The property is located in the rural village of Crantock, just a 5 minute walk, via a country footpath, from the wide sweeping sandy bay of Crantock, where guests can enjoy the stunning National Trust coastline and the long golden sands of Crantock Bay.

The bay is lifeguard patrolled and perfect for swimming, surfing and body boarding. There are plenty of watersports on offer with kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and surfing all available for hire and/or lessons.

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.

The beach and surrounding headlands form part of the beautiful National Trust Conservation Area. To the North of the bay lies the Gannel estuary which has created a beautiful sandy haven for countless seabirds, with plenty of rock pools to explore and great opportunities for catching crabs with the children. Or why not enjoy a leisurely evening stroll along the rivers edge at high tide and see what you can see?

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.

Nearby is the secluded beach of Polly Joke, without a car park it is 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.

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”.

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.

Cosy and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our weeks stay could not have been more pleasant.

The cottage is small, but perfect for a family of 4. With all the facilities you need for a comfortable holiday. The front is a really sun trap, great for an evening BBQ and outdoor dining.

Being only a short walk over the dunes to the beach, or down to the village shops and pubs, makes the car largely redundant.

We spent most of our time on the beach, with the kids enjoying the surf (Wetsuits are a must!).

And having use of the garage to dry the gear off made life even easier.

Can't wait to go back, and explore more of the wider area.

Lovely spot to stay in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

Sunny corner was ideal for us as a family of 4. The kids loved the novelty of sleeping in bunk beds and with the larger bed on the bottom the option of them both sleeping together there was available.

The living room kitchen area is actually larger in reality than it looks in the photos. The kitchen was well equipped even though we didn't eat in much. We ate out most evenings and the best meal we had was in the Bolingey Inn. It was slightly off the beaten track near Peranporth but found out about it via TripAdvisor.

Probably the best thing about Sunny Corner was the proximity to Crantock beach. Via the path across the field it was only 5 minutes away and a fun descent down some steep sand dunes!! Great fun but slightly harder on the way back up. The beach itself is probably the best one I've been to in Cornwall.

All in all we had a great week and would love to stay there again at some point in the future.

Lovely Apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here recentely for 4 nights with my family. The place was great with more than enough room for the 5 of us. The terrace area was a real bonus as it really caught the sun and gave our kids an outdoor run around space. The location is amazing, with Crantock beach being 5 mins walk away, and with Polly Joke and Holywell being a bit further away but still walkable.

The property was clean and very tidy and communication with the owners was excellent, answering any questions very quickly. We would definitely stay here again
