Self Catering Holiday Flat in St Ives
St Ives is a brilliant place for holidays all the year round. It was once a fishing village, and has a lovely harbour. When the tide goes out the harbour is clean yellow sand.
There are lots of other beaches - one faces west and is great for surfing. You can walk for miles along the cliffs. The light, and the beauty of the place have always brought artists - the town is liberally scattered with all kinds of galleries, with art to browse and art to buy.
There's the internationally famous St Ives Tate Gallery, and you can also visit Barbara Hepworth's house and sculpture garden.
Our Barnoon Terrace flat is perfect for a couple - it's comfortable, convenient, and has this stunning view of the harbour, the sea and the North Cornwall coast. Everyone who's been there loves it too. We also have 5 other flats at Seabirds House close by. Email me for details.
About the flat
The flat is on the ground floor of a Victorian house. It is bright, colourful and certainly not chintzy.
The living room has a polished wood floor and rugs, dining table and chairs, colour television, electric heater, cane chair, comfortable sofa, window seats and view.
The window's double glazed and the flat is very warm and cosy in winter.
There's one bedroom, with a new double bed, 4 seasons duvet, fitted carpet, electric heater, small wardrobe and chest of drawers.
The kitchen is small but well fitted, bright and practical. There's an electric oven and hob, kettle and toaster. We couldn't find room for a microwave oven.
The bathroom has a bath with an electric shower above.
There are 2 (body surfing) surfboards in the hall, that you're welcome to use. You can hire wetsuits in town.
St Ives is on the north Cornish coast which is generally wilder and exposed to wilder winds and seas than the south. But because St Ives Bay is sheltered. the town gives you access to dramatic cliffs with crashing waves, a surfing beach, and also quiet gently shelving sandy beaches. Lands End are within easy distance, as are Penzance, Mousehole, the Minack open air theatre, St Michael's Mount and the Eden Project.
The A30 and the main railway line from London to Penzance both give good access to St Ives. There's a branch line connecting with the main line at St Erth with regular trains to St Ives.
