Cleverly combining a modern influence with the traditional fishermen's cottages of yesteryear, Bay Tree Cottage is situated in the prime location of Saltings Reach just on the outskirts of beautiful St Ives.  This two bed granite cottage is the perfect holiday abode complete with parking and a spacious conservatory leading to its sunny split level garden and patio area, the perfect spot to enjoy some alfresco dining Cornish style.  One small/medium well behaved dog is welcome to stay.

The Property

This stylish cottage has a fabulous home from home feel.  A spacious conservatory complete with dining furniture and sofa ensures of an alfresco ambiance throughout the season.  Bay Tree Cottage is open plan in style with well equipped kitchen and living space including a 26" flatscreen digital TV with freeview and DVD player, CD player and iPod docking station for your favourite holiday playlist.  The downstairs utility area includes cloakroom with toilet and wash hand basin.  Upstairs, the master bedroom offers an indulgent space with the versatility of a zip & lock super king size bed which can also be arranged as a two singles, a 19" flatscreen TV and clock/radio with iPod dock to keep you up to date.  The second beautiful bedroom in soft blues and tan has a double bed.  The main modern bathroom consists of a bath with overhead power shower, heated towel rail, wash hand basin, toilet, a touch of luxury post sand and sea.

Bay Tree Cottage was fantastic. And the location brilliant! We stayed a couple of years ago, which was our first experience of Cornish Gems, and this stay has not disappointed either. We would not hesitate to go on a Cornish Gems holiday again, and recommend you to all our friends and family! 

In the summer days throw open the doors from the conservatory leading to the split level, verdant lawn and patio area which is a private outside space to relax with a good book or switch off while your children safely play.  St Ives is a short drive away or the adorable Saltings Reach branch line train is a 5 minute walk away from Bay Tree Cottage and arrives at Porthminster Beach, St Ives in 8 minutes following some breathtaking coastline along the way.  Bay Tree Cottage is the perfect choice of holiday home for those seeking a quiet and peaceful spot but lies in an ideal location for enjoying the sights of St Ives and surrounding West Cornwall peninsula, from Zennor to Sennen, Lamorna to Porthcurno.

Fantastic cottage, small but very cosy and homely. Recommended


Another lovely week in Lelant. So relaxing. Loved the new bathroom suite! A big garden for the dog is another added bonus. Can't wait to return.
