  • "This was our 2nd visit to Penreath this year and it was again very comfortable and enjoyable."

    The 'Welcome Back' cream tea pack which was delivered midweek was a very nice surprise, so thank you very much owners! I am sure we will return yet again in the future.

  • "Really comfortable house, ensuite made it great for two families to share."

    Thanks for making it so dog friendly. Beautiful views from the house and gardens and the patios either side were great for breakfast and an evening drink. A couple of steamer chairs on the garden would have made it ideal for getting some sun whilst waiting for the family to get up.

    Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. There are four Lafuma sunbeds at the house but as it was early in the season they were probably still being stored in the shed but easily accessible. I will put a note in the welcome folder for future reference and hope that you will enjoy using them if you return. Property Owner

  • "A delightful cottage with a large garden and spectacular sea views."

    The owners have thought of absolutely everything to make it 'home from home'. It was immaculately clean and very comfortable. Our two young dogs loved the freedom and size of the garden. Would highly recommend this property and we look forward to returning again one day.

  • "This was our second stay at Pentreath."

    We stayed for a week in 2022 and booked for 2 weeks this time. While we were there we found the cottage was not booked for the following week so we snapped it up and stayed for 3 weeks altogether. It's a bit big for just 2 of us but means we get our own space during quiet times. This is probably the best cottage we have stayed in over the years but there are one or two improvements (imho) that could be made. We used the 3 steps down to the sunroom most of the time but a handrail to help with the steps would be an advantage for me. Similarly in the shower - a handhold just gives a bit more confidence to those of us in our advancing years. The listing on Sykes is broadly accurate but it talks about a £200 bond being payable on arrival which was not required and the times of arrival and departure are also not accurate. We would like to go back next year but mobility issues may mean that isn't possible.

  • "We have had a marvellous week at Pentreath and thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage is well appointed and comfortable for 4 couples, with several seating areas inside and out. The 7 minute walk to the beach at Crantock is not for the faint hearted given the height of the dunes you have to descend so we chose to go via the road to the car park which was around a 15 min walk.We have stayed in Crantock each summer for many years now and the views from this cottage are exceptional and the garden is a huge bonus too. Luna, a cocker spaniel puppy, had plenty room to run around and always found a shady spot when needed. A safe enclosed garden she didn't even try to escape from.

  • "This holiday was nothing short of perfect."

    We all absolutely loved it including our two dogs who were on the beach everyday! The cottage was spotless when we arrived and the facilities were faultless. We’re so glad we found this hidden gem which is only a short walk away from the village (and numerous pubs!!) When we arrived we noticed there was an aga which can be switched on by request for an additional £10 (I think!) a day which we didn’t know anything about. Although we didn’t need it in the summer, it would have been perfect for winter breaks. We will definitely be returning back in the near future! Thank you!!

  • "This was our first stay at Pentreath with a family group of 6 people from 71 to 8 years old plus 1 dog."

    The cottage was very spacious and well laid out with plenty of room for everyone. The rooms were all lovely with high standard of decoration and fixtures. The kitchen area was really good for socialising in the evenings. We really appreciated the little touches on our arrival like hot drink packs, biscuits, milk in the fridge. The views were just amazing and the position of the cottage was ideal to get to numerous beaches. There were only a couple of issues, one of the showers (bedroom nearest the carpark) stopped working and although I left a voicemail message for the contact I had I never heard back - luckily there are plenty of showers so no problem for us. Also one of our party had a strong allergic reaction to the feather quilt and on checking there was no non-allergenic option so she had to buy her own. It would be great to have this as an option. Also the garden isn't really secure for a dog as within the first hour our dog had realised that the verge on the side of the carpark literally runs to the top of the fence and jumped out. Had to be on a lead in the garden after that. We would definitely come back to Pentreath - the positives far outweighed the few issues.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Pentreath. I am sorry no-one got back to you about the shower, I will check with our property manager to ensure that this doesn't happen again. I will arrange to have a hypoallergenic duvet available in the future. The garden is as dog proof as we can make it and this is the first time guests have mentioned their dog getting out this way. I will check with our gardener to see what else we can do to prevent this. I am glad that, in spite of the issues raised, you feel that the positives far outweighed the negatives and we look forward to your return Property Owner

  • "The views make this cottage they are incredible!"

    We loved the large enclosed garden for the dog’s and with the weather being so mild enjoyed sitting out in the sun with the provided seating. 10 minutes walk down to the centre of Crantock where you are welcomed into the Albion pub that does a great Sunday lunch. Don’t be put off by the Sunday-Sunday booking we found it the best day to come down as the traffic was better. The beds also super comfortable with down quilts, lovely! The only thing that would have improved the catering side is better pans, they had previously domed from the heat of the hob so everything fried slid to the sides of the two frying pans provided.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Pentreath. We have taken your comments on board and have replaced the frying pans. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed a couple of years ago at the property."

    It has beautiful views of Crantock beach, is large 4 bedroomed. Most surprising was the lack of contact (except by an initial call to get the key code, and a text message) this is out of keeping with any of our experiences in similar properties over many years. Nobody visited us. Inside nothing seems to have changed much. Two of the electric showers are a completely inadequate trickle II can't imagine if you were a sporty surfer needing a full on hot shower you would be very disappointed. If you wanted a bath that would take ages to fill because of the boiler type. One female of our party who slim, nearly got trapped in the bath so what a big surfer would do God knows. We were 4 but if 8 people had stayed cooking for them would be difficult. The pots and pans are just not adequate for a party of this size. "dog friendly" I was not aware of any special or extra facility to justify charges. No throws to protect sofas, no shower or drier, no treats. In summary to continue to approach and justify the cost of rental this property needs upgrading. It didnt spoil our stay but neither did it encourage us to return. Which we won't be doing.

    Thank you for you feedback on our property and I am glad you enjoyed your stay despite your comments. I am sorry that you felt that there was a lack of contact as you should have met the property manager on your arrival. We understand that most guests would prefer not to be visited during their stay and there is a number in our information folder for our property manager if you encounter any problems. As far as the showers are concerned, we are aware that there is a water pressure problem, and we have just had new showers installed to try and improve this, the bath is a standard size and unfortunately again because of the pressure takes time to fill. However we will talk to our plumber to see what else we can do to improve the pressure. We regularly have a house full of guests and no-one has ever complained about the lack of cooking utensils, in fact frequently we have comments on how well equipped the house is. As far as facilities for dogs are concerned we make no claims for these on our site. There is a hose outside to rinse them down and hopefully a good rub with a towel will dry them, which works with our two springer spaniels. Regards Amanda Gardner Property Owner

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.
