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. 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.

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.
