About the property

Detached luxury garden studio near St Ives with parking


Autumn or Winter mini breaks (2 nights min) available now !

Careless Whisper is a stunning detached stone studio dating back 100 years, now newly converted to a very high standard providing a wonderfully stylish, warm, contemporary retreat for couples

Set within its own private garden just yards from the waters edge and the SW coast path at Lelant, the scenic St Ives branch line runs close by making this an ideal base for exploring the Cornish coast and St Ives town with its narrow cobbled streets, galleries, restaurants and cafes less than 4 miles away. If you love the outdoors, walking, swimming and surfing this is the place for you

The perfect place to relax and unwind, this small but perfectly formed studio has an open plan living space with fully fitted kitchen and breakfast bar. Furnished with quality linens, fluffy towels and sumptuous bedding adorning a Hypnos mattress for a dreamy night's sleep. The vaulted ceiling and skylights give an airy feel with patio doors opening out onto the glorious suntrap garden where you will find a table and chairs for alfresco dining in this great location.

Off the main living area, there is a separate wet room with shower (please note: due to the sloping ceiling there are areas of the wet room which have restricted head room)


Conveniently situated with a whole host of activities within 10 minutes walk: Beautiful Porthkidney beach; the Badger Inn pub; the SW coast path; West Cornwall Golf Course; the Hayle estuary & the RSPB Nature Reserve (a haven for bird watchers) making a car non essential for your holiday

Sorry we cannot accommodate pets or children (no matter how small!)

No smoking, and regrettably no barbecues permitted anywhere on site

Great place to explore Cornwall from!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our second visit to Careless Whisper. The property has everything you need and is well set out. The bathroom is a little bit cramped for someone over 6ft, but manageable. The outside space is brilliant and you can enjoy the sun from first thing in the morning till last thing at night. The studio is situated on a steep hill, which wasn't a problem for us but could be for some. The Badger Inn is a great pub at the top of the hill. There are regular buses running from the top of the hill into St Ives, which we took advantage of as parking is a nightmare in St Ives.

lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

The Studio is very well appointed and very close to the coastal path and the Leylant train station. The only thing that is tricky is parking with the post in the position it is in makes it a little difficult.

Sarah let me know that the studio was ready for us on our arrival day and was very helpful. I would recommend staying at the Studio!

Lovely studio perfect for a break away from home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time here. Bed lovely and firm and slept really well. In a perfect spot to discover nearby carbis bay and st ives. If you’re active the coastal path is great for a lovely walk or jog. Would definitely stay here again.

Liebevoll eingerichtet

  • 5 of 5

Mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtetes Studio.

Es gibt eine kleine Küchenzeile mit allem, was notwendig ist - 2 Platten, Backofen Mikrowelle, Wasserkocher und Toaster.

2 Hocker an der Theke ermöglichen ein schnelles Frühstück im Haus - bei schönem Wetter kann man gut draußen sitzen. Eine Sonnen-Liege ist nicht vorhanden.

Ein kleines Leder-Sofa läd zum Sitzen und Fernsehen ein. W-LAN ist vorhanden.

Ein gemütliches Bett mit ungeteilter Matratze und Decke und schöner weißer Bettwäsche läd zum Schlafen ein. Für die Urlaubswäsche steht ein kleiner Kommodenschrank mit Schubladen und Kleiderstange bereit. Unter dem Bett ist eine Schublade, die auch genutzt werden kann.

Fernseher, Staubsauger, Bügeleisen und Fön sind vorhanden.

Handtücher und Bettwäsche werden nach einer Woche gewechselt.

Im Bad gibt es eine kleine Dusche. Eine Steckdose ist dort nicht vorhanden.

Parken kann man problemlos entweder in der Einfahrt oder gegenüber links am Straßenrand ein paar Meter die Straße hinunter.

Der Strand Porthkidney ist zu Fuß in 10-15 Minuten erreichbar.

Der Supermarkt ist 10 Fahrminuten entfernt.

Ein Stück die Straße hinauf kann man im sehr empfohlenen Badger-Inn draußen oder drinnen ein leckeres Essen genießen. Sehr netter Kontakt per sms/ Mail zum Vermieter/ Sarah vorab und während der Zeit ;-)

We searched high and low to find the perfect place and found Careless Whisper, set in an idyllic location within sight of the turquoise estuary waters. With its suntrap garden, the studio is flooded with light and the sound of the birds from the surrounding woodland. We love being in such a peaceful place yet only a few minutes train ride from St Ives on the beautiful scenic railway.
