House in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Local Shop On Doorstep. Atmospheric Open Plan First Floor Living/dining Space
Year after year people return to Cornwall for the beautiful sandy beaches, idyllic coastal towns, stunning scenery and fine local food. More than any other town in Cornwall, St. Ives boasts all of those treasures and more. Within walking distance of Bay View are four beautiful golden beaches looking out onto azure blue water. A long time favourite with artists St. Ives is home to the Tate Gallery and many smaller galleries. The train station at St. Ives links with the mainline at St. Erth but many will make the journey to experience the stunning coastal scenery along the line. In town there is an excellent selection of restaurants and pubs offering superb local cuisine and foods for all tastes and budgets. Stretching out from St. Ives you can walk for miles along the Coastal Path. So if you want to enjoy all that St. Ives has to offer there is no need to move your car. Bay view is located in a quiet residential location just 10 minutes walk from the main town and beaches. If you are feeling lazy you can always take the small town bus which stops just outside. Next door to Bay View is a very well stocked local store for all your provisions. The nearest large supermarket (Tesco) is on the outskirts of town a few minutes drive away. Bay View has been designed as an upside down house (bedrooms downstairs, living accommodation upstairs) to take in the views of the ocean and provide a wonderful open plan social space, incorporating kitchen, lounge, dining and kids corner, a room where everyone can be together and enjoy the ambience of this special space. With vaulted ceiling, exposed beams windows to three sides and 8 remote controlled Velux windows the room is light and inviting. When the sun goes down the Lutro remote control lighting system creates the mood you choose for your evening’s entertainment.

Perfect and immaculate in every way.
We have just recently come back from a 3 night stay at this property and everything that you could possibly want and more was here. 5 star accommodation, spotlessly clean and quality throughout. Future visits to Cornwall we will arrange around staying here. Perfect base to explore Cornwall, great for St Ives. Owners were extremely helpful and went out of their wait to accommodate anything you required.
Fabulous family holiday
Gorgeous property, very well maintained, excellent location. Michael and Eileen allowed us to hire in a hot tub, which made a fabulous addition to my 30th birthday celebrations. Excellent communication, extremely flexible on check in and out times as they could be. Cellar Bistro in town was gorgeous. Couldn't have been better. Thank You. Charlie
We had the most wonderful Christmas in St Ives.
Bay View is an amazing holiday home that was just perfect for our family of 7……a large brilliant and sociable living space that was close to the delights of St Ives.
Stunning, spacious holiday home
Just back from a few days at Bay View and can certainly recommend to anyone. There is everything you could wish for from clean spacious bedrooms to luxurious bathrooms. Excellent value for money and lovely, helpful owners. Living area is very modern with lovely sea views. We will definitely be returning.
Luxurious stay in St Ives
We are just back from a lovely week in Bay View in St Ives. We were very lucky with the weather and with our choice of accommodation. Bay View is a lovely house with a hi-spec interior and light, airy rooms. The kids loved the large TV and the Jacuzzi bath but my favourite gadget had to be the roof windows that closed themselves on the one occasion when it rained whilst we were there. The house is walking distance to the centre of St Ives but choose your route back carefully to avoid the massive hill from Porthmeor beach! We were a bit concerned that the shop next door might be noisy but it wasn’t at all and in fact proved handy for milk etc and because it had a cash machine. As for days out you are spoiled for choice in the area but don’t miss out on a Cornish Pasty from Philps in nearby Hayle. The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is also worth a visit (albeit it is expensive), as is Geevor Tin Mine (complete with friendly ginger cat). We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bay View and would love to return again in the future.
Absolutely superb (again)
We have just returned from our second stay at Bay View. It is a fabulous house to holiday in - there is nothing the owners haven't thought of - you won't be disappointed. It is easy to book, with very thoughtful owners, and extremely reasonably priced - you really won't find better in St Ives. It is well maintained and luxurious! Absolutely perfect.
