Taking its name from the Cornish word for ‘lookout', guests won't be surprised that the coastal views from Golva span eastwards from St. Ives and westwards to Godrevy Lighthouse.  Many an hour can be whiled away watching boats pass by on the glistening waters using the telescope provided.  This superb attention to detail makes this first floor apartment a fabulous home from home for those seeking a Cornish getaway.

Lounge Area
