A 400-year-old Grade II listed cottage in the heart of the stunning coastal village of Crantock. Just yards from a traditional thatched pub, this quaint, pretty, semi-detached cottage, next to the owners’ home, is just minutes from an award-winning dog friendly beach, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Named after the gate of the adjacent historic church, Lychgate Cottage provides comfortable accommodation in an ideal location. The village of Crantock has a post office, tea room, gift shop, an art gallery and three pubs all serving food. The beach is one of Cornwalls finest, and is perfect for kayaking or windsurfing. The dunes are bordered by the estuary of the River Gannel, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a haven for birdlife. Surf lessons and stand-up paddle boarding are also available.
A short drive or walk along the coastal path will bring you to Holywell Bay, with its dog friendly golden beach. Newquay with its surf and beach culture is close by and has many restaurants, shopping, a zoo, leisure centre, swimming and a working harbour where you can take to the sea on one of the many fishing boats, and hopefully catch the evenings dinner. Watergate Bay, home to Jamie Oliver’s restaurant is nearby, and Padstow is a short drive along one of the most beautiful coast roads. There are many excellent eateries including Rick Stein’s restaurants and excellent fish and chip shops.
St Ives, Fowey, The Eden Project and Falmouth are all within easy reach, and are essential destinations to enjoy and explore the wonderful and diverse county of Cornwall. Truro is also close by and provides an alternative day of shopping, dining and sightseeing as you meander around the narrow cobbled streets. Sea fishing, horse riding, go-karting and many National Trust properties and gardens are all nearby. Beach ¼mile. Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 5 yards.
