  • Bright seaside retreat for couples in St Ives

Property code: OC-34BELM

Set away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives’ town centre, yet just 400 metres from sandy Porthmeor Beach, this delightful apartment is perfect for romantic couples seeking Cornish seaside adventures. Popular art gallery, Tate St Ives, and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden are less than a mile from the cottage, as is the wide, golden sand of Porthminster Beach. Explore St Ives’ winding lanes, and discover your favourite galleries, pubs, boutiques and eateries, where there’s something to suit all tastes and budgets. Or try surfing at Mexico Towans Beach (6 miles) and make unforgettable memories at St Michael’s Mount (9.5 miles), the clifftop Minack Theatre and Land’s End (both 18 miles). The sublime St Agnes Heritage Coast (24 miles) is worth the drive, with the tin mine and engine house of Wheal Coates and Towanroath, the jewels in its crown. The South West Coast Path passes through St Ives and is an exquisite way to explore the coast all year round.

Situated on the first floor of a converted house, a flight of stairs leads up to the apartment from the shared front door. Once inside, you’ll find a bright and welcoming interior, with a relaxed retro style and plenty of seaside pizzazz. Pops of bright colour against the neutral walls and wooden floors add a sense of character and warmth throughout. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a lovely space, with table and chairs set in the bay window, overlooking the town and sea. Prepare homemade feasts in the galley-style kitchen, and after intimate sea-view suppers, unwind with some TV or a DVD in the comfy lounge. The bedroom also has a TV and DVD player, and an en-suite shower room with a heated towel rail. The bed’s headboard has been made from driftwood, for that breezy ocean feel.

This apartment has no outdoor space of its own, but with the town and beach on your doorstep, you can explore to your heart's content.

A very lovely, cosy flat with a personal vibe. Sadely I had to pay the booking fees again for my second booking. Also, the flat is perfect for 1 person (for two okay but a bit small) so the price is a bit high.

While the interior of the property was spotlessly clean, we were disappointed to find that the communal area did not give a good first impression, definitely needed a good clean. The tv was very tricky to operate and the signal, both picture and sound, was very intermittent on most channels, very frustrating!
