Traditional stone house with gorgeous walled garden and beautiful views over the countryside. Sensitively renovated, well equipped and perfectly idyllic for a holiday. Excellent restaurants and coffee shops a short drive away. The owners are artists of a friendly, relaxed and quiet disposition. We spent a lot of time in Barbara Hepworth’s studio and garden, and The Tate in St Ives. Wonderful! Not crowded. We bought a good value 7day Art pass and lunched in the excellent Tate cafe several times. It looks out over the yellow lichen covered slate roofs of the town to the bay. We walked along cliffs and beaches like no others. Clean air and intense greens and blues sparkling on the sea. Massive boulders of granite perched on top of moors and hills. Birdsong, the wind and the sound of the ocean but nothing to interrupt the sense of peace. Little fishing villages with bustling harbours uploading fish and crab. The local people are as relaxed as the tourists! Always friendly and helpful. Car parking was a bit problematic unless we arrived early in the morning, but they were in the process of updating pay machines. We had a week only but it was much too short a stay. Our plan is to go back for much longer. Next time we’ll check the programme and book for the theatre at Minack. We came back nourished but with good books and memories to think about. A special trip.
