Located just south of Newquay on the Gannel Estuary, Crantock is one of Cornwall's best-kept secrets, where you'll find pretty thatched cottages, a village green and well, gift shops and tearooms and a couple of atmospheric pubs made for convivial gatherings. What's more, wherever your Crantock holiday cottage happens to be, you'll never be far from the sweeping sands of Crantock Beach.
Sheltered by rugged headland and sandy dunes, while away the days surfing, sunbathing, sandcastle building - whatever takes your fancy. Or stride out along the South West Coastal Path, winding its way over the peninsula, laden with wild flowers and rare species of plants. You can follow this walk to a gorgeous little cove known as Polly Joke, stopping for refreshments along the way at a welcoming pub.
Crantock village is a delight to explore - much of it (and the neighbouring region) protected by the National Trust. View exquisite wood carvings inside the beautifully restored Norman church. Relax in the tranquil surroundings of the Round Garden, a lovely orchard right in the village centre.
