Inside Somewhere Only We Know

Somewhere Only We Know is entered across a small private sunny paved patio area and into a large long hallway with an abundance of cloakroom and mirrored cupboard space. On into the Kitchen/Lounge/dining area which has a relaxed beachy theme you will find a big space perfect for everyone to casually enjoy family social time.

This space has a well-equipped kitchen, with double ovens and an integral fridge and separate freezer. The space has a large modern log burner, an L-Shaped sofa and a 65” wall mounted smart TV. Sliding doors from the dining end of the room open onto a small patio with a Bistro style table and chairs for a peaceful morning coffee. Off this room is a utility area with washing machine, tumble dryer and a w/c with basin.

Lusty Glaze Beach At Newquay In Cornwall, Uk

Newquay is ‘open all year’. These days the town manages to be both trendy and yet remains a great family resort — all wrapped up in the most fantastic Atlantic coastal scenery. Just a few minutes walk away from this property you will find the appealing Trenance area of Newquay which has a bowling club, the Heron Tennis Centre — open to the public to pay and play, and offers adults and children’s holiday coaching groups or private lessons. It also has a very pleasant café. Close to this is the newly re-furbished Little Western Railway and play park. You can also hire pedalos on the lake. The Zoo and Waterworld are also in this area. The gardens are well kept with lots of seasonal flowers, a lovely place to walk, especially under the railway viaduct.

Tolcarne Beach is a short walk the other direction, with the popular Colonial Bar serving food and drinks all day. This is an idyllic retreat for watching the sunset across Newquay Bay with a cocktail before strolling back home. The railway station and buzzing town centre is a 10 minute walk away. Wetsuit and surfboard hire are available on most beaches with some offering surf lessons and wider watersports activities. World famous Fistral Beach should take you a pleasant 20 minute walk where you will find Rick Steins Fish & Chips, the now Michelin starred Fish House restaurant, the Fistral Beach Bar and much more! Whether you choose to stroll to the Street Food on the beach at the harbour or take a fishing boat trip and catch your own the choices on offer will be plenty. Newquay is fast becoming a ‘foodie’ destination.

Notes: This property backs on to three small residential apartments. The apartments and holiday home share the same driveway, but face in opposite directions. You have dedicated private parking space for up to four cars, and all facilities are private and not shared. You have no access to garage that is also shown in some photos.

Things we love …

We love the superb location of Somewhere Only We Know for a Newquay-based family beach holiday. You can park up and simply forget the car for week, and not do the same thing twice. In the summer that might mean doing all the Newquay things, ranging from beach fun and watersports to fine dining, before heading back to your Summer House Bar for a garden evening.

In cooler times of year fire up the log burners after winter storm watching and snuggle down in one of the very generous lounge areas with cinema-style TV’s. Get to know Somewhere Only We Know before anyone else does!
