“Great accomodation for a getaway with friends but a little slippy for four legged friends”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I visited The Beach House in Newquay at the end of September for a week away with friends and was not disappointed.

The house is situated in a great location within about a 10 minute walk to Fistral Beach or 15 minute walk to the town centre and has a pretty good view out towards the bay so that you can enjoy the lovely sunsets from the balcony with a bbq on an evening. It is also well equipped with a decent sized kitchen and dining area and luxurious living area with wide screen tv and huge sofa.

The two double bedrooms are a good size and furnished fairly minimalistically, but the beds are more than comfy enough. The bunk room is a little small, but still ideal for kids or smaller proportioned individuals to use!

As for keeping clean; the shower room is roomy and pretty luxurious, but the en-suite connected to the main bedroom is not quite as good - the jacuzzi bath is a little too noisy to relax if you switch it on and I felt the window could do with either a blind or some frosted glass as you can see straight out into the graveyard next door where people walk their dogs... so you could be getting ready for a bath and end up getting a bit of a shock (or giving someone else a bit of a shock!)

The only other negative points were:

- The state of the balcony - some of the furniture and also the bit around the edge are a little wobbly

-The lack of parking - you definitely can't fit two cars out front unless they are smart cars and it is a busy area so you kind of have to fight for on the road parking (luckily I found a place down by the Spar shop)

- Dog friendlyness - please note that all the flooring in this house is wooden, and that the staircase between the bedrooms and the upstairs living area is an open backed spiral staircase, so it can be a little tricky for your four legged friends to navigate; as we found out with my friend's border collie who slipped all over the place.
Fortunately we had an ingenious idea which prevented any major disasters on the stairs... we brought a few bathmats and cut those up and stuck them down to help the dogs grip.

All in all a brilliant week away in a lovely house and would definitely use the Beach House again if I return to Newquay

“Good for surfing, but...”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We booked this house expecting it to be pretty good quality, and in a very good location. The price reflected that.
But we were surprised by the view (check google satellite of location), and disappointed by the general setting. It is in a pretty good place for surfing, but the walk to the beach is nearer 10 minutes than 5, and the parking space is just big enough for one average car. If you have a second car (as we did), you have to fight for a space on a road anywhere nearby. We had no knowledge of Newquay, so perhaps seasoned surfers will know how crammed in the houses are.
The ensuite has a bath with a noisy pump, not a jacuzzi. The one shower is good, and the outside shower and board storage area are what makes it good for surfing. The luxury kitchen is not, so In our opinion the house is overpriced.

Lovely spotless apartment with everything you could need. Fantastic views, lovely décor, easy access, great location. We settled in quickly and felt very much at home. It was a great base for us to explore Cornwall and very much look forward to staying again in future.
