In an incredible position a stone’s throw from the beach in St Ives, this bright studio apartment is perfectly positioned for a seaside getaway for two at any time of the year. Spend all day relaxing on the golden sands, explore the town’s fabulous variety of shops and places to eat or venture further and experience all the attractions of West Cornwall, from ancient stone monuments to iconic St Michael’s Mount.
This ground floor property makes great use of space and is just right for solo travellers or couples. Step off the harbour front and straight into the open-plan living area, which has a dining table by the windows looking out onto the beach. Sit here for hours and watch the world pass by as the tide goes in and out. The lounge features a sofa and armchair, TV/DVD and CD, so if you wish you can pull down the blinds and chill out with a movie or some music. At the far end of the room a U-shaped kitchen cleverly incorporates everything you’ll need to rustle up a romantic supper or a picnic lunch, plus a breakfast bar with two stools. A glass-brick wall separates the bedroom area, which has a super-king-size bed (can be twin beds on request) with space to store your clothes. Completing the apartment is a shower room.
Step outside and explore the quaint, cobbled streets of St Ives, crammed with charming shops, excellent restaurants, cafes and takeaways, superb art galleries and friendly pubs. Beach lovers will never tire of the town’s five beaches, which between them offer cafes, chalets, surf lessons, sea kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, and of course mile upon mile of golden sand. You can also book a boat trip, hire a pedalo or be taken on an exhilarating RIB ride.
