Holiday Cottage in Hayle

Fraddam is a great location a few miles from Hayle and St Ives with glorious beaches in abundance, plenty of quaint pubs and restaurants and some truly amazing walks. To the south lies Mounts Bay and the iconic St Michaels Mount which is one end of an ancient Pilgrims Route which travels across the county to Hayle, Fraddam is the midpoint of this trek and hence is a superb base to explore both coasts.

St Ives, once a busy fishing village, now relies on tourism as its main industry. Turner came and painted a landscape in 1811 and art has played a part in St Ives history ever since. More recently Barbara Hepworth and the Tate Gallery have put St Ives on the modern map. The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden is an amazing place to visit, and well worth it even if you're not a budding artist. Trewyn Studios where she lived and worked from 1939 until her tragic death in 1975 has been turned into a fantastic museum, depicting many of her favourite sculptures in the sub tropical garden, is now managed by the Tate. The Tate Gallery St Ives was built in 1993 on the former gas works site displaying various paintings, sculptures and ceramics.?
To the south lies Mounts Bay which is, of course, dominated by St Michael's Mount, the jewel in Cornwall's crown. St Michael's Mount is accessed by a causeway, once walked by pilgrims in honour of the alleged appearance of Saint Michael, which is revealed at low tide. At other times visitors are ferried from Marazion to the Mount in small boats.
The beautiful town of Marazion, set on the shores of Mount's Bay, has for long been a hot favourite for tourism in West Cornwall. Its clean, sandy beaches, with stunning views towards the Lizard Peninsula and Land's End, have established Marazion as the most wonderful destination for beach holidays in Cornwall with long sandy beaches providing a safe seaside environment for swimming and other watersports including windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing. A number of major sporting events in these fields are held in the bay.
Nearby Penzance, meaning 'holy headland' is the last major town before Lands End. The market town was once made famous as the birthplace of Sir Humphry Davy, now services the Isles of Scilly by land and sea. The streets of Penzance hold many historic buildings dating from the 17th century; it is well worth a walk around. The Turk's Head pub on Chapel Street reputed to date from 1233 is the oldest pub in the town, steeped in smuggling and pirate history. A few minutes down the road is Newlyn, home to one of the largest fishing fleets with over 40 acres of harbour as well as more recently attracting many great artists and exhibitions.
