The property

Amble back from the surfy beach at Crantock over grass sand dunes to this beautiful coastal home. Smartly refurbished from top to toe and redesigned in reverse level to maximise distant sea views, Seagrass is a refreshing representation of modern coastal living. Separated from the lively resort of Newquay by the Gannel River, the traditional seaside village of Crantock is a more low-key but no less desirable holiday destination. Seagrass is located at its centre, within a stroll from the restaurants, pubs and a convenience store.

Accentuating the coastal feel, large picture windows bathe generous rooms with light and doors to a Juliet balcony in the open-plan living room invites fresh air in off the Atlantic coast. During the cooler months, snuggle up on deep sofas and armchairs upholstered in rich colours and adorned with cushions in geometric patterns beside the warming wood burner. The kitchen is laden with good quality appliances including a coffee maker and there is a huge dining table to seat ten guests. Designed to promote a restful sleep, the four bedrooms on the ground floor feature a soothing neutral palette, white cotton linens and furniture crafted in natural wicker and wood. There is a small fifth bedroom/snug, set into the eaves on the first floor which is perfect for children, complete with cute beds on low bases. Practical for families, there are two bathrooms and a games room with table football. Space is generous through and through. The large, enclosed garden is safe for children and pets and the raised deck and rattan furniture sets the scene for barbecues and outdoor living.

You are surrounded by stunning coastal scenery which can be better appreciated from the nearby coast path. The beach is lifeguard patrolled during the main season and open to dogs year round. Take the dog for a paddle in the sea, stopping en-route at the Fern Pit Café to admire the view and sample their legendary lobster or crab sandwich. Bring surfboards or hire surf equipment straight from the beach. Seagrass is also a perfect launch pad for exploring Cornwall's north coast with the visitor hotspots at Watergate Bay, Padstow, St Ives, Port Isaac and Newquay within an easy drive.

About the location

NEWQUAY

Holywell 6 miles; Perranporth 8.5 miles; Truro 14 miles; Padstow 14 miles.

Newquay is the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a watersports paradise. The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 14 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached within 45 minutes. Picturesque St Ives and the Tate St Ives gallery is around an hour's drive or a train ride away. In fact, because nothing in Cornwall is far from Newquay, it’s the perfect touring base.
