  • "We had a fantastic 10 day stay at the Bolthole."

    The accommodation was perfect for my partner and I. The accommodation was spotless and the perfect size for two. Its location within Crantock Village cannot be faulted less than 30 seconds to the local shop - fantastic bread by the way! A two minute walk to two great village pubs. The beach is less than 10 minutes. Our two dogs can with us and they loved the many walks around Crantock. I could not fault the Bolthole all the village we will be back!

  • "A wonderful break which was much needed!"

    The two of us and our 2 dogs spent 3 nights at the Bolthole and it could not have been better. The booking was easy, the information provided was accurate and comprehensive and the local agent, Pauline, gave prompt answers to the few questions we had. The property is exactly as described and of a very high standard and the welcome cream tea was much appreciated. The location is perfect with proximity to the beach and local walks and the village pubs and shop were ideal. We had a fantastic time and will be returning!

  • "It's a lovely property in a perfect location and ideal for a couple."

    We reported an issue with the ice compartment in the fridge, which drips and water then accumulates on items kept in the fridge. We suspect this is because the fridge itself has not been installed correctly and is leaning backwards inside the unit. Certainly the door leans inwards at the top, outwards at the bottom.

    The cottage kitchen could do with a little work on it the dishwasher is not fixed in properly . But that doesn’t take anything away from a wonderful cottage that is perfect for a quiet stay .

  • "My partner and I stayed here for a week in February 2022 and enjoyed it thoroughly, the beach was only a 10 minute walk and there was a pub and shop nearby which was helpful."

    The cottage itself was lovely, however I do wish there would’ve been blinds or mottled windows at the front of the cottage for security purposes as at nighttime it feels as though people can see in. The only problem we encountered was that storm Eunice hit and a request to check out slightly later than planned to avoid the worst of the storm (red weather warning) was not accommodated and we ended up having to leave before the storm began (5am) to make sure we would be safe. It was slightly difficult to find at first but I wouldn’t have any reason not to recommend it to others. Lovely cream tea upon arrival and overall a really nice week away. Thank you.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at The Bolthole!"

    The accommodation itself was perfect for us, clean, fresh and modern but also really cosy. Everything we could have needed was provided, along with some really nice additional touches that we weren't expecting. The outside space was great for the dogs. The location was fantastic as well, right in the heart of the village, with facilities all within easy walking distance. We stayed for 3 nights and would have happily stayed for longer!

  • "We arrive at the bolthole tired after a long journey, we were so please to find that tea, coffee, fresh milk and a proper clotted cream tea was waiting for us, delicious."

    There was fresh flowers and a bottle of bubbly too. The place was instantly warm and inviting. Parking is good, right outside in a shared driveway. Crantock is a pretty village, the shop next door was well stocked and the local pubs are a two minute walk, the old Albion was more us and the food is amazing. The Cornishman was lovely and all very new, we used both, the airstream burger van is a bonus too, really good food. The beach is gorgeous, so clean, but if it’s the sea you’re after be prepared to walk ;) The supermarkets are a few minutes drive and your in the middle for other attractions such as Tintagel and lands end, both about an hour away by car. We would definitely recommend the bolthole and hope to return soon.

    Ideal for 2 people and 2 dogs. The cottage is modern, clean and well equipped. We received all the appliance leaflets by email before our trip with lots of other useful information about the area. Recommended it to a couple we met who had visited Crantock and said they would love to stay there. Excellent location too with a 10 minute walk to the beach, 2 mins to shop and a choice of 2 pubs. Also a lovely cafe that served pizza Thursday-Sunday evenings. Brilliant stay and hope to be back.

    Small but perfectly formed. Absolutely lovely for a couple (or with a baby). Everything very clean and well presented and the fresh flowers and welcome pack was a great touch.

    Right in the centre of the village but with a small private garden where you can always catch some sun (or shade).

The property

The Bolthole is a converted farm building and is an ideal base for a couple, sleeping up to two adults and one child under two in a cot, located in the centre of picturesque Crantock village, on the north coast of Cornwall a short walk to Crantock beach and the sea.

This self catering cottage by the sea, is within the curtilage of The Orchard but has its own entrance, parking and outside space.

This cottage is all on one level with an ensuite bathroom, making it ideal for those who prefer not to go upstairs.

The Bolthole will appeal to those who enjoy being able to walk to the beach and the pub, yet be a short drive from all of Cornwall’s sporting and other attractions.

The front door opens into the light and airy kitchen/living room which is furnished with a very comfortable sofa and an ottoman, dining table & chairs for two, flat screen TV, DVD & HiFi.

The kitchen is fitted with stainless steel appliances and comes complete with an electric hob, double fitted oven, fridge (with ice box) and washing machine.

Outside there is a private, enclosed seating area ideal for outside dining or just sitting and relaxing.

Five minutes walk away is Crantock’s sandy beach which is suitable for families and surfers alike.

Two minutes walk away are two pubs, a Londis grocery store, Post Office, art gallery and the church of St Carantoc.

As well as driving, you can fly to Newquay airport, which is only eight miles away, where taxis and hire cars can be booked.

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.
