May 2021

We originally booked an apartment in a communal block but needed somewhere self contained for the first two days due to Covid restrictions so we amended and booked the Old Worrkshop for the first two days. It was immaculate, couldn't fault it in any way whatsoever. Very comfortable apartment and very clean.

Time well spent looking forward to our new stay

We had a lovely week at the Old Workshop. The property is a perfect peaceful bolt hole, really clean and lots of little details catered for. Would highly recommend.

Clean comfortable accommodation would recommend to family and friends

We enjoy spending our holidays in Cornwall, the beaches and coastal landscapes are amazing there are plenty of places to visit and wonderful walks along the coast line is enough to clear the mind. Cornwall is a great place to visit, when the weather is right you can almost imagine you are in the south of France.

Everything was in walking distance as we don’t have a car. Bus station local Ideal location for all the beaches Plenty of food places for eating out & shops for supplies We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Workshop & the owners were friendly Would recommend the apartment to friends

Great location just 15 minutes walk to the beach and town centre and it’s located in a very quiet residential street. The apartment is situated underneath a garage and at the end of a garden which I would guess belongs to the owners. It was very clean and bright with pretty much everything you could need for a weeks stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Workshop. The location is perfect for Newquay, and the property has good private parking. The property was incredibly clean and modern, which was really pleasing given that hygiene is so important at the moment. I really felt that the company had gone to trouble to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

Such a lovely little bolt hole ... comfy exceptionally clean, fab location and made our holiday

The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped. It had a great range of cooking utensils and everything else you may need if you want to stay in and cook. It has a washing line and a small courtyard which was really handy for drying our wetsuits and towels. We loved the extra touches such as the fresh flowers and wine. It is located within a 15 min walk to Great Western beach which is one of our favourites, and also many of the restaurants. If your preference is Fistral beach then the apartment is about a 40 min walk away. This is our second visit and we look forward to returning!

The best holiday ever we cannot fault it at all fantastic service throughout

Cosy & quiet flat a short 10 min. walk from city center. Perfect place if you are visiting Cornwall by car. Fully equiped kitchen and even a nice bottle of wine is offered :) Don't look further, quite good price-value-ratio. Excellent for couples with or without toddler :)

This is a very comfortable apartment and in a convenient location for the town centre. The owners are friendly and helpful and provided a welcome hamper of wine, chocolate biscuits, fresh flowers, milk, tea and coffee.

We will certainly come again.

Had a lovely weeks stay at this property. Short walk to Newquay,but quite location.

Could not fault the old workshop in terms of cleanliness and overall cost. The only downer was that the walk to the town centre was very steep!!!!!!! But overall a very nice holiday very nice.

Clean, quiet and comfortable. We met the owners and they are very nice and approachable. A lovely place to stay.

Had a really good time

The Old Wokshop was an amazing and lovely stay, the location was perfect and the apartment had homely touches throughout such as fresh flowers awaiting our arrival. We couldn’t say one bad word about our stay.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. We felt very well. It is a quiet and very nice place to stay. Most beaches are accessible by foot.

This cottage was in the ideal place for town, beach food and drink excellent choice.

We had a fabulous stay at The Old Workshop - the facilities, furnishings and welcome touches were of a high quality and we would highly recommend staying there to anyone who wants a base in the center of town from which to explore. Lovely views over the hills beyond the town too!

What a lovely studio apartment. The bed was supper comfy and cosy, the lounge area , kitchen and shower room very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend a stay , especially as it is so near to the beaches and other attractions in Newquay.

Lovely location, quiet area, not bothered by anyone, well equipped, spotlessly clean, very considerate owner leaving milk etc, lovely stay very comfortable

The cottage is well equipped and very attractively decorated. It is in a quiet location but only a few minutes walk from the town and beaches. The reserved parking space was also very convenient.

Not worth the money

Tanya, Customer Services

We could not have had a better stay. The accommodation was a fantastic base was extremely clean and in a fantastic spot.we will be returning to the old workshop and will definitely use aspect holidays to book through. We go to Cornwall every year and visit different places up and down the area. we found this a fantastic place just in the middle of everywhere we wanted to see this time. But many more places to visit next year.

the old workshop is in a great location, shops bars beaches and restaurants all within walking distance, very modern, clean comfortable and very homely, everything you would expect from a holiday home an so much more, we will definitely be coming to stay again.

Choosing to stay at The Old Workshop was the best decision. The cottage is exectly as described. Perfect for two persons. Very comfortable, and fully furnished for those who would like to spend the evening to relax and cook a nice meal. Location is great, and makes it easier for those who would like to explore Cornwall, since it is practically in the middle. Area is very quite, which surely helps in having a very good sleep at night. Facilities: supermarkets, shops, restaurants are within walking distance. I fell in love with the place and immediately felt like a second home. Thanks for the amazing experience! Will definitely recommend!!

We had a very warm welcome and lovely hosts. It is a good location for two and everything is within reach on foot (city, beaches, shopping...).
