We had a mini break of rest, Quakers is great for a recharge of batteries. It is quite close to Padstow and Newquay and lends itself to being quite a central base. It is a cosy and warm, happy little place run by adorable people who own many rare breeds of ducks, turkey and Alpaca.

Fantastic location- just a few miles away from beautiful Mawgan Porth beach and plenty of other attractions and harbours. We had everything we needed and there was a local shop not far away, if not. Lovely hosts, who were more than happy to help if we needed anything.

Beautifully clean, only the best quality for everything I cannot think of anything that could be done to improve the accommodation. Very helpful and friendly owners and I loved being able to see the Llamas, geese etc. My little pekinese found it all fascinating and he loved all the quiet walks.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
