    “If you are looking at Blacksmith's Cottage as a place to stay then you already know what an amazing place Crantock is!”


    We have just returned from our stay at Blacksmith's Cottage & it most certainly lived up to our expectations - & we have stayed in many places in Crantock (We would happily return to any but like to keep trying new ones). The cottage was centrally located, just up the hill from the shop & pub. Only 10 mins walk to the beach. The cottage was perfect for our family of 5 adults, each having their own double bedroom. The bedding & towels were of a high quality. The kitchen was spacious & extremely well equipped, with everything you needed & more - if you did want to self cater. The kitchen is open plan leading to a sunny dining area. The lounge & snug area were fabulous for cosy evenings, plenty of comfy seats for all. Being summer, we didn't light the wood burner, but I can imagine that on an autumn evening if would be very welcoming. There was a downstairs bathroom & upstairs shower room which was of a high standard. Off the main bedroom upstairs was a spacious dressing area - perfect for getting ready for nights out. The outdoor area was the best we have had Crantock - brilliant for outside breakfast in the sun, relaxing in after a day at the beach & family barbeques. It was also safe for the dog to roam in. All in all - Blacksmith's Cottage is highly recommended. (The only negative I would have is the lack of a tumble dryer)

The property

Blacksmith’s Cottage is a traditional, Cornish-built cottage at the top end of the pretty village of Crantock, opposite Crantock View.

This property was the original Blacksmith’s cottage and dates back to the 1730s, situated in a great location with plenty of parking, the interior design is a modern and light decor, giving the rooms a warm and welcoming feeling throughout.

Inside you will find three well-presented bedrooms: a king-size resting on the ground floor and perfect for those with limited mobility, whilst the first floor provides an extra king-size and a twin with zip and link features so it can be made into a super king-size upon request.

The family bathroom has an elegant bath and shower over, so you can decide how best to prepare for your day.

The ground floor boasts a wonderful open-plan kitchen/diner, with contemporary appliances, so you can easily rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole family and plenty of seating to enjoy your meals and some quality family time together.

The sitting room is the perfect spot to relax and unwind on the provided sofas, and delight in the Sky TV to keep you entertained.

Outside, there is a south-facing garden to the rear which is on two levels with stone steps linking them.

The higher level has outside rattan corner seating and a fabulous setting with lush tropical planting and lighting.

There is an outside dining area with picnic table and chairs, with the top level being a real sun-trap.

Blacksmith’s Cottage will appeal to those who like to be within walking distance of Crantock village’s facilities, as well as being just a short drive from all of Cornwall’s sporting, leisure and other attractions.

Crantock beach is just a ten minute walk from the property, making it an excellent spot for surfers and beach lovers.

Travel into the thriving seaside town of Newquay for a plethora of attractions, including the popular Newquay beach, where you and your little ones can explore the grounds and visit the animals.

Visit the Tranance Gardens for some scenic walking, whilst the nearby rivers and lakes provide excellent opportunities for you to get involved with a variety of watersporting activities.

About the location


Newquay 4.5 miles.

Crantock is a small Cornish village, just a short walk from the beach, 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, as well as National Trust properties, traditional pubs and outstanding restaurants. Newquay itself is a visitor's paradise with a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, plus attractions such as the Sea Life Centre, Newquay Zoo and nearby Dairyland and Eden Project.
