Excellent cottage, very cosy and with everything you could need. Location is great, two minutes to Porth Beach, fifteen minutes walk into Newquay and also near to the coastal paths. Lovely welcome pack - including scones, jam and cream! Has off road parking and easy to drive to.

The location of the cottage is excellent and it's a great base for getting around. Right on the beach and within walking distance to Newquay town centre. Some of it is looking a bit tired and worn now but everything worked well. The bed is extremely comfortable but the sofa not so much.
