Mrs Coughlan October 2018
A spacious and comfortable property to suit all generations. We took our children and grandchildren and everyone just loved the house. The location is superb, just a few minutes to the beach and less to a pub and well stocked shop. An ideal place from which to explore Cornwall and then come back to relax with space for everybody. The owners welcomed us and we felt they genuinely wanted us to enjoy our staff there.
Mr Howell October 2018
Spacious, well equipped holiday cottage. Five en suite bedrooms are particularly good.
Miss Dix September 2018
A lovely well equipped house. Perfect location
Mrs Cooke August 2018
A wonderful property in a superb location right at the heart of Crantock Village. Highly recommended.
Mr Rutherford August 2018
The Malt House is a beautiful property with so much space for a large family or group of friends to enjoy a holiday. It has a great wow factor but instantly feels like home. Everything we needed and didn't want to leave.
Mrs Leahy July 2018
The perfect holiday home in a gorgeous village location. The house is beautiful and has everything and more for a large group. The beach is less than a 10 minute walk away. Two village pubs and a small shop within in a minute walk away. Newquay is a 15 minute drive. Lovely walk across the headland to The Bowgie Inn which has amazing views of Crantock Beach. We rebooked for next year while there! Once you’ve stayed in Crantock you won’t go anywhere else.
Mrs Grimshaw July 2018
It is such a well equipped, spacious house and you are able to relax and start enjoying your holiday the moment you step over the threshold.
Mrs Evans July 2018
Wifii and mobile access very patchy - probably as expected for a character cottage in a small village. Parking an issue for a house for 10 people with more than 2 cars attending.

Thanks so much for your comments - WiFi and mobile reception as you found can be a little intermittent in some West Country locations. Our best advise is to check the network coverage maps for your provider before your holiday and details of this can be found on our website. There is parking for 3 medium-sized cars at The Malt house (VW Golf or similar) as detailed in the description but there is also a public car park down by the beach if bringing larger vehicles.

Spacious house in fabulous location close to the glorious Crantock beach Highly recommend
Mr Smith May 2018
Not as described, in a poor state compared to the description and not value for money at all.

It's always very disappointing when a guest is unhappy with their choice of property, and as you know from our direct correspondence, we don't entirely agree with your comments. However, we were pleased to be able to find a fair resolution which was acceptable to you and to the owner. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Scott April 2018
A large but cosy cottage in a tranquil pretty village just minutes from some of the best beaches and scenery in Cornwall. Ideal for both walkers and beach lovers.
Mrs Gaskell April 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at The Malt House. It provides a comfortable base in which to enjoy a multi-generational family holiday. Lots of space and very well equipped. The location is superb, both locally and further afield. To be able to walk to a beautiful beach, public house, village store and cafe ticks all the boxes.
Ms Williams February 2018
Great place for different generations fantastic beach, great for walking, and a good bus link to Newquay it was never late and a late bus back to Crantock from Newquay if you wanted to go out would definitely use again and stay in Crantock
Mrs Olliffe December 2017
Great cottage, fab location.
Mrs Barrett October 2017
Sand dunes, colourful caves, a beach to die for and waves out of this world. Then there's the Malthouse - a haven to return to after a great day. Comfort, brilliant kitchen and the best sitting room ever. I dare you to stay awake after 9.00pm!
Mr Harzer October 2017
We've been in the Malthouse for the third time and will come back next year. The Malthouse leaves nothing to be desired. Excelent location, pubs and store just two steps away. Easy access and short way to the beach.
Mrs Dickenson September 2017
Lovely old house with lots of character. Choice of living room space meant family members could do their own thing, which is important when there is a large group of varying ages. Everyone was happy and all would return given the opportunity.
Mr Jennings June 2017
The Malt House is a wonderful holiday home which has been converted from a derelict barn (check out the book of restoration photographs!). We had a wonderful week in mid June with (five adults, three very young children and a dog) and we fell in love with the place. Everything you will need is here, from the well appointed kitchen, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, BBQ in the enclosed and private patio area, and of course the games room, complete with sloping pool table.. Parking space is limited - it's fine for two cars but three would be a squeeze. There is no other parking available.
There are two lovely pubs literally less than a minutes walk away (we preferred the Cornishman) and Crantock beach is less than ten minutes walk from the cottage. The local store is great and well stocked - try the pizzas - and the village of Crantock is such a great place to unwind. I would recommend the Malt House to anyone - you won't regret it!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review The Malt House and we were so pleased to hear you enjoyed a wonderful holiday overall. There is parking for 3 medium-sized cars in front of the property (VW Golf size or similar) as detailed in the description, but for larger cars there is also a public car park down by the beach.

Ms Vaughan Williams April 2017
A lovely cottage right in the middle of the village - 2 mins from the store. Luxurious but comfortable - and the courtyard garden is perfect in the sunshine.
Mrs Delderfield April 2017
A really beautiful and comfortable cottage in a great location. We will be recommending it to everyone we know!
Mr Hyams April 2017
Beautiful cottage in a prime location at the centre of the village. Close to two local pubs as well as a fabulous dog friendly beach.
Mrs Worsfold October 2016
It is a lovely house, very well equipped,10 minutes walk to the beach which is beautiful,wecwere a family of nine badges all enjoyed our stay at the malt house so much so we can't wait to visit again.
Mr Mathias September 2016
Lovely old cottage great location well equipped and spacious just the job for a large family gathering.
Mrs Whitfield September 2016
Fantastic location, really comfortable beds and really loved the jam, scones and cream. Thank you to the lovely owners who were most welcoming
Miss Hogan September 2016
Fantastic location in small village. The Malt House is just 30 second walk to two pubs and a general store and only 10 minute walk to the beautiful beach. Newquay is just a ten minute drive. The cottage is large enough for you all to sit together and has room for you to also have some time to yourself. The beds and sofa areas are comfy and homely and the kitchen has everything you could need. A lovely cream tea (and some doggy snacks) made by the owner were there when we arrived which was a lovely touch and the scones and jam were delicious! My one negative is that it could be cleaner.

Mrs Tracey August 2016
This is a fantastic house, location is excellent - we love it !!
Mrs Barrett July 2016
A magnificent accommodation within ten minutes walk to the most beautiful beach. Three generations all loved it ( for different reasons obviously)!!
Mrs Grimshaw July 2016
It's a wonderful house with plenty of room for everyone to relax in. So well equipped and with 2 excellent pubs and well stocked shop/post office a short walk away. A short walk too to the beach and River Gannel, which is so safe for children to play in the pools when the tide has gone out. And mustn't forget the Cosy Nook Cafe - cream teas and ice cream sundaes to die for!!
Mrs Arman July 2016
Superior property ideally suited to a large party as the property has plenty of spaceand extremely well equipped. Location is superb. Pubs and beach in close proximity. Highly recommended.
Professor Harrap June 2016
An annual summer week at the Malt House is almost a timeless entry in the family calendar. The levels of comfort, attention to detail and overall ambience of the property are unique and of the highest standard. Further, the owners are most kind and accommodating. I am sure we will make a booking for next year once we have firmed up on dates. As an addendum, I frequently come across a book of interest on the Malt House shelves and buy a copy for myself on our return home. This year was no exception.
Mr Hyams March 2016
Great cottage for large groups with pets. Well maintained with good quality furnishings.
Mrs Jackson September 2015
Lovely old building in a lovely location, but cleanliness needs to be better and a downstairs toilet would be a great addition. Better lighting would be a benefit too in the main living room and in some of the bedrooms. The main bathroom was lovely and light.

Mrs Tomlinson July 2015
This is a fantastic house for a large party. There is masses of room for everyone and all their equipment. We loved the comfy sofas and fire, so nice on chilly evenings (in August). All the bedrooms having their own bathrooms was brilliant! It was great to have a big enough table (both inside the house and in the garden) for us all to sit round. All in all a great house in an idyllic location. Nobody staying at the Malt House could fail to love being there.
Professor Harrap June 2015
I have run out of superlatives in describing the Malt House and its owners. The former is quite the most perfect holiday home we have ever stayed in, including UK, Europe, North America. The latter are most kind and thoughtful: I consider it an immense privilege to be able to stay in their delightful and fascinating Malt House.
Mr Moule December 2014
A delightful cottage in a pretty Hamlet .There is easy access to Newquay.The cottage is well equipped and has practical layout for a great holiday.
Ms Oake August 2014
A fantastic property for a large group - lots of room and loads of useful equipment. A pleasure to stay in with our friends.
Mr Macleod July 2014
