About Ispoyntel House

Ispoyntel House is a proper “Wow!” property. The architect designed holiday home was built in 2013 to the highest specification. Sleeping six people in three bedrooms (with the use of a fold-up single bed) it is equally as appealing for families as it is couples. Just a ten-minute walk from the super-stylish restaurants, bars and beaches of St Ives, Ispoyntel House delivers on its promise of excellence.

The light, the landscape and the innate charm of St Ives have made it a favourite holiday destination for artists, photographers, potters and writers for generations. The mere fact that there is a branch of the Tate Gallery in St Ives is a testament to its artistic credentials, and you can see more at the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, and The Leach Pottery. St Ives also has a thriving community of performing artists and seeing a show at the open-air Minack Theatre near Penzance, carved into the cliff-face above Porthcurno beach is a fantastic experience.

Artists value all of their senses so it is no surprise that there are some fantastic restaurants and bars in St Ives. Although Ispoyntel House is very well equipped for self-catering, you should certainly treat yourself to at least one meal out. Book somewhere special, discover a family run gem as you wander along the narrow cobbled lanes near the harbour, or grab some fish and chips and eat them straight from the paper as you wiggle your toes in the sand.

Treat your offspring to the sort of bucket-and-spade holiday you enjoyed as a child at St Ives’s four beautiful beaches. Lambeth Walk is close to the centre of town although it is only accessible at low tide. Porthmeor Beach is world-famous with surfers, while Porthgwidden is ideal for families having a row of two-storey beach huts that can be hired from the council. Porthminster and Harbour Beaches are also worth investigating.

St Ives’ mild climate and the average 1,850 hours of sunshine a year make it perfect for being outside. The Sustrans network covers Cornwall and includes the Camel Trail, Cornish Way and Pentewan Trail. If you are feeling particularly energetic, then you can cycle from St Ives to Lands End in around two hours. Those who prefer walking to cycling will appreciate the spring beauty on the circular walk from St Erth along part of the River Hayle, or the route along the coastal path from Carbis Bay to Zennor. There are two excellent golf courses near St Ives, so whether you like to look at the ocean or the fairway, you will find a view you love.

Ispoyntel House elevates a typical vacation in St Ives into something extraordinary. It is not an average house. Your holiday tan may fade, but the memories you make during your stay in this incredible home will remain with you forever.
