Pubs and Eating
Cornwall is an excellent place to eat and drink. It has everything from the local Cornish Pasty (available eveywhere!) through to award winning resturants, such as Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver.
The National Trust
The National Trust own many beaches, gardens and houses in Cornwall.
Crantock is a picturesque village of historical note, on the North coast of Cornwall with one of the best beaches in the area. It has an ancient church, two pubs a tea rooms, an art gallery, gift shop and a village store.
It is only five miles from Newquay, but a world apart. It is popular with families in the summer and people who wish to surf, walk and enjoy all Cornwall has to offer all year round.
Crantock is the site of an altogether much older settlement - Langurroc, which means the 'dwelling of the monks'. The village gets it name from the Celtic Saint Caranog, who is also known as Carantoc. It is suggested that Crantock was founded by St.Carantacus in the 5th century, who was the son of a Welsh chieftain, and established his church. The present church is reputed to be built upon the same site.

"Guillemot Cottage,Crantock - Fantastic Place"
Just had a wonderful week here.Took my Mother for her 90th birthday. Great for young and old alike also for touring local places, Newquay/Perranporth/Polly Joke all close by. Lovely coastal walks and wonderful scenery. The property is first class, absolutely spotlessly clean and homely. Just sank into the wonderfully comfortable beds.Great views of the sea. Nothing too much trouble.

We are very sorry out guests found Guillemot lacking, but pleased that they felt it was clean and comfortable.
Our ovens are stripped and cleaned every week. The guest did not report any problems to the Property Manager during their stay, as requested, and the oven worked correctly for the following guests. We are not too sure why the oven did not work during the guests stay.
The shower trap had become blocked, probably with sand from the beach. The trap was emptied during the following weekly clean and then did not flood. We could not find any rust on the towel rail.
We want all our guests to have a wonderful time and work very hard to provide great accommodation but unfortunately sometimes what we do falls short of guest's expectations. We are pleased this does not seem to be the norm and Guillemot with its wonderful views over the sea, 5 minutes walk to a sandy beach, modern design in one of Cornwall's best coastal locations, continues to be one of our most popular properties for 2 to 4 in the winter and in the summer.
