Just outside the front door of Crest Court Is the Killacourt. Up until the 1920s this was a wooded area and the name may be from the Celtic Killas and Quoit meaning grove and burial site. Once the woods were cleared this fabulous view emerged.
Today it is a central part of any holiday in Newquay.
This is where you can bring your breakfast or afternoon tea and watch the boats leaving the harbour, the waves crashing against Jago’s island do some holiday shopping ,have a pizza , have a sauna or just people watch.
Mr Pringle loves to socialise here first thing in the morning before a hard day on the beach.
Take a closer look and you will see that this is an area sticking closely to sound ecological principles . The shops are ethical the pathway is recycled plastic they even have a water refill station to help cut single use plastic.
Market on Killacourt
If you are staying with us on the last Sunday of the month then the farmers market is a must.
Local, sustainable, ethical and interesting is the criteria for being accepted for a spot on the market.

On The Rocks
This is our local – free pool tables; patio overlooking the bay; Sport on TV; excellent music; dog and people friendly.
No food (but we have had takeaways delivered here). Dogs must be on a lead, but the lead doesn’t necessarily have to be attached to you. Mainly locals in here and the staff may be playing Jenga or pool but it’s a great night out especially if you keep it local with Cornwall’s very own Dead Man’s Fingers Rum (the coffee rum is amazing).
Huge advantage of being very close to the apartment.
We can’t do it justice in a few sentences on a website, but it’s our favourite, so why not go there, make a night of it and absorb the atmosphere.

Dreya moved to Cornwall when she was 9 years old and fell in love with it. An ex international kite surfer who reached the rank of 3rd in the world and held a world record for kitesurfing from Cornwall to Ireland. With credentials like that its not surprising that most of her beautiful glass art work has a taste of the sea

If you have spent any time in Newquay you will probably have noticed a strong ecological awareness amongst the business community. This strong set of ethics probably stems from the early days of surf culture in Newquay but is now driven by a much more aware customer base that demands accountability and “green” credentials from its purchases.
You can be sure that your children’s clothes and shoes purchased from Chuko are not only fashionable and well made but that they are morally produced in a sustainable manner.
Chat to Liane about her philosophy and find out how her clothing is vegan, produced in an eco-friendly way, 100% recyclable, made using ethical labour and phthalates free.
We have a choice as consumers lets make that choice count .

Nearly New(quay) Clothing Company
Not packed the right cloths for the weather? Nearly New(quay) was made for you. Full of quality, branded, pre loved fashion at bargain prices.
This isn’t just about saving money this is also about saving the planet. Throwing away perfectly good cloths is a huge waste of precious resources . Clothing manufacturing is one of our highest polluting industries and most fashion pieces are only worn a handful of times.
Wear your rescued fashion with pride.
