The Old Count House has nine comfortably furnished guest rooms all of which are en-suite and individually decorated – one has a stylish four-poster with luxurious whirlpool bath and another a distinctive canopied bed. Seven of the bedrooms are at the front of the house and enjoy magnificent views over the town, harbour and bay.
The Old Count House is in a quiet residential area with private parking and easy access to St Ives town, beaches and Tate Gallery.
A ‘park and ride’ scheme is nearby to save taking your car into town – a great advantage in busy times. Ground floor rooms are also available. All our rooms are heated and have tea-making facilities, hairdryers and alarm clocks and
all have colour televisions. "Our cosy lounge has an open fire for out of season breaks."
We also have an authentic Finnish sauna within our conservatory – a perfect place to spoil yourself and relax whilst looking out on to our beautiful tropical garden.
We offer a choice of breakfasts including a hearty Full English grill, freshly baked croissants or kippers. Our excellent cuisine is personally prepared using fresh local produce and served by ourselves as resident proprietors,
who take pride in our home.
We have ample private parking. We are a non-smoking household and regret we are unable to cater for pets or children.
A variety of activities are available including water-skiing, paragliding and windsurfing. The impressive new St Ives Leisure Centre is a
mere two minute walk away where the Gym hosts the latest in fitness equipment and enjoys breathtaking views over St Ives Bay, together
with aerobics, yoga and step classes and an Olympic sized swimming pool.
Also available are fishing or boat trips around the bay to Seal Island, pony trekking and golf.
We are ideally situated for touring and the coastal path. For a more exclusive day's outing, the beautiful and tranquil Isles of
Scilly may be reached by helicopter or ferry from our neighbouring town of Penzance.
Both the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are approximately one hour’s drive away or you can leave the car behind and
take a coach, both bookable locally.
