I think in our mind’s eye, when we think about going to the coast, we all hanker after an idyllic scene of us sleeping on the beach. Common sense tends to prevail though and we remember that it might get nippy at about 4am, where’d we put our precious belongings, how do you get all the sand out of your clothes if you’re sleeping on the sand – and what’ll happen if it rains.
Well, now there’s a perfect solution: Sleep on the Beach at Newquay – for grown ups who just like things to be a little more luxurious!
Why look for a room close to the beach, when you can stay ON the beach? You cannot find accommodation in Newquay that’s closer to the beach than the Tolcarne Beach Surf Shacks/Beach Huts.
Tolcarne Beach have a couple of great beach huts, or surf shacks as they’re re-labelled. These surf shacks are practically on the beach as you get a little bit of terracing for yourself, then it’s the low wall with the beach right on the other side. And these are beach huts with a difference – you can sleep in them. Most beach huts are for day-hire only, with a wooden bench inside at best. Tolcarne’s modern surf shacks were designed for sleeping in – and contain four snug bunks.
Your other creature comforts are met in the Tolcarne beach complex, just a few steps away – so it’s full of win!
You can hire a surf shack for a day/night, a weekend, or even an entire week and be living on the beach.
There are six surf shacks in total, each is 12’x8′ and provides you with the basics:
* Insulated pine shacks
* Comfortable bunks suitable for four adults
* Linen/duvets included
* An electric light
* Small storage cabinet with four compartments
* A fresh water tap outside
There’s a small kitchen area next door, shared by the shack guests – as well as a toilet/shower block for the exclusive use of the shacks.
All you have to do is turn up with your swimming gear and a towel – you can hire surfboards etc on Tolcarne itself, so you don’t even have to wrestle a board down to where you’re staying!
