Can anyone recommend a holiday cottage near the north coast of Cornwall,between Portreath and Newquay? A quiet location preferred, up to about 10 miles inland and either 2 or 3 bedrooms.

If you can't recommend a cottage, can anyone recommend a website? It is for the school summer holiday and I appear to have left it a bit late!

Not sure if it is what you are looking for but we stayed here 2 years ago and it was lovely. It is in a (very) quiet location and the stairs were quite steep so I guess it depends on the age of your children.

But if not, there are plenty of others to choose from on this website.

Hadn't noticed the date of your OP, Abbey - glad you found something anyway smile

(Was that this summer just gone? What was your weather like?)

It was August-the weather was wet! Apparently every week in August was wet! However we did a lot of surfing and it didn't matter in a wet suit!

I thought spring would be OK, as I'd be prepared for it to be wet and if its nice it will be a bonus.

I know there are loads of cottages out there, but its almost too large a choice. I just wanted to know if anyone could recommend a specific place to me as a starting point.

Thanks for any suggestions and also for the tip off about the 10% discount.
