The Porthole
St Ives Town

£448 - £1180 per week

The Porthole is a beautiful, two-bedroom duplex apartment close to the centre of St Ives town. Its sought-after location allows you to explore the town on foot with ease, from its five sandy beaches to its bustling shopping streets and many local, family-owned restaurants. There is so much to do nearby with all ages and weathers catered for. The world famous art destinations of Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Leach Pottery are all within a ten minute walk of the apartment while the nearby harbour is the perfect place to enjoy a stroll or a Cornish gin, cider or beer while watching the changing tides. It is also the starting point for boat trips along the coast to Seal Island where you might also be lucky enough to spot a dolphin or two. If you fancy an evening in, dine together around the family dining table before heading upstairs to the comfortable, galleried sitting room. Open the large Velux windows for views out across the rooftops to the sea and Godrevy Lighthouse before settling down for a family evening - with board games, Sky TV and a PlayStation all provided to keep everyone entertained.

The Porthole comes with complimentary allocated parking at St Ives Rugby Club taking away the worry of having to find a parking space in the hustle and bustle of the town and allowing you to spend more of your holiday exploring Cornwall and all it has to offer.

St Ives Town

Many of our larger town houses are situated just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre and these offer ideal family accommodation, many with gardens, something of a rarity in St Ives. If all that shopping and socialising gets too much, you can always get away from it all and relax in the tranquil setting of Trewyn Gardens, a real little haven, tucked away in the heart of the town.

So, for self catering holidays in St Ives with everything on your doorstep, the town is the place to be.
