“Everything you need and perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I don't think I could have chosen a better spot for our first family holiday if I'd tried. The Granary is in a beautiful and quiet spot, surrounded by lovely Cornish countryside and yet still within easy drive of lots of things to see and do (about 15/20mins drive from Newquay, 15mins from Crantock Beach, and 35mins from Eden Project). Outside you will find ample parking, a lovely little bench over looking the water and a "secret" path (carpeted with daisies when we visited!) leading down to a secluded picnic spot overlooking a lake. There was very little traffic passing and quite a few horses trotted past (much to daughters delight) and a LOT of rabbits. There is also a small sunny courtyard directly outside the accommodation. Inside you will find a lovely, simple, airy barn conversion style building with everything you need and certainly perfect for our family of three. Kitchen has all the usual utensils (I did bring my Wok from home though!), the bath is huge and the wi-fi was surprisingly very good. Fan assisted oven was also excellent and I'm missing it now that I am home. Bedrooms again simple but everything you need. Daughter loved that she could hide in the wardrobe... We loved having the log fire to play with on the 2 colder nights of our stay and oh my it's been years since I played Connect 4 so that was a nice thing to find on the shelf! We met Rupert a couple of times and he was very pleasant and gave us a beach recommendation. Also there was an unexpected incident outside (not relating to the accommodation at all so no point explaining it) and Rupert came and checked to see if we were OK which I thought was very good customer service. Locally I would recommend The Pheasant Inn (its a nice 1-2 mile walk if you like walking), Oasis splash pool at Hendra holiday park, Crantock Beach and if you get stuck with a rainy day like we did check out the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay. If you are looking for a family friendly cottage but prefer a bit of peace and quiet to retreat to rather than the usual "family" spots then you will love The Granary. We've had a wonderful week and I am sure we will be booking another stay in the future.
