Mermaid House
St Ives Town

£641 - £1837 per week

Mermaid House is a beautiful three-bedroom cottage, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the town, yet within easy walking distance of the harbour and surrounding cobbled streets of St Ives. Set over three floors, each room offers comfort and invites you to relax, whether getting a peaceful night's sleep, or unwinding on the large sofa, to plan tomorrow's adventures. The contemporary kitchen and dining area has plenty of equipment and space to dine together, and the open plan layout downstairs means you needn't worry about getting in each other's way. The younger family members can enjoy themselves in the snug upstairs, catching up on their favourite shows or playing games and, not to be left out, up to two dogs are welcome to join your Cornish holiday. The small courtyard to the rear is perfect for storing beach gear allowing you to fully immerse in that exciting holiday feeling.

Being in such a central location in St Ives has many advantages. There are five beautiful, golden, sandy, beaches to sunbathe the day away, breaking only for a refreshing dip in the sea or venture further afield out to Seal Island on one of the many boat trips on offer. Engage in the culture of the town with visits to the Tate, local galleries, and Barbara Hepworth museum, before a wander round the sculpture gardens. There is fun to be had for all ages, in the arcade, which can be finished off with a Cornish clotted cream vanilla ice cream, before a wander round the local boutiques in search of the perfect holiday souvenir.

A lovely house for a family in a great location for town and all the beaches.

Convenient and comfortable with great showers!

Good location for being away from the hustle of the high street, but a nice 10min walk to Porthminster or Porthgwidden beach. House was pleasantly spacious for St Ives and had plenty of room for 4 adults, 1 child and 2 dogs.
