Grebe Cottage Lelant

 
 
£413 - £1072
Book

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 and the tranquil garden gives you a great sense of privacy. You can hear the stream trickling by while you relax and unwind, and 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.

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.
