Crantock Bay Apartments are wonderful - only a ten minute car drive from Newquay, but it could be a world away from that surf (and stag night) capital.
The apartment itself has been very well designed, and very thoughtfully kitted out by the owner. Most luxury, contemporary apartments we stay in still tend to rely on IKEA for their furnishings. Not so here. Definitely at the John Lewis end of the spectrum. We may be some of the few who actually cook in self catering apartments, but for those that do, it was very well equipped - great for cooking, great for eating in. The lovely hamper provided on arrival (even in December, which is unusual) was most welcome - a cream tea, local bread, and a very appreciated bottle of wine were amongst the goodies left for us. The lounge was very comfy, and (as the other reviewer says) definitely the best views around. Watching the tide come in and go out was a favourite past time of my wife!
Other things worth noting: comfortable bed; lovely walk in shower; great little 'boot room' at the bottom of the stairs for dumping sandy boots after a day walking. And very dog friendly (both the apartment and complex). The C-Bay bistro on site does excellent food and is more than happy for a four legged friend to sit under the table. Plus a couple of places to get pooches clean after a long walk.
Walks were fantastic. Around the headland; to Holywell a couple of miles down the coast; down the Estuary towards Newquay.
Overall, hugely recommended. We hope to be back!
A very high spec. apartment at a great location. A well stocked hamper was provided on arrival - a thoughtful inclusion. Great attention to detail with plenty of information supplied about the accommodation and surrounding area. A lovely pool with allocated sessions for guests and an on-site Cafe/Bar with excellent cuisine and friendly staff. Easy parking, a secure access system and an individual storage facility for all your beach goodies! A very short walk to the best beach in Cornwall.
