Good but certain things lacking.
Really well equipped and linen and towels provided, set in a great position. We felt the place lacked a bit of care. Curtains were pinned up not sewn. The doors and windows really needed cleaning. We felt the place needed a bit of TLC. The shower tray, although clean itself had a lot of hair in the waste so didn't drain too well.
I picked Ridgecote as the photos seemed to show that it was close to the beach and not too close to other chalets so we had enough privacy to sit outside and quietly read or just enjoy the view. The chalet itself is small but there was enough space for us to relax comfortably when not sitting outside and all the facilities, kitchen, bathroom etc were excellent. Gwithian beach is beautiful and there is something along the sands for everyone, we particularly enjoyed the food at the Godrevy Beach Cafe. We could've just spent the whole week on the Towans, on the beach, walking the along the coastal paths but it is a good base for exploring the Cornish coast with St.Ives, Lands End and the Eden Project near by.
Lovely property in a great location
The chalet was perfect for our use. Clean and tidy, enough space (just) for 3 adults and 2 children. 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?
Nettes, kleines Strandhaus dicht über dem Meer
Wir-Familie mit 3 Kindern- verbrachten bei schönstem Sommerwetter eine wünderschöne Woche in diesem kleinen Strandhaus. Man hat einen wundervollen Blick auf das Meer und die Bucht von St Ives.Das Haus hat alles was man braucht, ist gut und liebevoll ausgestattet. Ein Sandweg führt etwa 200 m runter zum Meer. Der Weg ist nicht zu steil. Der Strand ist riesig und das Meer sehr klar. An diesem Strandabschnitt waren nur wenige Menschen.
Das Haus liegt in einem großen Feriehausgebiet. Es gibt einen netten Pub direkt oberhalb des Strandes. Den Pup und auch einen kleinen Supermarkt, bei dem man das Nötigste kaufen kann, erreicht man in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß. Es gibt auch einen Imbiss, der Fish und Chips etc. anbietet. In Hayle gibt es einen Lidl.
Man kann von Hayle alle Ziele in Südcornwall gut erreichen. Wir sind häufig erst nach St Ives oder zum St Michaels Mount am späten Nachmittag gefahren, wenn die Tagesgäste aus dem Orten rausfuhren.
Insgesamt können wir das Häuschen und den Standort sehr weiter empfehlen.
Der Kontakt zu den Vermietern war sehr gut , freundlich und hilfreich!
Special interest holidays:
There are many surf schools running close by, so surfing holidays can be booked as can most water sports. Also there are lots of art courses running in St Ives.
