Rockpools overlooks Crantock village, it's beach and surrounding coastline. The ancient village of Crantock with its thatched cottages nestles behind the stunning and completely unspoiled Crantock Beach. The beach is fantastic for surfing, rock pooling, exploring caves and sledging down dunes. The BBC Coast team recognised Crantock Beach as the UK's best for 2013 - "Set at the bottom of a quintessentially English village with two charming pubs, you'll find the beach by wandering through the National Trust car park. Scale the looming dune and you'll be rewarded with a goose-pimple inducing view. To the right of the bay, the tidal River Gannel offers ferry runs from the beach to Fern Pit. Here you can order a cooked lobster, caught that morning, or opt for a stunning cliff top walk along the headland overlooking the bay." Seashells is the only letting property to share the view described by the coast team. The property is set in a large garden with a large decked area with sun loungers and BBQ and a secluded outdoor spa and separate gym. There are no visible neigbours other than cows, horses and rabbits. The property has a modern and spacious kitchen/dining room with a wood burning stove, central heating, 160mb fiber optic Internet to the property, smart TV, DVD/blu-ray player and comfy leather sofas. The bedrooms are en-suite with a double bed in one and twin bunks in the other. The property's elevated south facing position catches the sun from the moment it rises to the moment it sinks into the sea.

The West Country region
Cornwall has so much to explore. Two very contrasting coasts, world class gardens, the surfing, the wonderful walks (coastal, woodland and moor). Even in the height of summer there are empty coves and headlands in abundance.
The property overlooks the ancient village of Crantock and its beautiful Norman church, the dunes and beach. The village and church are nestled behind the sand dunes beyond which lies the ultimate family beach. There are caves, tunnels, old carvings, amazing rock pools, a tidal river with oak lined creek, ship wrecks, lobster pools, huge dunes to slide down and the best surf in the county. The Times newspaper named it Britain's best family beach.
The village is famous for its thatched cottages and round garden. There are two pubs in the heart of the village and a third a mile away on the headland with views of the coast.
Newquay is a short walk across the River Gannel at low tide or 10 mins by car. Newquay has some great restaurants, a very picturesque harbour, more stunning beaches, lots of rainy day action (zoo, water park and new multiplex cinema) and a fairly crazy night life.
There are several very good golf courses nearby and every type of fishing possible in the UK
Most of the ocean that can be seen from Lismore House is shortly going to become a marine reserve. With a pair of good binoculars you can spot seals, dolphins, basking sharks and clouds of dive bombing gannets from the property.
