Can we come back yet?

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I travelled down from Norfolk to stay at the Hayloft in mid-August and we still can't believe our luck at having found such a magical place to stay. From the books to the artwork, the sea views to the cliff walks, the Hayloft is a real treasure trove.

The cottage had more than we could possibly need for a four night stay. We loved its character and decoration - there was so much to discover inside the house you could almost forget about everything outdoors!

As other reviewers have said, Chris and Sara were super hosts, directing us to the cottage by phone when we stopped trusting the Sat-Nav (even though it was right!) and greeting us with Cornish saffron buns. They didn't interfere with our stay and we were pleased when Chris came to check in on us midweek to see how we were getting on - we felt very looked after.

During our stay we walked a bit of the lovely Coast Path which you can find just a short walk from the cottage; we visited the local villages including Morvah and Zennor, as well as St Ives and the Eden Project, which is definitely worth the hour's drive. The real gem of the stay was discovering Portheras Cove; this stunning beach is perhaps a 15 minute drive (free parking) and then a lovely walk of about a mile, but it is 100% worth it - so much so that we went twice. (Pro tip: go later! We had it all to ourselves for a few hours on the Thursday evening which was incredibly special.)

We haven't stopped gushing about our trip and I've still hundreds of photographs left to edit. For some additional details and pictures of the Hayloft and the parts of the local area we discovered in our short time, you might want to look at my blog by googling 'Lightly We Go Cornwall', which should bring up my posts about our stay!

Thanks so much Chris & Sara for a really special trip away - completely worth the extremely long drive!

super cosy cottage at the end of the world

  • 5 of 5

The hayloft is lovingly furnished, a combination of clean, modern facilities and rustic atmosphere, with comfy rooms and a luxurious kitchen. We felt very well taken care of by Chris who made sure the wood stove was working when a cold night was impending and I can wholeheartedly recommend staying at Chris' and Sara's. I would definitely choose it for another stay in Cornwall in the future.

Beautiful Cornish cottage with authentic features and sea view

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I booked to stay here for four nights in August. We loved it so much we will definitely return as everything about the experience exceeded our expectations. Where to begin? The cottage is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and has a feeling of being sensitively and tastefully renovated. It has a lovely cosy feel, gorgeous private garden and lovely sea view from the bedroom. All the rooms are filled with wonderful artworks from local artists, a seriously well equipped kitchen, cosy lounge with woodburner and lots of amazing books to dip into, lovely upstairs lounge and an extremely comfortable bed. Very quiet and peaceful, a great get away.

Chris and Sara are excellent hosts who make sure that you have everything you need. They have lots of information about the local area and maps and books to borrow. Chris told us about Portheras beach a stone's throw away and we had a glorious day there. The walks along the Coastal Path (which is just across the fields), are totally fantastic. The atmosphere of the area is unspoilt, a total hidden part of a very stunning area. There is very easy access by road to St.Ives and to Penzance but we spent most of our time here or south along the coast enjoying the beaches. We also visited the Minack Theatre for a performance which was stunning and truly a night to remember.

We loved the kitchen as it was a home from home with everything provided. Also having a washing machine and heated rack for drying clothes was very useful. Chris and Sara have thought of every detail including milk and Cornish buns for when you arrive!

I would most definitely recommend a stay here if you enjoy the outdoors and love coming back to a cosy, Cornish cottage at the end of a long day walking, swimming (with a wetsuit on )! and just looking at the most wonderful blanket of stars you could ever see (in the garden), before the best night's sleep you will ever have.

Thank you Chris and Sara for a truly memorable stay.

Lovely, quiet and well equipped cottage in one of the the most beautiful parts of Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Hayloft from 23rd to 29th of June 2016. The Hayloft is in a remote and quiet corner of Cornwall, but ideal to visit the rough coast around Land's End, the “Poldark scenery”, busy St. Ives, the long beaches and hidden coves and so much more. Cornwall at its best, one might say....

The Hayloft is ideal for two people and offers a lot of space and all the necessary facilities. The sitting area in the lounge is quite small, but there is a second sitting area in the bedroom. Plus, of course, a secluded garden area where (weather permitting ;-)) you can have al fresco dinners or BBQs.

We enjoyed Hayloft very much, its friendly owners and the reasonable price. Five stars altogether!

A lovely homely cottage in the very heart of Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

A perfect stone classic Cornish cottage retreat for two. True, it is somewhat remote, found among the narrow lanes that wind through the landscape between St Just and St Ives, just a short walk from the Cornish coast. But what a delightful base for an adventurous break! In the car, nowhere is far away, and we took ourselves to different spots to start and end our walks along the rugged and spectacular coastal paths, from St Ives, from where we saw dolphins below the coastguard lookout,, through the peaceful rural pathways, from St Just along the most magical coastal landscape you will see anywhere, down to Lands End easily the best way to view this evocative landmark, around the Lizard with its towering granite cliffs, sweeping golden beaches, frequented by surfers...I could go on! We sat on stone stone seats for the three hour operatic performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the amazing world-renowned Mintack Theatre, carved out of the rock, with a placid, moon dappled sea as the backdrop. Our longest trip was to the Eden Project at St Austell, well worth the long drive. The Hay Loft was a perfect, well supplied, characterful, oasis of calm to return to each day. Owners Chris and Sara are wonderful and courteous hosts. How could you not love this place!

Location

From the Owner

The Hay Loft sits in one of the most beautiful parts of South West Cornwall, next to beautiful moorland and sea cliffs where I have spent hours sitting and watching birds and seals swim in the water below. The view from the upstairs window shows the S shaped bend in the road that leads along a stunning scenic drive to St Ives. Here, there is no light pollution so at night you can see all the stars. The feel of the place is timeless with ancient granite outcrops, full of wildlife and native plants yet there are also nearby small villages and towns to explore, such as Pendeen, St Just, Penzance & St Ives where you can find supermarkets & clothes and gift shops, cafes and art galleries

Minack Theatre is a gorgeous open air rock amphitheatre near the beautiful Porthcurno beach, with a museum and a cafe on site. Mousehole is a small but prettty old fishing port to walk around with narrow streets and restaurants and craft & art galleries famous for it's illuminations at Christmas. St Ives is a lovely old town famous for it's art scene since the 1950's with art galleries, eateries , and clothing shops surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches offering good bathing and boat trips, also for art lovers there is the Tate Gallery and the Barbara Hepworth museum. Ancient monuments such as Men - an - Tol ( the holed stone), Lanyon Quoit, Nine maidens, the Merry Maidens, Carn Euny and Chysauster are all worth a visit as well as the atmospheric Carn Galver, a high moorland rock outcrop overlooking the sea. Lots of quaint local churches such as Zennor and Sancreed are worth a look and most of the local pubs hold pub quizzes on week nights which are good fun

Facilities

From the Owner

The first thing I loved about the Hay Loft was the entrance which is a big granite lintel that you pass underneath to enter the cottage it reminded me of an old cornish fogou or cave I love the cottage because it is very comfortable to be in, especially with the wood burner blazing in the evening. It is so nice to just sit and watch television or read a book ( there are lots of books to look at ) or to sit outside and look at the dramatic moorland view up to the tin mine chimney at Garden Mine Cottage on the hill opposite... it's a truly relaxing sanctuary with lots of lovely decorative quirks that make it a special place
