Overview

Property

Updated: 11-Nov-2016
Porthminster House in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Porthminster House Is Superbly Positioned On A Hillside Commanding Panoramic Views Over St Ives Bay

Porthminster house is a detached modern house, its five bedroom interior is exceptionally well appointed and uniquely spacious. Furnished to a high degree of comfort it is an excellent setting,with the added bonus of a large heated indoor swimming pool(children must be supervised) is unsurpassed. A stone fireplace forms a homely feature in the generously proportioned lounge, but your gaze will continually be drawn through the picture window and patio doors to the magnificent views of godrevy lighthouse and beyond that spread out before you from the terrace. Coastal and country walks are within walking distance as is the golf course at Treggenna castle hotel. Porthminster beach is five minutes walk away with its famous restaurant and cafes.

Just had to say what a fantastic time we had at Porthminster House in St Ives, we have travelled the world and never returned to anywhere before, so this was a first for us to return for a second time, and all we can say is we will be returning again.

Perfect Place in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great week at Porthminster House in St Ives. House is fantastic with stunning views from living room and master bedroom. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking St Ives Bay is a treat and not to be missed. Indoor pool is larger than it looks and couldn't get the teenagers out of it.. swim in the morning ...swim in the evening .....with a terrace at the side for hot days. Superb.

House is really smart and well looked after with the comfiest sofa set ever..hard not to fall asleep every time you sit. Lots of leaflets around the house with places to go and things to do and lots of local artwork on the walls. Owners are really friendly and left us a cream tea to begin our week with homemade scones which was a nice touch.

Had a great time exploring all the different hidden passages down to St Ives and the beach and didn't get a taxi back once. If anyone struggles with steps a taxi back from the town or beach is less than a fiver but only takes 5 minutes to walk down. Loads of spare parking at the house which is a bonus in St Ives especially in August.

Cant fault anything and we had a great time and look forward to returning in the future. Thanks

Fantastic location minutes to the stunning Porthminster beach, a particular favourite of mine. I stayed here with my family for a week. I woke up every morning to a swim in the heated pool before breakfast on the balcony with panoramic views, such a treat! Highly recommended, well worth the stay!
