If you are looking for a party pad it's not the place for you.
The West Country / Cornwall region
The North Cornish coast has now become one of the most exciting holiday destinations in the UK. With its mild climate, abundance of attractions, places to visit and world famous beaches it’s the perfect destination to get away from it all.
Regardless of age or interests North Cornwall, and Newquay in particular, has plenty on offer. Whether you enjoy walking, great views, pretty seaside towns and fishing villages, specialty shops, local history, relaxing on the beach or maybe something a bit more energetic such as surfing and other extreme sports North Cornwall has it all in abundance. A week can be a very short time in Cornwall!
The North Cornwall coastline is truly beautiful with numerous beaches where you can either take up the latest sports craze or simply relax and watch. Be as active (or inactive!) as you like, from surfing, sailing, climbing, abseiling, canoeing, cliff jumping, kite surfing, mountain biking and diving, just about every sport you can imagine is available nearby. There are plenty of activity centres in the area so even if you are a novice but want to try your hand at one or two of these popular activities there is always help at hand.
A golfer? The Newquay course is very close, but there are a host of other courses of all standards nearby - Perranporth, St. Enodoc, Merlin and Trevose are all nearby, or if you want to spoil yourself why not play the monster that is the Jack Nicklaus Course at St. Mellion, about an hour away (and the scene of my only hole-in-one)
Days out - if you can tear yourself away from the immediate vicinity there is a host of things to do and places to see. The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, National Maritime Museum at Falmouth and numerous other gems of gardens and National Trust properties, not to mention Tintagel for the Arthurian legend or Port Isaac for the more recent TV and film set - Doc Martin, Poldark and Saving Grace.
The Newquay area
With it’s breathtaking rugged coastal scenery and seven miles of golden sandy beaches it is easy to see why Newquay, the surfer’s paradise, has traditionally been the most popular holiday destination in Cornwall. Fistral, Harbour, Towan, Gt. Western, Tolcarne, Lusty Glaze, Porth and Watergate Bay beaches are all just a walk away.
The food revolution in Cornwall has clearly helped. Rick Stein’s presence in Padstow re-invented the town and now Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant is doing the same for Watergate bay. Viners with a Michelin star chef and Ripleys Michelin star restaurant at St merryn are very near. Their popularity is well known, yet out of season deals on lunches make it worthwhile trying to get a last minute booking, even a week or two in advance. (The Sunday Lunch at Viners is marvellous)
But it’s not just Jamie and Rick who are good for foodies. Lewinnick Lodge on the Pentire Headland has great food and with a brilliant view. The Lusty Glaze restaurant does great British food with a Mediterannean flavour and is situated above a lovely sandy cove at the north end of Newquay.
In the centre of town Fistral Blu and Chy Bar can be relied on for gourmet food and panoramic sea views. Or why not try a pub meal and sample a Cornish beer in the numerous local bars? The reputation of Sharps and St Austell beers, not to mention a growing number of microbreweries, have been recognised nationally, so why not try them where they hail from?
The town centre provides a wide variety of eateries of all kinds and catering to all budgets. Flounders fish and chip shop on East Street is fantastic
In Newquay itself, The Blue Reef aquarium on Towan Beach is well worth a visit, the Zoo is marvellous, Waterworld aqua park is great for kids and there are activities and events all year round.
