  • "Everything was lovely about this holiday property."

    The house was well equipped and tastefully furnished and decorated. The owners even left a selection of books, games, dvds, and puzzles, should you need them. Lots of useful stuff in the kitchen. (And thank you for the welcome pack too.) The oven was different to what we are used to so it would have been good to see the instruction book. But we managed. Two very tiny issues and these were not major, but i think useful going forwards to know. The outside tap is tucked behind the big box and a short hose would be helpful for rinsing dogs, wet suits or beach stuff. And when i booked i saw single beds in the second bedroom and when we arrived the bed was made up as a king size. Again not a big issue for us as we were family. And maybe my fault as i only read this was something we should of asked for when i read the welcome folder. Overall, a great location and we enjoyed our stay at the Waves.

    Nice walking area within a calm quiet beautiful area of Cornwall and not far away from anywhere. On arrival we recieved cake and milk for our stay which was really appreciated. The owners ensured we were informed of the important info in advance on top of the indepth info recieved via Sykes. The property was well thought out and modern with information on local attractions, eateries, shops and sports. Thankyou Lisa, Vincent & Sykes we had our most memorable holiday in 15 years!

About the location


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.
