About this location

The Cornwall region

Newquay is ideally located for those who wish to explore Cornwall's broad and varied places of interest. Ranging from fantastic sandy beaches to stunning sub tropical historical gardens and picturesque working harbours. Newquay is the perfect base from which to explore both north and south coast. The Eden Project is about a 20 minute drive and even a trip to Lands End is under an hour away. Padstow is about a 15 mile drive north up the beautiful Atlantic coast road or St Agnes and Perranporth are a similar distance in the opposite direction.

Cornwall has a large number of National Trust properties and English Heritage attractions. Lanhydrock House near Bodmin is a facinating time capsule, St Michael's Mount boasts an incredable location which is unique to this country and the castles of St Mawes and Pendennis are a must.

Newquay Airport offers a daily service in a small aircraft down the north coast to the stunning Isles of Scilly. The views from the journey are incredible as you fly over St Ives Habour, Lands End and beyond. This is a trip that we would recommend. Alternatively why not take the open top bus trip from St Ives to Lands End along the stunning coast road.


Quay House is located on the shore of the beautiful Gannel Estuary. The Gannel is popular for walking, horse riding and even canoeing. At low tide it is possible to walk to Crantock Beach or Pentire Headland. Fistral Beach, the legendary home of British surfing, is about a 10 minute walk from the house and the town and harbour takes just a little longer.

The house is located in a very quiet area of Newquay, yet is within easy access of the town's shops, bars and restaurants. Family attractions including Newquay Zoo, the Tennis Centre and Water World Fun Pool are within easy walking distance, or if golf is of interest then Newquay's popular links golf course is close at hand.

For those who enjoy great food in stunning locations Jamie Oliver's restaurant, 15, is a few miles north at Watergate Bay, Rick Stein's seafood restaurant is in Padstow or our favourate, The Porthminster Cafe in St Ives!

As well as lots for adults there are a number of children's attractions close by including Dairy Land Farm, The Blue Reef Aquaririum, Crealy Adventure Park and Holywell Bay.

"What a fantastic place to stay!"

We went to Newquay as a large extended family(14) including very young children. The house was immaculate and we could not have asked for anything more, although the cream tea from the owners was a very good way to start the holiday.
It is only a short walk to the town centre and the beaches.
The setup of the bedrooms was perfect and meant that everyone had there own space and privacy.
We hope very much to return in the future after having a wonderful holiday in Cornwall.

"Highly Recommend!!!"

We were a group of 12 staying over the new year period at Quay House. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a well wished card from the landlord and 2 bottles of bubbles to celebrate bringing in the new year. The house was very spacious and had two very large separate living areas. Kitchen has everything you would need for the large numbers as well. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also comfortable. The house overall is very well appointed and makes for a truly great getaway in a beautiful part of the Cornwall area. I would highly recommend this house for both families and friends looking to see the area. Thanks Philip!
