English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Set in National Trust land, this 15th-century manor house is ideal for walkers, pony trekking, surfing or exploring caves.

This 15th-century manor house, with its own pretty garden, has tremendous character, a friendly atmosphere and is extremely well furnished. The spacious beamed sitting room is set on the first floor to take full advantage of the wonderful coastal views. Attached to Manor Cottage (GAX) but completely self-contained, it enjoys a picturesque setting on the green, in the peaceful Cornish hamlet of West Pentire – only 300 yards down a cliff path from acres of clean golden sand (see Manor Cottage GAX). Children and adults alike can sample the delights of rock pool fishing, exploring caves or surfing. By hiring a pony it is possible to ride cross-country to the beaches of Porth Joke and Holywell, without the need to cross any roads. Set in the heart of National Trust land, the holiday property is surrounded by magnificent walking country, and is an ideal base from which to explore Cornwall’s splendid countryside and unique history as well as its magnificent coastline. The immediate area is renowned for its superb sandy surfing beaches, punctuated by craggy headlands. Perranporth (named after the patron saint of tin miners) is 10 miles to the south, famous for its drifting sands which have twice buried the church. Lifeguards patrol the wide sandy beach in summer, and surf boards and wet suits can be hired by the day. Further along is St Agnes with its superb coastal views, while to the south lies Truro, the unofficial capital of Cornwall, offering good shops and restaurants, a splendid cathedral and The Royal Cornwall Museum with extensive displays of the county. The historic and family friendly Bowgie Inn is adjacent and offers a wide selection of food as well as local beers and ciders, and sports fans can enjoy Sky coverage. A general store (open in season) can be found nearby, and Crantock village and its shops are only 1 mile away. The lively resort of Newquay, with its cliffs honeycombed by numerous caves, is 5 miles across the estuary to the north. Public swimming pool with slides at Hendra Caravan Club about 10 minutes’ drive. Shops 1 mile.

Attractive beamed dining room. Well-fitted kitchen with oak beams. Utility. Large twin bedroom with en-suite wet room and toilet (Jack and Jill, access also from utility). Bunk bedroom. First floor: Comfortable living room with wonderful coastal views . Large twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Double bedroom with en-suite shower room, toilet and balcony with sea view. Three further bedrooms, all with wash basins; two double and one single. Bathroom with toilet. Separate toilet. Close-carpeted throughout.

    Great house for a group holiday. Arrived before time, but was welcomed by Tracey and Paul. Mixture of rooms and bathrooms ideal for our family (6 adults, 4 children). Lounge, kitchen and dining room good size, with excellent views from lounge. An excellent week, despite the weather.

    An amazing place to stay, very comfortable for our family holiday of 10. We would highly recommend and return to the Manor House.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are delighted with your 10 out of 10 review and your comments that it is "An amazing place to stay". We are equally delighted that you would "highly recommend" The Manor House and we look forward to your “return" to the property.

    Excellent location. Clean, comfortable. Meeting with the caretaker on arrival was easy - she was flexible when we were delayed by traffic. We all had an excellent week. We found the requirement to buy electricity a bit of an imposition, although we knew in advance. Those cooking in our group found kitchen equipment was not quite enough when catering for 13. Too many instructions/requirements fom the ownerposted on the walls! Such instructions could have been in the welcome folder.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your rating of 8 out of 10 and complimentary review- “excellent location, clean and comfortable" house. I am delighted that you had an "excellent week". I make no apologies for placing some obtrusive signs in the kitchen/laundry room and porch for guests to read. There is a comprehensive and helpful welcome folder but unfortunately some guests have needed a gentle reminder (instructions in the welcome folder have not always been followed) for health and safety reasons and so that other guests can enjoy the house at its best. We try to make arrivals and departures as easy as possible and I am glad that you found our caretaker helpful. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

    We stayed at The Manor House in May 2017 with a group of family and friends and our three dogs. We have stayed in Crantock dozens of times but chose The Manor house this time to accommodate a large group to celebrate a wedding at St. Carantoc (the gorgeous, ancient and friendly Church nearby). Frankly, I almost don't want to review it because I want to keep it a secret. We booked for the same time next year on the day we left! The house is delightful and quirky. The beds are comfortable (immaculate linen), the kitchen well appointed, the bathrooms well fitted. I have no idea why previous reviewers moan about electricity costs - eleven of us, showering daily, running the washing machine and the dishwasher - etc. was something like £50 for the week - great value we thought. Downstairs has beams which left their mark on all the taller people in our party but that was a small price to pay for such a wealth of loveliness. The views of the sea from the (fully enclosed and beautiful garden) and from the sitting room and balconied bedroom are to die for. The dog friendly beaches on either side of the house are stunning, CBay's bistro across the road serves great food. Kids surfed, dogs chased waves, grannies admired the views and ate cream teas at The Cosy Nook in Crantock. From 85 to 24 all declared it 'paradise' and ...it is.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review of 10 out of 10 and your complimentary review despite the fact that you wanted "to keep it a secret". I am delighted that you were extremely happy with the comfortable beds with "immaculate linen" and the "well-appointed kitchen". I can confirm that your electricity cost of £50 for the week between 13 people is the average cost and that we feel it is fairer for guests to pay for what they use than be charged a higher rate without using meter cards. We are very proud of the amazing location the house is situated in and you are not alone in saying that the views from the garden and the lounge are "to die for". We are delighted to welcome you back again this year where I am sure you will declare it "paradise" once more and in doing so have joined an ever growing group of returning guests.
