Please speak with our host and they will be able to provide you with information, go through all the details with you and help you with booking.
We are situated right between Crantock Beach and the famous Fistral Beach, both of which are dog friendly all year round. Fistral Beach takes approximately 20 minutes walking along the coast-path. Getting to Crantock is a little trickier due to the river Gannel being between us and the beach. During the summer months if you take the pathway down the side of the Fern Pit café you can take a bridge across to the beach during low tide and when the tide is in there is a small ferry which will take you across for about £1.40. In the winter you can take the bridge over the Gannel however there is no ferry when it is high tide, daily tide times can be acquired from your host.
For information of any other beaches either locally or further afield please ask at reception.
