    • looking to relocate

      by dnye79 Online Now Dec 2, 2013 at 1:33 AM

      Hello all
      I have just accepted a job offer in Bodmin and due to the nature of the work do not want to live there. We have looked at many places throughout Cornwall and have agreed on Newquay. Problem is we do not know the area in depth, is there areas we should avoid buying a house? I don't want to come across as snooty but want to avoid the council housing estates and bring up the kids in a nice area.

      Harrington guest house + anyone recommend it please?

      by LouiseTopp Online Now Jan 11, 2010 at 7:19 AM

      On the last two weeks of June myself and my parents will be staying at the Harrington guest house in Newquay. I would like to hear from anyone else who has stayed there and what it is like? My parents are senior citizens and I read that anyone can run a six bedroomed guesthouse, and not be registered with the council or have any fire safety certificate which is a bit worrying.

      Please put my mind at rest before i send off the deposite? Many thanks.

      Halloween in Newquay

      by karen_mo Online Now Aug 26, 2008 at 5:45 AM

      Hi there,

      We always loved going to Newquay for New Year, been going for the last 10 years, but starting to feel it's changing (or we're just getting older perhaps!) and the original pub crawl/families out in fancy dress culture has gone a little more clubby. We were wondering if anyone has experience of Halloween and whether the town comes out in force like it does at New Year. Can you do a pub crawl without tickets? Is it a worth a little weekend visit? Would love your views!

      Thanks, Karen

      cottages or accommodation in newquay?

      by ben_england Online Now Mar 12, 2003 at 3:48 AM

      Hi guys- Has anybody got any suggestions for a group of (fairly poor) young people staying a weekend in Newquay? A cottage or nice hostel would be nice as the only other option we've had suggested is Sunnyside caravan park, which sounds like it's a fair way out of town. Near fistral would be absolutely ideal! Cheers in advance, Ben
