With enough space to sleep two cricket teams and enough fun to knock you all for six, Edge 17 sits on the edge of England and at the cutting-edge of stylish living. It’s a mecca for stags, hens and reunions within a seasplash of Newquay’s sunkissed beaches.
Eight modern bedrooms, complete with crisp linen, rolltop baths and power showers, supply the energy to party hard. When your batteries are depleted, repair with popcorn to the giant-screen movie room. No rustling of sweet wrappers, mind.
Eat in, eat out. The kitchen’s the size and shape of an offshore sub. All chip in and we’ll cater for you, or you can muck in and have a go yourself. As dusk falls, head on out to one of England’s premier party playgrounds.
There’s room here to pile onto squishy sofas, fire up the wall TV and catch the big match. If you need a subs’ bench, the footstool cubes will do just fine.
There’s space at Edge 17 to muck in and be a part of things, but plenty of spaces to escape alone or in groups. The prospect of an eight-ball on the pool table or a 180 on the dartboard should keep the competitive happy.
There’s plenty uptime to be had around the lights and sights of buzzing Newquay, but the cinema room’s the place to down tools and chill over a bag of boiled sweets and a beverage or two.
With a monster screen and authentic cinema seats, we’ve got all the magic of the movies without leaving the house. Dim the lights, break out the popcorn and roll the projector. Well, Blu-Ray.
When you hear the call of the gulls and taste the salt in the air, you might simply want to stock up on steaks, load up on lagers and hit the sitting area and hot tub outside.
But if you fancy paying homage to local lad Rick Stein’s seared scallops or shellfish soup, the kitchen’s bright, breezy and big as an Atlantic submarine. If that’s just not you, let it be us. Call up our chefs and we’ll whistle up a Waldorf salad or a winter warmer.
Need a take-away, a night out or a pub meal? Newquay is alive with culinary options, from gastro pubs to bistros to Indians and Chinese, and piratical pubs thrown in. Or maybe just cheery fish and chips on the harbour wall.
For finer dining, Padstow’s just 22 minutes by car. Get on the A roads for A-rated menus, Michelin-starred menus at Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 and fillet of pollock or Cornish lamb at Rick Stein’s.
When you’re here to party, bedrooms might seem like an afterthought, but nothing eases a bad head like soft sheets and a window open to the crash of the waves and the call of the gulls.
Edge 17 has beds enough for a couple of cricket teams. They’re slick and modern, with lights that hang low, deep duvets and desks for pulling out your laptop and diving into the wifi.
You’ve eight bedrooms to squabble over: four doubles, two twins and two bunk rooms. Whichever you choose, you’ll enjoy power showers or rolltop baths in four sumptuous bathrooms. Freshen up, fling on your party clothes and fire yourself up for another night in England’s answer to Ibiza.
