The Property

Step inside this stylish pad, tiled throughout in contemporary slate making this property ideal for children and dogs to come and go.  Each room has been thoughtfully furnished and decorated to create individual spaces in which to relax.  Cornish inspired artwork sets the scene alongside the cool blues and tans of the living areas whilst warmer reds and soft greens deck the indulgent bedrooms.  The open plan kitchen/dining room can be dressed up for celebratory dinners or keep it casual for holiday living.

The house was absolutely brilliant. Everything we needed, all beautifully presented and incredibly clean and really felt like our home for the week. As a family of three generations we were all well catered for and very comfortable throughout the house.

A small patio to the rear catches the sun, just right for a pre-dinner drink and a great area for resident dogs to stretch their legs.  This lovely holiday cottage is close to the Hayle Estuary, a well renowned RSPB nature reserve and offers great accessibility to the plethora of golden sandy beaches and attractions that West Cornwall has to offer.  For walkers we are on the South West Coastal Path which can be followed from the cottage along the Saltings, across the golf course and via sand dunes and cliffs to Carbis Bay and St Ives.  The popular West Cornwall Golf Club, Cornwall's oldest, with its testing links layout and stunning views of St Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse, is only a short drive away.  There are many award winning golden beaches that St Ives and the West Cornwall Peninsula has to offer within easy reach Lelant's Porthkidney allowing access for dogs all year onto its mile long beach.  Pintail Cottage is our highly recommended choice for enjoying short breaks through to summer holidays.  Situated in Lelant just off the A30 and within 10 minutes of St Ives, Penzance, St Michaels Mount and Hayle, the cottage is well placed for exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Thank you Cornish Gems for a wonderful holiday, Pintail Cottage was yet again like home from home we have 2 dogs and it is so good that we can bring them to such a lovely house

David Rowlands

We had a fantastic holiday. The booking process was amazing especially as it was a next day booking. The staff were very helpful in meeting our requirements. The standard of the property was superb and excellent value for money. The proximity of the property was excellent for visiting West Cornwall.

Maria Skinner

Very good property with plenty of pots & Pans, etc. Very clean and welcoming especially with the Christmas decorations and Christmas tree. Thank you.

John Essex

We love Cornish Gems and always use them to book our Cornish holidays.

Victoria Bryant

The best agency we have ever booked through for customer service, cleanliness and attention to detail.

Melanie Hollier

I have recommended you and the properties we have stayed in to lots of friends and family - my brother and parents have both booked their own holidays as a result. The properties are always to a very high standard and we know we will be staying in a lovely house without having to worry about what to expect. Can't recommend you highly enough.

Samantha Legg

Excellent property in a fantastic location. A real good base for anyone exploring the South West coast.

Steven Paine

Excellent... professional and high quality! Thank you!!!

Linda Hollow

As we explained to the very lovely cleaning staff at the house, we have spent the last 6 years having fantastic holidays in Cornwall and this has topped them all by far. I wouldn't recommend booking your holiday the day before leaving home but as we had to it couldn't have been an easier or less stressful experience than it was with the staff at your office. Throughout numerous calls nothing was too much trouble, everything was done in the most friendly and helpful way and the end result was a feeling of being well looked after, welcomed and spoilt all at once! Every arrangement and communication happened as planned and detailed and was extremely efficient and timely which made the whole process far more relaxing than I had imagined it would be at that late stage. The house was absolutely brilliant. Everything we needed, all beautifully presented and incredibly clean and really felt like our home for the week. The welcome items were thoughtful and lovely and started off our holiday as well as it continued. As a family of three generations we were all well catered for and very comfortable throughout the house. We would be the first to recommend Cornish Gems and are so very pleased to have found your company as I can't imagine us booking elsewhere in future. Thank you for a lovely time, for all your help and for not laughing or putting the phone down when I said our long list of requirements which we needed for the next day! Best wishes, The Swift Family and Granny.
