House With A Lovely View Over The Harbour Within 200 Paces Of Three Beaches

Overview

Property

Updated: 01-Dec-2016
House in St Ives, Cornwall, England - The Harbour And The Island Car Park Is Just 100 Spaces Away In Opposite Directions

Located in the centre of St Ives this was a fisherman's cottage - we found a pilchard press in the floor. Ideal location to enjoy the delights of St Ives without climbing hills. You are less than 100 paces from the main Island car park. The shops are 200 paces in one direction and you have three beaches to choose from again all just 200 paces away in the other directions, so you can always avoid any wind. Apart from the shops and eating places St Ives is famous for its art galleries including the Tate (a 400 pace flat walk) and nooks and back streets to explore. As well as an indoor swimming pool St Ives has a cinema and a very good youth theatre called Kids are Us.

  • Sleeps 7
  • 3 Bedrooms
  • 2 Bathrooms

About the Owner

I am the Chairman of a family business that has been producing Cornish clotted cream for 125 years. My wife's family comes from St Ives and we have had this house for over 25 years.

The house was originally a fisherman's cottage (we found a pilchard press in the floor) and was part the house where author Daphne Du Maurier used to stay when visiting St Ives.

It has been enjoyed by friends and family but now we have some capacity for others.

We would like to share it so we are offering it for holidays at a reasonable price and now you too have an opportunity enjoy this beautiful place.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Within 200 paces of three beaches. Porthmeor is a largely surfing beach with golden sand. Porthgwidden is a small sandy beach popular with families. The harbour is turns into a lovely sandy beach as the tide drops.

Porthminster beach is only a further 500 metres and is in the protected St Ives Bay.

Travel:

The nature of St Ives narrow streets means it not very car friendly but you can unload luggage outside the house and the main Island car park is just 100 metres away.

A good way to visit St Ives is by rail. The station is fairly flat walk of about a half mile from the house.
