Keep reading for 5 reasons why Newquay is the perfect location for your workcation…
1. Work-life Balance
For office workers, the rise of the ‘Anyplace Workplace’ has offered a fresh perspective on the dull patterns to which we were once confined in our working lives. Endless days in the office, bland coffee, packed commuter trains/tubes/trams/traffic rattling us to and fro. Though we may have spent the last year missing family, friends and trips to the pub – you’d be hard pressed to find anyone missing those monotonous workdays. The opportunity to work without scrutiny, from anywhere, has been a blessing in disguise. With no commute to factor in, wake up to the sound of seagulls and fresh coastal light beaming through the window. Start your day how you want to. Take a stroll around the coast or enjoy an invigorating swim first thing. Why not keep an eye on the schedule at Oceanflow Yoga? Yoga on the beach is a great way to meet your work day.
2. The Sea
The glorious sea – the sight of it, the smell of it, the sound of it. When it comes to our wellbeing, being near the sea does wonders for our mental and physical health. Enjoy a takeaway coffee from Basket and stroll along the shoreline before firing up the laptop. Paddle your toes on your lunch break and enjoy fresh lungfuls of sea air. Head to Fistral Beach Bar after hours to enjoy a well-earned pint on their outside decking area, all while taking in uninterrupted sea views. Coming for a long weekend? Check out Escape Surf School for an unrivalled surf-lesson experience. Many of our gorgeous properties boast sublime views over the sea, your work is sure to benefit from bouts of inspiration!
3. Space to think
It’s of no consequence to your boss where you open up your laptop, as long a you’re doing a good job. And what makes you perform better than lots of space to gather your ideas? With fresh, beautiful scenery wherever you turn you’ll deliver your best yet from the comfort of one of our gorgeous properties, located along the North Cornish Coast. An exhilarating saunter along the South West Coast Path is sure to stir your motivation and have you looking at things from a brand new perspective. A swim at one of Newquay’s 12 beaches will conjure feelings of freedom seldom felt since the start of 2020.
4. Incredible Food
Though you may have Deliveroo at your fingertips at home, we’ll wager you don’t have freshly caught fish and locally sourced delights. Newquay is fast becoming a foodie haven, having welcomed a variety of new eateries in the last few years.

More than ever, we all deserve a break. Though we aren’t out of the woods yet, we can now finally see a little light at the end of the tunnel. The value of a change of scenery, a dip in the ocean, a shared experience (socially-distanced though it may stay for a while) is higher than ever.
