We really enjoyed staying in the historic Forge Cottage, although retaining some period features, it was cozy with a beach house feel to it. The close proximity to the beach and public path was also perfect for us with our dogs.

September 2018

All very good and would recommend Forge Cottage and Classic Cottages.

July 2018

Cute cottage in excellent location. Sadly quality of furnishings do not reflect the cost.

Forge Cottage is a lovely little building. It was perfect for me, two children and small dog. Great location in the village. Not to far from beach. Crantock lovely area for walking. If weather had been better we would of explored more. Owner are helpful and welcomed us with treats for all.

November 2017

Forge Cottage suited us perfectly. We settled in immediately and felt at home for the rest of our stay, which was magical. A cosy cottage home by the sea with amazing walks and good pubs. What more could we want?

October 2017

The cottage was lovely, very well equipped , and for personal reasons the pay phone was excellent, a very memorable holiday

Forge Cottage was delightful. A lovely restored stone cottage with a warm welcome from the owner. This coupled with a great location made a great holiday. Would certainly choose this cottage again.

May 2017

Great base to explore the area as close to the beach and coastal path parking area was even big enough for our large car

December 2016

An excellent property with every amenity within a very, very short walk. An ideal location for any dog owner with Crantock beaches a downhill walk of 5 mins. A very welcoming property with everything there ready for you as you arrive, milk, sugar, tea, coffee and even scones with cornish cream and jam. The owners are lovely and they keep the property impeccably clean and tidy. A really special touch was the Christmas tree, decorated with fairy lights, we were made to feel at home over the festive period. Well done and thank you. We are booking for next year in this property as there is parking for 1 vehicle.

October 2016

Great place for walking and beach holidays

July 2016

June 2016

2nd stay and loved it just as much. Ideal base for walks on the beach and beyond. A very helpful and pleasant owner.

March 2016

Have stayed at Forge many times over the last 7/8 years and always thoroughly enjoy ourselves.

March 2016

Forge cottage is a cosy, compact well equipped cottage. It is an ideally situated base just 2 minutes walk from the convenience store and local pubs. There is unfortunately no garden to sit out in however just cross the road outside the door and you are on the lane leading to the sand dunes, beach and the coastal path. The owner is pleasant and friendly.

December 2015

really clean and cosy even though you can take dogs

May 2014

The location is very good for getting to Crantock Beach, however the cottage is a little cramped for four people.

Thanks for your review - the cottage is a conversion of an early 19th Century forge, and as a Listed building it's not possible to alter the internal layout too much. Although it's not huge, it does offer a cosy and attractive hideaway for four - and as you say, it's great for the beach! Tanya, Customer Support

March 2014

The location was excellent, the beach was dog friendly, there was a local shop which was very well stocked, the local pub was excellent, the cottage had lots of character. No garden with this property...and as we had two dogs with us this really should have been made clearer

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so glad you enjoyed the location and everything the village has to offer. The working origins of the cottage mean that there isn't a garden, but there is a parking space just outside which is unusual for the area. A little table and chairs can be squeezed just to the side of the parking space (see the photograph of the cottage's exterior) but as this is so small, we've chosen not to advertise it. However, with the fantastic sandy and dog-friendly beach just a few minutes walk down the hill, we hope that most guests won't be too disappointed. Tanya, Customer Support

November 2013

Cottage in perfect position for beach, village and pubs!! Ideal for coastal walks.

October 2013

A lovely cottage in a perfect location. For those who have dogs it can't be beaten. Don't be put off by the lack of garden as the walk to the beach only takes a few minutes. When you get back take the dogs to The Albion which is a really pet friendly place to enjoy a meal and a pint, the bar staff have even got a pot of treats just for the dogs!

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks for your feedback - it sounds as though you had a great stay at Forge Cottage. As you say, Crantock beach is only half a mile down the hill, and is a dog-friendly beach year round - I'm sure the dogs loved a run along the sands! We're glad that you all enjoyed your time in Crantock. Tanya, Customer Support

August 2013

We chose the cottage for the location and village facilities. Cottage met brochure description. Fantastic beach literally on doorstep. Cottage off road parking meaning no expensive car park charges!

July 2013

forge cottage is a lovely place to stay, felt like home, would defo book again

May 2013

Had a lovely stay, handy track opposite cottage leading to beach. Suitable for taking dogs off lead. Both bedrooms had en-suite facilities which was a plus. Had everything you need for a weeks stay. Would recommend to my friends :)

March 2013

A very cosy cottage for the two of us (plus dog) and we really enjoyed being able to walk directly onto the coastal paths and Crantock Beach ... and what a beautiful beach it is! Definitely up to usual high standards of Classic Cottages.
