Holiday Cottage in Hayle
Sleeps 2 - Bedrooms 1 - From £301
Praze An Beeble 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. It is located about 5 miles inland from the south coast and its beautiful beaches, including the sandy bay at Praa Sands, which has ample parking, an adjacent bar, and lifeguard cover during the season. The nearby Lizard peninsula's coastal walks are truly outstanding. It takes in mainland Britain's most southerly point with its lighthouse and RSPB observatory, numerous quaint fishing harbours, traditional pubs, and excellent cream teas. St Michael’s Mount is a must, and charming Porthleven and Penzance are a pleasant drive along the coastal road. The north coast is also easily accessible with a wealth of inviting spots; St Ives and its bustling harbour and beaches, Gwithian beach, Godrevy lighthouse, the magnificent Hayle Towans beach and the Botallick tin mines. The traditional town of Helston, home of famous Flora Day, is just a few minutes drive away, giving access to all amenities, including hypermarkets.

Hayle is dominated by the spectacular 3 miles of golden sands that stretch north towards Gwithian Towans and Godrevy Lighthouse. A quite stunning beach that offers opportunities for sunbathing and surfing. When the wind is blowing, watch out for the windsurfers, particularly in the waves at the northern end of the beach. This is one of the best windsurfing spots in the country. In the town of Hayle, Paradise Park is always popular with both adults and kids with their fantastic collection of rare birds and animals. There is also a good indoor play area for the kids if the weather gets bad!
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.

Perfect for CouplesReviewed on 30/09/2021
We had a lovely stay at The Brooks in September. Sylvia had given us detailed directions how to get there, and even messaged to say the cottage was available earlier than originally planned. It was spotless on arrival, and the owners had left us milk, scones, jam and cream (which was much appreciated after a 6 hour journey!). The location was great, but you do need a car ideally to get around. It was perfect for exploring West Cornwall. We would definitely stay here again.

A lovely relaxing breakReviewed on 09/09/2021
We had a lovely break at The Brooks. Sylvia and Graham could not have been better hosts. The annex was lovely, homely and cosy with a great outdoor space and a lake. A great location to enjoy a quiet break with some great beaches and walks within a short drive. A great location to also explore what South Cornwall has to offer. Highly recommended!
