  • "A very comfortable property; we would not hesitate to stay at Keelyn on another occasion."

    Reviewed by AlexandraJun 2022

  • "A lovely house in the most wonderful location, particuarly for dog owners as there are 4 year round dog friendly beaches in the area including the lovely Crantock Bay itself (low tide particularly) there are 2 pubs and the Jam Jar in walking distance as well as the Londis and post office."

    The cliff paths to Holywell and beyond to Perranporth are a delight, though with some caution if you have mad dogs like we do! The information folder is also helpful and I had fun searching out the carved woman's head and the sad but beautiful poem amongst the rocks on the Bay. The house itself had everything we needed, was very clean and comfortable, thank you. The only thing I would have found a helpful addition was a non slip mat for the shower. The garden is also a delight of colours in the spring and summer and really peaceful. I have no doubt we will return, though such lovely homes get booked up really quickly these days. Thank you again for such care and attention and, of course, the cream tea!

  • "Home from home feel."

    Lovely property. Would book again. On arrival when checking what was where in the kitchen the washing machine cupboard door was hanging off when opened, husband made a temporary repair and we reported to Tracey straight away via text who apologised for missing it. Also noted on going issue with a vehicle parked across from driveway, awkward to manoeuvre off drive when other vehicles also parked in street.

  • "Bad condensation in shower room ,even with fan on,coat-hooks in hall loose, back garden muddy, but a nice property well presented."

    Thank you for your feedback. I have asked the manager to look at both the condensation and coat hooks as we were the last people to stay over Christmas. Unfortunately unable to do much with the grass in the garden and the wet weather. Property Owner

  • "Keelyn is an outstanding property in an ideal location."

    Everything that we needed was provided, our 2 dogs had a wonderful time in the garden, the wood burner provided a lovely cosy atmosphere for our December stay. We can’t wait to return at some point next year!

    Thank you very much for the lovely comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Keelyn and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely warm comfortable property."

    The rear gate access is really useful with a dog rather than having to use front door down the steeper steps . Makes it easier to keep sandy paws out of the house .Communications from property manager were prompt clear and friendly thank you Tracey - we will definitely come back. Rear garden fully enclosed for dogs and you can see them while they’re outside from the sitting room. Only niggle as mentioned before someone from the locality ( but not the street we are told ) leaves their car permanently parked across the drive and this makes access a bit more tricky with a bigger car or if you had two cars to park - I think they’ve being doing it for years but we were told by another local lady who it affects that it’s illegal as it’s on speed humps. Crantock is a lovely friendly village and from Keelyn you can walk to the beach 5-10 mins with 2 great pubs and a good store all within a stroll. We are delighted we have found this lovely dog friendly property.

    Thank you very much for the lovely comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Keelyn and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, ideally placed in the village of Crantock."

    The property is a perfect place to stay for dog owners as has secure garden and close to beach and walks. Everything you need is provided and would definitely look to stay again. Only slight moan would be the car parked at opposite end of driveway for duration of stay, made accessing driveway awkward.

    So close to Crantock Beach. Garden was great for Grandaughter and dog. Tumble dryer still not working but only a minor issue. Outside shower is a great plus for cleaning after being at the beach. Would definitely go back. Very clean although some of the bed linen was past it’s best and was difficult to put back on after washing, but again..minor

  • "Keelyn was in a perfect location and had all we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday."

    Less than 10 minutes from Crantock beach, the village shop, pub, and cafe less than 5 minutes away, and a major supermarket less than a 10 minute drive away. There was close and easy access to so many different routes for beautiful walks to other beaches and along the coastal pathways, we would need another week to try them all! The level of cleanliness was excellent and made us feel very safe and confident that all the appropriate covid measures had been taken. The bed was very comfortable, the lounge with a log fire, was a very pleasant place to relax and recover from a fun day walking and playing on the beach in sometimes wet and windy weather. Finally the garden was beautiful and perfectly secure so our dog could run around and we didn’t need to worry about her escaping. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to stay and look forward to staying again in the future!

    Nice to see most of the previous negative comments have been addressed such as new toilet brushes and an efficient vacuum. The only negative point was the late check in and early check out and times.

  • "Great property, nicely presented with a clean garden (as it was left) The cottage was booked as it had a log burner - unfortunately no fire tools were available (tongs, poker etc)."

    Heating, however was more than adequate. This issue and a number of light bulbs not working were advised to the property manager but no action taken as they were ceiling mounted flush LEDS that needed changing. Also very strangely there were no loo brushes in either of the toilets. As a pet friendly place a better vacuum cleaner would aid keeping the dog hair down. Henry is not up to it. Finally there are a couple of very selfish local people who keep parking their cars right opposite the drive way making it very difficult to get on and off. We would advise reversing onto the drive as its then easier to drive off.

  • "Lovely light, airy, spacious accommodation, beautifully decorated, good quality fixtures & fittings very clean."

    Would definitely stay there again. Disappointing late 5pm check in and early 9am checkout, seems unnecessary even with Covid precautions. Crantock is a fabulous place to stay and Keelyn is ideally placed in the village. Good value for money. Front door is difficult to lock and needs some attention. The Large number of uneven Front Steps would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues.

  • "As always, Tracey the property manager was brilliant."

    A credit to the company. The cottage and village are still great, even with COVID19. The local businesses did fantastically considering the restrictions. The only minor issues we experienced were: People parking opposite the driveway on the solid white lines. I would advise anyone to reverse into the driveway if visiting. However, this is to be expected in August. The dryer part of the washer dryer didn't work. Even with just one small item they didn't dry at all. I expect this gets a lot of use though.

  • "We have already booked for next year."

    Service from Sykes 1st class especially as this was a reschedule after we had to cancel the original booking due to ill health which Sykes handled brilliantly & ultimately saved us losing lots of ££. We had a lovely holiday. the house was as described but even nicer & tho we didn't need help the property manager sent us friendly texts to show onhand if needed without being intrusive. Only 1 tiny thing.... logs starter pack not provided but as it was 25 Oct & filthy weather on arrival it would have been great. All in all 10/10 ten all round. Thank you all!

  • "We used the washer dryer due to inclement weather during our stay."

    The washing was still wet after several hours of drying. Not sure if there is a fault on it. I didn't want to put negative points in the visitors book. The house was clean, tidy and had everything we needed as usual. Tracey, who manages the property was great as always, friendly and helpful. A credit to the company. As always the cottage was lovely. The only issue we experienced was people parking opposite the drive on solid white lines, which caused us some issues with trying to reverse into the driveway. This is to be expected in high season. It was good to see the driveway had been widened to assist with parking. We have already booked for next year in Keelyn. It is a lovely cottage and village. We would love to be able to afford a holiday home in Crantock.

  • "The property was excellent and very clean BUT I booked the bungalow, as you had stated that the walk to the beach was a 'three minute walk'!"

    ! This is inaccurate. To get to the beach one has a very steep hill to walk down. One would have to be very fit and have to run down the hill to make it even to the car park to run the 'three minutes'. Also I had visualised the 'three minutes' as a flat surface. Think you should adjust your profile.

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It was our second stay at this cottage and we have already booked again for next year. Good sized bedrooms and the beds were comfortable, good living space and the sofas were comfortable. The garden was secure and perfect for our little dog. Absolutely no complaints and the cottage was perfect for us.

    The wonderful Crantock beach is within easy walking distance and is stunning! We ate at the Albion in the village, the food and atmosphere was great, they also allowed out 2 largish dogs in there too. We had the most relaxing, peaceful holiday and when we weren’t on the beach we sat in the south facing garden which is a sun trap and so quiet. Keelyn we LOVE YOU ❤️

    It was no problem at all for us to leave the car on the drive and go for a walk while they finished. The house was spotless on arrival, so thank you! Keelyn is very comfortable and cosy and has a lovely fully enclosed garden for sitting out in, especially good the week we were there, weather was fab! There is building work going on across the road and the parking by a couple of locals (not by the builders at all) could have been a pain as they did park directly opposite the drive on the narrow bit of road, but as we hardly used the car, it wasn't an issue. I did wonder if the change from Crantock Holiday Cottages to Sykes would make a difference, but it hasn't. Thanks, we had a lovely holiday...see you next year!

    However, the property manager rang me the same evening and confirmed details. I was also called by the customer services team the following day. The property has been refurbished by the owners with new windows and doors, which have improved the temperatures at night and look of the property. The only negative aspect of the stay, a very minor one being that the bin day appears to have changed from that listed in the guide at the property. It states Tuesday is bin day but they turned up on Monday. Therefore, we missed putting the bag out from the weekend. A lovely village and property with friendly locals and a local shop and supermarket a short distance away.

The property

Keelyn is a two bedroom single-storey house just a stone’s throw from Crantock Village centre and within a three minute walk of Crantock Beach.

The cottage has has a light, bright decor with a homely, modern feel.

The open plan living area with plenty of comfortable seating and a separate dining area, make it a perfect cottage for families wanting to come back from the beach, jump straight in the shower and be able to keep mess to a minimum.

However if a winter break is more what you are looking for, the log burner in the sitting area is perfect for curling up in front of adding a real ambience.

Due to its central location, Keelyn will appeal to those who like to be within a close walking distance from Crantock village’s facilities, as well as being just a short drive from all of Cornwall’s sporting, leisure and other attractions.

Crantock beach is an excellent spot for surfers and beach lovers.

The fully enclosed garden with a separate side entrance, provides a safe place to let your dogs run around without having to worry about them escaping.

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.
