About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, sleeps 4-5, award winning gardens, close to the beach

Decorated to a high standard, Sandbanks is a luxurious maisonette apartment, which sleeps 4-5 people, situated right in the heart of the rural village of Crantock. It is close to the village amenities of the local pubs, bakery, tea rooms, grocery store and village post office. Situated on Beach Road, it is just a short walk down to the wide sweeping sandy beach of Crantock. Guests also have the use of the award winning beautiful garden which surrounds the property.

Sandbanks offers truly flexible accommodation. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, one double room, one twin room and one single room. The property also has two brand new shower rooms, one of which is positioned flexibly so that it can be ensuite with the twin bedroom if desired.

It is important to note that although it is possible to sleep 5 people at the property, the living area is designed to comfortably accommodate 4 people. Therefore we limit the property to 4 adults and children (over 12), so that the property remains spacious.

Downstairs there is an open plan well equipped kitchen, equipped with combination microwave oven, fridge/freezer, 2 ring hob and a washing machine. There is a breakfast bar which seats 4 and a living area, complete with soft seating for 4 people, beanbag and TV and DVD. The entire property is newly decorated to a high standard and is bright and airy.

The house has free wifi for guests to use. Bed linen and towels are provided. Please note there is no cot/high chair at the property.

Guests can also enjoy the award winning colourful garden which surrounds the property. With all day sun, you will always be able to find a place to enjoy the sun, whether relaxing in the evening with a drink by the pond, or settling down with a good book in a sunny corner during the day.

Other outside facilities include use of a washing line, tap and hose and space for 2 cars to park on the driveway.

What a wonderful place to stay...

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful apartment to stay. Off road parking and really nice, friendly owners. It can accommodate up to five people, but I think that would be a little difficult in the downstairs living area.

We has a fantastic time here (three of us) and the village is one of the nicest places I have ever seen!!!

Thank you Alison and Ian for making us feel so welcome in your lovely apartment. Much appreciated.

I can totally recommend a stay in this delightful area and especially at Sandbanks...

Spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located and with a parking space on the drive. We found the apartment to be immaculate - spotlessly clean, very well equipped and cosy. The decor is bright and contemporary. There was a supply of basic provisions on arrival which was a really nice touch. Perfect for the two of us. Well loved it!

Car: recommended

Located in the rural village of Crantock, our apartment offers the perfect setting to explore the stunning North Cornish Coast. The apartment itself is just a 5 minute walk to the wide sweeping sandy bay of Crantock. The bay is lifeguard patrolled and perfect for swimming, surfing (inc. lessons) and body boarding. Crantock beach was rated by the BBC series 'Coast' as Britain’s number 1 beach.

The BBC’s description of Crantock: “This quaint hidden cove is the place to escape the rowdy hordes in nearby Newquay. Set at the bottom of a quintessentially English village with two charming pubs, you’ll find it by wandering through the National Trust car park. Scale the looming dune and you’ll be rewarded with a goose-pimple inducing view. To the right of the bay, the tidal River Gannel offers ferry runs from the beach to Fern Pit. Here you can order a cooked lobster, caught that morning, or opt for a stunning cliff top walk along the headland overlooking the bay”.

This beautiful coastal area forms part of a National Trust Conservation Area and is great for both coastal cliff walks and inland moorland rambles. To the North of Crantock Bay lies the Gannel estuary which separates Crantock from the fishing town of Newquay. The estuary has created a beautiful sandy haven for countless seabirds. Why not enjoy a leisurely evening stroll along the rivers edge at high tide and see what you can see, or alternatively take to the water to try your hand at kayaking or Stand up paddle boarding trip, both available locally.

The picturesque village of Crantock, with its lovely thatched cottages, offers a tea room, a 400 year old thatched pub serving good quality food, a bakery, a beach café, a grocery store, a post office and a cliff top restaurant overlooking the sea.

Nearby is the secluded beach of Polly Joke, without a car park and only accessed via a footpath - it is perfect for relaxing far away from it all.

Also nearby, is the vibrant fishing town of Newquay, which can be accessed by foot, ferry or road from Crantock. Newquay has excellent attractions for both adults and children, including a zoo, aquarium, indoor fun pool with flumes, boating lake and a theme park. Newquay also boasts 4 large beaches, which offer a variety of water based activities including, surfing lessons, coasteering, paddle boarding and fishing trips.

For Golf enthusiasts there is Newquay’s Golf Club - an 18 hole course with magnificent sea views which is part of the Reciprocal Golf Network. Or you can walk across Cubert common to Holywell Bay’s golf club.

Crantock is also a great base for visiting the cathedral town of Truro (13 miles away), which has excellent shopping, museums and restaurants. A little further is the harbour town of Falmouth (23 miles away), with a fantastic maritime museum and plenty of opportunities for windsurfing, kayaking and sailing.

Other local attractions include the world famous Eden Project (Botanical Gardens) (21 miles away) and The Lost Gardens of Helligan and other national trust houses and gardens. Similarly children will have plenty to do with many local activity centres and theme parks.
