Inside you will find a real family home where the owners have thought of everything, promising to make your holiday full of memories that will last a lifetime. A secluded, fully enclosed, well established garden which is full of wild flowers, beautiful blooms and mature trees, makes the perfect setting for a summer tea party on the lawn.

You'll find three spacious bedrooms upstairs along with a family bathroom, which has the bath slightly lowered into the floor making it very simple to bath your little ones. With plenty of private parking you can explore the area by car, or Rose Cottage is perfectly positioned to walk to local eateries, or venture along the coast path.

It is so easy for several generations to slip into holiday mode at Rose Cottage, which is close to Porthkidney beach, West Cornwall Golf Club, popular pubs and restaurants including Birdies, Scarlets, The Watermill and The Badger Inn are all within walking distance.

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.

It's great to hear how much you enjoyed this lovely property. We try to make the location as clear as possible within the description, though generally, as others have also highlighted in their reviews, there isn't usually much traffic at night. For anyone that is a light sleeper, some traffic noise at night will be a risk at any property that is on the main road into St Ives or any of the roads within the town centre, so please do speak to the team before booking, so that we can advise on best properties for the most peaceful night's sleep. We always want the website descriptions to be as helpful and useful as possible, so we will have a look at the stairs on the next inspection and check if it would benefit having the steepness of these highlighted within the description. Thanks for your helpful comments and we hope to see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Really enjoyed our stay at Rose Cottage. Beautiful location. Garden was good for Charlie and beautiful walks to enjoy from the cottage. We are looking forward to returning next year. Thankyou.

This a cosy cottage in a quiet, private position. Te front of the cottage is on the main road but even in the July/August school holidays we were not disturbed and indeed after about 9.30pm there was hardly anything going past at all. The garden is fully enclosed and dog friendly. We had a lovely relaxing time.

Lovely spacious cottage everything you could need for a holiday. Beautiful enclosed garden. Handy to be able to park as this can be an issue in some places. Handy for St Ives and surrounding area lovely beaches walk into St Ives or catch the train. Plenty of cycle routes, we cycled to Mousehole, Port Leven and Portreath a few hills but worth it for the cakes snd pasties! and the camel trail to Padstow for a flat ride. Lots of lovely cafes to visit, the horse box cafe at gwithian beach and Birdies bistro at Lelante saltings, the beach front cafe At Perranithnoe to name but a few!

Great cottage in a central location. Good for exploring St Ives area of cornwall. Traffic on A road very busy, more then we thought. Cottage is lovely and it has a delightful garden

Lovely spacious cottage with parking. Great for walking to beach and right near bus stop. On the main road which did keep us awake. Found bed and pillows uncomfortable and settee no suport for back. Great enclosed garden and loved the utility room. Petsonally I wouldnt stay in this cottage sgain but further away from road.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were sorry to hear that road noise kept you awake. Traffic can be heard from this property, but generally it is not bad overnight, so we were sorry to hear that was the case for you. We hope that you enjoyed the convenience of the location though; it makes getting out and about to explore the area, very quick and easy. It can be very difficult to find mattresses, sofas and so on that will suit everyone's taste, everyone being different, and it is disappointing to hear that these were not to your preference. Your feedback is automatically sent to owners, so that they can see guest suggestions, and we will also monitor comments to keep an eye on guest's preferences over the coming months. Thank you for taking the time to send in your review. Tanya, Customer Services

What a fantastic week we had at Rose cottage,we were aware it was located near a main road but it really didn't bother us as it was at the front of the property and you arrive at the back where there is a lovely little lane leading to very easy parking ,step through the garden gate and you have a very large,enclosed garden ideal for us and the dog loved it.! Also fantastic , quiet country lane leading to massive dog friendly beach , small train station ,short journey to St Ives ,several pubs and bistros ten minutes walk away.The cottage had everything we needed,large very well equipped kitchen , plus utility room , king-size bed plus TVs in all the bedrooms , would love to stay again

This cottage is a good base to explore the local area Would highly recommend the coastal walk to st Ives and then train back Local sandy beach is lovely and quiet

Lovely cottage & garden- very safe for the dog. We will definitely return.

Lovely cottage and location very well presented We enjoyed our stay and would come back again

Rose Cottage was perfect for our family holiday. We had some lovely walks, train station is about 10 minutes stroll or you can follow the path to the beach and walk on to Carbis Bay.

We ate at both the Badger and the Water Mill which were both lovely food and in walking distance.

The cottage was very well equipped and the games and Wii used every day by our children.

The road is very busy and can be noisy but this didn’t cause us any issues.

A fabulous little cottage, we would definitely return!

Great location for St Ives using the park and ride. Short walk to the beach and to Hayle for the obligatory pastie!

Rose Cottage is a beautiful little cottage, we had a very comfortable stay here with 4 adults and a Dog. Very good facilities, the kitchen was fantastic, a Range oven with 5 cooking hobs, there's a mircowave, dish washer, fridge, freezer, washer & Dryer, what more could you ask for! Truly a home from home.

We used the Cottage as a base Hayle was no more than a few mins drive to the supermarket & Town and we visited St Ives (10min Drive), Penzance (15min Drive) and various other places in Cornwall.

When we didn't go out on the evening because we'd completely worn out the dog, there were different board games to be played, Books & Magazines to read or even the Nintendo WII.

Please be aware the cottage is located next to the main road between Hayle and St Ives, and can be quite noticeable at times, especially if the windows are open, if you have small children or a nervous dog, it'd be worth considering.

All in all we loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, was a fantastic base to visit Cornwall, the cottage is very well described and well worth a stay.

Very good. Well situated for St ives and Hayle.

Very nice cottage on a beautiful road full of flowers and plants! The beach near by was a wonderful surprise. The games included in the house also provided fun games indoors. Wish we could have stayed longer to appreciate the BBQ and outdoor area. Wonderful stay even during covid-19.

Accommodation needs some TLC. Especially windows. Very old accommodation that is lovely but needs attention. Smelt very damp/musty. Cleanliness not as good as expected.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear that there were a few things that you were disappointed with at this property. We aim to offer a wide range of properties that we hope will meet the different budgets, requirements and tastes of individuals; though you should always expect these to be cleaned to a high standard and we are sorry if there were any areas that were not what you would have expected from the properties that we market. Your feedback has been passed on to the housekeeper. Whilst this property is not marketed as one of our higher end/modern properties, it is always maintained well by the owners and we try to accurately represent the style and decor in the photos, so we hope that it was what you had expected from the photos and description online. Your comments are automatically sent on to the property owners, so that they can consider any suggestions for future improvements though, so thank you for the helpful comments and we hope to see you back soon.

Rose Cottage is a good base for a family to stay and tour the local area. Penzance, Marazion, Helston, Hayle, Carbis and St Ives are in easy reach. Local pubs (especially the Badger and the Windmill) are superb. Birdies Bistro is a real treat. All are walking distance. The path behind the property to Lelant Station, St Unys, and porthkidney beach is excellent for walkers, cyclists, joggers and dog walkers. Porthkidney beach is one of the best in the country- quiet, dog friendly, clear sand and water. The property is very good with spacious bedrooms and well equipped downstairs. Kitchen is very good and utility area is useful to keep on top of clothes washing. The garden keeps the dogs happy for sure.

We had an excellent holiday. The little touches such as the basket of wine and biscuits, milk in the fridge, dishwasher and washing tablets and even there being a Christmas tree up all made such a difference to it going from good to excellent. The location of the cottage was excellent to get anywhere in that part of Cornwall easily, the cottage had everything you needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful cottage for visitors and your dog, the dog will love the garden. Please do not be put off by comments about road noise, once inside you will be so happy with your choice you will not notice the outside noise.

Really nice, homely property. Plenty of space, lovely garden for the dog and children, and close proximity to the beaches and St Ives. Really enjoyed our stay thank you.

The accommodation is spacious and suited our big family get together. Located well for ease of access to places around the coast. A lovely welcome gift of local produce. Arrived late on a chilly evening to a warm accommodation was most welcome.

Brilliant location, short walk to the beach which is open all year round for dogs. Scarlet Wines is great for breakfast and is a 5 minute walk.

The cottage is lovely inside but unfortunately it backs straight onto the very busy main road to St Ives, the road noise was horrendous day and night so if you are a light sleeper this may not be suitable. Very steep stairs and lots of steps.

Thank you for your feedback; we are glad to hear that you liked Rose Cottage but sorry that you found the location a little noisy, due to the nearby road. We had amended the description after the last comment on this, just to make it as clear as possible, although we show the location on the map, we appreciate that for those that are not familiar with the area, the additional information may be useful. We hope that you agree that the fantastic, convenient location for access to Carbis Bay and St Ives, and easy access to the a30 to explore all that the area has to offer, made it worthwhile. Thank you for also sending in your thoughts on the number and steepness of stairs; whilst traditional Cornish cottages can be a little smaller, with layouts/stairs more quirky and steeper than in more modern buildings, it hasn't been noted before, that these are particularly steep but we like to be completely open and honest with photos and descriptions so we will continue to monitor further feedback and check on the next inspection, amending the description as necessary. Tanya, Customer Services

Rose cottage is in an excellent location. It was very clean with towels supplied and the amenities in the cottage were great, everything you could want to make your stay there easier. Lots of information and leaflets were also there giving you information of things to do in the local and surrounding areas. We would highly recommend.

This is the best Aspects Cottage we have stayed in. It is thoughtfully and beautify furnished and in an excellent location. The bus to St Ives stops outside and Hayle beach is a 5 minute drive away or a twenty minute walk along the coast path at the rear of the property. The garden is delightful and secluded with a lovely patio area and bbq. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Smart Tv and Games consul was a hit with the children. There are a few small things, which if addressed, will take this cottage from excellent to outstanding

Thank you for the lovely comments; we are glad to hear how much you liked Rose Cottage, and thank you for your suggestions of extra crockery, additional bathroom storage and a larger fridge. All comments are passed on to the property owners for their consideration, and it is really helpful to hear what you would find most useful to make your stay even better. Hopefully we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

We really loved Rose Cottage. Very well equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The welcome pack was amazing. We and our dog Lucy enjoyed the garden, had a couple of bbqs and just chilled. We look forward to another visit in the future.

We booked last minute and Kimberley at Aspects was very helpful, we have already booked another cottage. Rose Cottage is lovely, parking was very easy and the garden is nice, everything you wanted was there. The only down point was the road noise. Becky & Mark Robinson.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Glad to hear that our Kimberley could help you find the perfect place for your last minute break; we're glad that you liked it! And thanks for your helpful comment about the road noise. When you are staying in the properties, you get to experience them in a different way than we do when we visit them, so feedback like this is really helpful. The property does back onto the main road into St Ives and Carbis Bay, so at peak times of the day and year, this road will be busy. Having now had a couple of comments on this, we have amended the description to highlight the risk at certain times. We hope that you agree though, that this lovely grade II listed property and extremely convenient location for accessing not only St Ives and Carbis Bay but also West Cornwall and the A30, makes for a great base to explore and enjoy everything that Cornwall has to offer. Tanya, Customer Services

Rose Cottage was exactly as described, very clean, well decorated with good equipment and facilities. It has a convenient position and a large private garden which is secure for both the children and dogs. Had not appreciated before arriving that the cottage backs on to a main road, however, this proved not to be too much of an issue. A lovely week.

Beautiful property and garden, great for pets. Excellent location near a dog friendly beach, pub restaurants, bus stop and train line. Very thoughtful little touches which made it quite a home from home.

A beautifully appointed house, with a lovely enclosed garden. Plenty of room to park. The house has everything you could need for a stay, and has a high quality feel to the furniture and fittings. Ideally located near Lelant Saltings train station. Would happily recommend a stay here.

A characterful house, extremely well-equipped and comfortable. The location was excellent, being really near the station for the beautiful train journey to St Ives, and stunning beaches a short car journey away. The very private secure garden was ideal for the family.

Fantastic stay at this very welcoming excellently equipped cottage. Even the dog felt at home. Thank you

We had a very comfortable and cosy stay at this well equipped cottage, all appliances are provided and the property is spotless.
