Studio | sleeps 2
The Old Salthouse is a ground floor studio apartment that underwent complete refurbishment into a contemporary living space.
Located within the iconic 'Barnaloft' complex located in the heart of the old fishermans quarters of St Ives known as 'Downalong'. The studio apartment is on ground level with a private parking space (which is a luxury in St Ives) right next to the front door. The Barnaloft / Piazza apartment and studio complex was initially converted in 1962 from a pilchard curing cellar and seine loft and provides private access to the beautiful Porthmeor beach where you can watch the sunset with a chilled glass of wine.
Ideal for a romantic getaway for a couple wanting the peace and tranquility found only in St Ives or alternatively friends who would like to share the St Ives experience of the Tate and Barbara Hepworth Museum and the wonderful culinary delights found in the area.

The West Country region
For those who enjoy the "sub-tropical" experience, Cornwall has much to offer. In the local area you can enjoy the splendors of Trebah Gardens, Glendurgan and Trellisick.
During the winter, Cornwall takes on a different beauty and clear sunny days can be followed by storm watching, with the wind and waves lashing the coastline.
Downalong is a picturesque conservation area with a maze of granite and slate houses and cottages, narrow winding streets and alleyways, all leading to either the lovely beaches or the working harbour. Porthmeor beach is a haven for surfers with golden sand and crystal water or Porthgwidden is a smaller bathing beach where seals and dolphins are seen regularly.
The Tate Gallery is a 5 minute walk from the apartment and so to is the Barbara Hepworth Museum.
Cornwall is known as the English Riviera, lying in the Gulf Stream with warm waters and palm trees growing all year round.
