Newquay

We are going to visit Newquay for 2 days in July. We are 60/65 years. Will that be a mistake?

Is Newquay a town for young people (mostly!)?

If YES, where would you suggest us to stay? Not St Ives, it is to expensive for us.

Thanks in advance!

Lis, do you have a tent? If so, I can recommend a very nice campsite in Crantock.

Hi Ilovegreek..

No I don't have a tent. We plan to cycle and see different places in Cornwall. From hotel to hotel and stay on each a night or 2). In this way we can see most. It is not like by car, then you can stay one or 2 places, you move faster!

Newquay is not a place just for the young. We have coach loads of pensioners coming to visit all year round.

Take into consideration when booking accommodation that you are not in the centre of town, maybe around Porth area would be quieter. Also in July you may have a problem with a one night booking most places only allow you to book 2 or more nights. You will also need some where that you can store your bikes securely.Please let us know if we can help with anything else.

Used to stay on the pentire headland overlooking Fistral beach, far enough out but close enough to get in.Be aware that whilst there is some stunning scenary on the north coast, there are a number of steep hills. One popular option is the Camel trail from Bodmin and Wadebridge to Padstow.
