Carntiscoe, Absolutely brilliant, could not recommend it enough. The house had absolutely everything we needed and the cinema room was a great addition! We would love to come back. Please pass on our thanks to the owners. 10/10 thank you so much!

A great house in a peaceful location. Plenty for room for 3 generations to have their own areas. The music room was a great bonus for the children. An easy drive into St Ives and Hayle. Would love to stay again.

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.

A wonderful week at Carnistoe, a great place for all the family, those who wanted to relax, those who wanted to work a bit and a great cinema room and kitchen for us all to get together. It had eveything we needed, we'll be back! Thank you.

Carntiscoe was a great family home catering to different generations abd enough space for all, including 2 happy dogs who chased around the wrap around garden. The house was really comfortable, from the main bedroom the views were fantastic, large welcoming kitchen with all amenities to hand, from saucepans to whisks and Tupperware. The house has a music and cinema room ( alas we weren’t musicians but the cinema room has a multitude of great films when the weather was rainy and windy. With four legged friends there are great walks to be had from your foot but also the coastal path is five minutes by car. As are yellow sandy beaches with St Ives just round the corner. We will definitely book Carntiscoe again for a fabulous family holiday.

Large, well equipped property with privacy in abundance yet not isolated. Very easy access to all local amenities and beaches, yet no close neighbours

2 separate bedroom wings on upper floor with own shower/toilet give privacy and 1 bedroom and en-suite downstairs for those less mobile

Cinema and music room great for keeping any children entertained, large selection of board games and some sports equipment

Ideal property for those who want seclusion without isolation or a large multi generation family
