Guest Reviews


    • “Honeycrock was tastefully furnished and very well-equipped.”

    Mrs Taylor, Chichester, July 2015

    • “Honeycrock was one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. The quaint and picturesque surroundings made for a beautiful setting, which combined with delightful weather gave us a holiday to remember. The hosts were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Also In terms of cleanliness and hygiene the cottage was faultless. I would therefore recommend this holiday cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing break.”

    Mrs Cwikla, Halesowen, June 2015

    • “We loved this cottage, it was in a lovely location and was relaxing and cosy. We had everything we needed.”

    Mrs Davidge, Hertford, April 2015

    • “We received a warm welcome which was extended to a pleasant note in the hall, six new laid eggs and some splendid scones and jam to tuck into! The level of cleanliness throughout the cottage, upstairs and downstairs, equalled anything we had found in our extensive travels to many parts of the world where we have enjoyed some exceptional quality accommodation. There was a 'wholesomeness' that immediately gave us the feel good factor and seemed to guarantee this holiday as being a stunning success from the outset. We slept soundly listening to the silence. This is the first ever property where we simply enjoyed every minute and would love to revisit in the near future. We would thoroughly recommend Honeycrock to anyone seeking something special!!”

    Dr Woodward, Bristol, September 2014

    • “It was spotless very well equipped. It was a little off the beaten track but was such an ideal place to chill and was so relaxing. The hospitality was excellent with a little welcome pack of cream tea, clotted cream, scones, tea, coffee and 6 freshly laid eggs from their chickens. It was only 5 minutes away from some beautiful beaches, Crantock, Fistral and Holywell to name but a few. I would highly recommend this cottage. Only wished we had gone for 2 weeks and not 1.”

    Mr Porter, Rotherham, August 2014

    • “Total peace and tranquillity of the cottage, which was exceptionally well equipped. The owners went one step more on every level; from a beautifully home made cream tea, eggs from their own hens, a vase of roses from the garden in the lounge; absolutely nothing was overlooked - games puzzles, books in abundance; everything was just perfect. Superbly maintained!”

    Mrs Green, Littlehampton, June 2014

About the location


Newquay 4.5 miles.

Crantock is a small Cornish village set back from the coast close to the popular resort of Newquay. If you want to escape the crowds, yet still be close to the action, this is the place to be. There's stunning countryside all around and lots of pretty villages to explore; however, it is the coast that dominates. Enjoy superb walks along the coastal path over dramatic cliff-tops, or magnificent surfing on beaches stretching from Watergate Bay in the north to Fistral beach in the centre of Newquay and on down the coast. There are a number of golf courses in the area, National Trust properties, traditional pubs and outstanding restaurants. Newquay itself is a visitor's paradise with a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as the Sea Life Centre, Newquay Zoo and nearby Dairyland and Eden Project.
