Enjoy the Best of Cornwall

Local Area

The beach can be found with rock pools teaming with life – small caves waiting to be explored & some of the best surfing in Cornwall. Even at the height of summer the beach is never overcrowded & with patrolling life guards it allows you to relax while the kids have fun.

Beautiful walks along the coastal footpaths can take you as far as your day will allow & with a little luck you may see dolphins & seals.

An idyllic setting nestling in 7 acres of sand dunes. Our self catering chalets sleep 2-6 people and are on a small family run site. All are decorated & furnished to give a relaxing beach side holiday atmosphere.

Guest Reviews

Bucket and Spade was a great chalet to stay in. It was very clean and comfortable with all mod cons which were of a good quality i.e. comfy mattress! and was something different to staying in a cottage. The kids loved their ‘beach hut’ and the outdoor space meant they werent confined and could safely run around. The site was quiet and had great access to the sand dunes and a gorgeous 3 mile stretch of beach with a lovely surf cafe close by. The local area of Hayle was a 5 minute drive away (bit too far to walk) and had 2 large supermarkets and lots of independent retailers. The area was quieter and far nicer to walk round than the larger places such as St Ives which was nice for a day trip but very very crowded. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay and would return in the future.


My partner and I stayed for a week last September. We traveled down from Scotland, as my partner has never visited Cornwall before, and she loved it. We spoke to Michelle a few times, she was very helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. The chalets were very clean and tidy, the site was nice and quiet, close to the town of Hayle, and St Ives. The beach is a short walk through the dunes and WOW what a beach it is…..Amazing… We are hoping to be back down in June again… lovely accommodation…

Myself, partner and sister stayed at Clotted Cream chalet in May 2014. The weather down was atrocious with howling gales and horizontal rain but the minute we arrived on the site, the sun came out and it just got warmer as the week went on. The chalet was beautiful, practical and comfortably large enough for us 3 plus the dogs. It was scrupulously clean and well equipped.

It’s ideally situated for exploring the surrounding area and we visited St Ives, Minak, Lands End, Padstow, Mousehole and St Michael’s Mount, not to forget fantastic beaches for the dogs.

The chalet and area were a wonderful revelation and I’m sure we’ll be back soon!
