Storm gazers and surfers will adore the panoramic sea views from this perfectly pitched, colourful, Art Deco haven. This one of a kind family house achieved TV fame and now it’s yours to savour.

Stimulating and restful in equal measure, feel yourself drift into 1930s movie-style heaven with a magnificent touch of modern luxury. Pop the champers, you’ve arrived! Even better, it’s pet-friendly too.

Artistic allure

From the outside, this place is striking, stunning in its pure, geometric Art Deco style. The striking aesthetic - bold colours, curved walls and furniture, exquisite craftsmanship and touches of the Orient - seamlessly weaves through this architectural gem in Pentire. This stunning restoration was featured in George Clarke’s Old House, New Home and it’s easy to see why.

No-one can resist going straight up to the panoramic windows displaying Newquay’s surf and headland. For a moment of pure mindfulness, just sink into the views. Watching neat sets of waves roll in and across the world-famous Fistral beach will bring you pure peace. It’s a storm-watchers dream.

The vast open living space invites everyone to spread out, take up their own space in luxury. Perhaps you’ll take a prime spot on the large sofa in front of the cool white Woodburner, the stunning sea views still in reach. Or perhaps you prefer a pew at the kitchen’s sky blue and white island, carefully placed so that whoever is the chef for the day doesn’t miss out on the conversation, or the ever-changing sky.

You’ll be wowed by the skilful use of bright colours that somehow don’t overwhelm the senses but stimulate them. It just wouldn’t be the same without the huge pink Smeg fridge and Frida Kahlo cushions, or the many original artworks that grace the walls.

Outside, there’s a huge glass balcony as well as a spacious, sheltered garden planted all around with carefully considered plant life to act as windbreaks. Little ones will adore the outdoor playhouse too.

A 5-minute stroll will take you to the beach at South Fistral. And when you’re revived enough to hit the wine bars and restaurants of buzzing Newquay, an easy 15-minute walk will take you there.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Four striking bedrooms in the main house each have their own distinct character with wonderful wallpapers. The master enjoys its own en suite wet room and a study area with door and steps down to the garden. The fifth bedroom is in the ‘hideaway’ - a separate annexe with its own kitchen-diner and lounge area - not for the tall people in your tribe - with doors leading to the garden and views over Fistral beach.


The view is amazing. The property is as described on the website . The keybox is not easy to find . The deck chairs and patio tables need replacing. Other than that the property is well located quirky and fun . The levels of equipment are very good and the property is very clean and good value for money . Maybe a bike store would be useful.

Mr G,


When many people think of Newquay, often their first impressions are of the lively night life the town has to offer, but Newquay has much more up its sleeve than just pubs and clubs. There are no less than 11 beaches along this part of the coast, most offering swathes of golden sand and plenty of family fun, and many, of course, are a mecca for the surfers who flock here all year round to ride the waves. A number of them are also dog friendly, so your best friend won't be left out either. From Newquay Harbour a wide variety of boat trips are available- whether you want to head out to sea for a fishing trip, try your hand at some of the water-sports on offer, or just take in the beautiful scenery, there will be something for everyone.  If you're lucky, you may even spot a seal popping its head above the water! A more sedate option is the Trenance Gardens and Leisure park, with its boating lake where you can hire rowing- or pedal-boats. Nearby there is also the renowned Newquay Zoo, and a riding stables, from which you can explore on horseback the Gannel estuary, one of the many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty Cornwall has to offer. A little further down the coast, Perranporth offers much in the way of family entertainment. There are beaches, cafes and water sports galore, plenty of wildlife, and for the historically-minded visitor, you can see an Iron Age fort and a local museum. If your interests lean more towards the literary, this stretch of coastline is known to have inspired Winston Graham to write the Poldark novels.
