Gull Rock Retreat Porth, Newquay

Gull Rock Retreat is perched on a hill overlooking the beautiful Porth headland and the secluded Whipsiderry bay. This two bedroom apartment is a perfect spot for a family or romantic getaway. Just a few minutes' walk takes you down onto Porth's sandy beach which is perfect for children to paddle with a small river running through as it heads out to sea. Newquay town is just a five minute drive and less than a mile the other way, you can breathe in the sea air overlooking the golden sands of Watergate Bay.

With allocated parking and sea views, this stunning apartment is in a convenient location being close to the beach and countryside. Stroll along Porth beach to the Mermaid Inn for a bite to eat or an evening drink. Being situated a short walk away from the coastal path, Gull Rock Retreat is a great base for exploring or just relaxing on the nearby Whipsiderry beach.

The sandy, sheltered Porth beach is one of Newquay's finest, and with a vast expanse of sand and plenty of rock pools at low tide, it's perfect for a family day at the beach. It's also lifeguarded between 10am and 6pm during the summer months. To the east of the beach you'll find Porth Island, featuring evidence of an iron age settement, and accessible only via a narrow foot bridge!


Whipsiderry is great for exploring, with plenty of rock pools to keep you busy. Although the steps down to the beach are a little tricky to negotiate, it's well worth the journey. Plus - this beach is dog friendly all year!

Things to do


One of the best walks is the coastal path, you can follow this to Watergate Bay, and if you're up to it, all the way to Mawgan Porth. You'll experience breathtaking views, and if you're lucky, you may even see some sea life!


Roo's Beach, in Porth, is a high-end fashion and lifestyle shop where you'll find stylish clothes, shoes, make-up, stationary, candles, crockery, blankets and more. 

Further afield, Newquay high street has a range of shops where you'll find everything you need from food, to toiletries, to gifts.

Gull Rock Retreat is a fantastic property situated close to the beach. Great sea views. The owners attention to detail was second to none as they had thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable and as comfortable as possible. The property was immaculately maintained and clearly well loved by its owners. The location meant that we could explore Cornwall at our own pace. Several people have seen our photos and asked us for details already. Thank you

August 2017

The apartment is lovely and exactly as pictured. It was a stones throw from Porth Beach and is located next to lots of amenities. We would definitely stay here again!
