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.

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.


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 Sibbons - 25th September 2018
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 Haran - 3rd September 2018
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 Leivars - 27th August 2018
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 Pomfret - 21st August 2018
The village of St Newlyn east is lovely - very quaint and lots of friendly locals and dog lovers. Really only 10 - 15 mins away from any of the beaches and there is a local bus service if you needed it. The Inn a few doors away from the property does amazing food.Lily Kimberley - 30th July 2018

Fab location lovely cottage, all essentials at your finger tip.Mrs Sonia Whitehouse - 27th March 2018
Lovely cosy cottage, our second visit, the standard is as good as it was last February.Mrs Karen Holcombe - 5th March 2018
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

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
Friendly and informative. We have booked several times with Cornish Horizons and have no qualms about recommending them for a wonderful holiday.Mr Michael O'Sullivan - 16th January 2017
