  • “We have stayed before and it was great but this time the cleaning left a lot to be desired with cobwebs and dead flies.”

    The airing cupboard which houses the boiler was locked so we were unable to put the heating on initially, then we had water leaking into the conservatory which saturated the rug. We hung it over an airer to dry and cleaned up but it took 3 phone calls before anyone came to remove the rug and give us access to the boiler, apparently a key should have been left but it wasn't. The owners acted as soon as they found out but your company's response was sadly lacking. The big grey sofa needs to be ...

    The airing cupboard which houses the boiler was locked so we were unable to put the heating on initially, then we had water leaking into the conservatory which saturated the rug. We hung it over an airer to dry and cleaned up but it took 3 phone calls before anyone came to remove the rug and give us access to the boiler, apparently a key should have been left but it wasn't. The owners acted as soon as they found out but your company's response was sadly lacking. The big grey sofa needs to be replaced and the cottage felt damp without being able to out the heating on. I shouldn't have had to phone 3 times to get action. We will not be returning.

The property

Heliview Cottage is a stone-built, detached property nestled alongside and owned by the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, near Newquay Airport.

It offers bags of character and a contemporary-style interior welcoming families, couples and friends to share a well-earned break in an interesting part of Cornwall.

The cottage is a haven for aviation enthusiasts, with opportunity to see the helicopters up close, meet the crew and glimpse views of Newquay Airport from the bedroom windows upstairs.

Make the most of your relaxation time on return from an adventure on the coast and unwind into your evening in the bright and airy lounge.

You can get cosy by the woodburner during the winter months and enjoy a board game at the coffee table or catch up on your favourite shows on TV.

Rustle up a home-cooked meal in the modern-style kitchen and get the whole group together around the dining table to catch up on events form the day.

The sun room can be enjoyed the year-round, a lovely spot for a cup of tea and a chat as you watch the arrivals and departures at the nearby airport from the enclosed garden.

Find three bedrooms over two floors upstairs; there is a double and a twin, which has zip/link beds for flexible sleeping arrangements, then another twin room rests under the eaves.

This is the perfect hideout for the children, where they can snuggle into bean bag chairs with a good book or play games together, as the natural light from the Velux windows flows through.

Pass a summer's afternoon in the garden and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining at the picnic bench and take in the views of the surrounding farmland towards the sea in the distance.

St Columb Major is a lovely market town to base your holiday, close to all the seaside wonders of Newquay.

Take the kids to the zoo or SEA LIFE centre and find endless shops, pubs and eateries as well as opportunities to surf and try a number of other watersports.

Visit the St Agnes Heritage Coast to see the iconic Wheal Coates tin mine ruins or feel the golden sands of Chapel Porth Beach beneath your feet.

This is the place to truly get away and explore a beautiful part of the country.

About the location

NEWQUAY

Holywell 6 miles; Perranporth 8.5 miles; Truro 14 miles; Padstow 14 miles.

Newquay is 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. The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 14 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached within 30 minutes. Picturesque St Ives and the Tate St Ives gallery is under an hour's drive or a train ride away. In fact, because nothing in Cornwall is far from Newquay, it’s the perfect touring base.

Note: Please be aware that throughout the year, the trust runs occasional events and open days which can result in increased activity on site.

Note: Whilst the Coronavirus pandemic is ongoing it may be impossible to offer airside visits in order to protect the aircrew.

Note: The hot tub was removed from this property in May 2020.

Note: Essential Construction works, spring and summer 2021, Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust Operating Base.

During 2021, Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust is extending its aircraft hangar to provide new office and training accommodation for the critical care paramedics, helicopter pilots and engineers. This extension of the existing building is required because the clinical and operational team is bigger, with the charity delivering a life saving service 19 hours per day all year round. This construction work is expected to commence in April, and will continue throughout the summer and into the autumn.

The hours of work for the construction site are 0800 to 1700 Monday to Friday. No works take place during evenings or at the weekends.

The construction site is nearby to Heliview cottage, which is right next door to our charity headquarters, and the operating base for the Cornwall Air Ambulance. Viewing Heliview TR84DY on Google Earth, the works will take place at the furthest end of the hangar building, away from the cottage.
The charity expects the first 3 months of works, getting out of the ground and main construction of the structure, to be the time when the works could be disruptive to visitors. Works vehicles, deliveries, and the construction contractors will all be using the main entrance to the head quarters car park, and operating around the site.

If you normally spend your day out and about while you are on holiday, you may not find the proximity of the building site an issue, however if you prefer to spend long relaxing days in the cottage and the garden, from Monday to Friday up to 5pm, you may be disturbed by vehicle and construction noise.

The charity is discounting the normal cost of a holiday at Heliview by £100 per week for all weeks booked in April through to September 2021.
If there is a delay to starting the works, or of the works end earlier than expected, the discount will still be honoured, even if your holiday is unaffected.
