    “Yes we enjoyed our holiday weather was perfect.”


    House situated for well for touring Cornwall. Lock to front door was difficult at times to unlock from outside. We couldn't find any information on local amenities ie;numbers for doctors, hospital,dentist etc.hopefully never needed but emergencies arise sometimes. Instructions for use of the cooker. More toilet rolls would have been welcome we were left one in the bathroom and one in downstairs loo and they were like tissue paper luckily there was only two of us even so we had to buy some. Also it needed a very thorough dusting, lounge floor could have done with a wash. Sad to say we have stayed in much better equipped cottages for less money.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to comment. We’re really pleased to hear you had a good holiday – it always helps when we have fine weather! Thank you very much for the points highlighted, we’d like to let you know that an updated welcome folder will be put together (before the very next booking) to cover local amenities and instructions. The housekeepers who look after the property will also be changing and with a new team responsible we are confident any cleanliness issues will be thoroughly addressed. Thank you again for taking the time to send us your feedback and we hope to see you in Cornwall again soon! Owner relations

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.

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.

Within a short walk is the scenic coastal railway (the line runs behind the cottage's garden), two stops down the line and you arrive at the picturesque favoured family destination of St Ives. 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.
