About the property

Chalet in Lelant, Nr. St Ives, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Loacation Perfectly Suited For All Hobbies And Interests

This self catering chalet has recently been painted and re-decorated to a high standard throughout. Taking inspiration from the sea we have created a relaxing, beach hut themed retreat which is both comfortable and stylish. We believe that a good nights sleep is essential and all mattresses and bedding has been recently replaced with new in June. There is also a well equipped open plan kitchen and living room with flat screen TV and DVD player. A decent electric shower and bath will wash off sand and salt water after a hard days play on the beach! If you fancy a BBQ or eating alfresco, there is a lovely patio area and picnic table outside.

About Victoria Sewell

I am an outgoing person with a passion for the sea and the outdoors. Whenever I have a free moment, I enjoy going on holiday to Cornwall, Pembrokeshire and Anglesey. I always pack a wetsuit and a BBQ, snorkel, mask and walking boots and make the most of exploring our gorgeous British coastlines. Being based in the Northwest, I cannot visit my 'lovely' lodge as much as I would like and feel that it is only right that I should share it! I hope you enjoy it and the area as much as I do.

Victoria Sewell purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Victoria Sewell chose Ludgvan

Whilst visiting family on the park at Christmas, we found out that the chalet we were staying is was for sale and were lucky enough to buy it in March 2013. St Ives and the surrounding area, is a great place to visit and the lodge is in a perfect location for us. Close to gorgeous white sand beaches and turquoise seas, it is a fantastic base from which to surf, fish, snorkel, swim and walk whilst also being in easy reach explore the cultural and culinary delights the local area have to offer.

What makes this chalet unique

'Ansome' Lodge, meaning lovely lodge in Cornish dialect is perfectly suited for all types of holidays and interests. Surf trips, family holidays, gourmet adventures, girly/boys breaks away, romantic retreats for couples, bird watching extravaganzas, you name it, there will be time either during the main holiday season or the quieter Winter months when it will suit.

Situated on a popular holiday park in Lelant between Hayle and St Ives, Ansome Lodge sits in 100 acres of woodland and enjoys a quiet and peaceful site. From March to the end of October, all guests can make use of the parks on-site facilities which include; swimming pool, water slide, sauna, shop, bar and evening entertainment. Guests are welcome outside of this holiday season, though the parks facilities will not be open

Beautiful chalet in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Ansome lodge in early September and couldn't of asked for a better home from home to enjoy my holiday. Ansome lodge is very well equipped and cosy with one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in. I didn't use the site facilities so I can't comment on them but the holiday village is ideally located for Penzance, St Ives, Carbis Bay and St Michaels Mount. My only advice use the park and ride to visit St Ives which isn't too far from the holiday village as parking in St Ives is pretty much non existent! Thank you again Victoria for a perfect stay.

Just returning home from our lovely week at this beautiful chalet. Thank you to Victoria, the owner, for making our holiday here special from the start. A lovely bottle of sparkling wine greeted us on arrival and the chalet had everything you need. Very good base to explore the area. Would recommend!

A Gem

  • 5 of 5

A really comfortable and clean home from home, we stayed for a week and the chalet had everything we could wish for, comfortable beds and sofas, a well equipped kitchen with fridge and full freezer, a tv with dvd player and dvd's. A launderette and swimming pool available on site and a really peaceful setting. We have stayed in similar properties near Hayle several times and would have no hesitation in returning again.

Schönes Feriendomizil im Herzen von Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist in einer Ferienanlage, ca 6 km von St. Ives entfernt. Es ist komplett eingerichtet, sauber und sehr gemütlich. Viele Ausflüge sind von hier aus möglich, St. Michaels Mount ist nur wenige Kilometer entfernt.
