Zinc 50 stay. Excellent apartment with beautiful views over golf course and towards Fistral beach. Parking and lift was such a help with our elderly mother and also getting luggage to apartment. Very quiet building and apartment was clean and very comfortable. Very central if you want to explore Cornwall too, hour to many of the main holiday towns too. Certainly recommend to friends and family, we shall return.

May 2024

Lovely apartment, it's plenty big enough for 6 adults and our little pooch. The furnishings are of a high standard and the kitchen is well equipped.

The location is excellent for Fistral Beach and also for the shops etc in Newquay. Sainsbury's is a short walk away, as is the famous Red lion pub. There is safe and secure underground parking. Only thing I wished we had, was better weather, but that's the only grumble I have about our stay in 50 Zinc. Also a big thank you to Aspect who dealt with an issues within the property very quickly and efficiently.

We will be back, hopefully with better weather.

Holidays in Newquay

Holidays in Newquay are all about stunning scenery, beaches, and, of course, waves. As it’s the surf capital of the UK, you’ll find an abundance of surf shops and schools allowing you to immerse yourself in the surfing culture from the moment you arrive, whether you just want to watch or get stuck in.

However, if surfing isn’t for you, there are plenty of ways to fill the days while staying in the stunning beachside town of Newquay. Head to one of the many beaches for a family day on the sand - picture rock pooling, picnics, and sandy toes! Or, if you fancy a bit of retail therapy, the bustling town has a selection of independent shops selling an array of goods including clothes, artwork, and delightful handmade treats – not to mention a mouth-watering selection of cafés, bars, and restaurants for a mid-shopping or post-beach refuel.

Newquay also has a selection of attractions and events, perfect for the kids (and big kids) from a wild and wonderful zoo to a round of golf by the sea. There are also some great walks in the area thanks to the beautiful South West Coast Path, perfect for a dog-friendly Cornish getaway.

Did you know...

Newquay has nine sandy beaches to choose from!

Beaches in Newquay

When staying at a holiday cottage in Newquay, you won’t be short of aquatic adventures, with lots of sandy beaches on your doorstep. All of Newquay’s beaches are lifeguarded in the summer, providing a safe place to spend the day soaking up the sun. 

Fistral beach – What do you call the best beach for surfing in the UK? Fistral! With the most consistent surfing in the country and great swathes of golden sand, there’s little doubt as to why surfers flock here from all over the place. You’ll find a surf school and wetsuit hire for those wanting to travel light and it’s dog friendly all year round for those travelling with furry companions.

Watergate Bay – Second on Newquay’s surfing scoreboard, Watergate Bay offers a seriously spacious alternative to Fistral whether you fancy a surf, a stroll or a hot chocolate in the beachside café.

Crantock beach – If you prefer a quieter beach backed by sand dunes then Crantock beach won’t disappoint. Dog-friendly and perfectly sheltered on the southern end, this sandy haven is popular with families and anyone looking for a place to doze in the sand.

Newquay Towan – Right in the centre of the town, Newquay Towan is great for quick dips and sandy escapes while you explore the surrounding shops, attractions, and perhaps even a bar or two!

Great Western, Porth, Whipsiderry, Tolcarne, Lusty Glaze, and Mawgan Porth are also fantastic beaches in Newquay. Read all about them in our extended guide and discover your favourite!

Things to do in Newquay

With quick access to the rugged north Cornish coast and some fun-fuelled attractions and activities, there are lots of great things to do in Newquay.

Surfing & Watersports

Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, the beaches of Newquay offer something for every ability, weather forecast, and tide. And it’s not just surfing on offer either. Bring your own seafaring devices or hire kayaks and paddleboards from one of the many rental shops around.

Attractions

With such an abundance of attractions in and around Newquay, it’s the perfect place for a family holiday at any time of year. Newquay Zoo offers a great day out, as do the nearby Screech Owl Sanctuary and the Blue Reef Aquarium. For those who love animals and theme park rides, Dairyland Farm Park is the place to be while Trerice Manor House offers a beautiful walk through history.

If you fancy something a bit different, fishing trips and sea safaris are available, from which you can take in the scenery from a different angle. You may even be lucky enough to catch a sight of seals and dolphins!

Newquay Golf Club overlooks Fistral beach and is regarded as one of the best golf courses in the county, providing a different challenge every day depending on the weather, all with incredible sea views.

Shopping

From beach supplies to holiday mementoes, Newquay’s streets are lined with lots of interesting shops from big names to independent favourites. Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of surf shops where you can fill up your beachy wardrobe including Married to the Sea, Boardwalk Surf Shop, Watershed, and Ann’s Cottage – some even have surfboards too so you can really kit yourself out. Razzmatazz is an eclectic mix of fun, holiday take-homes and Lucky Go Happy provides a lovely selection of ethical bits and bobs for the whole family.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, a trip to Roly’s Fudge Pantry or Cornish Cream will see it satisfied as you’ll find a fantastic array of Cornish chocolates, fudge, and even Cornish cream tea hampers (which make for the ultimate beachside picnic).

Walks

With the north Cornish coast right on your doorstep, it will come as little surprise that Newquay is jam-packed with incredible walks. Walk around Park Head (which you might recognise from Poldark) and Pentire Steps for some stunning coastal views or trudge along to Lappa Valley where you can swap the rippling blue of the sea for the dappled shade of the woods. You’ll also find a lovely area around the Porth Reservoir and surrounding wildlife reserve, giving wildlife watchers plenty of opportunities to whip the binoculars out.

Dining out

Newquay's vibrant foodie scene has grown and grown over the years, with the town now offering something for every taste and occasion. If you want to eat out, you’ll find a huge selection of eateries, including many beach cafés and restaurants serving up locally caught seafood with incredible sea views. Or, if you fancy something special after a day surfing the waves, check out the many fantastic fine dining options or cocktail bars for a relaxing drink.

If you want to stay in and make the most of your lovely home from home, there are some excellent farmshops and delis in the area, including the welcoming Trevilley Farm for all your locally-produced needs or Malcolm Barnecutt Bakery for some seriously moreish fresh bakes.

Dog-friendly Newquay

If you want to bring your four-legged friend with you on your Cornish holiday, you couldn’t pick a better spot than Newquay where you’ll find plenty of great dog walks.

Dog-friendly beaches

Fistral beach – Surf, sea, and sandy paws, it’s all waiting for you at Fistral beach 365 days a year.

Watergate Bay – With miles of sand and lots of rockpools and caves to sniff out at low tide, this dog-friendly beach is a favourite with dogs and humans alike.

Whipsiderry beach – Considered a hidden gem by many, dogs are welcome throughout the year on Whipsiderry so why not take a dog-nap in the sand before checking out those rock formations!

Mawgan Porth beach – with Bedruthan Steps a short walk away and lots of sand for zoomies, the beach at Mawgan Porth is great for tuckering out the pooch (and the kids).

You can also see these beaches from the water, as many of the boat trips in the area welcome seadogs aboard!

Dog-friendly pubs and restaurants

When it comes to dinner time, there are plenty of dog-friendly pubs, restaurants and cafés where the whole pack can shake the day off and refuel.

Lewinnick Lodge – Perfectly placed up on the cliffs on the Pentire Headland, Lewinnick Lodge offers sea views with your meal, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or evening drinks with the pooch by your side.

Lakeside Café – Another dreamy spot for a bite to eat, Lakeside Café not only provides delicious treats for its human guests but for its doggie guests too – homemade dog ice cream should get those tails wagging!

The Old Albion Inn – 400 years old with no signs of slowing down, The Old Albion has truly perfected its welcoming atmosphere. Enjoy the thatched roof as you enter and the fully-stocked bar when you’re inside.

What's on in Newquay

Whether you love music and surfing, beer or food, there’s a festival in Newquay for you…

Cornwall Street Food Festival

Fantastic apartment

Lovely penthouse. Great views in both directions of the beaches and golf course. Very handy to have parking on site too as the town was very busy. Ideal location for lots of nice places to eat and also coastal walks and towns further afield too.

We were over the moon with the accommodation and location. Beautiful apartment, clean and spacious. Amazing views all around. Very quiet no noise from other apartments. Best accommodation we have stayed in, in Newquay. Loved the views of Fistral beach and of the golf course. Easy walking distance to shops and beaches. Easy parking. Very homely with everything you need. Great storage for bikes and surfboards and even an outside shower to clean off sand and wetsuit.

Highly recommend this apartment. Location was great. Apartment was clean. Lots of seating for dinner which was great as there was 6 of us. Loved how we were walking distance to Fistral beach. Bathroom facilities were great having the two. Bedrooms nice and spacious and airy.

Fabulous apartment Great location and so nice to have a parking space. We will return

We stayed at the Zinc for 10 days and had a lovely time! Not just the view was quite impressive, but also the gift bag, prepared by the hosts for us. The apartment felt very secluded and quiet, as we could not hear any noise from outside or the neighbors.

All in all, a wonderful property in a wonderful town! Lovely - we will definitely consider visiting again!

Lovely spacious property with a prime location, highly recommend.

Had a fantastic week in one of the best apartments I’ve stayed in over the past 15 years. Great location for the beach , town and coastal walks Already booked for next year

As a family of 5, we really enjoyed this apartment. It is located very close to Fistral beach and Towan Beach is not too far away. There are great views from the verandas, right over to Pentire and the surrounding beaches. The apartment is very spacious, furnished very well and the kitchen is well equipped. We loved our stay here and would definitely return here again.

Excellent property. Very high standard have stayed in this property before and will again. Also Aspect dealt with minor issues with property very quickly and efficiently. Location is perfect .

Excellent location and beautiful apartment. Maintained to a great standard, very spacious and wonderful views. The 2 balconies ensure you get sun throughout the day and evening. Lovely to watch the golf or the sun set. Well equipped but disappointed there was no washing machine in the apartment for refreshing beach towels etc..

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It is such a shame that you had not contacted us while you were here so that we could let you know where the washing machine was. There is one in the apartment, but it is in a cupboard in the bathroom, so perhaps easily overlooked. We are glad that you otherwise enjoyed everything there. Tanya, Customer Services

A perfect stay! The apartment and views were even better than the photos. From board storage downstairs and extra blankets to a fully loaded spice rack and picnic sets, we had everything we needed and more.

We’ll definitely try to return next year!

I am so pleased I found this apartment and wouldn't hesitate to return. The sea views are amazing from the floor to ceiling living room windows and watching the golfers was good fun.

The furnishings are of a high standard and the kitchen is well equipped. The location is excellent for Fistral Beach and also for the shops etc in Newquay. Sainsbury's is a short walk away.

The car parking is safe and secure with a generous space allocated.

All in all, a luxurious and comfortable stay.

This is a well appointed spacious apartment, well positioned for Fistral Beach and the surrounding area. We enjoyed our stay at 50 Zinc and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

What an amazing apartment. It is located close to Fistral Beach, with views of both Fistral and Towan Beaches. The apartment is spacious open plan and exactly as shown in the pictures. We loved our stay here.
