What a delightful place to re-create childhood memories of Cornish seaside holidays with our own children (aged 6 and 3). Crantock beach has a little of everything: dunes, fine sand, caves, rockpools, a little river (with ferry boat to see live crabs and lobsters on the Newquay side) and lifeguard patrolled swimming/bobyboarding/surfing areas. When we weren't at the beach, the girls simply adored exploring all the nooks and crannies of Waylands' brilliantly-landscaped garden. The interior is also sumptuously decorated, and the kitchen very well appointed, but I'll admit, the menus at the Cornishman and Old Albion pubs (5 minutes' walk from the house) did lure us away from self-catering the whole time. Aside from the walk to the beach (no great distance, but a little scary with two small children and no footpath), our week in Waylands was perfect!
