The two bedrooms have double and twin beds. All of the mattresses are brand new and very comfortable. There is a family bathroom, and a second WC. For your entertainment there is a Smart TV, DVD, unlimited WiFi, a DAB radio. You will also find an interesting supply of novels, games, DVDs, guides to Cornwall, and a full set of Ordnance Survey maps – to use during your holiday. The homely and comfortable living room looks out to the garden. The garden is planted with sub-tropical plants and you will find this a great place to relax. On the patio there is a large picnic table and also a separate bistro table and chairs. The garden catches the sun all afternoon and into the evening. If you need to rinse your wetsuits after a day on the beach there is a hose and washing line for the job. All bed linen, tea towels and hand towels are provided. You will need to bring your own bath and beach towels. A 3 minute walk down a leafy lane brings you to the main St Ives road. There is a convenience store and chemists here, and several good places to eat, including the wonderful ‘Becks’ fish and chip shop. A 10 minute walk down the hill takes you to the beautiful sands of Carbis Bay beach. If you decide to leave the car at Foxgloves there are very frequent buses into St Ives from Carbis Bay (it is also a wonderful walk, if you feel energetic). If you enjoy country walks then the coastal path to St Ives or Lelant is spectacular. The Pilgrims Way is close by, and there are also great views from nearby Trencrom Hill or take a picnic up to the Knill Monument and look out over St Ives Bay. More

We spent a fabulous week in this beautiful holiday home. Our only regret is that we were so busy that we were barely there to enjoy the comfortable and relaxing surroundings. Really hope to return again next year - thank you!
