The West Country region

St Ives - The jewel in the West Cornwall crown... loved for its superb beaches, narrow streets and flower-filled courtyards, its glittering sea and clear air and for its friendly hospitable people.

The beaches of St Ives are its crowning glories. Magnificent Porthmeor Beach on the town's western edge is famous for powerful surf, yet is ideal for non-surfers of all ages. The more sheltered Porthminster Beach on the town's eastern edge has perfect conditions for family groups.

Fishing no longer dominates the quays, but boats still fill the harbour and Smeaton's Pier is still the preserve of the town's fishing community. Fish are landed, nets mended and the spirit of Old St Ives is still tangible. The town's colourful heritage is distilled not only in its physical character but in great artistic traditions dating back to the 19th century when accomplished painters revelled in the clear accurate light, luminous colours and the vivid imagery of place and people - an artistic legacy exhibited in the splendid Tate Gallery above Porthmeor.

Add to all this a range of excellent restaurants and cafes which cater for all tastes, traditional pubs, entertainment for all ages, a modern cinema and a lively, friendly atmosphere and St. Ives becomes even more of a holiday delight.

The September Festival brings a feast of music, literature, theatre and art. Breton markets line the harbour in the Summer and the Square Sail Fleet are often present. Throughout the season enjoy floral displays that have won more National and Regional wins and placings in Britain in Bloom than anywhere else in the UK.

A marvellously scenic branch railway line follows the coast here on its way between Penzance and St Ives.

St Ives

Mermaid House is perfectly situated for those seeking comfortable accommodation and close proximity to the bustle of nearby towns.

St Ives is a Mecca for artists and restaurant lovers. Nearby Penzance offers the convenience of a larger town and the city of Truro with its historic cathedral, top restaurants, bars and shops is just 25 minutes away.

The surrounding area offers an abundance of activities, including scenic walks, beautiful fishing spots, woodlands, an ancient church, surf-beaches, a selection of local pubs and a Golf Course.

"Lovely apartment!"

A lovely apartment. Very high standard of cleanliness. Denise had covered every question in the information pack and the house had everything you needed for a relaxing week away. Excellent service provided by Denise.
A bit of a walk back up from St Ives - but good for walking off the food!

"A great family holiday base in St Ives"

This was a fantastic base for our annual trip to Cornwall. We love St Ives and have been doing this for nearly 20 years. We pick a different cottage each year but have already re-booked Mermaid for two weeks next summer. The 3 bedrooms and ample other space, including garden and space for 3 cars to park, were ideal for us with our two grown up offspring and their partners. The quality of the accomodation is excellent and it was great to get all bedding and towels provided. welcome gifts are also a nice touch. The house is a bit of a walk to the beach but it is within walking distance. its easy downhill and an inexpensive taxi trip up hill if you're feeling lazy. St Ives is spectacular of course. If you haven't already visited you've been missing out and the weather this year (never guaranteed of course!) was as hot as the Med. The owners are friendly and helpful and clearly care about the experience you have.

"Our Favourite!"

This was our third stay at Mermaid & most definitely won't be our last, it feels more like home every time we go. Okay, so maybe it's a little further out of St Ives than would be completely ideal, but it has ample parking, a garden and you can still (just about) see the sea! We always find it is the little touches which make Mermaid so special - the inclusion of welcome packs for the children is just lovely - and Denise is always so thoughtful - the house is very child friendly. This year we were asked to be honest about any faults we felt needed mentioning, so we have duly racked our brains and the best we could come up with is that the big plates in the kitchen don't fit in the dishwasher, otherwise we have to say (for us at least) it is perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mermaid, of all the places we have stayed in St Ives (& there have been many over the years) it is without doubt the best.

"Wonderful, beautiful house in great location."

First time to St Ives with our three children aged 2,12 and 15. Great time had by all! We loved Mermaid house, it was like home from home with everything we could have needed. It was light and airy, a great safe space for toddler to play and room for teenagers to escape downstairs! We took bikes, plenty of space to store in the garage, took about 3 minutes to cycle down into St Ives, great not to have to worry about parking, then took about 15 minutes and a lot of leg power to cycle back up the hill again!
Denise was very helpful and we would certainly like to return to Mermaid House for another holiday very soon.
