Moonstones is a fabulous, detached bungalow situated just a very short stroll from the fantastic surfing and sandy beach at Holywell Bay, with direct access onto the sand dunes from the rear garden. Perfect for larger family groups, friends or couples away together, the spacious open plan design is light, bright and welcoming. The large picture windows allow lovely views over the rear terrace and garden, to the National Trust dunes and Holywell Bay Golf Club. Holywell Bay is a dog friendly beach all year round and Moonstones allows up to two well-behaved dogs by arrangement.

The very private sunny rear garden with lawns and patio terrace area is fully enclosed and a wonderful spot to enjoy leisurely barbecues or just relax and unwind. Guests are welcome to use the main full-length utility space for storage of surfboards or cycles and there is ample parking for four cars on the block pavoir driveway. As well as two local pubs close by, there are some fantastic dining opportunities with Fifteen at Watergate Bay only 9 miles distant and Padstow with its world famous chefs, a further 12 miles. Birdwatchers will love the surrounding area not only for the native Cornish Choughs recently seen in the garden, but also for the waders on the shoreline.

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with direct access to a wonderful sandy beach, miles of coastal walks, golf adjacent, horse riding and two separate course fisheries nearby, Moonstones really is the ideal base for a great family seaside getaway and for fans of Poldark, Gull Rocks and the beach at Holywell are in every Episode!  Holywell Beach in the series is owned by the Poldark Family with the on screen phrase '"This is the best beach in Cornwall".  We couldn't agree more!

Local Area

When many people think of Newquay, often their first impressions are of the lively night life the town has to offer, but Newquay has much more up its sleeve than just pubs and clubs. There are no less than 11 beaches along this part of the coast, most offering swathes of golden sand and plenty of family fun, and many, of course, are a mecca for the surfers who flock here all year round to ride the waves. A number of them are also dog friendly, so your best friend won't be left out either. From Newquay Harbour a wide variety of boat trips are available whether you want to head out to sea for a fishing trip, try your hand at some of the water-sports on offer, or just take in the beautiful scenery, there will be something for everyone.  If you're lucky, you may even spot a seal popping its head above the water! A more sedate option is the Trenance Gardens and Leisure park, with its boating lake where you can hire rowing- or pedal-boats. Nearby there is also the renowned Newquay Zoo, and a riding stables, from which you can explore on horseback the Gannel estuary, one of the many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty Cornwall has to offer. A little further down the coast, Perranporth offers much in the way of family entertainment. There are beaches, cafes and water sports galore, plenty of wildlife, and for the historically-minded visitor, you can see an Iron Age fort and a local museum. If your interests lean more towards the literary, this stretch of coastline is known to have inspired Winston Graham to write the Poldark novels.

Great location. Property was very well equipped. It was plenty warm enough. Although the garden is self contained. Our naughty springer managed to jump over the wall into next doors garden to get a closer look at the chickens!!! A very relaxing place to holiday.Mrs L Hammond - 11th April 2017
Such a lovely bungalow. We've stayed here once before so we knew what to expect. We'll definitely be back. So lovely for our little dog. We could have done with a foot stool to rest weary legs and also the bathroom towels were rather small but we managed fine. Thank you.Mr John Seedell - 4th April 2017
