    “A lovely little cottage”
    This is a lovely cottage situated in Hayle which is a good base to start each day exploring Cornwall. We had a really warm welcome when we arrived at this extremely clean cottage as, waiting for us was milk, coffee, tea, cornish biscuits and flowers. There were also plenty of toiletries. All facilities at this cottage are of a high standard with a fantastic (very large) bath and extremely comfortable beds - very important to us.

    This is a lovely cottage situated in Hayle which is a good base to start each day exploring Cornwall. We had a really warm welcome when we arrived at this extremely clean cottage as, waiting for us was milk, coffee, tea, cornish biscuits and flowers. There were also plenty of toiletries. All facilities at this cottage are of a high standard with a fantastic (very large) bath and extremely comfortable beds - very important to us. The cottage is advertised for 4 people as it has 2 small double bedrooms but 4 people staying in it may be a little too kosy! We can't fault the cottage itself but a couple of points to be aware of when considering staying here. It is situated on a very busy road. Throughout the night, large noisy tractors with very bright orange flashing lights went up and down it making sleep a little difficult so , if there only 2 people staying, the second bedroom at the back is a better choice as it is quieter. Also being advertised as having parking for 2 cars is stretching the truth somewhat. We have a normal medium sized car. If we'd parked on the drive, there was no room either side to open the doors. By driving to the top of the drive, we could get out the car but there wasn't enough room to turn the car round and certainly not enough room for another car to park. Having driven up the drive we then had to reverse off it onto the busy road, turn the car round on the road and then reverse it up the drive to make it easier to get out and this is what we had to do every day. If anyone turns up in a large car - or 2 couples come in a car each - they are going to be sadly disappointed as not only will they not be able to park on the drive but they won't be able to park on the road either due to double yellow lines all the way down the road. However, whilst this meant we couldn't give the cottage a full 5 stars, it was still a lovely kosy place to stay which we enjoyed

The property

Traditional character and contemporary comfort makes Kosy Kot a holiday haven to return to!

This delightful cottage is surprisingly spacious, positioned in the town of Hayle, less than two miles from the 3 mile stretch of golden sand between Hayle and Godrevy.

A comfortable and elegant sitting room has beams and a wood burner, cosy on cooler days, so curl up or kick back on a classic sofa with a book.

The kitchen is contemporary with all the appliances, plus a dining table.

The ground floor shower room is practical after a sandy-toed adventure.

The bedrooms have a coast-meets-country vibe, with white and blue hues and the beautiful bathroom has a relaxed elegance with roll top bath for bathing bliss.

The rear garden is tiered with a shingled patio for sunshine snacks and steps up for siestas and play, with an additional bijou table for sunset finales.

Hayle has an eclectic mix of restaurants, traditional inns and supermarkets within a short walk.

Children will enjoy Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary with soft play arena.

Sit aside the dinky quay with an ice cream or cappuccino, take a fishing trip, seal safari excursion or join the surf school for white water fun.

Cornwall's largest dunes run along this coastline, the beach reaches round from Hayle River to Godrevy lighthouse and Gwithian Beach, ideal for swimming, rock-pooling and extreme sports.

Bring hiking boots and explore the cliffs and country footpaths of this World Heritage Site.

About the location

HAYLE

St Ives 5 miles; Penzance 7.5 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. 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. 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 cafes 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. Within easy reach of Hayle is the Minack Theatre (35 mins), Falmouth Maritime Museum (40 mins), Eden Project (40 mins), St. Michael’s Mount (15 mins) and many other fantastic tourist attractions for dry or wet days.
