Light, bright and welcoming throughout, the open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area features everything you need to relax and luxuriate in each-other’s company, while you watch the world (along with plenty of boats!) go by from the windows.  

You can access the private balcony from the lounge, too – with cosy seating it’s a breathtaking place to watch the sun rising over St. Ives Bay, accompanied by a huge, steaming mug of fresh coffee.

A chic bedroom equipped with comfy king-sized bed is the perfect setting for lazy lie-ins.

A concierge service can also be arranged to provide heavenly holiday luxuries, including picnic hamper fridge stocking and local restaurant reservations.

By day, why not start your holiday adventures by exploring stunning Porthgwidden beach? Beautifully sheltered yet a real sun trap in summer, the beach is a blissful backdrop for laying out your towel and catching up on that book you’ve always wanted to start.
