Cornish Gems are delighted to welcome four luxury townhouses to the portfolio.  Superbly located on 'The Terrace' just opposite the St Ives Harbour Hotel; The Porthminster Mews Townhouses offer wonderful jackpot sea and coastal views and have been finished in duck egg blue weather board emulating a New England exterior feel with a luxurious interior design.  Each mews offers accommodation for 4 guests with private off road parking and use of the facilities within The Harbour Hotel to include the Spa.

The Property

Each mews has been thoughtfully decked out in a fusion of crisp whites and cool hues whilst more individual personality exudes through the feature wallpapers, soft furnishings and bespoke furnishings including thematic driftwood tables to set the coastal scene.  Set over two floors the accommodation is reverse level in style, enter to a welcoming hallway with two beautifully spacious bedrooms and climb the internal stairs to the light and airy open plan living spaces complete with juliet balconies and the postcard perfect views beyond.  A ship-shape modern apartment kitchen is well equipped for all your self catering needs and a offers central island unit with leather stools just perfect for holiday life.  The dining table is well placed to enjoy the views.  A comfortable living space with ample seating ensures a restful retreat as the day ends.  Each bedroom offers the versatility of a zip & lock super king bed making these superior holiday abodes the perfect choice be it family of four, romantic hideaway or friend's escape to the coast.


I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Porthminster Mews in St.Ives and was impressed by the property.  In addition, I intend to book again through Cornish Gems and will recommend to friends, family and work colleagues.

Enjoy some al fresco dining from your private decked courtyard each offering a comfortable table and chairs.  From the living spaces and front facing bedroom, stylish juliet balconies open up to welcome the fresh Cornish air and outside in ambiance.  The Porthminster Mews are enviably located on The Terrace, just a short walk into St Ives town centre with its cosmopolitan collection of boutique shops, artisan cafes, tempting restaurants and award winning galleries.  The white sands of Porthminster beach are moments away.  Recently voted by TripAdvisor as the top third beach in the UK (ninth in Europe) and a popular beach for visitors and locals alike for its crystal clear seas and beachside facilities including beach cafe and shop.  Choose to leave the hubbub of St Ives and enjoy the breathtaking coast road as it leads you down to the wild and open spaces of the west of Cornwall. With a parking space for 1 vehicle you are well placed to come and go and discover the duchy.
