  • "Pentreath was excellent."

    An ideal venue overlooking Crantock beach.

  • "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

  • "A lovely house close to the beach and Crantock."

    The village is lovely, with a couple of pubs and a village shop. The beach is beautiful with great waves and the estuary provides a calmer area for playing or paddle boarding. We will definitely return in the future.

  • "Amazing house with everything required for a comfortable and relaxing holiday."

    Great garden for the dog too with breathtaking views. None of us wanted to leave!

  • "We have stayed around Newquay many times but never at Crantock."

    The house was lovely, really well equipped and the views are stunning. I can understand why people go back time after time. One of the things we have found in previous houses is there are never enough bathrooms when you have a large party, not the case here, everyone is well catered for.

  • "My family loved Pentreath & would like to stay there again."

    Everything was good except that it was difficult to get hot water from some of the taps.

  • "Great location and much more spacious than we imagined."

    High quality fixtures and fittings making it a home from home. Beautiful sunsets. Perfect for two families. We would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a relaxing holiday in the area. Beaches fantastic and a short walk across the estuary into the nicer part of Newquay. our only suggestion would be to make some recycling bins available and then have it taken away by the service personnel

  • "A perfect holiday for us - apart from the stunning views the cottage was very well equipped, especially the kitchen."

    One small point that might be worth thinking about is a few sun loungers for the garden. I would most certainly book this holiday again and would recommend it for those who like a bit of peace and quiet and/or long coastal walks.

  • "No sunbeds / comfy chairs to sit in the garden."

    Otherwise, cottage is well equipped. Tiles /grouting in one of the ensuites needed a good clean.

  • "I love this cottage and the local manager I have been coming here for 7 years."

    It really feels like home from home. However this year looks like the last year as the prices have gone up 50% for the same week next year since Sykes have taken over.

  • "We have gone to Pentreath for the Feb half term for many many years and were extremely disappointed to discover that on trying to book for 2020 a couple of days after returning this year that the week was already been booked by someone else."

    For us that does not reflect well on the change of agency to Sykes

  • "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

    Very well equipped and maintained house. Only 2 points to raise: hoover is rubbish and if the hose outside was a little longer wetsuits could be washed away from the path. Everything else great.

  • "Lovely property."

    It would have been good to receive a call or text to check if everything was ok during the stay. Grass was too long and should have been cut. Parking very tight for 3 cars. An enjoyable stay overall with beautiful views.

  • "This was our 3rd visit to Pentreath."

    Which is an amazing holiday location. What ever the weather you have stunning views over Crantock bay. The bungalow is very comfortable and well equipped and always emaculatly clean. The garden is ideal for an energetic dog! We have booked with Cornwall Holiday Cottages for 6 years now. The personal friendly attention we have received from Delia and her team has made the process quite special. I hope now Sykes has taken over this isn’t lost.

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.
