  • "Excellent cottage."

    What I did find that was different to other cottages was the communication from the owners and property manager. I was contacted with very usefull info from both the owner and the property manager in the days leading up to our trip down to Cornwall. They have a purpose made APP dedicated to the cottage and the beautiful village of Crantock with info on places to visit - a real gem of an idea. The cottage itself is prestine and loved every aspect of it. The enclosed garden is ideal for dogs as well. The cottage is literally 2 mins walk to 2 pubs and a lovely cafe - all of these are not to be missed out. The amazing Crantock beach is only around 10 mins to walk to as well. I could go on for ever about this property and village. You won't be dissapointed at all. 5 star holiday cottage :)

  • "We had a lovely holiday stay in Apple Barn and the enclosed garden was perfect for our dog."

    Pauline (Housekeeping) was lovely in taking care of us and making us feel welcome and the welcome email and handy app from the owners prior to arrival is a brilliant idea so you have everything at your finger tips if you if you need it. For me this would be 5 stars if it had a larger bathroom and softer mattress in one of the rooms. The current shower room which is just off the kitchen is tiny for a two bed property. Even my 6 foot husband couldn’t sit on the toilet properly because of lack of space which isn’t ideal and could be an issue for even taller occupants. The shower room sink also became quite blocked during our stay, but once the owner was contacted they did say they would sort this straight away before the next guest stay. A lovely place and location to stay. We have stayed in Lavender Barn too before which is across the road and given this is only 1 bed, it feels a much larger property.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. After you mentioned the slow draining bathroom sink at the end of your stay we ended up needing to call out a plumber (Mr Muscle wouldn't sort it!). All resolved now and the drain is back to normal - just a build up of sand over time (the only downside of Apple Barn being so close to a beach I guess). Really appreciate your separate thank you email too and for you saying you'd definitely see us again next year! Fingers crossed you can make it back to Apple Barn. All the best. Property Owner

    Perfect location for anyone wishing to have a relaxing holiday, but also for those wanting a beach or walking holiday. Apple Barn is a property that is definitely home from home, very well equipped and comfortable, the enclosed garden is a real bonus for anyone having a dog. Pauline the property Manager is very welcoming and is always there should you need her. We will definitely be back for future holidays.

  • "Very helpful Pauline who we met on arrival."

    Lovely cottage, excellent location with short walk to beach. Only a few pointers, Need better facilities to segregate rubbish within cottage to aid recycling. New place mats required. Current ones are stained. Cooker hood edges sharp and protruding, hit my head a few times. Spot lights within kick board of kitchen units are hanging out and not fixed in situ. Dishwasher doesn’t clean very well and is small for family of 4. Mention of digital tv on cottage specifications but you need your own log in. Everything else was lovely!! Really enjoyed our stay.

    Thanks for your feedback. We have arranged for an engineer to check the dishwasher, taken a look at the table mats and will also make sure the lights in the kitchen units are fixed in place. Glad you had a nice stay. Take care and hope you see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Apple Barn cottage was a very pleasant and well presented fully equipped cottage, the garden was just perfect with access straight out from the cottage, we had taken our dog with us, this made it a lovely, private place for us to enjoy the sun when we had returned from our morning walking and enjoying the beach."

    The cottage itself was small but very nicely done, the only thing that let it down was that the toilet and shower were down stairs, which wasn’t great if you are someone who gets up in the night, to use the bathroom. For us we would have much preferred to have had no second bedroom and had the bathroom up stairs. This could easily be achieved and it would even be possible to provide both a bathroom and a separate walk in wardrobe room upstairs, should the owners choose to lose one of the bedrooms. This, in our opinion, would make it a much more pleasant stay, as we think if you were a party of more than two people, the property would feel far too cramped. Making these changes would maintain the comfortable environment that exists with just two people staying at the cottage. The only other small issue we had was, that the garden wasn’t secure enough to stop our dog getting through the hedge and out to the car parking area and further. Luckily our dog only did this once or twice and was told off, and as she is a dog that doesn’t like to be in trouble, so she stopped. Though it did mean that we never felt quite relaxed enough to leave her in the garden unwatched, while we were in house preparing food or taking a shower etc. but again this is something that could easily be put right. We would love to see the changes to the cottage that we have suggested, and would be delighted to stay again in the future on many occasions.

  • "Please can you (and holiday cottage let’s in general) start to swap winter quilts over to lighter summer quilts as we hit summertime."

    We were sweltering in bed. You could maybe set an annual reminder for when to do the switch.

    Thank you for your feedback. We ordered lighter duvets as soon as you made this request, but unfortunately they didn't arrive before the end of your holiday. The lighter duvets will be ready for you to use should you decide to stay with us again. Hope you had a relaxing break. All the best. Property Owner

    The electronic guide to the property including working instructions to appliances and the general information supplied is excellent. The property was very clean and the local contact (Pauline) really efficient and helpful.

  • "Nice comfortable property and in a great location to explore the village and surrounding area."

    The rules around dogs IMO make the property not dog friendly and the owners should review with a view to relaxing. We had to take our dog down the lane for him to do his toilet business…however I do understand that the lawn doesn’t want to be damaged but if a property is dog friendly then this should be accepted. Pauline (housekeeper) was very welcoming and helpful. Few things need replacing - knives (in knife block) weren’t that sharp and the frying pan was well used and not non-stick any more.

    Thanks so much for your feedback. We think Pauline is brilliant too!! We will check the knife set + pan asap. We always try to stay on top of this stuff so thanks for putting it on our radar. When it comes to your other comment, we have a dog too and so can understand why you might find it easier to allow your pet to use the garden for their toilet breaks. However, when it comes to dogs, you’ll hopefully appreciate that we have to balance the expectations of and be fair to all our guests. So, whilst we want to make the Barn as dog friendly as possible, we are conscious that people without a four legged friend also stay with us. This is why we ask our guests not to let their dog use the garden as a toilet - otherwise the grass wouldn’t last 5 minutes and there’s the risk of unpleasant surprises being inadvertently left for others to find (we do our best to check the garden on each changeover, but dogs can be sneaky!). For similar reasons, we want to maintain the standard inside the Barn, which is why we request that dogs are kept off furniture etc. Believe it or not, when we stay at the Barn, we follow the same rules and take our dog to the lane to do her business. She is also restricted to a dog blanket on the floor (no matter how much she pleads to sit with us). We hope this explains our rules on dogs. Fingers crossed, both you and your pet feel able to visit us again. Take care and all the best. Family Burton Property Owner

  • "Apple Barn is a beautifully appointed property."

    It is extremely clean and comfortable. There's ample crockery and utensils in the kitchen. The open plan lounge and kitchen makes the house feel bright and airy. The welcome pack and flowers were much appreciated. It's in a great position being only minutes to the pubs and shop. The beach is a leasurely 10 minutes stroll. Allocated parking is a great asset as that could be difficult in the busy summer months. Pauline was helpful and we couldn't fault the property. We did take our little dog with us who would have been able to get through the hedge if left unattended so I would say the garden is not totally dog proof. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.

    The owner and Pauline both got in touch prior to our stay to ensure a smooth arrival and checkin. The location is excellent, a 10 mins stroll to the picturesque Crantock beach. The village has a couple of pubs a shop and cafe, so local options available although as we went in peak season it was competitive to get a booking to eat anywhere. The washing machine was broken for most of our stay which was an inconvenience but Pauline helped by providing extra towels and a goodwill gesture was offered of a partial refund which was appreciated. Overall, a great stay, helped by a brilliant week of sunny weather. Would definitely recommend.

    Extremely well equipped and super comfy beds. It has a lovely garden to sit and relax in and enjoy the sun. It’s also a real bonus in Crantock to have a parking space for the car right beside the property. The owners have also produced an app which we down loaded prior to our visit and it gave all the relevant information required for the cottage and our subsequent stay. It was excellent to have everything in one place, from directions to get there, right through to departure. No more sifting through the old style manuals left in properties to find information! We had a lovely week, despite a very mixed bag of weather!

The property

Resting in the charming village of Crantock, a stone’s throw from the stunning Cornish coast, is this beautiful two-bedroom barn conversion, Apple Barn.

Crantock beach (National Trust) is just a short walk from the Barn, making it an excellent spot for surfers and beach lovers.

Offering off-road parking for one car and an enclosed garden, Apple Barn is a wonderful choice for hosting your next break with family or friends to Cornwall.

The Barn has a light, bright and contemporary interior throughout, offering a homely cottage feel, with an open-plan living area to enjoy after a fun summer’s day on the beach.

Rustle up tasty meals and snacks in the lovely kitchen, equipped with everything you need for a self-catered stay as well as a washer/dryer for getting any beach gear washed.

For cooler winter months, once you’ve finished your evening meal around the dining table, curl up on the soft seating before the woodburning stove, a traditional feature settled within the fireplace.

Relish relaxing in your own private space to the rear of the Barn where a sunny enclosed garden awaits, complete with a lawned area, a patio with furniture and a barbecue for those balmy summer evenings at the grill.

Discover a ground-floor shower room before heading up to the first floor to find the two lovely bedrooms, comprising a king-size and a twin room, with the latter able to be a super-king-size on request thanks to zip/link features.

Due to its central location, Apple Barn will appeal to those who like to be within walking distance from Crantock’s beach & village amenities, including the local shop, pub and businesses like the surf hire shop where you can pick up a board and test the waves!

The avid surfers will love being just a stone’s throw from Newquay’s epic Fistral Beach where waves have been recorded as reaching 30 feet high, and plenty of surf schools on the shore ready to teach you the skills you need if you’re a beginner.

Embark on an adventure along the coast with the South West Coast Path being the perfect way to explore; head along the West Pentire Peninsula, past The Chick Island where you might spot some seals, continuing southward to the stunning Perranporth Beach and St Agnes Heritage Coast.

Other nearby attractions include Newquay Zoo, Blue Reef Aquarium, Trenance Gardens and Newquay Golf Club.

Enjoy a wonderful stay in Crantock with your loved ones at Apple Barn.

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.
