Step Inside

Waterside is set within the exclusive Corisande Manor located on the banks of the River Gannel. This split level apartment has been recently transformed with luxury in mind to create the perfect holiday base. Arrive to a large hallway leading into the hub of the home, the open plan living area which is dressed with soft greys, blue and copper tones, much of the furniture is inspired by the owners travels . From the moment you arrive, soak up the natural light from the many windows each framing the sea and river views perfectly and enjoy the sense of space with the original high manor ceilings.  The living space brings friends and family together with large corner sofa and attractive leather armchairs. The dining table can be dressed to impress for celebrations or kept simple for summer suppers and lazy breakfasts. The smart modern kitchen is fully fitted and well equipped inviting foodie aficionados to get creative, the characterful Fern Pit Cafe nearby sells freshly shored Lobsters for a true taste of Cornwall. The spacious cloakroom completes the ground floor layout. A central staircase leads to the first floor with 2 beautiful ensuite bedrooms. The master bedroom is a cool palette of coastal blues and warm yellow and is worthy of any boutique hotel with indulgent super king bed (zip/lock) and jackpot river views from every window. The second bedroom also offers a super king zip/lock bed. Both bedrooms are ensuite with contemporary fittings and luxury ambience.

From your Holiday Door

Throw open the double doors from the living space and enjoy the large decked wrap around balcony. From this private elevated position, take in the 180 degree seascapes from the winding River Gannel to the mouth of the estuary and the beautiful Crantock Beach. With the golden sands of North Cornwall, the River shines a brilliant blue at full tide setting the perfect Waterside scene. A large all weather dining table and chairs offers al fresco dining options, especially when the sun sets. Beyond Waterside, guests are welcome to enjoy the communal gardens that lead down the river bank. At low tide you can walk to Crantock Beach via the lowtide bridge or take the small water taxi at hightide. If surfing is on the agenda then you are well placed at Waterside, the world renowed beach of Fistral is just a walk away offering some of the best waves in the country. For an evening stroll then head up to Pentire Headland for a panoramic view of the coastline and welcome pre-dinner drink at The Lewinnick Lodge. North Cornwall is firmly on the foodie map with the wonderful restaurants Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth all within easy access or keep it simple with fish and chips on the quay in nearby Padstow.

If you are new to this corner of north Cornwall or it has long been a family favourite then enjoy exploring from the comfort of Waterside, a truly wonderful holiday home-from-home.

What a wonderful place Waterside is and the River Gannel is a stunning unexpected landscape. We have had such a relaxing time certainly hope to return.

Andrew & Maggie

This has been our first trip to Cornwall and it has been amazing. Waterside is an absolute jewel in Newquay. We have loved playing in the River Gannel and jumping off the rocks at the end of Pentire. The view from the balcony and bedroom is stunning. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful house.

Luke, Becky, Caleb & Charis

This was our second stay and we have already booked to come back, we absolutely love this place. In particular we enjoyed: Escape Surf School, Box & Barber for breakfast, Gustos, Sprout and The Lost Brewery - all fantastic independents.

Alan & Daniela

What a delight! We were here having a break and visiting our son who lives in Newquay for the surf! Incredible supper at The Fish House. We hope to return.

This is a wonderful place in a wonderful location. We knew the location well but this is a real find! Fantastic!

Beautiful house & beautiful views. Only one parking space when we had two cars, but Cornish Gems were very helpful in finding us a second available space to use.

A wonderful property spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. The location exceeded expectation.

We would recommend Cornish Gems to who ever is looking for something special.

Margaret Mannion

Waterside is an outstanding property that certainly has the wow factor and is set in a beautiful location. It offers a relaxed private location with views one can truly appreciate. Perfectly located on the quieter side of Newquay but within easy walking distance of all local amenities, and just a five minute walk from both Fistral and Crantock beach. Waterside is like a little piece of heaven, a place where you can relax and just enjoy the views, the only down side was having to leave.
