The apartment is centrally located (albeit at top of a hill) and offers superb views over Newquay and the surrounding bays. We loved the telescope, watching the fishing boats go out first thing in the morning and the ever changing skies. We visited Tintagel (about an hour drive) and walked across the bays when the tide was out exploring the caves and rockpools. The boys hired wetsuits and body boards on nearby Great Western Beach. Plenty of shops and places to eat locally. Had indoor splash pool to ourselves in the early evening. Parking space large. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The open plan kitchen/diner, garden and bi-fold door layout provides a fantastic space for children and adults to relax in and cook/drink/eat/play. The garden affords nice views over the countryside and the road itself is quiet. The location is great, with a small but well stocked grocery store just a couple of minutes away, and also within walking distance or a short drive to national trust beach is the amazing beach at Crantock where we spent much of our time. Chris and Jo provided detailed instructions and were great hosts throughout, particulary nice touch was the cream tea pack on our arrival. One of the best properties we have stayed in having used Owners Direct for many years The Lawries and Groenen's, Wokingham
