Luxury apartment with panoramic views over Crantock Beach and The Gannel Estuary
About Sue Rule
Sue and Jason, we recently purchased the tower after falling in love with it having been looking for some time. We are both constantly drawn to the sea Cornwall/ Devon Being our favourite UK destinations when travelling in our motorhome. We were particularly looking for south facing as so many of the places we looked at spent all the day in the shade.
Sue Rule purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Sue Rule chose Newquay
If it's all about location, the Tower has to be pretty well as good as it gets. With two of the best beaches in Cornwall minutes from your doorstep along with great restaurants and coastal walks boredom is not an option even for the most restless of us. Sun on the south facing balcony from sunrise almost to sunset which is quite rare on the coast. Also a balcony has been installed to the tower room with probably the best view on the Pentire Peninsular.
What makes this Apartment unique
All the guests talk about the views from the property which regularly stop you in your tracks and send you into some sort of hypnotic trance. Whether it's the curling waves on Crantock beach or the surreal turquoise colour of the water in the Gannel which I'm led to believe comes from the type of sand in this area. The garden is a great place to picnic with a storage shed, and outdoor shower if you get back a little sandy. Although there are many, one of our favourite restaurant/pub to walk to is Lewinnick Lodge built in the side of a cliff with super views out to sea roughly 10 minutes walk. The main balcony to the lounge/dinner has a 4 meter bifold door. This means the Lounge-Diiner can be opened out straight onto the most amazing sea views. There is nothing better than dining on the balcony while watching the changing view as the tide comes in or out.

Fantastic apartment in great location
Very well kept apartment in a great location with amazing views. Would definitely stay again.
Beauty, peace , tranquility and comfort. What more could you ask for?
First impression is that of coastal decor done to perfection. And that is precisely what you have around you. The views of the Gannel River and Crantock Beach are breathtaking. I never felt the need to go anywhere else. We did travel around Cornwall always ready to return to the beautiful “Tower”. My grandsons were delighted with their room at the top of the house, the oldest was in heaven being able to “just hop on down to the Gannel for a dip” or sitting on the balcony watching the people on the river with their paddle boards. At low tide watching all the dogs have fun in the sand and water was so much fun. I would truly recommend this property to everyone who wants a good vacation in a beautiful surrounding. We had some of our local friends visit while we were here and they were so amazed at how beautiful the property is.
We would definitely come again when we return to Newquay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay over the late spring bank holiday. The views from the apartment were breathtaking. The apartment was well equipped and had everything we required.
We will return
Feeling very Pentire
It’s was wonderful the location the views the highest standards both cleaning and furnishings we all loved it
Glorious Easter weekend
We had a fantastic long weekend staying at the Tower. The apartment was immaculate and in a perfect location very close to the beach. The children loved watching the tides change in the Gannel estuary and running along the riverbed at low tide to Crantock beach. We found the you tube videos and restaurant tips very helpful. We are looking forward to our next stay at the Tower.
We stayed between Christmas and New Year and had a fantastic break. The apartment is beautifully presented and well equipped - we wanted for nothing. Lovely gesture of a welcome hamper and a bottle of fizz in the fridge and greatly appreciated. The views from every window are stunning and the location is so peaceful yet so close to the main hub of Newquay too. We visited family and was the main purpose of the visit. Would highly recommend although be mindful that there are a lot of steps up to the main accommodation so not for the less mobile. The location for us is perfect and we will definitely be back. Thank you
Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It makes our day to know guest enjoy the Tower as much as we hope they do, and we look forward to your return.
Is the closest of the two beaches. It is a beautiful U shaped sandy beach backed by high sand dunes and cliffs, ideal for families. Out to sea there is a small picturesque island and waves to bring a smile to body boarders and surfers alike. If you prefer paddleboading or kayaking the Gannel offers around 3 miles of calmer flowing water. Fistral Beach is approximately 4 min walk from The Tower and hosts The World Surf Championships.
Newquay Airport is only 7 miles away
For surfers, Fistral beach is only a 4 min walk With Newquay Town is a 20 min walk
For foodies Rick Steins Padstow is a 30 min drive
Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are both around a 30 min drive and the picturesque towns of St Ives, St Agnes and Perranporth are well worth a visit.
For walkers you can access The South West Coastal Path across The Gannel Estuary via the tidal footbridge and enjoy the spectacular views of Crantock, Joke and Holywell.
Introduction: Sue my wife, who is a big F1 fan and enjoys walking, zumba and gardening, puts most of her energy into keeping Tom, our son, and myself in order. I'm Jason and into classic cars, motorcycles, paddleboarding and photography and camping.
Our common interest is touring in our motorhome in which have managed to cover most of the south west coast.
Crantock and Pentire have always been our personal favourite and since being introduced to the area by friends, we always seemed to be drawn back.
It was inevitable when the Tower came up for sale that we should at least take a look. Fortunately or unfortunately for our bank balance we both fell in love with it and couldn't let it slip through our fingers.
