The Old Stables, Newquay

Located on Cornwall’s stunning north coast, The Old Stables is a beautiful property, full of character. Let by holiday letting agency Cornish Horizons, The Old Stables is spacious and wonderfully presented. With three bedrooms this is the perfect holiday retreat for families and groups of friends. The property’s wood flooring gives it a warm, rural feel and the exposed stone walls with rich tones complement the earthy colours of the stylish kitchen décor. Outside, the garden includes a great expanse of lawn, perfect for family barbecues, dogs to run around in and outdoor games. There’s even a trampoline to keep the kids entertained!

After a day in the surf or walking along Cornwall’s rugged coastline, return to the house and enjoy a luxurious sauna followed by a refreshing shower, or simply sink into the freestanding bathtub to soothe your tired muscles. Head to the kitchen and cook up a feast then wander out to the terrace for al fresco dining in the late summer sun. Finally, end your day relaxing on the spacious L-shaped sofa with a glass of wine and a good book.

Situated near Newquay, all the delights of Cornwall’s north coast are close to hand but being on the outskirts of town, you can still enjoy the peace and tranquillity of
the countryside.
