The historic Norman church at Newton was founded by the Knights of St John. St John's Well, situated on the green, is now host to all sorts of events including the new Annual Beer & Pop Festival.
Long walks down Beach Road leads to the glorious Newton sand dunes, a favourite for dog-walkers and runners alike. Further down is one of Europe's largest caravan and holiday homes sites, Trecco Bay.
Newton is also home to the Newton Institute, a great community led group that raises money for the maintenance and care of Newton.
As for pubs, most locals these days choose the newly refurbished Jolly Sailor or Ancient Brit, located just off the main green. Nearer to the petrol station you can find The Globe which serves a fantastic Sunday Roast.
