My wife and I spent a terrific week at the Beach House near the end of May.
There isn’t much more we can add to what has already been said about this holiday home.
It has everything you would ever need for a holiday and is in the most idyllic setting.
Unfortunately for me, my wife never packs light and, especially when there are no flights involved, she takes with her everything but the kitchen sink.
As a result of this, by the time I had unloaded the car with multiple trips up and down the lane from the church car park to the house, I was pretty exhausted and ready for a nice cool drink, and was quickly refreshed just looking out on scenery as breath-taking as any beach I have visited in the Caribbean. Unfortunately neither the air or water temperature were on a par.
From waking up on Sunday morning until going to bed the following Friday night, we were blessed with sun shine and blue skies and we spent many hours walking the beach, local lanes and byways and getting fit.
The walk along the beach from Lelant to St Ives was one of our favourite walks and we enjoyed stopping off half way at Carbis Bay for lunch on the decking overlooking the beach.
We had resisted booking the Beach House because of the price since we first came across it online two years ago; however it turned out to be worth every penny.
It is not only the beach location that is good, Lelant is so well placed for touring Cornwall with many places of interest within a 20 minute drive.
As others have alluded to, Nicola made us feel very much at home with the lovely welcome pack and fresh fruit and flowers.
Yes we could have booked something cheaper with parking closer to the house but please don’t let that put you off unless you have mobility problems. My wife and I are both 60 and not terribly fit but after the first day, we thoroughly enjoyed the exercise.
Nicola has other holiday home close by on the beach which can accommodate larger parties and I’m sure in the future, we will return with some of the family.

Thank you. We really appreciate knowing that our guests have a thoroughly good stay. It's what we work hard and aim for! We know that holiday time is precious and want our guests to get proper R and R.

We have just organised for free parking for our guests on the nearby quay so that should make getting a car load full into the house easier.
We have had many guests, (even those from Australia and The USA compare the beach outside to the Caribbean). The Australian guest said it was better than some of their ones as it doesn't have crocs, jellies or sharks!

Yes we can accommodate larger parties and have received lovely comments from a recent 60th Birthday guest who booked all three houses.

We look forward to you returning again. Our returning guests get a £50 discount!

Best wishes

Nicola

Location, Location, Location. Me, my husband and Alfie the dog stayed for a week in the Beach House, what a fab stay we all had. Weather was beautiful too.The house was clean and tidy, not too big with all amemites you need. Welcome pack greatly appreciated , wine, scones, jam, clotted cream, fruit and flowers. It has a lovely shower and a very comfortable, hugh bed. The house was a few steps from the beach, gated and very private with stunning views of the bay. Very clean beach which allows dogs on it. Alfie met lots of doggy friends! The parking was up by the church which consisted of a short walk down the coastal path with some high steps, not suitable for wheelchairs, but well worth it to stay in the house and it keeps you fit!!! only a short bus ride to St Ives (NOT TRAFFIC FRIENDLY)from by the local pub - The Badger Inn, which serves lovely food and dog friendly too. Will most definately be returning..

Thank you for your lovely review. We very much appreciate knowing when our guests have a good holiday and appreciate the Beach House and it's special location. We appreciate how precious holidays are! Lelant is part of the parish of St Ives but is a bit quieter and as St. Ives was not made for cars it is best to get the bus from the badger or the scenic st Ives Bay train from the park and ride in Lelant. St Ives is then only 10 minutes via a train ride over the beach and around the bay.

There is also free parking on Lelant Quay if organised via us with the Harbour Office.

We look forward to your return!

I needed to escape for a few days with my dogs, for some complete down time... I couldn't have wished for a better property and location. The Beach House is very well equipped cosy and homely. The sea view is to die for and so relaxing. The dogs had a fabulous time! I couldn't get out of bed quick enough for them, and they were raring to get on the beach and explore. The beach is clean, sandy and wonderful and walking with the dogs was just blissful. Amazing views and very comfortable accommodation - wish I had booked a longer stay!. Nicola was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Beach House for a fab break.

We are so pleased that we found the Beach House. It is such an idyllic place and we will definitely be returning.
The location is right on the edge of the estuary at Lelant, just around the corner from St Ives. Just like St Ives the sand and sea are stunning. We found it difficult to leave the house and would have been happy just staying in for the duration of the holiday and watching the tide come and go!
The house is well equipped and we were really pleased to see things like plastic cups and plates for our two small children. There isn't anything that we wanted for whilst in the property.
We were able to catch the train into St Ives (which is worth it for the views!) and miss all the traffic and parking headaches when you get there.
Fabulous rental and high speed Wifi was excellent!
