I’m a petite blogger who loves to find a bargain, I work full time as a digital content editor in beautiful Warwickshire but blog about my passions part time which gives me the best of both worlds. When I’m not writing about my other love: fashion on my blog Call Me Liz I love talking about places I’ve travelled to and my hometown of Stratford Upon Avon. I’m eager to see the world one place at a time…
Why I chose to write about Newquay…
Newquay has become a family tradition, every year we drive down and stay at this beautiful bungalow overlooking crantock beach. Living away from my family in the midlands it gives me a chance to spend more time with them in such a lovely part of Cornwall.
5 things to see and do in Newquay
Healeys Cyder Farm
Visit Healeys Cyder Farm which is 15 minutes away from Newquay town. They are an award-winning Cornish Cyder producer of rattler cyder which you will definitely see served all around Cornwall. Here you can take a tour around the distillery, feed the farm animals and have afternoon tea.
Eat fish and chips on the beach! (Weather permitting) Rick Steins casual restaurant on the famous fistral beach is perfect for a takeaway, grab your deck chairs and relax watching the surfers do their thing.
Crantock Beach // Surf
Visit award winning Crantock beach to surf, relax or look for crabs! When you’re done at the beach you can walk along the Cornish Coastal Path to the bowgie inn a pub situated on the West Pentire Headland. The views are amazing and the food is great value for money.
If you love to take in pretty surroundings or just want to get away from the busyiness of Newquay town head to the Japanese gardens. Set in 2 acres, it is an oasis of tranquillity within Newquay.
Holywell Bay Fun Park
If you’re visiting Newquay as a family with kids then you want to head to Holywell Bay Fun Park. They have crazy golf, trampolines, go karts and so much more.
Liz’s Recommendation for Food & Drink in Newquay
Tucked away on the pentire peninsula is Lewinnick Lodge, an award-winning restaurant and hotel, all the food is produced with local Cornish ingredients and the panoramic view across the ocean is incredible. I visit for dinner every time I am there.
