A great comfortable holiday base with on-site facilities
Set in over 100 acres of woodland in the popular St Ives Holiday Village, these delightful lodges offer something for everyone. Happys (ref UKC196) lives up to its name. This single-storey, semi-detached lodge has been lovingly furnished to a very good standard, and the interior has been designed with a certain colour and flair, providing a comfortable and cosy retreat all year round. Happys also looks out onto a green wooded area and the surrounding area is a safe haven for wildlife and holiday goers alike. Grace Lands (ref 29552) is a single storey terraced lodge, again providing comfortable accommodation for up to 5. Both lodges are ideal for couples or small families that want to relax and unwind on their holiday in Cornwall.
On the outskirts of St Ives, the site has many facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, table tennis, kayaking, zorbing balls, regular entertainment programmes, nature walks, children’s club, internet cafe, beer garden, takeaway, large bar and function room, shop and a launderette, all open from March to October (please visit on-site reception for full details and programme of activities). Guests can even have a try at scuba diving (£20pp).
Take the scenic coastal train from nearby St Erth to St Ives. The popular seaside town features a quaint harbour and glorious beaches. Budding artists and enthusiasts might like to visit the art gallery, Tate St Ives, or the Barbara Hepworth Museum. Strolling along its cobbled streets, you’ll find that St Ives is home to a host of curiosity shops and galleries. There’s also alfresco fine dining to try in one of the many excellent restaurants dotted along the water’s edge. The area is famous for its beautiful golden stretches, such as the award-winning beach at Carbis Bay, Porthminster and the rolling sand dunes at Hayle. This glorious surfing beach stretches all the way to Gwithian, and enjoys far-reaching views of Godrevy Lighthouse and out to sea.
Nearby, Tehidy Country Park boasts over 25 acres of woodland, cycle trails and bridle paths to explore. St Michael’s Mount (Karrek Loos yn Koos in Cornish, meaning ‘hoar rock in woodland’) is a must-see attraction during your stay. The small tidal island is close to Marazion, which is a hotspot for birdwatchers thanks to its habitat rich marshland just half a kilometre west of the historic town. Beach 2 miles. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
