Where is Cornwall?
Located in the far west of Great Britain on a peninsula tumbling into the vast Atlantic ocean, almost completely surrounded by the sea, a magnificent coastline wraps around Cornwall for almost 300 miles. Cornwall is also the location of mainland Great Britain's most southerly promontory, The Lizard, and one of the UK's most westerly points, Land's End, while a few miles off shore and even further west is an archipelago of tiny islands that make up the Isles of Scilly.
What's so special about it?
There are lots of things Cornwall is loved for; the dramatic coastline with its captivating fishing harbours; the spectacular beaches and the pounding surf that provide a natural playground for a variety of watersports; and of course the Cornish pasty and cream teas.
Expect the unexpected
But there are also lots of things about Cornwall that may surprise you. For instance, the wilderness of captivating Bodmin Moor with its panorama of big skies, fascinating prehistoric remains, great walking trails and more than its fair share of local legends.
Dynamic art scene
There's also the dynamic art scene found in mainly in West Cornwall, inspired by the naturally stunning landscape.
World-class food scene
More recently Cornwall has become known for a food scene to rival London and beyond; Cornwall now has a multitude of award-winning local food producers and stellar chefs putting the region well and truly on the gourmet map.
History and culture
Cornwall also has a tremendous history based on its Celtic roots; its Celtic Cornish culture; the warmth and friendliness of the people; and the Cornish language that can be seen in the village names.
A hugely diverse landscape...
Take a trip around Cornwall and you'll discover a hugely diverse landscape...
The far west
In the far west where the sea turns turquoise in the sun, the sand is white and the natural light is sometimes blindingly bright, the land is adorned with a legacy of Bronze age standing stones, huge granite burial chambers, Celtic crosses and holy wells.
The industrial heartland
In the old industrial heartland, the landscape, recently awarded World Heritage Site status, is dotted with the fascinating remnants of a triumphant mining past illustrating Cornwall's enormous contribution to the Industrial Revolution with engine houses, museums and miles of recreational trails.
Around the coastline Cornwall's maritime legacy is never far away where local fishermen land their daily catch of fresh seafood and tall ships, luggers and ketches unfurl their sails in the Cornish breeze.
Areas of natural beauty
The natural environment, recognised nationally across the twelve sections of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is accessed by the spectacular South West Coast Path providing walkers with miles of gentle strolls and challenging hikes.
To the north, a sweep of enormous golden sand bays stretches along the coastline often pummelled by giant Atlantic rollers. Long famed for its perfect surfing conditions, the coastline here is a hub for all kinds of extreme sports from coasteering to zapcat racing and scuba diving to rock climbing.
And in the wonderful south of Cornwall, fed by rivers from the high moorlands, leafy estuaries, fishing villages, beaches, harbours and beautiful gardens that flourish in Cornwall's mild climate.
Crantock's long history has made it a place of visual delight and rural charm, but it has much to offer today's visitor - not least the warm welcome you will receive - but there are also art and craft shops, a tea garden, restaurants, pubs, one of the most beautiful beaches on the north Cornish coast and miles and miles of wonderful paths along which you may walk in almost any direction.
The village of Crantock retains much of its original old fashioned charm and character. Large parts of the local parish are now in the ownership of the National Trust, including West Pentire headland which is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest - noted for its wonderful wild flowers and rare plants. The famous South West Coast Path follows the seaward side of the parish - along the edge of Crantock Bay and around West Pentire towards Holywell Bay. The older part of the village is situated around its church which is dedicated to St Carantoc, founder of the village. Crantock developed as a little hamlet, hidden from the sea by the sand dunes of Crantock Bay. Originally the village was known as Langurroc - 'The Dwelling of Monks'.
The beautiful Holiday Beach at Crantock Bay lies just to the south of Newquay -outside the charming village of Crantock.
Crantock Bay is a wonderful sandy cove and a tranquil family beach, where you can relax - away from the excitements of nearby, Newquay. The river Gannel also forms a natural boundary between the parishes of Newquay and Crantock. The bay and beach, is part of the River Gannel Estuary - with the small river carving out a sheltered sandy haven between, Newquay's East Pentire headland and the West Pentire headland.
Crantock Bay provides an ideal holiday destination for families. The beach at Crantock offers holiday makers and families over a mile of level high quality sand and sand dunes, with plenty of rock pools and caves to explore at low tide along the edges of the West Pentire and East Pentire Headlands. The cliff line along Crantock Bay's western edge provides a degree of shelter to the beach. The southern edge of the beach is lined by sand dunes and Marram grass- creating a nature haven for the local wildlife and a great place for the children to explore.
Crantock Bay looks out onto the Atlantic, making it a popular surfer's beach and is patrolled by the Lifeguards during the peak season. The Eastern edge of the beach, by the River Gannel, is not however suitable for swimming, due to the tidal nature of the river. Crantock's beach is a popular for swimming, fishing, snorkelling, surfing, wind surfing and canoeing. Safe, swimming and body boarding areas are designated by between the red and yellow flags on the main beach with all surfing and between the black and white chequered flags.
There are a range of facilities at Crantock Beach. There are two cafes, one in the Dunes and also The Fern Pit Cafe which serves breakfast, lunch and tea. Crabs and Lobsters may be purchased, cooked from here. There is a small ferry that operates when the tides cuts off access.
There are public toilets. There is a water sports school, wet suit and equipment hire too. The National Trust operate the parking on the beach and it is limited. There is over flow parking available in a nearby field.
Dogs are able to go on Crantock Beach all year round.

Porthjoke, or Polly Joke, is a secluded sandy beach located in a narrow cove between the West Pentire and Kelsey Headlands- between its two well known neighbours, Holywell Bay and Crantock Bay.
Polly Joke is a small sandy beach is a quiet location, with no facilities or toilets. Access is via a footpath. Parking at porth Joke is limited, so the car parks at West Pentire are strongly recommended, requiring a walk to Porth joke of just under a mile. Polly Joke. This delightful cove, entirely surrounded by National Trust land and virtually unchanged over the centuries, obtained its name from the old Cornish words for 'Jackdaw Cove' ....'Pol-Lejouack'. The jackdaws are still there!
