“We had an absolutely wonderful long weekend on the island in the wind and the rain. We came fully prepared and hardly ventured out apart from going for a short but very exciting cliff walk at Bedruthan Steps in a gale. Other than that staying in CJ's lovely house was the best place to be. We had a perfect view of the intrepid surfers coming in on mountainous waves and enjoyed some great meals, good music and excellent films. Slept really well in super comfortable beds despite the howling winds and would love to come back one day if you'd like to visit our house near Granada where the sun always shines! This must be the most exciting place to stay in Cornwall. Thanks so much, and thanks to Nick too - he was the perfect welcoming host. Plym and Tony”
Where is it?
North Cornwall is a beautiful part of the world, with dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches. It can be sunny and stormy, often in the same day. The Atlantic waves can be dramatic. For example, walking distance from the Island is Fistral beach which attracts world class surfers: https://www.boardmasters.com/explore/fistral
Newquay is a lively holiday and surfing town. In the peak summer season it is busy with holidaymakers, with the downside that it can be noisy at night especially at weekends. Out of peak season it is much less busy and quieter. The Island is completely separate and private.
There are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants, entertainment places etc within a few minutes' walk. You can travel to Newquay by car (we have a two car garage), train (the station is walking distance), airplane (Newquay airport is 15-20 minutes by cab, check flybe.com for flights) or coach. You do not need a car to get anywhere in Newquay as everywhere is in walking distance, or taxi if you prefer. If you wanted to explore the rest of the wonderful county of Cornwall you would be advised to rent a car.
