Crantock

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 room, 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 a 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. Crantock beach is lifeguard patrolled so that swimmers can enjoy both swimming and the excellent surf, being the next beach along from Newquay's famous, championship surfing Fistral beach.

Polly Joke beach is the next beach around the coast going west. It has been described as one of the best beaches in Cornwall. Accessible only by foot makes it less busy than other beaches in Summer.

Pubs and Eating.
Crantock village has two pubs, the Old Albion Inn and the Cornishman, which are a short walk from Waylands. The Bowgie Inn, in West Pentire, is a walkable 1 mile away. It has a stunning setting for eating or enjoying a few drinks after a walk on the beautiful headland or the unspoiled beaches. In Cubert, 3 miles from Crantock, is the Smugglers Den, a beautiful 16th century thatched pub which has a reputation for good food and wine.

Walks.
There are numerous walks around Crantock, from stunning coastal walks to woodland walks, At low tide there is a lovely walk across the River Gannel to Pentire Head, Fistral beach and Newquay. Or at high tide there is a summer ferry across the river.

Newquay, Shopping and a Big Supermarket.
There is a large Morrisons supermarket about 5 minutes drive out of the village towards Newquay. Crantock is about 5 miles south-west 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 Truro from just outside our cottage.

In Crantock there is a village store and post office that provides many of your essential needs.

We use Tesco Online to order our shopping to be delivered on arrival.

“Perfect”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2016

Waylands is a beautiful cottage with spacious characterful rooms equipped with everything we needed for a lovely week with extended family. With rather cool and rainy weather, we spent a lot of time in the conservatory, but still managed to make good use of the barbecue. Crantock has everything - a great beach, where the youngsters enjoyed surfing and bodyboarding and gentle swimming in the river. Two good pub/restaurants and a very well-stocked village shop. Wonderful walks round the headlands. We hardly needed a car. Housekeeper Tracy was very helpful in finding and returning to us a small but valuable item which got left behind after our visit. Highly recommended.

“Fabulous”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2016

We have just returned home, having spent two wonderful weeks here. The location of Waylands is ideal, easy to find on the edge of the village with short walks to shop, pubs, playground and beach and what a beach it is! Safe, well-marshalled and facilities nearby. Lovely flat sand and creeks for children to play safely away from the main stretch of sea. The cottage itself is stunning and very spacious with more than enough room for our party of eight, which included three children under the age of eight. The four double bedrooms are of excellent size. A very well-equipped kitchen and a superb new upstairs bathroom. The second bathroom and toilet downstairs is ideal, especially for those with young children who always want the toilet as soon as an adult steps into the shower The garden is to die for! Very private and very safe with hidden surprises. The seating area and barbecue in the garden are great. We only wish we had had more time to spend in it but as the weather was so good we always seemed to be out and about. The advantage of on site parking is also a bonus. Anyone looking for a fabulous place to stay in Crantock need look no further than Waylands.

“Fantastic Cottage in a beautiful village”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

We stayed for one week in this lovely cottage in July 2016. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 4 children, the cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing break. 4 large double bedrooms, a newly fitted bathroom and kitchen as well as a lovely garden which the kids loved. There are two nice pubs in the village along with a shop and post office. The beach is fantastic and only a short walk from the cottage. Would highly recommend!

“Smart and yet characterful”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2013

We had a wonderful time at Waylands. The cottage excellent value for money. It was spacious, well kitted out, smart and yet full of character. It is located well for exploring the various beaches nearby (Porth Joke being a favourite) and the beautiful coastline. The only downside was a bit or a sore head from bumping it on the low beams, but it's all part of cottage living and you soon get to know where to duck! We would certainly consider returning in the future.

“Lovely cottage in a fantastic location”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2013

We stayed at the cottage for a week in March. The cottage is situated in the delightful village of Crantock. The beach at Crantock is a real gem and we enjoyed walking from here to Fistral beach and eventually into Newquay harbour. We also enjoyed walking at St Agnes Head along the coastal path. The cottage is very well located and during our stay we visited the Eden project, St Michael's Mount, Lands End, St ives, Mousehole, Padstow and more - so it is in an ideal location to tour the area. The cottage is spacious, clean and decorated to a high standard. The owners Pete and Tracey couldn't have been more helpful. Make sure that you sample the good food and real ale at the Albion Inn in Crantock.
