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.

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."
