Situated behind the renowned Tate gallery, within the desirable apartment building of Tate Reach, rests this contemporary one-bedroom holiday home, Heron. Settled in the heart of St Ives and enjoying spectacular harbour and sea views, Heron makes an idyllic base for a romantic getaway for two. Stepping inside, be charmed by the fabulous interior of this lovely abode, sympathetically renovated to retain many of the original features of the granite faced, Victorian house, boasting high ceilings, exposed stonework and elegant bay window, framing unspoilt views over St Ives. Kick off your shoes and unwind with a seat by the window, where you can soak in the fresh sea breeze as it flows through the open-plan living space, or choose to put your feet up and tune-in to your favourite Sky shows on the television. Discover the well-equipped kitchen tucked away at the rear of the sociable space, beautifully-appointed with fitted oak units and sleek black granite effect work tops, sure to entice any budding chef; a handy washer/dryer can be found in a nearby utility cupboard. Gather together with your better half at the vintage table, romantically positioned by the bay window, and soak in the views across the glistening waters as you indulge over candlelight. If you're not ready for the excitement to end, venture outdoors to the shared terrace, where you can meet likeminded holiday-makers as you take in the mesmerizing sights across the roof tops of this sought-after town. As the day draws to a close, move through the property to discover the sumptuous double bedroom, where you can relish an invigorating rinse under the rainfall shower head in the stylish en-suite before catching your rest ahead of a new day. Completing this fabulous apartment is a convenient wet room, promising that there will be no queues to get ready in the morning! Pack up your bucket and spade and head to the award-winning golden sands of Porthmeor Beach, where you can tackle the crystal clear waters with a spot of surfing, indulge in a spot of lunch with a view at the beachside café, or simply watch the world go by with a good book in hand. For more seaside adventures, Porthminster Beach rests a short distance away, home to Porthminster Beach Café, set right on the sand, famed for its Michelin Plate and its uninterrupted ocean views matching the quality of the food. Treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy and peruse the high-street and boutique stores that decorate the vibrant town centre, or discover the fabulous artwork on display at the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. Embark on a two-footed adventure with your furry friend in tow along the South West Coast Path towards Porthkidney Beach, where the golden sands welcome pets year round, or catch the train to Penzance or Falmouth to discover more of the delights of Cornwall. Whisk your loved one away on a romantic retreat with a stay at Heron.
