Amazing holiday home

  • 5 of 5

I have to agree will all the positive reviews, having just got back from a week exploring Cornwall this apartment made for a ideal base. Very nicely decorated, clean, and with all our needs as a family catered for. The house is in a great location, just a short walk to the beach and with a beautiful view over St. Ives. Glad I choose to stay here.

Wonderful break away

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from a relaxing and wonderful few days staying in this apartment. It was such a beautiful home, with every comfort provided for; a well equipped kitchen, great showers and beds! But the best feature is by far its location, just a short walk to the beach and with a view over the whole of at Ives. There can be no better way to start the day than breakfast on the terrace with that view! We will definitely return!

Amazing seaside apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted when we walked into the light and airy apartment, it was beautifully decorated, comforatable and clean. There was plenty of information about the area and attractions and as a family with young children the washing machine was a bonus! The apartment is well equipped and situated in a great location, with steps directly down to the town and beaches. The apartment has the advantage of having two parking spaces, which was brilliant. The leisure centre is only a minutes walk away and has great family swimming sessions.

Overall, we will definitely be booking to stay here again.

Fantastic holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful holiday home, with lovely view, newly and tastefully decorated throughout and well equipped for a family holiday. There was parking for 2 cars which was a blessing for us. We slept 6 people comfortably. The pull out bed in the living room was fantastic and gave us 3 bedrooms. The owner was excellent in all communication. We will be back!

Location

From the Owner

When we were finally able to realise our dream of buying a holiday home in St Ives, we were delighted to discover that there was a flat for sale, where we had actually stayed ourselves, during a wonderful week's holiday in 2006. Another visit confirmed that it had everything we were hoping for: light spacious rooms, fabulous views and patio, and the all important (and rare) parking spaces. What's more, it was in the quieter, sought-after Belyars area of St Ives, yet still only a few minutes' walk into the heart of the town. We have loved creating our Cornish home from home, and have named it "Gwel Enys," which means "Island View," to reflect the beautiful view of the Island which can be seen from the living room and terrace.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

St Ives has four outstandingly beautiful beaches, each with their own character, and they are all within walking distance of Gwel Enys. Porthminster beach is the closest at approx 7 minutes' walk and has a wide expanse of fine sand and safe bathing. Within 10 minutes,the harbour beach is a suntrap in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the town. A little further on, Porthgwidden is a smaller beach with great rock pools and Porthmeor is the surfing beach, where lessons are available.

Travel:

Gwel Enys is easily accessible by car, being approx 10 minutes' drive from the A30.

St Ives railway station is less than 10 minutes' walk and this connects to the nearby mainline rail station at St Erth.

The nearest airport is Newquay, which is about 40 minutes' drive from St Ives.

Distances:

West Cornwall has a wealth of charming villages and beautiful beaches to discover. Penzance and St Michael's Mount are within 20 minutes' drive. Land's End and Truro are within 30 minutes. The Eden Project, near St Austell, can be reached in less than an hour. Also well worth a visit is Porthcurno with its fascinating Minack Theatre, Telegraph museum and beautiful beach.

Further Details:

St Ives is, quite simply, gorgeous! Artists have flocked here for many years to capture the light and exquisite charm of the little granite cottages huddled around the harbour. Now, visitors can see the fruits of their labours at the Tate Gallery overlooking Porthmeor beach. Further afield Carbis Bay is a little quieter but with another beautiful beach and there is also the huge sweep of sand stretching from Hayle, with fantastic rock pools at the Gwithian end.

The town has acquired something of a reputation for good food and there are many excellent restaurants to suit all budgets. Of course, there are delicious Cornish pasties and fudge on sale around the harbour, where the famous Sloop Inn is the place to go for a pint! You can learn about the town’s fascinating history at the St Ives Museum, and explore the narrow cobbled streets, where there are many independent shops and art galleries. At the Sloop Craft Centre, you can watch various artisans at work.

Facilities

From the Owner

What we love most about Gwel Enys, is being able to throw open the patio doors and enjoy the terrace as an outdoor room, with the large gardens as a safe place for children to play. Having Broadband and a second bathroom is extremely useful now that we have two teenagers! The two parking spaces also mean that different branches of the family can come and go as they please.
