Built in 2015, Oaklands is one of the most intriguing, surprising and exciting modern homes to have been built in Lelant in recent years. With its light, spacious and imaginative accommodation, with a special atmosphere and feeling of being up in the trees whilst looking down to the water, this is the perfect place from which to explore the incredible outdoor lifestyle that the St Ives area and west Cornwall has to offer.
Situated within a short walk of the beautiful sandy beach at Porthkidney, with The Towans on the other side of the estuary, the small village of Lelant is perfectly positioned for Carbis Bay, St Ives and Gwithian Bay, and so convenient for exploring west Cornwall and further south to Mount’s Bay.
Paddleboarding, kayaking and surfing are all on offer, along with scenic walks and inspiring runs along the coast path, or a round of golf at the nearby golf club, one of Cornwall’s most breathtaking. The branchline railway provides a regular service to St Ives with a mainline connection at nearby St Erth meaning that day trips are easy and varied.
