Elmar - Cubert, Nr Newquay, North Cornwall, England - Sleeps 4


Elmar is a four hundred year old period cottage complete with a massive Inglenook fireplace and bread oven situated in a quiet village location tucked away next to the ancient parish church just a mile away from the sea. Whilst the cottage comfortably sleeps four guests in two bedrooms, its character features, wood burning stove and coastal location make it an ideal romantic retreat for couples, including those who want to bring their dog away with them.

The Cornish village of Cubert offers a choice of pubs, restaurants and a general store and is ideally placed within walking distance of Crantock beach, Holywell Bay and Polly Joke. Holywell Bay and Crantock Beach are beautiful huge golden bays with caves, dunes and rock pools that the children (and adults!) will love exploring. Polly Joke sits between the two and is a magnificent natural beach ideally placed with National Trust land and a stunning rugged coastline surrounding it.

There are two village pubs including the picturesque Smugglers Den Inn (a delightful 16th Century thatched inn) and two restaurants including Off Shore which is fast attracting National attention being carved into the hillside and offering unparalleled views of the North Cornish coastline as far as St Ives.

Attractions and days out are plentiful with the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lands End all top of the list and within easy driving distance. There are also pretty fishing villages and harbour towns to explore along the coast and great days out for the little ones including Dairlyland Farmworld for some fun down on the farm and The Lappa Valley Steam Railway with its miniature linked railways, boating lake, crazy golf and play areas.

The surf capital of Britain, Newquay, is only five miles away with its world famous facilities but for those who are looking for a quieter more tranquil seaside holiday, Cubert is an ideal choice with its lovely walks to beaches such as Polly Joke which was voted one of the country's top secret beaches.

For walkers, join the South West coastal path which meanders through the three local beaches before rising up the magnificent headlands on its spectacular journey on this section of the coast. Good shore fishing locally, with charter boats available at Newquay.
