Grebe Cottage

£482 - £1268 per week

Grebe Cottage is a beautifully appointed and comfortable holiday home, which is a perfect base for a family, but a delightful stay for a couple too. Situated in a lovely cul-de-sac, with a private parking space a few paces from the front door, the cottage is nestled away. The tranquil garden gives you a great sense of privacy; you can hear the stream trickling by while you relax and unwind. There is also a conservatory where you can hide yourself away with a good book on colder days. The surrounding area has so much for you to explore with great pedestrian and cycle paths close by, including the South West Coast Path, right on your doorstep.

One way takes you all the way to St Ives via Porthkidney Sands and 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 easily hop on the Train to St Ives, which is one of the most stunning, eleven minute train journeys to take. There is a deli/restaurant just across the road and two local pubs close by, so you can take a stroll to these without having to move the car. You'll have a great stay at any time of year at Grebe Cottage.

We've had a lovely week in Grebe cottage. It's in a fabulous position to get around the local area. The bus route and trains are really good and plentiful to leave the car at the cottage so no worry of parking. We walked the coast path into St Ives which was ideal on the doorstep. The cottage itself is so cosy and quiet (we slept in the front bedroom with the beds made into a king size) and very comfy. A downstairs toilet was a bonus. We would definitely stay here again. Coming to Cornwall every year this is our second stay through Aspects holidays and they are an excellent company to deal with, the best we have experienced!

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.

Thank you for your wonderful review; it's lovely to know you all had a lovely time and that you were able to make the most of the space and location. The property is situated close to the main road leading into the town, although the road can be busy, and noise may be heard at times, we are glad this was no bother to you and didn't impact your stay. We hope we can welcome you back again for another stay. Phoebe, Customer Services

We've had a lovely week in Grebe cottage. It's in a fabulous position to get around the local area.

We loved our stay at Grebe Cottage. It’s a clean, comfortable, well-equipped and modern property that had plenty of space for a family of four with two small children. It was a perfect location as a base to explore Cornwall.

It was especially useful to have a dishwasher, washing machine, iron and ironing board provided. Plus there was every utensil and implement imaginable provided in the kitchen which made cooking meals very easy!

The residential area is lovely and quiet, and it was very useful having a parking space right next to the house.

We would definitely stay here again.

A clean, comfortable, well equipped cottage in Lelant Saltings. Great location for exploring Cornwall. Private parking space right outside the property. Very short walk to Lelant Saltings Railway Station should you fancy a train ride to St Ives. There are a number of pubs/bistros nearby for a meal/drink. Coastal path walk to St Ives is enjoyable with lovely views on the way. I would highly recommend Aspects Holidays and this cottage!

We really enjoyed our time at Grebe Cottage we loved the property - it has a lovely garden and it had great parking too. It was very quiet, comfortable and well equipped and we really liked the location - we usually stay in Carbis Bay in an apartment so this was something different for us - we usually have a sea view too but actually didn't miss it. We took our bikes with us and it was great having a side entrance into the garden for them.

The location is really good as it is very easy to get a bus into St Ives or the open top bus. Lelant train station is a very pleasant, quiet walk and only 15 minutes away - it is a request stop so you need to let the driver or the conductor know so that they let you off the train - not all trains stop there, so check the timetable - it is marked with an X when they will stop on request.

There are at least five places to eat out within walking distance and a big Asda in Hayle.

So, would we stay again - absolutely - we have already booked for next year.

Lovely clean cottage in great location for beaches, walks and sightseeing.

Lovely cottage, real home from home

Beautiful cottage with parking right outside, made an ideal base for visiting lots of places around Cornwall. Loved the new patio table and chairs which we used as the weather was beautiful. Have stayed there 3 times and would definitely book again.

Nice clean cottage with a great location.

Lovely cottage with a cute garden and conservatory in a great location on the outskirts of St Ives. I walked into St Ives along the most beautiful coastal path with stunning views all the way, it took me about one and a half hours but I did keep stopping to take photos. It’s great if you want a quieter spot and not in the middle of town.

Grebe Cottage was exactly as described on the website and provided us with a week in a clean, well equipped conveniently located house. We would have no hesitation recommending this property and Aspect Holidays to our friends.

A delightful cottage, in a quiet location yet within easy reach of lively St Ives and with good road access to other parts of Cornwall. Good selection of shops within a short drive and several places to eat within easy walking distance. We particularly appreciated the excellent bus service from two nearby bus stops!

A well presented and maintained cottage in a convenient location

Waking up in the morning in the front bedroom and seeing the light steaming through the inadequate blinds and seeing the water stains in them and then coming down into the Kitchen to make a cup of tea and looking out through the kitchen window and seeing all the peeling white paint on the top of the patio railings was not really our ideal start to the day. Sadly, it is not a property we would want to return to as it feels very tired and in need of repainting, redecoration and some of the now well used pieces of furniture are ready for replacement.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback. As in our own homes, things sometimes go wrong and a lot can change in a very short time, so feedback like this is really helpful. We have spoken with the owner, who has since been to the property and confirmed that the top of the patio railings have now been re-painted as well as some internal painting. The whole property will also be re-painted again in the Autumn. He replaced the rope in the drawers in the conservatory with wooden knobs, fixed the broken knob and has obtained quotes for blackout blinds. Whilst blinds are very much a personal preference, with some loving a light bright bedroom and others preferring complete darkness to wake up to; having also noticed the water mark on the blind when here, the owners decided to get the ball rolling on their replacement. They will not be ready until later in the summer though. It is such a shame to hear that you would not look to return to this property, but we hope that you can see that the owners do act on feedback, and we all hope that you still had a great time here.

Had a lovely stay would definitely recommend aspects holidays

Lovely cottage; warm and comfortable. Pretty back garden view of the stream running into the estuary and welcomed by the squirrel and a variety of birds, although we did not see the kingfisher that had been spotted by a previous visitor. Great that there was a downstairs toilet, made life easier for the less mobile guest. A couple of good places to eat within walking distance, but close enough to Hayle to call in a supermarket or pick up a takeaway. Very convenient for getting out onto the main roads for access to St Ives, Penzance etc. Would be very happy to book there again!

We stayed in Grebe Cottage, Lelant. What a beautiful property. Home from home. Fabulous location for our stay and only minutes in the car to the beach. Two pubs within 5 minutes walking distance. Excellent just excellent I would actually love to live there! Thank you Aspect Holidays

Lovely cottage in a great location with a nice garden, plenty of room for 2, 3 or 4 people. Parking right outside was a bonus. A good base away from all the busy places so easy to get around.

Grebe Cottage in Lelant lived up to all expectations; extremely comfortable, nicely presented, well-equipped, and superbly located. Above all, though, Aspects Holidays themselves provided exemplary service. They answered queries long after a “normal” working day had ceased (up to 8 pm, I believe), and were extremely adept at handling problems. When we alerted them, for instance, to a faulty window blind on night one of our arrival, their maintenance chap was on-site and attending to it by 9:00am the next morning. Very good company to deal with, and a high quality of holiday accommodation.

Loved grebe cottage , really great location for adventuring around cornwall. Really felt at home, kids loved it too, they called it their "beach house" and can't wait to go back.


Very comfortable accommodation in a well equipped and maintained cottage. Owner flexible re use by a young family. An easily found convenient location away from crowded holiday hotspots with adequate parking.

Beautiful cottage, in a quiet location, with a lovely little garden, well equipped with plenty of storage. Has everything you need for a great holiday and makes an ideal base for visiting Cornwall with bonus of parking outside property. Have already booked for next year.

Lovely cosy cottage fantastic location easy walk to station to get train to St Ives. Very well equipped. Will visit again.

Grebe Cottage was extremely clean and well equipped. Although compact the space is very well used and the cottage was a fantastic base for our week in West Cornwall.

Lovely cottage very comfortable. Had a great time. Would recommend it to anyone.

Grebe Cottage was a lovely place to stay, beautifully clean and well equipped. The garden is lovely and private and perfect for sitting out morning and evening for meals. The accommodation was very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lelant is a great location, close to St Ives but without all the bustle. Would certainly be happy to return!

Grebe Cottage is a great place to stay. It gives a finishing touch to a lovely holiday. All you need, and more. Wonderful, thank you.

The cottage is a lovely home from home, ideally located for getting out and about. It has everything you could think of including a beautiful garden. We also really appreciated the added touches such as the welcome pack and washing up essentials. This is our first time booking with Aspects and we were really impressed with the property and service.

An excellent cottage in a wonderful location. We are walking the South West Coast Path and the location of the cottage could not have been better.

Lovely accommodation in a handy location. Great for two couples or family. Five minutes walk to the railway stn - so easy to travel into St Ives (and cheaper than parking). Watermill Pub nearest and easy to walk to with good food.

I wish I owned it myself.

A delightful property providing a relaxing base for exploring Cornwall. Thoroughly recommended.
