About Barbara Dickinson

We love this part of Cornwall and have had many super holidays at Fistral Beach. The apartment was not planned, it was a spur of the moment decision. Simply, we fell in love with its whole ambiance and location by the sea and wish to share our "home from home" and enjoyment with others.

Barbara Dickinson purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Barbara Dickinson chose St Ives area

Views, location and quirkiness sold it. It is so relaxing, set in its own well maintained grounds with stunning views across the famous Fistral surfing beach. We love sitting in the peaceful lawned grounds, enjoying the fresh clean air straight off the Atlantic Ocean watching the views of the ever changing character of the sea. Love its location between Fistral Beach and the beautiful unspoilt Gannel Estuary and Crantock Beach.

What makes this apartment unique

"Home from home" with everything you could wish for. Furnished in a coordinated style with comfort in mind, Accommodates 4 adults and/or family of 4. Ensuite off the master bedroom. Two singles or superking double in the second bedroom. Spa bath in the main bedroom. Dedicated parking for one car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything we could have hoped for. Visit Cornwall a lot and this time the apartment was "the icing on the cake" and within budget. Very peaceful, fabulous views. Will definitely return.

Very clean and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything you need, it was like being at home.

There are DVDs, a PS 2 with games and some novels to read.

The location is great for Fristral beach and for getting the ferry across the Gannal river.
