Famous for its surfing culture, Newquay's premier attraction is the impressive stretch of stunning coastline along which the Cornish resort is positioned. The rugged north Atlantic Coast looks simply stunning from every viewpoint with clean stretches of golden sands merging with remote 'smugglers' coves to create a truly magnificent scene.
Hobart House is a superbly restored period property in Newquay, rumoured to have been a sea captain's house. Now a luxury Newquay holiday cottage, it retains many of its original features, with high ceilings, large bay windows and stripped floorboards. From the living room you can gaze over the dramatic coastline or simply step onto the balcony for some clean, fresh sea air.
The rooms at Hobart House are bright and spacious. Some also benefit from sea views. Newquay's iconic surfing spot, Fistral Beach, a playground for surfers of all ages and abilities, is within a short walk of Hobart House.
The Gannel Estuary is also nearby and offers fantastic walks along the breathtaking Atlantic coast and is ideal for fishing, bird watching, picnicking or simply relaxing. The town beaches of Towan and Tolcarne provide safe bathing on expanses of golden sands and are also a great place if you wish to try out a spot of surfing.
Whilst holidaying in this beautiful part of Cornwall's Atlantic coast, enjoy a round at one of the finest links courses in the South West, Newquay Golf Course (while less serious golfers can enjoy a round of pitch and putt on on the Headland.
For those looking for an adrenaline rush, a visit to the Lusty Glaze Adventure Centre is a must. Activities on offer include rock climbing, abseiling and coasteering. Travel inland and away from the coast to discover attractions for all ages, providing a fun filled day out for all the family amidst picturesque Cornish scenery. Visit the world famous Eden Project, stroll through the Lost Gardens of Heligan, explore the historic county capital Truro or simply journey around the rich tapestry of picturesque villages dotted throughout Cornwall.
You may be enjoying a self-catering holiday, but there is a fine choice of food on offer from Newquay's from beach front cafes to continental style brassieres, providing gastronomic options to suit all occasions and tastes (and an evening off for the cooks!). For a special treat, head a little further afield to one of the exclusive restaurants in the area, such as Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Cornwall, and indulge in some of the finest culinary delights the South West has to offer.
