Crantock, Cornwall

I have a thing for thatch.

Other than our drive to Cornwall and a 4 am headlong dash back to London at the end, we spent our entire English adventure in the gorgeous seaside village of Crantock

The wedding we were attending was at St. Carantoc's Church, and we stayed at a darling B&B just steps from the church. 

Sandbanks features three cozy but comfortable rooms and a lovely breakfast room, as well as beautiful gardens.

Our B&B was also steps from the beach, which will be getting its own post or three. On vacations I usually try to cram in as much sightseeing as possible, but I've been so happy to be forced to think more locally on our wedding trips this year. If you're sightseeing in Cornwall, Crantock is a must-see. Stay tuned for posts about Crantock Beach and its sweeping cliffs. 

Cornwall, England Travel Tips

  • If you're near Newquay, definitely try to find a day to see Crantock Village.
  • Sandbanks is a lovely B&B with very reasonable rates. Alison and Ian are gracious hosts and Alison's full English breakfasts are the perfect foundation for a long day at the beach!
  • We loved the fish and chips (and mustard mashed potatoes, and garlic mushrooms with Stilton) at The Old Albion.
  • The Morrisons in Newquay was very convenient for putting together cheap lunches and snacks.
