St Ives, with its wonderful beaches, cobbled streets and mild climate, is one of the most attractive fishing ports in south west England. There is a wide choice of shops, restaurants and bars and innumerable art galleries.

Beyond the town there are cliff walks and moorland landscapes with occasional ruins of ancient mines. In the locality are beautiful gardens, theme parks and museums. Above the surfing beach of Porthmeor stands the new Tate Gallery. Three minutes' walk away on the beach itself is Barnaloft.


Converted in 1962 from a former pilchard curing cellar and seine loft, Barnaloft is an award winning block of flats and studios. Each unit has a balcony overlooking the sea and there is private access to the beach. It is ideally situated in the old quarter of St Ives, a few minutes away from the shops.

Studio 20, which is available to let throughout the year, is very comfortably decorated and furnished. It is on the top floor, all electric and has been made as convenient as possible to run as a holiday home. There is a coin operated laundry in the block. A cleaner is employed to service the property.
