It has 2 bedrooms so perfect for families, groups of friends or even couples who like to have space.

You are a stone’s throw away from one of Newquay’s many beaches but you are not in the town centre so it is ideal for a family get away.

Looe is located more towards the East of Cornwall. The world-famous Eden project is only 12 miles away and Plymouth pavilions are only 13 miles away. You can have the best of both worlds and enjoy a quiet coastal break but also have some great attractions close by. I recommend this apartment for couples who want a nice chilled break where they have lots to do on their doorstep. Looe also offers many music and food festivals throughout the year.

It will give you something special in a stunning Cornish village which offers some of the best food and drink in Cornwall. You have probably heard that Rick Stein has a restaurant, a takeaway and a shop here but you can also sign up for some cooking classes from the Rick Stein company. There is also Paul Ainsworth’s Michelin starred No.6 restaurant so you are not going to go hungry in Padstow. Of course though if you just want a delicious Cornish pastry then you can just grab one of these from the many Cornish Bakeries in the town too.

The apartment itself is stylishly decorated to a high standard. It offers some great facilities such as a restaurant and bar on site. You can also hire bikes or cars at the site. Brilliantly located if hiking or riding is what you are after. The area also offers water activities such as fishing and speed boat rides. If you are feeling delicate from too much Cornish cider the night before why not just lie on one of the beaches in the area and relax.
