As featured in Flybe's Flight Time Magazine. Short breaks considered out of Peak times.

A stunning seaside bolthole where you can unwind in comfort.  Praeds is a wonderful Grade II listed 3-bedroom bright and airy town house apartment set over three floors in the centre of St Ives.  The building is believed to have been originally built for Lord Falmouth and retains many of its original period features.

A smart, relaxing apartment to retreat to.  A wood-burner is the focus in this elegant sitting room with comfy sofa's which flows through to the well equipped kitchen and separate snug.  Praeds has generously sized rooms throughout, high celings and is flooded with light thanks to the large south facing sash windows which benefit from the acoustic glazing.  There are sea glimpses, stripped wooden floors and two bathrooms.  The property has been beautifuly furnished and there is an abundance of original, locally sourced artwork displayed throughout.

Step out of the door into the centre of St Ives' boutique shopping area of Market Place and Fore Street.  You are also just a few strides from the harbour and due to its central location, it is the perfect place to explore St Ives' beaches, cobbled streets and restaurants.  Praeds really is a hidden Cornish gem and a great place to people watch.
