About this property
Porth 0.5 miles. Spindrift is the perfect, year-round bolt hole for those seeking a romantic weekend away, or a traditional family beach holiday close to the waters and boasting an amazing sea view. This contemporary, ground-floor apartment is set between Watergate Bay and Newquay, a very short stroll from the child-friendly, award-winning Porth Beach, which unusually for this part of Cornwall has flat access from the beach’s car park. Upon entering this well-furnished holiday home, your eyes are immediately drawn to the large windows in the sitting area, which provide spectacular, uninterrupted far-reaching views across the Porth Island beauty spot, over the sea and along the coast to Newquay Harbour. The spacious open-plan living area consists of a well-equipped kitchen, leading to a separate dining area and then onto the sitting area with two large sofas, perfect for relaxing and simply gazing out across the rolling waves. A patio door opens to a grassed area where you can sit and enjoy the views. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and luxury en-suite, as well as boasting a sea view; ideal for breakfast in bed while watching the ocean. The second bedroom is a twin, which can be set up as a king-size double bed on request. Outside, a small private enclosed courtyard patio, complete with furniture, offers a peaceful suntrap where you can relax together late into summer evenings. Beach and surf buffs will find this location absolutely ideal, and be spoilt for choice by the selection of sandy bays nearby. Walk across the road, turn left and within a short stroll you are on Porth Beach, after first passing Whipsiderry Beach, adored by surfers who flock here throughout the season. Set opposite the South West Coastal Path, the cottage is perfectly placed for hiking by yourselves or with your dog; as dogs are welcome at this apartment. Just under two miles away by road, or a steady walk along the beach and coast path, you can discover the many delights that the lively seaside resort of Newquay offers. Follow the coastal path east towards Watergate Bay, an equally as steady walk away, where the Fifteen restaurant is located that was made famous by Jamie Oliver, but now equally celebrated for the plentiful watersports on offer. By car, virtually all of Cornwall's tourist attractions are within easy reach, or you can take advantage of the regular coastal bus service to Padstow or Newquay, making this fine holiday home the perfect location whatever the time of year. If you are arriving by plane, the airport is just a short drive away.
