There activities, destinations and attractions to meet all holiday requirements. The beaches are some of the best in the UK and of course there is the spectacular South West Coast Path and surrounding countryside to enjoy.
The area is home to the famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligon, Trerice, Bocastleand Tintagel are among the many interesting places to visit. A complete variety of visitor attractions to suit all tastes are situated throughout the area.
The Cornish climate is traditionally warmer than elsewhere in the UK and summers seem to last longer, often with plenty of sunshine and winters are mild, making it perfect for coastal walks, water sports or just relaxing on the beach.
There really is something for everyone in Cornwall.
The Newquay / Porth area
Porth is located just outside of Newquay making it close enough to enjoy all of the amenities but remaining a quiet, family friendly area. This also means that the main roads linking you to the rest of Cornwall can be access without having to pass the busy town centre.

We had a great nine day holiday & the apartment (#5) had everything you could wish for a family holiday in Cornwall. The location is ideal as you are virtually on Porth beach which makes it great for children & body boarding. The view from the apartment- morning /evening is fantastic as the apartment is on the top floor..

We really enjoyed our stay over new year in flat 3. The flat was lovely and warm, even when the winds were whistling outside. We were very comfortable, with all facilites you could possibly need. Having a washer/dryer was invaluable with two small kids and meant we didn't arrive home with stacks of washing. Its a lovely spot (nearest end to the beach) to watch all the action - mostly dog walkers and kite flyers out of season. We has some lovely wind-swept walks along the coast and along the beach when the tide was out. We will definitely be back again - summer or winter!

Porth Sands is the ideal location for a holiday. You can be equally relaxed or active as the mood takes you. The apartment was so close to the beach you could enjoy it without the need to get sand in your sandwiches or inbetween your toes! The beach is absolutely perfect for all ages to enjoy & is the easiest to access in the area. The apartment was very comfortable & private, the balcony (apartment 5) giving the most splendid views of the beach. We loved the commercially unspoilt nature of Porth with only a few shops, cafe & pub in walking distance. The local Tapas bar is really worth a visit, the food was scrummy. The apartment was really well thought out & the internet access went down very well with both our teenage daughter & 6 year old son. We had exceptional weather that made it even harder to drag ourselves away from the luxury of the apartment. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone that enjoys sea view holidays & quality accommodation. The house keeper James was extremely friendly & welcoming & had we needed to contact him for anything he was only a few minutes away.
