    “A well designed property that was exceptionally clean.”

    Turn right out of the front door for a short walk to the village centre.

The property

Close to the centre of Crantock, boasting views of the nearby fields filled with grazing horses and a pretty church, is The Waves, a delightful retreat, ideal for a couple, small family or group wanting to enjoy a peaceful coastal escape, while also being within easy reach of the bustling Newquay and the incredible north Cornwall coast.

Step inside this loving property to discover a welcoming open-plan living space with a seating area, perfect for relaxing at the end of the day on the sofa with a great book or a movie night, while the patio doors open onto an enclosed patio, where you can enjoy the last of the afternoon sunshine with a glass of wine, or an alfresco dinner in Cornwall's favourable sub-tropical climate.

The well-equipped kitchen provides a host of appliances to take care of your self-catering needs, and home-cooked dinners can be enjoyed together around the dining table.

The cloakroom rests beside the front door and is ideal for freshening up after a long day at the beach and exploring your surroundings, while upstairs is the contemporary family bathroom suite, offering a shower over bath, so you can end your day with a relaxing soak or start it with a revitalising rinse.

About the location


Newquay 4.5 miles.

Crantock is a small Cornish village, just a short walk from the beach, close to the popular resort of Newquay. If you want to escape the crowds, yet still be close to the action, this is the place to be. There's stunning countryside all around and lots of pretty villages to explore; however, it is the coast that dominates. Enjoy superb walks along the coastal path over dramatic cliff-tops, or magnificent surfing on beaches stretching from Watergate Bay in the North to Fistral beach in the centre of Newquay and on down the coast. There are a number of golf courses in the area, as well as National Trust properties, traditional pubs and outstanding restaurants. Newquay itself is a visitor's paradise with a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, plus attractions such as the Sea Life Centre, Newquay Zoo and nearby Dairyland and Eden Project.
