The Studio is situated close to Holywell bay, near Newquay on the north coast of Cornwall with its lovely beaches, the area is great for walking, cycling or just chilling. It is self contained with a comfortable double bed & a bed settee, it has its own kitchenette & ensuite.

The space

The studio is completely self contained being located above a garage, it is unfortunately not suitable for disabled or infirm guests, being accessed via an external staircase. It is about 1 mile from Holywell bay & Polly joke cove, both of which you can walk to via National trust footpaths. Newquay & Perranporth are about 5 miles away, whilst Truro is around 10 miles away, Newquay airport has regular flights from many parts of the UK & is about 7 miles away. The studio is very comfortable (we lived in it for 2 years whilst rebuilding our house) although the surrounding grounds are a work in progress so please don't expect manicured gardens. The studio is an ideal base for walking, swimming, surfing, fishing, wildlife watching & general coastal living.

Holywell bay has been used as a setting for many films & TV dramas including Die another day (James Bond), Summer in February & the recent Jamaica inn tv drama, it is characterised by the twin peaks of Gull (or Carter) rocks & has beautiful golden sands. Polly joke ( or Porth joke) is a beautiful little hidden cove. There are several great pubs & restaurants within walking distance if you should wish to eat out or go for a quiet drink.

Buses run on a regular basis from the village which is 10 minutes walk away, there is also a local taxi service.

Directions from the hosts were perfect and the home was easy to find. Open fields, horses, orchards, chickens, bee hive, fresh eggs, as well as a welcoming family - it’s just a delight to have the best of the remote, with just a 5 minute drive to the stunning bay and amenities. The apartment is more than expected. In the studio apartment there is a large living area with huge comfy sofas, tv, books and games for an evening in. The double bed was super comfy and provided a brilliant sleep. The kitchen and dining area is well equipped with absolutely everything you could ever need - over and above what we expected. We were able to cook with no problems. The bathroom has a suitable shower, warm towel rail, complete with the essentials. The hosts were welcoming and easy to talk to. Just the right amount of contact - Pete and Gail seemed very easy going and left us to it! Our greyhound also loved the scenery, but it may have been the rabbits tempting her!!

It was perfect for what we needed, close to town but far enough to feel the country side. Place was very clean and well kept. Had everything we needed. Lovely feel to it.

Could not have asked for a better place to stay! Comfortable, well kitted out, comfy bed and good shower. Short walk to Holywell beach, and shirt drive to Newquay. Lovely host and hostess in Pete and Gail. Looking forward to going back!

Relaxing and peaceful. Lovely walks through sand dunes to both Holywell beach and Pollly Joke. We came without a car and managed very easily. The studio had everything we needed and a few nice extras!

A fantastic experience in the lovely village and cozy room. Must try the unbeatable beach which is 30 mins walk away but definitely worth the effort. Gail is very helpful and we can't wait to come back again.

Nice and quiet location. Couldn't work out how to walk to the beach but there is National Trust parking and I'm 8 months pregnant, so we just drove. The beach is so beautiful. The space is as described. Our 3 year old loved the novelty of sleeping on a sofa bed. It was lovely sitting out on the small balcony overlooking the fields. Really nice place.
