Trevethoe Farm Cottages are located on our 300 acre family farm at Lelant which is a village between Hayle and Carbis Bay.

Within 20 minutes’ walking distance you can reach our local pubs and cafes – The Watermill Inn, Quay Inn, Birdies Bistro, Wyevale Garden Centre, The Old Forge, La Casita and the Badger Inn.

St Erth Park and Ride is only a short distance away where you can take the train along the renowned ride along the coast to St Ives, taking the stress of parking out of your visit to our wonderfully vibrant and busy town. From St Erth you can also travel by train to Penzance or Truro. There is also a bus stop close by.

Being only a few minutes’ drive from the main A30, we are perfectly located to explore all that West Cornwall has to offer – visit St Michael’s Mount, explore our fantastic stretch of the South West Coastpath, stride out across the Penwith Moors to take in the wild landscapes and see firsthand the mining history in the engine houses and chimneys that dot the countryside and coastline or visit the numerous visitor attractions and gardens.

St Ives

We are 3 miles from the quaint town of St Ives with its cobbled streets, award-winning restaurants, wonderful shops and art galleries including the Tate.

St Ives has a number of beaches to choose from – Porthminster, Porthgwidden and Porthmeor – as well as the iconic harbour.  Have a go at SUP, surfing or kayaking.

Our town also boasts some wonderful independent shops and galleries – don’t forget to support local businesses when you shop for gifts, food or clothing!

Carbis Bay

In between Lelant and St Ives is Carbis Bay with its shop, supermarket, train station and beach.  Carbis Bay beach is a lovely spot for swimming, soaking up the sun and there are hire facilities for SUP and kayaking.

Evening at Carbis Bay


A small village just off the A30, Lelant has pubs, a garden centre and cafes.  But what is often not realised is that it also has the most wonderful beach.  There are no facilities there, but it is a vast stretch of sand on low tide with views across to Hayle’s 3 miles of golden sands and Godrevy Lighthouse.  A great place for a walk or picnic and has lifeguard cover during the summer.  It is often quiet, so a nice beach to escape the crowds of St Ives!

Lelant Beach (Porthkidney)


Hayle is a town close by which offers a number of independent shops, supermarkets as well as places to eat out and of course the beautiful 3 miles of Golden sands which stretch from the estuary right around towards Godrevy Lighthouse.


If you like walking, you will be spoilt for choice!  We have a number of walks printed off and available in the cottages, but if you want to plan ahead there’s a great website iwalkcornwall who also have an amazing App which has a wide range of options for all abilities to help you discover the true beauty of Cornwall.

We often go out walking and share photos of where we’ve been on our Facebook page and Instagram account  Pop over and like/follow us to keep up to date!
