  • "The shower was AMAZING!"

    The house was lovely, exactly what we needed. The area is a favourite of ours and it was our first time staying here. We would definitely come back. We did leave a couple of things which the owner has agreed to forward to us. We had an incident with the oven which was resolved same day and due to user error. Very happy with the service, especially since it was a Sunday.

  • "1 The Hinges was clean and well equipped."

    We found the bedroom was very hot and a fan or similar would have been good, also bit more info on how to use appliances (yes us oldies can't keep up). Basin hot tap was loose thought best tell you but shower ect very good. Yes would recommend.

  • "Fantastic location and a cute little cottage."

    We felt the place needs a little TLC and some updating such as getting mixer taps in the bathroom. The owners were super responsive replacing a toaster within minutes of us whatsapping it.

  • "The only thing we would suggest is a bigger sofa, it was a bit small, the size of the room could take a larger one."

    Apart from that, the property and contents, area, and price, it was great, we hope to stay here again in the winter months as we love it here in the winter.

    The hosts were fab and very quick to sort out the WiFi when it wasn’t working, couldn’t be more helpful. Would definitely recommend and look to return.

  • "Having stayed at No."

    3 The Hinges in previous years with family, we opted for No.1 this year with it being just the two of us. As a whole it was a lovely stay and exactly what we needed. Having read other reviews, it does appear the internet connection seems to be an issue across the board which we had issues with from day one. Other than that, we can’t really fault the place or the location. Would come back.

  • "What a wonderful stay we had."

    The place was absolutely spotless. Very comfortable bed and had great facilities. Very peaceful and quiet.A beautiful location which was a few hundred yards to some lovely pubs and a twelve minute walk to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay. We will be booking again next summer.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the No 1 The Hinges, bed was very comfortable, loved the window just above to let lovely cool air in the evening, bathroom had a lovely walk in shower."

    Overall the cottage was nice and cozy. We would happily come back and stay here again. As it’s a nice cosy cottage for two people. We saw people commenting about banning your head against the walls upstairs, I would say it’s not even that bad. My partner is over 6 feet and if you get use to slightly minding your head you will not have any issues. Also parking wasn’t bad, we had a 4x4 with no issues.

  • "Well appointed property."

    Ground floor (living room, kitchen and bathroom) is very good. Bedroom upstairs has very low ceiling - we both hit our heads numerous times. Parking is insufficient There is really no outside space and you would expect that in this price bracket.

    We are sorry that you had some issues with your stay. We want all our guests to enjoy their holidays as much as possible and we take feedback seriously. However, the listing does state that the bedroom ceiling is slightly lower than in some properties and care should be taken. Also, as advertised there is sufficient room for parking of a single car.

  • "Had a great time in Cornwall at the Hinges."

    Property is in a great location for exploring, the bed and the shower were also particularly excellent! The parking was adequate, it would have been a bit tight if we had a bigger car since access is shared with next door. Only downside is that the bedroom is adjacent to next door’s living space, we were kept up a few nights due to noise. Overall a great stay and would recommend.

  • "I was really impressed with the information emails from Sykes."

    They were reassuring and very useful, everything ran smoothly as a result. The cottage was as described and we were very happy with it. My only issue was the booking fee. I was not told about it- at all. The first I heard was when I received an email for the final payment. I feel that this is deceitful. I phoned to raise my concerns and it was dismissed. I tried again and was put through to another line but no one answered in 30 minutes. I gave up. For this reason only, I would not recommend Sykes.

  • "I was delighted with my stay at 1 The Hinges."

    It is right in the centre of the village so I was able to walk to the beaches and Coast Path without taking the car. The standard of decor and cleanliness was good. It was lovely to wake to the sound of the bird dawn chorus and the gentle chiming of the church clock. The only minus point was the sloping ceiling in the bedroom. I hit my head a few times and I am only 5ft 4in. So, not advised if you are tall. To be fair, they did warn us about that.

  • "Negative points first, banged our heads a few times on the sloped bedroom ceiling until we learned to walk with a stoop, Internet connection intermittent so made booking trips etc a bit difficult, sofa and chair not big enough or very comfortable to relax in the evenings."

    However those minor points considered I would recommend the cottage . It’s in a great location for walking to the beach, shop and pubs. The cottage was clean. Kitchen well equipped and thoughtful items provided. Bed was lovely and comfortable. Good shower, Off road parking . Although a little tight if the neighbouring cottage is occupied. Overall a good place to stay.

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.
