3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
St Ives, Cornwall, England
The Sail Loft started life as a warehouse for sails and netting, it has now been lovingly converted into a comfortable, well equipped cottage with a spacious open plan living area and bedrooms with high, open beamed ceilings.

With a wet room next to the entrance, (perfect for washing off a sandy day at the beach), a large family bathroom, three good sized bedrooms and plenty of living and dining space for 6 it's an ideal base for friends and family looking to enjoy a holiday right in the heart of St Ives.

The location is hard to beat. There are three fantastic beaches around three minutes' walk away, (the harbour is less than two minutes' walk), there are two galleries and a cafe literally seconds from the front door and the shops, restaurants and cafes are a pleasant five minute walk away.

We are delighted to be able to...

We had a wonderful week in late February, opting for a quiet time for our first holiday with a newborn child. The Sail Loft did not disappoint, ideally located, well furnished, and great communication from Greta as we booked. Would definitely stay again, and are already planning our next trip!

I visited the Sail Loft with the entire family, grand children and dogs, we all had a wonderful stay. The property itself was just perfect, tastefully decorated, a homely feel and lots of little extras, such as milk in the fridge, coffee, tea. The kitchen was very well equipped. The entire property was exceptionally clean. As for the situation of...

We really enjoyed our weeks stay at the Sail Loft it is in a great central location and convenient for everything. Of all the holiday homes we've stayed in this felt spacious for the 6 of us, with a large kitchen area that was better equipped than our kitchen at home - it even had a pancake pan (which our...

Additional amenities & feature info
The large open plan ground floor, (incorporating kitchen, dining area and living area), is great for a holiday where you want to spend time together with friends and family. If you're eating in, (if you can resist fish and chips and pasties!), the cook isn't tucked away in another room away from the rest of the party.<BR><BR>There are lots of original features which give the property real character and serve as reminders of its previous life as a sail loft. Look closely at the main supporting beam in the living area and you'll see it is a mast from a ship.<BR><BR>Whilst there are hints to its former use, we have bought things up to date by providing a wii, free wifi, electric wood burner style stove, an iPod dock and a freeview television with built i... more

About the neighborhood
In a 2011 poll, the beaches of Cornwall were identified as amongst the best in Europe - beating anything that Spain, Italy and France have to offer and St Ives was voted the top UK beach resort. A £100 million clean up campaign has led to the beaches of St Ives being among the cleanest in Britain, (think pale sand and turquoise water) and its position, close to the tip of Cornwall and the end of the Gulf Stream, means it has a mild climate and warm winters.<BR><BR>But even if you're not planning on building sandcastles, St Ives has so much to offer; fantastic scenic walks, surfing, art, fantastic food, great shopping, pasties, fish and chips, ice cream, cream teas, (sorry getting a bit fixated on the food theme)!<BR><BR>Seals populate the harbour, while dolphin... more
