Crantock Bay, Apartment 7 | travel

by - June 20, 2015

As I write this, I have just woken up on the first day of our English summer break. I am looking at a turquoise ocean, enjoying the sound of the waves on the balcony, accompanied by a duvet and cup of tea, we are still in England after all. I can see about twenty little dots scattered across the beach below, people walking their dogs or walking surf boards down to the water it is pretty ideal, and that is just from my little spot.

The Crantock Bay Apartments are perched perfectly on the edge of the highland above the bay. Nothing but green lawns and a little rock separates them from the sand, they are lined with glass balconies perfectly framing the breathtaking views and make the most of the sun being behind them early in the morning with patios and outdoor dining to the back. 

I was excited to visit Crantock as soon as we saw these apartments when looking to book a English summer break, well of course otherwise I wouldn't have booked it at all, but pictures seriously do it no justice. Firstly, the apartments are huge. Square footage wise, despite being apartments I'm pretty sure they're bigger than most houses and are finished amazingly. Our apartment, Apartment 7 has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a huge living area, kitchen, utility, balcony and dining area. There is seven of us but I feel like 10 people would still rattle around in it. 

We were greeted with a welcome pack of tea, essential British fare, coffee, milk, bread, cereals and more, something I always love to make it as easy as possible to settle in. There is also a selection of local magazines, a welcome book and a pack of leaflets showing what is on offer locally so you can arrive having done no research at all and be kept busy for weeks. The bedrooms are stocked with blankets, towels and other little essentials you may need along with beautiful, freshly made beds and plenty of closet space, something most places lack.

In terms of facilities on site, there is an ocean view tennis court, a restaurant that serves from breakfast to A La Carte in the evening, of course again looking over the bay and an indoor swimming pool which also frames spectacular views of the beach below.

I hope the pictures speak for themselves but, I think it is in reality, even better. Oh and as of writing this I've only slept for one night in them, but the bed is like a cloud. (Update, the bed was like a dream the entire week)

Have you even been to Crantock before? Where is your favourite English holiday destination?

Until next time,
