Just a couple of fantstic pictures of the recent storms to batter the Cornish coast, if any one fancies a storm watching weekend away in Cornwall, The Square House and Tall House make a great base for a self catering weekend away. Newquay is a fantastic place to base yourself with all of Cornwall and its many attractions within easy reach, we still have plenty of availbility for weekends before the peak season arrives. Thanks Tim & Anna

On Friday 29th November the wintry skies around Newquay Cornwall will be lit up by a riot of colour from a magical lantern parade; the official ‘switch on’ of the town’s Christmas lights; and a glittering fireworks display over the harbour. Which is only minutes away from our self catering accommodation the Square and Tall House.

 

Over one hundred amazing creations and their makers will be setting off from Narrowcliff at 7pm for the parade to light up the skies, accompanied by a music from the Indian Queens Town Band and a local Samba Band. They will journey along Cliff Road and East Street where they will be joined by none other than Father Christmas and his real-life reindeer who will be entertaining children at the Hotel Victoria from 3pm to 6.30pm.

 

Joined by the town’s Mayor, the lantern parade will light up Bank Street & Fore Street, before reaching the bottom of Marcus Hill. Here the town’s Christmas lights will officially be switched on at 7.30pm to the sounds of glorious carol singing. The evening’s celebrations will then culminate with a festive fireworks display over the harbour at 8.45pm.

Just over a week away.

The stars have aligned and the guys at Beach Break Live are creating something that hasn’t been seen or heard before. They are transforming Newquay into a 100-hour beach town fiesta like nothing before.


The Kingdom of Cornwall has lent us the most picturesque party town on the planet. Together with the UK’s premier artists, curators and mischief makers, they are presenting over 300 acts in many unique venues, from the Fistral Beach Main Stage, feverish DJ’s in epic clubs, breaking bands in y’olde pubs. Music & madness shall fill the beaches, the streets, the harbour, kebab shops and every other conceivable crevice.


Beach Break’s about more than just the tunes. Now we can take this up a gear with beach disco’s, surf, street art, comedy, more extreme sports than you can shake a stick at and tomfoolery galore.


Also we still have availability in The Tall House for that weekend, so if you looking for accommodation in Newquay get in touch we can do you a great deal on one of the best self catering holiday houses in Newquay.
