Site information

St Ives Holiday Village has always been one of the most popular John Fowler sites, with the location only a short drive to St Ives itself and the site's fantastic woodland setting. The site is planning for a complete refurbishment to the clubhouse as well as the proposal of installing a 9-hole golf course in the coming years.

A few words from the owner -

The Hobbit sits in a woodland setting, I have created a garden around the chalet to enhance its cottage feel. With a picknick bench and outside tap and little shed. I have plated a couple of tree ferns and other lovely plants. You can hear buzzards, ravens and woodpeckers and see treecreepers. I decided to go against the trend, wanting to run my chalets personally for people wanting old style comfort and as a good base for extended breaks for working artists or anyone who wanted a home from home, wanting guests to feel they were staying at a friend's.

This has been a long project, the practical well equipped cook's kitchen hand built by me using a mix of reclaimed, upcycled, antique and new materials. Some original delft style tiles remain with reclaimed Delabole slate tiling with fossil clam shell inserts edged with hand sawn oiled wood surround. With a whale and squid feature on the wall beside the working cuckoo clock. Butchers block style wooden worktops treated with food safe Danish oil cover the fridge and washing machine. The electric cooker is AEG, bought in 2018 and is guaranteed for 5 years, it does the job. The under-sink cupboards took some thought; they have floating shelves which allow better storage and access to the water heater. The shelves and cupboard made out of doors make for a very useable kitchen filled with useful things to bring a quite delight.

I have invested in electro plated silverware for cutlery, not only beautiful it is naturally antiseptic. There is a decent selection of useful kitchen equipment.

There is a lovely jumbly mix of crockery, mugs, jugs, teapots and kitchen utensils etc. Also, a very generous mixture of drinking glasses.

The Hobbit double bed is antique and from the Kings Arms in Paul, it is under sprung, with a rest Assured Bedstead 1400 Ortho 1400 mattress, I have extended it so it stretches from wall to wall, with the extra space filled with cushions. There is a large antique pitch pine wardrobe with extra storage space for suitcases under the bed. The view is not overlooked and is into trees which once the leaves drops reveals two trees that look like "Ents" walking through the wood. There is a handmade bedside table that slips under the bed.

The bunk bedroom has an antique chest of draws with inlay and an arts and crafts style mirror. With practical hanging space and shelf for clothes and there is somewhere to put a cup of tea or something if you are in the top bunk.

There are duvets, but also a selection of blankets and throws for old style comfort.

The sitting room has a plain sofa bed which when extended in front of the leather sofa creates a large extra sleeping area. There is a beautiful arts and crafts style extending side table with a retro drop leaf extending solid wood dinner table.

The floors are tiled throughout with rush mats and woollen rugs and I have put up curtains over the bedroom doors for more flexible privacy.

I have put thought into the lighting with a mix of old and with new lighting coming from a specialist local supplier.

I have put clothes airers over the radiators and there is a ceiling mounted Nuaire machine which slightly warms and circulates the air in the chalet.

The bookshelves are made from reclaimed wood are oiled and supported by UK Sheffield made cast iron wall brackets. With window and door furniture being cast iron.
