  • "We stayed in this wonderful cottage with 5 person, a toddler and a dog."

    We all felt at home straight away. Cantrock is lovely little village with a beautiful beach and Newquay is only a stone throw away. We cooked a lot in the well equipped kitchen and stayed in quite a lot, because the weather wasn’t that brilliant. But it was Ok, because the cottage is really cosy. We would definitely come back again.

  • "Positves: it is a beautiful, quirky house with lots of original features."

    There is plenty of room so you don't feel cramped. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The hot tub was lovely. The location is ideal for sightseeing and both pubs and the Jam Jar Kitchen/cafe in the village serve lovely food and have great staff. The beach is beautiful and there are lots of walks you can do. Negatives: There was an issue with a sash window which crash down and trapped my daughter's fingers when she opened it. The owner has been informed and will hopefully have all the windows checked to make sure they are safe. The garden furniture could do with upgrading as it is very uncomfortable to sit on. The garden isn't completely dog secure so owners need to keep an eye on their pets.

  • "Charming cottage, very well adapted for holiday lets."

    Comfortable and thoughtful ... lovely soft "throws" for chilly evening suppers, hot tub appreciated, lots of coffee provided, well equipped kitchen. surprisingly quiet though in centre of built up village. A local guide/map would have been useful and the rubbish bin in my bathroom had not been emptied. Ideal for 3 adults and 4 children.

  • "Gorgeous cottage, comfortable and very well equipped."

    Great location to explore the local area and enjoy the last bit of October sunshine. During our stay we did have quite a bit of rain, unfortunately the water started coming through the back door! We thought a tea towel would suffice to soak up the leak but got through 2 beach towels trying to control the leak! It also started dripping through the roof in the breakfast room, this obviously has been an issue before as there are existing marks on the ceiling. These both need addressing! The lid on the jacuzzi is broken but this has been pointed out before on previous reviews. I think a welcome book would have been nice with info about the cottage, local area and recommendations. The welcome package of scones, tea, coffee and milk was nice, thank you! Overall a gorgeous cottage, lovely location, very clean and very well equipped just a few maintenance issues that I feel when you are paying a certain price should be addressed.

    Jacuzzi lid replaced over winter. Hopefully fixed leaks and breakfast room windows and repainted kitchen and breakfast room. Farmhouse deeper cleaned and prepared for new season. Feedback always very helpful - thanks. House management team of Tracy and Jols always available to help with any problems when they occur. Property Owner

  • "Lovely well equipped house."

    Beds really comfortable! Be aware on the number of steps (down into the house and split level kitchen plus awkward staircase). We had a fit 83 year old with us but she found the steps a bit difficult.

  • "THE GATE TO THE GARDEN IS NOT LINED UP CORRECTLY SO VERY DIFFICULT TO OPEN AND CLOSE."

    THERE IS NO LARGE PARASOL TO GO ON THE MAIN GARDEN TABLE THEREFORE NO SHADE OFFERED TO DINERS. THE BBQ WAS NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE DUE TO BROKEN LEGS. THE COVER FOR THE HOT TUB IS BADLEY FITTED AND THE HINGED BAR IS NOT SECURED TO THE TUB.

    Parapsychology has now been purchased - sorry for delay when garden furniture was in short supply. Hottub and bbq repaired and replaced. Garden gate lock replaced and new hedge laid Property Owner

  • "Great Western Farmhouse is a wonderful house in the heart of Crantock, a minutes walk to the local pub and 10 minutes walk to Crantock beach which is brilliant and dog friendly."

    The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate and the layout is great and typical of a very old house whilst there were just three of us it lends itself to larger parties. The beds were super comfortable and the lounge sofas were also great for having ‘five minutes’. The hot tub added to the experience especially as we had an amazing week weather wise. The only thing I would say is that the boundaries weren’t fully enclosed and one of our dogs escaped on a few occasions so we had to use the garden chairs as a barrier to stop him. We would definitely return if this was sorted as loved the house and it’s location. Anne, Simon, Hedley and Wilson and Ivan the Chow Chows

About the location

CRANTOCK

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.
