  • "Very well stocked kitchen, the cottage was quiet and peaceful with everything we needed."

    Owner was very responsive if we had questions and gave helpful directions to find it. Would absolutely stay again. Close to all the places we wanted to visit.

  • "The cottage was superb."

    Cosy, comfortable, well proportioned, exceptionally clean and had EVERYTHING you need for daily living. Absolutely loved it. There is a long drive down to the cottage, which was lovely to walk each day with the dog. The area is surrounded by daffodil fields, just beautiful. Central to all other sights in Cornwall, a good base to be at. I can't praise Little Riviera enough. The owners are lovely too, they are more than happy to stop and talk to you. Definitely be back again

Set within spacious grounds and featuring a traditional interior with character features, Little Riviere is a wonderful choice for a family escape to this part of Cornwall.

Upon arrival you approach the property via a long farm track leading to the off-road parking area.

Step inside and make yourself at home in the lounge, where you can slump on the sofas under the apex ceilings and choose a film to watch on the Smart TV.

Cross over to the kitchen/diner where you can conjure up a feast using the integrated appliances before settling at the dining table and toasting to a much-needed escape.

Spend the rest of the evening within the garden, with lots of space for children to explore, along with patio areas with furniture and a barbecue for those summer evenings.

About the location


St Ives 6.3 miles; Penzance 7.4 miles.

Hayle is in the far-flung south western corner of Cornwall and sits on an important RSPB wildlife estuary flowing out to the beautiful St Ives Bay, where visitors can enjoy three miles of golden sandy beaches, walks, history and wildlife. Hayle has plenty of activities out of the water too; Paradise Park is a wildlife park, home to some spectacular parrots, otters, and red pandas. Hayle has a range of shops, restaurants and bars scattered around the estuary and harbour area. There are skittles and karting for the family, and for golfers, one of the best links golf courses in Cornwall is at Lelant, a mile out of Hayle. But the jewel of Hayle is the three miles of golden sandy beach, with fantastic surfing at Gwithian where there is a surf shop, lessons and hire of equipment. For the less energetic there are beach cafés where you can take in the views and watch the children play. As Hayle is centrally located you can easily access many other places by either public transport (there is a train station at Hayle) or driving. St. Ives is a short drive away where you can wander through the narrow streets, visit the art galleries, or admire the colourful sub-tropical gardens. St Ives harbour has its own small fishing fleet and there are plentiful boat trips skippered by locals keen to showcase the best that Cornwall has to offer, whether it be seal watching at Seal Island, a couple of hours' mackerel fishing or a relaxing trip to Godrevy Lighthouse. Within easy reach of Hayle is the Minack Theatre, Falmouth Maritime Museum, Eden Project, St. Michael’s Mount and many other fantastic tourist attractions for dry or wet days.
