Welcome to St Ives Rests

Seagulls, Starfish, Mermaids and Butterfly Rest are stunning contemporary self catering bungalows within St Ives Holiday Village.The properties have recently been totally renovated and are set in a peaceful area with woodland views from all windows. The interiors are fresh and contemporary with an open plan kitchen / living room, leading to a double bedroom,twin bed room and a family bathroom. The bungalows are a perfect place to recharge your batteries and so are an ideal retreat for couples. All bungalows are pet friendly.

Families with small children will love the seaside themed interior aspect and the properties are just far enough from the car park to warrant a reasonably safe enough place for children and parents to relax outside. The 2 double front aspect doors open fully to let the outdoors in, and the woodland is literally on your doorstep. The beaches and hustle and bustle of St Ives are only about a 10 minute drive away, allowing you to then return back to your peaceful retreat at the end of the day for a nice deserved glass of wine on the patio.

All the amenities of St Ives Holiday Village are a 5 minute walk away to be enjoyed as and when you wish during their opening hours , currently late March to October ( charges may apply) . All 3 bungalows boasts a truly unique setting where all manners of wildlife can be viewed from inside and out. Rabbits, squirrels, jays, robins,finches and of course seagulls regularly visit, and cuckoos, woodpeckers and owls can often be heard.
