With awe-inspiring views of St Ives Bay and the harbour, a long balcony and allocated parking, 3 Primrose Court modestly offers everything a small family or couple would wish for when staying in St Ives. Porthminster beach and its distinguished cafe is a very short stroll downhill and all of St Ives' restaurants, pubs, shops and art galleries are also within walking distance. There are tennis courts opposite (available for hire at certain times from the Tennis Club) and the nearby St Ives' Harbour Hotel offers a restaurant, terrace bar, gym and spa.

Equally, winter breaks will bring a magic of their own here with front row seats to witness some of the most spectacular scenes imaginable whatever the weather.

Wonderful views of Porthminster beach and the sea plus the tennis courts. Quiet area and parking. It's great if you are happy to leave your car in situ for the holiday and have no need to travel around Cornwall. Great access to the coast path (walking) towards Carbis Bay plus Porthminster Cafe, the beach and St. Ives town. Rather steep access if you have difficulty walking up hills. Great place to relax and make plans for the future. If you prefer to travel by car around Cornwall during your stay (but why would you as this place is perfect!) it is not so good as the access by road is very steep and narrow. We had a wonderful two weeks in October.. The apartment was lovely, clean, and had everything we needed. The Aspects staff were very helpful and friendly. Don't forget to wave to your friends and family at their webcam outside the office on the harbour front.

The property is on a steep hill with difficult access to car park.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

The road leading to this property and the parking outside, is very steep, so we warn of this and the flights of stairs up to the apartment in the description, so that guests can make an informed decision on whether this will be suitable for their party. Once you have negotiated that hill, walking to the beach or into the town from the property is a lot flatter, though unfortunately, you will never escape the hills completely when in St Ives. We do hope that this was what you expected from the description and photos. Tanya, Customer Services

Good location for the beach, just up a hill behind the toilets on the beach and five to ten minutes walk into the harbour front. Property may be an issue if you have mobility issues as up a very steep hill and then flights of outdoor stairs to reach the apartment. Balcony out of use but not much sunlight reached this anyway so wasn’t really missed. Lovely view from the main room. Tennis courts just below which can be a little noisy early in the mornings. Tv often went off due to poor signal.

Thank you for your review. The hill up to the property and stairs are certainly something that may need to be considered, so we do our best to warn guests of this in our website description and hope that you'll agree that the views you experience from the property alongside the close proximity to Porthminster Beach make the walk well worth it. Thankfully, the balcony has now been repaired and is available for guests to take advantage of once again. We do apologise if you found the tennis courts to be noisy some mornings but hope that some of the players put on a show for you to watch and enjoy. Hoping to welcome you back again soon.

Beautiful apartment, very well equipped, everything you could want for a fantastic holiday. Fabulous location, great views, the balcony is huge and lovely to sit and hear the sea on Porthminster beach, watch the train arrive and depart view the town or even watch a tennis match on the courts below. Loved everything about this place, quite spacious, and having a parking space is fab. The double bedroom has loads of storage, views to the Island, and the mattress is the most comfortable I have ever slept on in a holiday let. Will be visiting again!

Beautiful stay as always , the views from the apartment are stunning!

Lovely apartment with glorious views.

We have used Aspects for a number of years. They have always being friendly and efficient dealing with them.

Thank you very much for 2 fantastic weeks in this fabulous place! Very clean, warm, comfortable and cosy apartment with stunning views. It really felt like home, or even better. For the first time in all my travel experiences the apartment was better in reality than in photos:)
Hope to come back there one day.

Thoroughly recommended: fantastic location and view over the bay, and well-equipped.

Well done Aspects always helpful & great communication .We always have a lovely stay in this beautiful part of Cornwall.

What a great find!! 3Primrose Court has everything you need and is warm and comfortable. Cannot find a bad thing to say about it. We will be back definitely.

One of the best views in St. Ives. Excellent location, and even a parking space.

A wonderful two bedroomed apartment with stunning views of the harbour.

The views are beautiful. Watched the seals from the huge bay window and tennis being played every day just outside, there's never a dull moment. The town is a very pleasant, short stroll away. One of the cleanest places i have stayed. Very well equipped.

Lovely apartment in an equally lovely location felt like home road on way down a bit small but was worth it for that amazing view I will defiantly miss sitting out on the balcony having my morning coffee watching the boats go out I wouldn't hesitate booking this property again

Lovely stay, great views over to wards sea , great service can't wait to go back

A brilliantly located apartment

We are really glad to hear that you liked 3 Primrose Court, and thank you for your comments about the tv. The owners upgraded the tv in June to a 24 Samsung smart TV, with built-in Freeview and Internet access, so there should have been internet connection. We are sorry if this was not working during your stay and it is such a shame that you did not contact us at the time, as we would have done everything that we could to get this resolved for you. You will be pleased to hear that it has since been working fine, so should not be a problem if you are looking to return. Tanya, Customer Services.

Thank you for your comments. It's great to hear that you liked 3 Primrose Court and enjoyed the lovely views that you get from there. We made a few enquiries about the balcony, and don't worry, it is completely safe and normal. Tanya, Customer Services

The view from no 3 Primrose Court was breath taking, whatever the weather. A good location having only a short walk into St. Ives town. Lovely comfy beds and a balcony to sit out and enjoy the view.

Aspects were brill, not sure if I would stay in this property again as it smelt of damp.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. Due to the slightly warmer, more humid conditions here in Cornwall, being so close to the sea, and the nature of the materials commonly used in buildings here, some properties may be susceptible to damp. This isn't something that we have ever had reported at 3 Primrose Court before now, so we popped over to inspect the property after reading your comments. There was not a damp smell present at that time, but things can vary from week to week, so we will continue to monitor this closely. Tanya, Customer Services.

Fantastic location, amazing views, good facilities. Would definitely like to stay here again.
