The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    Egret View is an impressive detached house in an elevated position with everchanging views over the River Gannel. This is a dream retreat for adults and children alike, with beautiful interiors, scenic entertaining spaces and unique play features throughout.

    The Gannel is a turquoise river lined with rich greenery which runs down to the much-loved Crantock beach. Enjoy crabbing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding or simply sit beside the gentle river flow and watch an abundance of wildlife roam about. At low tide, take the walk along the river banks to Crantock's steep sand dunes and foaming seas, a perfect family friendly beach which calls out for days of adventure.

    On the other side of the headland, just a few minutes walk away, sits Fistral Beach. World famous for its epic surf and spirit, Fistral invites you to dive headfirst into the action- just grab a board and get amongst the swell, before peeling some fire-pit flamed king prawns and sampling a cocktail at the iconic beachside restaurant complex.

    Across the cliff top path towards Little Fistral and its surrounding coves, you'll discover a more leisurely feel. Sand and shingle spill out between barnacle-dotted pools, perfect for carving out a secret space which feels like it belongs only to you, away from the busy chatter of the main bay.

    Fancy stretching your legs? Wait for low tide and take a stroll around the headland, past Newquay's historical Huer's Hut and across the town's seven beaches, rewarding yourself with an ice cream when you're done. Watergate Bay is just a 10-minute drive away with its rolling surf and eateries, or Perranporth and its quirky shops can also be reached by car.

"The stay was relaxing, the house had everything that you need. All the little details had been thought about. It was a fabulous family space for the rainy days and close to a lot of places to visit. The view of the river was fantastic and I wish I lived there full time!"
E Pearson, April 2023
"Our second stay here and it was just as wonderful. We love Cornwall this time of year and enjoyed a bit more exploring. We would recommend St Agnes and the Peterville Inn, Holywell Bay beach, and the Fish house at Fistral. The house was an absolute treat, we wanted to stay forever! Thank you for sharing this super space."
Lancett, October 2022
"We all felt the property exceeded our expectations. It seemed bigger in real life! Great location for paddle boarding on the river and the beach. None of us wanted to leave."
