  • "We managed to get in early, 4pm, to a very clean and tidy cottage."

    Thank you for the lovely welcome pack, (prosecco, ground coffee, tea bags, biscuits, milk, chocolate and dog biscuits). The cottage had loads of children’s games, books, and beach toys, plus a bbq. The beds were comfy and towels were huge and soft. We made use of the log burner one evening as it was cold. This is the second time we’ve visited this cottage as friends used it several years ago. It has the perfect location for Crantock beach. We hired wet suits from Pirates Perch Surf hire, 50m up the road, and can highly recommend them, considerably cheaper than from those at the beach car park. A great holiday in Crantock, thank you.

  • "Had a fabulous stay at Dale Cottage right in the heart of Crantock, a delightful village."

    The cottage was great, very well equipped, decor lovely, very clean, thank you for the welcome bubbles, biscuits etc a lovely surprise! Two parking places at village hall, although we did manage to park over the road a few times (locals did tell us it was usually ok to park there this time of year) a stones throw from two pubs and another eatery, amazing bus service, convenient shop! Brilliant walks. Didn’t want to come home!

  • "This is the third time we’ve stayed at Dale cottage."

    Never been disappointed. Location is perfect for travelling around Cornwall or a simple beach holiday, with Crantock beach about half a mile walk The cottage contains everything and more you require for a perfect holiday We take our two spaniels on ‘there holiday’ and they love it Plenty of walks in the area across sand dunes through woods fields and quiet country lanes The log burners are wonderful in winter making the cottage really cosy Smart Tv great new addition and it was nice to have the books and games back. And the goody bag with local items is always welcome. We are already looking to book for later in the year. Thank you Dale Cottage for another perfect Holiday

  • "What a fabulous cottage in a stunning location!"

    !!! We can't recommend Dale Cottage enough. It is packed full of everything you need for a fabulous break, including windbreaks, bodyboards and those all important buckets and spades. The kitchen is well equipped with everything that you could possibly need, the bedrooms are bright and fresh and the showers are amazing!!! The location is perfect and literally a 1 minute walk to the two pubs (and the food is well worth visiting for) as well as the Jam Kitchen. The beach is easy to get to although for the less mobile, the walk back up the hill could be a challenge. If you are looking for a perfect Cornish getaway in an ideal location to explore and relax then this place is just perfect. We will 100% be back. Thank you Tracey!!!

  • "We had a fantastic holiday over New Year in this super little cottage."

    The Christmas tree and the welcome basket were a lovely touch. The cottage is perhaps a little cosier than represented on the website but we had read previous feedback and were prepared for that - for a family of 4 it was perfect. It is beautifully decorated and fitted out and the beds were very comfortable. We might suggest that for winter guests a doormat inside the front door or perhaps some external bench for taking off muddy walking boots might be useful. We were also a little surprised that there were no dishwasher tablets. Other than those very minor points, it's a gem of a cottage, couldn't be better located, and was a lovely place to stay.

    It was close to the beach, shop and pubs. Would highly recommend and would go again. It made a holiday one to remember, especially as it was my mums 70th birthday! Thank you!

  • "The cottage it’s self is just perfect, really well stocked and super cosy."

    The location is ideal, a short stroll to the beach and with plenty of sights to visit within a short drive. The welcome pack was a very nice touch this year and much appreciated, even down to the biscuits for Monty! Will definitely be returning to this lovely cottage. Highly recommend

  • "Dale Cottage was probably one of the best holiday cottages we’ve stayed in."

    The location - walking distance to the beach, pub, great pizza restaurant and village shop - was excellent. The cottage itself felt immediately homely with tasteful and welcoming decor throughout. We remarked on the comfort of the beds and the well-equipped kitchen, not to mention the private sunny garden. Parking, also, which is difficult in the village was well catered for via a pair of permits for the village hall car park. Always good to know that there’s a space for your car on return from a day out. The whole package really was superb, thank you. Not a complaint but if you’re asking for rounded feedback, there are a couple of things to note. Firstly it was very hard to contact the housekeeper, both before the holiday period to find out the entry arrangements (I even called your offices to check we had the correct number), and also on our day of arrival when we realised we’d mistakenly left home without the key code. In spite of regularly trying to contact Tracey from mid morning, we eventually had to call your offices at five standing outside the cottage in the rain to gain access. I appreciate that mobile coverage is patchy in the area but it would be better if the contact arrangements were more reliable? Secondly, perhaps because of Covid, we couldn’t find a manual. Not a big problem but we were stumped on what to do with rubbish and recycling. We found the key to the locked rubbish bin half way through, but had no idea what to do with recyclables in spite of having colour coded bin bags in the kitchen bin. We noticed recycling boxes outside other properties but couldn’t find one for Dale Cottage. Sorry planet - we ended up just bundling the recycling bag into the general bin! Once again, this is by no means meant as a grumble, just a heads up to help with future bookings. We had a truly memorable stay in this exceptional cottage. Thanks to Tracey, even though we never spoke, the house was immaculate.

    The cottage has everything that you could possibly need for a week away and all of the rooms are comfortable, clean and full of light.

  • "Really lovely cottage and great location."

    Everything you could need in the cottage and a real home from home. Nice touch with the hamper and the owner even let us know of a couple of issues, that we didn’t even notice which shows the level of presentation in this cottage. Would definitely recommend and would like to book again.

  • "Pictures and description gave the impression cottage was bigger than it was."

    Not as clean as it could have been. Needs a bit of a make over and tidy up. Kitchen small. Not enough seats in the living room, without sitting on each other's knees. Very disappointed.

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.
