Translating to 'Sea View', Mor Gwel is a welcoming and well-presented second floor apartment found within the Rosemorran building, and as the name suggests, affords far reaching views across the ocean. It is light and airy, having two Juliet balconies, one to the sitting room and the other in the master bedroom, both looking out towards Hayle's three miles of golden sands. Mor Gwel is perfect for families or couples to use as a cosy and comfortable base away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives. Sleeping up to five guests in three bedrooms, it is ideal for exploring St Ives town and all that it has to offer with ease. You can be walking along the harbour front within ten minutes, and the allocated, on-site, parking space is perfect for coming and going throughout your stay.
