The Newquay Surf School 2021 Ultimate Accommodation Guide

The ultimate list of places to stay in Newquay in 2021 for families, friends and couples learning to surf.

‍


With Newquay more popular than ever, the demand for all types of accommodation is high. Last summer, the demand completely outstripped supply. On some days in August you couldn't book a hotel room nor find an Airbnb anywhere in Newquay.

All the signs are showing that this will happen again. The most common request we had via email and phone last summer was for recommendations for places to stay.

So here's our Places to Stay in Newquay guide to help you pick the right stay when you arrive for your surf lessons. Whether you've never been before or are a regular, we hope you'll find something for you.

The following stays are places that our regular guests have stayed in and rate highly. Whether you're booking as a young family, a couple or a group of friends, there is something for everyone.

Let's get stuck in.

‍

So it gets very popular in the summer months with people wanting to surf away from the overcrowded Newquay Town beaches.
