Only 10 minutes from the Newquay Airport, my quirky 18th Century cottage is a real home from home.
Combining period features such as a stable front door, 'clome' oven and exposed walls with the luxuries of modern technology.
A small double bedroom with built in wardrobes and ensuite bathroom.
The comfy sitting room has plenty of seating and offers SKY+HD TV and Wifi available with a selection of books to keep you entertained if needs be.
The large fully equipped kitchen offers real farm house style living and is the heart of the cottage and I am happy to supply breakfast of toast, cereals, juice, tea coffee, eggs etc..
There is plenty of room in the reception room for safely storing surf boards, bikes, dog beds etc. and a washing-line outside for drying. Please note the stairs are wooden, open and traditional and a little steep.

Crossmount Cottage is perfectly located between the famous spectacular coast line and Newquay surf spots and the rolling countryside of North Cornwall. It is based in the small village of St Columb Minor which sits just on the edge of Newquay town centre, giving it the perfect balance between a vibrant seaside town and peaceful country living.
The Cottage is ideal get-away for anyone who loves being outdoors and enjoys playing in the sea, surfing, running, cycling, golf, or walking ( with a dog or not) as it is surrounded by 11 beaches, cliff coastal paths, rolling fields, popular cycle routes( mountain and road) and a small wood near by and the large Cardinham woods only a short drive away.
Alternatively though it can be just as much enjoyed by those with more romantic or relaxing ideas in mind with easy access to everything you need.
Porth beach; a family friendly non- surfing beach, is only a 10 minute stroll and its neighbour Whippsyderry ( a local surf spot ideal for avoiding the crowds) sits to the right, whilst Lusty Glaze, Tolcarne and the other town beaches sit to the left. Nearly all the beaches offer surfboard, body-board hire and wetsuits.
Safe road side parking and the village has a well stocked local shop, a local pub which offers food, or you can visit the Mermaid pub which does excellent food and sits on Porth beach, perfect for a beer, watching the sunset and all easy walking distance from the cottage.
The cottage is also centrally located 10 minutes by car from Watergate Bay, home to Jamie Oliver's 15 restaurant, as well as 10 minutes from Fistral Beach home of British surfing.
As it is close to the A30 the main road through Cornwall it is a great location to be able to explore the rest of the county, including the historic city of Truro or the old town of Wadebridge. The amazing ecological Eden Project is close by car, or you can catch a bus at the end of the road and is so worth a trip and offers a great day out.
Car rental is available only 5 minute walk from the house, or you can just use the bus service which runs regularly into the town centre and the surrounding areas, if you don't fancy driving or walking.

Please be aware that the cottage is set in a communal courtyard and my neighbours are very friendly, but will expect consideration for noise etc, as they all have pets( cats and dogs) and also there are a couple of young children too.
I am keen on being green, so please be conscious of only putting on the dishwasher when you need to and try to recycle.

Hey, I moved to Newquay from Cambridge to surf nearly 9 years ago, having fallen in love with Cornwall. I love the outdoors as well playing in the water. I am also keen on running, yoga, snowboarding and dancing( not outdoors - well sometimes when no-ones watching :)
I love travelling, meeting new people and having new experiences and now generally with my constant companion of a small dog called Faith. For me cooking rocks and entertaining friends and family is something I love to do, which is why the Kitchen is the heart of my cottage.
I am passionate about the written word, as an avid reader and also a writer with a blog, as well as a counselling practice. .
My whole career and life is based around loving life and loving and respecting the individuality of people and what makes each of us happy. My life mottos is be open minded and open hearted until proven otherwise and always be kind.
