Things To Do in Newquay
Newquay boasts eleven beaches which form a dramatic coastline that can be appreciated on foot. The town has a lively surf culture with many surf schools and hire shops where you can brush up on your surfing skills whilst here.
The harbour is a great place to wander around, take a boat excursion or catch your own fish to enjoy on the barbecue back at the house.
Less than 30 minutes away is the beautiful town of Padstow with its cobbled streets, fisherman’s cottages and a busy harbour.
A firm favourite with foodies, it is home to Rick Stein’s famous restaurants although fish and chips while looking out across the harbour is also a popular choice. While Padstow isn’t regarded as a beach town in itself, the beautiful beaches of St George’s Cove, Hawker’s Cove and Tregirls are fantastic sandy beaches and are less than ten minutes’ walk from the harbour.
The beaches of Rock are also a great option, accessible in just five minutes on the regularly departing ferry.
The Camel Trail, a seventeen-mile cycle route along the former North Cornwall Railway, begins in Padstow and passes through Wadebridge, on to Bodmin and finally Bodmin Moor.
The views along the coastline are spectacular and the trail is suitable for even novice cyclists and younger members of the family. Bicycles are available for hire locally.
It will come as no surprise that the beauty of this part of Cornwall has made it a favourite backdrop for a number of TV series. Port Isaac doubles as the fictional village of Portwenn in the Doc Martin series and visitors can wander through the town, following in Doc Martin’s footsteps around the town’s landmarks.
Alternatively, Poldark fans may recognise the harbour in Charlestown, near St Austell, which is home to Tall Ships and stunning views out to sea. Bodmin Moor, which is more than worth a visit on its own merits, was used to shoot scenes outside Poldark’s cottage and many dramatic horseback escapades.
Littlewood is the perfect choice for families looking to enjoy a relaxing break in a convenient setting and hoping to make the most of the great location this part of the world.
Sleep in the same room as Mick Jagger, the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart or Elton John, amongst other celebrities who have hidden from the cameras here.
Enjoy breakfast on the patio, a barbecue on a summer’s evening or a glass of wine in the hot tub. The beautiful and dramatic coastline is as charming as it is beautiful.
Tickle your taste buds with local seafood platters, a pint in Padstow or take a trip to the Scilly Isles. If you’re looking to work up an appetite, hop on a bike and cycle along the Camel Trail, or simply wander along the beach with your canine friend for good company.
