The Details


Where is it?

Please note By the Sea is a family home and only accepts bookings with a maximum of six adults and four children. It is not suitable for large celebratory events.

By the Sea is an impressive detached house, tucked away on a serene clifftop corner just moments from the main strip of town and beaches. This house is designed as a family house and invites adults and children to indulge in the five star experience. The house has panoramic views across the bay, harbour, and mile upon mile of stunning coastline that runs all the way up to Trevose Head in the distance - these views really must be seen to be believed.

A beach per day during your stay? This can be easily achieved in Newquay, with its 15 bays in and around the lively surfer's town. Popular hotspots include the adrenalin junkie's favourites of Fistral and Watergate, or more peaceful Lusty Glaze and Porth for family ambles. Stroll along the sandy basin of the River Gannel at low tide all the way to Crantock Beach and its striking sand dunes, or find a new perspective to catch the ruby sunset up on the headland. The stretch of cliff path surrounding the town offers long rambles or short jaunts, where you can watch gulls swoop towards the waves.

Take the plunge with the town's variety of water activities, lessons and equipment hire. Feel the stroke of your paddle glide through glassy water as you kayak or stand-up paddleboard around the bay, or grab a board when sea foam is flying and take to the crashing surf. If you don't fancy getting wet, gaze back at the shoreline from one of the boat trips that run daily from the harbour in peak season. A day of activity might leave you peckish- crispy battered fish sizzles from grill to plate down at the harbour, and coffee and cocktails go down a treat in high street favourites and independent pop-ups along the town's main strip.

Newquay International Airport provides easy links to London and numerous other major cities of the UK as well as many destinations around Europe.
