I am considering coming to Newquay to watch the Surf Competition in November: newquay.co.uk/whats-on-in-newquay/details/57…
However, I don't really want to stay in Newquay, I'm looking for a more relaxed and chilled out vibe - more like St. Ives or something.
I've always done Cornwall via car before, can anyone give me an idea as to whether it would be feasible to stay somewhere else and come in and out via public transport? Obviously St. I'ves is a bit too far- over two hours on the train! but you get the idea.
Also, if anyone's been to that specific event I'd be keen to get a handle on what it's like. Many years ago (we're talking about 15-20) we'd regularly end up being in Newquay in the week of the August surf festival, I get the feeling this event would be much more low key.
