  • "Lovely stay, very peaceful, nice to get away from the hustle and bustle."

    Cottage had everything we needed, apart from a shortage of teaspoons! The track is rough, but you get used to it. Crantock beach is beautiful, with plenty of other beaches nearby.

    We enjoyed our stay at honeycrock very peacefully owners of the property are very nice people and make you feel welcome little boy enjoyed the farm animals and outdoor space with the swings and perfect location as not too far from the beaches the track too the property it’s pretty tight and bumpy which we was worried about but it wasn’t to bad once we got used to it and the chances of meeting an oncoming vehicle is very low as there are not many properties there

  • "We loved our stay at Honeycrock cottage."

    The owners are super friendly (and Molly the dog) and a lovely cream tea awaited us on arrival. We were aware of the rough trek road before we booked and it did not bother us, I cannot imagine it being a problem for most cars. We didn't find any DVDs or games at the cottage( Maybe due to covid) but we had taken some with us so not a problem. I had no issue with my phone signal and was able to use 4g on my phone (I am with SKY). There is everything you will need at the cottage and its a lovely peaceful location with walks to do. You are not far from anywhere in a car. The hot water is plentiful and central heating makes the cottage very cosy. We would be very happy to stop here again :)

  • "The "farm track" needs work."

    ..i expected rough terrain but that was an equivalent to a free rally experience. Parts actually scrapped the underneath of our cars narrowly escaping damage. This is the only thing stopping us from booking again

    Thank you for your comments. We regularly fill the potholes and do the best we can to make the track usable for our guests. As it is shared with the local farmer we cannot guarantee it will be pothole free, so we ask guests to take care and drive slowly when on the track. We do hope you return in the future. Thank you Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our holiday in Cornwall and were blessed with good weather and were satisfied with Honeycrock cottage!"

    Unfortunately we do not feel we can give a high score due to our concerns with the access to this property. Although it said the cottage was accessed by a farm track we had not anticipated how badly potholed and uneven the road was especially as the track was so long in it's distance to the farm and cottages. We did not feel it would be safe to be out after dark as we regularly heard scrapping on the bottom of our vehicle and from the brambles on the sides as we tried to avoid the potholes. We therefore do not feel we could recommend this cottage to a friend or would return ourselves.

  • "Beautiful cottage, very clean and tidy, tea, coffee, sugar & milk provided us with much needed refreshments after a 6 hour journey."

    Scones, jam & clotted cream also a lovely welcome. Beds quite comfy, no internet or phone signal but the only one of our party that that bothered was our teenage daughter, we enjoyed the no technology break away. The mile long track to get to the cottage was a bit of a mission every day but it was worth it for the beautiful peaceful setting. Beaches just a short drive away, we visit Newquay regularly and usually go for something nearer to the town but much prefered this farm setting Owners very friendly and helpful, we would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking for a nice peaceful break Thank you for a lovely break

    The best part was i couldn't access the internet so it was a real retreat! Only a 10 minute drive to beautiful Crantock beach and a short drive to supermarket and newquay. Lovely warm welcome with a cream tea. Can't wait to go back.

  • "This was a lovely comfy cottage in a quiet location with only the noise of owls hooting at night."

    It had everything we needed apart from a corkscrew(!) and only 7 clothes pegs but we could live with that. The owner Carol was so helpful even though she was on holiday herself. The long and bumpy track to the farm is tricky but we loved watching for the bird of prey (buzzard?) on the telegraph poles as we passed each day.

  • "This cottage is a little hideaway from any noise or people, it's a great location for getting about and especially for crantock beack/hollywell bay."

    Just one note the road to the cottage is a little bumpy so I wouldn't recommend a sports car to use. The hosts are very amenable and friendly we enjoyed our time there...

  • "Such a relaxing holiday."

    Our cottage is situated in a beautiful and tranquil area, yet close enough to all the usual activities that our children hope for...beach, sea, surf and some amazing pubs and restaurants nearby. We most definitely recommend Honeycrock and booking through Sykes Cottages ensured the whole process was free of any stress too!

    We had such a lovely and memorable holiday, which was mainly due to the quality and location of Honeycrock Cottage. We would recommend to anyone and would love to return for future holidays.

  • "It is a lovely cottage in a great countryside location with friendly conscientious owners."

    Beds were comfortable and facilities provided were very good. Excellent for young children to enjoy a small farm environment with animals etc. Also excellent for walkers like us as various beaches can be accessed with a 2-3 mile walk over lovely countryside and well maintained walking paths. We only used the car 3 times in the week. The nearest shops etc are a mile or more away so food planning etc is needed, and a trip to the pub is best combined with a nice walk. We were lucky with weather and went out each day but if it had been bad we would have been happy to enjoy the cottage more. Very glad we did not book the modern chalet on a caravan site that we were considering.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms, a double and a triple family bedroom, and a bathroom where you can enjoy a relaxing soak after a day exploring Cornwall.

The sunny private patio is a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the quiet of the Cornish countryside.

Colgrease Farm Cottages

Colgrease Farm Cottages are in a converted stone barn adjacent to the original 18th-century farmhouse, in a wildlife haven, not far from the lovely village of Crantock, Cornwall. These delightful holiday homes are reached by a 3/4-mile-long unmade farm track, set away from the hustle and bustle of the villages of Cubert and Crantock. Part of a 10-acre smallholding with sheep, chickens and sometimes pigs, special consideration for wildlife is taken, and guests can enjoy the pretty surroundings and watch the animals grazing in the fields. You may even see buzzards and kestrels flying overhead and hear owls hooting as the night draws in, as well as seeing bats start their nightly forage. There have been recorded sightings of 15 different butterfly species and over 60 species of birds over the last 10 years, with other wildlife in evidence (although harder to spot). There is also a badger sett on the farm and foxes are around, as are stoat and deer which can both be spotted occasionally; if you look very carefully all our common reptiles are here too. Of course, in the natural environment specific wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed, but that does not take away from the scenic base for your next self-catering stay. To help preserve this wonderful habitat the whole farm is completely non-smoking. The Farm is 1.5 miles inland from the Cornish coastal path with access to the beautiful local beaches and seal colony that basks on the rocks off the headland between Polly Joke and Holywell. As the cottage is located in mid-Cornwall all the usual amenities and attractions are not too far away either. All this and more, with a holiday at Colgrease Farm Cottages.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
