The West Country region
West Cornwall is a truly stunning part of the country to visit; with windswept beaches, craggy coves and a photo opportunity around every corner.
Young children will love the rock pools and exploring the sand dunes, looking for dragons (or maybe that's just our son!). Teenagers will love the surfing and adults will love to relax with a cream tea or glass of wine, watching the sun set from one of the many great beach bars and cafes nearby.
We have a great choice of golf courses, most of which have stunning views across the local beaches.
Also, should you be a keen photographer or interesting in bird watching then you'll be interested to know that Hayle Estuary is one of the best places for viewing wildlife in the country due to it being the most south westerly estuary in the UK.
Add all this to stunning coastal walks and It really is a perfect location for everyone, at any time of the year.
From our cottage you're less than a 10 minute drive to some of Cornwall's most stunning beaches: St Ives, Carbis Bay and Hayle Towans, to name just a few. Also, why not visit the following local attractions:
St Michaels Mount - 10 minutes drive and then either a walk over the causeway at low tide or a short boat trip at high tide. National Trust owned.
St Ives - 10 minutes drive, or a very scenic train ride from Lelant Saltings train station (departing every 1/2 hour). A picturesque Cornish town. which has its own sandy beach (in fact 5 of them!). A very pretty harbour and waterfront with plenty of art galleries, independent shops and great restaurants, serving locally sourced cuisine from the land and sea. The coastal views from the train are absolutely amazing and you'll have the added bonus of not having to drive into St Ives, which can get very busy during the summer months.
Tate St Ives - 10 minutes drive. Situated on Porthmeor Beach, Tate St Ives opened in 1993 to celebrate the modernist legacy of the town's international artists colony. The gallery offers a lively programme that embraces the best of international modern and contemporary art, presenting temporary exhibitions, special commissions and works from the Tate Collection.
Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary - 5 minutes drive, or a 15 minute walk. This is a family owned, award winning animal park and sanctuary. A lovely place to visit for all the family and on wet days there's a brilliant soft play area with cafe for the children to burn off energy whilst you chill out with a cuppa!
The National Seal Sanctuary - 25 minutes drive. Set in 40 acres on Cornwall's beautiful Helford estuary, the National Seal Sanctuary rescues, rehabilitates and releases over 40 seal pups a year, providing a refuge for the seals and sea lions that are unable to be returned to the wild.
Coastal walks - From walking routes across an inland path network of over 2,400 miles, or simply taking a stroll along your choice of beach or meander around one of Cornwall's many beautiful gardens and estates; walking is one of the most popular activities in Cornwall and no surprise given the diversity of our natural landscape and the prestige gained from twelve designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
We have provided a book of Cornish walks in all of our cottage for your use.
Golf - West Cornwall Golf Club: The course has a magnificent setting and has been moulded around the natural contours of the sand dunes that form part of the Hayle Estuary and Porth Kidney Sands. There are panoramic views from almost every hole with St. Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse forming a memorable backdrop to this gem of a links.
Penwith Pitch and Putt: is an 18 hold pitch and Putt course running alongside the Hayle river. The course is set in about 12 acres of Cornish countryside with natural streams. An ideal course for the beginner or wonderful practice for the experienced golfer.
Greenacres Short Golf: This is a nine hole course, with holes ranging in length from 75 to 205 yards. You will be supplied with a 1/2 set of golf clubs in a bag, golf ball, tees, score card and pencil (with an optional trolley hire).
Hayle Golf Range: Whether you're a seasoned golfer, someone who has just discovered a passion for the game, or a family looking for a couple of hours of fun, Hayle Golf Range has something for you.
Bird Watching - Hayle Estuary is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK.
In cold winters, as many as 18,000 birds have been seen here, because this most south westerly estuary in the UK never freezes. During spring and autumn, it is an ideal place to see migrant wading birds, gulls and terns. In summer, if you are lucky, you may catch sight of an osprey. The reserve is good for walking, with pushchair-friendly paths.
