Many holiday cottages to discover!

Whatever time you go to Crantock, we'd like to suggest some things to take to improve your stay. Start with something to keep the rain away. You can never really be sure of the weather. An umbrella and a raincoat are a good start!

We always make sure we take a good book. There's always plenty of downtime on a cottage holiday, and so it's a great time to catch up on a read. Although you can buy your essential food and drink items locally, it's great to have them with you so you can make a sandwich or a cup of coffee as soon as you arrive. We're often asked which is the best place to stay, and it's so hard to answer, it really depends what you are looking for. 

Crantock Accomodation

In Crantock, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Crantock school summer holidays. 

If you want to avoid half-term in the summer, draw a line through the first two weeks of June. It's recommended to make an early booking to ensure your date, especially during high season, but it's not impossible to find a last minute opportunity. 

In recent years there has been an increase in the size of cottage agencies. Generally speaking that means that someone is always checking the quality of Crantock accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

Holiday Cottages

In the unlikely event that you are not delighted with your holiday cottage in Crantock please email or call the agency you made the booking with. Nearly all country cottages have free parking near the property, but you may find the urban cottages to have more parking restrictions. 

The cottage owners may leave some hints for good places to visit nearby and on occasion we've even found that they'll suggest a specific pub or restaurant where you can get a discount. Crantock has long been popular as a place to stay and we encourage you to investigate the surrounding area as much as possible. 

Some properties will ask for a security deposit before your arrival date - although this is required in a minority of accommodation and you will be advised at time of booking. 

Families, Friends and More

There are few better ways to spend a holiday together as a family than in a holiday cottage where everyone truly is in one place, not dotted around a hotel. When you're travelling as a family with young kids there are several things we recommend you take with you. 

First of all, make sure you remember their shampoo, since not all stores in Crantock will carry tear-free shampoo. Snacks for the car can make the trip to Crantock much more pleasant - bored kids with low blood sugar are not the perfect companions. 

You'll need to think about a few of their favourite books and games to help them feel at home in the cottage and settle in for a good nights sleep.
