Its warm décor and relaxing ambiance make Mermaid...Mermaid House is a very spacious and modern three bedroomed maisonette on two levels.

Its warm décor and relaxing ambiance make Mermaid House the ideal home-from-home holiday haven. With its library of books, selection of DVDs and games, TVs in the kitchen and two double bedrooms and a Smart TV in the lounge - AND WIFI - there will never be a dull moment! A frequent bus service (bus stop 250 yards from Mermaid) runs into town. However, for those guests who enjoy walking, not only can you walk into St Ives from Mermaid (11 mins down, 20 back!!), but five minutes walk in the other direction takes you onto the moors. Additionally, there is a delightful walk across fields which takes you to the North Coastal Path. You then have the option to either walk towards Zennor or into St Ives, taking in stunning views - sometimes even spotting a seal or two!! For cyclists there is room in Mermaid's garage to store bikes. Christmas and New Year are absolutely magical in Cornwall, from the impressive Christmas lights at Angarrack and Mousehole, to the wonderful fancy dress party of St Ives on New Year's Eve - something not to be missed. The costumes and atmosphere are second to none, culminating in an impressive fireworks display over the harbour, which reflects on the water. It seems to get better and better each year. Certainly worth putting on your 'to do list!' Mermaid House is perfectly situated for those seeking comfortable accommodation and close proximity to the bustle of nearby towns. To quote one of our guests 'Can I just say that Mermaid House is absolutely stunning. It has surpassed all our expectations.' We would love to welcome you to Mermaid House - we know you won't be disappointed!!More

About the neighbourhood
Mermaid House is perfectly situated for those seeking comfortable accommodation and close proximity to the bustle of nearby towns. St Ives is a Mecca for artists and restaurant lovers. Nearby Penzance offers the convenience of a larger town and the city of Truro with its historic cathedral, top restaurants, bars and shops is just 25 minutes away. The surrounding area offers an abundance of activities, including scenic walks, beautiful fishing spots, woodlands, an ancient church, surf-beaches, a selection of local pubs and a Golf Course.
Getting around
You have many options with regards to getting around. The centre/beaches are within walking distance - as are the moors and the North Coastal Path. Also, there is a frequent bus service which costs £1 per adult per way. Taxis are very cheap to and from Mermaid. The open top bus does tours around the area - and of course, if you have a car you can explore the many gorgeous areas around.
