Kynance and Garden Cottage 1 are first floor apartments. These 10 holiday properties (refs W43562, W43563, W43564, W43565, W43566, W43567, W43568, W43569, W43570 and W43571) are located in the grounds of Tregenna Castle, where visitors are welcome to explore the magnificent 72-acre estate. The sub-tropical gardens showcase the botanical advantages of the Cornish climate. The walled garden features a clipped serpentine box hedge enclosing the ‘hot border’ and a beautifully scented lavender surround to the pond. The woodlands contrast the beautifully manicured lawns and sculpted hedges. Originally created in the 1920s, the Woodland Walk is a circular walk that skirts the perimeter of the estate and gives breathtaking sea views. There is shared use of an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, which are both heated. There is also a separate shallow children’s pool next to both the outdoor and indoor pools. The indoor pool is designed in a conservatory style and the outdoor pool enables swimmers to enjoy unrivalled panoramic views over St Ives Bay and Gwithian Towans. Guests can also enjoy use of a fitness suite (at a small charge), with lots of cardio equipment and weights, equipped with fully qualified members of staff. Tregenna Castle also caters for weddings.
From the fine golden sandy beaches and the turquoise, clear Atlantic Ocean, St. Ives consists of lots of quaint fishermen cottages, shops, galleries, bars and restaurants offering fresh catches of the day. St. Ives is easy to reach by road and by train. The railway line is wonderful, running adjacent to the beautiful coastline. The mild sub-tropical climate, warmed year round by the Gulf Stream allows for tropical gardens, which can be seen at Tregenna Castle. Perhaps most famous for its wonderful light which continues to attract artists from across the world, St. Ives is also home to The Tate. The gallery’s building stands high above the magnificent surfing beach of Porthmeor and features exhibitions which represent some of the greatest contemporary art of the time. Allied to Tate St Ives is the Barbara Hepworth Museum, a lasting memorial to the great sculptress who lived and worked in St. Ives at her Trewyn Studio. Her workshop has been carefully preserved and made accessible; the gardens and house contain many examples of her work and some of her finest pieces.
