Five Star Gold luxury self-catering accommodation
Relax in the gorgeous, stylish and well-appointed interior of this beautifully renovated 1900’s farmhouse. With a soft seaside palette and top quality furnishings and fittings, this house is a chic and comfortable base for your holiday. There are stunning sea views from almost every room, so you can really soak up the seaside.
Just along the coast path is one of St Ives’ best beaches, with the town’s top seafood restaurant on its golden sands. Beyond the beach lies lovely cobbled streets, shops, the fishing harbour, numerous art galleries and the Tate.
Why is St Ives so special?
The wonderful little fishing village of St Ives has long attracted visitors, artists and bon viveurs.
St Ives has a picture perfect seaside setting with rocky headlands, golden sandy beaches and shimmering azure seas. Whether walking, relaxing on the beach, exploring the surf or messing about on the water, there is a special place for everyone to find.
Its unique scenery and quality of light has inspired world-renowned artists and there is a rich artistic heritage of painters, sculptors and potters. The daily catch of fresh fish and locally grown farm produce inspires culinary genius and a flourishing food scene.
We are convinced that this is very close to Paradise! Thank you so much for this beautiful place, it really does make it easy to fully recharge!Schenck family - Germany
A pleasure to stay...
What a pleasure to stay in your beautifully renovated farmhouse by the sea. A unique property and the interior design blends so peacefully with the sea and sky that one feels utterly at home.Mabs & friends - London
The light, the air, the sea all around make you feel like you are in another world. The house is perfect, making the most of the sea views. And a stone’s throw from the centre of St Ives. It would be hard to imagine a more perfect location.Emil and Farida - London
