Newquay Perranporth North Cornwall
Cubert is a quiet village located just five miles from the busy seaside resort of Newquay. It's within walking distance from the beautiful Holywell Bay and its smaller neighbour Porth Joke (locally known as Polly Joke), and just a few miles from the popular village of Crantock with its fantastic beach. The village is home to a small shop in its centre, along with a 16th century thatched pub The Smugglers Den Inn, serving local food and real ales and a seafood restaurant, 'Offshore'.

Cubert is surrounded by farmland with ancient grazing rights onto Cubert Common, a large expanse of rough grassland popular destination with walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. The common is home to a variety of plants, insects and birds. After Cubert Common towards the sea, walkers can experience the Iron Age fort cared for by the National Trust. Wildlife is in abundance and thanks to a recent conservation project the Cornish Chough, once extinct to the area has now been re-established. In addition seals can often be viewed at Chick Rock between the beaches of Polly Joke and Holywell Bay. This area is great family location on a sunny day.

Cubert village’s history is heavily linked to religion. The name Cubert comes from the Welsh missionary St Cubert who, along with St Carantoc spread Christianity to this area of north Cornwall. The 14th century stone church in the centre of Cubert is the result of St Cubert’s success, and has stood since as a tribute to his work. Cubert is surrounded by a network of footpaths and because of Cubert’s close location to the coast, a walk down to a choice of four beaches including Perranporth, Holywell, Polly Joke and Crantock is a great idea and easy to do.

There are just two A-roads linking the village, the more commonly used of the two links Cubert to the A3075 which is the main road between Newquay and Chiverton Cross, a large roundabout which is a junction for many of Cornwall’s main roads, such as the A30. This allows for quick and easy transport from Cubert to a large number of typically Cornish towns and villages such as Truro, Perranporth and many more, making Cubert a great place to stay.
