On the first floor are two lovely light and airy bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms. Walk in to the impressive Master bedroom with a king size bed dressed with cushions, throw and luxury linens. Lie back and soak away the stresses of life in the en-suite bathroom with a double ended bath tub or step into the double walk in shower.

It is perfectly appointed with Neff slide and hide oven, 4 ring ceramic hob, extractor hood, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The perfect place to cook up a gourmet feast which family and friends can enjoy around the dining table. If travelling by car, the closest parking is at The station car park or Barnoon car park. A Rover car parking ticket, bought in advance for those staying for a week is the most cost effective option and can be used across most of Cornwalls long stay car parks. You could also book a private parking space via companies such as Just Park or use St Ives Rugby Club. For those without a car, The Bank is perfectly located for shops, restaurants, beaches and local attractions, which are all within a few minute walk of this special holiday property. St Ives has a fabulous array of excellent award winning restaurants, numerous cafes serving great coffee. Famous for its artists The Tate St Ives is well worth a visit as are the numerous private art galleries - a haven for all artists, the light in St Ives is very special making it a perfect choice for all artists. The 5 beautiful beaches are safe and clean with Porthmeor being a great surf beach, it has a surf school as well as hire facilities, cafe and restaurant between Easter and October. Porthminster Beach is delightful and has the famous Porthminster Beach Cafe serving delicious locally sourced and lovely created food - a must for all foodies! The harbour town beach is perfect for watching the world go by and the boats bobbing about in the water at high tide, not to mention the common seals that visit the harbour. Porthgwidden Beach is smaller, has a great restaurant serving breakfast on the deck is a great pastime and if you are lucky you may see one of the pods of dolphins that regularly visit St Ives Bay. Bamaluz Beach is a small rocky cove with sand at low tide. If you can drag yourself away from St Ives you will find some lovely places to visit, during the summer The Minack outdoor theatre which clings to the cliff top at Porthcurno is a great experience, the shows are popular and go ahead no matter what the weather and only 30-40 mins drive. Falmouth is a bustling town with Rick Steins fish restaurant as well as some great shops, boat trips and water sports. Penzance is the gateway to the Isles of Scilly where day trips on the ferry leave, the town has an eclectic mix of galleries and shops. Marazion boasts the majestic St Michaels Mount which you can walk to at low tide of catch the little ferry. As for gardens, Cornwall has an abundance of wonderful gardens open to the public, Trebah is a favourite with a riot of colour and interest throughout the year, Glendurgan has a maze, of course The Eden Project is a must on your to do list - so many more gardens, too many to mention in this small space! St Ives is in a great location and never more than 30-40 mins from the south coast, Helford River, the far west of Cornwall with Sennen Cove or further north such as Padstow, Newquay, Fowey so a perfect place to stay. Walk along the south west coast path its a perfect choice for those walkers wanting to explore the glorious rugged coast. More
