Relax with a family beach retreat in a seaside Newquay lodge

Newquay is a popular seaside town and one of the best places for dog-friendly holidays in Cornwall. It's known for its beautiful beaches, tropical gardens and vibrant wildlife facilities like the Blue Reef Aquarium and the Newquay Zoo. Fortunately, there are many destinations that allow dogs, such as Crantock Beach, which has an array of rock pools and steep dunes, Great Western Beach and Holywell Bay Beach. The famous shores of Fistral Beach and Harbour Beach also allow dogs all year.

Things to do

Places to go near Newquay holiday cottages

There is actually another side to Newquay, away from the beaches and the surf. You can discover it as you stroll the coastal walks and delve into the Blue Reef Aquarium. That family-friendly attraction is ready to wow, with visions of 8-armed octopuses, reef sharks and multicoloured corals, all viewed from a series of underwater walk-through tunnels. Then there's Newquay Zoo, a place to see creatures who've towelled off and live on dry land – think lions and sloths, armadillos and striped zebras.

Activities

What to do near Newquay holiday homes

When the summer hits and the longboards are dotting Fistral Beach, surfers flock to Newquay. Groups of novice riders pepper the sands, practicing their pop-up, while seasoned surfers rule the swells as they roll in off the Atlantic. You can find surf schools and private surf tutors all over the place, not to mention plenty of salt-washed surf shacks for that compulsory post-ride sundowner. Get out there, hit the waves and see what Newquay holiday rentals on the beach are all about…

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Newquay holiday homes

The spring wakes Newquay from its winter slumber. The storms and lashing rains of December, January and February fizzle out and the only people who look disappointed are the hardcore surfers who'll have to wait another season for the roaring Atlantic swells to return. No matter, because the sun starts to shine in May and Newquay holiday rentals fill up with families and backpackers and first-time wave riders. They don't really empty again until September or October, when the autumn gets cold and the bad weather creeps back in.
