As perfect for a family of six as a couples bolthole, Eider Cottage enjoys a wonderful location at Saltings Reach near St Ives.  Whether an afternoon to wile away the hours by the fire or enjoying the sun trap patio for lazy mornings, Eider Cottage truly is a wonderful, modern coastal retreat to enjoy your holiday in Cornwall.  The property is very spacious and offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms plus a separate ground floor WC.  With an enviable choice of beaches, attractions and restaurants just a stones throw away and allocated parking, its location is set to impress.

The Property

Thoughtful design and fresh, inspired decor await.  A spacious hallway and open plan dining room complete with polished white dining table and rattan chairs offers a stylish space to enjoy a home cooked supper or family breakfast.  The open plan dining room leads into the contemporary kitchen, fully kitted out keeping even the most discerning chefs happy.  A smaller cafe style table is great for children to dine early or enjoy some quiet creative time.  The sitting room is wonderfully comfortable and decked out in soft mossy greens, whites and more striking blacks.  This vibrant room is a lovely space to relax or socialise.  The central staircase leads you to a tempting collection of bedrooms.  Choose from the large indulgent king bedded room (with en-suite), a luxurious double or pretty twin.  Each room has a unique feel from the characterful artwork to the vibrant soft furnishings.  Sink under quality linens and enjoy a restful night in this peaceful home.

As always the high calibre of property/features and very helpful customer service from your representatives has been very welcome and we have enjoyed every minute of our holiday. Thank you and we hope to stay with you again very soon.

French doors lead from the sitting room and spill out onto the patio garden - enjoy the Cornish sunshine from morning till late. Eider Cottage is located just one mile from Porthkidney, a picturesque beach adjoining the Hayle Estuary which is dog friendly all year round.  Breathtaking views can be enjoyed from this beach to St Ives Bay right across to Godrevy Lighthouse and beyond.  There is a lovely walk from the property along The Saltings which leads you to the beach and the West Cornwall Golf Course.  The charming branch line train is only 5 minutes walk away and arrives in St Ives in 8 minutes following the breathtaking coastline.  St Ives offers a cosmopolitan approach to coastal living with uber-smart cafes, delicious restaurants and boutique shops.
