About Clare Hughes

Clare & Neil are joint owners of Sam's Place and Andy's Place, 13 Park Avenue, St Ives. We moved to Cornwall from Bradford in 2008. Clare was already running her successful interior design company, CH Design, and decided to continue the business in Cornwall. It was with these skills that she and Neil undertook the full refurbishment of 13 Park Avenue, in preparation for letting the apartments out for holiday use. "It was in 2009 that we began to let the apartments. We love Cornwall, and know we've made the right decision in moving here...and of course we are continually meeting new people through our business, with many becoming good friends as they return to our apartments year after year".

Why Clare Hughes chose St Ives area

The main reasons for purchasing 13 Park Avenue, aside from it being in the wonderful location of St Ives, was for the spectacular view out over the pretty harbour and town.

It is conveniently situated just on the edge of the town, which means we get the best of both worlds: we are just 5 minutes walk form the town centre, but also in a more quiet residential area. This is ideal for families and groups who may love the hustle and bustle of the town and beaches during the daytime, but want a more peaceful quiet place to escape back to for relaxation later.

What makes this apartment unique

Sam's Place has the additional benefit of a back garden, which gets sunshine throughout most of the day and is a really peaceful sun trap. The late evening sunshine reaches the upper terrace of the garden during the summer months, which is fantastic for BBQs.

Andy's Place has a small front garden that also benefits from late afternoon & evening sunshine. It's lovely to sit and dream, with that evening drink in hand, just soaking in the lovely view.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Our apartments are in the pretty harbour town of St Ives, and are ideally located for those wanting easy access to the town and beaches, whilst also having the benefit of being situated in a more residential and peaceful area on the edge of the main town. At night you can escape the hub-bub of the busy town, whilst also just being 5 minutes walk away for a stroll in to the bars and restaurants. However, please note that this means our apartments are not the ideal place if you wish to party into the wee small hours. Being located in a residential part of St Ives means that we ask for no loud music to be played after 10pm - thank you. Outside: Sam's Place has a private decked balcony at the rear, and also a shared 2-tiered back garden. The top level of the garden gets the late evening sunshine and is ideal for BBQs in the evening. It has a washing line for clothes drying. There is an outside cold shower for rinsing off wet suits - please make use of this as the sand is terrible for clogging up the bathroom drains. Andy's Place has a small rear patio that is a lovely sun-trap from mid morning until mid afternoon and ideal for lunchtime use. This apartment also has a small front garden, lovely for sitting out during the early evening time when it also gets the sunshine. It has a washing line for clothes drying. There is an outside cold shower for rinsing off wet suits - please make use of this as the sand is terrible for clogging up the bathroom drains.

Very comfortable, well equipped flat which has a stunning view of St Ives harbour.

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely lucky to have glorious weather and so made the best of the stunning beaches in this area as well as enjoying all that the town and local area has to offer. The accommodation was clean and well maintained and everything we needed. St Ives boasts many fantastic restaurants so it was just as well that we got lots of exercise walking. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing our apartment Jo, and thanks also for the good review and feedback. We take on board what you have said about the bed - we did select a fairly firm mattress when we furnished the flat (which is a few years ago now), and over the past 12 months we have had two similar comments about the bed. We listen to what our guests say, so we are going to purchase a new mattress for the flat - and will ensure it's more of a medium mattress! Thanks again for the helpful feedback, and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards, Clare.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay with 1st week in Sam's flat and 2nd week in Andy's flat. Perfect location and Clare and Neil are so helpful. Can also highly recommend Polly (who lives in the top flat of the house) as a baby sitter - she was wonderful looking after our little boy so we could get a very unexpected night out!

Good location and met our high expectations

  • 4 of 5

Started by getting absolutely soaked - should have preordered a taxi from the station. Otherwise we loved St Ives going down in the morning and returning in the evening on each of our 3 days.

We had a wonderful stay in Andy's place

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in St Ives and Andy's Place was lovely to return to after a day out exploring the area. The flat was clean, bright and very comfortable with great views across the harbour.

The owners Clare and Neil were very welcoming and provided great customer service. I would definitely recommend Andy's Place to friends and family and we will definitely be returning for another stay!
