Our Penthouse Apartment has amazing views from every window over the bustling harbour town of St Ives,the bay and beyond,and like our other apartments is only a stones throw from the town and St Ives magnificent beaches , .

Recently refurbished, the apartment retains its period charm with feature granite walls polished granite shelving, heavy oak furniture and angular, slanting ceilings, tastefully combined with crisp, white bed linen and sofas that you sink into. The whole apartment has a light, airy feel to it, with the rooms flowing easily into one another.

The custom-made eight-foot bed tucks in under the slanted ceilings like something out of a fairy-tale. The head and foot designed especially low to allow for the anticipated intrusion of any children running-in in the morning and jumping up to gaze out of the quirky, angular window at the early-morning rising of St Ives far below. If you open the window, the smell of the sea air waits to greet you and the distant murmuring of life drifts up.

The romantic, magical feel to this apartment has made it a favourite with couples but with the bed big enough to accommodate two children as well as their parents and a double sofa bed in the lounge, there is plenty of room for a large party to stay too.

The lounge has 2 large, comfortable sofas and a solid wood dining table and chairs, all over-looking the stunning view across the harbour and out to sea. See the sun rise out of the ocean over your breakfast, then in the evening retire to the enormous balcony situated conveniently right outside the kitchen for alfresco dining and from your elevated position, suspended above the town, see it sink down over the jumble of buildings and twisty streets, casting long shadows and a gentle golden glow that leaves you bathed in peace and serenity.

The large bright bathroom has a w/c,sink and a bath with shower and features the most amazing town,harbour and sea views.

There is CARPARKING at the back of the property which is like gold dust in St Ives.

St Ives

On 14th July 2007, The Guardian newspaper named the Cornish culture capital, St Ives, as its seaside town of the year. A star-studded panel of judges, including Bill Bryson, Rick Stein and John Betjeman's daughter, Candida Lycett Green, came to the decision after debating the pros and cons of 12 shortlisted coastal towns and cities from across Britain and Ireland.

Stein, known worldwide as the patron of Padstow but who has been going to St Ives since his childhood, was one of many keen advocates of the town.

"The thing I really love about St Ives is that it is on two beaches, so you get two aspects of the ocean, which makes it very romantic and quite unusual for a British resort. I think of it as the big brother of Padstow."

St Ives also scored heavily for its rugged views, exhilarating clifftop walks, the good surf at Porthmeor Beach and, of course, its cultural offerings, with judges keen to note its burgeoning new art talent as well as the Tate Gallery (specialising in modern Cornish art) and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Panel member Alastair Sawday declared, "I have a special love for St Ives...it has everything a seaside town needs". He went on to commend balmy beaches, great surf, fantastic fish, superb coastal walks and an infectious convivial buzz.

Some lesser-known delights of St Ives that came up during the judging process include the regular appearances of basking sharks and seals, the delightful branch line railway link to St Erth, the delicious fish-and-chip takeaway downstairs at the Porthminster Café, and the curious tradition of "silver ball hurling" - during which a silver ball is thrown through the streets by children on Feast Monday in February.
