Following recent advice from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, and avoiding non-essential travel specifically to holiday parks, we have decided NOT TO OPEN AT EASTER. The park will remain closed until further notice. If you have booked a holiday with us we will contact you direct. We believe it is the only responsible option to take in order to safeguard our guests, staff, suppliers and the wider local community. All holidays and all monies paid are transferable to other dates this season or in 2021. For cancellations please refer to booking conditions at here . If you wish to contact us regarding your booking please email enquiries@stivesbay.co.uk. Please quote your booking reference. We wish all our customers and their families well at this very difficult time. We urge everyone to comply with government guidelines. Best wishes from all at St Ives bay.

The Watermill Pub and Restaurant

The Watermill

Situated in beautiful surroundings, The Watermill, built in the late 18th century, nestles on the Old Coach Road in Lelant, near St Ives & Hayle, in extensive gardens with a stunning panorama across open countryside.

The Watermill was originally built by the Trevetho Estate to produce animal feed for the working horses used by the foundries and other industry in Hayle and surrounding areas during the Industrial Revolution. It continued to operate as a mill until the early 1900’s.

After years of dereliction it became the Old Mill Stables in the 1960’s. Then in the early 1970’s the building was turned into a restaurant and the mill workings, which were lying around the property, were reconstructed. Since then The Watermill has evolved into a delightful Pub & Restaurant.

It sits in beautiful natural gardens with view up the valley toward Trencrom. The mill stream that meanders through the gardens still feeds the original waterwheel which is still in operation

We are conveniently located ¼ mile from the St Ives A30 turn off and 3 minutes walk from Lelant Saltings Station.
