Cornwall is an excellent place to eat and drink. It has everything from the local Cornish pasty (available everywhere!) through to award-winning restaurants, such as Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver..
The National Trust own many beaches, gardens and houses in Cornwall.
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, 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 its 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 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.
Dogs and Walks:
We are dog-friendly and allow well behaved dogs in most of our cottages. Click here for details on our dog- friendly approach.
There are many walks for dog owners near Crantock, including the South West Coastal Path, which passes by the village and can be reached on foot from all our cottages.
Newquay, shopping and a big supermarket:
There is a large Safeway supermarket about 5 minutes drive out of the village towards Newquay. Crantock is about 5 miles south of Newquay, which in the summer is a bustling holiday resort with shops, many clubs and pubs. There is a regular bus service to Newquay and taxis can be booked.
In Crantock there is a village store that provides many of a holiday maker's essential needs.
Many of our guests go online to order their shopping before they leave.
