  • Mr Robert

    “We had a lovely time, home away from home was the feeling we got, close to the beach and easy access to the local shops.”

    The only thing if you could address was the water heater in the shower, not very straight forward to get the heating right!

    The only thing if you could address was the water heater in the shower, not very straight forward to get the heating right! Rest everything was perfect. Thanks!

The property

Nestled in the coastal village of Holywell, in Cornwall, is this delightful detached bungalow, Porth Raylen.

This wonderful retreat has been designed to bring together friends and families to explore the coast of Cornwall.

Inside, the property has been designed with a family in mind, ensuring the rooms are furnished with contemporary décor and neutral colours.

Discover a large sitting room complete with sofas and armchairs to cosy up under a blanket and unwind with a favourite show on the provided TV.

This room also provides large floor to ceiling windows letting in an abundance of natural light and a small dining table and chairs for enjoying a hearty breakfast at whilst overlooking the garden and distant mountainous views.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner which has seating for all six guests and is the perfect social space for enjoying a home-cooked meal, or bring a board game from home and spread out here for those quieter evenings.

Once the evening draws to a close, retire to one of the two family rooms, consisting of a double and single, and a further three singles.

Each bedroom has plush beds for getting some much needed rest and lovely views over the garden to greet you every morning.

Take a refreshing drink out to the garden and watch the sunset whilst dining alfresco and let your pets stretch their legs over the immaculate lawn.

While you're in the area, make sure you visit the sand dunes at Holywell Bay, famous for being one of the filming locations for the popular TV series Poldark and is well-worth the visit if you're looking for something a little more secluded.

Take a drive into the nearby seaside town of Newquay, hugely popular for its abundance of tourist attractions to suit all ages and tastes.

Fistral Beach is a popular place for getting involved with Cornwall's favourite sport of surfing with a more active social space.

Animal lovers will delight in visiting Newquay Zoo which has a range of animals you won't want to miss, or travel towards Blue Reef Aquarium to discover a range of exotic species of underwater creatures you probably never knew existed!

Make a day of it and enjoy a meal out at one of Newquay's delightful restaurants.

Porth Raylen is a wonderful choice for a seaside break to the coast.

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.
