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 snack or just people watch.
Mr Pringle loves to socialise here first thing in the morning before a hard day on the beach.
