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!

A magical place to stay!

  • 5 out of 5
Zelah Studio is literally the perfect place for your St. Ives getaway. The studio is steps away from Porthgwidden beach and has stunning vistas of the sea from nearly every angle in the house. You can go to sleep at night listening to the sounds of the ocean waves gently crashing into the beach. At the same time, the studio is very conveniently located for all of the wonderful restaurants, shops, and galleries in St. Ives. The studio itself is very tastefully decorated and came fully stocked with everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. Furthermore, Lynda (the owner) and Simon (the property manager) couldn't be more gracious hosts -- they even sent me my forgotten shaver in the post! We will certainly be returning for another stay at this peaceful, tranquil, almost magical retreat. In fact, my only wish is that I could buy Zelah Studio so that I could have it for myself the whole year!

A fabulous apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We have recently returned from a short break in St Ives staying at the beautiful Zelah studio.
The stunning views from the studio along with the cosy and tastefully decorated studio help make it a great place to stay.
It is ideally situated in St Ives,so close to the beach and the town of St Ives.
I would highly recommend Zelah as a great place to stay it has everything you need in a beautiful location.

Great Studio Apartment with a Fab view !

  • 5 out of 5
Just arrived home from a very relaxing 4 night stay at Zelah Studio.
The location is fab,as is the wonderful view from the large lounge window which looks down onto the lovely Porthgwidden Beach(just a few yards from front door!) and far out to sea.
All the beaches,lovely art studios,The Tate,
Harbour and great restaurants are within a few minutes walk away!
Although the bedroom is small,the bed is very comfortable and the spacious living area more than makes up for it!!
The owner Lynda was very helpful and friendly when booking .
Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Perfect Holiday Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
The title says it all, this is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty of St. Ives. The location is ideal- only a very short walk to the beach. The harbour- with its restaurants, cafes, and shops are less than 5 minutes away by foot. With a gorgeous view over the sea, you can even enjoy the breeze while sitting inside and drinking your morning coffee. The apartment itself has everything you need- all kitchen essentials, laundry facilities, and paper goods. This is the first self-catering stay I've experienced where absolutely everything we needed was available upon arrival. The apartment itself was clean, with comfortable bedding and towels.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of our stay was spending time in a place that was clearly so lovingly cared for. From an eclectic selection of books and CDs, to local artwork throughout, the atmosphere of the apartment was homey and unique.
The directions provided for our arrival were clear and easy to follow, and all communication with the owner was prompt. The only downside to our stay was actually having to pack up and leave. I highly recommend this property, and when I return to St. Ives, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Zelah, a stunning apartment with a beautiful view!

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from another wonderful stay at Zelah. The beautiful view from the lounge window and the lovely decor immediately made us relax and ready to enjoy another fantastic week. The beach is minutes away and is overlooked by Porthgwidden cafe/restaurant which has lovely food and a chilled atmosphere. Just around the corner is the Olive cafe which sells amazing cakes....yummy but not great for the waistline!! The appt is 5 mins from the harbour, shops and many bars/restaurants. Porthmeor and Porthminster beach are a short walk away and are both beautiful. We had a fantastic stay and wouldn't stay any where else in St Ives now and we've been coming down for 25 years and stayed at lots of different places. Can't wait to go back!

A special and unique studio by the sea

  • 5 out of 5
A chance to stay in a studio that is obviously much loved and full of beautiful books and things that you are trusted to share. You look out of the big window onto the sea in all its moods. Its a wonderful place. Thank you Lynda.
