Shun Lee holiday home, St Ives

Built in 1881 by master mariner William John Paynter, Shun Lee is so named after the tea clipper Paynter captained around China in the late 1870s. With prestigious views over the glittering St Ives Bay and out to Godrevy Lighthouse, this beautiful private Victorian home – painstakingly renovated in 2018 – still feels wedded to the sea, with Porthminster beach just a few steps down the South West Coast Path, which passes by the foot of the large garden.
