Full description
Welcome to a gorgeously glamorous group holiday haven, complete with direct access to the most beautiful beach in St Ives.

Design-led Coxswain's Cottage, found near Porthmeor beach in the heart of St Ives' most cultured and scenic area, is a genuine treat for every sense.

Flawlessly finished and gloriously opulent, here you'll find indulgent style to rival the best beach villas - not to mention hotel suites - all over the world, including a starlit steam room and a secret tunnel that leads you right onto the beach.

Discover chic clean-lined décor, including natural wood and exposed stone walls, to give a fresh, welcoming feel from the moment you and your favourite people arrive. The living room is wonderfully sociable, featuring a squishy six-person sofa that's ideal for evenings spent together, watching the latest blockbusters.  An iPod dock allows you to set the perfect background mood, whatever the occasion.

The fully-equipped dining area is a joy to spend time in, featuring a ceramic hob, coffee machine, that all-important dishwasher - and a large country-style table for six, ideal for conversation-fuelled evenings spent with good friends, good food, and even better wine!

Three bedrooms, equipped with luxury linen and fluffy robes, mean six people can sleep in perfect comfort, while three bathrooms, fully stocked with designer bath products, mean no queuing for the loo!  

Two of the stylishly dressed double bedrooms are en-suite, while the large bathroom converts into a luxurious four-person steam room...ideal for warming you up again after a bracing plunge in the cool Cornish sea. A heated towel rail and plenty of fluffy towels mean the comfort doesn't have to end once you leave your steam room, too.

By evening, why not head out to the private patio garden for drinks and nibbles?  If you're lucky, you may just discover the secret tunnel that opens directly onto the sand on Porthmeor beach!

Thriving, bustling and full of creative energy, step outside and you'll soon find that you're in a very special area indeed. The St Ives School of Painting is just a short walk away, along with delightful clusters of gourmet restaurants, art galleries and craft shops to browse through.

Beach lovers will soon discover that they're completely spoilt for choice - and surely it would be rude not to indulge in a spot of windsurfing while you're away, too.

In short, we know you need a holiday just like this...all you've got to do now is decide who you're going to choose to indulge in all this amazing luxury along with you!
