|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
Zennor Studio is situated in Cornwall's West Penwith in the hamlet of Towednack. West Penwith is the South West tip of England leading to Land's End and The Isles of Scilly. We are surrounded by sea and moorland, rugged cliffs and beaches. We are 2 miles from Zennor and 3 miles from St Ives. The South West coast path runs around the entire peninsula. There are magnificent walks, birdwatching, surfing, activities for children including swimming, horse riding and rock climbing. Once a sculptor's Studio the accommodation has been converted with imagination. It is peaceful, light, and open plan, in the midst of moorland, close to the sea and yet close to all the amenities of St Ives. A major prehistoric site, Zennor Quoit is 20 minutes walk from the Studio with stunning sea views. A place to paint, read, relax and enjoy.
We are Sue Sprent and Sue Robertson and we have owned and lived at Beagletodn for 20 years. Previously, we lived at Higher Tregarthen, 2 miles on the road to Zennor, in The Tower House where D. H. Lawrence lived during the war.
Sue Sprent is now retired and looks after The Studio and guests. Her son Robin is often involved in making initial contact and giving information to guests.
Beagletodn moors is a uniquely peaceful and beautiful place to live whether walking, birdwatching, painting or relaxing. Whilst secluded its also close to all the variety that St Ives offers.
