Modern and spacious eco house in higher St Ives, convenient for the coastal path and walking to beaches, harbour front and shops. Gardens and parking for 2 cars
No. 7 Tom’s Yard, a semi-detached Eco house in the pretty coastal town of St Ives, offers spacious and flexible accommodation over three floors, parking for 2 cars and enclosed gardens surrounded by trees, providing the perfect place to relax and unwind. No. 7 is one of 8 Eco Houses built around a yard at the top of Higher Stennack in St Ives.
The bustling harbour front of beautiful St. Ives is within easy walking distance (20 mins) from the house and offers a wide range of things to see and do, including, The Tate, The Leach Pottery, Barbara Hepworth Museum, fabulous beaches and numerous great pubs and restaurants. The coastal path can be joined via a 15–20 minute scenic walk from the house. There is a handy bus service which operates from just across the road and will have you in the town within 10 minutes. There are taxi services to and from the town too, which is good to know if you don’t want to walk back up the hill after a relaxing day on the beach or maybe an active day surfing. If there are any skateboarders in the family, they will be keen to know that the innovative and ground-breaking St Ives Skate Park is only a quarter of a mile from the house. If horse riding is of interest, the Penhalwyn Trekking Centre is only just over a mile away. So many things to do, or you can just stop, relax, and have that well-deserved break.
This house and its flexible layout will particularly appeal to families with older children, multi-generational families or couples travelling with friends.

Great location, not just for St Ives main town & beaches but for exploring Cornwall, with easy access to Lands End, Lizard, Penzance. etc Very spacious and airy house and feels secluded despite having neighbouring properties nearby. Although the house isn’t in the main centre of St Ives, it is pleasantly away from the madding crowds, and it is an easy walk into town and beaches. Coming back up the hill could be a struggle for some, but we happily walked it. There are numerous taxis at very affordable rates if needed, which we used after having some evening drinks. It has been decorated to a high standard and consideration has been given to eco friendly contents where possible. We love the eco pans and have to go buy some for ourselves!
St Ives is one of Cornwall's top destinations and a beautiful seaside town where visitors can enjoy a traditional beach holiday with a twist. It's easy to understand why the town has been attracting painters, sculptors and ceramists for decades with its stunning scenery and natural quality of light- one of only four Tate Galleries in the world is located here in the heart of the town. The town itself arcs around the working harbour- the heart of the historic fishing community. You could lose yourself for hours in the charming cobbled streets which are crammed with gift and craft shops, art galleries, top notch restaurants and welcoming local pubs- a real treasure trove just waiting to be explored!
St Ives also has four fabulous beaches, Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Harbour beach and Porthminster which between them offer miles of golden sand and hours of building sand castles, playing in the rock pools and other family friendly activities. Dogs are welcomed out of season. Throughout the year, St Ives has a busy event calendar including the St Ives Food & Drink Festival in May and a Music & Arts Festival in September.
