The Tate Gallery is also nearby, the coastal footpath starts directly opposite the house, and a bowling green and putting green are also opposite. Parking in St Ives can be a problem, but we have ample car parking spaces for our guests, either at the front of the house or in a private car park nearby.

Our guesthouse is in a quiet location and guests appreciate its peace and tranquillity with the knowledge that the bustling centre of St Ives is only a short easy walk away. We are ideally positioned for walkers, and make a great stopover for anyone walking the coast path, the start of which is located directly opposite our property. Our single rooms are popular for solo travellers.

Guests are always welcome to use our lounge which is comfortably furnished, with armchairs which encourage you to relax, to read or watch television. The lounge has magnificent sea and coastal views and we have a telescope which guests are welcome to use. Dolphins and seals are often spotted from our windows and very occasionally basking sharks.
