About this property
An elegant and charming ground-floor apartment, just a stone's throw from the centre of the idyllic harbour town of St Ives. Headland View has been designed to accommodate four guests seeking a Cornish coastal break in the midst of the action of one of the county's most scenic and pretty towns. Step inside this all-ground-floor abode and discover the sitting room, with high ceilings and ornate feature fireplace, it is a fabulous space to relax in during your evenings, and large bay windows provide delightful views out to sea. Sink into one of the sofas or armchair as you watch TV, or if the evening is warm, you'll be tempted to take some drinks out onto the spacious terrace to watch the sun setting. When you want to have a hand at creating a delicious dish of your own, rather than sampling the fine selection of food in St Ives' many restaurants, head to the attractive kitchen/diner, well-equipped with all the appliances you need to get cooking. When you're looking to get some sleep, find two lovely bedrooms to choose from, with a king-size bedroom offering a touch of class with its pretty chandelier hanging above. The second bedroom can be set up as either a twin bedroom or a double thanks to the zip/link feature, so you can choose which setup would best suit your party. The closest beach is the gorgeous Porthminster Beach, offering a sheltered setting along St Ives Bay and holding a Blue Flag Award, enjoy golden sands and clear blue waters on your idyllic beach day out. Wander along the cobbled and winding streets of this scenic town and discover the independent boutiques and shops to browse along the way, stop in at one of the quaint cafés, or a traditional pasty shop to eat by the harbour. Another stunning spot is Porthmeor Beach, dog-friendly all year round, so you can delight in playing fetch amidst the waves with your canine-companions! Take in some of the wonderful culture and art in the famous Tate St Ives, and marvel at the talent within the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Park. Explore the region by heading west along the South West Coastal Path and come upon many historical landmarks along the way and nearby, including the ancient Bronze Age site of Mên-an-Tol, a set of stones including a rare holed stone, which is believed locally to have curing powers. The amazing Land's End Landmark Attraction offers fabulous photo opportunities and beautiful scenes of the coast. From St Ives, take a fishing boat trip with Bluefin Charters, a wonderful activity for keen anglers, while a sea safari is perfect for those who love wildlife with boat trips purely for spotting common and bottlenose dolphins. Enjoy a wondrous stay in St Ives by the sea in Headland View.
