Superb eco home..

This home is fresh and radiant featuring open plan living spaces with wall art by numerous local artists, which compliments the stylish furnishings and finishes. A new construction property, Gwel Bre is situated amongst a quiet street of modern homes, set back from the main town of St Ives which allows a different perspective of countryside views, a 20-minute walk from town centre. 

The property first greets you with an impressive double fronted facade behind a sizeable private driveway for up to 2 vehicles. Upon entering, you will pass through a practical boot room straight into the substantial open plan living, kitchen, dining room, with separate laundry room and downstairs WC.

Upstairs are 3 inviting bedrooms, one twin room (or super king) and one primary king ensuite, both bright and calming, decorated with more local art and contemporary furnishings. The third bedroom is small but has an occasional put up Z bed which is suitable for a child or plenty of space for a travel cot. It also has a lot of extra wardrobe space. Alternatively it can be a useful space for working as it has a desk and chair. Also upstairs is a full bathroom with over head shower, flooded with natural light.

A perfect place..

Gwel Bre is the perfect balance between countryside, waterside and town living. Blending in seamlessly with it's surroundings The Carracks' contemporary eco houses are within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty owned by The National Trust. 

It attracts wildlife from deer to many different species of bird therefore an ideal location for walkers and nature enthusiasts alike. A walk up Rosewall Hill will reward you with panoramic views of the Cornish coastline towards St Ives.

Just got home from our lovely staycation at Gwel Bre. We had a lovely time. Perfect location to walk to the town and beach and still have amazing country side views. Would definitely recommend. We also went with out young children who also loved it. It was a lovely break away and still felt like home from home with every little detail was thought off. Definitely recommend.


A truly wonderful house , with everything you need … from the moment we arrived it felt like a home . So much to see, do and eat (!) in St Ives and surrounding area and lucky to have parking for 2 cars right outside . The walk into St Ives and back up isn’t the easiest but worth it! We will definitely stay here again. A real gem . Thank you so much .


The house was lovely, perfect for our family of four It was very clean and how described, the view was amazing from the house, it was so peaceful but very close to St Ives. We walked into and back from St Ives as it was a nice walk and easier than parking in St Ives.
Lisa was a good host giving recommendations on places to visit and dealing with any questions very quickly
We would stay again.


We really enjoyed our stay at Gwel Bre 13 The Caracks, it’s a beautiful home, spacious and with every modern convenience you could want…and it’s pet friendly! Our fur babies really enjoyed their holiday too. The rain shower is a definite plus 🙂

Clean, well-presented, very spacious, and about a 20 minute walk to the town center, we’ll definitely be staying again whenever we’re next in St Ives! We love this home!


Gwel Bre is a beautiful modern house and looked even better than the photos in real life! The house was scrupulously clean and is well-located. You can walk into St Ives which is great as parking isn’t easy! Takes about 25 minutes. The beds were very comfortable which is important. Lisa & Serena were extremely helpful and always responded promptly to any questions we had. We would be happy to stay here again and definitely recommend staying at Gwel Bre if you’d like to visit St Ives and the surrounding area.


A great place to stay in Cornwall.

Very close to St Ives (around 20 minutes walking - but uphill on the way back!) and fantastic location to explore South West Cornwall.

The house was super clean, fitted with modern furniture and appliances and perfect size for a family of 4.

Sandy Toes were super quick to respond to our questions and always helpful with tips and advice.

Overall a fantastic holiday and we would highly recommend a stay at this place.


Had a lovely 10 night stay here. The house was beautifully clean and had absolutely everything we needed. Would stay again!
