Shun Lee

St Ives, CornwallSleeps: 14Bedrooms: 7Bathrooms: 6

Home > Our Properties > Shun Lee
Set above the beach in St Ives, Shun Lee is in every sense a grand Cornish home, with unbeatable views, spectacular interiors and a fascinating history.

As featured in The Telegraph as the ultimate Cornwall Party House, Shun Lee is an exceptional holiday home with unparalleled views over the turquoise harbour of St Ives – views that wrap around the bay and extend all the way to Godrevey Lighthouse. The garden gate opens onto the South West Coast Path and Porthminster Beach is just a short walk away.

Sleeping up to 14 guests across seven beautiful bedrooms, Shun Lee makes for a truly unforgettable holiday and is the perfect base for special celebrations and large group escapes.

Magnificent and expansive, this grand property has a fascinating past. Built in 1881, Shun Lee’s original owner and master mariner, William John Paynter, worked off the coast of China, becoming a captain at Jardine Matheson. Paynter took ownership of the new tea clipper the Shun Lee in 1878, before retiring to St Ives to build a mansion named after his ship.

Set over four floors, Shun Lee has recently undergone extensive refurbishments that tastefully combine its nautical past and sensational location through bespoke contemporary furnishings. The handpicked antiques complement the elegant Victorian tiles and luxurious Designers Guild fabrics throughout.

Seven bedrooms – five en-suites plus two family bathrooms – provide space and facilities in abundance for up to 14 guests, offering versatility with three zip and link beds and four kings. Every detail has been considered so that a large group can unwind in luxury. The spacious lounge overlooks the harbour and a separate TV room features a pool table. The jewel in Shun Lee’s crown is the cinema room on the lower ground floor, which benefits from a phenomenal 108” 4K screen and projector for authentic movie nights.

The owners and housekeepers of Shun Lee have gone through the ‘AA Covid Confident’ training scheme and achieved an official accreditation for the property.

More about theGround Floor

Kitchen

A tasteful coastal style echoes throughout the spacious kitchen, which is well equipped with plenty of laid back seating and built-in appliances. The double range cooker comes with a grill, a multi-function oven, a slow cook oven and a fan oven, as well as four hotplate burners, a wok burner and a multi-zone hot plate on top. There’s a large American style fridge-freezer, wine cooler and built-in dishwashers, which cater for feasting on a large scale. Perch around the kitchen island and use the De Longhi coffee machine to make the first drinks of the day. 

A pantry and utility room lead off from the kitchen and are equipped with a washing machine, tumble dryer and plenty of storage space.  

Dining Room

Gather everyone around the custom built dining table, comfortably seating up to 14, and turn an evening meal into an occasion that continues long into the night. With incredible ocean views and a Sonos music system, it won’t be difficult to create a memorable ambience. 
 

Living Room

Flowing seamlessly into the surrounding seascape, this expansive social space is scattered with coastal greys, calming blues and sandy browns. Handmade driftwood chandeliers hang from the ceilings, while custom Designers Guild curtains mimic the sun melting into the horizon. Spacious enough to comfortably seat all guests, cosy up on the sofas and look out across the changing seascape whilst the gas fire warms the room and music plays through the Sonos speakers. 

TV Room

Bursting with entertainment, luxurious sofas nestle around a Smart TV with Sky and a Blu-ray player. Backed by a full sized pool table, this social space benefits from a Sonos sound bar, and an abundance of board games and DVDs. 

More about theFirst Floor

Master Bedroom and En-suite

Cast your gaze over St Ives from the comfort of your king size cabin bed, saturated in rich dark wood and peppered with chests and luxurious furnishings. It’s easy to be fooled into thinking you’ve been transported aboard the Shun Lee in the 1800s.

The Olde Worlde design flows into the en-suite bathroom with dramatic tones running throughout the floor-to-ceiling marble. Indulge in the large walk-in shower, which also benefits from a view out to sea.

Bedroom Two and En-suite

Waking up in the sumptuous four poster, canopy king size bed will seem like a dream. With views across the calming blue of the sea, bedroom two is an unbelievably restful room. An en-suite shower room features a cascading rainfall showerhead. 

Bedroom Three and En-suite

Calming creams and beachy browns adorn this king size bedroom, which benefits from a stylish en-suite with a rainfall shower head. 

Bedroom Four 

Sat beneath tall ceilings with exposed whitewashed beams, bedroom four can be made up as a sumptuous super king or family-friendly twins. Located in a quiet spot at the rear of the property, it utilises the magnificent bathroom next door. 

Family Bathroom 

Whilst three out of the four bedrooms on the first floor benefit from dedicated en-suite bathrooms, bedroom four has this impressive family bathroom all to itself. Adorned with art-deco mosaic tiles, this beautiful room comes with a freestanding bath and a spacious rainfall shower.

St Ives

Beaches and watersports

There are four excellent beaches within St Ives: Porthmeor, Porthminster, Harbour Beach and Porthgwidden, as well as a couple of secluded dog-friendly coves. A short drive will bring you to the renowned Carbis Bay, which is fantastic for surfing and watersports. Ocean Sports Centre offers lessons and equipment hire and you can try your hand at anything from surfing to kayaking, sailing, snorkelling, stand up paddle boarding and Hawaiian canoeing. Porthkidney Beach is another golden sandy stretch and there are miles of Hayle beaches leading to Godrevey Lighthouse. 

Outdoor pursuits

A moderate coastal walk from Hayle to St Ives begins at Britain’s oldest swing bridge, taking in the Hayle Estuary and merging with part of the ancient St Michael’s Way Pilgrim Trail from Lelant to Marazion. A gentler route around Godrevy Lighthouse will lead you in Virginia Woolf’s footsteps – the lighthouse was a pinnacle symbol in her novel ‘To the Lighthouse’. Cyclists can choose between the Cornish Way and the First and Last trails, and golfers will love the West Cornwall Golf Club. Several sea fishing trips also leave from the harbour daily. 

Food and drink

Head to the Porthminster Beach Café or the Beachcomber Café for relaxed dining and waterside views. In the heart of St Ives, try Cellar Bistro for an atmospheric evening meal and cocktails, or The Searoom for tapas in stylish surroundings. A bit further afield, The Gurnard’s Head at Zennor is set in a wonderfully rugged location and serves a delicious Sunday lunch. Carbis Bay is another foodie hub, with La Casista and The Bean Inn both highly recommended. The wine tour at Polgoon Vineyard in Penzance is a great sunny day activity. 

Activities for children

Young budding artists can brush up on their skills at the St Ives School of Painting, which offers a range of classes and workshops for children. Paradise Park in nearby Hayle is every child’s dream, with over 650 birds and animals to see. Geevor Tin Mine offers a fascinating insight into Cornwall’s mining heritage, offering a fun and educational day out for the family. Thrill-seekers can head to Flambards Theme Park for an adrenaline rush on their rides, an approximate 35 minute drive away.

Heritage and culture

St Ives is home to the world-famous Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. Widen your knowledge of art history with an educational ramble around the museums, soaking up the information. The captivating light quality has lured artists from all over the globe, and reams of art galleries line the cobbled streets. Perched on rugged cliffs high above the ocean, the breathtaking Minack Theatre makes a fantastic day trip and is about a 45 minute drive away. 

Time for pampering

Take the pressure off and surrender to a day of pampering in St Ives. Overlooking turquoise waters, the St Ives Harbour Hotel Spa has four treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room and gym. They specialise in a range of indulgent treatments, from HarSPA massages to ESPA facials. The C Bay Spa at Carbis Bay Hotel is another fabulous option, with candlelit treatment rooms, a fire-heated relaxation lounge and sea-view balcony.

The Ridley-Barker Family, Surrey | Trustpilot - March 2021

Great place. Well organised. 

The Silver Family, France - March 2021

WOW! What an amazing place. We spent a fantastic week in February 2020 at Shun Lee to celebrate a significant birthday with another family.

 

The house had been designed and furnished to a really high standard and with a fantastic eye for detail. It is simply beautiful and a huge amount of thought has been put into the kit - especially in the kitchen. Sharp knives, plenty of cutlery and crockery and even a pastry brush - which was handy for the beef wellington! 

 

The light in the house and the views were incredible despite the best efforts of Storm Dennis and the February weather. We will be back! Thank you.
