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.

Very cosy comfortable cottage. Spotlessly clean. Very comfy bed. Nice sun trap on the patio. Pub close by with friendly staff. Sadly only open Friday Saturday and Sunday but that may be due to Covid but they do take out which was good and we had an excellent Sunday dinner.

Mrs P,

We had a wonderful time and such a lovely cottage! We will return!

Miss Julie M,

Superbly located for all the wonderful beaches nearby, lovely cosy cottage.

Ms Amanda C,


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.
