More about the property
After a day of sun, sea and surf at Hayle Towans Beach you may be welcomed back to White Duck Cottage by the ducks on the wide millpond opposite. Occupying a delightful hidden spot on the edge of the town, the cottage is within easy walking distance of the pubs, restaurants, ice cream parlour and importantly the town's famous Cornish pasty shop. Perched on the edge of St Ives Bay, Hayle has a three mile long golden beach within 15 minutes walk of the cottage. Hayle Towans and Gwithian merge into Godrevy at eastern end with its dramatic lighthouse topped island and superb cafe. To the western end the internationally renowned bird watching venue at the sandy Hayle Estuary offers the chance to see many rare migrating species. A bustling town, Hayle has a variety of shops plus public tennis courts, a children's play park and a skate park. With a mainline railway station in the town you can leave the car at home to explore nearby St Ives on the branch line, head east to the cathedral city of Truro or west to Penzance. The ground floor accommodation at White Duck Cottage has an open plan feel with a broad sitting/dining room across the cottage and a smart modern kitchen. An open fire, central heating, double glazing and thick cob walls ensure comfort whatever the weather. The first floor bedrooms are spacious and uncluttered and the bathroom has crisp seaside feel with contemporary lighting and a beamed ceiling. A small garden lies to the front and from the sitting area a glazed door leads to a patio with steps up to an enclosed rear garden. A very private sun trap, this is the ideal spot for alfresco meals or simply soaking up some sunshine.

We loved St Ives and the Lizard peninsular. Hayle proved to be an ideal location to explore western Cornwall. The cottage was just lovely...
