Guest quote from April 2013;
The size, comfort and facilities of Carpe Diem made our holiday. Everything was excellent quality and the cottage
decorated to a high standard. The location is perfect for the beach, the village or for visiting other areas of
Cornwall. We were very sorry to have to leave .

Crantock is a picturesque village of historical note, on the North coast of Cornwall with one of the best beaches in the area. It has an ancient church, two pubs a tea rooms, an art gallery, gift shop and a village store.
It is only five miles from Newquay, but a world apart. It is popular with families in the summer and people who wish to surf, walk and enjoy all Cornwall has to offer all year round.
Crantock is the site of an altogether much older settlement - Langurroc, which means the 'dwelling of the monks'. The village gets it name from the Celtic Saint Caranog, who is also known as Carantoc. It is suggested that Crantock was founded by St.Carantacus in the 5th century, who was the son of a Welsh chieftain, and established his church. The present church is reputed to be built upon the same site.
Crantock and Polly Joke beaches:
Crantock Beach is a great beach for families and surfers alike. It has a wide sandy beach with sand dunes between the beach and the village. At low tide you can walk along the beach to West Pentire.
Polly Joke beach is the next beach around the coast going west. It has been described as one of the best beaches in Cornwall. It has to be walked to, making it less busy than other beaches in Summer.
Pubs and Eating
Crantock has two pubs, the Cornishman and The Old Albion Inn, which are a short walk from the properties in Crantock Village. The Bowgie Inn, in West Pentire, is a short walk from Cormorant, Guillemot and Kittiwake. In Cubert, 2 miles from Crantock, the Smugglers Den, has a reputation for good food and wine.
The area is well served for daily attractions for children. There are attractions at Dairyland, Newquay Zoo, Llamaland. The best days out are the old fashioned ones .......... exploring the beach, rock-pooling and hiding in the dunes!
There is fantastic surfing to be had on both Crantock and Polly Joke beaches. No need to take the car out, just walk to the beach and then walk back.
