  • "The Lookout was perfect for our break in Newquay."

    The facilities were exactly as detailed on the website. The location was great. Easy to get in and out of by car, yet close enough to walk into the town centre and to the beaches

  • "Lovely apartment."

    Good access to town and Fistral beach. We liked the restaurant recommendations. Having a parking space is fabulous. Decor and appliances appeared brand new. Everything was great. Beds could have been larger. I was surprised no mattress protectors, just sheets. You tubed how to top up pressure in boiler, as one morning we had no heating. My only concern, the handle on washing machine is v stiff and flimsy. It is going to get broken off. Maybe needs some attention.

Stroll along the Gannel estuary towards Pentire lookout point, which offers views towards Crantock and its lovely sandy beach.

Enjoy a round of golf at the spectacular 18-hole golf course, stroll around the idyllic harbour, watching the boats bobbing in the water and try a surfing lesson at the Surf School before heading out into the water and taking on the rolling waves of the Atlantic at any of Newquay's fantastic beaches, which includes Fistral, Great western and Newquay Beach.

Walkers can join the South West Coast Path to explore the stunning coastline and take in some incredible views and attractions, whichever direction you head in.

Venture north towards the Trevose Head Heritage Coast, enjoying the views at the National Trust's Carnewas at Bedruthan Steps, stop for some delicious and fresh fish and chips at Rick Stein's, see the 19th century Trevose Head Lighthouse and visit Tintagel, known for its castle which was the birthplace of King Arthur, as well as the nearby attraction of Merlin's Cave.

Head south to enjoy the glorious beaches of Crantock and Perranporth, as well as the picturesque St. Agnes Heritage Coast towards the popular town of St Ives, known for its arts scene, with the Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth Museum well worth a visit.
