Just half a mile from the large golden sandy beach at Porth and even less to Whipsiderry beach on the coast road just north of Newquay, this is one of a small group of single and two storey cottages with country views. The cottage is also just a couple of miles from the rest of Newquay's surfing beaches including Fistral and Watergate Bay. Watergate Bay is also known for it's kite surfing and is the home of Jamie Oliver’s new Fifteen2 restaurant. It was also the setting for the ITV series Echo Beach. There's a footpath near the cottage to the bay. For those who enjoy a walk it's around a mile.
Cosy Cottage: Chy Byghan is one of a number of cottages converted from stone built barns around a central courtyard. Snuck into one corner, the double glazed front door opens into a small entrance hall with a shower room W.C. with hand basin on one side, and a double bedroom facing the inner courtyard on the opposite side. At the rear of the cottage, a door leads through to a bright living room with a natural decor and colour scheme and two windows looking across the road to fields and the countryside.
There is a seating area with a new sofa bed (with a special matress designed to be good for your back)and a kitchen/diner with a pine table and bench seats and a galley style kitchen area with light coloured fitted units. The cottage floors in the kitchen area and hall are laminated with recently laid carpet elsewhere except the bathroom which has floor tiles. We also installed a new washing machine a couple of years ago.
There's a shared car park at the rear of the group of cottages.
What's nearby: If you want to give the car a rest then jump on a bus. There is a service that runs along the road next to the cottages during the summer months.
Porth beach offers safe bathing and is just a ten minute walk by road, as are a pub, cafes and the coastal footpath. Whipsiderry beach is at the end of the road and takes us about 7 minutes to walk to with a 5 year-old and a nine year-old so we think that's not bad! It's in a cove and has got caves and rock pools to explore and a vast sandy beach when the tide is out and it a good surfing beach which not that many know about! There's a convenience shop in the camp site just a few minutes walk down the road which you can also use. Local hotels in the area welcome non-residents to their restaurants. Golf, horse riding and ten pin bowling are all available nearby.
More about the cottage: The cottage has many features including a microwave, and a travel cot and we've popped in a funky kettle and toaster. Electricity and heating is inclusive. Ideal for a couple but for a value holiday it can sleep up to 4 (2+2 a double bed and a new double sofa bed). The whole cottage has recently been decorated inside and out.
Want to bring your pet? We're happy to accept well behaved dogs and have even been known to let some other types of pet stay. We once had a parrot enjoy a week at the cottage! Like most properties there is a pet fee which is £16 per pet with a maximum of two dogs.
