Only a mile from the stunning blue flag beach at Carbis Bay and two miles from St Ives, Una St Ives is Cornwall’s new eco-inspired retreat. 

With an increasing number of people looking to holiday in the UK, the South West’s appeal has never been so attractive.  Investing in your own piece of Cornwall means not only an income stream but a holiday home too and Una St Ives hits the jackpot for location in Cornwall's most popular tourist destination* whilst its eco-inspired living is the icing on the cake.

The development of the site, previously known as Little Trevarrack Holiday Park, is being managed by Cornwall-based developers CC Leisure Ltd on behalf of the new owners Frogmore.  The 20 acre site has been unveiled as a unique retreat comprising 123 luxury holiday homes that offer the opportunity for buyers to invest in a choice of four different house types with access to a private leisure centrepiece featuring an indoor infinity swimming pool, spa and restaurant, in addition to an all-weather multipurpose sports surface and fitness suite. Owners have a choice of top designer interiors, some of which draw inspiration from St Ives’ artistic culture.  


Una St Ives houses will also benefit from full, on-site management and an optional letting programme, providing an attractive and sophisticated ‘lock up and leave’ investment structure for investors looking to take advantage of a high class managed year-round income.


Houses will incorporate eco-construction techniques to minimise the developments’ impact on the local environment.  They will be constructed from timber obtained from sustainable sources and built with exceptionally high levels of thermal insulation, sedum roofs and triple glazed windows, all of which reduces energy consumption and minimise the developments’ carbon footprint.  


Owners and their paying guests will have open access to the extensive Una St Ives grounds which is laid largely down to meadow grass, featuring wild flowers and Cornish hedgerows. The first phase will provide for a private relaxation garden with hammocks and stocked with indigenous plants and herbs, complemented with foraging opportunities along Una’s natural hedgerows. The chef will also have a patch for speciality in-season vegetables.  


The retreat will promote a plastic-bag free zone protocol; residents will be encouraged to use Una St Ives ‘jute’ shopping bags when shopping in town and will be invited to ‘park and stay’, using local transport links or walk or cycle wherever possible. An on-site ‘beach and back’ shuttle service is also planned.


The spa too will promote Una St Ives’ green-inspired ethos, using locally sourced organic Spa products. 

CC Leisure Ltd Director, David Cole, said: “Una St Ives is a unique opportunity for the discerning holiday home buyer looking to invest in Cornwall.  This is a beautiful, sought after location and we plan to complement the area with a stunning development.  The option to simply ‘lock-up and leave’ with the management initiative in place has been created to take the stress out of private holiday lettings.  We start building the stunning centrepiece in October together with three furnished show homes and a lot of the site infrastructure, all of which gives us huge confidence that this project has the propensity to become massively successful from the start. With prices starting from only £160,000, we are delighted that over 50 people have already lodged their expressions of interest with us. We are now ready to take plot reservations from investors who would like to be the first to take occupation with an early income stream.”


Frogmore Asset Manager Chris Betts said: “We completely back the vision of CC Leisure Ltd and support its plans to offer a new type of second home development in Cornwall. This type of build is a new venture for us and we are really excited to see the project take shape over the coming months.”
