  • "We had a wonderful NYE stay at Sparrows Nest."

    The house had everything we could want, and all top quality! Kids and adults all more than catered for. Really great location - Carbis Bay or St Ives only a short walk away. Cornish arms a must visit for a pint! Hot tub is wicked to sit in day or night. We will be back.

  • "Such a beautiful house, great location!"

    We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to be back in the near future. We loved the additional touches such as the speakers in the ceiling, hot tub, and separate TV room for movie nights. Thank you!

  • "Thank you for thinking of everything we might need for a happy relaxing break!"

    Your house is beautiful and so well equipped. The hot tub was fab- even storm Kieran couldn't spoil our fun! With our best wishes The Swan Family.

  • "An excellent holiday house for a big family."

    Three generations were celebrating a “significant birthday”. Lots of safe outside space for the wee ones to run around. Inside had every facility, you could possibly need with kitchen and eating areas superbly fitted out. The wrap around balconies and top level outside sitting area have superb views over Carbis Bay. The bedrooms and beds in particular were very comfortable. Lots of clear instructions for all the new high spec equipment.

    It’s modern and chic but also cosy and comfortable. We loved every minute and wished we had stayed longer, a week was not enough.

  • "What an amazing place!"

    We have loved our relaxed week as a family of three generations. My granddaughters first holiday at 6 weeks old. The location is beautiful, the views amazing and the bonus of a hot tub. Absolutely loved it. Thanks, The Neal's.

  • "Beautiful property!"

    Has everything you could need. Kitchen well equipped and loved the open plan space. Plenty of bedrooms with great views of the sea. Lovely hot tub in the garden. Building work ongoing near the property, but was not disruptive. Short walk to the nearest beach, great not having to get into a car. Would definitely stay here again!

  • "What an amazing holiday!"

    Sparrows nest, despite its sleek, modern design, never failed to feel warm and cosy- absolutely perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach or walking around St Ives. Snacks and a few cheeky drinks up on the terrace is unmatched, the spectacular view at sunset being a must whether it's the hot tub, the BBQ or the fire pit, Sparrows Nest has something for all of the family to enjoy- and I hope whoever is reading this has an amazing stay as we have. Thank you Sparrows for a fantastic stay, and we are definitely coming back! Love, the John family.

  • "What a fabulous week!"

    Sparrows Nest is an amazing house, beautifully furnished and very well equipped, both inside and out. Loved our cocktails in the hot tub! Just a 15-minute walk to the beaches and into St Ives. Outside shower very helpful to rinse down the kids after surfing. Will have many happy memories of our stay. Thankyou!

The property

Sparrows Nest is a spectacular detached home designed by an award-winning architect.

This luxurious and unique property provides for extraordinary levels of space and first-class living.

A fully integrated smart home, with ceiling speakers throughout and breath-taking sea views from all living areas and four of the bedrooms.

There are many stand out features to the home including the extraordinary 9M x 8M roof terrace with luxury outdoor sofa and chairs and incredible sea view.

All first and second floor bedrooms benefit from their own private outside terrace or huge balcony, with frameless safety glass to protect from the elements and to enhance the views.

Located in the prestigious Treloyhan area of St Ives, just above Hain Walk and equidistant from the beaches of Carbis Bay and St Ives, which are a leisurely stroll away.

Offering a luxury base, complete with state-of-the-art appliances, stylish designer furnishings, bathrooms, and an expansive 0.5-acre garden, Sparrows Nest makes the perfect base for a large family or friends break or celebration, inviting ten guests and two babies to indulge in a seascape.

The property sits on a private lane and benefits from six private parking spaces, and a handy 22KW fast EV charger.

The huge feature front door invites you into the hallway and the open-plan living space, contemporarily designed and flooded with natural light through the extensive floor to ceiling windows, where you'll find a fully-equipped, sleek German designer kitchen, dining space for all guests, and a dedicated seating area to socialise and entertain.

Step through the five-meter-wide sliding doors on to a huge terrace with hot tub attached and which looks out on to the expansive enclosed garden and seascape.

The house nestles in the middle of the plot which is almost 100M long.

The enclosed garden is accessed from the kitchen and has a sunny aspect all day.

Due to the unique orientation of the property the rear garden also enjoys a day long sunny aspect but also provides for shading from the trees.

This area has been designed with a parkland setting in mind with extensive paths and a huge 5M in diameter purpose built private fire pit that can easily seat fifteen people.

As the sun sets, head to the sitting room featuring a handmade velvet corner sofa that can seat ten people, a 75” Smart TV, and fully integrated top of the range Sennheiser home theatre system to complete your immersive experience.

Access to a host of media channels is provided via Now TV (including all Sky channels and BT Sport channels), where you can enjoy a film night or catch up with your latest series on Netflix.

All of the five stylish bedrooms include top of the range mattresses and fully fitted wardrobes and a hairdryer.

There is a super-king-size on the ground floor, offering great accessibility for those with limited mobility, and an en-suite shower room.

Head upstairs to locate two super-king-size bedrooms with zip/link beds, both with access to private balconies and spectacular sea views.

The family bathroom houses a walk-in shower and free-standing bath, so you can best decide how to prepare for the day.

There are two master bedrooms to the property, the king size bed on the first floor has sliding doors on to its own large private terrace with sea view, Smart TV and en-suite bathroom.

The principal master bedroom suite occupies the whole of the second floor, with a super-king-size bed, Smart TV, en-suite bathroom with a free-standing bath, and sliding door access to a private sea facing terrace.

Awaken to a refreshing shower or a long soak in the indulgent bath, before enjoying your morning coffee and sea views upon the terrace.

All bathrooms also have vanity drawer units under the sink with mirrored cabinets above the sink.

There are shaving and toothbrush charger sockets in all bathrooms.

There is also a separate ground floor cloakroom with WC and basin.

Discover the spacious boot room, with plenty of space to hang up coats and jackets and put shoes and boots out of the way.

It has a special plumbed in dog basin (with hot water) for cleaning those muddy sandy paws and there are plenty of games and puzzles to stay occupied on those rainy days!

There is extensive external lighting including lighting bollards to the private lane when returning in the dark.

You can control all of the music, lighting, heating and video intercom from the smart home touch screens located in the kitchen and second floor bedroom.

Whilst travelling through the home all systems can be controlled from one of the three smart home remotes.

All of the rooms have fixed key pads to control lighting and the extensive lighting scenes designed for your pleasure.

If you can tear yourself away from your luxury abode, head for Carbis Bay Beach or Porthminster Beach, both enveloped by stunning, turquoise waters, before dining out at the popular Porthminster Beach Café; in the area you'll find a selection of shops and eateries to ease your stay, along with the chance to tour the St Ives Harbour, Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, and Tate St Ives gallery.

Head south for Penzance Promenade, offering another day near the coastline, where you can sample some local produce at Argoe seafood restaurant whilst enjoying quayside views, whilst the Newlyn Art Gallery is nearby for art enthusiasts.

End your break by following the Penwith Heritage Coast walking trail, reaching the vantage point of Land's End, and the fabulous surfing beach at Sennen, before returning home for sundowners around the fire pit.

Indulge in an opulent Cornish getaway at Sparrows Nest.
