Cubert, a small friendly village with an artisan bakers, local pub and village shop is a treat in itself but a short drive or walk will bring you to Holywell Bay, a beach made famous for its use as a TV set in the TV series ’Poldark’. The famous conical rocks are often used as a backdrop in the series. The beach is a mile of golden sands backed by fantastic dunes, the perfect spot for some surfing or just relaxing. Just a short walk through the garden gate and across the field at the back of the cottage will bring you to the well known local inn, said once to be the haunt of smugglers.
The Eden Project, St Ives, Padstow, Fowey, Truro and many quiet and secluded bays and villages are easily reached as Cubert is centrally located on this dramatic peninsula.
Newquay and Perranporth with plenty of things to see and do, are about 3 miles away in opposite directions and both are great days out. Newquay with its zoo, parks, working harbour, sea fishing, surfing schools and cinema is worth a visit and Perranporth with its sand locked beach bar with live music, makes a great place for a sundowner on the beach.
Candles Cottage with its own off-road parking and close to the village centre is a real gem of a find. The spacious lawned garden is ideal to relax in and overlooks green fields. Golf, horse riding, go karting, cinema, shopping and cycling are all available nearby and a family adventure park, is within walking distance. Beach 1½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

In Beautiful surroundings. A very cozy cottage, ideal for couples and small families. A short driving distance from holywell Bay beach. It sits nicely tucked away making it ideal for those that want peace and quiet. It has a nice little garden with a small patio perfect for sitting in with a glass of wine in the warm summer evenings. It's location is perfect for commuting to most of Cornwalls west coast, with Newquay only few miles away. Buses are quite regular from just around the corner if you don't wish to drive. The cottage itself is well equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable as being at home. Would definitely recommend Candles as a great getaway. Only 1 minor flaw is parking. We arrived in a small car and still found it challenging reversing up the drive way. Overall I give it 10 out of 10 as there are other places to park nearby.
