Bright and airy retreat in a wonderful location

Brilliantly situated close to Lelant Station, this peaceful little property in Rosamund Pilcher country provides a perfect way to avoid parking in St Ives, yet is close enough to enjoy and engage with the vibrant and art-filled town.

The train to St Ives, on the picturesque St Ives Bay line, takes around 10 minutes. Alternatively, it is only a 2+ mile (4 km) walk via Carbis Bay, or longer if you take the scenic coastal path.

Small, but perfectly formed and cleverly designed, this contemporary light and cosy retreat for 2-4 people is in a wonderful location which is stylishly airy and light.

Close to dog-friendly Porthkidney Beach, perfect for swimming and surfing, it has one bedroom (with a sofa bed in the lounge), a wet room with shower, a fully-equipped kitchenette-diner, breakfast bar, enclosed patio area, Smart TV and parking. The lounge and bedroom both open out towards the patio which has a table and seating to enjoy a snack or drink outside in the sun-trap garden.

Lelant is described by Muddy Stilettos as an “upmarket village with well-connected beachside living in a quiet and exclusive seaside enclave”. Situated on the beautiful Hayle Estuary, where it is less than a mile from the RSPB site, the village has a deli bistro, pub, wine store, and a heritage centre/cafe for a Cornish cream tea. A perfect spot for a short break.
