Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Quirky property with amazing views of river and beach. Walk from house to beach a in minutes and on sw coastal footpath, also providing gorgeous views. Upstairs double bedroom very low ceiling suited my teenager but tall guests might have found this room challenging, 3 further bedrooms on ground floor all good size. TV position on wall could be altered for more comfortable viewing. Kitchen and living space worked well in all other ways tho only just enough settee seatingfor 5 people at once. Don't try to flag down train at Lelant station as it doesn't routinely stop here, walk further on to Lelant Saltings where you can be sure to get on. Beautiful spot would be hard to beat for beach access and views.
Thank you for your review and for letting us know in our private communications that you had a lovely holiday. You are one of our many guests who love being at the location and hopefully like many of the others will return year after year.
We do flag up that the Eaves bedroom is best for children and it is set up that way. However, many guests have requested to have it made up as a double for a couple to use. We work on the basis that guests are aware of the options in advance so that they can decide what they are happy with. The room is versatile in that way.
Being right on the beach and water means that The Beach Bungalow is a true Beach House and so might be described as quirky. That said we provide everything that our guests have needed and we often are told that the house is extremely well equipped.
We have had many groups of 10 guests stay and none have ever complained of the TV position nor that there was insufficient seating capacity for larger groups of guests as there are many chairs in the same room so nobody goes without a seat! I would respectfully note that according to the sales particulars of the sofa that it can comfortably seat 6. That said we are looking at obtaining a two seater sofa bed for the next season.
wonderful location and a great place to stay
We were all well looked after from beginning to end and felt very relaxed. The house has all you would need for a great holiday.
The views are amazing. Thank you we will return.
perfect location, lovely house, fantastic
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...
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
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
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.
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.
