About this location

The Cornwall region

This is a wonderful beach side location with stunning scenery. We have the mildest climate in Britain and the water is warmed by the Gulf Stream so it's ideal for watersports.

The south west has a much milder climate than most England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular summer getaway.

The area provides the best surfing in England, with towns like Newquay, Bude and Croyde being filled by enthusiasts every year. There is excellent walking on Bodmin Moor, domain of the legendary beast, and the coastline is wild and beautiful.


St Ives Bay is a magical place, from the fascinating town of St Ives with its maze of cobbled streets and art connections at one end, to the lighthouse island at Godrevy. It faces west to the sunset and our house has the finest views over all. There's plenty to do, from walking the coast path through the sand dunes, surfing or sand yachting, to visiting art galleries or sub tropical gardens. We're also near Penzance for the Isles of Scilly ferry. We have the densest concentration of prehistoric remains of hillforts, Iron Age villages, and stone standing circles, in West Penwith. And the local carnival of Heylfest takes place at the beginning of August. Lots to do and lots of fun to be had!
