About the property

Lounge and Kitchen, 2 bedrooms (double & twin), 1 bathroom (shower & bath)

My privately owned cosy chalet is set in a peaceful woodland setting of over 100 acres. The chalet offers everything you could want for a wonderful self catering holiday in one of Cornwall's stunning locations. Set just minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches and breath-taking scenery. There is a host of things to do nearby from horse riding, surfing, kayacking, paddle boarding or just strolling along the coastal paths.

The compact chalet has a modern fully equipped kitchen with cooker/hob, microwave, toaster and fridge/freezer and everything you need for a self catering holiday. There are two bedrooms which have been refurbished to maximise the space (standard double with brand new comfy mattress and two 2'6'' single beds) The small bathroom has a Mira shower and bath tub (perfect for bathing children after a day on the beach). There is a small TV/DVD player in the bright lounge area which has beautiful views over the woodland. Outside there is a picnic bench which is ideal for alfresco dining or just eating a relaxing breakfast and watching the local wildlife and listening to the birds singing in the trees. Bed linen is provided. Allocated free parking is close by. There are no hidden costs - electricity and cleaning is included in the price.

FREE on-site facilities at St Ives Holiday Village include a heated indoor swimming pool with flume, sauna, water zorbing, aqua rangers, children's play area, putting area, bar, restaurant, evening entertainment, disco & cabaret, free WIFI in the clubhouse, Bingo, free Foxy Club for the children, table tennis and nature walks in the woods - 1st March to 31st October.

There is fine gourmet dining in some of the best restaurants that Cornwall has to offer or sumptuous pub grub and some of the best fish and chips shops around all of which are a short drive away. There is a local bus service which will take you to Carbis Bay (fabulous beach and restaurants at the hotel), St Ives or Penzance. Or take the beautiful train to St Ives from the station at Lelant, the scenery from this coastal railway is breath-taking!

The site is pet friendly and well behaved pets will be considered at a charge of £20 per dog, but we do ask that they are not left alone in the chalet. There are some great dog friendly beaches nearby and Cornwall is a very dog friendly place, its great to explore with your best pal. Please email if interested?

About Shelley

I am married to a Cornishman, but we have lived in Lancashire (where I am from) for nearly 30 years. Two years ago, I brought my husband home after being made redundant. We live and work locally live minutes from the chalet.

My husband is a chef working for a renowned local hotel and I work for A Wildlife Trust.

Shelley purchased this chalet in 2016

Why Shelley chose Ludgvan

We want people to enjoy everything we enjoy in the area. Whether that is the host of water activities, walking the beautiful coastal paths, sand dunes and historic sites and generally enjoy the beautiful things nature has given us. The chalet is set in 100 acres of woodland, it has lovely nature walks and gives you a chance to explore Cornwall and unwind sat on the patio afterwards watching the squirrels scamper in the trees.

What makes this chalet unique

Woodland setting but very close to some of the finest beaches in Cornwall. It is a relaxing and tranquil place to base yourself ready for exploring the area.

Lovely little holiday place in an picture perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was quick and knowledgeable in response, and happy to provide vital tip bits of information to make your holiday ideal, the accommodation has all the basics you need and several you don’t. The holiday village has great transport links, and everything else you may need.

An ideal stepping point to explore west Cornwall, or just as somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of life.

Great contact, location and property

  • 4 of 5

We had a really good time. The contact was so friendly. The property is on a beautiful wooded lot with hiking trails that are well maintained. It's a great location for trips all over the south of Cornwall.

The house itself was big enough and equipped with everything you need.

Only thing we didn't like was the mattress on the large bed. It was aweful. We felt every single spring in it. Definitely needs to be replaced. Also, cleanliness could have been better. The glasses in the kitchen had fingerprints and lipstick on them, and my daughter dropped her toothbrush on the floor in the bedroom. It rolled just slightly under the bed and when we picked it up it was covered in dust and hair. I would have liked it cleaner but for the price and location it was ok.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry that you felt the chalet was not up to standard cleanliness wise but as you booked at the very last minute I did try to turn it around as best I could and yes it was a rush job. I have learned a lesson from this.

Very clean, well equipped, great location

  • 5 of 5

Booked and Stayed here over Easter. Great communication from the owner and easy to understand directions and access instructions. Had a lovely time as it is in such a great location for the north and south coasts. It's on a holiday camp with a swimming pool and evening entertainment and although this isn't really our thing our daughter loved it which gave us less to worry about. We went out to eat at the watermill and the godolphin inns as recommended by the owner and they lived up to the reviews. All on all very happy with our choice and would happily recommend it.
