About Greycott

Greycott has recently been refurbished to a high standard, providing accommodation for up to eight people in four bedrooms within a few minute's walk from Crantock beach and village centre. Dream of the perfect location for your self-catering holiday in Cornwall, and you might come close to picturing this beautiful village that is close to everything yet somehow falls underneath the radar of most visitors. Instead of fighting your way through heaving towns and busy car parks, you can simply grab your beach towel and stroll the half a mile from your holiday cottage to the sand, passing the Old Albion pub and a favourite local cafe along the way.

Life in Crantock revolves around the water and the seasons. It has a beautiful sandy beach, but it's at the mouth of the Gannel Estuary with lots of opportunities for swimming, surfing, paddleboarding, sailing, kayaking, and fishing. Hire a SUP or learn to surf at the summer surf school - why buy a souvenir when you can take home a skill that will last a lifetime? The South West Coast Path views are always spectacular, especially around the West Pentire Headland Site of Special Scientific Interest, Porth Joke, and Seal Cove. Life is relaxed. Slow. Laidback. Still, if you yearn for a bit of bustle and excitement, you can feel good knowing that the buzzing Newquay is barely five miles from the cottage, with its world-famous beach, music festivals, bars and restaurants.

Local attractions include the Sea Life Centre, Newquay Zoo, Eden Project, the fabulous open-air Minack Theatre, and St Michael's Mount. There are gardens, National Trust properties and beaches like Perranporth, Holywell Bay, Lusty Glaze, and Fistral. Foodies can shop at farmers' markets and Healey's Cornish Cyder Farm. A guided coasteering tour and a ride on the Lappa Valley Steam Railway will give you different but equally wonderful perspectives of the landscape. Treat the kids to a day at the Camel Creek Adventure Park, Screech Owl Sanctuary, or the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre.

Greycott welcomes holiday bookings all year round.
