Once known for its tin mining , now the ruins of deserted engine houses adorn the countryside.
It is a place to be explored, and once discovered, never forgotten.
St Ives is a quaint fishing village, where it is easy to step back in time, and imagine a past era.
It is famous as a centre for artists, and houses an extension of the Tate gallery.
Hayle borders St Ives Bay, and the Hayle Estuary is a natural habitat for birdlife
Close by are the famous landmarks of Lands End and St Michaels Mount.
Many parts of Cornwall are in easy reach, such as the Lizard peninsular and the River Fal. Also day trips to the Scilly Isles.

"Beautiful location, lovely chalet"
When we arrived at the chalet the first thing we noticed was the view! From the kitchen window you can see the sea and it was so peaceful. Theres a picnic bench right outside which was great for eating our lunch. We really enjoyed our stay there as we found it very homely.

"We had a very enjoyable stay."
The accommodation was very comfortable and the views spectacular. We had planned a quiet week to read, walk the beaches and visit local places of interest. It was an opportunity to enjoy good friends, good wine and good food. It was everything we hoped for in a little holiday cottage on the Cornish coast.

"peaceful,picturesque and relaxing"
Most of all I liked the elevated position enabling sunrises and sunsets over
the sea to be enjoyed at their best.
The location afforded easy access for beach and cliff walks
Bedrooms were a bit small but lounge/din/kiitchen spacious and comfortable and all with

"Great view shame about the damp."
Fabulous location, but chalet is damp and smells dreadfully of it. The fact that a dehumidifier is supplied is worrying. not good for anyone with asthma. The smell of damp hit you as you walked in.
Not the cleanest place I've stayed in.
Needs a thorough deep clean, blinds thick with dust as were most surfaces. After much negotiation we did receive a small refund, but would have much preferred not to have had problems we encountered, including a broken washing machine ( this was replaced after a few days) and dishwasher. ( this wasn't replaced while we were there).
We left early due to dampness making us ill with coughs.
Thank you for your review. We were saddened that you found the holiday disappointing. We endeavor to provide a holiday experience that equals that of the quality of our views.
Our professional cleaners always give the chalet a thorough clean prior to each let, and following your complaint we immediately suggested that the cleaners returned, however this offer was declined.
We had had trouble previously with the washing machine door sticking, so called a plumber out just prior to your arrival on the Saturday. On his recommendation we had a new washing machine in place by the Monday morning. We offered an immediate refund as we were unable to change the dishwasher until there was a break in lettings.
Holiday chalets in Cornwall will often have condensers, because the damp air can be a problem with properties as exposed as ours. We have taken your comments very seriously, as this is our first full year of owning Hillcrest, and have put additional insulation in place within the property.
There is certainly ample heating within Hillcrest to ensure all visitors are snug and warm, whatever the weather.
