These two properties are set within beautiful, extensive shared grounds of 1½ acres, which include a sunny round patio with comfortable sun loungers, large lawned areas on two levels, and woodland leading directly on to the South West Coastal Path which has views over the shimmering sea. Rivendell is a spacious and comfortable first floor apartment set within a large, traditional, detached property with its own lawned area and patio to the front. The private entrance hallway includes a useful utility area and a wide sweeping staircase leads to an impressive spacious, galleried landing. Beach Retreat is a charming, detached, timber lodge with breathtaking views and a wrap-around enclosed private patio. Single storey, it features a large timber beam (tree like) running through its middle on a round shape, and will appeal to couples looking for a romantic escape whatever the season. It is tucked away in a semi-secluded spot within the woodland grounds.
There is direct access on to the South West Coastal Path, and guests can walk to Carbis Bay in one direction, or into St Ives town and harbour the other. It provides the ideal location for families, friends or couples looking for a peaceful haven with the convenience of pleasant walking distance of St Ives.
The area is renowned for its natural beauty, and the spectacular natural lighting effects have been a magnet for artists over the years. The location is equally perfect for guests wishing to stay and relax close to the accommodation, or for those exploring further afield. There is easy access to the West Cornwall Peninsula with Penzance, Marazion, St Michaels Mount, Lands End and Sennen all just a short drive away, or head north up the rugged, surfing coastline to the wide sand dunes at Hayle, Gwithian, Godrevey Lighthouse, Portreath and Porthtowan.
The area is popular with walkers, beach lovers, and bird-watchers, or you can gently explore by taking the scenic coastal train from St Erth, stopping at Carbis Bay in to St Ives with its quality restaurants, cafés and art galleries, including the Tate Modern and the Barbara Hepworth Museum. Beach ¼ mile (via the coastal path). Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile. These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.
