In a tightly contested field, St Ives is one of the most idyllic coastal towns in all of Cornwall, a fact that you'll come to appreciate when gazing out the bay window in the living room of this home. From the comfort of a cosy chair, you can gaze out across the glistening bay and beaches in the distance. Swivel around in your seat and you'll find a home that keeps it reassuringly safe and simple with the design, with white walls, wooden floors and the odd piece of nautically themed artwork making for a space that's instantly calming. The glossy kitchen is clearly influenced by the trend for all things minimalist, while the boxy bathtubs upstairs share similar traits – and offer a lovely way to finish the day. When it comes to seeing the best of the locale, you're in an excellent position to do so. Porthmeor Beach is only a seven-minute walk away and the Tate art gallery sits close by, too. Even closer to home – three minutes on foot, to be precise – you can get a primer on the work and life of Barbara Hepworth at the museum and sculpture garden dedicated to her art.

About St Ives

You could easily mistake St Ives for a town on the coast of Italy, France or Spain, thanks to its smart waterfront overlooking the clear, blue sea and white-sand beach. Just wandering along the charming narrow, cobbled streets is a delightful experience. But it’s not just its picturesque appearance that makes this former fishing town a popular place to stay, particularly for families. St Ives has one of the best...
