“wonderful waylands!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Just back from a fantastic week at waylands/crantock. Waylands had something for everyone. Spacious, very well equipped, and perfect setting, close to the village centre, and the stunning local beaches. Lots of good fun places to visit close by. Birds of prey centre a highlight. 3 children aged 6 to 12 were all kept entertained! Extensive garden with loads of nooks to catch some sun. Highly recommended by us. Booking process made extremely easy by the owners. Local shop stocks almost everything.

“Smart and yet characterful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a wonderful time at Waylands. The cottage excellent value for money. It was spacious, well kitted out, smart and yet full of character. It is located well for exploring the various beaches nearby (Porth Joke being a favourite) and the beautiful coastline. The only downside was a bit or a sore head from bumping it on the low beams, but it's all part of cottage living and you soon get to know where to duck! We would certainly consider returning in the future.

“Lovely cottage in a fantastic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed at the cottage for a week in March. The cottage is situated in the delightful village of Crantock. The beach at Crantock is a real gem and we enjoyed walking from here to Fistral beach and eventually into Newquay harbour. We also enjoyed walking at St Agnes Head along the coastal path.
The cottage is very well located and during our stay we visited the Eden project, St Michael's Mount, Lands End, St ives, Mousehole, Padstow and more - so it is in an ideal location to tour the area.
The cottage is spacious, clean and decorated to a high standard. The owners Pete and Tracey couldn't have been more helpful.
Make sure that you sample the good food and real ale at the Albion Inn in Crantock.

“Ideal location for Family holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Good location within easy walking distance of the excellent beach, local shop and pubs. Good communication from owners both in booking and after holiday. They purchased a cot and highchair when I asked if these were available - very obliging.

Low beamed ceiling was a challenge for the 6'2" member of our party. From garden furniture to maps/tourist information, bucket & spade to BBQ, much thought had gone into the things that would help make a relaxing holiday. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of crockery, glassware, serving dishes, cooking utensils etc. Only thing missing seemed to be oven gloves - take your own - I bought some intending to leave them as a gift to the cottage but found they had been packed by one of the family and found their way home!

Weather could have been better - but it also could have been worse! Good location for travelling to Lands End, Newquay, Padstow etc.

Gill, thank you for your review, & we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Waylands.
After you left, we too couldn't find the 2 pairs of oven gloves - normally kept in the drawer under the oven. A previous guest had moved them to a drawer under the hob.
Note to future guests: "You do not need to bring your own!" :-)

“Delightful Cornish cottage!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The cottage was lovely with a very pretty garden, set in a small, pretty Cornish village. The beach is close by - its a beautiful beach, backed by sand dunes, perfect for children and surfers. There are several nice coastal walks too. The house is well decorated and cared for. Would definitely recommend it!

“Waylands, Crantock, Cornwall, England”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012 for a stay in July 2012
1
person found this review helpful

What a delightful place to re-create childhood memories of Cornish seaside holidays with our own children (aged 6 and 3). Crantock beach has a little of everything: dunes, fine sand, caves, rockpools, a little river (with ferry boat to see live crabs and lobsters on the Newquay side) and lifeguard patrolled swimming/bobyboarding/surfing areas. When we weren't at the beach, the girls simply adored exploring all the nooks and crannies of Waylands' brilliantly-landscaped garden. The interior is also sumptuously decorated, and the kitchen very well appointed, but I'll admit, the menus at the Cornishman and Old Albion pubs (5 minutes' walk from the house) did lure us away from self-catering the whole time. Aside from the walk to the beach (no great distance, but a little scary with two small children and no footpath), our week in Waylands was perfect!
