About Newquay

Newquay’s history is a vast and varied one. From it’s humble beginnings as the fishing community of “Towan Blystra”, through to one of the Country’s foremost tourist destinations, Newquay guarantees to have something for everyone.

Of course, the first thing people think of is the stunning coastline. Newquay has 5 beaches within walking distance of the town – Lusty Glaze, Tolcarne, Great Western, Towan and Fistral, home of some of the best surfing waves in Europe.

The town itself boasts all the amenities to ensure you have a pleasant stay, and everything you need. A full shopping area is just a few minutes walk from the guest house, as well as numerous bars, and quality restaurants to tantalise your taste buds.

Hendra Holiday Park is just 20 minutes walk from Newquay’s hidden jewel – Trenance Gardens. Here you have the Heron Tennis Centre, Newquay Zoo, Children play areas, Waterworld Swimming Pool and Gym as well as the beautiful gardens and boating lake – well worth a visit.

Newquay is well connected by roads, and also public transport. There are a number of reliable taxi services we can also recommend. Above all however, the views speak for themselves, and this combined with the multitude of activities to keep you entertained prove why Newquay has been the UK’s favourite holiday destination for years.



The Beer Festival Location – Hendra Holiday Park

Hendra Holiday Park is a five star caravan park and campsite, which has been run by the same family for two generations – and is now the home to the annual Newquay Beer Festival.

Set within acres of Cornish Countryside on the outskirts of Newquay, it’s minutes away from the town and beaches that the resort has to offer complete with great transport links.

As for the park itself, there is a great range of facilities available for those who choose to stay. Pitches are available with, or without power at great value prices, and can accomodate everything from a small tent, right the way up to a caravan or motorhome.

And if you stay, you also get access to the great facilities the park has to offer, including the entertainment, kids club, and discounted admission to the Oasis Fun Pool.
