The Site
Measuring approximately 0.584 acres / 0.236 hectares, the site is currently occupied by a derelict, former hotel; The Fistral Bay Hotel, believed to have been built in 1910. Originally a two-storey property, a third storey was added in 1912, and during the Second World War it was one of several large hotels in Newquay requisitioned as a convalescent hospital for the Army, Air Force, and Navy. The hotel ceased trading in 2006 after nearly 100 years of business.

Newquay has been a major tourist destination for more than a century, principally on account of its coastline with nine long and accessible sandy beaches, including Fistral. Around 22,000 people live in Newquay, but the population can increase to 100,000 or more in the summer.

Situated in the favoured Pentire area of Newquay, the site is ideally located for the renowned Fistral Beach; a venue for major international surfing competitions as well as the acclaimed Boardmasters Festival. Other renowned events include Newquay fish festival, Newquay Art-8 festival, Newquay carnival, and the annual Night Surf.
