Excellent property and superb location. Can't wait to return!

Birdies Bistro 5 min walk....awesome breakfast!

Our third visit to Saltings Seacret. Very comfortable and well equipped. Relaxed from the moment we arrived as it felt like home from home. Good location, quiet and walking distance of trains to St Ives or Penzance.

Property is fantastic.

The house itself was very spacious for a family of 5, including a baby. Kitchen had everything we needed, including plastic plates and cutlery for children.

Own parking space a bonus, as well as the garage space which included some great beach equipment that saved us having to bring it with us. You could park a car in there as well if needed.

I'm terms of location, again fantastic. Short drives to various great beaches such as Porthcurno, play areas and attractions. Also, there is a lovely walk from the house along the coastal path to Porthkidney Beach.

A park and ride around allows easy access to St Ives. Compared to other parts of Cornwall, the traffic is also far lighter.

Can't go wrong with this property and location at all.

The house is well equipped, very clean and comfortable. It was also very quiet during our stay. The property is spacious and light. We would not want to sleep in the bedroom at entry level which has a sofa bed as it felt a bit chilly and basic even though the upper 2 floors were warm. I suppose it could suit teenagers and they would have their own TV. For us the location is great as you don’t have to drive into St Ives which can be very busy and tricky to find parking. We either walked in or caught the bus or train. Please note not all trains stop at Lelant/Lelant Saltings at certain times of the year. Seems completely ridiculous as the train just sails past both stops, goodness knows who decide this was a good idea given the advice on not using ours cars but to take advantage of public transport! We have always enjoyed staying in Lelant so this property was a great home from home for us.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It is lovely to read how much you love the area, and enjoyed another stay here, and thank you for your helpful comments. Just to help reassure you about the temperature of the ground floor bedroom; as with most houses, heat rises making upper levels feel warmer, so with a bedroom downstairs, the owners have been mindful of this and had the heating system ‘balanced’ by a qualified heating engineer earlier this year, restricting the temperature through thermostatic controlled valves, so that the heat is reduced on upper floors compared to downstairs temperatures. So if it is feeling a little chilly downstairs, the heating can be turned on, without it getting too hot upstairs. It certainly is a shame that the number of stops for Lelant/Lelant Saltings has been significantly reduced and is certainly now something to bear in mind, though St Erth train station is also a short walk from the property, so it is still possible to get the train in to St Ives from there so that you can experience one of the most scenic train journeys in the country. Thanks again for highlighting this and we look forward to seeing you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

The property is excellent and the location is good in spite of the reduced train service from Lelant/Lelant Saltings to St Ives. We think people shouldn't be put off by this as the park and ride at St Erth is very convenient. The walk to Lelant station is also only 10 minutes.The house is comfortable and very well furnished with a welcoming and homely feel. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Quiet and beautifully furnished property. Real home from home. Everything needed for a stress free holiday was provided. Fantastic location to discover Cornwall. Our first time in this part of the country but not our last.

We loved our stay at Saltings Seacret - Aspects staff were very friendly and helpful, the house has everything you could need and is in the perfect location for seeing all corners of Cornwall. Will definitely return!

The house had everything and more! There was everything you would ever need. Perfect location for exploring and walking, beautiful views and great for eating out with local pubs nearby. Ideal for families and couples, we are already planning our return visit. I would certainly recommend to family and friends. Thank you.

Everything was fine. Great property in very convenient location. A few more tea towels would have been useful but all in all one of the best properties I have stayed in.
