A message from the owner!
We hope you love your holidays at Sea Urchin as much as we have over the years. Enjoy watching the kite surfers on the river, seeing the fishing boats head out to sea and counting the carriages on the branch line train to St Ives!
We modernised and renovated the chalet in early 2020, and have enjoyed kitting it out for holiday accommodation. Please note, the property does not allow pets but is not strictly 'pet-free' (as very occasionally we bring our dog to visit).

We loved sea urchin all conveniences you'd need and wonderful views great layout and loved the bench outside too. Only improvement would be normal duvets and a broom to keep sand off floor oh and a cafetière .
