Recently refurbished, Bassett Cove is set over three floors with open plan living/cooking/dining on the ground level, three bedrooms on the first floor and a large master suite on the second. Spacious and airy, the house features contemporary furnishings throughout, with sea views from its upper floor. It is also beautifully equipped with amenities to offer guests all the comfort they could ask for while visiting.

Best known for its picturesque harbour and iconic Tate St Ives art gallery which is right on Porthmeor beach, St Ives also has a terrific foody scene as well as plenty of independent shops to peruse. Situated in the glorious St Ives Bay, the beaches here are second to none too. Known for its clean water and brilliant surf conditions, those who fancy hitting the water can hire surfboards, SUPs and wetsuits from several surf schools like St Ives Surf School based on Porthmeor Beach. Porthminster Beach is a 20-minute walk, or a 5-minute drive away and is a good all-rounder for the whole family with its popular beach café, where you can enjoy a cold drink and watch the waves roll in.

Of course, if you prefer to stay in the dry, you can stroll the coast path, sunbathe or build sandcastles on one of several sandy stretches in the area, like Gwithian, Porthkidney Sands and Carbis Bay. Nearby, Trewyn Sub Tropical Gardens and The Barbara Hepworth Studio and Garden offer terrific days out with the family.

Welcome to St Ives

There’s something special about holidays in St Ives and we just can’t quite put our fingers on it. It could be the beautiful light that’s attracted artists to the resort for generations, the cobbled streets and coastal views…or that feeling of being a world away from the hustle and bustle. Whatever it is, St Ives has a charm that’s unlike any other, and we’d recommend it at any time of year.
