Crantock


Crantock Newquay North Cornwall
Crantock is a beautiful little village on the north coast just a few miles from Newquay, one of the main resort towns in Cornwall. The river Gannel runs alongside Crantock Beach and Pentire head, separating the two areas and is a lovely walk when the tide is out or perfect for kayaking when the tide is in.

The small village centre has a beautiful round garden, looked after by the National Trust, two traditional Cornish pubs, a few cafes, gift shops and a convenience store. This idyllic sleepy coastal village is full of character cottages, many with thatched roofs located down narrow winding country lanes brimming with wild flowers. Crantock village is a very popular holiday destination, with the gorgeous sandy beaches at Crantock, Porth Joke and Holywell Bay nearby and spectacular walks across West Pentire headland, there's plenty of places to enjoy with the family.

Every year on the second Friday in September, the quirky, unique and frankly bizarre Crantock Bale Push takes place in the heart of the village, bringing people from all over the country to enjoy the Community spirit whilst raising much needed funds for local charities. Fast becoming a firm fixture on the Cornish events calender, the Bale Push is enjoyed by people who travel for miles to take their turn to try and roll a huge straw bale around the village in the fastest time possible, for more information read their website >> Crantock Bale Push

St Carantoc's Church is located in Crantock village near to the beach and dates back to the 6th-century.
