Cliff House's Blog

Welcome to Cliff House’s Blog!

Here you will find all of our blogs. We aim to show you all of the wonderful and exciting things that you can do in both Newquay and the surrounding areas. The time our guests spend with us varies, many of our guests stay for three to four days and often a week. Day trips are always a nice addition to a holiday and allow you to explore somewhere new. With Newquay being so well situated in Cornwall, a day out is never far away! We will be writing blogs on everything from restaurant reviews and bars to try, towns to explore and attractions to visit. 

We are currently focusing on an A-Z of Cornwall, where we shine a light on places all over Cornwall. In the blogs we have included everything from where to eat, what to do, how to get there and even parking. Scroll down and see the places we think you should see. Let us know by commenting on the blog post if you have been to any of the locations. We would love to hear your thoughts and if there is anything you think we have missed. We are always looking for new places to visit and include in our blogs. There are so many wonderful places and we are excited to introduce you to them.

We would love for you to contact us if you would like to do a guest blog, if there’s somewhere you think everyone should know about, contact us as our guests would love to know. Maybe you went to an amazing restaurant, a wonderful bar or an exciting attraction. Or have you found the next hidden gem in Cornwall?

Have a look at our blogs and see what you can get up to on your stay with us!
