Peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

I picked Ridgecote as the photos seemed to show that it was close to the beach and not too close to other chalets so we had enough privacy to sit outside and quietly read or just enjoy the view. The chalet itself is small but there was enough space for us to relax comfortably when not sitting outside and all the facilities, kitchen, bathroom etc were excellent. Gwithian beach is beautiful and there is something along the sands for everyone, we particularly enjoyed the food at the Godrevy Beach Cafe. We could've just spent the whole week on the Towans, on the beach, walking the along the coastal paths but it is a good base for exploring the Cornish coast with St.Ives, Lands End and the Eden Project near by.

Lovely property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was perfect for our use. Clean and tidy, enough space (just) for 3 adults and 2 children. Close to the sea and parking. Lovely sunsets and beautiful views. Chalet well equipped and in very good decorative order.

Fantastic location for relaxing and enjoying the sea. Lots of walking along the coastal path and the beach. Children enjoyed the sea with the beach having a gradual slope, making it safer for them to use. Lucky to have good weather which allowed us to be outside every day. Walked to St. Ives from Lelant Saltings , which is a very pretty. Crab fishing from the harbour wall in Hayle. What more could we ask for?
