Destination guide

Journey through jolly old England… on a surfboard?

As far as cozy English seaside towns go, they don't get any cozier than Newquay. Set along the North Atlantic coast in Cornwall, the seaside resort is known for its abundance of outdoor activities. The sandy beaches give way to big waves, making the town a hot spot for surfers. For a relaxing stay in your Newquay vacation rental, leisure attractions, from zoos and parks, help you connect with nature. Whether you're lounging about on the beach on a summer day, or taking a stroll along the majestic cliffs in the winter, there's always something to do in Newquay.

Things to do

All aboard! Family fun is leaving the station

If you have kids staying in your Newquay vacation rental, you'll find plenty of attractions for them to enjoy. Trenance Leisure Park is home to playgrounds, a miniature golf course, an indoor swimming pool, and miniature train rides. The park is also home to the 13-acre Newquay Zoo, which features more than 1,000 animals, including the popular sloth exhibit. You'll find more wildlife at Blue Reef Aquarium, where coral-reef tanks play host to sharks and rays. Just 5 minutes outside town, Lappa Valley is a miniature amusement park with 3 train rides, kiddie rides, mazes, and a lake for canoeing.


Hang ten, dude—surfing and seafood in a coastal village

The Atlantic Ocean in this region sports large, hollow waves, giving Newquay its reputation as the surf capital of the U.K. If you don't have a board stored away in your Newquay vacation rental, you can rent one at the beach. Other water-based activities include jet skiing, scuba diving, and kayaking. Back on land, you can tee off at golf courses or go horseback riding along rustic trails. The town hosts a variety of festivals throughout the year, including the Boardmasters Festival, which features live music, and surfing and skateboarding competitions, and the Newquay Fish Festival, which celebrates seafood dishes.


Sunny summers, wet winters, and everything in between

Newquay might be a popular beach destination but it's still England, which means daytime temperatures in the summer, although the warmest and sunniest season, only reach the high 70s. The winters are very mild, and you'll only see a slight differential between daytime and evening temperatures, both of which measure in the 40s. Fall and spring offer crisp conditions with temperatures in the 50s and 60s. The town gets more than its fair share of rain, accumulating up to 40 inches each year, and you'll need to find shelter between October and January, when nearly 5 inches fall each month.

Natural features

Holy mackerel! Wildlife and natural beauty on display

Newquay offers quite the dramatic landscape as towering cliffs drop into blue waters, and beaches dotted with sandy shores, tide pools, coves, sand dunes, and rocky outcrops line the coast. Inland you'll find parks and formal English gardens, where ducks and geese roam across perfectly manicured lawns and rose gardens. If you want to see wildlife, local boat tours typically know where to spot dolphins and grey seals, all common to the area. Take a chartered fishing excursion or cast a line from the shore and, on a good day, you'll catch plenty of bass, mackerel, and dogfish.
