About the property

4 bedroom beach house, sleeps 8, in stunning location. Hot tub Free Parking

The Beach Bungalow is a perfect haven for those looking to escape the hectic pace of everyday life. A place where you can wake up in a king size bed and look straight onto St. Ives Bay and Godrevy lighthouse. Watch the ebb and flow of the tide, whilst having your morning tea or coffee. Alternatively enjoy a relaxing hot soak on the terrace overlooking the bay in the private hot tub whether morning, noon or night! If you wish to be active you can step out of the door and walk on the dunes or beach comb in St. Ives Bay. There is a private garden and patio with the private hot tub where you can eat outside whilst watching the sunset over the bay. There is a pool at the location that maybe available should the neighbouring property not be occupied. Alternatively, there is a TV , Blu ray DVD player and wifi. Lelant, the birthplace of Rosamunde Pilcher, is conveniently located near to St. Ives, but remains a peaceful and relaxed village even in the height of summer. The Eden Project is within easy distance to visit for the day, as are many of Cornwall's tourist destinations. A great location, especially of interest to golfers, walkers, painters, ornithologists, kayakers, windsurfers and anglers.

Modern fully equipped kitchen including cooker, hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher, toaster and kettle. Well stocked with cookware and tableware. Solid beech wood work surfaces, ceramic sink. Open plan living area with ample sofa seating. Free view TV and DVD player. Large selection of films and documentaries available. Bookshelves with large selection of books and games. Dining area with table and seating for six, with chairs positioned by patio windows with sea views

Fresh towels, bathrobes and bedlinen are provided.

The property is thoroughly cleaned after each guest vacates. For stays of more than one week, all sheets and towels will be changed and the accommodation will be vacuumed.

Guests are able to park for free on the nearby quay 150m along the beach from the house.

The house has a modern wood burning stove as well as modern electric radiators.s. High chairs and travel cot are available on request. The Beach Bungalow is suitable for children.

The Beach Bungalow is a truly stunning location for painters to experience the special 'light' of St.Ives Bay. The location inspired John Miller to paint world famous seascape and images of the views.

May to Aug is a good time for Anglers to fish for bass from the Beach. Kayakers and gig rowers are seen daily on the estuary. Hayle Towans on the opposite side of the estuary is a popular surfing, kite-surfing and wind surfing beach. The Hayle estuary is the most southerly estuary in the UK and the last stopping spot on mainland UK for migrating birds. It is therefore a RSPB reserve. Walkers can step out the door and walk the Hayle to St Ives section of the South West Coastal Route.

The famous local author Rosamunde Pilcher has recently described the walk to the house as her favourite walk:

"My favourite walk is at Lelant, down the road past the church onto the golf course. You see the bay and the colours, and it's never the same - it's just perfect."

perfect location, lovely house, fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Everything was exactly as advertised. The house is well equipped, lovely and warm and a wood burner to crank it up! Right on the beach so when the tide was out walked we over the sands to St.Ives. The weather was wet and windy so never used the outside but it looked great with everything you would want. Sat watching the storms - wonderful.

Perfect location, nice area...

  • 5 of 5

Great! Very nice bungalow in a very nice area. We went there with 4 adults and 4 children. Good to start sightseeing tours around Cornwall. Our children (6,7,10,10) loved the place, spending all day at the beach catching crabs. Amazing view - you only have to sit on the terrace. The house was well equipped and tidy, perfect for 8 people. Good to know: there are a lot of dogs at the beach

A lovely stay in a comfortable, cosy house

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 including two teenagers and our West Highland Terrier stayed here over the New Year period with another family of 4. The house was perfectly spacious enough with enough room to allow for changing sleeping arrangements for the children and was perfectly well equipped to cater for all of us and store enough food to last. There was a good washing machine and plenty of space to dry clothes and the conservatory was warm and a useful place to dry boots, coats etc. When we arrived, the house was spotlessly clean and all of us found the beds to be very comfortable. In order to reach the house you need to park a short walk away which is down a sandy path across a golf course. Although this can be a little tricky at the end if you have luggage or in the dark, it really wasn't a problem with everyone helping out. The views of the estuary and the beach from the house are lovely, especially on a cold, cloudy morning, drinking a cup of tea and the beach is literally a few steps down from the house which was perfect for a long morning walk. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend and would absolutely love to return.

Perfect location, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for somewhere to stay for two families: 2 mums, 2 dads, 1 grandmother, 3 teenagers, 1 toddler and 1 spaniel near the beach and the Beach Bungalow was perfect. It is so difficult to tell from photos on a website what a place is like but we found the property even better than the photos show. It really feels like your own home - Nicola has done a fantastic job decorating the house and it is in the most beautiful location.

We came down for our wedding which was mid-week and Nicola was extremely helpful beforehand recommending places for the reception and even her hairdresser who was brilliant. We also celebrated grandmother's birthday, dad's 50th and the only complaint was that it was too short.

If your ideal holiday is to be with family and friends in a really attractive, comfortable house practically on the beach (which is beautiful and clean) and you enjoy walking and relaxing then this is the place for you. We will definitely come back! Thank you.

far west recreation

  • 5 of 5

As we arrived in the dark we were dependent on a description for the last some hundred yards by telephone-a little adventure we enjoyed but a precise description in advance would be nice.

The beach Bungalow is a very well equiped nice holiday-home even in autumn.

As we were lucky with the weather we spend some beautyfull hours at the beach which is right beneath the terrace and invites to walks along the coast.

A lovely time is the sunrise in the ocean-view conservatory with a cup of tea or coffee.

We enjoyed a beautyfull week in a lovely house at a wonderfull spot.

Despite the long way we had we are thinking about a second time there.

We were five persons including two teenagers.

Visiting Trebah gardens, lands end and the impressive waves at the rocks at pendeen lighthouse, of course St.Yves and other places around time flew rapidly.

Nicola the owner is allways busy but very kind and helpfull which suited our needs to a hundred percent.

The famous local author Rosamunde Pilcher has recently described the walk to the house as her favourite walk:

"My favourite walk is at Lelant, down the road past the church onto the golf course. You see the bay and the colours, and it's never the same - it's just perfect."

St Ives Bay has superb beaches with glittering clear sea and clear air. The Beach House is situated on one of St Ives Bay's beaches. Great for surfing, windsurfing, sea kayaking and fishing.

The area has great artistic traditions dating back to the 1800s when accomplished painters revelled in the clear accurate light and luminous colours. An artistic legacy exhibited in the Tate Gallery. The Beach House, the former studio of John Miller, who captured the beauty of the location in his Beach paintings.

Add to all this a range of excellent restaurants and cafés, traditional pubs and St. Ives becomes even more of a holiday delight.

The Eden Project and other world famous Cornish gardens such as Heligan and Glendurgan are all in driving distance.

The proeprty is situated next to the West Cornwall Golf Course and on the South West Coastal Walking Route and the Hayle Estaury Bird Reserve.

Lelant was the birth place and childhood home of Rosamunde Pilcher author of the Shell Seeke

Golf: Meters from the scenic 18 hole West Cornwall Golf Course.
