About Sue

I am originally from St Ives where I lived until moving away to the south east of England. In 2014 the call of the Cornwall became too strong to resist and I came home. I live, with my husband, a few minutes away by car. One of us is usually at hand if you need to contact us during your visit.

Sue purchased this bungalow in 2016

Why Sue chose St Ives

Lovely bungalow; clean, tidy, modern and in a great setting!

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was lovely to stay in. The girls felt like they were staying in a fairy tale cottage in the forest with the trees right outside their bedroom window and enjoyed playing with all the other children out the front. The bungalow was clean & tidy with modern fittings. It was a great base for us to travel to Paradise Park, Flambards and into St. Ives itself for beach days and wandering around the town (Park & Ride nearby was very handy). We all had a wonderful holiday! Thank you, Sue & Gerry (and thanks for the cookies too)! :)

The owners Gerry and Sue gave us a lovely warm welcome and showed us around the immaculate well equipped bungalow in a quiet forested holiday park. The perfect base to go and explore all of Cornwall and retire to at the end of a busy day.

Derowen is ideally located for exploring the delights Cornwall. Nearby there are magnificent beaches, secluded coves, picturesque towns and subtropical gardens.

St Ives is just 4 miles away and has stunning family friendly beaches, award winning restaurants, diverse and interesting shops and galleries. The St Ives Museum is a must visit for the whole family with displays showing the mining, farming and fishing history of the town. No need to take the car either, park at Lelant Saltings and enjoy the beautiful train ride into St Ives, arriving just above Porthminster Beach. On the way back why not alight at Carbis Bay and take in the golden sands there?

Hayle too has a long sandy beach and sand dunes that stretch up to the surfing beach at Gwithian and the island of Godrevy and its iconic lighthouse. Surfing tuition is available at Porthmeor beach in St Ives and at Gwithian in Hayle.

A short drive away is Marazion where you can walk along the causeway at low tide, or take a boat ride when the tide is in, to the magical St Michael’s Mount. The Mount has beautiful gardens to explore and a short climb takes you up to the castle, still the home of the St Aubyn family. As well as pubs, restaurants, cafes and independent shops, Marazion has an RSPB reserve on the wildlife marshes just outside the village.

Penzance is closeby and has an open air art deco lido on its long promenade. A good stroll along the promenade takes you to Newlyn, a working fishing village where you can buy the very freshest fish and seafood along the harbour front. Beyond Newlyn is the postcard pretty Mousehole with its small harbour beaches lined with cafes and gift shops. Look out for 14th century Keigwin House in Marazion, where its owner was shot dead in July 1595 during the Spanish Armada invasion.

West Cornwall has a strong mining heritage and it is possible to visit mines such as Geevor and Levant at Pendeen.
