Crantock beach is a long expanse of golden sand backed by sheltering dunes, ideal for sandcastles and surfing. Picture-perfect Crantock village is a friendly place with ancient cottages, a village shop, tearooms, two pubs and a beautiful Norman church. This is a wonderful location for a holiday, and beautifully presented Alanna is just a ten minute walk from both beach and village centre, a delightfully comfortable and unexpectedly spacious contemporary home with room for families to spread out. Three bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms and three living areas are all furnished and decorated in chic coastal style. Clifftop walks, surfing lessons and sand dunes teeming with wildlife are all within walking distance, and much of the surrounding land is managed by the National Trust with well-maintained footpaths and nature reserves to explore and beachside cafes offering tasty treats.
Alanna is the perfect base for families and couples to holiday in comfort and style. A contemporary detached house in a small row of just four similar properties, it has a fully-equipped kitchen, separate dining-room, large sitting-room and sunny conservatory offering plenty of space downstairs, with a small wet-room as well. Upstairs, the master bedroom has an en suite shower-room and the large twin and double bedrooms share the family bathroom. There is private parking at the front of the house and a small enclosed sun-trap patio garden at the rear. Decorated and furnished throughout to a very high standard in restful coastal tones, this is a real home-from-home. Although close to bustling Newquay with its surfing vibe and fabulous beaches, Crantock feels like a different Cornwall, a reminder of times lived at a slower pace. The village has narrow lanes and old stone cottages surrounded by beautiful gardens, a small village green and ancient pubs. The nearby beach is backed by dunes, with the wildlife-rich grasslands of Rushy Green rising up behind them. At the far end of the beach is the headland of Pentire Point West with lovely Polly Joke beach below, completely unspoilt and popular in early summer for amazingly vibrant displays of wildflowers. There are walks to enjoy taking in the Gannel estuary, or follow the South West Coast Path for far-reaching views along the coast beyond West Pentire.
