The apartment is a two minute walk from Fistral Beach, and Newquay’s other four beaches are also within easy reach. The South West Coast Path, which leads up onto Pentire Headland, is right outside, providing spectacular views from the dramatic cliff. A short walk up onto the headland (approx 15-20 mins) is the lovely Lewinnick Lodge pub. The beaches and coastline of North Cornwall, such as nearby Crantock and Polly Joke are stunning.
You are spoilt for choice when deciding on where to eat and drink. There are some fabulous restaurants within easy walking distance of the apartment, to suggest a few:
Lewinnick Lodge is nestled on the Pentire Headland, it has a buzzing atmosphere, fantastic food and unforgettable sunsets.
Rick Stein Fistral is casual and laid back and not only serves Rick’s famous fish & chips, but also Indian take-aways inspired by his travels.
The Stable has breathtaking views over the beach and serves local produce and fine cider.
For an elegant yet rustic menu, visit Paul Harwood’s The Fish House. The menu changes according to seasons and what is available or freshly caught.
Newquay Golf course is right in front of Ocean Gate, it’s a beautiful spot with views over the beach. The course is open to the public.
Fistral Beach is one of the best surfing beaches in Europe, the area is extremely well served with surf schools, surf hire and surf shops. All surfing equipment including wetsuits and boards can be hired at a very reasonable price from Fistral Beach or from the Esplanade Hotel, just a 5 minute walk away.
We have facilities to store your surf boards in the lockable surf store and there are shower and wash down facilities in the secure underground car park plus tubs to rinse out your wet suits.
