Bay Tree Cottage Lelant

£430 - £1137 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.

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!

August 2020

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aug 2019

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

Aug 2019

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.

Aug 2019

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.
