About Lynda Davies
As a writer, this artist's studio is my perfect retreat from the busy world.
St Ives is inspirational - whether you are a walker, art enthusiast, gourmet, painter, potter or sun worshipper. Its clean air and wonderful light will re-charge your batteries and make you want to return!
Lynda Davies purchased this apartment in 2001
Why Lynda Davies chose St Ives
As a former artist's studio, (used by Patrick Heron and also by the late Sandra Blow, a friend of mine), the apartment is at the heart of St Ives' artistic heritage. It has a happy feel and being so close to the beach, allows those staying to connect with nature and the sea in a special way. You can make your morning coffee or tea, walk down to the beach and have the beach all to yourself!
What makes this apartment unique
The apartment has windows on three sides. The sun rises in the living room, and sets on the landing, so you have light all day. The living room has a ten-foot window seat with views out across St Ives Bay, towards the Godrevy Lighthouse. It is a great place to sit and chill after a day walking the coastal path, surfing, or swimming in the sea, which is warmed, on Porthgwidden Beach, by the Gulf Stream. If the dolphins are around, you will have a great view from the window seat!
Guests are asked to water the houseplants!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for a great stay. I felt I relaxed immediately in your lovely studio. I did some paintings of the view from the window. I will be back next year!
