About Jane Clark
Hi! We are Dick and Jane, the owners of 8 Pentire Heights. We live in Sussex, have two grown up children and two dogs who love coming down to Cornwall with us.
Jane Clark purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Jane Clark chose Newquay
We have always wanted a property close to the sea and have been fortunate enough to find our ideal apartment at Pentire and look forward to spending as much time there as possible. We chose it as Newquay is an excellent holiday location with plenty of things to see and do in the area - great surfing, good access to shops and a wide choice of pubs, bars and restaurants with good public transport links! The apartment has lovely views of the sea, it is close enough to the centre of town to walk, but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Autumn stay at Fistral Beach
Fabulous apartment, home from home. Great location
We had a lovely week in the apartment. It's about 10 minutes walk down to the beach at fristral or the same to the Gannell side of the headland and it was lovely to be able to have a sea view from the lounge and and both bedrooms and to hear the sea at night. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need and we had plenty of space for four of us. The beds were comfy and all home comforts were there. We will definitely look to book again if we return to Newquay. Many thanks.
Superb location! Great for a UK break!
Very clean, tidy and well located flat with great views! Close to beach and great bar/restaurant at the Lewinick Lodge! Will be back soon! Thanks
Wonderful stay in Pentire.
This property provided a fantastic base for our holiday stay in Newquay - a real home away from home. Close to the beach, pubs, restaurants and town centre. Flat was clean and welcoming. Will definitely be back again and would strongly recommend.
Thank you for your comments, I'm pleased you found it so well positioned for your holiday!
Perfect flat, wonderful location
The flat is very comfortable, everything you need is there. Comfy beds, perfectly equipped kitchen, amazing view. Ideal location to visit Cornwall.
Great position overlooking the bay and just 15 minutes walk into town. Clean and well appointed apartment with everything we needed. We thoroughly recommend this property and will hopefully be back. Also great communication with the owner.
