Crantock Cottages - Self Catering (300+)

 

Recent Reviews

The property is ideally situated overlooking Fistral beach. The apartment itself is fantastic!

5 of 5
The apartment could not have been better. Not only was it ideally situated for us, but it was also impeccably clean on arrival. It was really spacious and had absolutely everything we wanted (especially a washing machine!). The owners were extremely helpful and generous (the welcome pack was much appreciated!), and the instructions given for when we arrived meant that getting the keys etc was hassle free. Overall I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone fancying a trip to Newquay. We would not hesitate to book with them again and probably will next year. The apartment really contributed to us having one of the best holidays we've had with our kids. They loved it as well.

My wife and I spent our Easter vacation at Gillian's place. We had a very enjoyable time staying at her place. Checking-in was very easy; she communicated all the details very well. All the rules and instructions were clearly typed in a file in the apartment, which was exactly as in the pictures and descriptions. Thank you Gillian.
