Property code: OC-PC464B

Escape to St Ives for a seaside holiday with an artistic twist – the busy harbour is at the heart of the town’s historic fishing community, but the light here inspired a whole school of painting and the local arts scene is buzzing. No visit would be complete without a visit to the iconic Tate St Ives, while there’s plenty to satisfy shoppers, foodies and history-lovers too. St Ives has four main beaches, which between them, offer miles of golden sand, azure waters and stunning views. To enjoy more iconic sights, drive 9.5 miles across the peninsula to Marazion, where the romantic St Michael’s Mount sits just offshore. Or, for a lesson in local history, follow the coast road to St Just, 15 miles away – the nearest town to Land’s End, it was once the centre of the tin mining industry, and the former engine houses at nearby Botallack cling dramatically to the cliffs along the rocky coastline.

Enjoying an enviable position above Porthminster Beach, this well-appointed ground-floor apartment is at the rear of a large Victorian house in fashionable Draycott Terrace. Head up the steps from the street, through the main house door and on to your open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner where colourful accessories complement a scene that’s both calm and comfortable. Snuggle up on the sofa, turn on the TV, watch a DVD or dock your iPod and listen to favourite tunes while you relax after a busy day of sightseeing. If you feel like cooking, all the essentials are here, and there’s a door to the courtyard area where you’ll find extra furniture for outdoor drinks and nibbles. The accommodation is all on one level so it’s not far to go for sleep – the double bedroom follows the styling of the rest of the apartment and is close to a modern shower room, while underfloor heating throughout will keep you warm whatever time of year you visit.

Steps lead down to the rear of the apartment where a shared paved courtyard area has bistro-style table and chairs. Alternatively, take a short stroll along Primrose Terrace to the golden sands of Porthminster Beach.

It's very difficult to fault St Ives as a place, so I think it would be very hard to be negative. Value for money on this cottage is good. Cannot fault St Ives Holidays as I've used them many times. Will be looking for more space next time and a sea view, but the cottage as a whole is excellent. Thank you to the owners.

The property is lovely, very well looked after and furnished beautifully. The service has been amazing with constant updates and reminders with very clear instructions. The folder in the flat is full of useful information. TV had lots of channels to watch. Parking is very difficult, with limited spaces I'd recommend reversing down of you can, yoRead moreu can also book car parking close by through the council website. Dogs are only allowed on the beach between 6pm and 10am (fine of 80-1000). Beach is very close by, be prepared to walk up a steep incline (if you have disabled or pish chairs etc). Driving around St Ives is very busy, if you can I'd recommend using a taxi service(I used A1 taxis, downloaded their app) the train station and bus stops are also very close by. Hide

Obviously I base my scoring on what we paid and competitors pricing. The location, cleanliness and equipment was all that we needed. The seating could have been a bit more spacious. We enjoyed our stay without any problems. I would also say that your information emails and text regarding our visit to the property and help line was very reassuring.Read more Well organised on your part. So thank you. Hide
