A group of 11 of us aged between 23-40 went away to the square house for a friends birthday. We were very pleasantly surprised by how lovely the house was. How easy it was to check in and out with keys etc. The key safe made it very simple for us all to come and go either as a group or individually.

On arrival at the house the instructions on how things worked or where things were we found friendly and easy to follow. The owner Anne popped by to see us the day we arrived and was very welcoming, helpful and friendly.

The house is very large, clean and spacious. Sometimes photos on a website are misleading but the square house really is as lovely as it looks. There was always hot water readily available, no one ever had to wait for a shower! The bath was lovely also (big enough for 2!!) the house has everything you need, dishwasher, washing machine etc. there's even an iPod audio connecter in the living room for your music.

The bedrooms all had comfy beds (except the room with the bunks in) two grown men unfortunately drew the short straw with those beds. Great for kids but not so comfy for adults. The bed linen was lovely and clean and fresh towels in every room provided.

We didn't unfortunately get use of the outside space in the back due to bad weather (early February) however it looked great , with plenty of space. The house has 3-4 parking spaces next to it. The location of the house was perfect. 2 minute walk to a massive sainsburys. 3 minute walk to the beach and local shops and bars.

All 11 of us would highly recommend this house and we would definitely return.

been here 3 times now and the service is still excellent. the house is a great house in the perfect location. Only small point to be said is we had a couple of cold nights and the heating was not on which would have made it a perfect stay as was a tad uncomfortable temperature wise. Thanks Anna and Tim for another good holiday.

I recently stayed at The Square House with a Hen Party, and can not praise this place highly enough. The house itself is stunning, and as mentioned in other reviews feels like a home from home. Anna and Tim were very helpful and friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. It must take a lot of hard work to keep such a lovely property and it really is a credit to them!
Accomodation is value for money if you have a group booking , perfect for Family gathering/hen party etc.
I will not hesitste to recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in newquay, and certainly hope I will get to stay here again myself :)

Thank you for making the weekend so special, it really was outstanding.

“It's the little touches that count!”

I booked the house for a hen weekend as it looked perfect & I was not disappointed. It was everything we wanted, a stones throw away from the bars & shops, but not so close you were disturbed in anyway.

Anna & Tim were great, everything was covered and it really was their little touches that put the icing on the cake. From a delicious marmalade cake waiting for us on arrival to tea, coffee & toilet roll supplies it was great.

The house is beautiful, spacious & yet cosy at the same time. With all the household utensils & appliances on hand it was a home from home for the weekend all at a great price.

I would highly recommend this house either for group trips (hen parties, birthday celebrations etc) to family holidays. Either would enjoy staying here.

Thanks Anna/Tim for making it a perfect stay for us!

“Beautiful house, great location and fab price!”
Reviewed 17 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The house was beautiful and right in the centre of Newquay, everything was in walking distance. The booking was easy and the care and attention received from Anna made it an easy and enjoyable break! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a break in Cornwall!

The Square house was used for a group of 12 attending Newquay for the first time for a weekend..

Its location is perfect for the beach, surfing lessons, the town centre and the bars and restaurants.

All the rooms are stylishly put together. The reception rooms and the kitchen are perfectly equipped for you to stay in without leaving the property as well.

I would say to any group planning a stay in Newquay to consider this option. It sleeps 12 and its great having everyone together in the same place rather than scattered around Newquay.

Although we never got to meet Tim and Anna, they were available for any advice prior, during and after our stay, but have to say, as everything is thought of, it would be a rare occasion you would need them!

If only they supplied the weather as well!

A spotlessly clean, spacious house in a central location in Newquay with car parking, what more could you ask for! The rooms were decorated in a contemporary style- no cheap chintz in this gaff! Two bathrooms and ensuites meant there was no queing at shower time for our large party.Great outside area for a BBQ or lounging around in the sun. The landlords were fab- very helpful re info for local area and nothing was too much trouble. We will definately be booking this holiday home again when we next visit Cornwall
