Myself, my partner and our dog had a lovely week stay in lavender yurt, you get a real camping experience only ending the day in a lovely, comfy king size bed. The shower/toilet facilities are to a good, clean standard. The kitchen facilities are well stocked with plenty pots, pans and cutlery (although a couple of our knives and folks broke). The area outside the yurts is nice and well kept, although we didn't actually use the swimming pool it looked very nice. Andy one of the owners is a very friendly, helpful chap who is around to deal with any questions or problems( his dog Roxy is also very friendly. The only downside to our stay was that due to location I was unable to get out and walk the dog or walk to the local pub because there were no pavements on roadside and it's a busy little road.. The local pub has a great friendly atmosphere with some fantastic food and the landlord is fab with a good bunch of staff.
Hi Josie, Thank you for taking the time to review Lavender Yurt. We are so glad you had an enjoyable stay and enjoyed our facilities. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Thanks Jodie
Lavender Yurt is situated less than 1 mile from Goonhavern village that has a traditional Cornish pub and shop, the miles of golden sandy beaches are less than a ten minute drive away.
The North Coast of Cornwall has an abundance of attractions like Newquay Zoo, Blue Reef Aquarium and the Eden Project nearby. Perranporth village is in close proximity and entices sunbathers, surfers and families with its three mile long sandy shores, where you and your family can have lunch in the Watering Hole pub situated in a prime position directly on the beach. Nearby is the bustling resort of Newquay. These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the towns main industry, where as it once used to be a major export port for the counties mining efforts as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach holds many surfing competitions throughout the year, and also hosts Run to the Sun over May Bank holiday, a VW and Custom Car Show. Both the Womens and Mens Gig Championships are held here, as well as a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub tropical gardens in the centre of the town.
Neighbouring Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. Fifteen Cornwall, founded by Jamie Oliver in 2002 sits on top of the two mile beach at Watergate offering inspirational views for the young chefs and professionals to create fantastic menus from local and seasonal produce. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous immensely pretty beaches for the less active. Trerice run by the National Trust is 3 miles outside of the town is an Elizabethan Manor House and Garden with restricted winter opening times. Holywell Bay is one of the finest beaches in Cornwall. Just 6 miles from Newquay and Perranporth on the north Cornish coast. There are 2 village shops and two inns. There is also an 18 hole golf course, Holywell Bay Fun Park, fishing and horse riding very close-by. The secluded National Trust beach at Holywell combines golden soft sands and safe bathing with dynamic caves and cliff walks. With RNLI surf patrols, it is one of the safest surfing beaches on the North Cornwall Coast. There are many caves and rock pools to explore with a large expanse of sandy dunes, providing shelter and privacy. Fishing from the beach is good and the excellent cliff walks provide breathtaking views.
Holywell Bay derived its name from a spring fed well, said to have curative properties. It was custom in the older days that parents brought their sick children and dipped them in the well. Above the well is a small cave where the children were lowered from. The well is to be found at the north end of the beach in a large cave, reached only at low tide.
