A short walk from the beach, facilities for showering after surfing, a beautiful log burner for cosy evenings and well put together and cared for accommodation. The cottage facilities were excellent and Catherine and Will couldn't have been more helpful. Perfect for romantic getaways or a family holiday...we were 2 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for all. The retro board games are a lovely touch and were enjoyed by all ages! The outside decking was a fantastic little sun trap and the garden lovely and sheltered. A beautiful retreat in a stunning part of the world. Would highly recommend it.

Pentire Heights is so well equipped and well placed that it ensured we had a fab time. Spacious and warm with everything provided. Even games for the children and a kitchen which ensured I did no dishes & a washing machine to keep up with the childrens spills. Fabulous views and a lovely walk down to either Fistral Beach or into Newquay. I have regularly visited Newquay over the years and I can highly recommend Pentire Heights to any family groups of all ages. Thanks & we will be back !
