St. Ives apartment description

This apartment is an extraordinary space which ends at the sea. If it is high tide you may imagine you are on a very comfortable boat. We've used oak, slate and stainless steel to create a quirky, high quality, meticulously designed holiday haven. A 3 metre window seat, Landsdown sofa, and rocking chair provide room to gather. A long oak dining table and soft lighting for relaxed meals. The kitchen has been designed to have views of spray and surfers as well as top class appliances. A larder, washer dryer cupboard, and hall with room for surf boards make living easy. Two double bedrooms, 1 twin/ bunk room and our 'zen beach hut' where you are lulled by waves are sleeping quarters. Two bathrooms with powerful showers (one ensuite) as well as full wi- fi, telephone with free calls, plus dozens of architectural surprises.

In 2011, St Ives was voted the top beach destination in the UK and number 6 in Europe beating all the beach resorts in Spain, France and Italy. Perhaps the reason is the sheer diversity on offer.
For families: fine golden sand, clean clear water, rock pools, and surf .
For walkers: green headlands and cliff paths skirting small coves with basking seals and dolphins.
For historians and poets : the land of the Celts where Cornish is still spoken and sung in ancient granite churches with carved mermaid pew ends. and where the trail to Land's End passes a bronze age village, standing stone menhirs and mysterious stone circles.
For sports: Thriving surf school on Porthmeor Beach, Sailing Club, Tennis, Golf at Carbis Bay, Scuba diving.
For painters:: St Ives harbour where the small fleet of fishing boats land the catch each morning.
For Artists: St Ives School of Painting with classes open to visitors.
For Art Lovers: The Tate St Ives with its gallery, workshops and coffee bar right on Porthmeor Beach. Dozens of smaller galleries, often run by artists, scattered throughout the town. The Leach School of Pottery.
For Gourmets: Porthminster Cafe on Porthminster Beach was voted 2011 Restaurant of the Year. A dozen other restaurants are in the running for elegant honest menus drawing on local produce. The harbour now boast a new place called Gourmet Fish and Chips¡--and it is worthy of the name!
For Trips out of town: All within bus, taxi or easy drive: the Eden Project, The Minack Theatre at Porthcurno. Lamorna Cove, Christmas lights at Mousehole, Truro Cathedral and the Lost Gardens of `Heligan ,
Yet none of these facts explain how St Ives tugs at the heart. Is it the clarity of light, the surface of stone, the salt smell, the sea in many moods and colours, the rhythm of the tides? Perhaps it is because surrounded by beauty, one simply feels creative. Anything is possible. Choice is almost limitless, but if you are like us, your favourite place will be the window seat at Old Saltings, glass in hand, observing the scene played out on the beach below.
