Has anyone let their 16 year old go, and how safe was it for them? Is it purely under 18s for the week or are there stag and hen parties also?
Hi Amanda. There is a certain week where under 18's come to newquay. they need a parental consent to stay with us. and we only take them for a midweek stay, sunday till friday, because weekends in newquay are full of stag and hen parties.
