Step Inside

Set on the lower floor of this once fisherman's cottage, the open plan studio layout has been matched with fresh coastal decor and welcoming ambiance, every nook and every cranny has been considered for your stay.  The kitchen come living/dining space is a lovely area in which to rest and rejuvenate whatever the season, reacquaint yourself with a favourite book or simply take time out with a coffee and morning paper.  A ship shape kitchen fully kitted out with all the mod cons for your holiday needs.  The bespoke double sized cabin bed is a luxury space to rest with a wall mounted TV with Blue Ray DVD player also.  The contemporary shower room is just off the bedroom with large power shower.

From your Holiday Door

The winning central location ensures days are spent exploring the winding streets and picturesque beaches of St Ives.  There is a small courtyard outside of the front door with low wall and granite steps offering a quiet sit out space as you take in the comings and goings of this quieter area of the town.  St Ives invites you to find your own hidden away cafe or artisan shop or immerse yourself in the hubbub of the main harbour front where a tempting collection of eateries and pubs can be found.  With nearest car park moments away (Island Car Park) you can soon hit the road heading north, south, east or west and enjoy the contrast of scenery from coast to coast.

Whether week long summer break or shorter winter getaway, make Hardy's Studio your luxury home for a while.

We absolutely loved our mini-break over Christmas at Hardy's Studio. The location of the studio was perfect to explore St Ives on foot. The decor and cleanliness of the studio was fantastic. It had everything we needed for our stay and was lovely and warm with the effective heating system in place. We can't wait to re-book for Spring!
