Cornwall's Crantock Bay was voted Britian's Best beach 2013 and this is your chance to win a luxury stay at the new self-catering apartments

Crantock Bay is an exciting new development of luxury 2, 3 and 4-bedroomed self-catering apartments on the site of the former Crantock Bay Hotel, on the beautiful North coast of Cornwall.

The hotel was owned by the Eyles family, who after 60 years in the business, decided to enter a joint venture with Acorn Blue and redevelop the hotel into luxury apartments with additional on-site leisure facilities and Tapas bar/bistro C-Bay’.

“Our segment of the market had been in decline for several years, so we took the opportunity to redevelop and remarket this truly spectacular site,” says director, Nina Eyles. “We have provided accommodation, food and leisure here for several generations, so it made sense for us to continue to do so in an exciting new format."

Situated on the Atlantic coast of Cornwall, in the hamlet of West Pentire, close to the village of Crantock, all apartments feature breath-taking views across Crantock Beach, Goose Rock and the coast beyond.

Surrounded by the National Trust headland of West Pentire, this stunning location allows direct access to the South West Coast Path and to the golden sandy beach below - Crantock Beach was voted Britain’s Best Beach’ in 2013.

Garden level apartments have access straight onto the grounds whilst all other apartments feature at least one, sometimes two balconies overlooking the bay. There is a large communal garden for outdoor relaxation or, if you prefer, the beach is only a three-minute walk away. Here you will find rock pools, sand dunes and a seasonal lifeguard patrolled area for swimming and surfing.

Each apartment comes equipped with a dish washer, washing machine, fridge, freezer, wine cooler, cot, high chair and a complimentary Welcome Hamper. Bed linen and towels are also included.

The brand new café/tapas bar, C-Bay, has the same glorious views over Crantock Beach and the coast beyond. C-Bay offers locally sourced seasonal ingredients and mouth-watering dishes with a Cornish and British influence which you can enjoy in the sea view restaurant, on the sun terrace or in the garden - wherever the mood or occasion takes you (limited opening times during the winter). Homemade cakes and light lunches are on offer during the day followed by a more sophisticated tapas-style menu in the evenings.

The newly refurbished indoor heated swimming pool and spa bath are complemented by the new all-weather tennis court and helps make Crantock Bay the perfect all year round destination.
