About this property

With a quaint village atmosphere and a stunning dune-backed beach, Crantock is a dream coastal destination on Cornwall’s dramatic north coast, just two miles southwest of Newquay. Wedged between the Pentire Headland and the Gannel River Estuary, Crantock Beach boasts fine golden sand and crystal-clear surf making it ideal as an all-rounder for families and water-sports enthusiasts alike. Surrounded by a postcard-worthy slice of countryside which forms part of The National Trust, the area is strewn with meandering footpaths that offer visitors the opportunity to take in not only incredible sea views, but also the sights and sounds of a wealth of flora and fauna local to the area.

Positioned within just a short walk of its sandy stretch and just a short distance from the village’s pubs and restaurants, Wish You Were Here is a contemporary two-bedroom holiday home with an enclosed garden and hot tub, that offers families and couples a relaxing retreat in a fantastic seaside location. Open plan in design, its modern living area is airy and light; perfectly proportioned to include a dining space, lounge and kitchen, with double doors opening out to the patio and garden to allow the fresh sea air in. A lovely spot to soak up the Cornish sunshine or for relaxing with a post-beach drink, the outside space is furnished with a rattan suite and is completely enclosed so that guests who have their four-legged companions in tow can let them stretch their legs.

Upstairs are the property’s two tasteful bedrooms which comprise a master en suite with double bed and a second with twin zip and link beds that can be configured as super king size on request.. Both bedrooms feature a cool grey scheme with crisp white linen and large windows that lend a bright and airy feel, to create a peaceful place to retreat to after fun-filled days spent down on the beach.

Crantock village is home to a handful of good pubs and restaurants, the most frequented and popular of which being the traditional Old Albion Inn, and across the road the Cornishman and the fashionable C-Bay Cafe. Both the Old Albion and the Cornishman host many live music events. Across the river on the Pentire Headland, are the wonderful Sea Spray Café and The Fish House Fistral; easily accessed from May to September via the small foot ferry from the Gannel Estuary.
