Dolphins - 3 Carthew Court Barnoon/Carthew, St Ives

£398 - £1036 per week

Dolphins is a lovely holiday home located within the popular, Carthew Court complex, ideal for a small family. No matter the weather, you have beautiful sea views over Porthmeor, via the large floor to ceiling windows and patio door from the sitting room. Enjoy your morning coffee outside on the sea facing patio, while you plan your day ahead, or to the rear of the property, is a larger enclosed patio, a real sun trap, where you can all relax and sunbathe in peace and quiet, with only birdsong around you.

A short walk down Porthmeor Hill will lead you to the crowd-pleasing surfing beach, where you could easily spend the day. You have the choice of hiring surf boards, stand up paddle boards, or taking lessons, for those eager to learn. Two nearby cafes will keep you fed and watered throughout the day, or you can simply walk a couple of minutes further into the bustling town centre, where you can find a further four beaches, boat trips to see the seals, restaurants, bars and boutiques for all ages.
