The apartment has everything needed for the perfect holiday. Recently redecorated to a very high standard, it has all top quality equipment including a fabulous telescope to scan the amazing Cornish coastline. Having secure underground car parking (plenty of room for our Discovery) was a real bonus and a must in Newquay. It is so easy and quick to walk into town and to the beaches and even better to get back to 22 to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views! Caroline the owner has thought of everything, even the luxury of Cornish Cream Tea awaiting us on arrival. She answered all my numerous questions promptly and made lots of recommendations, so that we could enjoy our holiday to the max. We will certainly stay here, when we next visit Newquay, as I said before 22 Horizons is perfect!

Our visit was short but very sweet! We will most definitely be back! Thank you Katrina and Arthur!

Perfect if you want peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings. There are a lot of sandy beaches nearby so the dogs were very happy too. The owners were particularly pleasant and helpful.
