Step Inside

Step inside the wonderful open spaces of this beautiful Georgian townhouse set over 3 floors all set to impress for a very special holiday. Offering a considered fusion of traditional style with more modern Scandinavian chic, gather as a family or group in all seasons and immerse yourself in Cornish luxury. Arrive in to a spacious hallway with ample storage for all the holiday kit and lead into the light and welcoming kitchen and dining space. Dine in style around the large dining table with bench seating and enjoy good conversation and time with friends and family. The modern kitchen offers all you could need to fuel the holiday makers! A relaxed sitting room has been thoughtfully styled and offers views of the blue bay of St Ives. Movie fans will love the newly created cinema room with large flat screen tv. The central staircase gracefully ascends to the first and second floors, a stunning Georgian spiral staircase. The bedrooms are located across the upper floors each with a unique Scandinavian style with luxury beds and bedding. The bathrooms are no less considered with modern design against the more traditional features.

From your Holiday Door

From the kitchen door, steps lead up to the terraced garden at the rear where a large garden dining table and chairs welcomes al fresco dining. A seasonal outdoor pool will keep all the guests happy, take a dip before breakfast and enjoy the oasis of luxury. ** please note that since the images were taken, the grass area has been removed and the outside area has been much improved , updated images will follow ** Porthminster Townhouse offers a plum location within St Ives. The white sands and azure blue sheltered waters of Porthminster Beach are moments away or enjoy the rolling surf of Porthmeor Beach. Stroll from your holiday door down into the hubbub of St Ives and immerse yourself in the comings and goings of harbour life from the local fishing and pleasure boats that potter about to the harbour side eateries and bars offering a taste of Cornwall. St Ives and the West of Cornwall has so much to offer visitors from old fashioned days at the beach, surfing the waves, walking the South West coastpath to simply enjoying the coastal ambience. Day trips to the South coast come highly recommend as you discovered secret coves and the more tranquil waterways of Falmouth and The Lizard.
