  • "Property was fabulous - just as described and was a perfect base for our group for the week."

    Clean, comfortable, warm and plenty of space for 8 adults. Great attention to detail in terms of kitchen utensils etc. Secure garden was much appreciated as our dog is a bit of an escapologist! Parking a little tight but no major problems. Construction works at the One Pentire development were a bit of a noise nuisance but I appreciate there’s nothing you can do about that. Overall hugely impressed with the property.

    The cottage has everything you could need for a great holiday. Very spacious, even for 6 adults & in a nice quiet area. The large garden is a bonus, ideal when bringing the dog & to hang out your wetsuits! The host Nick is great and always on hand if you need anything. Can’t wait to visit again.

  • "It's hard to find fault with the location, parking, amenities, rooms, garden and size of the property."

    We could easily park 2 large kia's in front of the house. We walked to fistral beach with surf boards and body boards in a couple of minutes. The road is quiet and the house was easily enough space for our 2 families consisting of 4 adults, 4 teenagers and an 18 month old. Lots of nice touches such as some welcome bits and bobs, WiFi code and various instructions as well as great communication with the owner beforehand and also a quick text on the evening we arrived just to check all was ok, I would not hesitate on recommending and coming again.

    Hi Steven Thanks for the passive feedback I’m so pleased you enjoyed the house. Hopefully we’ll see you again soon Best wishes Nick Property Owner

    Dogs had a great time on the beaches and running around in the garden, I think the neighbours small dog will be glad the 2 labs have gone now! Beds were so comfortable and we couldn’t ask for anything more! Would def recommend and if we all holiday again together next year wouldn’t hesitate to book again!

  • "Fistral Bay Cottage was the perfect setting for a week's holiday by the coast."

    The cottage was very spacious, comfortable and clean. The garden was a wonderful asset (although the weather meant we didn't enjoy it as much as we'd have liked) and the location is spot on - a few minutes on foot to the beach and about a 15-20 minute walk to Newquay town centre. The off road parking space was very welcome too. The communication and welcome from Nick was perfect and greatly appreciated as were the generous touches - a welcome pack and flowers. Ten out of ten.

  • "The property is amazing, we loved it."

    Only one observation I have is that the lounge could do with additional seating. There are 2 sofas that sit 5 people and one puffet but an additional armchair would have been good especially as the property accommodates 8 people.

    Hi Sarah So pleased you enjoyed the house what a fabulous week you had sunshine all week long hopefully you got plenty of beach time. We haven’t put anymore seating in the lounge as we feel the room can’t take it. Usually a chair from the dinning room works ok but understand what you are saying.

    The little welcome pack left from Nick the owner was a very nice touch. All in all a very nice place would defo book again. Just 1 neg: having a gardener knocking at the door on Monday morning to attend the garden and cut the grass, waking acouple of us up, as we were travelling though sunday night and arrived at 2:30am Monday. Think could have had a message to notify before hand or on the info letter left on the table that gardener could be calling at some point. Think it could have been done on the saturday change over day.

    Well kept garden, lovely decor. Only minor issue was mirrors and glass doors hadn’t been cleaned and the towel quality and size were disappointing for the cost of the stay. Maybe vacuum in between sofa cushions too. We really did enjoy our stay would recommend Porth beach if you have little ones as it’s level and very safe. The area around the cottage is very peaceful but not in walking distance of the town. We would stay again.

  • "We had a lovely stay in this cottage, a welcomed break in these times."

    The cottage is very near to Fistral beach, approx. 10 min walk, although that entrance has lot of steps to the beach with a cafe enroute. For anyone where steps are an issue, you can continue on the sandy path to the other end of the beach (probably 15-20 min walk) where there were some shops & restaurants, as well as the lifeguard station. The location was spot on for us - nothing like a beautiful beach scene to make you rewind!! The cottage was better than expected; very roomy, comfy, plenty of facilities, lovely garden space too. We thought many aspects were well thought out, there was a little utility at the back door with hooks on the wall and an additional washing machine & fridge. We didn't require these but for a large group or those surfing - ideal. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of the town that is renowned as the home of the UK's surf scene, Fistral Bay Cottage can be found just a short walk from Fistral beach, offering quality accommodation for friends or families looking to explore the coastal wonders of north Cornwall.

A homely abode boasting plenty of character, step inside and enter into the sitting room where you can take a seat in one of two spacious sofas with the television on, the perfect place to unwind each evening.

Open up the patio doors and let in the fresh breeze of the coast while your canine companion plays freely; light up the barbecue and take a seat on the decking beneath the sun in the summer months, or in cooler weather the dining room is the perfect place to gather and toast to a wonderful holiday.

The kitchen is modest yet well-equipped with everything you could need to prepare family-favourite meals, including a dishwasher, washing machine and even a tumble dryer in the utility, with plenty of room to hang up your wetsuits after a day of sea splashing.

On the ground floor you will also find one of four bedrooms, a super king room with its own television and en suite shower room, it makes the perfect room for teenagers or couples looking for a quiet escape from the excitement of the group.

Up on the first floor sits a super king-size room with a television and its own en-suite shower room, alongside two twin bedrooms with zip and link beds which can be offered as king and super king respectively on request and a family bathroom, offering a snug spot for each and every member to unwind each evening.

Newquay offers everything you could need to keep all ages and tastes entertained, from the simplicities of delicious eateries and quaint shops to attractions including its zoo home to over 1,000 animals, the sea life centre with over 40 naturally themed habitats home to exotic marine life, a golf course and of course its beautiful beach with a wide variety of watersports, boat trips and stunning walking routes all around.

Venture along the South West Coast Path for unimaginable sunsets and nature like you've never seen, or venture out to discover attractions such as the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, both well-worth visiting while in Cornwall.

In reach of Padstow, St Austell, Truro and beyond, Fistral Bay Cottage is a marvellous base for exploring the South of England.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
