Close to the sea and parking. Lovely sunsets and beautiful views. Chalet well equipped and in very good decorative order. Fantastic location for relaxing and enjoying the sea. Lots of walking along the coastal path and the beach. Children enjoyed the sea with the beach having a gradual slope, making it safer for them to use. Lucky to have good weather which allowed us to be outside every day. Walked to St. Ives from Lelant Saltings , which is a very pretty. Crab fishing from the harbour wall in Hayle. What more could we ask for?
