Family friendly, travel cot/highchair. Well behaved pets on request. Note*** up 23 steps and on a hill- it will keep you fit! Situated just 5 minutes' 400M walk from the gorgeous, award winning, fine sands and crystal clear waters of Porthmeor Beach (Blue Flag & Tidy Awards), Harbour, Tate St Ives and town centre. Adjacent to the property is Ayr's lovely playground and playing field. Driftwood Porthmeor has coastal sea views from all windows and offers peace and quiet after the hustle and bustle of town. Driftwood Porthmeor is surrounded by spectacular beaches. 5 minutes walk away is Porthmeor Beach famous for its beauty and world renowned surf school. Head down to the beach for fantastic food and drink served in an contemporary beach cafe environment, or sip a delicious cocktail watching the sunset from one of their outside heated booths! The purity of light is dazzling and it is not surprising that next to the beach is the Tate Gallery and few minutes walk away is the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture garden. St Ives is very popular with artists and has its own school of painting. Close by are 4 other beaches, keep walking along Porthminster and you will come to the Island on the other side is Porthwidgen Beach sheltered and smaller perfect for little tots, next is Bamaluz -small but year round dog friendly, Harbour Beach great for watching the seals trying to steal the fishermen's catch and Porthminster Beach another gorgeous sandy bay with outdoor contemporary dining. Driftwood offers a self catering holiday but with fantastic dining opportunities close by are modern and traditional restaurants, cafes and gourmet fish & chips in abundance. Get lost wandering through the maze of cobbled streets lined by art galleries and boutique stores or head west to the coastal footpath to Zennor and just drink in the spectacular scenery. Be warned it is extraordinarily beautiful. Head East out of St Ives to Carbis bay you will find another amazing beach with crystal clear waters, get the train back and enjoy the coastal view.More
