Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Lelant - The Beach House

2 bedroom beachhouse, sleeps 4, in stunning location. Private outside garden.

The Beach House is a perfect haven for those looking to escape the hectic pace of everyday life. A place where you can wake up 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. Step out of the door and walk on the dunes or beach comb in St. Ives Bay. There is a private garden and patio where you can eat outside whilst watching the sunset over the bay. Alternatively, there is a daybed sofa in the living area with TV and DVD player. Unlimited high speed 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.

New fully equipped kitchen including cooker, hob, extractor, fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher, toaster and kettle. Well stocked with cookware and tableware. Solid oak work surfaces, ceramic sink positioned under a window with views over St Ives Bay. Open plan living area with double daybed sofa and two person Knowles settee. Free view TV and DVD player. Large selection of films and documentaries available on request.

Unlimited high speed infinity wifi connection.

Dining area with table and four chairs positioned by two 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.

High chairs and travel cot are available on request. The Beach House is suitable for children.

The Beach House 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.

I Want To Live Here!!

  • 4 out of 5
The Beach House at Lelant is extraordinary. Okay it is a certainly bijou, you might even go so far as saying it is small on the inside. It does havt though everything you need for a hoilday, good kitchen, comfy beds, an amazing view! Perhaps a more comfy sofa might have been nice. It was beuatifully clean and when the TV broke down it was replaced in hours. It also, amazingly, has superfast broadband, which was great for loads of things.
However who needs an inside when you need only take a very few steps and be on the beach, then wander round the corner to a huge expanse of sand, often empty, that seems to go on for miles.
People often say that the light around St Ives Bay is special, the light is amazing!! The water is azure and surprisingly calm. Myself, wife and our 12 year old twins enjoyed swimming in safe, supervised by lifeguard, waters, with fish jumping only jards away from us an the gentle breakers.
I shouldn't really be writing this, because I want to book up for next summer, so I want to make sure there is space. I'd also love to find the time to visit in spring and autumn too.
I'd live to say that I couldn't fault the experience, but there will always be a couple of things that some people will want. So if you do want to park your car outside your house, need street lamps to walk in the dark, require a cafe on the beach, a shop within walking distance, then this house is not for you!!!
In reality it is a 5 minute walk to your car; a 10-15mins to the pub, 25mins to a great deli and cafe. 20 mins to the train station for a day trip into St Ives. Some people may not want to do this walking business, fine go somewhere else and let those that do book the house instead.
Thank you for a delightful visit, we will be back.

Beach House Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Such a lovely, well looked after little house and everything you need for a welcome retreat from city life... well appointed kitchen, WiFi, efficient shower, comfortable, and of course the views are stunning. Lots of fantastic bracing fresh sea air outside in January - but the house was as warm as toast!

We did this trip without a car and it worked fine as the local taxis covered trips from/to the station/shops (Nicola keeps a couple of helpful trolleys at the house to transport groceries down the path from the Church). For the local train to St Ives we walked to Lelant Saltings (about 20 minutes) 10 mins on the train, and lots of places to potter round in St Ives - Barbara Hepworth's House is a must-see.

I would advise arriving in daylight if possible when coming to the Beach House for the first time - the path down from the Church has irregular steps as you get close to the beach, so need to watch where you're going, particularly with luggage.

The Beach House at St Ives

  • 5 out of 5
The Beach House at St Ives, gave us the perfect retreat for my partner and myself. We both have quite stressful jobs within the funeral industry, so this was an idyllic get away. Fairly secluded with amazing views of the beach and sea. Paul has been to some pretty amazing countries with some beautiful views, but he commented that the beach house was better than some of the places he has travellled to. We were delighted with how spacious the house is and the furnishings. Nicola had left us some lovely complimentary food which we thoroughly enjoyed. We stayed for only 3 nights, but if we were planning to stay longer there were plenty of household goods to make the stay ideal, such as the washing machine and plenty of storage space. We walked into St Ives and back along the beach, and there were plenty of eating places both during the day and the evening. The only downside that we would probably note is that as responsible dog owners ourselves we noted how many irresponsible dog owners allowed their dogs to foul the footpath down from the church to the house and then down on to the beach. Having said that, Both Paul and myself would definately return to the beach house. Nicola was very obliging and we would highly recommend this location.

Amazing Views!

  • 5 out of 5
You don't need to go to the Caribbean to find the most amazing views and so close to St. Ives! What you see is what you get! The studio is in a wonderful location a few feet from the waters edge, where the landscape changes as they day goes by. The bedrooms have huge panoramic windows where you can watch the little boats go out to sea.
The studio in itself was very well equipped; very clean and well-maintained. We were spoilt for choice; we could either sit in the little garden next to the studio, or walk a few steps down to the beach. But if you prefer,you can also go for great walks all the way to St.Ives. We loved drawing and painting by the downstairs windows where you could also see 'Godrevy Lighthouse'. This area is truly beautiful and, thankfully, peaceful for a restful holiday. Also, there is a pub a few minutes walk from the studio, so no need to use the car!
While on the beach, we saw people surf-gliding and families with children playing on the sand dunes. This place is definitely for chilling-out and having a good time! We shall return!

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 cafes, 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 Beach House 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.
