The Location


Overlooking the beach at Porth, The Windward is ideally situated on the quiet outskirts of Newquay (1.5 miles from the town centre and 3.5 miles from Newquay Airport). We are close to the stunning Surf beaches of Newquay such as Watergate Bay, Lusty Glaze and Fistral Beach, and the famous South West Coast Path is literally on our doorstep, just across the road from our front door.

Porth Island on the eastern side of the beach is the site of an Iron Age settlement and is linked to the mainland by a footbridge. Beneath it there are caves which can be explored at low tide and is said were used by smugglers. On Trevelgue Head a pitch and putt course and a small crazy golf can offer a pleasant alternative to sun bathing. When the sea is rough the sight of spray shooting high into the air from the blow hole is spectacular.

Our position in Central North Cornwall is absolutely ideal for exploring the whole of this beautiful county.  An excellent road network gets you quickly to places such as St Ives (45 minutes), Padstow (20 minutes), Falmouth (40 minutes) and even Lands End (55 minutes).  Exploring the surrounding area and its attractions has never been easier.

Newquay Airport (10 minutes) has low cost flights incoming now from Gatwick, Stansted, Bristol, Manchester,  Leeds/Bradford, Durham/Tees, Norwich, Cardiff, Cork, Dublin and now Edinburgh.
