A brilliant place to stay. Were looking for somewhere that would house 11 of us, be nice and relatively central in Newquay for nights out etc. It surpassed our expectations on every criteria. Anna was massively helpful before, during and after and would love to go back to visit again in the future. Highly recommended.

Thanks again

“An fantastic house in an amazing location!”

The Square House is perfectly located for a relaxing holiday with activities galore within a few minutes walk. We had 14 in our family group including children aged from 8 months to 17 years and we found plenty to amuse everyone - all within walking distance. From high street shopping to boat trips; from crazy golf to stunning beaches - it was all within easy reach of this fantastic house. The house itself was extremely well-equipped, with plenty of space for us all to eat, sleep & relax. Anna and Tim were incredibly friendly and helpful from our first booking query through to checking out. We had a wonderful week and would thoroughly recommend this property.

We have just enjoyed a fabulous family holiday at The square house. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds. Plenty of hot water. Fantastic location that means you are able to walk to beaches, restaurants and shops. Tim and Anna couldn't have been more helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

“excellent value , good quality and great location”

the house is well appointed with 6 bedrooms ( 2 ensuite ) , a family bathroom and a downstairs toilet . The house is set up well for 12 people although a group of 12 boys or girls need to note that there are 3 double and 3 twin bedrooms !! .
plenty of tackle in the kitchen - American style fridge freezer , microwave , big hob and oven , dishwasher , washing machine , toaster , kettle and assorted goodies.
There is a large dining table , comfy lounge with tv , playstation etc and a conservatory .
The location is great ( once you've found the house - it's a bit tricky if you arrive in the dark ) being about 50 metres to the closest bars and only a couple of minutes walk toi the front.
if I am planning to go to Newquay again I will definitely look up this place

Stayed at the square house for my brother in laws stag do and had a brilliant time. Anna is brilliant, she made a real effort to make our stay one to remember and even took the time to put me in touch with local surf company's as one of the activities for the weekend.

The house is clean, well furnished and feels like a home from home. It has a large kitchen, dining area and sports decent sized bedrooms. The location is perfect, less than a 5 minute walk to the nearest clubs and bars but far enough so that if you wanted a quiet night in, you wouldn't hear any noise.

Highly recommended, I'll be sure to use the square house again.

“Awesome place”

A group of 11 of us aged between 23-40 went away to the square house for a friends birthday. We were very pleasantly surprised by how lovely the house was. How easy it was to check in and out with keys etc. The key safe made it very simple for us all to come and go either as a group or individually.

On arrival at the house the instructions on how things worked or where things were we found friendly and easy to follow. The owner Anne popped by to see us the day we arrived and was very welcoming, helpful and friendly.

The house is very large, clean and spacious. Sometimes photos on a website are misleading but the square house really is as lovely as it looks. There was always hot water readily available, no one ever had to wait for a shower! The bath was lovely also (big enough for 2!!) the house has everything you need, dishwasher, washing machine etc. there's even an iPod audio connecter in the living room for your music.

The bedrooms all had comfy beds (except the room with the bunks in) two grown men unfortunately drew the short straw with those beds. Great for kids but not so comfy for adults. The bed linen was lovely and clean and fresh towels in every room provided.

We didn't unfortunately get use of the outside space in the back due to bad weather (early February) however it looked great , with plenty of space. The house has 3-4 parking spaces next to it. The location of the house was perfect. 2 minute walk to a massive sainsburys. 3 minute walk to the beach and local shops and bars.

All 11 of us would highly recommend this house and we would definitely return.

been here 3 times now and the service is still excellent. the house is a great house in the perfect location. Only small point to be said is we had a couple of cold nights and the heating was not on which would have made it a perfect stay as was a tad uncomfortable temperature wise. Thanks Anna and Tim for another good holiday.
