    Good location for beaches and town centre. Only down side the top outside space is shared with the air B&B in flat above, needs signage as when we came back from the beach the were in our garden outside the apartment using the outside shower.

  • "Myself, husband and dog had a such a great week at Fistral Drift."

    Loved the communication from Jane & Michelle via email & what's app with all the info we needed to access the property and about the surrounding area etc. We parked in the Council car park 5 minutes walk from the property and Jane paid for our weekly Rover permit which was fantastic, permit can be used across other certain car parks but we didn't use our car the whole stay. Garden was lovely, our dog spent most of his time lazing out there & we enjoyed the views across to Fistral Beach from the bench seat! Location was great for us, 10 minute walk to Fistral Beach & coastal path or 10 minutes in the other direction to shops, pubs etc. They have thought of everything in the property, firstly a fabulous welcome pack on arrival which included tea bags, coffee pods, cider, biscuits, chocolate & even dog treats! Also milk in the fridge for us, hand washes, kitchen really well equipped (stayed in many properties where its pretty basic) and the bathroom is lovely with an amazing shower! Honestly they have literally thought of everything at Fistral Drift & I could go on & on so finally will just say I would recommend it to anyone.

    The welcome basket, (Alfie loved the Misfit dog treats) the communication, even a comment of '' No, this is your apartment '' really shows they go all out to give their residents the best experience possible. Hopefully we will stay at Fistral Drift again next year. A big thanks to Jane and Michelle for a wonderful 2 weeks. Graham, June and Alfie.(a very chilled and happy pooch)

    Excellent location. We have stayed in numerous places around Newquay over many years and this is by far the best. The owner made sure we had all information we needed about the cottage, parking and about all aspects of our stay in Newquay. Thank-you. We will be returning again next year !

  • "Jane was absolutely fantastic from keeping us informed about the apartment in that it was ready early if we wanted to check in before the allotted checkin time, also our dog mistook a coaster for a nice looking biscuit and stole it off the table and chomped into it before deciding it wasn’t what she was expecting, Jane was very understanding about this and advised we did not have to pay for replacements, which we were fully expecting to have to if required."

    We will certainly come back hopefully when the weather is a bit warmer later in year.

    Everything was catered for and more. A great location, close to beaches, costal walks and the facilities of Newquay. Highly recommended. Will definitely look to stay again. The only downside, and it’s tiny, is the noise from vehicular and foot traffic which meant that the dog wanted to say “hello” to everyone. Easily resolved with Radio 2 and reassurance. Thank you
