Just outside the front door of Crest Court Is the Killacourt. Until the 1920s, this was a wooded area, and the name may be from the Celtic Killas and Quoit, meaning grove and burial site. When the woods were cleared, this fabulous view emerged.
Today it is a central part of any holiday in Newquay.
Killacourt 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, 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 you will see this is an area that sticks closely to sound ecological principles. The shops are ethical shops, the pathway is recycled plastic they even have a water refill station to help cut single-use plastic.

On The Crescent

On The Rocks

Bars And Pubs
Bars And Pubs

On The Rocks is our local – free pool tables; patio overlooking the bay; Sport on TV; excellent music; dog and people-friendly.
There is no food (but we have had takeaways delivered here). Dogs must be on a lead, but nobody says if it has to be attached to you. It is mainly locals here, and the staff may be playing Jenga or pool, but On The Rocks is a great night out, especially if you keep it local with Cornwall’s very own Dead Man’s Fingers Rum (the coffee rum is fantastic).

On The Rocks has the 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 Glass Unit 4


Fused and Stained glass studio offering bespoke designs, standard designs, fused glass work, gifts, objects of desire
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, it’s not surprising that most of her beautiful glass artwork has a taste of the sea

Earring Cabin Unit 1


At the Earring Cabin, you can watch as they create unique, handcrafted jewellery that is affordable and beautiful. They use nickel-free silver, freshwater pearls, sea glass and Swarovski crystal to design fun pieces with a definite feel of the sea. With prices starting at £5.50, you can afford to treat yourself.

Nearly New(quay) Clothing Company Unit 6


Not packing the right clothes for the weather? then, Nearly New(quay) was made for you. Full of quality, branded, pre-loved fashion at bargain prices.
Buying from here isn’t just about saving money, it’s also about saving the planet. Throwing away good clothes is a waste of precious resources. Clothing manufacturing is one of our highest polluting industries, and most fashion pieces have only been worn a handful of times.
Wear your rescued fashion with pride.

Tea And Leaves Unit 3


Tea & Leaves believes in more than just giving you tea and letting you leave; they believe tea can leave you with more than what you came for!
They are a small, independent tea shop with a big imagination. Their blends are always beyond basic, and they believe tea is a feeling.
Their leaves (houseplants) are rejuvenated, re-loved, or rescued; they prefer an ethos as heart-warming as they are. Tea And Leaves’ packaging is as eco and friendly as they are.
Talk to Barrie about his teas, and you will be listening to someone who is not just a passionate enthusiast but a real expert. If Hanna is in, then you can chat plants. When the sun is shining, she will probably be missing, driving the vintage Pink Flamingo ice cream van or coaching for WOW (wide open water). So if you see her in the shop, make the most of the opportunity to learn about her plants, all of which have a name!

The Roasting Room


Just past the stage at the bottom end of Killacourt is what looks like a nice shed. The Roasting Room is not in a posh-looking building, and you could easily pass it by.
Please don’t miss out on this fantastic cafe! It is another of Newquay’s home grown Coffee shops. Coffee won’t grow here, but the next best thing must surely be coffee roasted here.
Olly sharpened his skills as a coffee roaster in New Zealand before starting to do 4 kg roasts in the shop window of the Bank St shop. Now he and his partner Loz have a roastery and cafe in Prow Park catering to a growing online presence. Take some back with you or order it when you get home.
Call in and try some: it is a bit special. I can’t give you tasting notes for it as it varies depending on what Olly has been roasting, but I can tell you it will be top quality.
Grab a sourdough toastie or waffle to go with it while you watch the waves breaking on the beach. A simple pleasure that will help make your holiday memorable.
Another reason to visit The Roasting Room is that their green credentials are second to none. Their packaging is home compostable: the gold standard of recyclable food packaging.

Bodyboard - Depot Unit 12


We have 2 Newquay-made Dick Pearce belly boards in the apartment for our guests to use, and they are great fun, but you may want to take the next steps in this international sport. If you do, head to the Bodyboard – Depot and talk to the experts. These guys don’t try to flog the tourists’ cheap rubbish that will end up broken and polluting our seas by the end of the week. These are dedicated professionals who work with world-class bodyboarders to produce fantastic boards and equipment. Their green credentials are impressive as well as they work with Mossy Earth to offset their carbon footprint and are responsible for planting over 3,000 trees.

By The Sea Jewellery Unit 2


Buying jewellery for your loved one is always a romantic gesture that is usually much appreciated. You can purchase jewellery with just a few clicks on your computer and have it packaged and delivered within a few days. That’s an easy way to sort out any gift issues you may have.
Is that enough for the big occasions in your life or for that special person?
How about that sea glass you both found walking on Towan? Would that make a more romantic ring? Is that ring your family has had for generations able to be restyled for more modern tastes?
It doesn’t have to be a special occasion because beautiful hand-made Cornish jewellery will always be appreciated by people who recognize style and quality.
Talk to Sam if you want something made with skill and passion.

Kelsey Unit 10


Advertising has seduced us into buying shower gel. It’s time to get away from this wasteful way of washing and move to a more environmentally friendly option. Kelsey produces quality products backed by a robust ethical ethos.
Kelsey Cornish offers a beautiful range of natural and vegan soaps, handmade in Cornwall in small batches using the traditional cold process method. All are made with natural, skin-loving oils and nut butters, making them suitable for even the most sensitive skin! They also make shampoo bars, foaming whipped soap, bath salts, shaving and beard products, and even gift sets!

Trudi Derwent Illustrations Unit 11


Go to The Fish House restaurant, which we recommend, and you will see some of Trudis’ art on the walls. Here you have hit the Mother-load.
Not surprisingly, as a born and bred Cornish artist, most of her art is influenced by the sea. Search out the Cornish Puffling paintings – they’re loads of fun. If you want fun art for your living room wall or an unusual gift for your loved ones, Trudi can help.
Trudi is also one of the growing band of people fighting against the misuse of plastic and who reuses items whenever possible.
