This characterful little cottage was perfect for a really relaxing half term week. As well as being super convenient for shops and cafes it is well located for varied days out. We were thrilled to unexpectedly see a colony of grey seals on the beach at the end of a wild and beautiful walk to Godrevy. Hayle was a wonderful surprise to us too with lovely local walks as well as easy access to St Ives and Penzace by train and road.
I travelled with a friend who had the lovely main bedroom while I slept cozily on the sofa bed next to the wood burning stove downstairs.
The house is well equipped with all mod cons and a gloriously luxurious shower. Bright February weather allowed us sunny breakfasts Al fresco. A Cornish cream tea awaited our arrival which was a lovely touch and zipped us instantly into holiday mode. This is a really delightful wee cottage with lots of character and I hope to return one day.

We stayed here last year and will return at some point later this year. The cottage is set back slightly off a quiet road and you can park in the station. Although it's very central it's also quiet, because of the thick walls.
It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is nicely furnished with a smart kitchen and a comfy, cosy bedroom. We didn't have anyone with us but the sofa bed looked comfortable and there would be space for a family. The neighbour was friendly.
We enjoyed a walk on the memorial walk in Hayle, where all the flowers were out. It's a quick trip by car or rail to lots of attractions - we like galleries so walked to St Ives and caught the train to Penzance.
The kitchen is good to cook in, but there are also some nice restaurants, including a brilliant Italian just round the corner called Antoninis. I reviewed it last year, it had lovely authentic food, but book a table because it's deserved popular. I think I might eat there every night when we go back!
