About Tom Craig

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.

Tom Craig purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Tom Craig chose Newquay & St Austell area

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.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in an ideal location for walkers (the coast path passes about 20 metres from the building) and for beach lovers Porth beach is just a 5 minute walk away.

There are numerous good pubs and restaurants in the area with a number of gourmet restaurants within easy driving distance.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was superb, furnished to a high standard with quality appliances. We were greeted with a card and vino on arrival. The apartment was very clean with beds made and fresh towels. We really couldn't have asked for more, with smart tv , wifi and dvd, late evening was not a problem. Although we didn't need them, there were chairs, bodyboards and windbreaks in the surf cage in the car park.

If you get stuck,all the handbooks for the appliances are in a folder with other useful info about the area.

Although the steps to the beach opposite are not for the faint hearted, it is definitely worth the climb, the beach is superb at low tide, just don't get cut off as the tide comes in! For an easier walk, Porth beach is just down the hill, so you don't even need to get the car out.

The location is great for going up and down the coast to some superb beaches without being in the bustle of Newquay itself. Newquay takes about 10 mins in car and we parked easily at Mount Wise car park, but I would get there before 10 am

We really enjoyed our stay here and I would recommend this apartment to anyone.

Immaculate holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the apartment - stayed with my partner & 2 teenage boys, plenty big enough for us all. It was very clean and well equipped for a holiday stay. The kitchen has all the utensils you needs even for someone who likes to cook from scratch like me! Some welcome touches such as luxury towels and the items you always forget for the kitchen - salt and pepper, oil as well as washing up liquid, tea towels and soap at all the sinks - thank you. Comfortable beds and plenty of wardorbe / storage space.

A fabulous location for the beach (although the weather didn't lend itself to sunbathing whilst we were there!) and some lovely local walks. Plenty of information about local attractions in the apartment and even ordnance survey maps for walkers. Lovely coastal walks from the accommodation. The folder of local information about shops etc was also very welcome. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony reading and watching the tide come in and out. Very relaxing, if a little blustery at times! The tide clock in the apartment was an interesting touch. The teenagers were grateful of the WiFi and enjoyed cards with the poker chips.

The off street parking is a big plus. There is equipment in the locked cage there for the beach (although we didn't use this) but couldn't see any wetsuits.

We had a nice meal at Lewinnick lodge (booked online in advance) and the fish and chips from the holiday park, 800m away, were amazing & reasonably priced.

We would happily recommend this apartment. Arrangement for collecting keys and security was excellent.

Amazing views from a beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment! It was like a home from home with all the equipment you could ask for and more. The surf cage was really useful to store all the beach equipment that comes with 2 boys who love body boarding. The views are amazing with a stunning smaller beach directly opposite the apartment, with a larger beach just a stroll down the road. This was an ideal base to enjoy this beautiful part of cornwall.

Quality apartment close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a place. Good views of the sea, quality furnishings, nice and clean. Great detailed instructions on where and how to get in and how things work.

Five minute walk to the beach down the hill. Loved it, will be back!

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.
