About Claire Burroughs

My husband Ben & I live in Crantock with our 4 daughters - this photo was taken at Fern Pitt Café at Crantock Beach enjoying a crab sandwich.

Claire Burroughs purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Claire Burroughs chose Newquay & St Austell

Crantock is easily reached from the A30, has a fantastic beach for surfing, swimming, rockpool hunting and we have a great shop so you don't need to leave the village to buy bread, pasties, cakes, sausages, bacon, eggs, chocolate. The local pubs are all family friendly and serve yummy Cornish food all locally sourced. Holywell Bay & Polly Joke Beach are a coastal walk away - stunning views.

What makes this cottage unique

Starfish Cottage is great for families and adult groups as it has 4 bedrooms so you can retreat to relax away from the group if you need some quiet time but also get together to eat, bbq, watch a film, play scrabble together!! You are so close to the coastal path for easy access to the beach without getting in the car & the shop is 5 mins walk away for breakfast bacon & eggs!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed walking the Cornish Coastal paths down to Polly Joke & Holywell Bay stopping for pub lunch on the way and exploring the amazing coast path in the other direction to Fistral Beach up to Watergate Bay - Jamie Oliver's 15 restaurant is a great lunch stop! We loved it here - fond memories.

Perfect Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is clean and well furnished, with everything you need for a perfect holiday for a large family, or as in my case, extended stay, in Cornwall. The hosts are considerate and kind, and basically just understand what you need and want for a holiday. All the unexpected small extras are there, like buckets and spades for the kids, wind breaks, a few extra boogie boards, AND, it has an outdoor hot shower, which if you've never experienced before, is amazing. After long hours of surfing on Crantock beach, this alone was worth the price of admission!

Honestly, I'm hesitant to give this place a good review, because I want to keep it all to myself! The beach is a short and lovely walk across the fields, the village even closer, and from here you can drive to many of the other attractions Cornwall has to offer.

Partly because the house is spacious, and comfortably accommodates larger groups, and partly because the hosts were so great, I would say this was one of the best rental experiences I've ever had.

Good base, comfortable and well planned house

  • 4 of 5

We were a bit of a random group of 8 from 3 families and this accommodation suited us as there was enough room to spread and be together or separate as we wanted. Was close enough to beach and shop to not need car. Surf school was excellent at crantock and we had a good holiday. Owners were good at sorting out a few minor niggles and would be happy to recommend to others.
