This grand modern detached holiday home has been well equipped throughout to create a splendid coastal retreat.  Situated adjacent to the picturesque Hayle Estuary, an RSPB nature reserve, this home offers great accessibility to some of the finest golden beaches and sights in the heart of West Cornwall.  With five pretty bedrooms, The Eider House is perfect for families or large groups.  The frequent branch line train is only 5 minutes walk away and arrives in St Ives in 8 minutes, offering some breathtaking coastal views along the way.

The Property

Thoughtful design and fresh, inspired decor await.  A spacious hallway and open plan dining room complete with polished white dining table and 10 rattan chairs offers a stylish space to enjoy a home cooked supper or family breakfast.  The open plan dining room leads into the contemporary kitchen, fully kitted out keeping even the most discerning chefs happy.  A smaller cafe style table is great for children to dine early or enjoy some quiet creative time.  The sitting room is wonderfully comfortable and is decked out in soft mossy greens, whites and more striking blacks, this vibrant room is a lovely space to relax or socialise.  The central staircase leads you to a tempting collection of bedrooms.  Each bedroom has a unique feel from the characterful artwork to the vibrant soft furnishings.  Sink under quality linens and enjoy a restful night in this peaceful home.  The top floor Velux windows offer a glimpse of the tidal waters of the neighbouring RSPB nature reserve.

We had a great time in The Eider House over New Year.  The location, house, facilities and advice given by Cornish Gems was excellent.  We are already planning our summer break and next New Years Eve.

French doors lead from the sitting room and kitchen and spill out onto the secure, fenced patio garden - a versatile space to dine, children to play or dogs to come and go and enjoy the Cornish sunshine from morning till late.  Ample garden furniture is provided including tables, chairs, over-sized parasol and recliners, if a day at home is the plan of the day you are all set.  The Eider House is located just one mile from Porthkidney, a picturesque beach adjoining the Hayle Estuary which is dog friendly all year round.  Breathtaking views can be enjoyed from this beach to St Ives Bay right across to Godrevy Lighthouse and beyond.  There is a lovely walk from the property along the Saltings which leads you to the beach and the West Cornwall Golf Course.  The charming branch line train is only 5 minutes walk away and arrives in St Ives in 8 minutes following the breathtaking coastline.  St Ives offers a cosmopolitan approach to coastal living with uber-smart cafes, delicious restaurants and boutique shops.  Whether an afternoon to wile away the hours by the fire or enjoying the sun trap patio for lazy mornings, The Eider House is a wonderful, modern coastal retreat to enjoy your holiday in Cornwall.

Testimonials

The accommodation was perfect, ideally located and beautifully presented.

Jennifer Whitehead

I was very impressed with the sheer helpfulness of the team, who efficiently and with kindness, enabled us to move into The Eider House on a Monday morning, after spending the weekend in a most unsatisfactory house which we had booked with a different company. I will definitely use Cornish Gems again. Thank you.

Andrea Davies

The house was great for an extended family holiday - well equipped and furnished. Service from Cornish Gems was excellent when we needed help sorting out the internet. Great property, brilliant position.

EMMA PIRZADA

The house was lovely, very clean and everything we needed for our holiday.

Sue Taylor

Very good house. Ideally located, clean and comfortable.

Craig Johnson
