The Farmhouse is a stunning, large Grade II listed four bedroom property on two floors, reputed to date back 500 years and has the perfect combination of historic charm, contemporary décor and all the modern facilities you could require.


Great Weston Farmhouse has 4 bedrooms, all the bedrooms can be arranged as twins or super king doubles, three with ensuite shower rooms and the downstairs bedroom has an adjacent bathroom with separate shower. The large living room has plenty of seating for guests and the dining table is on a mezzanine - this mezzanine is thought to be the byre where the cattle would have slept and ate.

The kitchen is hand built of oak and every nook and cranny has been used! There is a large Liebherr fridge freezer, Stoves range cooker and a Bosch built in dishwasher. The original slate floor runs throughout the kitchen and downstairs living area and adjoins the oak flooring in the living room.

The sunny breakfast room overlooks the rear garden and enjoys the morning sun from the Velux windows in the sloping roof.

The quality and finish of Great Weston is superb, it is maintained to Visit Britain 5* Gold Standard.

The beds are made up with soft down quilts and Egyptian linen bedding. The large soft fluffy bath sheets that are supplied for you, complete the luxurious feel.

The quaint village of Crantock is only a five minute walk from the beach and South West Coastal Path and so, the farmhouse provides the perfect base for a family holiday or, is ideal for couples want to stay in luxury in this beautiful part of Cornwall. Most tourist attractions are only 40 minutes away by car, but you can retreat to a haven of peace and luxury where you can enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer.

Comments from a recent guest:

For top notch accommodation with everything in a beautiful environment Cornwall Holiday Cottages have it all. 5 stars all round. This year was my fourth visit. Lots of dog friendly places to visit including Crantock Beach 5 minutes walk away. I love coming to Crantock. The cottages are top notch accommodation and I like that. Loved having the dogs this year and hope to bring them again. Have recommended you to a friend at work but at the same time want to keep you secret!!

The front garden is south facing and makes the best of the West Country sunshine. To the rear, the garden opens up off the breakfast room and is planted with shrubs, providing a peaceful, pretty place to sit and enjoy a cup of tea. There is an area here for the storage of holiday paraphernalia! There is parking for 2 cars. There are two other, smaller cottages on the site; Cobb Barn and Lavender Barn.

The West Country region

Cornwall is the all year destination for all the family. The quality of light in Cornwall is much brighter than in other parts of England, because we are surround by so much water. Come on holiday to our island! Buy a painting kit, or just bring your camera to capture the beautiful countryside and water views.

Perfect for families, walkers, water sportsmen and dog lovers!


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.

•Sailing on the Fal

"An outstanding property in an outstanding location!"

This really is a wonderful property beautifully presented which provides plenty of space for larger groups.Centrally located in the village and an easy walk to Crantock beach, it offers an ideal combination for family groups.

"Cosy, distinguished family property in a great location"

We had a great holiday with family members including our lovely Irish Setters at Great Weston. Easy walk to the dunes and beach with handy shop close by. Facilities were top notch - comfortable beds, impeccable bed linen and towels etc.; the best selection of wine glasses we have ever had to choose from - we celebrated our daughter's 30th birthday at Great Weston - starting with Champagne breakfast at the fabulous huge dining table and everyone could have a matching glass! Good size sunny gardens with large table and chairs to enjoy al fresco dining. A great house for extended family to stay. Would definitely return :)

"Excellent Property and Location"

We searched high and low for a character property, offering four bedrooms, four bathrooms and in a convenient location not far from the beach. On paper Great Weston Farmhouse fitted the bill and it did not disappoint. The property oozes character, charm but is decorated to a very high standard. The property is also very flexible and well equipped with three of the rooms en-suite and able to be presented as Twins or Kings. A washing machine, dryer and dishwasher were all very useful. The cooker was very flexible but required a bit of sussing out. Wi-Fi was good with multiples routers to service the property. The living room had a great log burner which we made use of sparingly due to the un-seasonal higher temperatures.

Great Weston offers a split level open plan living/dinging area with plenty of space. Post sightseeing and surfing fatigue meant we didn't really get a chance to enjoy the great collection of games and DVDs provided. Parking to the rear of the property was convenient and safe. Crantock was very quiet, with a local shop less than 50m from the door and two local pubs less than 100m in the opposite direction. Crantock is well located in Cornwall for Newquay and approximately an hour from many of Cornwall's best attractions. Crantock beach is just a 5 minute amble with fantastic water sports right on the door. Cornwall Holiday Cottages Ltd were very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. We will definitely use them and Great Weston Farmhouse again. All in all a wonderful stay.
