September 2020

We had a post lock down break here at the sail loft. We had a lovely break. We felt honoured and very happy to be there. Good quality facilities. Comfy beds. The tropical courtyard garden was a nice little peaceful area. The bench at the front has lovely evening sun. There’s the occasional slow moving train at the back but it’s only a branch line. The garden had a bit of sun and a bit of shade too. Holiday Rental house one side and the other side seemed nice people. Good base for walking out and exploring via train, bus or car. We had a good holiday.

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.

Lovely house, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Thoroughly enjoyed walking along St Michael's Way, and seeing the wealth of wildlife on the Estuary. Really good break, will book again, lockdowns permitting!

Lovely house and very well equipped and quiet Location a bit isolated in that there was nowhere pleasant for an evening stroll but apart from that very good

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It is such a shame that we did not get to chat to you while you were here, as there are several beautiful walks that we could recommend from The Sail Loft, including one from the property, along the estuary and following the coast path towards St Ives. The views along the estuary and the beaches following on from that are truly spectacular! In terms of being isolated; we appreciate if you are used to a large town or city, it will feel quieter here, but there is still a lot on your doorstep. The Sail Loft sits within a quiet residential area, a 20 min stroll to St Erth station, 3 minutes to Lelant Saltings station, both taking you into Carbis Bay and St Ives. You are within a 5 minute walk to Birdies, Scarlets, The Old Quay House and The Watermill pubs/restaurants and a few minutes' drive into the town of Hayle, karting, pitch and putt, supermarket and other shops and restaurants. If you fancy a location that is right in the heart of a busy town/village, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us so that we can help you to make sure that you pick somewhere better suited and answer any questions that you may have on nearby attractions and walks. We love where we live and love to share our recommendations :-)

Loved the welcome cream tea and prosecco, very well equipped kitchen.

Great location for exploring the surrounding areas and lovely pub nearby, would definitely recommend this property.

We had the most amazing New Year in St Ives

The property location is excellent for access to St Ives and the surrounding areas. The owners have provided everything you could need with regard to the kitchen area. Local supermarkets and restaurants are within five minutes drive with at least three within walking distance. After a long drive it was very welcome to have tea, coffee, sugar, milk and best of all a cream tea waiting in the kitchen.

A lovely week's stay at The Sail Loft. A great location & comfortable property with a charming garden and decor.

good location very relaxing

We would recommend the The Sail Loft very highly, it suited our needs perfectly. The property is very well equipped and is furnished to a high standard and much thought has been given by the owners to really make this a home from home. Our stay in May (we cannot speak for what it might be like at the height of the Summer season) was very peaceful and we liked seeing the trains and hearing the birdsong. Having a secure place to store our bikes was also much appreciated. We will definitely book this property again.

Lovely location, very homely and comfortable. Great cottage.

Lovely property, well maintained and clean and comfortable.

The cottage was lovely and bright with a beautiful garden in a great location, perfect for catching the train to St Ives. It was nice to have tea coffee and milk provided for our arrival Scarlet Wines is an excellent restaurant, good service,lovely food and wine selection and deli virtually on the doorstep. Birdies also very good. Good walks to Porthkidney beach and Carbis Bay

Perfect for visiting St Ives and touring around Cornwall. Very spacious and clean with all modern equipment and the delight of watching the local train pass by.

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.

A beautiful well equipped house in a great location. Gorgeous walks all around and a handy train ride into St Ives. Only £8 for a family of four.

Fantastic accommodation ,above expectations !!,We had a great holiday

Delightful home. Very helpful and friendly staff who answer the phone quickly - a rarity today. One of the best holidays we've ever had.
