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... More

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... More

Great little guesthouse just up from the beach. Very friendly owners who go over and above to help you out and are full of local knowledge, lovely little personal touches including homemade cake in your room - yummy! Spotless room, good size, good bed and smart seaside decor. Bathroom a little outdated and the shower wasn't amazing but again spotlessly... More

The Cove is the perfect way to visit the Newquay area - removed from the bustle of town but with easy access to a local pub, nearby restaurants and back into the town center. Overlooks its very own fabulous beach with cliff walking paths. Delightful room and engaging hosts.
