Me and my boyfriend stayed here for two nights in June. We got there. The owners were very friendly and helpful showing us around the place and telling us about the local places good to eat. The room was very clean and a very good size and a lovely comfy bed. Breakfast was incredible with a lovely choice perfect for... More

We were a party of 7 who were walking the SWCP and stayed in the cove for one night. Andy and Emma were really warm and welcoming and the rooms were excellent, well furnished and spotless. There is a decking area with comfortable seating at the front of the house where you can have a cool drink after you days... More

Tired after walking the coastal path from Constantine Bay we could not have received a better welcome. Lovely balcony to sit on in the sunshine overlooking the beach. Lovely rooms and first class breakfast. Helpful recommendations for eating and concern to make our stay as good as possible. Emma and Andy are doing a great job.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Cove Guest House. I can honestly say it was the best B &B we have ever stayed in. The room was spotless, bed really comfy , toiletries, tea, coffee and biscuits and lots of little extras that made our staff that much better like: a warm welcome, lots of... More

We stayed at the Cove for one night in May. We were given a warm welcome by Andy and Emma. There is a beach theme throughout the guest house with some very quirky touches (I was lucky enough to find the bathroom light pull in the shape of a beach hut in one of the shops in Newquay). Our comfortable... More

After staying at The Cove last year (and being very impressed) we decided to book again for our annual bike outing this year. Arriving as we did on our motorbike, it wasn't long before we were met warmly by Andy's cheerful "Hello!". We had booked a slightly bigger room, appointed to the same high standard. Comfy beds? Check. Spotlessly clean?... More

Excellent accommodation situated away from the noise and bustle of Newquay yet close enough to visit all amenity's. Friendly and helpful hosts; tasty breakfast and cakes. Good walks along cliffs and beach, ideal location for exploring the North Cornish coast. Highly recommended.

My friend and I stayed at the Cove while visiting a friend in Porth for the weekend. The Cove was a great base for us and the verandah outside was the perfect spot for drinking wine, reminiscing with old friends, while watching the tide come in - absolute bliss! The rooms were beautifully clean and homely and the homemade cake... More

Sometimes when searching blindly on the internet you discover a little gem. The Cove is such a place. I had a fantastic welcome, homemade cake in my room and a beautiful home cooked breakfast with the best of local ingredients. All for a fantastic price. I can't recommend highly enough :)
