    Quiet location with easy access to shop, pub beach and main roads, Very comfortable beds. Bathrooms outstanding. Kitchen spacious with excellent appliances tho no user guides. BUT Fourth bedroom was a mattress on the floor with nothing else!!! Twin room had NO wardrobe space ( hooks on the wall), only a set of ancient drawers filled with old clothes; a sign the cleaning is less than adequate. “Carefully selected” Antique”furniture was old and scratched car boot quality. The heating was permanently on- outside temperature 22. James fixed it remotely but that failed. So we were HOT. Kitchen had four uncomfortable chairs, rest were foldaway chairs- for seven people? Limited crockery, so after a drink you had to wash your cup. Similarly the cutlery. Grill pan and microwave filthy- not cleaned. Back patio full of weeds Broken blinds in kitchen and bedroom. This property was finished in a hurry to cash in on the 2021 staycation boom. A few changes and a good cleaner could change it from adequate to outstanding. Sykes for the first time you disappointed us.

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately items do sometimes get damaged and we do not find out until the changeover day. I did meet with you at the property before your stay and let you know about the issue with the blinds in the bedroom, which only serve as secondary shading to the curtains. These have now been fixed. Every comment that we have previously had about the furniture and decor has been entirely positive. Unfortunately we cannot cater for every aesthetic taste, but the numerous photographs on the website give an accurate representation of the house interior, so you knew what to expect at the time of booking. The antiques are all well cared for Victorian, Edwardian, or early-20th-century pieces, and perhaps the scratches you noticed were on the intentionally distressed finish of the contemporary cream set created by a London designer. We will of course check carefully to see if there has been any damage done to the furniture that was initially in great condition. We use the house regularly ourselves, as well as checking between bookings, so we do keep a close eye on this. The fourth bedroom is a sofa bed as described, with quite a low-profile leg height, not a mattress on the floor. The garden is frequently tended, though unfortunately a week of wet weather followed by a week of heat meant that there had been a growth spurt of both wanted and unwanted plants. This was addressed following your stay, and will be kept under closer review. We apologise that the microwave was missed. We have very high standards ourselves, and sympathise with this - we expect an impeccably clean house. Unfortunately, your arriving at the house nearly two hours before your entry time asking the cleaner if you could come in put unnecessary pressure on getting everything ready for you. At the end of your stay, when the cleaner arrived to find all of the mirrors removed from the walls and placed on the floor, and almost every item of furniture other than the beds moved, he was again put under unnecessary pressure for the next guests. The heating only comes on if the inside temperature drops below the preset level, which is never higher than 22, and you can manually change it at any point from the eye-level dial in the kitchen. Due to your difficulty in doing this, though it is clearly described in the house instructions, I disabled the heating for the rest of your stay aside from 30 minutes on Friday evening when it came on to assist in drying anything you might need to pack having gone to the beach. We have found that twelve of most items has been fine for other guests, but have taken on your comment and increased the cup and glass count to sixteen. We welcome constructive feedback as it gives us the opportunity to improve the stay for others, but we also expect guests to leave the home as they found it. - Sykes owner relations

About the property

Situated in one of the most exceptional locations on the Cornish coast in the charming village of Crantock, is ‘Eloen’, a beautifully appointed property resting just moments away from azure waters of Crantock and Poly Joke Beach, and within striking distance of the popular harbour-town of Newquay.

This outstanding property is immaculately presented, with stylish modern furnishings as well as carefully selected antiques, to offer guests an exceptional self-catering experience with a plethora of things to see and do, varied enough for all ages to enjoy.

Upon entering the property, discover the entrance hallway, which grants access to the sitting room, where the pastel colour palette creates a welcoming ambiance and the plush seating arrangement invites you in to relax.

Return to the hallway to discover the light-filled kitchen/diner, featuring patio doors, allowing a seamless integration of the outside in.

Featuring a modern kitchen suite, complete with high-quality appliances, answering all of your self-catering family needs.

Enjoy the company of your loved ones at the spacious dining table or head out into the south-facing garden, where tables and chairs offer an alternative spot for alfresco dining.

As the evening draws to a close, take the staircase to find three bedrooms on the first floor, comprising of a king bedroom, a generous twin bedroom (which can also be made up as a super-king), and a single bedroom (or writing room for those who are seeking some inspiration while working remotely), whilst the master suite (with en-suite shower room) lies on the second floor, and is notable for its impressive view out of the large north-facing windows from which you can watch the ocean, see Trevose Head lighthouse blinking in the distance, or catch a glimpse of the stars at night.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming oasis, stroll into the centre of Crantock village, where you will be delighted to find an array of shops, pubs and a café, as well as direct access to Crantock Beach, where you can soak up the sunshine on the large expanse of golden sands or, if you are feeling adventurous, dip into the waters to try your hand at swimming, snorkelling, surfing, kayaking and paddle-boarding, and if you are lucky, catch a glimpse of the dolphins which occasionally visit, too! For the avid ramblers amongst the group, the South West Coastal Path promises to be an unforgettable adventure, with awe-inspiring views, that takes you through several stunning locations, including Poly Joke for some seal spotting, Perranporth, and the St Agnes Heritage Coast.

Crantock and Newquay are fast becoming foodie destinations: try the Jam Jar Kitchen in Crantock for delicious high-end coffee, cakes, breakfasts, evening cocktails and pizzas; or in Newquay you can choose from superior quality cafes like Pavilion (bakery and deli), Sprout (also a fantastic health food store), Jam Jar, Box and Barber, and Grounded.

There are also some fantastic restaurants nearby with views of the sea, such as The Boathouse, The Harbour Fish & Grill, and C-Bay Café and Bistro.

There are also several beautiful National Trust properties nearby, such as the delightful house and garden at Trerice just up the road, and Trelissick and Lanhydrock a bit further afield.

Those with children can look forward to visiting the nearby town of Newquay, where you will find a choice of three beaches with an endless supply of rolling surf, as well as family-friendly attractions.

With so much to see and do, bring your loved ones to ‘Eloen’ in Crantock to share a fun-filled holiday.

About the location

CRANTOCK

Newquay 4.5 miles.

Crantock is a small Cornish village, just a short walk from the beach, close to the popular resort of Newquay. If you want to escape the crowds, yet still be close to the action, this is the place to be. There's stunning countryside all around and lots of pretty villages to explore; however, it is the coast that dominates. Enjoy superb walks along the coastal path over dramatic cliff-tops, or magnificent surfing on beaches stretching from Watergate Bay in the North to Fistral beach in the centre of Newquay and on down the coast. There are a number of golf courses in the area, as well as National Trust properties, traditional pubs and outstanding restaurants. Newquay itself is a visitor's paradise with a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, plus attractions such as the Sea Life Centre, Newquay Zoo and nearby Dairyland and Eden Project.
