Booked with my family for my 30th birthday for a week in Newquay. Great location for the zoo, indoor pool and adventure area (all 5 min walk)tolcarne beach is approx 10 min walk, newquay town beach is approx 30 min walk and fistral is 40min walk(or you can drive to all within 5mins). The weather wasn't great on our stay but had board games in the house to keep us entertained. One bedroom downstairs with bathroom next door and 2 bedrooms upstairs with bathroom to share. Pete the home owner very friendly and helpful during and after our stay (as I forgot some clothes and he posted them back to me the next day)
Just returned from a lovely week at Swallowtails. The location is perfect giving easy access to local shops and beach which is only a ten minute walk.
The accommodation is spacious and well maintained with ample parking for cars.
Very highly recommended for a large family or group of adults.
On our arrival we were met by the owner, who advised that he would be returning every day during our holiday to collect a trailer out of the garage that he needed for work. Although it states that there is parking for several cars, the owner keeps both a car and a caravan on the drive so we were then advised exactly where to park the car so that he could gain access to the garage. This is not our idea of a holiday home, and we were very upset that he had put us in a position where we had to call Newquay holiday rentals to complain . Although he agreed to return to remove the vehicles we felt uneasy that he could return to the property unannounced for other items that he may need out of his garage. We felt that upset and uneasy and awkward about the situation that we felt we could not stay in the property. The owner kindly agreed to refund us part of our money. It has now been 2 months and both the owners and Newquay holiday rentals have ignored us. Very disappointed, would definitely not recommend the property or Newquay Holiday Rentals.
This is our 3rd stay here and we always enjoy our visits. The owner is very friendly and helpful. He provides bread, tea, coffee, milk, butter, scones, jam, clotted cream and wine - much appreciated! The house is light and airy and very clean. The garden is a great size and secluded. The property is in an ideal location - a 10-15 stroll into the centre of Newquay. Highly recommended!
