October 2021

We had a lovely week at this well equipped apartment. The weather wasn’t brilliant so it was great to return to a very comfortable warm apartment. Couldn’t have asked for more.

I would point out that the apartment is set back from the front of the building and so the view you get is tunnel vision between the sides of the buildings so you cannot see to the left or right.

Only one set of keys are given so if two couples are sharing maybe ask for a second set so both parties can gain access independently.

Also the ramp down to the underground car park is very narrow so if you are a nervous driver do be careful.

Holidays in Porth

With a beautiful, sandy and sheltered beach on the doorstep, and only a 15-minute walk from everything Newquay has to offer, the area of Porth is ideal for a relaxing holiday by the sea. 

Porth has an interesting history, dating back centuries. Porth Island, also known as Trevelgue Head was the site of an Iron age fort, with remains still evident today, dating back to the Bronze age. The beach also played a vital role when Newquay became a china clay port; importing coal from south Wales. 

Top tip

Pack a picnic and enjoy a day at the beach!

Beaches

Porth

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

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

Walking

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!

Shopping

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. 

Other activities

If you're looking for something more active to do, you can try out zorbing at Cornwall Zorbing Park

Alternatively, if relaxation is what you're looking for, the spa at Sands resort is open to the public.

We loved this apartment! It felt like we were abroad given the overall layout of the apartment block, sea view and the beautiful beach opposite. The place was spotless on arrival. Thank you to Jane the housekeeper. Great homely furnishings, easy to operate hob and oven, great shower. It was a pleasant space to spend the one rainy day we had and was lovely to see the sea sparkle from the sofa on the sunny days. Location was fabulous. On the coast path for walks to Newquay and Watergate Bay. Near to Crantock, St Agnes in one direction driving and Mawgan Porth, Mother Ivey's Bay in the other. We would definitely recommend Gull Rock for a relaxing holiday.

Very comfortable well equipped apartment. Quiet location outside Newquay’s main resort but walking distance to Porth beach, although it is at the top of a short steep hill. Aspect holidays were excellent. We had a query about bedding and it was resolved within 24 hours.

What a lovely place to stay, great view of the coastline and a great location for getting out and about/jumping straight on to the coastal path. It was lovely to find a welcome note and little gift from the owners and it was a great response and sensible approach to dealing with COVID. Thanks for a lovely stay! We’ll definitely come back!

Gull Rock Retreat was everything that we could have wished for and have everything that you needed to enjoy your holiday. Gull Rock is in a fantastic location over looking the sea and is a great location and on a bus service into the town and close to all amenities. Wonderfully equipped with super comfortable beds and sofa. The kitchen and it's contents were better than I have at home. What also made our holiday which for decorated for my 50th birthday and lovely cakes, a bottle of fizz and a card was left from Aspect Holidays .10/10 for the property and the service from Aspect from us and hope to visit again in future and would 100% recommend Aspect Holidays to family and friends,

Thoroughly enjoyed week at gull rock retreat Accommodation very comfortable and well appointed. Superb view in lovely area. Would be happy to return in future.

We are just back from a week at Gull Rock, such a lovely well equipped comfortable home from home. Great location for easy drives to all the places we wanted to visit.

Gull Rock Retreat is a perfect home from home - even better than home. Wonderfully equipped with super comfortable beds and sofa. The kitchen and it's contents were better than I have at home. The visitor book has been completed by guests and the owners during their stays with lots of information and recommendations. The apartment is in a perfect location, unless you have mobility issues. The beach is just over the road and down 135 steps, and the local pub is great. I would definitely recommend to friends and family and hope we can stay here again. Thank you to Aspect Holidays for having Gull Rock Retreat in your portfolio - it's great.

Aspects Holiday is 9/10 service... I say this because even though they are great, there's always room for improvement. .. I just don't know what! ;-)

Fantastic clean modern apartment, we loved our stay a gull rock.

The apartment was luxurious with all the equipment needed. Location could only be improved by moving the apartment onto the beach!! This is a place to relax, to walk, to unwind, to enjoy.

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

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!
