About this property
This detached, architect-designed holiday house sits in one of the most enviable positions in Newquay with uninterrupted views across the Gannel Estuary, a haven for wildlife, a watersport enthusiasts dream and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property has its own indoor, heated swimming pool which is located on the lower ground floor. The views across the water to the green hills of Crantock are stunning and the footpath that hugs the shoreline can be accessed from the main house door.
An old bridge crosses the tidal sands to the village of Crantock. Walks, crabbing, kayaking, horse riding, stand-up paddle boarding and windsurfing can all be enjoyed on the Gannel, most of which are available to hire locally. A local tip is to stroll along the Gannel to one of Newquay’s oldest and original cafés to enjoy crab sandwich’s and a pot of tea, overlooking the beach out to the sea. Newquay with its surf and beach culture is a short walk and has many restaurants, shopping, a zoo, leisure centre, swimming pools and a working harbour, where you can take to the sea on one of the many fishing boats and hopefully catch the evening’s dinner!
There are many tourist attractions in the surrounding area from man-made to natural, such as Crealy Adventure Park, Lappa Valley Railway, Newquay SeaLife Centre, plus several National Trust gardens, such as Lanhydrock and Trerice Manor. Watergate Bay, home to Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, is nearby and Padstow, with many excellent eateries including Rick Stein’s restaurant and excellent fish and chip shops, is a short drive along the most beautiful coast roads in the country. St Ives, Fowey and Falmouth are all within easy reach and are all essential destinations to enjoy and explore the wonderful and diverse county of Cornwall. Beach ¾ mile.
