Churchtown and Churchgate are Grade 2 listed cottages situated right in the heart of the olde-worlde village of Crantock near Newquay. Please note that Churchtown Cottage will not be avalable in 2014. Bookings for 2014 now being taken for Churchgate Cottage.
The full history of the cottages are not known but it is understood that they were put to many uses over its years including a schoolhouse and poorhouse.
The most well known fact locally is that the building used to be a bake house for the monastery that stood on the site of the church. Old bread ovens can be seen in Lanherne Cottage next door, but unfortunately the ones in Churchtown and Churchgate broke up during their renovation. One former tenant of Lanherne Cottage, Mrs Mogridge used to be able to detect the smell of baking bread late at night, along with several visitors since. She remembered once being woken up by the smell and when she went downstairs to investigate, found that her oven, although switched off, was quite hot, despite the fact that she had not used it that day!
