This stunningly-restored Art Deco property can be found in the Pentire area of Newquay. Attention to detail and with an emphasis on bringing the outside in, Red Rails is truly a unique holiday home. Some of you may well remember seeing it appear on George Clarke’s Old House, New Home as the restoration project was followed by him and his team from start to finish. The house has oodles of space yet with character and charm and an interior styled to make you feel like you are a movie star. The view from the open plan living space is every surfer or storm watcher’s dream. Watching neat sets of Atlantic Rollers or a dramatic storm roll in from out at sea and across the world-famous Fistral beach is one you’ll never forget. However if you’d prefer to experience it from the beach you are a mere 5 minutes’ walk from the steps at South Fistral.

The outside space not only has the huge glass balcony but also a large lawned garden below where you will feel enclosed and sheltered - perfect for barbecuing and a game of bowls or football.

With the fifth bedroom being its own self-contained annex below the main floor of the house, one lucky couple can have their own hideaway retreat. With its own bathroom, kitchenette, TV and lounge area and doors opening on to a view across the garden and Fistral everyone will want to stay in The Hideaway.  This house will be an experience to stay in not just a holiday and one that Cornish Horizons welcomes with great delight. Situated a 15 minute walk to the centre of Newquay means that going out and exploring the town and its beaches couldn’t be easier. With so much to do in Newquay and many new independent restaurants and wine bars such as Tom Thumb, Gilmore's and Rebelion you will find plenty to fill up your time.

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.
