Porthgwarra Cove Café

Porthgwarra Cove Cafe is located right in the heart of the cove and is a great spot to stop when walking the South West Coast Path. The cafe is open from Sunday 16th February from 9am - 3pm.

The café serves a selection of refreshments including fresh pasties, Cornish cream teas, sandwishes, ice cream, cold drinks, coffee and tea, daily delicious cakes and more.

Porthgwarra Cove has been mentioned by Aidan Turner (star of Poldark) in several interviews, as it stayed open during an all-night filming session, serving pasties to the crew and stars of the show. Porthgwarra was also the location of the now-famous ‘swimming scene’.

There is a beautiful garden and ample parking (pay and display ticket can be bought in the café). It’s ideally situated for walkers due to its location on the South West Coastal Path. Alternatively, skip the walk and enjoy the treats whilst watching the waves roll by the cove. The area is also a popular spot with bird watchers, and every day the wildlife and birds that have been spied in the area are noted on the café chalkboard.

The Café is an important hub for St Aubyn Estates Holidays guests. Porthgwarra Cafe Supervisor, Ashleigh, can be found at the café on most days. The team look forward to welcoming you to the café, where there is always a complimentary coffee or tea offered to our guests upon arrival.

“The team at Porthgwarra work hard so it remains one of the most beautiful places to visits. You can hear other visitors to Porthgwarra say how lovely it is there. We are pleased to stay at Porthgwarra and thank the team for keeping it unspoilt and beautiful.”
