The living area has wonderful sea views across the bay towards St. Ives which can be enjoyed with the provided binoculars. These can be enjoyed from the two cream leather tub chairs which are an ideal spot to relax with a good novel…if the views don’t distract you. There are also comfortable cream sofas laden with turquoise scatter cushions which compliment the coastal views and the cosy rug laid on the wooden floors.
The entertainment in Amethyst is top notch! There is complimentary super-fast fibre optic wireless broadband throughout so that guests’ can stay connected and a 37″ plasma television with Freeview, Blu Ray DVD player and a Playstation 3 will keep everyone amused. There are also a selection of games and DVD along with a CD/MP3 player with iPod dock and DAB radio.
The dining room is accessible from the hallway and has an oak table with four chairs, and a high chair for younger guests. For those who wish to self-cater, there is a Tesco and Marks and Spencer nearby, as well as a selection of fabulous farm shops selling local Cornish produce. The sideboard in the dining rooms contains books, board games and a wealth of local information about St Ives and West Cornwall to help you plan your stay. Not forgetting the DAB radio so you can tune into radio Cornwall while you dine.
If you prefer to dine out, then the acclaimed Porthminster Cafe can be reached via a beautiful walk along the Southwest Coastal Path. One of the best beach cafés in Cornwall, and a favourite of our guests,’ this is not to be missed. There is a huge choice of other recommended eateries in St. Ives and why not try out a really traditional Fish and Chip restaurant: “Becks” in Carbis Bay?
