Positioned at the foot of Headland Road and commanding uninterrupted sea views, Number 5 is located within a short walk of the beach at Carbis Bay, one of Cornwall’s most breath-taking beaches. The railway station is also within a very short walk and provides a link to nearby St Ives and the connection to the mainline at St Erth for London. Golfers will enjoy one of Cornwall’s most scenic courses at Lelant, just over a mile away with views stretching towards the iconic Godrevy Lighthouse, made famous by Virginia Woolfe.
Bordered by three beautiful sandy beaches, including Porthmeor and Porthminster beaches, St Ives Bay caters for any seaside activity, whether it be sailing, surfing or swimming. For less sea based pursuits, the cliff top walks along the heritage coast to the west are exhilarating, while the boutiques and galleries in the town provide a colourful shopping experience. Most notably the town is now also home to the landmark and extended Tate Gallery along with the tranquil garden oasis of the Barbara Hepworth Museum.
The clarity of light, sandy beaches and turquoise waters of the bays have attracted artists and holiday makers to this idyllic seaside location since the 19th century. With a rich history and fascinating seafaring heritage, the winding cobbled streets of St Ives that were once the homes and inns of sailors and fishermen are now peppered with boutique shops, quality restaurants, pubs and cafes showcasing Cornwall’s fabulous delicacies, as well as Cornwall’s only weekly jazz club showcasing local and national talent.Description
