Escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life at this delightful one-bedroom loft sitting in a tranquil courtyard in the heart of the seaside town of St Ives. Sleeping two people in one bedroom, this charming hideaway is the perfect place for couples who want to spend some quality time together exploring the beautiful beaches, boutiques and restaurants of St Ives. Spend happy days strolling hand in hand at Porthminster Beach, and in the evening, come home to your loft to curl up on the sofa with your special someone.

As you step inside this cosy one-bedroom loft, the calm decor and warm furnishings will make you feel instantly feel at ease. The open-plan living/dining area is the perfect place to relax after a day spent exploring the Cornish coast. Cook up a romantic meal for two in the galley-style kitchen and enjoy an intimate dinner with your loved one in the light and bright dining area. After dinner, snuggle up on a sofa in the lounge to watch a movie, or simply unwind with a good book. When it’s time for bed, retire to the cosy bedroom.

Grab your hiking boots and go for the 4-mile-long circular walk from Lelant (3 miles) along St Michael’s Way to Carbis Bay. You’ll be rewarded with some lovely views over St Ives Bay on the return route. Or head to Godrevey (12 miles) to see its historic lighthouse and stop off in a tearoom for a fabulous cream tea. If you want to get out on the water, head to the surf school at Porthmeor Beach (300 metres) and try your hand at surfing, paddle-boarding or coasteering.

It was charming, well equipped and clean. A note for owner: there is a slate hanging precariously right over the front door which could cause serious damage if it falls off onto someone's head. Another slate fell off the roof in front of the dog groomer next door. The gutters need cleaning out. When it rains it's like walking through a waterfall wRead morehen entering and exiting property.
