Where you’ll be

Cornwall, England, United Kingdom

Located in residential area just outside the heart of St Ives makes this the perfect location to reach all that the town and surrounding areas have to offer.
We love getting up early on a sunny morning heading for Porthmeor Beach, just 5 minutes down the hill - a bit longer on the way back! We try and do the "4 beach walk" ending up with a coffee on the harbour front. If we have time we wander the cobbled streets and pick up fresh bread before walking home for breakfast.
If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle you can walk a few metres from the park at the rear of the house and connect with the SouthWest coastal path, with Zennor in one direction or the shorter circular route back via the Clodgy.
A wide variety of restaurants, pubs and galleries are on hand in town and there are taxis and buses if you feel you have walked enough.
This area is a haven for 'water babies'. There is a surf school, fishing trips, kyaking, canoeing and rib rides or let someone else do the hard work and book a boat trip to see the Seals. (always remembering that the coastline can be dangerous with sudden changes in weather and sea conditions).
If you just want time out you can relax with a book or magazine in the enclosed sun trap garden; in season you may be able to pick apples, plums or figs straight from the tree.
