Book

Situated within the half acre grounds of the main house, this timber clad eco lodge offers a slice of luxury in one of the most stunning locations on Cornwall's coastline. Perfectly equipped for couples or a family of four, the bi-fold doors open out onto a generous sized balcony with uninterrupted views across Porthkidney beach towards Godrevy lighthouse and beyond.

This superb holiday home provides an excellent standard of accommodation with oak flooring with in-built lighting, a logburner for cooler nights and stunning views from every room. The outside decked balcony is ideal for alfresco eating and relaxing on. Immediately opposite the Lodge runs the Coastal Path which will guide you along two miles of sheltered and incredibly picturesque coastline right into the heart of St Ives. Hawkes Point itself is a renowned angling spot, where sea bass pass on their way in and out of Hayle Estuary. The Lodge forms part of a small group of properties, Hawkes Point Cottage, Dolphin Watch and The Lookout, enabling larger parties to accommodate up to 20 people if required.

Additional information

wall mounted electric heaters. Hawkes Point itself is accessed by a steep, single track road and may prove challenging for some vehicles. The parking space is suitable for a small car, although alternative on-road parking can be found on Headland Road. Access to the property is via a winding pathway with steps so may not be suitable for the elderly or less able. Please note that the garden is for the sole use of Hawkes Point Cottage, WiFi, short breaks available.

 

Dolphin Watch Hawkes Point is a delightful place to relax and unwind. Owner and agents very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will hopefully return again to take in the beautiful surroundings and listen to the waves lapping the shoreline. We used the coastal path daily to walk to St Ives but you would have to be fairly fit as it was quite hilly in places, yet worth the effort to take in the views on the way. Lovely to return and relax with a drink in the evening looking out over the sea views. Overall would recommend this booking easily.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Dolphin Watch Hawkes Point is a delightful place to relax and unwind. Owner and agents very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will hopefully return again to take in the beautiful surroundings and listen to the waves lapping the shoreline. We used the coastal path daily to walk to St Ives but you would have to be fairly fit as it was quite hilly in places, yet worth the effort to take in the views on the way.

Amazing views, would love to return

August 2018

Absolutely stunning property with amazing views. We were blown away and haven't stopped raving about it since we returned. Would love to go back one day. We did quite a lot of walking up and down steep hills so would suggest that it is better suited to families with older children and not little ones. Our daughters were 6 and 8 and could handle the hills and the 12 minute walk down to Carbis Bay. Would highly recommend.

May 2017

gorgeous location, handy for the stunning beaches.

October 2016

Fabulous property in a great 'blow away the cobwebs' location.

October 2016

I would love to put something about what a wonderful property which is a great credit to the owner and the person who looks after it but I cannot due to car access

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry that you experienced issues with accessing your parking space. Despite you having a vehicle which would be a suitable size to fit the advertised small space, on this occassion, there was a car at the top of the road, blocking the rest of the road that leads to this property. We contacted the agents that market the property where that car was parked, and tried everything possible to resolve the situation, and are so sorry that this happened during your stay. I hope that the actions taken by the team, to resolve the matter for you, helped; we are just sorry that you experienced that problem earlier on in your stay. Tanya, Customer Services.

Beautiful modern clean lodge with a stunning view across Carbis Bay. St Ives a short drive or train ride away. Access not really suitable for older guests or people with large cars as parking can be an issue.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are delighted to hear that you liked this beautiful property; those views are just amazing aren't they? With its tucked away position on Hawkes Point, great access to the coastal path and the most amazing views, it does mean that the access is tricky and not suitable for everyone, and parking at the property, is not suitable for all vehicles. We are very sorry if this was not what you had expected, and hope that it didn't cause your party any problems. For anyone interested in these properties, we strongly advise checking through the website description, and please do not hesitate to call one of the sales team, so that we can check that it is going to be the right place for you. Tanya, Customer Services.

Fantastic views and great if you love trains!

February 2016
