Crantock Holidays

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.


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 Bit 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, 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

Aside from the glorious golden sands and picturesque village of Crantock, you can head to West Pentire to the C-Bay hotel which has tennis courts, a swimming pool and is dog friendly.

Further afield, Newquay has an array of activities on offer. For a family-friendly activity, Newquay Zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium make a great day out. For something slightly different, head to Pirate's Quest for a swashbuckling voyage through Cornwall's past. Read our blog here for more ideas on days out in Newquay

In addition, Newquay town is the perfect place for your holiday shopping, with a range of different shops selling: clothes, gifts, beach goods, ice creams, pastries, sweets and more!

Eating Out

In Crantock, the first point of call for dinner has to be The Albion Inn. If you head slightly out of the village to West Pentire, you'll find The Bowjie Inn (also known locally as the pink pub) which overlooks Crantock Beach. Also near West Pentire you'll find C-Bay Bistro with unsurpassed views across Crantcok beach and beyond. 

Further afield, Newquay offers a wide variety of restaurants with something to suit everyone. 


There are lots of places to walk in and around Crantock.

If you head to Crantock Beach via Rushy Green you can either walk across the beach, or take the coast path towards West Pentire, which in the spring/early summer is filled with poppies - a beautiful sight!

Cubert Common, not far from Porth Joke, is great place for dog walkers and ramblers.

What our guests say...

We love hearing about our guests’ experiences, and we know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.

Very spacious and larger than photos suggested. Hosts very welcoming and flowers and tea on arrival was most welcome. Liked basin in each bedroom and large airing cupboard as was concerned there was no tumble dryer. Hosts were lovely and very welcoming. Email from Aspect checking we were OK in first week was a nice touch. Access to swimming pool was great. we just wish we had used it in first week. It was very clean and well looked after. Description of walk to beach not accurate and was much further than we thought. It would assist less able people better to give realistic walk times and also loose rubble/rocks under foot.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your very helpful comments. It certainly sounded like you had a lovely time here; we are glad that you liked it. We really appreciate you sending us your thoughts on the walk to the beach; the property team are going to review that description and amend it to make it clearer. It sounds like the coast path is approximately 100m from the property, but then you have a little walk from there on to the beach, and as you say, it is not a flat, level walk. We would always want information to be as accurate as possible, so thank you for bringing this to our attention. Thanks again and we hope to see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Wonderful location with sea views. Quick walk to headland and beach.

Brilliant situation Everything there that you could possibly need. Very comfortable and dog friendly, what more could you ask for. Only 10 minutes walk to Poly Joke beach and 10 min drive to Crantock beach. Use of the facilties across the road is a bonus as well. Pub just 2 mins walk as well , if you needed it

November 2017

I and my friends from Germany had the loveliest stay at The Granary. We could not recommend the accommodation highly enough if you are looking for homely comfort, a stunning location, amazing sea views and a great base for coastal walking and exploring north Cornwall.

October 2017

The Granary was a lovely place for a family with a dog. The property was very clean with everything we needed for our stay. Beautiful beaches (dogs allowed on them) in a short walking distance (great for the family and dog!). Children loved the use of the swimming pool and tennis courts opposite the property which are kept in excellent condition and weren't very busy (often had the pool to ourselves). Nearby pub has an outside seating area which allows dogs and has lovely views.
