Hayle is a wonderful harbour town on the north coast of Cornwall where boats chug in and out of the harbour for fishing, pleasure cruising and sailing. There is a sweep of golden sandy beach nearby and some wild sand dunes. The beaches along the stretch of St Ives Bay are presided over by the famous Godrevy lighthouse.

Walking the South West Coast Path or nearby Mineral Tramway Trails is a walker’s dream with far reaching coastal views and cosy pubs along the way. Our range of Hayle holiday cottages make the perfect place to rest after a day of fresh Cornish air and a traditional Cornish Pasty by the sea.
