New for 2017! A wonderful family home in central St Ives

Perfectly positioned within St Ives, The Puffin offers a wonderful backdrop for families and friends to unwind and discover the West of Cornwall. Three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms offer comfortable accommodation for up to 6 guests with a sunny sitting room and contemporary kitchen/dining space. The popular beaches of Porthminster, Carbis Bay and Porthmeor are within easy reach or follow the coast road heading West to Sennen, Porthcurno and Mousehole. Whether you are new to this area or it has become home from home, St Ives offers a warm welcome. Private allocated parking is available.

The Property

The Puffin is split level in layout and has been finished and presented to an excellent standard. Arrive through the ground floor and immediately ascend to the first floor and the kitchen/dining space and separate living room. The kitchen is fully fitted and offers everything you could need for your holiday dining, dress the table to impress or keep it simple for big breakfasts and afternoon teas. The living room offers a relaxing area for all the group to gather, sink into comfortable sofas at the end of the day or cosy up in the evening with a favourite film. A cloakroom come utility room completes the first floor. A central staircase leads to the 2nd floor and the bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom has been beautifully presented in soft white and silver hues, as perfect for a couples stay as a family. Children will enjoy the bunk room or the twin room again decorated in fresh whites. The contemporary ensuite and family bathroom capture glimpses of the sea and offer an indulgent ambience for your post beach pamper. Guests can enjoy sea views from the master bedroom and bathrooms.

Cornish Gems are delighted to welcome The Puffin to the portfolio - enjoy the luxury of the location as you discover the beaches and harbour life of St Ives.

The Puffin offers full height glass patio doors from the living room and master bedroom which can be slid back to offer an outside in feel. The living room offers a small balcony from where the sea views can be enjoyed. St James' Court is a very short distance from the harbour front in St Ives where guests can experience a taste of Cornish life from the comings and goings of the fishing boats to local ale in the pubs. There is a plethora of places to eat out and enjoy a drink from artisan cafes and independent restaurants to fish and chips on the quay. Souvenir shopping is a must as you explore the galleries and craft shops. If action and adventure is on the agenda then hit the waves with the local surf school, try your hand at paddle boarding or windsurfing perhaps? If you would rather admire from the shore then follow the coastal pathways up and over some of Cornwall's most beautiful seascapes. 

Experience St Ives in style and book a stay at The Puffin.
