  • “Wonderful house in a lovely quiet village that has the advantage of a good food pub and a co-op shop.”

    Great local walks. Far reaching countryside views from the back garden. Loved our stay and will definitely be back.

The property

Situated in the lovely village of St Columb Minor near Newquay, Hillview Cottage is a three-bedroom, semi-detached cottage.

It is ideal for a family beach holiday and those wishing to explore the beautiful county of Cornwall. Hillview Cottage possesses a real family feel and this is evident when stepping into the property.

Set over three floors, the first room you’ll find is the sitting room.

Its open fire is a great spot for everyone to gather round.

Elsewhere on the ground floor is a modern kitchen and dining area, both these rooms look out over the garden and the nearby fields.

The cottage’s bedrooms can be found on the first floor, the first of which is a king-size, while there’s also a twin bedroom, which upon request can become a super king-size double.

Both of these rooms have en-suite showers.

The final bedrooms are a children's bunk and a single.

As well as the bedrooms, the first floor also has a family bathroom, which is located between the bunk and single rooms.

Younger members of the family will also enjoy the second floor, as there is a den, which features plenty of games and toys to keep them entertained for hours on end. The enclosed walled garden with patio offers views of breath-taking countryside views, and is therefore a wonderful place to relax after a day out in the town. Away from the cottage, holiday makers will find a supermarket just a short walk away, while around the corner is the local pub, the Farmers Arms.

As well as the sandy beaches, Newquay offers a lot of walks along the fields.

The town centre has an aquarium and zoo, both of which offer a worthwhile day out for all the group.

Padstow is another town to visit, and the harbour town is just 14 miles away.

You could also explore Truro which has museums, cathedrals and many restaurants to choose from.

Half an hour from Hillview is Eden Cottage. With so much to explore, Hillview Cottage is the ideal location to base you and your families for a holiday in Cornwall.

About the location


Porth 1 mile; Newquay 1.6 miles; Truro 14 miles.

St Columb Minor is a quiet village off the main road into Newquay, with a supermarket and an excellent local pub, the Farmers Arms. Here, apart from being well-known for their food and local ales, a varied range of weekly events prove most popular. Opposite the pub, is the magnificent village church, dating from around 1430, and the high tower has been a landmark for generations of fishermen. There are many lovely beaches on offer in Newquay that you will be spoilt for choice but, for families, Porth beach takes some beating. A lovely sandy beach with a sheltered aspect being protected by headlands on both sides, it has been a favourite with those in the know for many years. Just over a mile away is the town of Newquay which is known as the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a watersports paradise!
