Colgrease Farm Cottages

Two charming, stone-built cottages, set in the grounds of a beautiful 18th century farmhouse at the end of a long unmade farm track, outside the popular village of Crantock, near Newquay. Converted from a traditional stone barn, these cottages make the perfect base for families or groups of friends wishing to explore the wonderful west coast of Cornwall. Each cottage has two pretty bedrooms, a bathroom, and boast a delightful living area with a well-equipped kitchen and a dining area, perfect for enjoying family meals and planning tomorrow’s escapades. There is also a comfortable sitting area to relax and unwind in after a day exploring Cornwall’s coastline. Outside each cottage you will find a private, enclosed patio with furniture. Sit back and soak up the summer sunshine with a glass of wine or a good book. Just two miles away, the pretty village of Crantock is peppered with stone cottages, tea rooms, a friendly pub and several village shops, where you can pick up your morning paper. Take a relaxing stroll along the mile of golden sand at Crantock Beach or visit the busier surfing beaches of Newquay, which is a short drive away and a prime spot for watersports, including surfing, body boarding and sailing. The town also plays host to horse riding stables, swimming pools, tennis and squash courts and three golf courses! Slightly further afield is the Goss Moor National Nature Reserve, wonderful for walking and a haven for wildlife enthusiasts with recordings of 29 species of butterfly and over 70 species of bird that breed on the site. With all of this on your doorstep, these two cottages are a wonderfully peaceful base for a holiday spent exploring the beautiful Cornish coast.

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.
