ACCOMMODATION
CHY MORVAH, meaning "house by the sea" in Cornish, is certainly an appropriate name for this characteristic seaside hotel.  From the panoramic lounge and the dining room the view stretches across the golden sands of St Ives Bay.  There is a heated outdoor pool.
A short walk takes you down to the bustling centre of St Ives - a delightful town, with art galleries, a colourful harbour and glorious sandy beaches. 

All meals are included with a hot or cold breakfast buffet, a generous self-select picnic lunch and a hearty three-course evening meal. There is always a vegetarian option.
