In light of the COVID-19 virus, we want to reassure you that this St Ives self-catering property is disinfected (hard surfaces and soft furnishings) after each guest stay. Please note that until we can resume normal service, check in time is 5pm and check out is 9am. Here's a bit of history to start you off; the terrace where Hillcrest resides is one of the most prestigious terraces in Hayle, it was named following the first working locomotive 'Cornubia' which was designed and built in Cornwall and was made specifically for the newly completed Hayle railway line in 1838. With its most famous links with the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Clifton Terrace at Riviere Cliff, overlooking Copperhouse Pool, was eventually named.
Being a no through road, the terrace is peaceful and has
the best vantage point to enjoy Copperhouse Pool and its tidal
changes. A 500 metre walk from the house takes you past the sleepy
harbour along North quay to Riviere Towans where you take in the
glorious colours of the Hayle Estuary (Heyl (Cornish spelling)
actually means estuary!) onto the softest of golden sands that
reach 4km all the way to Godrevy Lighthouse and Gwithian's finest
surfing beach. A perfect playground for little ones wanting a
dabble in shallower shores or for the more adrenaline junkies that
crave the surf whether driven by waves or wind.
Hillcrest is quite maginificent, inside and out. With wooden floors throughout, it has two reception rooms, a large well-equipped kitchen, four bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as a wet room to visit straight off the beach, sun-soaked gardens and parking for up to four cars. On the ground floor, you walk into a spacious living area with wood burner, sofa, leather armchair, dining table to seat eight comfortably, and storage full of games and books. Through to the next reception room, you have ample sofa seating, a decorative fire place and a 55'' TV with BluRay DVD, sound bar and PS3 with patio doors that lead out onto a sun trap terrace and tiered gardens. Both reception rooms have views over Copperhouse Pool.
Now to the kitchen, cooking for a large family should be a breeze on the eight ring gas range and double oven and a full-sized dishwasher means clearing up is also made simple. There is plenty of preparation space on a super sterile stainless steel topped surface and a large fridge and freezer can cope with a family shop with enough larder space for keeping those Cornish Ales at perfect room temperature! Equipped for families with young children, as well as a high chair, stair gate and travel cot the owners have also thoughtfully provided a mini chopper/ blender, steriliser, childrens' plates and cutlery as well as child loo seat. There is a back door from the kitchen that leads out to the terrace and onto the tiered gardens. Here you will also find the detached wet room, perfect for rinsing off sandy bodies before going indoors, which also doubles up as a utility area with sink, worktop and Bosch washing machine.
On the first floor, you will find all the bedrooms and bathrooms starting with the master bedroom and en-suite shower room. There is a king size bed in the master bedroom and windows (with privacy blinds) that face onto the rear gardens, veluxes offer beautiful streaming light when desired but have remote controlled black out blinds for total relaxation at night time. There are two twin bedrooms again with black out blinds; the front facing twin room enjoys the gorgeous pool views. Finally there is a double bedroom with 4'6'' bed and fabulous views. There are two further brand new bathrooms; one has a bath with shower over and the other a large walk in shower, both are modern and have stylish tall radiators perfect for creating toasty towels!
Hillcrest's private and enclosed gardens are drenched in sunshine all day long from the lower terrace where lunch can be had at a picnic bench or, if you want to dine in the evening alfresco, there is a large BBQ provided and also more seating on a higher tier capturing the evening sunshine. Please be aware that there are steps between the different levels of the garden so small children would need to be mindfully watched! There is also a bench right at the front of the house across the peaceful street designed to take in the views of Copperhouse Pool and the Estaury. This home is perfect for families or friends sharing, it's equally fabulous for couples or smaller parties wanting that little extra luxury ( a discount may apply for parties of four or fewer). Hillcrest accepts one well-behaved family dog where house rules apply!

Great holiday from the start with easy booking through Orange roofs, plenty of useful information and excellent adherence to the covid rules. Hillcrest is a wonderful large property, attractive inside as well as out. Great position overlooking the estuary right next to the north quay. Easy parking, but close to all amenities, just a short walk to a beach, pubs, takeaways etc.Hillcrest is very well equipped, great range for cooking on the nights you stay in. Enormous dining / lounge room with loads of space for little ones to play. Plus large,comfy, tv lounge. Excellent quality dishwasher and washer with outside shower and toilet. The only thing missing was a drier, a must for out of season.
