About this location

The Cornwall region

Cornwall is a peninsula situated at the south-western most tip of Britain, opposite the peninsula of Brittany in France. It forms part of the 'Atlantic Arc' of six Celtic countries - Brittany, Cornwall, Wales, Isle of Man, Eire and Scotland. Its landscape bears a greater resemblance to that of its Celtic neighbours than to the rolling hills of Devon and the rest of England.The climate is mild due to the warming effects of the Gulf Stream - indeed palm trees are relatively common in the gardens of south and west Cornwall and sub-tropical plants can be seen growing quite happily at the Abbey Gardens of the Scillonian island of Tresco. The moderating influence of the sea also means that Cornish winters are rarely severe and hot summer days are often cooled by gentle sea breezes.Famed for its beaches and rugged coastline, stretching for almost 300 miles, Cornwall has an area of about 3,550 sq. km. (1,370 sq. miles) of which over 25% (958 sq. km.) are designated as areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.For the keen and adventurous who enjot walking, there is the famous coastal which stretches an outstanding 480 km, hosting some of the most breathtaking views in the UK. For the keen cyclists there is the famous Camel trail which runs along the river Camel from Padstow to Wadebridge.

Gannel Estuary

Newquay has so much to offer, the town, the eleven beaches, and of course a full range of water sports. Newquay provides its visitors with a vast variety of excitement , entertainment and choices; explore the cliff tops, walks along one of the eleven superb beaches or visit some of the many attractions in town or close by, such as the Zoo, golf course, Trenance Leisure Park, Waterworld, Sea Life Centre, Tunnels Through Time and plentiful night life. Balloon Festival and Celebrate the1900s week in July. Nearby, Elizabethan Trerice Manor (NT), DairyLand Farm World and Lappa Valley Steam Railway. Fistral Beach is the most famous of Newquay's beaches. Excellent for surfing at low tide, Fistral boasts quick, hollow waves. Host of many an international and national surfing championship, Fistral Beach gets the best of the swell. Nearby on the headland is Towan Beach. Newquay's main beach, Towan Beach is easily accessible and provides kids' attractions in the form of a paddling pool and rock pools. The next beach lying to the west is known locally as Polly Joke. A pretty, sandy cove, Polly Joke can be quieter than its neighbours due to the 10 minute trek on an uneven footpath from West Pentire car park. Further west, you'll find Holywell Bay. Here you'll find beautiful sand dunes and on a good day you might be able to spot a dolphin or two. Nearby, there's more family entertainment at the Holywell Bay Fun Park (free entry) and Penhale Adventure Centre (coasteering, climbing, sailing, kitesurfing). There's not much organised entertainment at Crantock Beach but with its sheltering sand dunes makes a great place for a quiet, relaxing picnic.

"Nice place but not worth the money"

Arrived to find a significant number of instructions about the do's and dont's in the property stuck up around the house. Concern was that the property wasn't in a good order when we ar… More

There are Dos and Donts in the property. The dos and donuts refer to where to put the rubbish for collection and how to use the hot tub (for example don't go in the tub with sand on your body). There is no damp downstairs and I can confirm that the guest who wrote this emailed me during the week to say that they were having a great time and that the house was lovely so I have no idea why they decided to write the review that they did.
We spend a considerable amount of money on the property each year to make sure that it is extremely well maintained. We have just changed all the flooring throughout the house to make sure that there are no marks and stains and we employ somebody to paint the house each year. We have cleaners in to clean the property and if there was a problem with how it had been cleaned then we should have been made aware so that we could send the cleaners back around. We have never received a complaint about our cleaners.
With regards to the pricing the property is priced in accordance with other properties that sleep the same amount of people and are in such a lovely location. It is not fair to compare the price of the house to one in France!
Thanks for reading this.
