Huers Hide is the perfect retreat for couples who wish to unwind 'at home' in beautiful coastal surroundings. Relax in the conservatory, outside on the terrace or just lie in bed watching the shifting sands as the tides drift across the almost deserted Porthkidney Sands; lookout for shoals of pilchards boiling on the surface of the sea. With the Cornish Coastal Path just a few steps from the front door it is ideal for walkers and with the West Cornwall Golf Club, and the 'foodie' haven of St. Ives, just minutes away by car, train or foot, Huers Hide is a destination not to be missed.
With views through the double doors and the conservatory to the bay beyond, this room offers a tranquil haven in which to curl up and relax on the double settee; read a book or watch a Video or DVD on the full surround sound Freeview HD ready plasma television. A back-lit corner unit houses some quirky findings from various holidays, whilst the cupboard under the TV is full of DVD's, Videos and Games for those 'Cornish Mizzle' days. There is even a sewing machine if you're feeling creative.
This is the perfect place for those leisurely breakfasts, long summer lunches and romantic dinners that are the key ingredients of a food-lovers holiday. With outstanding views across the bay to Godrevy lighthouse and even as far as Trevose Head it is also the ideal room to put your feet up and enjoy a restful afternoon with a gentle breeze blowing through the two sets of double doors that open out onto views of the gardens below and the adjacent private terrace. It has double doors leading from the lounge, and to the terrace, a flexible table that can easily be altered to suit the occasion – small for a drink or snack, larger for a full meal; another comfy double settee and a relaxing chair with footstool. The powerful telescope will help track those elusive dolphins and a distant group of people near Gwithian may even indicate the presence of a colony of seals.
Here you will find a built in heated cupboard for coats, sun loungers, clothes airer, torch, shopping bags and umbrellas; a shoe cupboard and a well stocked book case.
The light, sunny, spacious kitchen has everything you should need to make meal times an easy, stress free, enjoyable time. There is a fan oven with integrated grill and 4 ring gas hob with overhead extractor fan; a full combination oven, grill and microwave; a large integrated fridge; an under-counter built in freezer and a built in dishwasher. A toaster, blender, juicer and coffee maker are also provided along with numerous utensils, baking dishes, saucepans and a fish kettle. The assortment of cookery books should help inspire creative ways to mix the superb local produce with the selection of culinary herbs that grow in front of the kitchen window.
Sometimes, however it is nice to take a break from the kitchen and the abundant selection of restaurants in St Ives come highly recommended – check out the Welcome Guide for more information. The large extendable kitchen table houses 6 drawers including the essential 'Kitchen Drawer' with all the handy things you never believe you'll need like notepads, pens, tape measure, scissors, sticky tape etc.
With the same glorious sea views as from the conservatory you could stay in the kingsize bed all day. Side tables, with reading lights, and 3 double built-in wardrobes with drawers discreetly accommodate everything you have brought on holiday with you. There is also a full height mirror cupboard with adjacent shelves where the hairdryer is kept.
To one side of the bedroom there is a study area where you will find the wireless internet hub and a telephone which accepts incoming and emergency outgoing calls. A selection of stationery, 'odds & sods', various encyclopedias, dictionaries, maps and assorted tourist information can also be found here.
An outside door leads to the private terrace – a lovely place to soak up the sun.
The bathroom is fully tiled with a white toilet and matching spa bath with overhead Mira power shower and glass screen. There is a rail above the bath to hang dripping coats if you wish to enjoy a bracing walk in the pouring rain – or you are unlucky enough to have been caught in a downpour; and a heated towel rail to warm the selection of lovely thick towels, also provided. The fully built in basin has a demisting mirror above and 4 cupboards beneath offer plenty of storage - the location of a dual voltage shaver point, a couple of toothbrush chargers, a hot water bottle, a magnifying shaving mirror and the first-aid kit. A large tiled work-surface allows for plenty of 'bits and pieces' and the washing machine is sympathetically housed with cupboards above for the iron, clothes pegs etc.
A selection of towels are provided for each guest.
Huers Hide not only has the advantage of a lovely bright conservatory but also the benefit of a private terrace accessed from both the conservatory and the bedroom – The addition of a built-in cupboard with a granite shelf, it is the ideal place to enjoy a BBQ, soak up the sun and make the most of the lovely view across St Ives Bay. Sun loungers are provided. The cupboard is also an ideal place to store muddy walking boots and Wellingtons.
Guests have unlimited use of the large well stocked communal gardens that can be reached via steps down from the terrace or from the car park. There are a couple of picnic tables, BBQ areas and grassy corners in which you can relax and soak up the view.

The West Country region
Hawkes Point is at the eastern end of the delightful Carbis Bay beach. At low tide you can reach Porth Kidney Sands, a quiet and evocative beach that is still part of Carbis Bay. Porthkidney Sands stretches as far as the Hayle Estuary and is backed by sand dunes and unspoilt by buildings. The views across the beach to Godrevy create panoramic images which have been the inspiration of many artists including the well-known artist John Miller. This is a walk not to be missed by any visitor to the area.
Sea Urchin Apartments at the end of Headland Road, occupy perhaps one of the most stunning locations in West Cornwall. On the South West Coastal Path from Carbis Bay to Lelant, Sea Urchin sits in an elevated position above Hawkes Point and Porth Kidney Sands. There is no passing traffic here - just walkers, artists and photographers all of whom are inspired by the panoramic views across St Ives Bay to Godrevy Lighthouse and beyond, which are bound to also inspire guests at Sea Urchin.
There are just 6 apartments in this unique development each having a space in the private car park which leads to the communal tropical gardens, a delightful area offering a further escape for guests, with a BBQ, picnic table and chairs to be enjoyed by all.
