About the property

Villa Francia - a holiday home that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms

Holywell Bay is just one of the most convenient locations in Cornwall Besides the proximity of one of the best beaches on Cornwall's Atlantic Coast, there are miles of walking to be had along the coastal footpath and many attractions within easy reach because of the proximity of the main roads.

At Pennasville, you could not be closer to the beach! A short walk across the dunes takes you to the beautiful golden sand and crashing surf of the RNLI patrolled beach. It is just so convenient! Pennasville is a self-contained site which is safe and secure. The are electric gates at the main entrance to the site which are operated by a security card.

The key code was not clear (it contained a letter when the keypad was only numbers!) there was no phone signal for mobiles for us to call the owner so we had to use the public phone on the main road (which will shortly be decommissioned meaning a car ride back up the hill to get mobile phone signal)

Our paperwork stated we had a parking space outside the villa, yet the folder inside the property said we needed to park in the overflow. Despite displaying the permit clearly and parking without causing obstructions-we twice received slips on our car informing us we were not parked correctly.

The windows are very low set on the walls, with very soft open catches with keys removed. This was a scary prospect leaving my toddler to sleep in the downstairs bedroom knowing he could easily undo and climb out the window (yes his nickname is Houdini!)

Other than the above points a very enjoyable stay.

Holywell Bay is one of the finest beaches in Cornwall. Just 6 miles from Newquay and Perranporth on the north Cornish coast. Holywell Bay is an ideal spot to tour from as it is very central for all parts of Cornwall. There are 2 village shops and two inns. There is also an 18 hole golf course, Holywell Bay Fun Park, fishing and horse riding very close-by. The secluded National Trust beach at Holywell combines golden soft sands and safe bathing with dynamic caves and cliff walks. With RNLI surf patrols, it is one of the safest surfing beaches on the North Cornwall Coast. There are many caves and rock pools to explore with a large expanse of sandy dunes, providing shelter and privacy. Fishing from the beach is good and the excellent cliff walks provide breathtaking views. Holywell Bay derived its name from a spring fed well, said to have curative properties. It was custom in the older days that parents brought their sick children and dipped them in the well. Above the well is a small cave where the children were lowered from. The well is to be found at the north end of the beach in a large cave, reached only at low tide.

Nearby is the bustling resort of Newquay. These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the towns main industry, where as it once used to be a major export port for the counties mining efforts as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach holds many surfing competitions throughout the year, and also hosts Run to the Sun over May Bank holiday, a VW and Custom Car Show. Both the Womens and Mens Gig Championships are held here, as well as a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub tropical gardens in the centre of the town.

Neighbouring Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. Fifteen Cornwall, founded by Jamie Oliver in 2002 sits on top of the two mile beach at Watergate offering inspirational views for the young chefs and professionals to create fantastic menus from local and seasonal produce. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous immensely pretty beaches for the less active. Trerice run by the National Trust is 3 miles outside of the town is an Elizabethan Manor House and Garden with restricted winter opening times.
