The Penthouse - 11 Salt Apartments
Porthminster, St Ives

£860 - £2390 per week

Welcome to The Penthouse, a sensational, luxury penthouse apartment located within the secluded Salt complex, set in the sought-after leafy location of The Belyars in St Ives. The apartment boasts stunning sea views across St Ives and out over to the Godrevy Lighthouse and beyond to Gwithian, from both the living room, and whilst dinning alfresco on the wrap around balcony. The open plan layout has been exquisitely designed and comes with original paintings throughout and sumptuous throws and furnishings. In the spacious master bedroom featuring a vaulted roof, you will find the most amazing floor to ceiling window, where you can sit quietly looking out over St Ives Bay and be mesmerised by the ever-changing sea colours. Immediately below the apartment, within a short walk, you will find the blue flag Porthminster Beach with its award-winning restaurant and new beach bar. You also have the choice of the five gorgeous St Ives beaches, all with golden sands and with numerous options for water sports such as surfing and kayaking. With such a vibrant art scene a visit to the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden are highly recommended, or you may just wish to wander the quaint cobbled streets, enjoying the array of bars, outdoor cafes, restaurants, and sampling the wealth of small high-quality independent shops at your leisure.

Despite its stunning location and proximity to the attractions of St Ives, you may find the Penthouse is such a lovely place to relax and unwind, that you may well just prefer to stay in . All in all, a holiday spent at The Penthouse, truly is, a holiday to remember!

September 2021

Spacious, comfortable and well equipped. A private parking space in a gated area below the apartment is like gold dust in St Ives and a very welcome bonus! Lovely views and not far to walk into town (although the uphill return takes a bit of energy!). We have already booked the same apartment for next year’s holiday in St Ives and looking forward to our return. We found the Aspects staff to be very helpful with any questions we had.
