In the heart of the stunning coastal town of St Ives, in a brilliantly central location with three fantastic beaches within three minutes’ walk and the stunning harbour just a stones’ throw away is The Sail Loft. Once used as storage for fishermans’ sails and nets and now beautifully and creatively converted to create a unique, spacious and stylish three bedroom home. 7 steps from the lane lead down to a large open plan living/dining/kitchen with well equipped kitchen, beamed ceiling (formed from ships masts!) and flagstone floors; the perfect spot for making plans for the day whilst sat around the large dining table or hunkering down on the sofa after a busy day exploring the coastal paths and local beaches.
From the sitting-room a door leads to a good sized twin bedroom (or king) and open tread, open sided stairs lead up to two further elegant double bedrooms with high ceilings plus a swish family bathroom. There’s an additional wet room and loo by the entrance – perfectly placed for rinsing off salt and sandy adventure. On arrival once you’ve negotiated the maze of streets you can unload right outside the cottage and there is a parking space reserved at the railway car park just 10 minutes’ walk from the house, permit provided. Well placed for exploring the excellent local eateries, traditional inns and coffee houses on the waterfront overlooking the boats in the harbour, exploring the cobbled streets full of galleries (including the Tate modern) and boutique shops or watching the azure surf action on Porthmeor beach or enjoying the water sports at Porthminster this is a brilliant base all year round for families and couples searching for a holiday in this favoured Cornish town.
