This ‘fantastic, large family home’ was repurposed a decade ago as a B&B and popular wedding venue by its owners, the Le Grice family, who have lived at Treave for seven generations.
A frisbee fling from the waterfront, Philippa McKnight and David Hoyes’s intimate B&B is a soothing place to be beside the seaside.
Tucked into a sloping street behind the harbour, this ‘achingly cool’ 17th-century house has ‘lovely staff’, ‘well-appointed bedrooms’ and ‘tasty breakfasts’.
‘Forget overcrowded St Ives – there’s a real treat of a stay in Penzance.’ Quirky character fills the ‘beautifully restored’ brick-and-granite former 18th-century former admiral’s house, but ‘this inviting boutique hotel is all about the hostess, Susan Stuart’.
‘They really want to give you a treat and spoil you.’ ‘A lovely and relaxing couple of days.’ Much praise this year for Charles and Edmund Inkin’s ‘buzzy’ dining pub.
Across the causeway from St Michael’s Mount, which, ‘caught in the evening sunset really is a magical prospect’, James and Mary St Levan’s ‘fabulous (and fabulously dog-friendly)’ inn wins praise for its ‘excellent accommodation’ and ‘attentive, professional staff’.
‘It never fails to please,’ write Guide regulars in 2019 after a return visit to Charles and Edmund Inkin’s dining pub with rooms. ‘We highly recommend the accommodation and the food.’
The Mount is St Michael’s, a tidal island best viewed from your bedroom balcony or the terrace of this hotel overlooking the bay.
Built as a small hotel, this bright, airy property, ‘halfway up the hill behind Carbis Bay beach’, has been offering ‘stunning sea views’ since 1931.
A tranquil retreat from the bustle of nearby St Ives, Mark and Fenella Thomas’s chic Edwardian house stands above Carbis Bay.
After a day spent exploring the shops and galleries of St Ives, guests at Malcolm Herring’s hilltop private hotel can relax on the seaward terrace with a Blue Hayes Colada and feel serenely above it all.
A great deal of effort has been put in by the owners and it shows.’ Angela and Olivier Noverraz’s ‘beautifully appointed’ 1850s mid-terrace house has bags of style and an eco-conscious ethos.
