I’ve stayed at Base Surf Lodge twice now. Once solo, the second time with with a friend. Both were fun experiences. It’s an ideal place to stay in Newquay. The lodge is clean, well facilitated, and very homely and relaxing. Rob and Lou are perfect hosts and are happy to give local and surf advice. I’ve found it very easy to arrange and ideal for a surf weekend/trip. The location is very close to Fistral and bays, as well as the town, so everything you need is in walking distance. There’s good hire options for surf equipment at the lodge. I’ve had surf lessons with on site surf school (with Lou) which are fantastic and makes planning stress-free. She’s a great coach and tailors advice to the individual. Both the lodge and the surf coaching are highly recommended.
