Bay Tree Cottage

£460 - £1210 per week

Bay Tree Cottage is an attractive granite property, set in the lovely Saltings Reach in Lelant. The cottage is cosy, very comfortable and has a sunny, fully enclosed garden, which is perfect for those with a dog and is set alongside a small stream that you can hear whilst you unwind. Close by, you will also find a beautiful, long stretch of golden sands at Porthkidney, which is a year-round, dog walking beach. Bay Tree Cottage is perfect for all ages looking for a relaxing getaway. It's also a great spot for exploring the coast path, which can be found just outside the door. There is also a pub a short walk away and a delectable wine bar across the street.

The coast path leads to St Ives via Carbis Bay, with beautiful views over the coastline, or take the opposite direction to the heritage town of Hayle and the Towan beaches beyond. The RSPB Hayle Nature Reserve is also less than a mile away. If you want to travel further afield you can hop on the Train to St Ives, which is only a short walk from the front door and is one of the most stunning train journeys to take.

Holidays in Lelant

Lelant is a pretty, quaint village that is situated on the main route to Carbis Bay and St Ives. Rent a self catering property in Lelant and you'll be well placed to dine out at the delicious deli and restaurant, 'The Old Forge', enjoy a round of golf at West Cornwall Golf Club, or jump on the branch line to St Ives town.

Lelant itself has two pubs, a restaurant, a golf course with stunning views and a vast beach with areas of secluded woodland. Holidays in Lelant are perfect for couples who want the peace of staying somewhere rural but are close to local amenities. You're never far from the beach when you stay in Lelant; take a stroll alongside the estuary, through the sand dunes and down to the vast expanse of Porthkindney Sands where the River Hayle joins the Atlantic Ocean.

Did you know...

Porthkidney beach is dog-friendly all year round!

Things to do near Lelant

If you book a holiday in Lelant you’re perfectly situated for sightseeing, with a nearby train line to St Ives or Penzance for spot of shopping. If you jump in the car you can travel down the far west coast, one of the most beautiful driving routes in the UK. Stop off at the Gurnard’s Head for a bite of lunch or make your way down to Cape Cornwall and Sennen Cove

For those looking to explore on foot, the 12.5 mile St Michael's Way walk from Lelant to Marazion offers a great way to experience the Cornish countryside. The walk meanders through moorland and the small villages of Gulval and Ludgvan before emerging in Marazion with St Michael's Mount in clear view.

For something requiring a little less energy, visit Steeple Woods Nature Reserve for a more relaxing walk and spectacular views. Read more on our blog.

Lovely little house in a great location for either coast , parking for 1 car right outside . Enclosed garden for dog . Comfy sofa and bed Birdies Bistro is within walking distance for breakfast and well worth a visit .

We recently stayed at Bay tree cottage.Location was great and cottage was very cosy, kitchen quite small,Garden was a good size with outside seating also lovely conservatory.

Ideal house for us, as conversatory gave extra space for adults to relax in whilst our teenager watched Netflix in the front room. Dog enjoyed pottering around the fully enclosed garden and sleeping in the shade of the tree. Recommend Birdies Bistro for watching the birds in the estuary whilst enjoying a coffee and The Forge restaurant and the Watermill pub both a short walk away for friendly service and delicious meals. Missed convenience of being able to get the train from Lelant Saltings, shame it isn't a request stop like Lelant Station.

We loved our stay here .

Just a small cottage but still very well equipped and the conservatory and lovely patio area a bonus .

Some road and rail noise but this didn’t detract from our stay .

Would book this cottage again .

Lovely cottage, small but cosy. In a great location.

Excellent cottage, very good location with great access to all areas of Cornwall. Short walk to either St Erth and Leylant stations to get the train into St Ives. A couple of eating places within walking distance.

bay tree cottage was lovely, handy for everywhere we wish to visit the cottage was spotless and well equipped would definitely recommend

We stayed at Bay Tree Cottage for a 3 night short break. It was a beautiful property and we enjoyed the garden. Good local walks to Hayle, St Erth and Carbis Bay. Great location for visiting St Ives and easy drive to Marazion, St Michael's Mount.

Bay tree cottage is a lovely retreat for a relaxing holiday with your dog. It’s well equipped and is spotlessly clean We found it a good base for us to travel all areas in Cornwall. Would highly recommend this property ??

Bay Tree Cottage is really lovely, with a nice little garden, is very comfortable, and very well located for the great beach at Lelant as well as for the train station (for a most picturesque train ride into St Ives). The cottage was spotlessly clean. It's also easy to get to some good pubs which are within walking distance (Old Quay House and the Watermill) and The Old Forge is great for breakfast and lunch (every day) and dinner at the weekend. We will stay here again. A word about Aspects as well, their service is excellent!

We were delighted with the property, it was clean and spacious enough for us and our teenage kids, the garden provided a lovely setting for dining alfresco, we would definitely book again and use Aspects holidays.

Lovely cottage, very well presented and scrupulously clean. Great location, very peaceful, with plenty of space and the garden was great for the dog. Parking space a real bonus.

Clean, bright and modern cottage, with a large conservatory giving plenty of extra space for all the family. In a great location, whether exploring the coastal path, relaxing on the beautiful train journey into St Ives, or an evening walk for food and drink.

What a lovely house and Garden. Very well furnished and spotless clean.A generous well come pack including bread and processo and even dog biscuits and poo bags for the dog.A short walk to the bus stop, making the day in St Ives stress free.would highly recommend had a brilliant holiday.

Thoroughly recommended, it is clean, tidy, in an excellent location for exploring West Cornwall, and has a lovely enclosed dog friendly garden. Aspect Holidays are also very polite and friendly to communicate with, and the owners must be congratulated on this lovely little cottage. Andy & Julie K.

We have just recently returned home after our stay at Bay Tree Cottage and we honestly couldn't be happier with our experience. We were made very welcome when we arrived with a little package waiting in the kitchen. The cottage was beautiful and felt so homely with so much space for the 3 of us and our little dog. Everything that we ventured out to do during our week was within 30-45 minute drive, with also being able to walk to st ives with amazing views of the sea and countryside and our little girl had so much fun. Would 100% recommend this lovely little cottage to anyone for a fabulous family holiday.

Fabulous holiday in Bay Tree cottage- had everything we needed for a perfect stay. Garden ideal for our small dog.

Only downside is that the station at Lelant Saltings only has one train a day , so a longer walk or short drive to st erth- shame it isn't a request stop more like Lelant station

BayTree Cottage is a beautiful light and airy house. It is set up with everything you need for an amazing break away. The beds are so comfy which is so important on holiday. Aspects are easily contacted and are happy and helpful. The Cottage is within easy reach of St Earth station where you can hop on the train to Carbis bay or St Ives. We had a fantastic stay in this lovely accommodation, and cannot rate it highly enough.

3rd time we have stayed at this property. Everything you need is here! Great location for walking to the beach, or St Ives, or round to Hayle. Pubs nearby. Shops a short drive. Train to St Ives from Lelant Saltings is a must! Highly recommended.

What a fantastic cottage great location for the train to St Ives or Penzance very well equipped throughout, the garden was great our little dog Stanley he loved it.

We have stayed in many properties in Cornwall and this is one of the best really looking forward to coming again.

From the moment you walk in the door you feel welcome.

Russell, Alison and Stanley

Bay Tree Cottage is a very comfortable, well equipped cottage in a fantastic location for exploring West Cornwall and beyond. Highly recommend.

Lovely home from home with everything you could need. Excellent base with easy access to the train station and a lovely walk to the beach.

A lovely cosy cottage. Tastefully furnished. Situated perfectly to catch the train into St. Ives. Porthkidney beach close by to walk the dog. Several eateries close by if you don’t want to venture far.

Great location and very clean, lovely property

I would highly recommend this lovely cottage. It is in an excellent location for visiting St Ives and the beautiful surrounding areas.

Perfect place to stay for visiting St Ives without parking issues Would love to stay again during the summer months to enjoy full use of the conservatory and garden
