Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Carrack Dhu maisonette opened in June 2008 after extensive renovation and refurbishment. Situated in the same Victorian terraced house as Making Waves ground floor apartment, but with a private garden and entrance at the front of the house to the first and second floors. We are located on a quiet residential road with south-facing aspect and only a 3 minute stroll down the hill to the harbour. Porthmeor Beach and the Tate gallery are only a 3 minute walk away behind the house on the north shore. The central location combined with quiet, leafy surroundings and spacious 'town house' interiors make this the perfect base for all that St.Ives has to offer.

The West Country region
Cornwall is one of the most fascinating and scenically
stunning counties in the UK and is an ideal location for a family holiday.
It has some really beautiful beaches – from the majestic north coast
beaches with their golden sands and Atlantic rollers, to the quiet coves
of the south coast. But there’s plenty to see and do too, from the world
famous Eden project to Lands End, from Tintagel Castle to the Seal Sanctuary.
There are some fabulous restaurants such as Rick Stein’s Seafood restaurant
in Padstow and a wealth of art galleries such as the Tate gallery in
St Ives. Great places to stay too, from classic rose-covered cottages
to some of the most family friendly hotels in the UK and the unique
Cornish Tipi camping experience.
ST IVES A CORNISH PARADISE
A picturesque town ringed by glorious beaches and a beautiful harbour. An amazing variety of shops amongst narrow cobbled streets will appeal to some, while others will enjoy its close proximity to coast paths and the wild Cornish country-side. Porthmeor, its largest beach, is a prime surfing venue and has won awards for cleanliness. Overlooking the beach is the Tate Gallery, one of scores of galleries around town, a testament to its renowned artistic community. Carrack Dhu is a minutes walk from the Barbara Hepworth sculpture gardens, and only three minutes from the Tate and Porthmeor beach. Other local attractions include ancient Pagan monuments, St.Michaels Mount, Lands End, Seal Sanctuary, or further afield, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Activities you can busy yourself with are surfing, diving, kite flying, or get out and about on a mountain bike. The evenings can be filled visiting restaurants, pubs or night-clubs if you are so inclined. We also have a vibrant live music scene. St.Ives has many quality restaurants and cafes (many can provide vegan / vegetarian food). All corners of town are within easy (but often hilly!) walking distance of Carrack Dhu.
