    “Perfect home from home for our weeks holiday.”

    Well equipped with everything you could possibly need including scones, tea, coffee and milk in the fridge upon our arrival.

    Well equipped with everything you could possibly need including scones, tea, coffee and milk in the fridge upon our arrival. Easy to find and parking clearly marked (maybe a little tight if you have a big car) . Garden tidy and very secure for dogs of all sizes. 3 minute drive to Watergate Bay Beach (parking is free from 1st November to 1st April). Beach is dog friendly all year round. Lots of Surf schools too. Communication with home owners was excellent and we do hope to stay again!

The property

The beautiful ocean and golden sands at Watergate Bay are within a 10 minute downhill stroll of Bayview.

Positioned in the little hamlet of Tregurrian with sea views, it makes a wonderful holiday homestay four miles from Newquay and seven from the iconic resort of Padstow, with award winning eateries and pubs.

Watergate Bay is perfect for sandcastle fun, beachside picnics and is famed as one of the finest surfing beaches in the county.

Enjoy an exhilarating ramble along the cliff tops with stunning countryside vista and waterscape beyond.

Close by is Wax Watergate Bay restaurant, a great dining venue with its incredible view across the bay.

Towan Beach at Newquay is popular, safe and sheltered for swimming with gentle surf for novice boarders.

The Blue Reef Aquarium and Newquay Zoo are great attractions for all the family.

Water enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with Fistral Beach, a surfers' paradise.

Hire bikes at Padstow and cycle along the scenic, level Camel Trail through the spectacular countryside or walk 10 minutes from Padstow to St George's Cove with lush estuary views.

Hop aboard the ferry to Rock, which sails every 20 minutes.

Within a half hour drive discover the buzzing community at Trevaunance Cove in St Agnes and after a dip in the sea or coastpath ramble, enjoy refreshment from the Driftwood Spars Inn with its award winning ales.

Equal in distance is Truro city with eateries, retail fix, cinema and theatre.

The incredible Eden Project is 20 minutes by car.

Bayview nestles in a small tranquil close of terraced cottages.

Superbly presented and spacious, the accommodation is homely and ideal for families, couples and gathering of friends seeking a fusion of beach and countryside.

From the comfy sitting room with dining area, an open staircase leads up to a smart bathroom and three pretty bedrooms, two with ocean views.

The well equipped kitchen leads out to a private courtyard garden; a super sunspot for languid breakfasts, barbecues, evening tipples and a spot to dry off the surf gear in readiness for another surf-tastic day!

About the location


Newquay 4 miles; Newquay Airport 1.5 miles.

The peaceful destination of Watergate Bay is home to a few cottages, a couple of hotels on the headland, a fantastic beachside bistro and an extreme sports/surf school, placing the bay in a class of its own. Viewed as one of Cornwall’s best surfing beaches, Watergate Bay also offers sand yachting, paragliding, kite surfing, cliff climbing, and abseiling. The area is a favourite with walkers, with the South West Coast Path extending west toward Newquay and east to Padstow, through some of the county’s most dramatic coastal scenery. Newquay, with its lively resort attractions, shops, bars, zoo and Sea Life Centre is just four miles away, whilst the picturesque town of Padstow, with its famous seafood restaurants and beautiful harbour area, make a great day out. The world-renowned Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum at Falmouth and the Cathedral city of Truro, with its cobbled streets, restaurants, museums and theatre are all within easy reach, as are several stately homes and outstanding gardens. Peace and tranquillity are assured in this beautiful area with roaring surf, great beaches and much to see and do right on the doorstep.
