Apartment In Porth, Newquay



Updated: 01-Oct-2016
Apartment in Porth, Newquay, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach. Wonderful Sea Views

Zenith is a new block of luxury apartments situated on the stunning North coast of Cornwall. Five minutes walk down the road is Porth beach; a sheltered beach that has a long tidal drop with an expanse of golden sand making it an ideal for families. Watergate Bay is close by and home to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant. The fishing village of Padstow with Rick Steins' restaurants, plus Cornwall’s best attractions such as the Eden project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Land's End are all within easy reach. Newquay town centre is about 2 miles away. Directly opposite the apartments, is Whipsiderry beach where there are caves and rock pools to explore. It is accessed via steps down the cliff and connects to Watergate Bay at low tide. Zenith offers easy access to some amazing coastal walks enabling you to take in some of the most stunning scenery Cornwall has to offer.

About the Owner

We are a semi-retired couple who, after looking for a holiday home in many exotic locations in Europe, decided that North Cornwall was hard to beat.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Booking arrangements were easy and arrival instructions were clear. Underground car park was great but we have a long car and getting out of the tight exit required a steely nerve (if you value your alloys wheels) with only an inch of two to spare each side!

The apartment is very clean, one of the cleanest places I have rented. The decor is modern, linen is good, sofas and beds are comfortable, kitchen is well equipped. Cage to store stuff in the car park was great and it was perfect being able to use Tom's chairs and windbreaks.

Whipsiderry beach is lovely (no lifeguards), Porth is more family orientated but still less busy that the town beaches. Watergate bay is great. Had nice meal at the Beach Hut at Watergate (very busy - you need to book) and also at Lewinnick Lodge on the Pentire headland at Fistral. The cafe next to Wax at Watergate does nice ice cream and chips/pasties etc. We kayaked at Fowey (with Fowey Kayak Hire) and cycled the camel trail from Snails Pace cafe (where we hired bikes) at Wenford Bridge to Wadebridge (about 18 miles each way). Booked surf lesson with Fistral Beach Surf School. Great Instructor, Dan, and my daughter and her friend were the only 2 in the lesson so private lesson for the price of a group one! visited Padstow one evening, very busy and 400 people there eating Rick Stein's take away fish and chips around the harbour. We left after an hour but no doubt Padstow is lovely out of season.

Would highly recommend this apartment.

Everything we needed for a wonderful family holida

  • 5 of 5

From booking to the end of our holiday, our stay was lovely. The location is superb, overlooking two sandy beaches, and the little balcony allowed us to appreciate the views.

From a practical side, the arrangements were stress-free, and the private underground parking was priceless. Having stayed in Newquay before and played the Russian roulette of on-street parking, the knowledge that we could go out for the day without losing our spot (especially with children) was great. The surf cage in the car park was a nice touch, and very well-equipped with beach chairs, wind-breaks and bodyboards - which could make flying to Newquay airport a possibility without the burden of carrying your own.

The apartment itself is stunning - spotlessly clean and comfortable - and the attention to detail was very much appreciated. From the welcome bottle on arrival to the comfy beds, high-spec bathrooms and DVD library, we felt at home straight away. We've stayed in self-catering flats / houses before, and always had to take bulky towels with us, so having them provided was great. In the past, we have rented places where there was not a scrap of loo roll, washing-up liquid or tea towels to be found anywhere - which after a long journey, make all the difference!

The kitchen is the best I've seen in a holiday property. We're keen cooks so having proper non-stick saucepans and good quality utensils was wonderful. Even the cutlery and crockery was of restaurant quality (and plenty of wine glasses!!) and the folder of instruction manuals was incredibly useful.

Underneath the television there is a wealth of information about the flat and local attractions - there are even OS maps for keen walkers! Thank you, Tom, for your consideration and attention to detail.

I only have one criticism - and this concerns the building's management company rather than the owner of the apartment. There are no recycling facilities in the basement, and having visited the area's many cider farms to sample the local produce, having a bottle bank, at least, would have been appreciated!

Tips: the beach just opposite the flat is much nicer and quieter than Porth beach down the hill (but beware of the very steep steps) and it's worth walking over to Lusty Glaze Beach Restaurant for a lovely meal (15 min walk over Porth beach and along the coastal path towards the three long banners you can see from the balcony). Head to Wadebridge to hire bikes to follow the Camel trail.

Excellent stay...highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Number 9 Zenith was in an excellent location, very clean and beautifully presented. Situated on the outskirts of Newquay is, in my opinion, a much nicer place to stay. It was very close to Whipsiderry and Porth beaches which the surfers amoungst us found very useful. The underground car park was secure and has surf cages to keep boards and beach equipment. The apartment has 2 bathrooms, which was very convenient after a trip to the beach. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and the WiFi worked well. We had a great holiday.

From the Owner

We bought our apartment after many wonderful holidays in the North Cornwall area. We particularly love being so close to the sea and having spectacular coastal walks literally on our doorstep. In the warmer months we enjoy swimming and body boarding at many of the wonderful sandy beaches in the area.

Whipsiderry beach is directly opposite the apartments and accessed via steps down the cliff. Porth beach is a 5 minute walk away.

Watergate beach can be reached on foot either along the coast path or, when the tide is out from Whipsiderry beach.

The nearest airport is Newquay (5 miles); nearest railway station Newquay.

Nearby is also Watergate Bay (5 miles). This is a stunning beach and home to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Restaurant, Watergate Bay Hotel which is open to non-residents and the Beach Hut which is a café on the beach.
