Boasting fantastic views and located in West Pentire, Kittiwake is a well decorated two bedroom cottage in a great location.

Kittiwake is one of the three Seaspray cottages based in West Pentire. The two-bedroom cottage boasts fantastic views over the Goose Rock to the Newquay coast, perfect to look at whilst enjoying your breakfast on the patio. The living area of the cottage has been recently renovated to create an open-plan living/dining and kitchen area, which is light and airy with modern coastal decor.

The cottage is decorated in neutral tones with splashes of colour in each room to give it a fresh, contemporary feel. Although not completely on one level, Kittiwake is still suitable for guests who can manage a few stairs, as the staircase is not very big. The Seaspray cottages are a five-minute walk from Crantock Beach and about the same to Polly Joke (Porth Joke) Beach, making it a family or surfers haven.

A few minutes' walk away is a pub, serving food and drink with the same fantastic view, as well as a cafe/bistro offering brunch, lunch and dinner, as well as coffees and cream teas. Crantock village is only a five-minute drive away, where there are two more pubs, a Londis grocery store, post office and other village attractions. Outside Kittiwake, guests will benefit from exclusive use of a patio and lawned area that boasts views over Crantock Bay.

Pet friendly accommodation Pet Friendly


Perfect pet-friendly beach accommodation
We stayed at Kittiwake with our 2 dogs in February. The location is wonderful with a view of the sea. This is a great dog friendly property which had all we needed, very clean and very comfortable. We would not hesitate to recommend this property and have already booked our next holiday at Kittiwake with our dogs.

Great pet friendly accommodation - repeat visitors
We've stayed at Kittiwake for the past four years now, and can honestly say this is one of the nicest pet friendly places we?ve stayed in (and we?ve stayed in some terrible ones!). It 's really difficult to find high quality, modern accommodation when you've got a four legged friend but Kittiwake fits the bill. It's a five minute walk to the beach and a pub, and only ten minutes walk into Crantock where there are a couple more pubs and a shop. The accommodation itself is modern and well equipped (as you can see from the internal pictures) with everything you'd need should you want to self-cater. It's hardly the ?car garage? as described in the previous review, and you can certainly see the sea from the living area while seated (although it's sometimes a little obscured from the garden if the hedge has grown a bit high, but you know, living plants grow!). Kittiwake is one of three properties which form part of Seaspray cottages (great if you're a big group but want separate accommodation - the other two are also let by Sykes but with different owners) and the end of one of the gardens runs side by side with Kittiwakes patio area starts, but it's hardly an intrusion. We choose Kittiwake because it's the furthest away from the others and isn?t really overlooked, and has its own garden. There are building works going on, and have been for the last three years, which we were warned about with every booking, but we have never had any problems with anything from the site (and the big construction work is all but finished now). We've also never had any problems with noise from the other properties, but maybe we're heavy sleepers!?! A change of linen and towels is also offered if you're there longer than a week, which is a nice touch and isn?t offered by lots of places. We like it a lot, and would certainly recommend to our family and friends (but only as long as they don't book when we want to go!).

Falsely advertised!
Upon arrival to kittiwake, we were surprised that the above picture of the holiday home is not actually the place you will stay. It is in fact a converted car garage to the rear of the advertised property. It has sea views if you stand up in the kitchen, but not from The garden. Lots of building work next door which definitely wasn?t finished summer 2019 and we had a very near miss with a scaffolding plank on our car. You can hear everything in the building behind which isn?t good when they have children awake at 6am. You are overlooked every which way. Contacted the owner who is apparently happy with their false advertising. Below is a picture of the actual building you will stay in.
