After some advice from Annabelle : ) I abandoned the half formed plan for Crackington Haven and now think we would be better suited to spend a week in Fowey, Mevagissey or Looe. We are looking at late May, with our 18 month old toddler in tow. (Daymer Bay also looked lovely, but seemed more difficult/expensive accommondation)
It seems that there is a range of self catering accommodation available in Fowey, Mevagissey & Looe. And I think the harbour setting will work well with a nosey toddler, lots of things to see! And lots of lovely beaches near each.
Ideally we would like to be able to abandon the car as much as possible for the week, or to take short trips (and perhaps a drive over to Tintagel one day).
Do you have any suggestions for areas to stay where we could walk to a nice beach? Or alternatively short drives to nice ones?
If you had a choice of the 3 places (and this is likely to be our only trip to Cornwall), which would be your choice?
Is Polruan a good alternative to Fowey itself?
And is the ferry between Mevagissey and Fowey a good day trip?
We are wanting a relatively quiet holiday, but with a small energetic boy need to be able to take him out for walks, eg coffee or lunch out, and would love to spend some time on a sandy beach if the weather is nice.
Thanks for the help so far x
