“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)
