The property

The Elms is a divinely presented period cottage in a tranquil village setting within easy reach of stunning beaches, resorts and coves. Minutes from the popular
estuary town of Hayle, it makes a fabulous base for friends, family and couples seeking an idyllic escape for both rural and coastal recreation and relaxation. The fabulous beach at Gwithian is less than two miles away, and Carbis Bay and St Ives are reached within a 15 minute drive.

Nestled at the head of a leafy no-through lane in Connor Downs village, The Elms boasts detached, beautifully styled and comfortable accommodation throughout. The interior offers character and charm with beamed ceilings, a sitting room with a mock gas flame stove and dining area with inglenook fireplace and feature Range - a lovely social spot for cream teas! The pristine wet room is conveniently positioned on the ground floor, along with a delightful twin
bedroom and well equipped kitchen for rustling up feasts. The two bedrooms on the first floor guarantee good slumber in nautically inspired hues of white and blue, plus a smart family bathroom. The prettiest ever garden awaits - an enclosed haven with lawn and patio perfect for safe play, relaxation and birdsong in the sun. What better place for alfresco nibbles and tipples. The secure summerhouse is ideal for storing cycles and surf gear.

Hayle has an eclectic mix of restaurants and inns, shops and supermarkets ideal for stocking up with provisions, plus pasty emporiums when hunger strikes.Enjoy a scenic ramble alongside the estuary. Less than two miles away, the sandy dunes of Gwithian and a breathtaking coastline of golden beaches arc around Hayle and Carbis Bay to the iconic seaside destination of St Ives, with picturesque harbour and galleries galore. Swim, surf or picnic - the sunsets here are amazing. Don walking boots and ramble atop the coastpath to the headland at Godrevy Point. From the lighthouse, continue along the cliff top to the secret cove of grey seals. Keen golfers will enjoy a round on the challenging West Cornwall course. Sail at Marazion or venture across to the cobbled causeway to landmark
attraction St Michaels Mount. Penzance, Newlyn and charismatic Mousehole are all easily accessible. The Elms is well placed for water sports, country rambles
and discovering beautiful gardens. Visit Trevaskis Farm; a 5 min drive away for local produce, 'pick your own' and excellent restaurant. Or simply walk to the local
pub for a traditional ale after a super day at the beach!

About the location

HAYLE

St Ives 5 miles; Penzance 7.5 miles.

Hayle is in the far-flung south western corner of Cornwall and sits on an important RSPB wildlife estuary flowing out to the beautiful St Ives Bay, where visitors can enjoy three miles of golden sandy beaches, walks, history and wildlife. St Ives harbour has its own small fishing fleet and there are plentiful boat trips skippered by locals keen to showcase the best that Cornwall has to offer, whether it be seal watching at Seal Island, a couple of hours' mackerel fishing or a relaxing trip to Godrevy Lighthouse. Hayle has plenty of activities out of the water too; Paradise Park is a wildlife park, home to some spectacular parrots, otters and red pandas. Hayle has a range of shops, restaurants and bars scattered around the estuary and harbour area. There are skittles and karting for the family, and for golfers, one of the best links golf courses in Cornwall is at Lelant, a mile out of Hayle. But the jewel of Hayle is the three miles of golden sandy beach, with fantastic surfing at Gwithian where there is a surf shop, lessons and hire of equipment. For the less energetic there are beach cafes where you can take in the views and watch the children play. As Hayle is centrally located you can easily access many other places by either public transport (there is a train station at Hayle) or driving. St. Ives is a short drive away where you can wander through the narrow streets, visit the art galleries or admire the colourful sub tropical gardens. Within easy reach of Hayle is the Minack Theatre (35 mins), Falmouth Maritime Museum (40 mins), Eden Project (40 mins), St. Michael’s Mount (15 mins) and many other fantastic tourist attractions for dry or wet days.
