Set on Headland Road and equipped to offer guests with everything they could need to be completely comfortable during their stay, Mermaid Cottage includes a kitchen/dining area with a lovely big table for converging round after a day spent down at the beach. The cosy living room with its sofas and TV is great for chilling out in the evenings, and there's more than enough space for everyone to get comfy with a movie or their favourite show. Outside, the garden which lies to the back of the house, has an outdoor dining suite for fresh air feasts, and plenty of grass for a game of boule or badminton. There’s also a delightful balcony off one of the bedrooms which has sea views and is perfect for a bit of relaxation in the sunshine, cup of coffee or glass of fizz in hand.

The home’s four bedrooms lie upstairs on the first floor and include two super kings (with the option of converting to twins), a bunk room which is ideally suited to children, and a room with a double sofa bed which accesses the balcony. There’s also a family bathroom on this floor with bath and shower over, while a separate cloakroom can be found off the hall on the ground floor.

Just 3 minutes’ walk from the SW Coast Path, those who enjoy scenic strolls will love how easy it is to Hawkes Point where the views over the bay are stunning. Porthkidney Sands lies close by and offers the wild tranquility and beauty of a mile-long beach which is backed by sand dunes. Of course, Carbis Bay Beach is the place to be if you’re into watersports and sunbathing. With its turquoise water, fine white sand and beach-based surf centre it’s an idyllic place for days out. You’ll also discover a clutch of first-class restaurants right by the sea like Adam Handling’s Ugly Butterfly, or for a shopping or culture fix as well as more dining options, the iconic town of St Ives is easily reached by car or train.
