Cornish Gems are thrilled to welcome Porthminster Townhouse to the portfolio of luxury Cribs in St Ives

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.
