About the neighbourhood
Mermaid House is perfectly situated for those seeking comfortable accommodation and close proximity to the bustle of nearby towns.

St Ives is a Mecca for artists and restaurant lovers. Nearby Penzance offers the convenience of a larger town and the city of Truro with its historic cathedral, top restaurants, bars and shops is just 25 minutes away.

The surrounding area offers an abundance of activities, including scenic walks, beautiful fishing spots, woodlands, an ancient church, surf-beaches, a selection of local pubs and a Golf Course.
Getting around
You have many options with regards to getting around. The centre/beaches are within walking distance - as are the moors and the North Coastal Path. Also, there is a frequent bus service which costs £1 per adult per way. Taxis are very cheap to and from Mermaid.

The open top bus does tours around the area - and of course, if you have a car you can explore the many gorgeous areas around.
