About Cassandra Rawlings and Richard Tomlinson

Cassandra has a life long love of Cornwall borne out of family holidays growing up and holidays with her own son. Richard fell in love with St Ives and the surrounding area from the moment he was introduced to it. It never fails to take our breath away and after years of visiting we still have a list of things we want to do each time we come down. We feel privileged to be able to own a second home here and have furnished and equipped it to meet our own high standards. Whatever your interests, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Cassandra Rawlings and Richard Tomlinson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Cassandra Rawlings and Richard Tomlinson chose St Ives area

St Ives is a bustling town with the most amazing beaches and country side on its doorstep. The Belyars is a peaceful location within a short walk of all the bars, restaurants, cafes and amenities you will need for your holiday. You could walk to a different beach every day of your weeks holiday or catch the train to Carbis bay or Lelant within 15 minutes. There are good bus services if you wish to visit other parts of Cornwall although the timetables for public transport are more limited in the quieter months.

What makes this apartment unique

Perfect location to stay at for special occasions. On New Years Eve St Ives becomes a huge fancy dress party, great fun for all the family either to watch and choose your favourite outfits or why not join in. There is a fireworks display in the harbour at midnight, watch from the Malakoff a great vantage point just a couple of minutes from the apartment

Guestbook comments from the owner

HI Cassandra



We had a really great stay in your superb apartment, it was just "the best" we had ever stayed in , it was modern, spotlessly clean, comfortable, spacious and very well equipped, I haven't slept so well in ages the luxury bed was so comfortable I slept in until 10:30 on our first morning.

"We Loved It" would certainly stay again and highly recommend the apartment to family and friends.

We had a great week with some really good weather, had a nice Sunday Roast at the Watermill in Lelant and a superb dinner down at the harbour.

The St Ives Buses were not running as it was too early in the year but the Royal buses were running from the Coach & Car Park at the Leisure Centre and the drivers were happy to drop us on our return right outside the apartment.

We just chilled out and rested with our feet up on the decking most mornings but did take the train to Carbis Bay to have lunch at the Hotel there, we did not go twice as it took so much time and effort to walk back up the hill to the station we missed the train and spent an hour waiting for the next one back to St Ives.

I am 73 and my wife is 68, but we are fitter now after the Carbis Bay trip.

All in all, it was a really good week and we thoroughly enjoyed it mostly thanks to your very special apartment, thanks for letting us stay.

Our Kindest Regards

Modern well equipped apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for 4 people, only 10 minute walk into town and beaches (although steep on way back) and a very good location to explore the area.

Beautiful, Clean & Bright

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to cornwall and we weren't disappointed in the slightest. The apartment is beauifully presented with everything you need! Literally everything. We got a lovely welcome hamper with tea biscuits and coffee...just what you need after a very long car journey! We were about a 10 mins walk probably less from the hustle of st.ives harbour and porthminster beach. Its is ideal for families and couples alike. We can't wait to return! Thankyou for making our holiday and birthday celebrations as wonderful as they were.

Excellent luxury holiday apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Another really enjoyable stay at this apartment. This time there were four adults and yet there was plenty of room for all, helped by the two bathrooms and two quality sofas so all were comfortable.

The whole apartment is well laid out with good quality furnishings and includes a well equipped modern kitchen, good dining area, and a terrace overlooking the beautiful gardens with the sea in the background.

The centre of st Ives and beaches are a short walk away.

There is plenty to see and do in st Ives with good restaurants. It is also a good base to explore west Cornwall. As parking is difficult in st Ives, having a parking space outside the apartment is a bonus.

Fabulous flat

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back ( stayed with our daughter yesterday in Warwick.)

What a fabulous flat you have.Clean , bright , well furnished and fully equipped. It was a pleasure to return there after a day out. The patio and views were brilliant.

Did not use your kitchen for cooking , washing etc., just for tea making. We eat out in St.Ives each night.

One major problem , get those hills flattened !!! We decided not to use the local bus to the leisure centre and did the walk back .Very brave or very foolish.

However , it was a super week , with fantastic weather.Probably the best holiday let we have stayed in.

Lovely comfortable base for exploring the area

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this apartment. The apartment is modern, well equipped with everything you can think of and is extremely comfortable. The bed is one of the most comfortable I have slept in. There is a thoughtful welcome pack on arrival too. Our children loved the communal gardens, the DVD's provided and the games. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay again and will definitely return.

A very modern and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It had everything that you need. The welcome pack was wonderful and very generous.

It is a good location to see Cornwall.

Parking at St Ives is Limited. We can reccomend using the Train from 'The Saltings Lelant'. Very good parking at this station. Easy to get to from the apartment.

We would love to come back again.

Peter, Janet and friends.
