The property

Set back from the busy main road within its own double-fenced garden and with ample off-road parking, is Heliview Cottage.

This traditional, stone-built property sits alongside and is owned by the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, which was the first air ambulance in the UK taking to the skies in 1987.

It is a wonderful spot for aviation enthusiasts to bring their loved ones to explore a fascinating region of Cornwall, with the opportunity to see the helicopters up close and meet the crew.

The interior is very light and bright with modern furnishings and fabulous views from the bedroom windows of Newquay Airport.

Arrive at the front entrance and kick off your muddy hiking boots or sandy flip flops in the porchway before relaxing into your evening and getting some much-needed rest.

Make the most of your down time with your family and friends by gathering around the dining table for a homemade meal cooked up in the fully appointed kitchen, before unwinding in front of the woodburning stove on a cool wintry evening in the sitting room.

Get competitive over a board game on the coffee table, tune into the TV or simply catch up on the adventures you've had so far.

Feel welcomed into the conservatory one sun-filled morning and enjoy your first coffee of the day as you take in your surroundings.

Climb the staircase to catch your rest at the end of the day in either the double bedroom or the twin, which is a zip/link bed and can be made into a super king-size on request for couples.

The third bedroom rests under the eaves with two Velux windows streaming in plenty of natural light, along with a TV and twin beds, perfect for those travelling with kids.

They can use this space as their private little hide out, where they can sink into the bean bag chairs and get out some books and games to pass a couple of hours.

To the exterior, you have a wonderful enclosed garden enjoying a picnic area and garden furniture on the paved patio, the perfect spot to relax with a chilled drink and watch the occasional arrivals and departures at the nearby airport.

If you can tear yourself away from plane spotting there are plenty of fun things to see and do in the local area, with Newquay hosting fabulous surfing and other watersports, a SEA LIFE centre and zoo.

There are also a number of places to eat and drink, while walking and cycling come in abundance, the perfect way to spend a family holiday.

Choose to explore the St Agnes Heritage Coast and even venture out to the Eden Project to spend a day strolling its beautiful gardens.

Find your escape here at Heliview Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

    It has all the amenities that you could ever need on a holiday and plenty of space. Knowing that some of the proceeds go towards the air ambulance make this property even more special.

About the location


Holywell 6 miles; Perranporth 8.5 miles; Truro 14 miles; Padstow 14 miles.

Newquay is the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a watersports paradise. The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 14 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached within 30 minutes. Picturesque St Ives and the Tate St Ives gallery is under an hour's drive or a train ride away. In fact, because nothing in Cornwall is far from Newquay, it’s the perfect touring base.

Region Information

Note: Please be aware that throughout the year, the trust runs occasional events and open days which can result in increased activity on site.

Note: Whilst the Coronavirus pandemic is ongoing it may be impossible to offer airside visits in order to protect the aircrew.

Note: The hot tub was removed from this property in May 2020.

Note: Essential Construction works, spring and summer 2021, Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust Operating Base.

During 2021, Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust is extending its aircraft hangar to provide new office and training accommodation for the critical care paramedics, helicopter pilots and engineers. This extension of the existing building is required because the clinical and operational team is bigger, with the charity delivering a life saving service 19 hours per day all year round. This construction work is expected to commence in April, and will continue throughout the summer and into the autumn.

The hours of work for the construction site are 0800 to 1700 Monday to Friday. No works take place during evenings or at the weekends.

The construction site is nearby to Heliview cottage, which is right next door to our charity headquarters, and the operating base for the Cornwall Air Ambulance. Viewing Heliview TR84DY on Google Earth, the works will take place at the furthest end of the hangar building, away from the cottage.
The charity expects the first 3 months of works, getting out of the ground and main construction of the structure, to be the time when the works could be disruptive to visitors. Works vehicles, deliveries, and the construction contractors will all be using the main entrance to the head quarters car park, and operating around the site.

If you normally spend your day out and about while you are on holiday, you may not find the proximity of the building site an issue, however if you prefer to spend long relaxing days in the cottage and the garden, from Monday to Friday up to 5pm, you may be disturbed by vehicle and construction noise.

The charity is discounting the normal cost of a holiday at Heliview by £100 per week for all weeks booked in April through to September 2021.
If there is a delay to starting the works, or of the works end earlier than expected, the discount will still be honoured, even if your holiday is unaffected.
