Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Wallis at Tate Reach truly is one of those archetypal Cornish holiday homes offering all you could ever wish from a luxury, dog friendly self catering holiday in St Ives. This amazing penthouse apartment boasts exposed beams, gorgeous interiors and some of the most spectacular sea views across St Ives. A coastal retreat which certainly would have been inspirational for world famous artists such as Alfred Wallis.

Wallis is located within the eaves of Tate Reach, yet still offers a bright and airy atmosphere. Exposed beams and reclaimed boat propellers certainly adds to the apartment's seaside ambience, along with the beautiful neutral interiors. The open plan living area is great for those who like to socialise, and with the amazing sea views via the two sets of double French doors and Velux window, we doubt you will want to leave.
Within the living area you will find a corner sofa which comfortably seats four and a cream leather arm chair with matching footstool is perfectly positioned for taking in the views.

There is so much to St Ives, it has a working harbour where you can watch the local fisherman bring in their catch and then enjoy that fresh produce at one of the many local restaurants. St Ives has won the 'Britain in Bloom' competition many times, there is a blaze of colour all around the town: houses smothered in baskets of blooms, parks and public areas a rich spectrum of radiant colours.

Tate Reach in St Ives Cornwall is ideally located near to the Tate gallery, picturesque harbour and golden beaches, and offers two fabulous holiday homes.

Tate Reach is a magnificent, granite faced, detached house positioned just behind the Tate St Ives and Porthmeor beach. The names of both of the apartments were inspired by two famous artists who had great connections with St Ives.
Whistler is named after the famous American born, British based artist 'James Whistler' who visited St Ives in April-May 1884 and stayed in nearby Barnoon Terrace. Wallis is of course named after the well renowned local naïve artist 'Alfred Wallis', who's progressive work, was appreciated by other St Ives artist colony greats such as Ben Nicholson and Kit Wood.
