About the property

Two Beautiful Stylish Cottages

We are lucky enough to be able to offer two very beautiful properties in this very small quiet development at the end of Millpond Avenue in Hayle.

We bought our first, The Hideaway which is a three bedroom cottage with courtyard and parking for two cars.

Our second property is Mellanear Cottage which is two bedroom, property with an enclosed outdoor space and parking for one car.

They are both very close to each other and are perfect for families or friends who want to come away together but want separate properties.

With the two properties we can accommodate twelve people with three allocated parking spaces, and both properties have outside space.

The cottages are furnished to a very high standard, they both have high quality high gloss kitchens with marble worktops. They both have 50inch Smart TV's with NOW tv and both have Cambridge Bluetooth Audio systems. They have lovely bathrooms with power showers.

At both cottages we provide a welcome pack and we provide linen and towels. We also have a fantastic housekeeper who is on hand to answer any questions.

Both cottages are available for short breaks with a minimum stay of three nights. During the school holidays we only take weekly bookings.

Both Cottages are different but equally beautiful and we have tried our best to make them home from home!

They are in a fantastic location for exploring, West Cornwall with its miles of stunning sandy beaches.

Millpond Avenue where the cottages are situated is a very picturesque road with a large pond with lots of ducks and swans, there are some lovely walks right from the front door which are perfect if you have a dog.

From the cottages you can easily walk into the centre of Hayle, this takes 5minutes, There is a pub at the end of the road The Salt which does fantastic food.The train station is a ten minute walk you can get the train, into St Ives. The train journey is absolutely stunning following the coast road into St Ives.

The cottages are perfect to cycle from as it is all on the flat, you can cycle to the many beaches, the outside Lido, or take the many cycle routes, a favourite of ours is cycling to the Quay House pub for a spot of lunch looking out at the Estuary.

If you don't take your bikes their is a great cycle shop in Hayle where you can hire bikes.

The cottages are so handy for the shops Asda, the best Fish and Chip shop, an Italian restaurant and the Salt which is a bar and restaurant which serves great food has a fantastic atmosphere and has live music. Its also a great stop for breakfast.

The locality of the cottages is really amazing and makes it so easy to explore Cornwall. Please read our reviews from guests who have stayed to give you an idea of what you can expect.

We are happy to accept one dog at both properties.

About Sarah Andrews

We are a family that have been lucky enough to holiday extensively in Cornwall. As a child we always took our holidays in St Ives, and this is an area I love dearly. As I have had my own family we have ventured out of St Ives more, particularly as we have a much loved dog Charlie and we love taking him on the beach. We live in Bristol and try to get to Cornwall as much as we can as both of my daughters love the sea, both in summer and winter! We really feel passionate about this area so please feel free to contact me with any questions and I will be only to glad to help.

Sarah Andrews purchased this bungalow in 2016

Why Sarah Andrews chose Hayle

We have loved owning The Hideaway we have had lots of fun there and we have really enjoyed providing a holiday home that our guests have come and enjoyed.

We love the location as it’s quiet and relaxing it feels like a bit of a sanctuary away from things, and its so comfy and cosy! What we love is how easy it is to access lots of different places really easily.

We love being outdoors and the area offers us lots of things to do from walking, biking, surfing, it really is a great spot for us as a family! There is so much to do and its great all through the year.

We love walking to the staion and catching the train to St Ives. Its a beautiful trip along the coast.

We love walking on the beach at Hayle along the Towans which is just such a huge expanse of beach with kite surfers, horseriders and surf schools all enjoying the beach! The crabbing off the sea wall is amazing you cant fail to catch lots of crabs!

We love getting fish and chips in Hayle they are amazing and while we wait we pop to the Salt on the opposite corner which is a really lovely bar that serves fantastic food, and has live music, well worth a pop in.

We have also done something new this summer Kayaking on the Helston River which was great fun with Koru Kayaking highly recommend it!

The cottages are great all year round we cant wait to walk the dog on the deserted beaches in the winter, then take the kids for hot chocolate!

What makes this bungalow unique

The cottages are in a really lovely quiet secluded spot, that means you really get to relax.

Having parking means coming and going is very easy, and we can walk across to the fabulous sand dunes which is a real treat.

We are also only a 15min drive from St Ives, although we love getting the train or the bus as its so quick and easy and we don't have to worry about parking! We do lots of cycling as there are lots of cycle paths and its very safe and all on the flat. The kids also love the outside lido which is great for a morning swim! The area has so much going for it whether you are a walker, a surfer, a bird watcher, a cyclist, an art enthusiast there really is so much to see and do, and then come back to one of our beautiful cottages to relax.

Great location, good transport links and very easy to get about but tucked away in a lovely quiet street. Very well equipped cottage/bungalow. Lovely modern decor with high spec tv/internet etc which made the children happy! Godrevy beach and Mutton cove on the doorstep which is a must if you are in the area, Kynance cove and St Michaels mount just a short drive away and well worth a visit. This has to be the best property we have stayed in since using Owners Direct by a country mile. Great communication with owner and an affordable price! The added extras on arrival were a lovely touch too. Thank you.

A wonderfully comfortable holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Hideaway is an extremely comfortable cottage, furnished to a high standard. It has everything you need for a very cosy break. At times over the Christmas week, the weather was very cold and windy, but the cottage was always very warm, and the underfloor heating in the bathrooms was especially welcomed. The beds are very comfortable, and our grown up children especially enjoyed the large TV and sound system! The kitchen provided everything I needed to make Christmas lunch. The cottage is very well furnished and for warmer weather, has a beautiful private courtyard for eating out. It really is a home from home. We highly recommend it- you will not be disappointed.

Modern, completely renovated and nicely located flat, dog friendly and very kind owner

  • 5 of 5

We can clearly recommend this flat after saying there for 2 weeks in Nov. 2017. The flat es perfectly equipped, especially the technical standard is very high. It easily accommodates 4 people, for 5-6 the living area is a little small. Everything was very clean and in an excellent state. A dedicated parking space is available. The patio is small but good for breakfast outside and to dry wet stuff.

We especially enjoyed the great location, close to the center of Hayle with easy access to supermarkets, bakery and restaurants within walking distance. The closest beach is 5-7 min by car and a 25 min walk away. Close to the flat, you find a small park and other options for a short walk with the dog.

Sarah, the owner, is very friendly and communication was fast, easy and uncomplicated. We would love to come back and can absolutely recommend this property.

Well-located, cosy holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The property more than lived up to our expectations. Clean, well equipped and comfortable for our stay.

The location in Hayle is great for exploring the south of Cornwall (St Ives, Marazion, Penzance) and we enjoyed walking over to the beach.

I would strongly recommend this property!

Nearest Beach
0.25 Miles
15minute walk away
Car: not necessary

This is an incredible part of Cornwall with lots to see and do for all ages. Right on Millpond Avenue where the cottage is located there is a lovely walk, the Millpond Trail where its possible to see lots of wildlife including a colony of turtles. Very close to the cottage are fantastic beaches, Hayle, Towans Beach and Godrevy Head. The beaches really are spectacular with large sand dunes and huge expanses of beautiful clean sand, I love walking our Tibetan Terrier Charlie here. There are lots of activities such as surfing and kite surfing, there are a couple of surf schools if you fancy riding the waves! You can park at the National Trust Carpark and take a short walk to Mutton Cove where you may be lucky enough to see the seals. You can hire bikes in Hayle and there are lots of cycle routes that are great for familys. The George V Memorial walk is a great one as its a lovely flat walk alongside the estuary and on Sundays the road is closed so its really safe for young children. There is also the outdoor pool right alongside the walk so you could have a lovely dip when you finish the walk. Theres lots of other activities from golf, to karting and there is the very popular Paradise Park which is excellent for families. There are lots of lovely pubs and restaurants to chose form and a pasty from Philps is a must!

This is a great base to visit other areas such as St Ives, Marazion, Penzance, Falmouth and many more. The parking at the cottage is very easy so coming and going isn't a problem.

This is a great spot to visit at all times of the year as the scenery and wildlife are everchanging!

The location of the cottage is very quiet and relaxing, we love it!
