  • "This is our second visit to Bay View House Crantock."

    The house overlooks Crantock Bay and there are three pubs within walking distance. The house is super plenty of space two bathrooms, so very clean with an enclosed back garden and large front garden. The owners are friendly and quick to deal with the slightest of problems. I would highly recommend this property which is set is such a beautiful position with the coastal path within walking distance away.

    As this was a winter holiday the house was very warm and the kitchen very well equipped. The views are amazing and we cannot wait to return again in a few months time.

  • "Lovely views and spacious property."

    The sofas were so very uncomfortable though. As we were staying out of season, we were not out and about much. The tv had only a free view box, where you would expect a smart tv these days, this was very disappointing. (DVD player, but no dvds) Lovely managers. Beds were comfortable. Would be useful to have a small shelf to put toiletries on in the en-suite. Bigger dining table, struggle to fit 5 with food on. It’s quite a small 6 seater.

    Thank you for the feedback, One of our jobs this winter is to upgrade to a smart TV. That will be in for the new season. I think sofas are personal preference as i think they are very comfortable and have been told by other guests they are too. I do apologise that you were not comfortable in the living room during your holiday. We used to have lots of dvds but were told to take them out during covid and for guests to bring their own if needed. I bigger dinning table is something we may look into in the future. Thanks for staying with us. Joe Property Owner

    The house is comfortable, clean and a pleasure to stay in. There is easy access to Crantock Beach and Polly Joke Beach and Crantock Village has 2 pubs and a quaint tea room. The Bowgie pub is within walking distance and you can eat your meal overlooking amazing views of the coast. Great walks from the house and the house is dog friendly. We would happily stay there again.

    Everything you need is provided and there is plenty of living space particularly on the ground floor which was great for five adults. The beds were all really comfortable too. The view from the lounge and, the two front bedrooms of the bay are fantastic. We visited in February and the house was lovely and warm and we used the log burners more for effect than because we needed the heat. Very friendly helpful owners, we are definitely planning to return.

  • "Bay View House was close to perfect in every way."

    The rooms were clean, well decorated and spacious. It had every facility including a welcome bottle of wine and biscuits. The owner lived next door and was very friendly. He made it clear he was available if needed but then kept out of our way whilst we were there - perfect combination! The views from the two main bedrooms and the lounge are breathtaking. A note about a recent review we saw which said that the heating was off during the main part of the day unless you made an additional payment. This was NOT the case when we stayed in February 2019, and the house was pleasantly warm throughout at all times, even without using the log burner provided in the lounge. Will be staying there in the future.

    We’ve stayed here lots of times in the summer but in the winter it’s not good house very very cold spoke to owner who charged us more while we were there for having the heating on property is not cheap to rent and would expect to be albe to have heating on especially in the winter took my 80 year old mom who suffered due to the cold in the property very dissatisfied would not go there again

    Thank you for your comments. I am sorry to hear you found the property was colder than previous visits, I can see our team have been in contact with you following your stay. We have spoken with the owner and can confirm during the winter months the heating is on from 6am - 11pm. if you require further heating throughout the night then this can be arranged with the owner on arrival, this does not incur additional charges. Thanks Again, Sykes Cottages. Property Owner

    Booked through another company which then became part of Sykes, a few weeks before the holiday itself. I needed to contact Sykes to confirm everything was as originally booked (e.g. dog was still included, as not clear). This was an extra job I had not anticipated. It would have been ideal if Sykes had contacted me directly/personally about the booking and change of company.

The property

Bay View House is a detached house, set back and above the West Pentire Road between Crantock Village and West Pentire.

It is in an outstanding position with fantastic sea views over Crantock Bay and beyond.

The house is decorated in a traditional style, in keeping with the house’s 1930’s origins.

The house is light and airy with plenty of space and very well equipped to our high standards to ensure that guests have a fabulous self catering holiday.

The Property Manager lives in completely separate accommodation to the rear. Bay View House is a five minute walk from Crantock beach and Polly Joke beach, making it a family or surfers haven.

A few minutes walk away is a pub, serving food and drink with the same fantastic view, and Crantock village is only five minute drive away, where there are two more pubs, a Londis grocery store, Post Office and other village attractions.

Bay View House also has exclusive access to two gardens, one being fully enclosed making it ideal for parties with small children and dogs.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
