With a background in furniture design and art it was inevitable that Ashleigh fell in love with St Ives on her first visit 25 years ago.

Owning, and letting properties for many years; coupled with Ashleigh’s involvement in building projects, she brings a wealth of experience for homeowners and guests alike.

Ashleigh has a keen eye for detail and extensive knowledge of guest’s expectations within the Cornish self-catering sector.

In her spare time Ashleigh will frequently be seen walking around St Ives with her family and two dogs.
