautifully serene and decked out in cool blues and linen whites.  Gather together as the sun sets in the bay for the perfect end to a summers day.  Bespoke artwork adorns the whitewashed walls with a surfing theme which evokes the Cornish adventures you can reach from your holiday door, whilst handpicked modern retro furniture compliments the clean spaces.

From your Holiday Door

Worthy of Grand Design status, the imposing clean lines and glass box-like appearance are truly striking.  Tanzarra sits proudly overlooking the sea, cliff, beach and headlands of Mawgan Porth.  Family days are spent on the generous decking area and grassed lawn leading down to the coastal path and steps to the beach.  Check the morning surf from your bed and hit the waves before breakfast. Children will love the sense of freedom and open space as they flit from sandcastles to kite flying to rock pooling.  If it's a long overdue friends catch up then choose to follow the coast path to the much acclaimed Jamie Oliver's Fifteen for a lazy lunch or enjoy the talents of a private chef in-house.  Map your days out from North coast to South, dining and shopping in nearby Padstow, Sailing days from maritime Falmouth, garden explorations with The National Trust or for the thrill seekers in the group try your hand at kitesurfing or even kitebuggying at The Extreme Academy.  Whether for a beach style family holiday, the ultimate friends hideaway or luxury break made for two, Tanzarra offers a unique coastal experience in all seasons.
