Fab location!

Although technically in Newquay this pub occupies a spectacular cliff top position and is well away from the hustle and bustle of Newquay. On a clear day you can see across Fistral to Trevose Point light house. Dog friendly so a good stop off point if you are walking the coast path. Be aware that it can get quite busy during peak times - best time of the year to visit it is away from the main summer when the fire will be lit and you'll have a choice of where to sit. Great restuarant too and don't forget to visit its sister pub The Plume of Feathers at Mitchell which may not have the same spectacular location but is just as good - great food in stylish surroundings.

Stunning Views

The Lewinnick occupies a great position on its own out on Pentire Headland, which sticks out between Fistral and Crantock beaches. It makes a welcome respite from the hectic town centre and the views are superb, looking back across to Fistral beach and the striking, Gothic, Headland Hotel (if the hotel looks familiar it's probably because it was featured in the film of Roald Dahl's The Witches) and on up Cornwall's rugged north coast toward Watergate Bay.

Evening Drinks

Very good pub, out of the town so escapes the rat race. Has a large balcony with good views over Fistral and for watching the summer sun set. Good food from bar snacks to 3 course meals. My pub of choice whenever I'm in Newquay.

Nearest beach

Great and Little Toddy Coves (¼ mile)

These sand and rock beaches are located just off the famous Fistral Beach, at the Pentire end, they are popular with families because of their sheltered location.

Nearest walk

Newquay to Watergate Bay (1 ¼ miles)

It is best to park in the area around The Great Western Hotel and pick up the coastal path heading north all the way to Watergate Bay. The views of the Atlantic are terrific, backed up by some dramatic high cliffs and sandy beaches. Dogs are allowed on the paths but do take care as the cliffs are high. Beach access is limited for dogs during summer but some do allow them during the winter months. Further details about dog friendly beaches can be found on the Cornwall-beaches.co.uk website and it is recommended that you check this before you set off. Watergate Bay is a two mile stretch of golden sands and you can stop over at Jamie Olivers Fifteen Restaurant before the return leg. This walk is a 6 mile round trip. Take a look at the i.walk.cornwall website for a detailed route and other great scenic walks in the area.

Nearest town

Crantock (¾ mile)

The village of Crantock is surrounded by miles of coastal paths and stunning beaches. With picturesque thatched cottages, an art gallery, an antique shop and tea rooms the village itself is delightful. The River Gannel flows out at Crantock Beach from a mile-long estuary. An important site for native and migrating birds the area is a haven for wildlife.

I went to the 2015 Boardmasters and it was fantastic. Brilliantly organised, The line up was varied and interesting with some classics like Faithless and Reef together with and up and comers like the stunning Rag and Bone man. I love the little View stage perched on the cliff over looking Watergate Bay beneath you. Its a breathtaking way to watch live music. I saw a young singer songwriter called Josh Mac from Brighton who was simply brilliant . The festival is starting to feel like a real festival now with its own personality created by fab venues like The Keg and Pasty, a pub Filled to the roof with pasties and cider... perfect.

A lovely treat

We visited Fifteen with our 3yr old and her 78yr old grandma, and both loved the food, setting and attentive but relaxed service. We all enjoyed the fantastic food, with a well-priced children's menu and are glad we booked weeks ahead!

Fantastic Food at Fifteen

We have had excellent food here whether it's lunch or dinner. Do not be put off by the 'taster menu only' for dinner - there is plenty of choice. We would go just for the Italian olives - they are a great start while studying the menu. The atmosphere is very informal and the views are fantastic. The staff are attentive, enthusiatic and clearly well-trained. We would go for the food experience alone.

The open kitchen layout means you can watch your food being prepared, but it's more likely you'll find yourself staring at the stunning views of the coast stretching down towards Newquay. A great setting for some great food - the octopus salad was delicious, as was the chocolate nemesis.

This is a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy with friends and/or family. Lovely lunches or posh nosh in the evening. This restaurant is one not to missed with great views over the beach and within easy reach of Newquay airport. If rice pudding is still on the menu you must try it. It's not the pud as we all know it ......

Crantock Beach (¾ mile)

Looked after by the National Trust, Crantock Beach takes in sweeping views of the Pentire headlands and the endless horizon. Enjoying huge swathes of golden sand and hugged by banks of sand dunes, Crantock Beach is a truly magical spot. Whether you love to surf, paddle or simply relax, find your own little corner of Crantock and take in the spectacular scenery.

Lovely beach fab boarding

Fab beach, has got the best walk to a beach ever. Take the road opposite the cottage, not the main road. A lovely walk past some beautiful houses and through the dunes beats taking the car and dogs can go on the beach, hooray !!

Fistral's relaxed neighbour

Separated from the surfing Mecca of Fistral by Pentire Headland and the Gannel River, Crantock is a little less high profile than its neighbour, but still draws the crowds in summer. A lovely, big, wide flat expanse of sand backed by sand dunes, it's popular with families, and long-boarders when surf conditions are right. At low tide you can cross the Gannel River at the eastern end of the beach to the Fern Pit cafe where you can try some of the sweetest crab meat in the world. At high tide the Fern Pit ferry runs the short distance across the Gannel between Crantock and Pentire.

Perranporth Beach (5 miles)

Say Perranporth to anyone from Cornwall and they will immediately know where you mean. A popular family-friendly beach on the edge of Perranporth town, Perranporth Beach is a huge three-mile belt of golden sand meeting an expanse of blue sea. A hit amongst all ages, Perranporth appeals to all, from sports enthusiasts looking to hit the waves to sun-lovers ready to kick back in the sand. A natural sea pool by Chapel Rock means that everyone of all abilities can enjoy the water and lifeguards are on duty in the summer. Dogs on leads are allowed year-round and all facilities are available nearby.

Family Beach

Lovely beach, if you walk a bit further round its less busy and loads of room for the kids to run around. The only problem we occurred was some people not controlling their dogs, mind the majority were well behaved.

Amazing Beach!

This beach and the surrounding area are great! If you don't fancy getting your feet covered in sand then the benches and grass areas overlooking the beach are great to sit and have a picnic. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Mr Henthorn April 2009

Superb for the Family

This is a great beach the whole family can enjoy. Three miles of sand. Great for surfing, sandcastle building, lifeguarded swimming areas and easy access to nearby facilities including plenty of places to hire or buy a wetsuit. Can get crowded on sunny days in the summer.
On windy days the nearby Trevaunance Cove (South) or Holywell (North) can often be more sheltered.
Dogs can be walked on the beach here year round.
Nudists from Army Camp lurk at the far North End.

Newquay Zoo (1 ¾ miles)

From African lions to zebras, Cornwall’s award-winning zoo is home to over 300 animals. There's plenty to do, with daily feeding times and talks, a play area, maze, picnic spots, a cafe and, in summer, bbq's by the lake. Young animal lovers can sign up to be a junior zookeeper for the day.

Newquay Zoo is worth a visit however it is a little on the small side and you do get around quite quickly. However if you take the trail, go around the maze and have lunch/picnic then it does fill a morning/afternoon quite nicely. There are lots of animals for the kids to see and various interesting talks throughout the day. Would recommend the food in the café we had a lovely lunch there.

We came here on a damp and drizzly day but the zoo didn't disappoint. It is small but there is a kids trail to do on the way round and interesting talks about the animals. The kids loved that they could pay 50p and feed the penguins!! I would recommend it for a day out but be aware that it isn't big and therefore if you didn't want to spend time doing the trail etc, you could be finished fairly quickly.

Lots to do at Newquay Zoo!

Although comparatively small, this is reflected in the price and there is still plenty to do to make a worthwhile day out. The zoo is well landscaped throughout, with further improvements currently being carried out, making for a lovely walk if nothing else! The animals all looked healthy and were easy to see, and we were given a map, some vouchers and a timetable of the talks/shows upon entry. Considering we went out-of-season, on a very cold February morning, there were at least five feeding times/talks to go and see throughout the day, plenty of picnic benches and a cafe (although the little food stalls dotted around were closed), plus a small shop, packed full of animal-related bits and pieces. All in all, a worthwhile trip out on a budget!

if you've got kids this is a good place to take them if the weather turns. It is quite small but in school hols they put on lots of entertainment and it is generally pretty interesting.

Friendly little zoo, right next to the swimming centre and skate park for those groups with a mix of interests. You won't see the range of animals you expect at the larger zoos, but those that are there are happy and well cared for. You won't see penguins, tapirs, lions and lynx anywhere else in Cornwall!
