Just a few minutes’ drive from Hayle’s long sandy beaches and only six miles from St Ives and its galleries, shops and restaurants, Count House Cottage also lies within easy reach of the south coast.
Ideally located for exploring the area, this comfortable cottage adjoins the owners’ home and is blessed with a sunny, south-facing enclosed rear garden which is sheltered by a high stone wall to the front and overlooks the owners’ lawns.
Once inside, the cosy sitting/dining-room leads (up two steps) to a little sun-room and the very well-equipped kitchen. The bathroom is also downstairs, and up the steep, narrow staircase is the spacious bedroom, which has lovely countryside views. This cottage is full of charm and character inside with low doorways and ceilings and a lovely old (ornamental) Cornish fireplace.
Hayle has many cafes, restaurants, galleries and shops (three dedicated to the famous Cornish pasty!). Hayle also boasts three miles of golden sands so you are never far from a sandy beach to walk along, and sea to paddle in. This cute little cottage is absolutely perfect for a couple wanting to explore this gorgeous part of west Cornwall.
