The Cornwall region

Cornwall is full of places to feed your soul and put colour in your cheeks. Whatever the weather, a bracing walk along the cliffs or watching the waves will make you feel good about life.

It stays daylight longer in Cornwall than the rest of the country and the winter light is spectacular by the coast – it's helped to create the thriving Cornish artist community. The county is oozing with creativity, with a huge choice of art and craft galleries, plenty of live music and an exciting programme at Truro's Hall for Cornwall.

Famous for its gardens, Cornwall has many to choose from: the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the National Trust's Trelissick on the shores of the River Fal and Glendurgan on the picturesque Helford River, to name but a few.

We've also got our fair share of attractions, most of which are open all year round: the world famous eco-attraction Eden, Falmouth's National Maritime Museum, Newquay Zoo, the Blue Reef aquarium and for some industrial heritage, Geevor Tin Mine.

We mustn't forget the food. As well as the timeless classics of the pasty and the cream tea, the seafood must be sampled. It's not just the big name chefs like Jamie Oliver, Rick Stein and Michelin starred Ben Tunniciffe who offer a culinary treat: Kahuna on Newquay's Tolcarne beach or Sam's on the Beach at Polkerris are among the many gems to be found.

Crantock Village

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 has been voted Beach of the Year 2013.

Crantock Beach is a great beach for families and surfers alike. It has a wide sandy beach with sand dunes between the beach protecting 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.

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. Use the map above to see area around Crantock and the local walks that are available

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 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 makers essential needs.

Many of our guests use one of the supermarket online ordering facilities to have their shopping delivered on the day of their arrival.
