The Cove Guesthouse is located in the outskirt of Newquay. Right across the street is a beautiful beach. Emma and Andy are the perfect hosts. Thanks for your hospitality! They upgraded us to another room with beachview. When we arrived we were welcomed with homemade cake in our room. The room as well as the bathroom are very nice, modern,...

What can I say, a fab weekend away in just a stunning part of the country. We decided to take a trip to Newquay to get away to celebrate our 4 years of being together. We chose the Cove as it was so near to the sea, something that I just love and it was the best choice ever. Andy...

The Cove was a brilliant place to start my first ever visit to Cornwall - Andy and Emma were so welcoming, the room was lovely with a comfy bed and very nice bathroom, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious! The Cove was so well located - right by beautiful Porth beach for a pre/post breakfast brisk walk or to enjoy...

This is a gem of a b&b. Bright, clean, ultra friendly. Unfortunately my room - i think it was #4 - was the only one without an ensuite. I had to go across a landing to a very lovely bathroom, admittedly, but all in all a very impressive accommodation. I'd give it 6 stars, but because of the bathroom issue...

Absolutely outstanding. If we are ever down here again this is where I will be. Super friendly arrival, gave us 5 minutes of his time to show/explain the local area which helped us not unknowledgable outsiders. The breakfast the next morning was amazing. Full Cornish with side of toast, cereals, and juices to accompany it nicely. Thanks for the great...

Our third visit to the Cove this year was blessed with warm dry weather which only added to the otherwise high satisfaction we experience each return visit. The original high standard of accommodation somehow still improves and customer care and attention make this B & B a MUST for all first time and returning visitors. See you in December Andy...

We stayed at The Cove this week for three nights. Andy and Emma were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very comfortable and very clean and the breakfast was excellent and there was plenty of choice. It was lovely to come back to the room each afternoon for and cup of coffee and find a...
