We are so excited!
The Muddy Stilettos Awards are the most coveted awards for small independent lifestyle businesses across the country and…
CRANTOCK BAY SPA has been nominated for BEST DAY SPA!
We are so proud to share the skills and expertise of our two spa girls, Lissy and Treen, who never fail to deliver a professional and perfect spa day experience to our lovely guests. As a very small, family run spa, we could not be prouder to even be nominated!
Saying that… the work our two spa girls do is amazing – and because of them we do feel a strong and deserving contender for this award.
Being able to share our private spa space, unique setting, stunning location, private pool and Jacuzzi with delicious food and drinks available throughout your spa day with us feels wonderful – and knowing our guests are loving their time here as much as we do, well, that’s pretty fantastic.
We use only 100% organic Made for Life Organics products, which is a Cornish skincare range that grew from a desire to create skincare that nourishes your body both inside and out.
We really enjoy sharing our little spa with you and we really hope you love us as much as we love you!

Looking for a gift? Something to say ‘I love you and I care’? Then why not buy one of our vouchers? It can be for something specific like a spa treatment or a spa day or be money towards a Crantock Bay experience. Even better, the voucher comes beautifully wrapped in a presentation box.
Bring your doggy friend too!
Beach, countryside and National Trust land are all on our doorstep and your canine friend will absolutely love the romp. Walk, breathe, enjoy – then join us in our dog-friendly bistro and bar.
A bracing walk along the beach before breakfast, freshly ground Olfactory coffee whilst admiring the view and a dip in a warm indoor pool to build up an appetite for a festive feast. Does this sound like your perfect Christmas break?
Here are our 5 favourite things about celebrating Christmas at Crantock Bay:
1. The location
Perched above Crantock beach, with a view that you can sit and watch for hours, the apartments are in an enviable position. The journey to the beach is by foot here. During the winter months there’s plenty of space for children, grown-ups, and dogs to blow off steam. Then it’s a short walk back to hunker down with a hot drink.
2. Food & drink
Serving food and drinks every day except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day, C-Bay Bar & Bistro offers everything from great coffee to locally caught sustainable fish, home-baked cakes, and delicious cocktails. Our apartments have fully equipped kitchens – but there’s every excuse not to cook!
3. The spa
From manicures and pedicures to spa rituals and spa days, the experienced team offer a wonderful range of treatments from the tranquil therapy rooms. There’s also a relaxation area, indoor heated pool and spa bath – with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gardens and out to sea. Not forgetting the tennis court, with probably the best sea view in the country.
4. Dog friendly
We wouldn’t want to spend Christmas without our canine companions, they’re part of the family. Many of the apartments are dog friendly and C-Bay Bar & Bistro is too. Add in the beach and a huge selection of local walks and you’re in doggy heaven.
5. The apartments
Light, bright and with incredible views. The apartments are all unique but share the same outlook. They’re practical yet luxurious and are perfect for hunkering down when the sun goes down, or when bad weather rolls in – storm watching can be quite spectacular. On blue sky days the balconies are perfect for sitting on and staring out to sea.
Don’t miss our Christmas shopping evening on Wednesday 24th November, 5 – 8pm. Enjoy a glass of complimentary bubbles whilst browsing local craft stalls, offering stocking fillers to jewellery and photography. The lovely spa ladies will be on hand doing mini manicures and advising on Made for Life Organics.
Find our Christmas availability here. There is currently some availability in apartments sleeping 4-6 people (some of which are dog friendly). For further information, please call us on 01637 830229.

Cornwall is renowned as a destination steeped in arts and culture. From a world-famous open-air theatre carved into a granite cliff, to the largest collection of Barbara Hepworth work in the world – there’s a wide range of cultural attractions offering artistic inspiration and theatrical performances on offer.
Here are just some of our favourites.
North Coast Asylum
Just down the road from us in Newquay, is the North Coast Asylum. Described as more than a traditional art space, NCA is devoted to nurturing the next generation of creatives by selling and exhibiting emerging mid-career artistic and photographic talent. A gallery not to be missed.
The Minack Theatre
The world famous Minack Theatre was originally a sloping cliff covered in gorse with a ninety-foot drop to the sea below. It came about due to the extraordinary hard graft of Rowena Cade, who offered a local open-air production the use of her cliff garden for a performance of The Tempest – something that started a lifelong project.
The theatre was built by hand over the course of the rest of Rowena’s life – largely using hand tools and the odd stick of dynamite (!) to create the iconic spectacle it is today.
From plays to musicals, opera to children’s events, there’s something to delight everyone.
Tate St Ives
Overlooking Porthmeor Beach and the Atlantic Ocean, the curved structure of Tate St Ives is every bit as impressive as the art you’ll find inside.
As well as a changing programme of large-scale seasonal shows, it also provides a permanent presence for those iconic 20th century artists who lived and worked in the town – demonstrating the role of St Ives in the story of modern art.
Times tickets are currently required for all visitors.
Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden
Dame Barbara Hepworth first came to Cornwall with her husband, Ben Nicholson, and their young family at the outbreak of WWII. She lived and worked at Trewyn Studios, now the Barbara Hepworth Museum, for 26 years until her tragic death in 1975.
The museum and sculpture garden are a favourite with culture visitors to St Ives and provides a thoughtful insight into the life of this world-famous sculptor. The majority of the bronzes are in the positions which the artist herself placed them and the studio itself is a time capsule.
We recommend booking a combined ticket to tie your trip in with a visit to the Tate St Ives.
Royal Cornwall Museum
Explore thousands of historical objects from Cornwall alongside some of the county’s finest art collections at the Royal Cornwall Museum.
The museum was founded by the Royal Institution of Cornwall in 1818, to promote excellence in science and art and highlight the world-leading industries that Cornwall was known for. From Bronze Age Cornish Gold to Roman forts, industrial growth and Cornwall’s mining heritage, visitors can explore the great wealth of the county’s history.
With the school summer holidays just around the corner (I know, we can’t believe it either), we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite things to do with the family within a short drive of Crantock Bay.
Learn to surf
We’re surrounded by fabulous beaches which are great for surfing, but there’s no better than the one right on our doorstep – Crantock Bay. If you’re yet to try surfing, we’d highly recommend a lesson with the Big Green Surf School. They’re family friendly, provide all the equipment you’ll need and have amazing coaches.
If you prefer to stick to calmer water, they also do SUP tours and lessons in the nearby Gannel estuary too!
Try your hand at golf
Challenge the kids to a round of mini golf, or if you’re looking for more of a challenge, pitch and putt (watch out for the cliff-hanging 18th hole!) Both can be found close by at Holywell Bay Golf. With coastal views and well-kept greens, it’s a great way to spend an afternoon outdoors.
Head off on a sea safari
Take a 2-hour trip out to Seal Cove with Newquay Sea Safaris, stopping to see birds and marine wildlife on the way. You’ll learn about Newquay’s maritime history and the marine habitat as you cruise along too. After speeding out to deeper water there’s an opportunity to look for dolphins, basking sharks and sunfish – an experience which the whole family will enjoy.
There’s also shark cage diving for the slightly braver…
Visit Blue Hills Tin Streams
Learn about tin production on a self-guided tour at Blue Hills in St Agnes. Tin has been produced in the valley for the past 40 years and is worked under a special licence from the Duchy of Cornwall. Hand tools are used to collect the tin carefully – an ancient type of mining which has taken place for thousands of years.
On a walk around the site, learn about how the ore is extracted and meet the craftsmen who dress it, smelt it, refine it and make it into the end product – such as jewellery and giftware.
Walk the Newquay Discovery Trail
Explore secrets of the past on the Newquay Discovery Trail. You’ll find slate disks in the ground at key places of interest around the town. Each slate is numbered and links to a map – so you can learn facts about your location whilst admiring the view. A brilliant way to explore Newquay without a car!
There are two walks which make up the trail, one which takes a coastal route and the other which takes in some of the coast before moving inland – passing through the gardens and boating lake, as well as other attractions.
Pick up a copy of the Discovery Trail Map from the Visit Newquay Tourist Information Centre.
