Think Newquay and you probably think sun, sand and surfers. While it's true that this part of Cornwall does boast some of the best beaches in the region and there is a rock-solid surfing community at play in the summer, there's plenty more to Newquay than hanging ten. However, if surfing is your thing, book one of our nearby Newquay Cottages and you could be catching waves all week long or watching the professionals doing their thing during the annual Boardmasters competition – complete with live music!
Although Newquay is famous for its surf-centric attractions, there's plenty more to see and do, whether you're travelling with kids or have managed to sneak away with your better half. Book one of our Newquay Cottages and you'll find yourself within easy distance of some superb natural wonders, such as the Gannel Estuary, excellent shopping and the many sites that contribute to Cornwall's part in the Arthurian legends.
Is Newquay best for Families or Couples?
The short answer is - “both”. If you've booked one of our holiday cottages in Newquay for your family, you might find that you need a few aces up your sleeve in terms of days out. If the beaches aren't what gets your kids fired up, you can always nip down to the world-famous Eden Project and get back to nature. For the daredevils in the party, there's even the opportunity to zipwire across the whole complex! Flambards Village is an excellent day out, packed with rides, slides and exhibits, while Newquay Zoo is the award-winning home to over 130 different species of animal.
We offer a good range of holiday cottages in Newquay that are ideal for couples looking for a bit of peace and tranquillity. While you're there, a visit to St Nectans Glen Waterfall in Tintagel ought to be on the cards. As far as romance goes, it ticks all the right boxes - ivy-entwined trees, a glittering river and a wonderful waterfall. St Michael's Mount is another spectacular location - while it's possible to get there by boat, wait until the tide goes out and a path is revealed in the sea bed – a path that was once trod by a legendary giant.
Whatever you're looking for in your holiday, Newquay has something to offer.
