Many parts of Crantock are maintained by the National Trust, including the village 'Round Garden' and the headland coastal paths. Walkers and ramblers find a haven as they walk for mile upon mile along the natural, rugged coastline. The coastal path can be accessed within a short stroll from Ivy Cottage, making it an ideal base for all outdoor pursuits, whatever the season and whatever the weather.

One of Crantock's inns, The Old Albion Inn is a beautiful thatched building, historically renowned for its rich tapestry of smugglers' tales. Today it sells home-cooked meals, bar snacks, real ales and a good selection of drinks for all tastes. It still retains many of its original features from times gone by, one of which being the original smuggler's escape tunnel, used to avoid capture.

Opposite The Old Albion Inn is The Cornishman Inn, ideally suited to families and again serves a good choice of food and drink to suit all.

The village's ancient church, St Carantoc Church, has been established on this site since 600AD, surviving the trials of historic battles and of course, smugglers.
