We loved our stay at Spring Cottage. The house itself is really nicely decorated and furnished - the nicest holiday house we’ve stayed in. Plenty of room for our family of 4. The location is fantastic as it is so close to the amazing beach and 2 great pubs in the village. It was so nice not to have to drive anywhere if we didn’t want to. We would happily return.

Holidays in Crantock

Crantock is a beautiful area just outside Newquay and offers everything you need for a holiday by the sea; a beautiful sandy beach, eateries close by and coastal walks on the doorstep.

Situated to the Western side of the Gannel Estuary, Crantock is ideally located for a peaceful holiday, just a stone's throw from Newquay.  Enjoy a relaxing holiday within easy reach of the beautiful beach. 

Not far from the beach, you'll find Crantock Village, a small but popular village, dating back to 460 AD, founded by Irish Hermits. The local pub, The Albion Inn, with its fascinating history is well worth a visit. Find out more about it here.

Top tip

Bring your pooches with you because Crantock is super dog-friendly!

Beaches

Owned and looked after by the National Trust, Crantock beach offers a large expanse of golden sands, backed by rolling dunes. The beach stretches between Pentire and West Pentire headlands. To the South, the sands are lined with high cliffs, providing shelter from the winds and to the North lies the mouth of the River Gannel. 

At high tide, the Fern Pit Gannel Ferry, 'Sunshine', will take you from the beach across the river; at low tide, a small footbridge will appear allowing you to cross the river for free. The River Gannel is popular with paddle boarders and wild water swimmers. 

The National Trust car park has ample space and is free of charge for National Trust members. Dogs are welcome all year on Crantock beach. 

Just beyond West Pentire, you'll find Porth Joke beach (also known as Poly Joke beach) a smaller, quieter beach. With rock pools and caves, this beach is perfect for explorers of all ages. The car park is a fair walk away, but well worth the effort for the peaceful sands. 

Things to do in Crantock

In Crantock, you can relax on the quiet beach or explore the quaint village, filled with thatched cottages. If you're feeling more adventurous, you can try a range of water sports such as paddle boarding with Newquay Water Sports Centre

A beautiful stylish cottage, very homely with lovely furnishings, cushions, throws, lovely lamps and accessories.. There was an open fire which was so nice to light at Christmastime. Kitchen well stocked with great chinaware, glasses, cookware etc, pretty much everything you needed, including a Nespresso coffee machine, Alexa and Sonos speaker too!

Warm shower in the garage very handy to shower off a pretty sandy dog after beach walks! Utility room useful for washing/drying and extra storage.

Location was brilliant for Crantock village and the beach, with off road parking, we also parked one car in the garage. The village was so pretty all lit up at night for Christmas, we had two lovely meals in the Old Albion pub which was very cosy and welcoming.

Our only negatives for our week's stay was the comfort of the two larger bedrooms, the mattresses were very hard so we did not sleep well for the whole week which spoilt our break, not being able to sleep or get comfortable. We also found the underfloor heating impossible to work or control, thankfully the weather was pretty mild over Christmas so cottage was not that cold. The upstairs was easy to heat as the rads were digital electric controls, so upstairs was easy to keep warm.

The back door could do with a blind as there is an alleyway that has a right of way across the back of the cottages, so next door could look into the property if they were also using the back alley or using their back outbuilding, gates either side were not that high with open slats, so offered no privacy.

We really loved the cottage and location but if beds are not changed sadly we would not stay again.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are delighted to hear that you found Spring Cottage to have everything that you needed, the warm shower in the garage is definitely a bonus for four legged friends! We are sorry that you found the mattresses uncomfortable; it can be very difficult to find a mattress that will suit everyone, and it is disappointing to hear that it was not for you. This is not something that has been raised here before, so we will monitor comments to keep an eye on guest's preferences over the coming months. We are also sorry to hear that you experienced a bit of a problem controlling the underfloor heating. The owner has informed us that alongside the control pad there is an iPad with an app to control this function, the instructions for which are in the sideboard, apologies that this was unclear. Thank you again for your comments; we are glad to hear that you liked the cottage and its fantastic location, but very sorry to hear that you would not personally return due to the firmness of the mattresses. Lucy, Customer Support

We visited Spring Cottage as a family of four. The cottage was beautiful and even better than the pictures we had seen. Very well equipped, comfortable and lovely decor. Located in the beautiful Crantock village, ideal location for the beach, pubs and shop. Thank you

A beautiful cottage with terrace, recently fully renovated, everything was new and clean. Very cosy and generous interior, tastefully arranged. Comfortable beds, several cushions. Kitchen fitted with all you need. Amazon echo view with Amazon prime/spotify access included. Quiet at night. Pub, local store and wonderful beach in walking distance. Dog friendly. Good pubs/restaurants nearby. The Aspect Holiday people were very friendly, helpful and took care. We can fully recommend this cottage.

We had an amazing week staying at Spring Cottage. We were so lucky with the weather, sunshine everyday and the garden is perfect for relaxing in and having a barbecue. The location of the cottage is perfect for Crantock beach. A short walk down passing the cars queuing for the car park. The house was perfect, no faults at all.

We had an amazing week at Spring Cottage, which has been finished to an exceptional standard and is so comfortable. The kitchen and its equipment were brilliant, beds comfy, bath/shower lovely and the sun room perfect for a morning coffee. Although we didn’t really get to use the garden due to the weather, it’s a great space that would be brilliant in the summer. The location of the cottage is perfect, a few mins walk to the beach and a couple of mins to the village shop, 2 pubs and lovely pizza place.

We really didn’t want to leave and are already thinking about returning.

A stunning cottage in a beautiful location.

A wonderful Christmas break in a beautiful cottage. The location Is absolutely ideal for the beach, popping to the local pub (footpath opposite the house) or exploring slightly further afield like Newquay or Perranporth. The cottage itself is gorgeous - perfectly decorated and very well equipped. There is a hot shower in the garage, which was perfect for washing ourselves and the dog off after our Christmas day dip in the sea! Locals are all very friendly and welcoming, especially the neighbours and the staff in the local pubs. We had a truly magical Christmas. Would definitely book again.

Spring Cottage far exceeded our expectations. We had a lovely family holiday here. The cottage is in a good location with a short walk to the beach. The cottage is extremely well equipped even including a ball thrower and shampoo for the dog!
We would highly recommend a holiday here.

We loved our stay at Spring cottage. The best cottage we’ve stayed in! It was beautiful and cosy especially with the wood burner. We’ve already talked about going back! It’s set in the small village of Crantock with 2 pubs, a shop and only a 6min walk to Crantock beach which is dog friendly. It’s also about 10 mins drive into Newquay. Highly recommend.

Fabulous cottage, beautifully presented in the perfect location. Short stroll to the sand dunes and huge beach, our dog absolutely loved it. The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need. Already booked again for next year, highly recommend this stunning cottage. Thank you for the most enjoyable stay. Mrs Scott

Spring cottage is a very highly spec'd holiday cottage, with a high level of comfort. The owners are very generous and there are many extras. Prosecco, tea, coffee biscuits were all there on arrival. My favourite gadget is the Nespresso machine with cappuccino frother.

The bathroom has the largest shower cubicle I've ever been in and a beautiful double ended bath. There is an electric towel rail to dry your towels.

They have left instruction manuals for all of the high tech gadgets which are needed.

The location is fabulous so close to the beach, with a back entrance that is a nicer walk to the beach than along the road.

We will be back.

We’ve had a wonderful family holiday At Spring Cottage. It was a fabulous base to enjoy a Cornish beach holiday. The village of Crantock is simply superb, great people, great services. Topped off by a beautifully decorated and furnished cottage which is dog friendly! Brilliant! We will be back.
Many thanks
