Only a mile from the seemingly endless golden sands skirting St Ives Bay, pretty little Saffron Cottage lies just a few yards from the scenic Hayle river estuary, a birdwatchers' paradise and is perfect for a car-free and care-free holiday. The station just up the hill is ideal for getting here; also for trips to St Ives, Penzance or Truro. Hayle's many cafes, restaurants, galleries and shops (three dedicated to the famous Cornish pasty!) and even the seasonal lido are all only a stroll away. The cottage is full of charm and character inside with low doorways and ceilings, typically steep, open-sided stairs, and a lovely old (ornamental) Cornish range, alongside modern equipment including an iPod dock.
Upstairs are the two unexpectedly spacious bedrooms; downstairs are the cosy sitting-room, the small but well-equipped kitchen/dining-room, and the bathroom – which includes a separate shower cubicle (as well as a bath) with a fabulous drench-head shower. Outside, a tiny front courtyard garden is bathed in sunshine in the evening. Perfect for a couple or small family, this delightful little gem is only strides away from just about anything you might need!
