Why Ming chose Newquay & St Austell

Newquay is optimally located to allow access to the many attractions that Cornwall has to offer, including spectacular natural sceneries, delicious cuisines, beautiful subtropical gardens, and diverse wildlife. Our new holiday apartment is strategically located between Tolcarne and Lusty Glaze Beaches. The stunning sea views from the Apartment remind us of the magnificent seas of clouds seen from the top of Mount Alishan in Taiwan, hence we call our new holiday home Alishan. Indeed, our Cornish Alishan is easily accessible all over the UK and beyond. The Newquay Cornwall Airport is just five miles away; from there. We adore Alishan very much and believe our guests will appreciate it too.

What makes this apartment unique

From our apartment, you can enjoy not only the scenic sea views, but also easily explore all the lively and blustering features of Newquay and beyond.

A Holiday Apartment that cannot be better!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely holiday apartment. It is spotlessly clean and has more than everything that holiday makers require. The apartment is well located, i.e., within walking distances to beaches, the town centre, supermarkets, and the railway station. The big lounge windows are like super cinema screens; you can watch the Cornish coast changing colors under different weather. It is such a perfect place for holidays and we wish it would never end. Highly recommended.

A well thought out apartment

  • 4 of 5

Great location; well suited to those who like to self-cater. That flat was very clean and well presented with thoughtful touches. Just one small quibble - some coat hooks would be useful.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your feed back. We will find a coat rack before you visit again.

First Class stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment 24th to 29th October. The position is fantastic overlooking the barrow-field and the sea beyond. It is situated in the better part of the town and despite the traffic it is reasonably quite.The apartment was clean and well equipped. The owner provided a very comprehensive summary of the amenities and the local services that are available.

This is a property that we will rent in a future stay in Newquay and one we have recommended to a friend.

A restaurant we found to be a cut above the rest was The Dolphin in Fore Street, do not be put off by the entrance as the saying goes "don't judge a book by it's cover"

Ideal Apartment near Newquay

  • 5 of 5

Alishan is the ideal apartment for your stay in Newquay. It is clean and fully equipped and, maybe more importantly, very near to one of Newquay's many beaches (Tolcarne) though the others are not far away. The apartment is also only a few minutes walk from the centre of Newquay which has everything needed for a good holiday. The added bonus is the apartment has its own parking space which no-one else can use.

We would highly recommend using Alishan if you are looking for a good, well priced place to stay in Newquay.
