If you are looking for a picturesque waterside location then look no further. This tastefully furnished and beautifully appointed three storey house, is in an idyllic setting with dramatic views overlooking the beautiful Hayle Estuary - an ideal location for keen bird watchers. You are a short walk away from miles of golden sands, starting at Porthkidney Beach, where you can while away the hours with family or friends. The Sail Loft is in a brilliant holiday spot, within easy reach of St Ives by train. You can park your car, take a short stroll to the station and take the ten minute, coastal train ride into the town.

It takes no longer than ten minutes and is one of the most stunning train journeys you will ever experience - you won't tire of it! You are in the perfect location for exploring the rest of Cornwall too. You will see it has been lovingly furnished with a great deal of care and attention to detail.

Would definitely not hesitate to consider this property again if we were to come back with the same amount of people (four of us). Well appointed with a pretty complete kitchen. Extremely convenient for the train into St. Ives, a short drive into Hayle, and convenient for the A30 to get everywhere else.

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.
