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.

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.

Aug 2019

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! ;-)

Jul 2019

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

Aug 2018

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.

May 2018

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

Aug 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!
