The village of St Newlyn East, which lies 5 miles inland from the popular coastal town of Newquay, is situated in an area perfect for those wanting a walking or cycling holiday whilst still being close enough to make the most of the North Cornwall beaches. 50yds from Sparrow Cottage is The Pheasant Inn which offers quality home-cooked food and real ales. The village also has its own grocery store and a traditional butcher shop.
A circular walk runs by the pub and descends into the stunning Lappa Valley passing the remains of the East Wheal Rose engine house. Cycle route 32, part of the Cornish Way cycle route, will take you to Newquay, Padstow or Bodmin. For those less energetic the cottage provides a welcoming home-from-home with its wood-burning stove, plush sofa, king-size bed and pretty front garden where you can sit out and hear the relaxing sounds of the sparrows chirping. Sparrow Cottage is a traditional cottage which has been beautifully modernised and which provides a high standard of accommodation for two. With local facilities on your doorstep and easy access to the A30, it is perfectly located for exploring Cornwall.

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.
Sparrow Cottage was lovely, just what I was looking for. A cosy little bolthole near to the north coast set in a nice little village. I enjoyed several local walks around the farmland, valleys and downs. The local shop had everything I needed as well as great friendly service. The welcome pack was a really nice touch and I enjoyed the tea and biscuits in front of a lovely warm fire most evenings. I would definitely recommend to a friend and return again in the future for a winter holiday. Thank you. P.S. excellent booking service too. Well done to the whole team.Miss Jennifer Parker - 31st October 2017
A perfect cottage, really cosy. Lovely bedding and very clean, a real find! Really close to lots of beautiful beaches for us and our dogs to explore.Ms J Roberts - 18th September 2017
The property is lovely and a real home away from home, if not better! The owner has thought of everything even down to magazines for you to read during your stay and the property was spotless. Would highly recommend. Miss Georgina Roberts - 4th September 2017
A STUNNING LITTLE COTTAGE IN A GREAT VILLAGE ENVIRONMENT. THE OWNERS OBVIOUSLY HAVE A GREAT PRIDE IN IT AND IT SHOWS. NICE AND CLOSE TO ALL THE VILLAGE AMENITIES AND A COUPLE OF MINUTES DRIVE FROM BOTH CRANTOCK AND HOLYWELL BAY. We have stayed 4 times in a year I think that says it allMr Michael O'Sullivan - 31st August 2017

Absolutely beautiful.Mr Scott Game - 29th May 2017
One of the best properties we have stayed in.Mr D Smith - 10th April 2017
A beautifully decorated cottage with a cosy, quirky feel well situated for countryside walks and for visiting the coast. The village setting is very pleasant and we were made to feel very welcome in the local pub. We never met the owner of the cottage but on arrival we were made to feel very at home with some most appreciative treats, our dog was included too. We look forward to returning again soon.Mrs A Rudd - 11th March 2017

A charming cosy cottage . Beautifully decorated and great attention to detail . Good location . We would recommend Sparrow Cottage without hesitation .Mrs Karen Holcombe - 4th March 2017
We have stayed at this cottage before as we love its location. Although it is compact everything is there that you would need and more besides. It's location is it's selling point being right in the middle of the village. You can tell it has been put together with thought and care and would recommend it to anyone and everyone.Mr Michael O'Sullivan - 2nd March 2017
