    “I was very disappointed with the whole holiday experience staying at this property.”

    The property had not been cleaned properly, especially the downstairs toilet and kitchen, there were hairs on the floor in the toilet, the oven grill still had food on it and the draining board had not been cleaned properly. The carpets appeared to have not been hovered properly and the wooden floor in the living room needed cleaning. There was an ants nest outside and the ants entered the property moving around the hall way and the kitchen. The question is if the property was cleaned on the Saturday morning surely they would have seen them and reported them which they did not. The garden is not as per the photograph on the advert and was in serious need of weeding. There were scones, milk and clotted cream in the kitchen upon arrival, unfortunately the milk and scones had passed their best before dates. I spent the first hour or so of my holiday cleaning the property which I have never done on holiday before and would not return to this property again. I never really felt comfortable and hardly used the kitchen during my stay. Despite the above I have to say Sykes response was excellent, I emailed them on Saturday evening and they telephoned me on Sunday morning. They had cleaners in on the Monday and the ants were gone by Tuesday. I was offered a partial refund on my stay which helped and a voucher for future use. As Sykes were very helpful I would not hesitate on using or recommending them, just would not stay at this property again. Malcolm

The property

Saffron Cottage, in the tranquil village of Lelant, sits on the mouth of the Hayle estuary, with a large sandy beach on its Atlantic side and a strip of sandy coves accompanying the fast flowing natural beauty of estuary waters inland.

From the cottage stroll three minutes to a choice of two character pubs for a hearty meal washed down with traditional Cornish ales and cyders.

Within a short walk is the scenic coastal railway, two stops down the line and you arrive at the picturesque favoured family destination of St Ives. St Ives is a charming fishing village whose heart lies around its harbour also famous for its art.

Browse the many art and craft galleries, spy the artists at work and enjoy the bijou shops.

Enjoy lunch or dinner from a wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, traditional inns and bars, many on the waterfront overlooking the sheltered beach and quay.

Within a short drive visit Marazion with its long stretch of sandy beach and energetic water-sport action.

The dramatic St Michael's Mount, rising dramatically from the sea with its fortress atop is a must-see hotspot.

Walk the narrow causeway to this part-time island during low water or board a ferry at high tide to the tiny harbour with its huddle of cottages, restaurant and cafe.

The cottage is in a highly desirable development and combines period architecture with a contemporary interior and finish.

The living room boasts French doors and a fire to keep you toasty off-season and a well equipped kitchen with breakfast table.

The bedrooms are comfortably dressed with smart white bed linen and vibrant red throws.

To the rear, the enclosed patio garden provides a safe haven for children and is a perfect spot for chilled drinks and alfresco dining.

About the location


St Ives 7 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.
