  • "A perfect penthouse apartment in a great part of Newquay."

    With fantastic views of the harbour and Newquay bay it really is the perfect location for a holiday in Newquay. We walked to multiple beaches, shops, and restaurants/bars while happily leaving the car safe in the car park all week. The interior is also great with an open plan kitchen, dining living area with 2 bedrooms (1 en-suite) and a lovely bathroom. The only thing to note, mind your head if you’re over 6ft!

  • "The apartment is in a great location and has amazing views of the harbour."

    It is well appointed and clean and the owners provided extra special touches like fresh flowers, milk on arrival, and a Cornish cream tea. The location is idea for the town in that it is close enough to reach all amenities but far enough out so that it is not affected by any noise from the busier parts of Newquay. Being the ‘penthouse’ the flat is up several flights of stairs and in some parts of the flat headspace is restricted. It is also very exposed to the weather and on one particular night (in a heavy storm) there was a lot of noise from the wind across the roof, and from the various extractor systems. This is probably a consequence of the flats location but may be a consideration for some particularly in the wither months. Although the flat has an allocated space, this was on one occasion used by another vehicle when we returned to the apartment causing us to park elsewhere. The entrance to the parking is also extremely steep and on more than one occasion I damaged the bottom of my car getting out onto the road. Speaking to neighbours, this is apparently a common problem and so we would have appreciated some warning about this rather than suffering from the damage that had been caused. Overall despite the niggles we had a great holiday; and would come back (with a different car). The property is full of character and helped make our holiday special.

    Dear Nick, Thank you for pointing out the noise of the extractor fan. It has a back-draft shutter, but clearly it is not Cornwall proof and we’re having it taken out. We know there can be scraping sounds on longer wheel-based cars, or cars with very low clearance. We have a VWGolf Estate and we hear scraping sounds when we enter the drive but not on the way out. Shorter models don’t seem to experience this. In our case it sounds a lot worse than it is, it just leaves a few cosmetic scratches on the plastic cover undertray. We haven’t heard of anyone suffering anything other than minor cosmetic scratches in this way. However, we understand how it can be a worrying experience, and we will follow your advice and mention it in the description. Best wishes, Peter & Tri Property Owner

  • "Great touch with the Cornish tea things left in the fridge."

    Would have been handy to have recommendations for local restaurants as we found tricky to book once there, we should have been better prepared. We went to the Harbour restaurant on our last day and would recommend that, also the activity centre very good and great for teens. Particularly like the windows and how they opened out and all views to die for - very relaxing thank you

    Dear Lisa, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We hope you will come back to stay with us in future. Best wishes, Peter & Tri Property Owner

  • "The listing needs to be corrected to remove the xbox 360 as the apartment does not have that available, which meant my kids were disappointed."

    The double bed is very very soft. I know that is a personal preference but I would ask the owners to consider a firmer bed if and when they replace the mattress. Otherwise, wonderful apratment with quite stunning views

    Dear Daniel, We’re very sorry we didn’t notice this earlier and it was a disappointment for your kids. When we bought the property we sent Sykes an updated description that didn’t include the xbox, but it seems some of the previous details remained in place. We can’t update the descriptions ourselves, but we know now to double check they have been entered correctly. Thank you for your feedback about the mattress, we have replaced it with a brand new firmer model from John Lewis. Best wishes, Peter & Tri Property Owner

The property

8 Pentowan overlooks the pristine local Towan beach as well as Towan Harbour with its fishing boats, leisure boats and harbour side restaurant.

The 180 degree ocean views are breathtaking and take in the North Cornwall coastline from the Newquay beaches to Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and the Bedruthan Steps.

The many changing textures and colours of the ocean, sky and horizon dominate and are reflected in this beautiful top floor apartment.

Whether you are planning an active family beach holiday, a romantic getaway for two, a walking holiday along the coastal path, or a chance to surf Britain’s most famous beaches, this is the perfect location.

Pentowan House is an historic Victorian House with a private gated entrance and parking in the centre of Newquay.

It is moments from the beaches, harbour and town centre, yet this former gentleman’s residence is quietly tucked away in a secluded landscaped setting. Accessed by two flights of stairs, this top floor apartment is wonderfully bright, spacious and airy.

Prepare the local catch in our well-equipped kitchen with Neff oven and hob.

Relax around the dining table or curl up on the loaf sofas.

Grab a book and put your feet up in the reading nook, where you can watch the surfers and sailing boats, spot the harbour seals, see the fishermen come home and the sun go down.

At the end of the day, take a long soak in the spacious bathroom with softened marble flooring, freestanding bath and antique brass heated towel rail. You can retire to the master bedroom with sea views, a king-size bed, seagrass flooring, cosy rugs, a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower, heated towel rail and basin. Or catch up with family and friends in the twin bedroom with seagrass flooring, cosy rugs and a quirky lean-in wardrobe. The beautiful seaside town of Newquay has plenty to offer and is right on your doorstep, including the world famous Fistral Beach, the Coastal Path just minutes away, golf, surf, the seaside, tea shops, pubs, bars and many restaurants. The owners of 8 Pentowan have taken ownership of this enchanting apartment with the aim of providing an impressive space with quality fixtures and fittings, from the amply-equipped kitchen to the designer lamps and rugs throughout the property.

For a new favourite staycation destination you can return to year after year, choose 8 Pentowen.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
