About Jacky Pontefract

We are Bob and Jacky and have lived here for over 25 years. Before that Bob had a hotel in Carbis Bay. Jacky has worked in the IT profession all her life and for the past 20 years in the NHS - but is now retired. Golf, dog walking and gardening feature in our activities as does entertaining. We live on the property and like to welcome all our guests personally. In good weather we like to have a BBQ with our guests (which we provide), or a glass of wine overlooking the garden and the lovely view.

Jacky Pontefract purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Jacky Pontefract chose St Ives

It is alongside the golf course and we are both golfers, plus it has the most amazing views and we were looking for a new business at the right time. It is on its own private road and in a rural yet seaside location. It has a lot of land for the cats and dogs to roam. It it our little piece of heaven.

What makes this apartment unique

It is very quiet. It has a large garden with uninterrupted views over the golf course and the Bay. We are on the golfcouse - alongside the 17th fairway - and about 5 minutes from the beach. This is Porth Kidney beach which is nearly a mile wide, lifeguard protected and dog friendly. The village is a short walk away with 2 village pubs.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable property in a quiet, tucked away location with a wonderful view overlooking the links golf course towards Gwithian Sands and Godrevy Island in the distance. A very convenient location with easy access to the shops in Hayle or St Ives and surrounding attractions. The owners Jacky and Bob are very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

The Links - a tranquil home from home

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a peaceful, comfortable base to explore the best that Cornwall has to offer, then ‘The Links’ is the place to be. It is at the end of the road so very quiet with no traffic and secure parking.

We arrived in torrential rain (end of December) but got a warm welcome from the property’s owners Jacky and Bob. Jacky showed us around the property and let us settle in.

The property was very spacious for the three of us but also had a warm and cosy, comfortable feel. Having two bathrooms is useful and the two bedrooms are a good size.

The kitchen is long and narrow but cooking a full roast dinner including a pudding was no problem as the kitchen was well-equipped. The lounge is a good size with two reclining sofas – a very relaxing way to enjoy the panorama of the stunning beaches and estuary just a short walk away. The footpath is a few yards in front of the property’s garden alongside the golf course.

Local amenities include a local ‘one-stop’ shop, superb fish and chips (including gluten-free batter) from Carbis Bay, a few minutes’ drive or 20-minute walk away.

Transport is good including a train service to St Ives on the St Ives Bay Line. This was a lovely way to get to St Ives and freed us from having to find parking. We were spoilt for choice with the numerous stunning beaches and places of interest within a 20-mile radius such as: Hayle Estuary; Gwithian; Godrevy; Sennen; Land’s End; Marazion and St Michael’s Mount; Mousehole; Mullion; Kynance Cove and The Lizard.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share details of your experiences at The Links. It is difficult to give justice to the views and the location, but you have summed it all up very well. We sincerely hope to see you again in the future.

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a very sunny week here this year with our dog. We got a warm welcome from Jacky, Bob and Roy. We were blown away with the view of the golf course and estuary from the property and from the front room. The apartment had everything we could need, the master bed is very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. Pub within walking distance and the costal path a few hundred yards away! Perfect, we will be returning!

Tehidy Woods are about 20 minutes by car in the direction of Camborne and provide several woodland walks.

The Coastal footpath to Stives to the West and Hayle to the East is on our doorstep.
