Number 8 is a stylish home from home with all the mod-cons you'd expect plus a few nice surprises like a lovely south facing decked garden and a summer house to amuse the children. This beautifully restored town house in St Ives, comfortably sleeps 6 in three good-sized bedrooms.

Available for short breaks at quieter times, please get in touch with your dates and we will do our best to help you.

Stylish furniture and a variety of artworks around the house make this a homely place to stay - see our Tripadvisor reviews for guests comments. The modern and fully equipped kitchen, includes a range cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine and of course a dishwasher. The living area is light, spacious and open plan, with living room and dining area, and a sash window overlooking the garden.

Upstairs there's a double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, bunks for two (full-size) and a twin room on the top floor. The double has wooden shutters, exposed stone wall and a feature fireplace with views out to sea over the roof tops from the bed. Also on the first floor is the family-sized bathroom with bath, sink, toilet, bidet (if you're feeling continental) and a separate walk-in shower as well as a dressing room with extensive hanging space and shelves for clothes.

Up to the top floor, the bunk room has a wardrobe and shelves and the twin room is a large loft room with fantastic views across St. Ives and out to sea.

The sunny garden is a good size and a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of town. With a large table and chairs for eating out and a summer house for the children to play in.

Pop through the gate from the garden and wander down the path and you're at the Barbara Hepworth museum in less than five minutes and then just a minute or so more and you are in the heart of St Ives town. From the front door, it's a five minute walk to Porthmeor beach, town or Tate St Ives.

High chairs and travel cots available at no extra charge.

St Ives

St Ives offers everything you need for a fantastic British holiday by the sea at any time of the year. A wide range of places to eat and drink, endless things to do as well as a fabulous choice of sandy beaches where you can just sit and enjoy the views or go for a dip.

St Ives has been a popular holiday destination for years because of its broad appeal – it has a long artistic heritage as well as being perfectly family friendly. The remarkably picturesque town has a number of stunning beaches plus the harbour and beach, both a hive of activity with all the comings and goings at the local restaurants and shops as well as the fishing boats and sail boats.

The pretty, narrow streets of St Ives are chock full of galleries, craft shops, cafes and restaurants with, of course, a choice of places to try a cream tea or a local pasty.

For your day to day essentials there is a Co-op local, Boots the Chemist and several banks, as well as a large Tesco supermarket on the road to Carbis Bay.

There are many exciting activities around town – from surf lessons, to golf, fishing, coastal walks and boat trips.
