Berwyn is a beautiful Grade II listed Victorian holiday home that sits in an enviable position in the pretty seaside village of Crantock, just five miles from Newquay on the north coast of Cornwall. Double fronted and with plenty of space, Berwyn is pet friendly (up to two dogs) and comfortably accommodates up to ten guests in five bedrooms, making it ideal for large groups of friends or families looking for a holiday by the sea.
From outside, this welcoming Cornish Cottage looks like the other terrace houses in the quiet street, but once you step through the red door, you will be taken back by how well equipped and spacious the accommodation is. Lovingly renovated, Berwyn boasts a number of Victorian features including tiled fireplaces and wood floors, perfectly blended with modern facilities such as flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi and also an Aga and roll top bath to add a touch of tradition and charm.
Berwyn could not be more perfectly placed as a seaside retreat and it provides an excellent base from which to explore North Cornwall and its many attractions and fantastic golden beaches. The chocolate box village of Crantock has an immense amount of appeal with its golden sandy dog-friendly beach ideal for surfing or swimming, and pretty whitewashed cottages sitting alongside the Atlantic Ocean. The village has two great pubs for eating out, a well-stocked village shop for stocking up on provisions and the beach - all within ten minutes stroll from the front door, so there's no need to use the car unless you want to. You can take a boat trip from Crantock to the vibrant town of Newquay during the summer months which offers an excellent selection of shops, restaurants and watersports opportunities.
The National Trust own much of Crantock, including the headland, a recognised Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the wild flaura and fauna. The area offers superb walking opportunities with the South West Coastal Footpath running though the village. For beach lovers, a short walk to the golden sands of Porth Joke Beach is well worth a visit. As it can only be reached by foot, there is always a quiet spot to enjoy the peace and tranquility and plenty of rock pools and caves to explore!
