The Saltings offers a wonderful base for your holiday
Saltings View Cottage is an exceptionally well presented, 5 Star Gold, newly built two bedroom granite cottage that cleverly brings a modern influence to the traditional style Cornish cottages of yesteryear. Saltings View Cottage is situated in the prime location of Saltings Reach on the outskirts of St Ives.
A comfortable ambiance awaits. The pretty living space with garden views is a relaxing room for holiday life, the pebble effect elective stove sets the scene for out of season stays or open up the patio doors for that inside out feel. From the fully fitted kitchen and dining room to the welcoming bedrooms with Feather and Black beds, each space has been thoughtfully styled.
A private patio with outdoor seating is a real suntrap in the summer and a great place for children and dogs alike to play and spread out. St Ives is a short drive away, or the Saltings Reach branch line train is a 5 minute walk from the cottage. You arrive at the stunning Porthminster Beach, St. Ives in just 8 minutes and sample some breathtaking coastline along the way. Choose to bring your dog with you this year, Saltings View Cottage welcomes well behaved dogs and the closest beach, Porthkidney is dog friendly all year round. Porthkidney beach is just a short 20 minute walk and there is a pretty walk along the Saltings to get to it. From the beach you can pick up the South West Coast Path and walk to Carbis Bay and St. Ives.

Great cottage. Everything was perfect!
The house was perfectly adequate, clean and comfortable. We had a good week and weather was kind to us.
This was our 3rd stay at the property and yet again we had an excellent stay and will hopefully be back at the end of the year.
The property was fantastic and was really home from home. We loved out time there and found the house to be extremely clean, well maintained, warm and cosy. It was really nice to have a Christmas tree when we walked in and made us feel really festive. I would completely recommend the property as it was truly lovely.
Thank you for another lovely Christmas break, this year in Saltings View Cottage. The house itself and the customer service we received whilst booking/queries, etc, was faultless. We always recommend Cornish Gems and hope to be back again soon!
As on previous occasions, excellent service from the office team.
Excellent service from Cornish Gems. The property itself was lovely and in a good location. We're hoping to go back next year.
Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days, the property was excellent, the location was just right for our needs, walking on the beaches.
The house was lovely and we had a great holiday. We are continued to be very pleased with the quality of your houses - and will be back in Aug ;0)
Very impressed with the equipment available in the cottage, everything had been thought of. Lovely situation.
Once again an amazing holiday in Cornwall and George (our dog) had an awesome time as usual on Porthkidney beach in and out the water and a trip on the train to St Ives... We can't wait to come back :)
We really enjoyed our stay in a very comfortable well maintained house.
The property was clean and well presented, a lovely base for a lovely holiday.
Fantastic customer service received from you - compared to your competitors, one of which we have used for over 20 years, your service is far superior.
We had a lovely holiday at Saltings View Cottage - thank you very much. We hope to return.
A very cosy, comfortable and well equipped cottage. The location was great, a short walk to the train station, hop on a train and 10 minutes later we arrived in St Ives - Hassle free! We will definitely return.
Every member of our family was very happy about the cottage and my five-year old granddaughter enjoyed playing in the "bedroom of the princess". I enjoyed the quiet location of the cottage and also its vicinity to the "carting place", which my sons enjoyed and went there three times. We did not mind having to take the train to St Ives, as the ride is panoramic and short.
Another great stay with Cornish Gems.
