Lovely property, well equipped with everything required for an excellent self catering holiday. Great location with easy access to Lelant station (2 min walk)and a 10 min car journey outside St Ives. The property is well maintained, equipped and homely with a lovely sunny garden. Lucy the owner is so helpful and made the booking process easy and provided plenty of information re the cottage and surrounding area. Plenty of good local pubs and restaurants if you dont want ro cook at home. We would have no hesitation of booking again, we had a wonderful.week and highly recommend Daisy Cottage to anyone looking for a lovely home from home.

Home from home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Daisy cottage is a lovely property, very clean with all you need for a family holiday. The location is excellent, being so close to the train station and within a short walk to a couple of good places to eat. No need to take the car into St Ives! The train runs every half hour and is cheap. The service and communication from Lucy the owner was excellent from start to finish. We had a great holiday!

Daisy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage , very clean , well presented and is exactly as described.. Plenty of sitting areas for our party of 5 , and everything you could need for a perfect holiday. The garden is lovely and perfect for sitting out in an evening and parking space for 2 cars is a bonus. There is not much in the immediate area except Scarlett's wine bar and the Watermill pub , which we visited and had amazing meals at both . we never saw any shops in the immediate area so this may be a consideration to some people . The train line is only a 2 minute walk away, on level ground, and takes you into St Ives in 10 minutes max, calling at Carbis Bay on the way. The owner, Lucy was most helpful and even texted me to let me know the cottage was ready for us earlier than expected. we would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage and would certainly return.

Perfect for a family visiting the St Ives area

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is ideal for any family wanting to be near to St Ives, Carbis Bay and Lelant. The property itself is immaculate, with excellent furnishings and facilities. It also has private parking at the back which is very useful. Close proximity to the Lelant Saltings rail station (2 min walk away) is a real bonus, as this train line is ideal for easy, cheap and frequent travel in and out of St Ives, avoiding all the traffic and parking hassle. Family train ticket only £10 return! The cottage is in a quiet area, and is a calm 'retreat' after a busy day visiting the wonderful beaches in the area. There are a few nice pubs within walking distance and the wonderful Godrevy beach is a short drive away. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. I am pleased you found your holiday accommodation and location to be first class. It is my number one priority that when guests arrive they find a spotlessly clean holiday home, as well as receiving five star communication. Guests need to have the confidence that the accommodation is what it says it is. I thank you for taking the time and trouble to post this review and I look forward to seeing you all again in the future.

Perfect holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our family of 5 with small children, although it would also suit other parties. We felt the cottage really made our holiday.

The location couldn't be better, in a nice peaceful development, within easy reach of local shops and restaurants (and the all important wine shop) and really easy getting into St Ives without any parking hassle. The train service is fantastic. The station is no more than 2 minutes walk and the service into St Ives is fast, frequent and cheap. If you want to be energetic, there are some lovely walks/runs from the cottage that take you through countryside/coast path and stunning beaches.

The cottage was immaculately presented, high quality, comfortable, very clean and full of everything you need. We will certainly be returning and we have already recommended the place to family and friends.

Clean, spacy, beautifully furnished and very convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

When we booked Daisy Cottage in January of this year, we took a look at the photos of the cottage and thought that even if it is half as nice as it appeared on the photos, we had probably made a good choice. However, to find that the reality excelled the photos by far was an even nicer surprise. The cottage is lovely and although we were only four persons, six persons would easily have enough space. The rooms are light and beautifully furnished and this made our week in Cornwall so much more comfortable. It was very much home from home, but with a very Cornish flavour.

And then the location! We had oriented ourselves beforehand with maps of the area, but coming from the continent (without a car!), we were really not sure, whether we would be able to get around and see things as we would like to. Luckily, our fears were unfounded, because not only was the local train service from St. Ives to Penzance excellent and the Lelant Saltings station only two minutes away, but the bus service was absolutely reliable and very entertaining, especially when driving down the very narrow Cornish roads in an open-top double-decker! This meant that, even though we did not have a car, we could get around and see as much as possible of this beautiful part of the country.

Also, thanks to Lucy for welcoming us so warmly to the cottage and for giving us some great tips (especially the pubs!). It was lovely meeting her personally and to be sure, we would recommend Daisy Cottage to anyone. All in all, it was a fantastic week in Cornwall and it certainly won’t be for the last time.

Daisy Cottage is situated in the prime location of the award winning development of Saltings Reach just on the outskirts of beautiful St Ives.

This delightful 3 double bedroomed granite cottage makes the perfect holiday home complete with parking, garage, and sunny private and enclosed garden.

The frequent branch line train is only 5 minutes walk away and arrives in St Ives in 8 minutes, offering some breathtaking coastal views along the way.

Historic St Ives is renowned for it's cosmopolitan mix of restaurants and cafes, art galleries, beaches and scenery and whether you are simply looking for a week on one of the many beaches or an energetic mix of surfing, golf, walking or diving there is something here for you.

This lovely coastal cottage is also close to the Hayle Estuary, a well renowned RSPB nature reserve and offers great accessibility to St Ives town centre and a multitude of surrounding golden sandy beaches.

For walkers we are on the South West Coastal path which can be followed from the cottage along the Saltings, across the golf course and via the sand dunes and cliffs to Carbis Bay and St Ives. The popular West Cornwall Golf Club with its stunning views of St Ives Bay & Godrevy Lighthouse, is only a short drive away.

Further a field Penzance, St Michael's Mount, Lands End, beautiful Sennen Cove (surfing), Padstow (cooking courses with Rick Stein), Port Isaac (filming of TV show Doc Martin), Newquay (indoor Water World), & St Austell (Eden Project) are all within easy reach either by Car or Train.

Daisy Cottage is the perfect choice holiday home if you want to stay in a quiet and peaceful location but still be ideally placed for exploring the rest of this beautiful part of Cornwall.
