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.

Ms Amanda C,

I was suspicious at the absence of any negative online comments or feedback, thinking all the positive reviews could be fake, but after staying at the cottage I realise why there are no negative comments - Lovely, quaint cottage. Very clean.

Mrs H O,

We enjoyed our stay at Sparrow Cottage very much. Very nice village and dog friendly pub. We were very comfortable. Thank you.

Mrs Mary E,

Another fantastic stay at Sparrow cottage - thanks!

Mrs Lily K,

Very nice and clean comfortable bed overall a pleasure to have stayed there.

Mr Mark L,

Property was spotlessly clean, not far from Newquay and easy to travel to other areas around the coast, excellent local walks.

Mrs Julia R,

Lovely quaint cottage.

Mrs Catherine H,

It is a lovely little house in a very friendly and peaceful village. The pub next door does good food which is a bonus.

Mr Tiernon B,

Sparrow Cottage is a beautiful cottage, very homely, immaculate cleanliness, decor, attention to detail, lovely welcome pack . You can tell this property is truly cherished by the owner. Would highly recommend, excellent for visiting north cornwall attractions.We really didn't want to leave.

Mrs Jeanette R,

We live in Australia, we were looking for a cottage in a small village in Cornwall, we found Sparrow Cottage on the Cornish Horizon website. The cottage was exactly as described on the website. It was a very comfortable stay, we are very happy to be able to recommend it.

Mrs Anne M,

St Newlyn East is a good spot for accessing the A30 to tour Cornwall. The village is quiet, has a shop and a pub very close by and the local people are friendly. There are some narrow lanes to negotiate but several different routes lead to the village. The cottage is clean, well equipped and cosy and all of the appliances work well. It would be a challenge for anyone finding steps difficult to negotiate. There were toilet and kitchen rolls, washing up liquid and hand wash provided. There was sufficient room for food storage, including a good sized fridge/freezer. The cottage information on the Cornish Horizon website is accurate and the booking process and access information was efficient

S S,

Such a beautiful quirky cottage, with lovely homely finishing touches. The owner really thought of everything providing all you'd need for your stay.

Mrs Erika H,

Sparrow Cottage is a perfect little cottage - it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday in a lovely village close to the coast and has easy access to major roads for trips further afield. The cottage is really comfortable and is very well-equipped. The excellent secure garden for our dog was greatly appreciated. The local pub is just a few steps away and serves great food. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week and would definitely book again.

Lisa L,

A really well presented cottage in a lovely location, ideal for walking and central to the area for day trips etc. The village had a very friendly feel to it. Would definitely recommend the cottage to family and friends. The experience of renting the property was very straightforward and clear to understand.

Mr Andy P,


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.
