  • "Lovely cottage with the added bonus of double parking outside."

    We have been to Crantock numerous times over the years, beautiful place with welcoming friendly people in pubs and shops. Tracey is always on hand to answer questions. Chocolate, wine, milk and coffee on arrival was lovely touch. Brilliant holiday. If i had to criticise anything, the bathrooms sealants could do with replacing as not very white but other than minor niggly things the cottage is really cosy with everything you need.

    Thanks so much for the feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We had noticed that the sealant needed replacing and it is planned for later this month. Best wishes Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage, well equipped especially for my disabled parents."

    The photos on the website do not do it justice it was exceptional. Only thing I'd change would be to have a tumble dryer.

  • "We loved our stay at the Blacksmith’s cottage!"

    The cottage has been refurbished to a high standard and was spotlessly clean. It had everything we needed and we especially liked the warm outdoor shower that was perfect for the dog. The cottage is ideally located in the lovely village of Crantock and is a short 5 mins walk to the pub and a 10 mins walk to the beach. We would highly recommend a stay at the Blacksmith’s cottage and would definitely love to return ourselves!

  • "Blacksmith's Cottage is a lovely old cottage refurbished to a high standard."

    A lot of thought has been put into making sure everything you need is supplied. We had a great week in Cornwall, my first visit. The cottage is an ideal base to explore Cornwall. 5 mins walk to a shop and 2 pubs for food, 10 minutes to the beach, 20mins to Cbay a lovely Bistro. It was very easy to communicate with Tracy who looked after us while we're there with anything we were unsure of.

  • "Great cottage in the heart of a beautiful village, 2 pubs and shop less than 5 mins walk."

    The cottage is well equipped, comfortable and reasonably clean, dining table and table mats were dirty. The garden area has some decent furniture and would be great in good weather but the whole area was in need of a good clean and tidying up! Would definitely go back!

  • "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)

  • "Love this cottage and stayed twice before."

    However, very disappointed with the cleaning - cobwebs in two of the rooms; dust and grime on top of sockets and pictures; dust and crumbs in cupboard; bottles left in garden and water in kettle and Nespresso machine so they obviously had not been emptied and cleaned. It was evident the cottage had not been not deep cleaned. Bedroom doors squeaked very noisily and housekeeper failed to drop off WD40 as promised.

  • "The location of the cottage was perfect to enjoy not only the beauty of the quaint village of Crantock but a great base for seeing all of Cornwall."

    The cottage was of the best standard and the design and interior fittings were very well selected. It had everything you would need on a holiday whether travelling on your own, with older or younger children and very dog friendly. I will definitely look at rebooking in the future!

  • "Cottage very well equipped and a lot of thought into furnishings."

    Bonus of outside shower for dogs, although we’d taken our portable one. Shame we had weekend of storm Dennis. Still managed to go out and about, got very wet and blown away. Fire a welcome treat afterwards. Local pub short walk from cottage very welcoming,with lovely food.

    It was close to all amenities and an easy walk to the beach with our dogs. We would definitely like to visit the cottage and beautiful Crantock again ♥️

  • "Perfect location but cottage is tired, not clean to the standards we usually go for."

    The whole run up to the holiday with poor comments suddenly on the website and it being no longer for hire and then it being sorted out as new owners was worrying and a little stressful. We got an email saying holiday cancelled!! However it was not?! Hopefully new owners sort the place out it has so much promise!

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.
